comment Tell aptitude to ignore broken package
You're better off using dpkg-deb rather than ar. ar is a dpkg implementation detail that may change in the future.

comment How can I forward a gpg key via ssh-agent?
This fails for me with the following argument from the remote host's gpg-connect-agent: can't connect to server: ec=31.16383 gpg-connect-agent: error sending RESET command: Invalid value passed to IPC. The remote socat then dies. The local socat dies and utters socat[24692] E connect(3, AF=1 "", 2): Invalid argument. This page leads me to believe that this will never work, because the agent doesn't store the key (just the passphrase). Has this been confirmed to work by anyone?

I'm guessing your last edit fixed that issue, Jonas? it's only binding to localhost now.

comment Dropbox is slow and only uploads at fraction of download speed
I regularly see speeds this poor. I'm not sure either of us can assert how common the experience is, based purely on our own, though.

comment How do I enable Automatic Logon in Windows 7 when I'm on a domain?
I can confirm this works with a Windows 7 VM joined to the domain. I have mild concerns about how accessible the password in the registry is: no privileges are required to read those keys; but the VM is used soley by me, so hopefully it isn't too serious.
