I was home educated most of my life, I've always been interested in science particularly physics. I went to college for A'levels, then between that and University I did a year-long full time circus course specialising in Acrobatics and Aerial. I did my undergraduate degree at Sheffield, and a summer Nuffield research project on scalar hairy black holes. Now I'm doing a PhD in Quantum Information Theory in Curved Spacetimes. I have a lovely wife, Sascha, we got married May 2010. We like going out, walking, cycling or for a meal and the cinema.

I'd like to see some answers to this question include how to do it on Linux as well. I'm interested in the answer.

comment Weird Keyboard behavior on Ubuntu
Have you looked in System -> Preferences -> Keyboards, under the layouts tab? or maybe Keyboard shortcuts?

comment Remote control (via ethernet) a computer from boot for Grub choices. (On Linux)
Thank you, I'll have a go at that at the weekend. It looks like the sort of solution I was looking for.

When you say "install" the linux distro on the remote computer, do you mean just put a link to the different installations on the local computer. I would still want to be able to boot the local computer independently if necessary.

comment Why do ASUS computers come with multiple partitions?
On my desktop they live side by side quite happily, on my netbook I didn't leave any Windows on there at all.
