comment Multiple Sublime instances using different windows credentials?
You should merge that bit about making a copy into the body of your answer. After some testing, seems to be a solution that actually works.

comment I cannot access my own laptop from my university's computer using Remote Desktop Connection
My ipv4 address is 10.220..* That is a private IP address. You cannot access that directly across the Internet.

comment Multiple Sublime instances using different windows credentials?
I would be fine with disabling the session merging behavior. I could live with that. Do you know how to disable that for sublime?

comment Multiple Sublime instances using different windows credentials?
The problem isn't starting sublime as another account. The problem is that sublime blocks additional instances from being started. runas works perfectly fine, if I don't already have a copy of sublime running under my non-privileged account. But I almost always have at least half a dozen files open in sublime.

comment Multiple Sublime instances using different windows credentials?
Well they aren't on my local machine. These files happen to be on one of my Windows servers. If I startup Windows Notepad as a different user I can edit them via the network.

comment Multiple Sublime instances using different windows credentials?
I have no idea what you are asking here. I can't start an instance of sublime with elevated privileges if I already have another copy running. That is the problem. I want two instances of sublime, why as my normal account, and one with a different set of credentials. Sublime refuses to start the second instance. This is almost certainly a SUBLIME problem.

comment Bash not working any more?
Boot your install media, and undo the changes you made.

Edit files with administrator privileges, because I don't have access to them for security reasons on my unprivileged account.

comment Multiple Sublime instances using different windows credentials?
The problem isn't starting the application with elevated privileges. I already can do that just fine. The problem is running two instances of sublime with different privileges. Attempting to start the second instance with new file results in sublime opening the file in my pre-existing un-privileged instance.

comment Is it safe to encrypt two different partitions with they same keyfile / passphrase?
You understand that with LUKS that you aren't actually encrypting the volume with your passphrase, instead you are encrypting a block of data that actually has your volume key.

comment Use modem for dialing, without a computer
You say 'land line' but can you be more specific? Is this in an office behind a PBX? Usually you need to press a button on the phone for this. Do you have a VoIP system? Can your land line be transitioned to an alternate number? Seems like this should be easy with something like google voice, ting, skype, or vonage.

comment Making USB extension cables using UTP cable
Sure you can get the cable cheap, but do you also have a good source of USB3 connectors? Looks like you would spend at least ~$8 on the connectors+shipping. So I am not sure how you are going to make your cables for less than $2. BTW, this might be a better fit over on the electronics stackexchange.

comment Desmistifiying SATA hotplug
My anecdotal experience with a half-dozen different computers/motherboards is that hotplugging works perfectly fine as long as you properly unmount things.

comment Desmistifiying SATA hotplug
The risk of data should be minimal if you properly unmount your filesystems/volumes. Don't simply yank a drive out, or you will likely lose data. BTW a link to a information from a ~10 year old forum post is not likely to have anything to do with the current state of SATA support, unless you have an ancient computer.

comment ssh to Linux hosts using a VPS without port forwading
My OpenVPN server is on a system with a public address. No forwards are filters required...

comment ssh to Linux hosts using a VPS without port forwading
Depends on the particular technology in use, and how your setup your VPN topology. But it certainly isn't required in many situations. I have boxes I give to customer that will work on any network as long as the network doesn't block one of the following for outbound (udp/1194, udp/53, tcp/80, tcp/443, or tcp/53). The OpenVPN client on my boxes are configured to try each port.

comment How do I block with specific string with IPTABLES?
The modules.dep strongly hints that your kernel doesn't have any string match functionality built, or that something about loading kernel modules is broken. BTW you may be better off using a http proxy for URL filtering.

comment Is it good or bad configuration
I think you forgot to ask a question. You seem to want to change something, but what? From what, to what? Why? Lots of technical detail is nice, but out saying what, and why nobody can help you.

comment Why can't “sudo cp” find the files?
Maybe something like this sudo bash -c 'cp /data/*foo* /dest' instead?

comment How can I have very large files/directories copied from one host to another “offline”?
I really don't think scp is the best tool for this. It doesn't really do good at resumes.
