comment IE tab for ubuntu
The problem with using an actual IE rendering engine is you lose all the awesome dev tools in Firefox/Chrome. I don't really need to know what a page looks like in IE. I already know it'll look horrible. What I need to know is why it looks horrible so I can fix it. Unfortunately, IE's dev tools have always and will always suck.

comment How to reinstall a package using apt-get?
@DavidSpillett, I strongly disagree. The man pages are usually very poorly written and are very unfriendly to newbies. For example, the paragraph on the "--reinstall" option doesn't mention that you have to use it with the "install" argument. A newbie might rightfully ask "why do I have to tell it to install AND reinstall?" An answer telling someone to RTFM is the worst kind of answer and it pains me to see it with the most votes, especially when a complete and actually helpful answer is near the bottom.

comment How do get Ubuntu to stop modifying /etc/resolv.conf
Removing resolvconf forces removal of ubuntu-minimal, which provides a lot of other barebones utilities, which are recommended to not be removed.
