At the moment, I am no longer a student. I do have a MS (2014) in Mechanical Engineering (Control Systems), a BS (2011) in Mathematics, and a BS (2011) in Finance. I am interested in PDEs, ODEs, Complex Analysis, Control Theory, Probability, Kalman Filtering, and Compressed Sensing.

I am waiting to hear back from some universities about my application for a PhD in EE, or if I can find a job that pays well, I might decide to that instead.

Currently, I am reading Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut. In Mathematics, I am reading Complex Analysis by Ahlfors and refreshing myself with Abstract Algebra and Real Analysis by re-reading Dummit and Foote and Rudin, respectively. Afterwords, I will probably read Candide by Voltaire, a different Complex Analysis book, and a book on Measure Theory.

Recently read:

1984 and Animal Farm by George Orwell, Brave New World by Aldous Huxely

Will read:

Lady Chatterley's Lover by D.H. Lawerence and Candide by Voltaire more to come latter.

@ThomasW. I have been running 13.04 for months now this only occurred when tried to install wine and now I can't update since sudo dpkg --configure -a causes the problem to re-occur

Do you have to start it every time or just when you first install it?

@Mitch the battery has always been used on a Linux system: Xubuntu or Ubunut. It is an after market battery designed for the computer.

The battery charged for 8-10 hours. It was asleep and the time it took me to walk home and take a shower so 30-40mins.

comment battery issues with 13.04
@Alvar I was using in my office when this happened. I always used my battery to 0 and then full charged before unplugging. I came back from class, (went home as above) the battery was charged, so I unplugged it. It turned it on and it didn't respond. Toshiba P755 series. I bought the battery in March. I don't know how to measure the volts.
