comment How can I provide a SSH password to SVN on the command line?
@briealeida - I just wish it worked: according to the test in my post below, it seems it does not work, as a password prompt appears anyways; the same post contains a solution with sshpass (which does work for me).

comment How do I use command line and wmctrl to make a window larger than the screen to get a huge screenshot?
Seems I've posted a similar answer in gnome - Taking screenshots of all (or specific) virtual desktops/workspaces (or: windows beyond/larger than current desktop)? - Ask Ubuntu; there is an example of use of xvfb for nested X session...

comment Can gnome terminal be set up, to copy selection without prompt?
Many thanks for that, @JasonSherman - unfortunately, that only includes the terminal commands, not the output. I did come close in this answer, which I accepted (until I hear of anything better, at least). Cheers!

comment Throttling Bandwidth on Firefox
I disagree with 'data usage isn't really something that an application can "throttle"' - how are audio applications otherwise programmed, where you can choose to capture data at, say, 22kHz vs. 44.1 kHz? Similarly, all one would need is a timer for IP packets - and if the application already read enough data in a time period, it can simply refuse to execute read requests for the rest of the period - ergo, throttle. I would agree that specifically Firefox doesn't have that possibility, however.
