Github Profile

I love coding in python, C, C++, php, etc but I can code in Java. I have interests in (obviously) programming, robotics, photography, hiking, soccer, Linux, and anything intriguing and challenging that I have time for.

comment How can I recover an unallocated Ubuntu-Installation?
@GertrudeMauzikowski You always want to make a backup of whatever you're recovering, and you should use testdisk to recover the files to a new partition on a separate disk so that you don't corrupt anythgin and you recover all you can.

Thank you! This makes sense, but I don't think my BIOS has that option... Do you know why the BIOS has this option?

That makes more sense now (in an odd, M$ sort of way).
