I am a professional web developer with two degrees in computer science. I have a background in computer (desktop and laptop) and projector repair as well as tech support for multiple companies.

I do most of my web development with PHP. I have dabbled in Ruby and Java and would like to eventually become fluent in them as well as Python, C, C++ (used this a lot in college), and a few other languages. I am pretty decent at JavaScript. I know HTML and CSS and understand more than the average developer when it comes to web design and design architectures on web platforms (mobile, responsive, grid, etc).

In my current day job I find myself mostly working in Drupal 6 and Drupal 7. But I have worked with WordPress, OpenCart, Magento (ick!), OSCommerce, CodeIgniter (framework), CakePHP (framework, not a fan) and I have a dabbled in numerous other frameworks and CMSes. I am not shy at trying new libraries, tools, and systems. I have worked with MySQL, PostGreSQL, and Oracle 8i (a little bit in college). I am also trying to learn about MongoDB and CouchDB.

My skill seems to be in finding solutions to problems that no one else can seem to solve. Either through research or just coming up with creative solutions on my own. Often times I find myself asking a question on here and then discovering or coming up with the answer on my own a few hours later. I try to curb that so that I can give credit to those that really put in the effort to help. I also try to give points to those that help even when I find a solution on my own.

I am a nerd through and through and try to absorb and analyze every bit of knowledge I come across.

Thanks for all of your info. Even though I didn't end up using your suggestions I did learn a bit more and I think that that is point-worthy. So I gave you an up-vote. Thanks!

I was under the impression that LTS versions came out every April.

I am not using it for resizing. But it should allow for atomic backups, which is something I would like to start doing.

Every time I try to mount it, even using the graphical tool, it just mounts the SSD. I am not sure how, but I think I need a way to rename it.

I gave you an upvote for the suggestion that helps me provide more info. That should help get you closer to being able to comment.

I have never used Clonezilla, that may be an interesting solution. And I would rather just be able to load the drive up as an external drive (and should be able to) instead of doing some triple drive setup. I could do that, but it seems like a bigger pain than it should be.

I considered sticking with 14.04 and even burnt a disc for both versions. But I was doing this right before a hackathon, at the hackathon, and when I went to boot to the 14.04 disc it wouldn't boot up. So I was left with no choice really. I may end up settling at 15.04 eventually. But I am fine with what I got for now. It is actually nice to have a new install sometimes.

It was not. Just a single hard drive laptop. I will get you that output in a moment.
