comment Application will not let me quit it. What should I do?
If you closed all of your other apps beforehand it shouldn't matter too much. Are you sure you have administrator access to this machine? That's the only reason I can think of to explain what you are reporting, unless someone has replaced your terminal with a fake or you're not following directions. The point of these commands is that they don't ask nicely--and if your kernel and core OS processes are not following instructions, you have bigger problems on your hands.

Use any one of methods 2-4 to terminate the dock. If that still doesn't work, try terminating the entire loginwindow process -- that will end your session and bring you back to the login screen. The terminal command to force an immediate and non-ignorable reboot is sudo shutdown -r NOW.

Try killing the dock. It will restart immediately on its own, and should be more consistent with reality afterwards. Can you describe the problem any more? Are the windows for Transmission visible, and can you interact with it? What happens when you try to restart from the Finder as usual?

comment Lost my iPhone, no iCloud
Is this two different problems? Are you requesting a password reset from iTunes but not receiving an email? If your phone has been picked up by someone and you didn't use a passcode lock, then all of your emails on that phone (and all of the accounts pointing to them) are compromised.

RAISERROR should no longer be used in new code, since it will be discontinued in the future.

comment who were the first known people to play a reed instrument
Whatever dudes; 42,000-year-old bone flutes from the upper Paleolithic are freaking cool and worth talking about. Gimme dem downvotes

comment who were the first known people to play a reed instrument
@guidot I wasn't talking about the pan flute at all -- from a physical perspective, the flute is considered a reed instrument (by the professionals that play it, at least) because it requires splitting an airstream with a sharp edge. Strictly speaking it's not in the Hornbostel-Sachs 422 classification, but the physical mechanism is fundamentally the same.
