comment Disable the “You've gone full screen” notification in Chrome
Best workaround if you have other Chrome windows open: superuser.com/questions/423272/…

comment Disable the “You've gone full screen” notification in Chrome
Caveat: this only seems to work if you don't already have a Chrome window open... and once you open one window in kiosk mode, any new windows you open will also go to kiosk mode, even if you open them as a different Chrome user.

So then show it, but have a "don't show this again" button or a setting to disable it. Once you know what you're doing, it's odiously bad UX.

comment Attempting to find where my internet data is being used. Does this seem right?
Does NetWorx record the specific URLs that are associated with this bandwidth? If not, try monitoring it with Fiddler (fiddler2.com/fiddler2) -- knowing what request retrieves that MB will probably help figure out what's doing it.

comment Reputable Access Password Recovery
Edited. I've seen many, many legitimate business IT scenarios where the data's rightful owner is unable to access it (no pun intended), ranging from inexperienced/apathetic developers leaving behind obscure projects with no documentation, to incompetent employees locking data away as insurance in case they get fired.

comment How to get Microsoft Ergonomic Keyboard play/pause key to control Pandora?
Interesting project. It didn't compile for me right off of source code - it was the G15 libraries, actually - and it looks like it would require some more work besides. If only there were the time for it! I'll consider that a "can't be done" for now...

comment How do I use Chrome (Linux) application launchers in Docky alongside regular Chrome windows?
Fascinating @Orlando! The combination of class AND the separate user-data-dir seems to branch it off... into the same group as whatever terminal I'm using. :P Putting the launcher in Docky spawns a new icon, and when launching it from GNOME, there's no option to pin to dock. Any tips for getting it to persist to the dock?

Unfortunately, that doesn't seem to work. The window is still grouped with other Chrome windows.

comment What is the simplest way to build your own .deb package?
I was imagining a situation where I'd be packing something that I didn't compile -- just installing a bunch of files to various locations in the computer and depending on other packages. Checkinstall does seem to be the best package-based solution that I've found... but as I started looking at how I would do what I wanted to do in checkinstall, I'm finding that the easiest way to do what I want is actually just to make a huge BASH script with a bunch of echo > and echo >> and apt-get -y install. So you're right on both counts!
