I am currently a Unix Admin at a well known British trading fund. I spend most of my free time tinkering with electronics and computers ranging from Arduino's to playing with CentOS on my VPS over ssh from my Macbook Air.

When I work on any project I like to learn by doing and so I find StackExchange perfect for helping nudge me in the right direction when I get stuck and so I try and give back just as much advice as I take.

comment How Do I install Ubuntu using UEFI
Yes I appreciate this but it did just appear a little sarcastic as putting "This probably includes the answer to your question." after posting an exact duplicate appears a little patronising. But I do appreciate that I was a little tired that day and so was just being a bit snarky, apologies if I come off as rude.

comment How to download an MP3 track from a YouTube video
Yes you could force the codec to be sure, I have added this. You could also use -ac 2 -ab 128k to ensure it converts at 128k
