comment How to overlay a Lat/Long CSV and NAD83 Shapefile in QGIS?
In your Project Properties (Project | Project Properties | CRS), have you checked "Enable 'on the fly' CRS transformation"?

comment GDAL merge; Why add 0.1?
I believe this is done to avoid issues resulting from numerical inaccuracies: the int operator converts a floating point number to an integer by rounding down, so you might end up with a value for the offset that's off by one. For instance, the expression int(1.0 / 100000001 * 100000001) evaluates to 0, not to 1 like the algebraic solution. By adding a small value you push the result of the division over the edge of the next integer value if you're already close to it. Another approach to avoid this problem is to use int(round( ... )).

comment QGIS - quickly style categorical map
You don't need to set Min and Max manually: you can select "Min / max" in the "Load min/max of full extent" section and "Actual (slower)" in the "Accuracy" section, then click "Load". You do need to set the number of classes manually (it's max - min + 1). I'm not sure what you mean by "Plus that wouldn't account for missing values (e.g. 0, 2, 4, 5)?"

comment QGIS - quickly style categorical map
When you select "Singleband pseudocolor" for the render type, the second to last entry in the dropdown list in the "Generate new colormap" section is "Random colors". Is that what you're looking for? For loading the values into the value/color list, you can set "Equal interval" for the mode and then use the "Classify" button.

comment Simulate sun movement
Hillshading won't help for this application, since it just takes the aspect of the local terrain into account, but doesn't simulate the casting of shadows from other terrain features. For instance, in the afternoon the west facing slope of a steep valley could be illuminated according to the hillshading algorithm, but in reality it would be shaded by the opposite hill.

comment Unable to Produce Hillshade
Set both the scale and the vertical exaggaration ("z-factor") to 1. The equation you found for calculating the scale only applies if you're working with geographical coordinates (i.e. degrees longitude and latitude) that need to be converted to metres, but the data you have is in a projected coordinate system (NAD83 / UTM zone 17N) that already uses metres.

comment Merging shape-files freezes
@Alex: Another possible cause: If you have features without geometry in one of your layers, the Merge tool will freeze. You'll see an error message in the Log window in this case. This has been fixed in the development version.

comment QGIS 2.6.0 Minidump crash EVERY TIME I SAVE
We had similar problems after updating to 2.6. One thing you can try is to open the project in 2.6 and save it under a new file name, instead of saving to the same file. Also, we've since switched to the development version (2.7), which seems more stable in this regard.
