comment Convince apt-get *not* to use IPv6 method
Fixing the edge router/firewall/whatever is causing the problem is the "best" way to handle this. It should be returning an ICMP destination unreachable packet. This is either not happening, or something is blocking it. Either way, the problem should be reported to your network people.

comment What happens to the files when they are being decrypted?
It wouldn't consume any more CPU than reading a RAM-cached copy of a file read from an unencrypted disk, if that's what you mean.

comment Make disk/disk copy slower
This is a classic XY problem question. You should instead ask about why your desktop becomes unresponsive when you copy files to a USB device.

comment Native IPv6 router on FreeBSD
This is FreeBSD? How did you get an interface named "eth2"? You seem to have "em0" and "re0" but no "eth2".

comment Debian 7 - Kernel Panic after libc6 update
If you need to run a modern version of wine, it's probably best to do so on a distribution which already provides the necessary dependencies. Mixing and matching from different Debian versions is generally a recipe for disaster and should be avoided when possible.

comment Can I have the shell ignore the command line sometimes but not always?
Don't do this at all. ssh into the box with your own account, use another X session via XDMCP, or many other possibilities.
