this is a whole new area for me. Been with Windows and Windows only since 3.1.
First thing I had to do was disable the damn touchpad. Annoying thing....
Have you come across BURG before? It's a variant of GRUB but it's a graphical bootloader:



Looks a lot nicer than the GRUB2 menu!

Here's the page if you're interested in it: burg - Brand-new Universal loadeR from GRUB - Google Project Hosting

I haven't heard of hardly anything relating to this stuff yet. It's all new stuff to me.
Although, I agree that the GRUB2 loader is quite bleh.

It took me ages to set it up, but I've finally got it how I like it. There's plenty of tutorials around if you ever fancy it: How to install Burg boot loader in Ubuntu 12.04, 12.10 Quantal Quetzal and LinuxMint13

Thanks!
Slowly working my way into learning, bit by bit.

I did manage to import some pictures of the Rocky Mountains that I took last year to use as wallpapers. :P
It's a start,lol.

Give me a shout if you want a hand setting it up, I'm no expert but I've done it dozens of times now, lol.

Woah! Ubuntu has changed a lot since I last used it. I think my 'latest' live CD is 10.10.

It's good to be back
Welcome back Jaidyn, sounds like you were busy

3. Resign.

And I'm thinking which option to choose...

Edit: in case you wonder what's the harm in going with option 1.
Well, there are some a**holes you just can't work with.
Even if I clear the review and get confirmed, this issue is going to arise at the time of my half yearly appraisals as well. If you know what I mean!
I'm just so p*ssed off ATM.

</>rant over.
unlucky dinesh, stick at it as it will come round

My step-brother turned 18 yesterday, so I have had a few drinks with him and another friend; guess we are all just taking advantage of being able to drink now

I'm still slightly dizzy but I'm okay!
