profile for Annonomus Person on Stack Exchange, a network of free, community-driven Q&A sites

I am a self-taught hobbyist and geek at heart who loves learning new skills and inferencing my Arduino to anything I can get my hands on.

Mod on: Arduino Beta, Community Building Beta (come check us out!)

Contact info/links:

  • Email: annonomuspenguin [at] gmail . com (Don't use me as a helpdesk, ask on SE. If your question is well written on SE and hasn't gotten any answers after a few days but you think I know the answer, feel free to send a link.)
  • Google+
  • GitHub
  • Twitter
  • Chatrooms: Charcoal HQ; occasionally Pin 13 (I own it)... I'm usually pingable there.

Did I help you? A quick upvote and/or accept is payment enough (fake internet points are valuable). If I prevented you from being fired (or similar), consider giving a few bucks to a charity in my name and email me about it.

Love my awesome screenshots? (How could you not?) Download Open source Greenshot for Windows and create your own shiny images.

Incorrect information? Comment on my post/email me and I'll be happy to correct it. I love learning and won't get mad.


My joke about my username:

I didn't want to sign up at first for an account, that's why I put "Anonymous Person" in the text box with "your name." I did end up signing up, but with a quick search I found out there were others with the same spelling, so I modified it to make me unique. I am a extreme grammar "freak," but I prefer uniqueness over a few letters spelled correctly. Also, I'm gaining much better SEO this way. I couldn't think of a better name. Tip: I don't really have a vivid imagination. :)

Actually, it stands for something really long that I can't remember... I should have it written down somewhere here... ohh plans for taking over the world??? Hides paper in desk drawer...


Formerly Annonomus Person, but after being annoyed gracefully persuaded by a few users and mods, I decided to embrace my inner penguin and change my name.

Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference.

comment Dual boot windows 8 and Ubuntu with Windows 8 Boot manager
@Arda how do you do it, then? Make another partition? I'm on a BIOS system with 8.1/Ubuntu/GRUB set up. I want to switch to the Windows 8 boot manager... how can I move GRUB without uninstalling Ubuntu? Should I replace GRUB with MS's bootloader with boot-repair and then install GRUB on a new partition? Any help would be highly appreciated.

comment Why do I always get a 403 error with phpMyAdmin?
Worked perfectly! Anyway, I tried looking at the logs (mine was at /var/log/apache2/error.log), earlier but it didn't yield any useful information, only AH01630: client denied by server configuration: /usr/share/phpmyadmin. I guess that tells me which file was corrupted, but it's not very helpful. Anyway, thanks again :)

comment Make RAID on one harddrive, but many partitions?
Just a quick note: (if possible) it will slow down your computer and not really help you if your disk fails...
