comment What filesystem should I choose for an SSD?
The Arch Linux wiki has great info on this. Ext4 and XFS both have TRIM support, so they can treat SSDs well. (It's off by default in Ext4, but you can enable it with the discard mount flag.)

comment In tmux session, cannot connect to X server after ssh'ing
Bit confused. Are you using the -X flag now or not? You can only do X11 stuff through SSH if that's set.

comment How can I pipe stdout to another program?
You're already piping to another program when you git diff | grep. Do you mean passing the previous command's output as arguments, as with xargs or $(...)?

revised GIF screencasting; the UNIX way
Demonstrate an improved method. Reasons: FFmpeg is pretty amazing, but it's bad at gif encoding. Recording first to AVI, then converting and optimising with IM has given me higher-quality images with smaller file sizes. Win-win.

comment How to properly lock desktop when hibernating?
I don't use xscreensaver anymore, but I remember its manual has a part called "restart xscreensaver when someone logs in", which suggests doing xscreensaver-command -exit; xscreensaver & on login. Maybe you could do that on wake-up to reset its state?
