comment Create Virtualbox image of a physical partition
I'm not sure if it was ever different... That's part of why I didn't just edit the answer.

As of now (currently Feb. 22, 2014), the number of bytes goes after the output filename.

comment What is the djvu2pdf.rb in Homebrew?
You might want to read up on how Homebrew works, e.g. read github.com/Homebrew/homebrew/wiki. Basically Homebrew provides a bunch of formulas, which (as nodakai said) are Ruby scripts that install software from various places. The actual files belonging to each package are located in /usr/local/Cellar/<formula_name>/<version> -- or in your case, ~/homebrew/Cellar/<formula_name>/<version>. If Homebrew's installed in the default place, they then get symlinked into /usr/local/{lib,share,bin,etc.}; but since you have it in ~/homebrew I'm not sure where the links go.

comment Linux mail client which works with GMail and can use vim as editor
There is at least one Firefox add-in that allows you to edit any Firefox text field in Vim, but I can't think of the name of it (or find it in Google) right now. Similar things might exist for other browsers. I don't know, though, if Gmail's editor window is too fancy for that (nor even if you actually want to use a web browser at all).

comment Is it possible to get ESC to behave as an actual escape key?
Perhaps you could remap your caps lock key to C-g or ESC ESC ESC (the latter does exit from most things in Emacs). But then you'd need to use something else for Vi-style normal mode, like C-c (if that's supported by vim-mode).

comment Underlying Concept Behind Keyboard Mappings
Whether a keyboard has an Fn key or not isn't really material here. That key just happens to be part of how you hit Home and the like on a smaller-size Mac keyboard. Nothing to do with Unix tradition vs. Apple innovation.

comment Package cairo was not found in the pkg-config search path
Try adding /opt/X11/lib/pkgconfig to PKG_CONFIG_PATH. I don't have any Cairo-dependent code to test this with, but I think it might work.

comment Uninstalling Homebrew messed up git
You probably have them in Time Machine somewhere, either on an external drive or Time Capsule or in local snapshots. Try restoring your folders from there. I'm not sure if Time Machine can show hidden files like .bashrc; if so, you should follow these instructions before going into Time Machine to restore those files.

comment Escape key strangely captured by javascript webshell
As a workaround, try Ctrl-C or Ctrl-[.
