Increase main partition size in Ubuntu within VMWare Fusion

That was well nigh impossible. GUI fail, on gparted's part.

These steps won't be 100% complete because it's 7:15am and i spent the last hour frying my brain on this stuff (after the brain unilaterally called a break about 2:15am and i fell asleep), but they do fill in some gaps other resources out there don't quite cover. Some even seem to (falsely) suggest that unallocated space must be made into its own partition first. Here are some of the better links; my (final working) steps below.

Resolve a conflict to use local files after a merge goes bad in git pull

benjamin-agaric: looking for a little git help... i've got my repos on the server
I was pulling from it, but when I tried to push i noticed that i must have done it wrong and had the repository url as http
I changed that to the ssh style git. --and i was now connected to the repository two ways
the really weird thing is that when I pushed it said it wasn't up to date (could not fast forward), and when I pulled I got a conflict!!
