comment How to make IRSSI running under screen in a remote system to beep on my local pc for new messages?
Why the heck is it not beeping for you within screen? Have you disabled the bell in your terminal emulator? As they say, It works for me(TM).

comment Need a “virtual FedEx” — some way to transfer massive files cross-country
maybe this is the wrong place to ask. You are probably right. I think this fits in the shopping recommendation category of being off-topic on pretty much any stackexchange site. If you are in LA and NY, maybe you could put host some equipment in a COLO somewhere. Then just go plug a drive into the server at the co-location facility. that isn't going to be cheap though.

I can't find the link/study, but I am pretty sure I read something about studies saying this 'new computer' smell is highly carcinogenic.

What are you going to do with the data on the NAS? Are you trying to setup a backup, or will this data actually be used?

comment DDWRT, redirect LAN IP requests on port 80 to external proxy server
What is YourIP=192.168.1.128 in your context? Is that the IP address assigned to the client you are testing from? It is the dd-wrt box going to be making http requests? If not you can drop the -A OUTPUT rule. You also, probably don't need the SNAT.

comment How do I install git on Ubuntu and manage my files?
Please see the documentation that @slhck, and I linked to. If you intend to run a server there are a large number of options that you should consider. IMO opinion it is unreasonable to expect us to give you an answer that describes how to setup, and manage a server given the extreme lack of detail you have provided.

P.S. If you can afford a few dollers for a set of videos, I recommend shop.oreilly.com/product/0636920017462.do. There chapter on cloning is available as a free-demo, so you might want to watch that.

Git is a distributed version control system. It will keep the files in ~/.git/ unless you clone, setup remotes or perform some other action to push or pull your changes to a different location.
