Just annotations of little "how to's", so I know I can find how to do something I've already done when I need to do it again, in case I don't remember anymore, which is not unlikely. Hopefully they can be useful to others, but I can't guarantee that it will work, or that it won't even make things worse.

It seems that sharing the config folder of chromium via symlink isn't a good idea

Short story shorter: two Debian 8 installs on the same PC, different HDs, same username of an user. Why not just symlink /home/user/.config/chromium in the new install? Well, it seems your extensions and their data get erased.

Story's moral: do backups of such folders first. Even if it works with mozilla (if I recall), Google could well be "nah, we better delete this stuff".
