comment How do I log out of gdm from the command line?
This doesn't work as recent versions of Ubuntu use upstart instead of a SysV init script to start gdm. Use "sudo service gdm stop" instead. Like Control + Alt + Backspace this kills the X server (together with gdm). To just logout the current user Thomas Leonard's solution is usually better.

comment Auto-detected mouse - disable 3rd button enumation
That's about the same as why I prefer to link this page: It gets updated for newer versions of Ubuntu so you know where to look if you upgrade to a newer version, and the page has all the information you need while I may forget something that's obvious to me (but maybe not to you) when paraphrasing or copying the text.

comment Unix Interview Question
@mpez: If you are picky then there isn't anything like a "file size on disk" as a file system doesn't have to be placed on a disc, like e.g /proc/ on Linux or some of the FUSE file systems.

comment Unix Interview Question
@Rachel: ls -l -L lists the files with some information and follows symlinks; the size in the the 5th column. sort -n -k 5 sort its input according to the 5th column using numerical sorting. Add -r to the sort command to reverse the sorting order.
