I've had a career in GIS since 2006, but it's also a hobby where this site helps answer lots of those off-the-beaten-path questions I always come up with.

comment In setting up dual Boot with Windows XP and Ubuntu, which OS do I install first?
@elfy I usually make a separate home partition because if anything happens to /, home is good to go, easily backed up and restored into a new system. That's something important to consider.

comment bulk/batch convert mp3 files to ogg via command line?
Can you elaborate on what "it" is? It would add more context to your answer and enhance its usability if the link you reference were to one day disappear =)

comment Wireless Card - Cannot Connect To Internet
When you flick the hardware switch from off -> on, what is the output of dmesg | tail? Sometimes, because it is a broadcom driver there is a hint there on what to do next. Try that and let us know.

comment Why do my (youtube) videos play for two seconds, then stop?
When the flash is playing, right click quickly and turn off Hardware Acceleration for the time being to avoid this crash.

comment Where can I get physical CDs of Ubuntu if I live in a place with limited internet connectivity?
@pawan He says 'limited internet connectivity'. So the OP probably has a slow ISP provider like dial-up or access to internet is limited to when the OP can get to the library or whatever.
