comment quotas on Cent OS 7
NOTE: Unless there is a good reason to use quotas, I avoid them as I have noted significant reduction in effective I/O throughput due to all the reads and writes needed to maintain quota information.

comment quotas on Cent OS 7
have you rechecked the man page for the mount options on Centos 7? It IS possible the some of the options have changed. Also, it is possible that the quota module is not present or active.

comment Can only communicate with NAS via one Ethernet adapter and not the other
Are your two adapters on the SAME network? If so, then you can easily fix this by putting the NAS on a different network and setting each adapter to the different networks.

comment If I replace a PDF file in Google Drive, will the share link stay the same, or will I have to give out a new one?
What about simply testing this out and see what happens. That would be far quicker way to answer your question.

comment Ubuntu is overheating my laptop
You'll need to provide a lot more information in order for us to help. To start with include a bit of your top output. Also include the error messages from your log files that show that the GPU and RAM displaying your issue. What programs are you using to make that assumption. Remember the kernel takes space as well as all its buffers so you might indeed have only 6.9 GB left.

AFTER making the sshd_config changes did you restart the sshd service? Changes do not take effect until a restart.

comment VMware Workstation 10.0.3 on Debian Wheezy compile error
Realize that vmtools will not necessarily compile on the latest releases of Linux. This requires that VMWARE update their tools. Second, are you absolutely sure that you have all prereq packages for kernel compilation installed?
