comment How to specify level of compression when using tar -zcvf?
This works beautifully. Also if you run as root, permissions & owners are preserved too. Otherwise you must specify. Also if it wasn't obvious "-9" is best compression and "-1" is fastest compression. "-1" still takes a looong time if you have lots of files ;-)

comment How to download all of package's dependencies offline
Unless I'm missing something, this doesn't solve the original question, this doesn't get "those dependencies (that) have their own dependencies..." In my case, I removed network-manager on my laptop (fixing a permission problem) and that's how I got here, no WIFI. My solution was to plug in Ethernet and reinstall network-manager and network-manager-gnome.

comment Why don't websites immediately display their text these days?
So why make sweeping generalizations about the Internet based on one random screen cap from a website with a low Alexa rank? The best answer also makes a bold claim: "nowadays designers do XYZ" should be backed up with some real numbers, like "5% of websites use Google Web Fonts as of 2012" or whatever it is.

comment Why don't websites immediately display their text these days?
As several people have pointed out here, there are infinite reasons for text to render in unexpected ways, as rendering a page is only limited by the imagination of the developer/designer, which has been the case at least since ANSI position codes allowed 1980s bulletin boards to implement multiuser chats and UIs with overlapping windows with drop shadows. Meebo was one of the first to reproduce some of these effects in a browser without an Applet. "Works the opposite as it used to" vastly over-simplifies the Internet and doesn't even refer to a specific time period.

comment How to repeat each line of a file, from the Linux command line?
I ended up installing SlickEdit (the original "E" editor) and recorded a macro to cut/paste the current line twice, skip to the next line, then hold down Ctrl+F12. If I don't end up buying SlickEdit, I'll keep an eye on these other answers for future reference, tnx.

For the record, this solution didn't clear up my particular problem. Hopefully I just need to wait another day for DNS propagation.
