comment What determines what shows up in the bash history command?
What do you mean by 'closing the tab'? How should I end the session to let bash write the history?

As an upgrade. Perhaps I should make a Windows 7 VM first, then upgrade from that haha.

comment How to get a triple monitor setup for my Vaio?
I added my laptop model to the OP. Will a video adapter work, or do I need another video card? I can't just plug another monitor into my HDMI port and get three unique displays, right?

OP updated. Looks like there's a DNS problem. Does this exclude the possibility that this is a symptom of malware? (I'm guessing not.)

comment Computer is sluggish with “progress” mouse cursor appearing frequently
@Wil there were many programs running in the background. I disabled a bunch of background services, and now it's zippier. Sometimes I need to manually restart the services when I need to use them, but aside from that it's been a good tradeoff.

it's not just a one time thing. Users will put in human friendly strings, but I need them in a different form for URLs.
