    Anywho... here's why I am getting a monitor mount to add tons of desk space:

    Maybe he ate the old owner, and Inux is now in possession of a man-eating monster!

    Silliness aside, the old owner probably moved away and couldn't take it with him, so he left it out to stray.

    So, for those interested (probably no one ) I installed Ubuntu just now. I attempted to give Ubuntu a 15 gig partition, but I may have given it a 45 gig partition instead -- and giving Windows a 15 gig partition instead. How does one go about seeing if I royally screwed up?

    Looking at the properties of the drive in question, within Windows, it is listed as 12.0GB free of 41.8GB (it's a 64GB capacity iirc). When I log on to Ubuntu, it recognizes it as a 45 gig drive (if I'm remembering correctly). Either way, Windows nor Ubuntu is yelling at me via errors or blue screens or anything, so I think I'm okay...?

    Hey I have one of those too. As it stands I have no room for a bigger desk, and I like the overall "clean" look that a monitor stand gives but it didnt even occur to me to get one til deltrus mentioned it on facebook lol.

    Getting a bigger desk means sinking a lot of money.

    Frankly, I don't like the stands for my monitors anyways and the Gateway likes to bounce a lot at the slightest bump on the desk.

    New desk? $100+
    Monitor stand? $40~

    Speaking about phone plans.
    I pay 38.93 USD/month and I get 12 000 free minutes, 10 000 text messages, 10 000 picture messages and 3GiB data for that.
    It's a lot of money, but it's convenient not having to worry.

    Is that how your usage is measured over there? strange europeans :P Here we have set amounts of dollars, eg I pay $60 and get $650 worth off calls/sms based on call/sms rates, and 2gb of data, it seems more simple to me, but then again I never really liked maths haha.

    Yes, but what is $1 of calls? That would be a potentially fluid amount.

    Cool.

    I've used Linux a bit at school for programming, but nothing major. I do, however, know some basics, and commands within the terminal such as "cd" and the like.

    Since there are different rates in Sweden varying by when you call and to who you call that would be really annoying to keep count of.
