I am a LaTeX user for several years now but I never took it much further than user level. Sometimes I wish I'd be a better coder but I am able to solve most of my problems with existing packages.

Currently I am in the last year of my PhD in Chemical Engineering in Manchester, England which means that I won't be able to dedicate much time to tex.stackexchange in the next couple of month. However, I am going through phases of substantial procrastination and if I see a question I can answer, I'll try to give a good answer.

Once finished with my PhD, I'd like to return to my home sweet home in Germany.

comment How can I view Ms-Office 2007 built-in help on Ubuntu 12?
I can not specificly help you as I am not using this configuration, but for other windows applications i needed to download specific fonts. Maybe this is required here too. On the other hand, did the windows help ever help you? Never worked for me :)

I did solve it but I can't recall now how I did it. Otherwise I would have given myself an answer. I used some boot repair distribution that fixed my problem. As soon as I can remeber I will post the answer

I will try this tonight. Seems like my extended partition also ends 1 cylinder too late
