comment What does the noeol indicator at the bottom of a vim edit session mean?
I'm pretty sure that that's not what this flag means...

comment Yet another question about the slowness of the Iceweasel browser
I tested this out by adding a few different DNS addresses to /etc/resolv.conf, and the length of time that it takes Debian to check each one seems to vary but is generally around the six-second figure that you (experimentally :) discovered. That's all I can give you, unfortunately. Does the problem come back with a reboot?

comment Yet another question about the slowness of the Iceweasel browser
ping google.com would work, but so would Firefox if you're willing to install it. Actually, Firefox would be optimal, as you should be able to install it along side of Iceweasel and then test to see if the bug is affecting both of them.

The heck? That's not normal at all. Can I assume that you're not having this issue with any other program that accesses the internet?

comment Yet another question about the slowness of the Iceweasel browser
Iceweasel is similar to Firefox, right? If so, then you might want to open up the network inspector (Ctrl-Shift-Q) and look at what's going on in there. That would be a start, at least.

comment Automatically update hwclock at boot
What about putting that line inside of /etc/rc.local? Would that work? (just taking a shot in the dark here, chances are that it's wrong but if it is then I'll have learned something)

comment If I have a really strong passphrase for my gpg private key, how reckless can I be with my .gpg directory?
"Spoof exchanges"? Also, I may have given the wrong impression in my question. I'm not trying to be reckless, I am just a bit paranoid. I don't want anyone to get my keys, but I also want redundancy in case my hard disk burns out. So, a slightly better phrasing might go along the lines of, "If I want to put my keys on potentially insecure media such as USB drives, web storage services such as Dropbox, etc., can I just use the default encryption on my keys or do I need to do more?"
