comment How do I automagically update GCC to a later release without upgrading my distro?
Mixing unstable and stable sources is a terrible idea. Look for backports or upgrade to sid all the way -- and your question suggests that sid almost certainly isn't for you.

comment How can I upgrade MySQL in Debian using apt-get?
@faheemMitha Out of curiosity, where'd you find those postgresql backports? I kind of need the new version and slony capabilities and I couldn't find newer than 9.1, which lacks slony.

comment unnecessary accounts in linux
Do note the "unnecessary" part of the removal -- there are very good security reasons for running an active daemon as its own specifically limited user which has no privileges beyond exactly what it needs to perform the services it needs to provide.
