comment How to get Colored Build Output from Make in Sublime Text 3?
Yeah, I wish it was possible. Perhaps pushing it to the author will get it done.

comment How can I make sure that my two USB disks are mounted at startup?
Are there any errors or anything of that sort in /var/log/syslog or /var/log/dmesg that are related?

comment What is the new “Actions” button in Chrome for?
Yeah. They added it in as an experiment a few versions back in the development branch, and it didn't have a box when they first added it. I want to say it was right before it went to version 22.x.

comment Does Windows need a 3rd party antivirus program?
@sidran32 All I have left to say: If government funded antivirus can't even protect government systems, how do you expect that antivirus will ever be able to protect the end user with complete confidence? If the protection fails, it's just like not having any in the first place. So what's the point? In the end, like this whole answer was about to start with, it's about personal preference. I'm not sure how that was even debatable, because it's not like I'm going to stick a gun to the OP's head and make them install an antivirus program.

@sidran32 When, in reality, not all antivirus products can even stop the simplest of viruses with polymorphic or metamorphic code.

@sidran32 Importance? Tell me how many times you've seen antivirus for Linux being mass produced in a software store. Not a downloadable version from the product's website, but an actual hard disk copy. Linux is vulnerable to viruses, too, especially when it comes to the Java drive-by downloads (which is why I refuse to install the Java plugin for any browser). The importance of antivirus has been set by the antivirus manufacturers themselves, and then passed onto the consumer to make them feel that they may get a virus if they aren't using their product.

@Hennes If my computer were to join the botnet when I had my dual boot, it wouldn't have been a very effective botnet since I was in Ubuntu most of the time. I don't even have Windows on dual boot anymore, so it's not a problem for anyone.

@sidran32 No one is "pretending" that it is the valid thing to do. This was a legitimate answer to a legitimate question. No, you do not need antivirus. It's recommended. There's a difference between a necessity and a recommendation.

Again, it's all about personal preference. I enjoy playing with fire.

comment How to connect three laptops
From what I see, it may actually work without you being connected to the internet. If I'm not mistaken, you're assigning the sharing to the actual network interface.. not whether it's connected to the internet or not. Try it and comment back if it doesn't work.

comment Chrome: Black Screen of Death
If it's not PepperFlash, I'm not quite sure what it could be. You should update your question, though, to show that you have PepperFlash disabled. It would also probably help if you posted the about:version stats from "Google Chrome" to "Flash".
