comment Using UDF on a USB flash drive
Didn't work for me with a 500 GB SeaGate FreeAgent Desktop USB 2.0 external hard drive (not sure if it should since this thread is about Flash drives). Windows 7 always showed the drive as "unallocated" in the Disk Management utility. I tried several different option combinations.

comment Problem with git corrupted files
HUGE thank you for this answer. git-remove-trailing-garbage.py (your link with text "wrote a script", above) saved my bacon when I ran into that same ecryptfs bug you mentioned!

comment How can I make Firefox word-wrap text/plain files?
Yes, that works! I noticed that plugin, but I dismissed it since the description only mentions PRE tags and HTML, so I assumed it wouldn't work for text/plain documents. Thank you!

comment panel is on the right side (Ubuntu)
Are you right-clicking on a part of the panel with no icons/text? What do you see when you right-click? ...ah, nevermind, just saw your other answer. If my original answer helped, would you mind voting it up or marking it as the accepted answer? I'm dying for 10 points on superuser.com. :)
