comment Running a script from ssh, logging out and continuing the script
I'm trying to figure out why now. I'll update the question when I do, but right now I have no idea.

comment Pycharm and Webstorm always on top unless minimized
Thank you. It seems like I should either delete this question, or your comment should be the accepted answer, since it is the closest to a solution I'll be able to find.

comment VLC - Play two mp3s simultaneously from command line
Thank you! I went with my own solution of merging the files because I wanted to do it immediately, but I'm accepting yours because it actually answers the question. Your answer also doesn't require downloading Audacity and figuring out how to edit and merge tracks with it.

comment VLC - Play two mp3s simultaneously from command line
Thanks. I didn't even think to try it within the GUI. I only specified command line so that I could get an answer that used the command line, and not to imply that I could do it with the GUI. So are you saying you think it's impossible?

comment Vim snippets pop-up but don't complete
@romainl I agree that documentation is useful, but for answering my specific question the most important part of your answer was saying it was neocomplcache. It's hard to use :help x when you don't know x (another argument against prepackaged vim).

comment Vim snippets pop-up but don't complete
This isn't the only problem I've run into related to not knowing which plugin was controlling what. I think I'll take your advice, and thanks for letting me find the answer in :h neocomplache. I found the lines in my .vimrc file for snippet expansions - imap <C-k> <Plug> and smap <C-k> <Plug>.

comment Is there a way to search a PDF for non-alphanumeric characters (e.g., the integral sign or greek letters)?
Looks to be the document's fault. The difference I notice is that when I select ПОЛИТИКА and copy it from the clipboard I get ПОЛИТИКА, and when I highlight one of the Greek letters in the document I get something different back - lowercase gamma becomes Ȗ (capital U-with circumflex if this doesn't display right). Interestingly, when I search the PDF for Ȗ I find instances of lowercase gamma. This effectively solves my problem! Bizarre.

See my edit. This isn't working for me in Sumatra or Foxit, but it might just be this specific document. I'm assuming that the Greek letters are shown as text and not images since I can highlight them.

comment SATA External Hard Drive Not Recognized - BIOS, Windows 7, Ubuntu, Snow Leopard (the culprit?)
Thanks for confirming my suspicion. Luckily it's still under warranty.
