Started programming on Commodore VIC20, Bachelor's degree in IT and been coding for food since then (1997). Now working for European .gov institutions.

I am mainly developing in the Java and Grails ecosystem on Weblogic right now but I also have experience with Perl, C, C++, .NET, Unix and Windows programming.

comment How to determine the physical location of data on a disc?
I don't think you need to look at UDF, it is a filesystem and dd will take the raw data block by block. So if you get a read error, you'll be able to estimate roughly where on the disc it is located. If you don't get a read error but reading from dd image still fails, the problem is not with the DVD.

comment Thunderbird “undo send” feature (like in Gmail)?
This is easily done in Outlook and shields from sending an unfinished email by pressing ctrl-enter. In Thunderbird, I really miss the feature. It should be possible to indicate how much time the mail should remain in the out box before actually being sent. The procedure for Outlook: news.cnet.com/8301-13880_3-9929823-68.html

comment Cannot access logs during SSH session due to permissions
The root user needs to grant you the rights. You can edit sudoers file by running "visudo". On Ubuntu, by default all members of the "admin" group have the right to run sudo.
