I prefer usually challenging questions, while I may spend some time on easier ones trying to explain something that used to be difficult for me.

My preference goes to algorithms, and C, a language that I've liked and known for a long time, while I like also to visit server fault and its many interesting and challenging system, DB, nginx, ... questions and answers.

Linux has been my working environment for almost 10 years. And a (few) Mac for leisure.

comment After installing ubuntu 14.04 my windows 8.1 seems to be missing?
There is some kind of fairness here: when upgrading from 8 to 8.1, Windows removes the grub bootloader...

Thanks a lot. ( @Hjke123 this should be the accepted answer ! While the first post gives hints on how to get the Ubuntu disk/partition IDs ...)

comment How do you repair an “input/output error” in an NTFS partition?
You could install VirtualBox and an XP on it. Prevent the drive mounting in fstab, (if USB mount: add the USB filter in VBox so that XP sees the "raw" USB drive), mount the drive on XP and run chkdsk on it.

Why the -1? DraftSight has a free version that allows conversions of that kind

comment Ubuntu Hangs Suddenly (Dell Latitude E5530)
You should try to install the latest 12.04.2 64 bits (LTS) (note the .2) which seems to be fine on my E5530.

comment Alt-Tab does not switch
Better yet for gnome classic users: when log in, just ensure (click the foot icon) to start Gnome classic No effects. The no-effect version seems to have Alt-tab working.

comment Alt-Tab does not switch
@Matthew Finally got it to work: in ccsm > Ubuntu Unity Plugin > Switcher, ensure <Alt>Tab is set for "Key to start the switcher", then "Back", then click the checkbox (to get it checked) near Ubuntu Unity Plugin - after a few warnings and key conflicts resolution, that should work!
