comment How can I merge the gnome clipboard and the X selection?
Nope. For various other reasons, I've switched to KDE recently. klipper is acceptable for kde + synergy, but I know of no usable solution for gnome + synergy. Problems with autocutsel, parcellite and glipper are all laid out in existing answers and comments on this question.

comment Why does less tail mode stop working?
FYI, this remains unanswered because the file in question was not being rolled/rotated/recreated.

comment How to store SSH keys?
This only works if you have some other method of accessing the servers that that private key provides access to. You can upload the new public key only if you have that backup access.

comment Access internal IP using public IP
I have a very similar setup, except I'm using domain names. So from outside the network my domain resolves to my external IP, and from inside, it resolves to the internal IP. I have laptops and smartphones that frequently access from inside and outside, so hacking the hosts file wouldn't work. What I have done is basically what your (Pure.Krome) other answer suggests, only instead of using an external server I'm just telling the DHCP server on the router to prepend an internal DNS server. It mostly works, but there are annoying lags when switching networks before things start resolving.

comment Considerations for keyboard with integrated mouse for HTPC dedicated to the TV?
Why are you doing a lot of mouse work on an HTPC? Is everything browser based?

comment Access internal IP using public IP
What about a laptop or smartphone that is frequently accessing the same site via internal or external network?

If you can buy a hard drive enclosure, you can also buy blank CDs.

There are also android and windows mobile versions of KeePass, and probably others.

comment Can I permanently prevent Java security updates from installing Yahoo Toolbar?
I didn't vote, but this particular answer is recommending that you disable automatic updates for software that has had recent security vulnerabilities. That's a bad idea. It also doesn't answer the question.

comment How can I merge the gnome clipboard and the X selection?
I tried Glipper, which had a decent workaround for the selection problem: when you've destroyed your previous selection by selecting something else, Glipper lets you access the history and get back what you had. However, it interferes with Synergy clipboard sharing, which is a non-starter. :(

comment How can I merge the gnome clipboard and the X selection?
parcellite appears to successfully merge the clipboards. It does not solve the latter problem, which is pasting over a selection. I like that I can paste a single buffer with either control-v or middle button. I do not like (and would like to disable) selection as copy.

comment Lossless video editing on Linux?
I think the ability to cut at arbitrary frame boundaries might be encoding-specific.

This looked really promising, but running it doesn't appear to change anything. :(

comment “Detach” and “Reattach” xterms across X sessions?
With screen you can actually have different xterms with different terminals. Just use screen -x and switch each xterm to it's own screen. One xterm can have screen 1, another screen 2, etc. This could all be scripted, too... "xterm -e screen -x -p 1 &" etc.

I've hit this, too. Are you using vpnc-connect/vpnc-disconnect by any chance?

tail -f does work, but I'd prefer to work within less.

No, the logs are not rotating. It's the same file.

comment looping through `ls` results in bash shell script
Cool. I should say that you can also use $EDITOR filelist.txt in between the two commands. Lots of stuff you can do in an editor that is easier than on the command line. Not relevant to this question, though.
