I aspire to be a video game programmer. In reality, it seems that I'll be pursuing a CE (hardware) degree, which I'm hoping will open the door to handheld gaming.

I'm fluent in C, C++, PHP, and regular old SQL. I know HTML and CSS, and work my hardest to keep my code as close to the standards as possible, except where Internet Explorer doesn't support any standard way to do what I want.

I play piano and tuba, and love to write my own music when I can find the time. My favorite video game is Final Fantasy IX.

comment How do you convince Ubuntu's installer to put GRUB on a separate partition?
I usually manually set up my partitions; I don't trust automatically generated partition layouts, even if they're correct. And thank goodness Microsoft is getting fined for this practice; they need more than a slap on the wrist I say.

comment Ubuntu 12.04 stopped suddenly to recognize all usb storage.
Also, Nautilus usually tries to mount the drives somewhere in /media; you might check there and see if maybe it's just not showing up in the file manager. It'll be either /media/[Drive Label] or /media/[UUID] by default, I think.

I wanted to add the tag "flash-memory" to this post, as it's quite relevant, but I couldn't find an existing tag for it and my rep isn't high enough. Am I calling it the wrong thing maybe? Also, of course I'm an Android. I just got really good at solving captchas.

@fluteflute I should really check the timestamps before committing necromancy :D Sorry about that.

comment Trying to use gnome-shell but it will not work
@fluteflute I don't think that's correct: Unity shows up as a Compiz plugin. I'm pretty sure it's running Compiz (Fusion) as the window manager.
