comment What is the real difference between “apt-get” and “aptitude”? (How about “wajig”?)
Its worth noting that aptitude is slated for removal from the default install on the next version of Ubuntu (although you could always install it using apt-get afterwards)

comment Looking for an old classical Unix toolkit textbook
Tested Google Books from a US machine I have remote access to. Still no dice getting a PDF version, but I'm convinced its the book you want.

I'm outside the US too and can only see snippets when searching by keywords. I suspect the full book isn't on Google books.No ebooks or PDFs around that I can find, but you should be able to pick up a secondhand dead tree version from that Amazon link I posted.

Quite fancy this book myself, it uses the popular dungeon-exploration game "rogue" in its examples :-D

Oh I have MonoDevelop set up too, but sometimes I need to work over a console-only SSH session

True, but not all Unix/Linux users are Ubuntu users. The Ubuntu SE site was in public beta first too...

Not familiar with IDM, but I suspect this would be possible. Its just a matter of knowing the correct URL of the video, which FlashGot should take care of for you
