comment How to kill a process started with a different user without being root or sudoer?
What kind of program are we talking about? It would be difficult in the general case, but in some cases (such as apache or an app that you can modify yourself) it would be easier.

comment User Permissions: Daemon and User
I'm no expert on lighttpd and a process can change its own umask at will, but you could try adding the umask command to lighttpd's startup script. If that doesn't help, have a look at lighttpd's or wordpress' documentation.

comment User Permissions: Daemon and User
Yes it can be done with ACLs too, but most distros do not enable them by default and I think it's more difficult. It also allows more fine grained control though. See man setfacl if you're interested.

PAE makes memory access slightly slower. VERY slightly. Other than that, no.

As a last resort I'd try setting it to Control_L instead.

comment My control key doesn't work, how do I fix it?
Are you just having trouble with certain key combos and the key works fine otherwise? Or doesn't it work at all? If the former, it might be that you have compiz keyboard shortcuts configured for Control_R T and Conntrol_R Shift T and compiz takes precedence over firefox and gnome-terminal.

comment What's the difference between /etc/bash.bashrc and ~/.bashrc? Which one should I use?
Strictly speaking, you're not enforcing anything in /etc/bash.bashrc because users can always change it in their own ~/.bashrc

comment Remotely make the computer beep on built-in speaker
gnome-volume-control can be used to control the built-in speaker separately. What do you mean by disabled? What happens when you run gnome-volume-control from a command line?

comment Remotely make the computer beep on built-in speaker
At least on my pc I can mute the speakers with gnome-volume-control. And since I can't stand the beeping, I usually do.
