I'm Jamie, I'm studying Physics and Astronomy at the University of Manchester School of Physics and Astronomy. I've been running Ubuntu since about 9.04 but I've used other distributions in between. I'm hoping to become a physics teacher soon, but I'm taking a year out before starting training.

Hello! Thank you for your response. That does seem like a very good solution, could you (or someone else) give me some instructions on installing and setting up an SSH server?

Dropbox wouldn't really do because I'd have to upload the whole hard drive so that they could access a few files. I'll try the python one now. Is it secure?

@zloster yeah, some way of accessing the hard drive to copy a file or two over without having to email me and say "will you send foo.txt, I think it's in 'My Documents' or maybe 'Documents backup' or 'Documents old (4)'"

Yeah, that didn't seem to work, I think it made it worse somehow. We'll try the driver tomorrow.

@Shahbaz.krk you might be missing a proprietary graphics driver, but I don't know how to install them on elementary. Post some info about what graphics card you have
