I'm a very dedicated developer, working with a multitude of languages in order to provide the best solution possible to my client. I started with PHP, but now also use Ruby, Objective-C and other languages where appropriate.

Currently, I'm working as Lead Developer at Made Media, a rapidly growing digital media agency based in Birmingham, England. In the main, we handle arts and media clients, providing their websites and a fully integrated ticketing path that connects to their back office systems. A strong understanding of the system loads caused by tickets going on sale for major events has been critical throughout, as has how to counteract that by extensive use of caching and horizontal scaling.

I've accepted your answer as it would at least solve part of my problems!

Jorge - thanks, but I believed that since Mint is a derivative of Ubuntu that qualified it for appearing here, particular as the problem also occurred on a stock UNR installation. It would appear to be an issue with the keyboard mappings shipped with the current releases. I am going to downgrade to UNR 10.04 to see if that solves it.

I tried my girlfriend on Jolicloud - she hated it! I think the best plan is for me to downgrade to 10.04 or earlier, to see if that fixes it. Thank you anyway!

The keyboard was working fine during installation - I believed the problems were sorted because of that! But once it rebooted after installation, no such luck. I haven't tried reinstalling the old version again yet, but if I have to, I will.
