comment How to have external requests from a LAMP server bypass internet censorship?
Great answer, I haven't had time to test it yet but I've marked it as accepted anyway because I suspect that at least one of the possible solutions you mention will meet my needs. Thanks!

comment What is causing a tiled screen during installation of 12.04 on Emachines EL1200-01e?
That's a good sign. Now try loading a more advanced graphical environment (maybe boot into the liveUSB but don't install (click "Try Ubuntu") and leave it there for awhile. Ideally you could also boot into another OS, such as Windows, or another distribution of Linux, and test their as well.

Sorry by my comment I didn't mean that you needed to reset the BIOS settings, I was just wondering if you ever saw tiling during the BIOS POST screen or in the BIOS setup screen--this would be a sure sign of a dying GPU. Generally the best way to test if something is a hardware problem is to see if the same thing happens across different OSes.

What Lord of Time said and also: do you have normal graphics while the BIOS is loading/can you enter the BIOS setup screen with normal graphics? I've seen dying GPUs that look like this before.

@DarthAndroid Yeah, a VPN would be ideal. Unfortunately I was never able to get openVPN configured properly on my server--actually I suspect that it is a router problem on that network. So I started using SSH instead, which I actually now prefer because it allows me to choose what traffic to pass through the tunnel and what traffic to not to.
