On a side note, I'm on robotics-related research teams and I've been learning a lot of stuff even though I'm mainly a programmer, namely electronics, more in-depth Linux and how holy cow useful SSH and SCP are. It's pretty cool to have a growing assortment of tools on your knowledge base.

Tell me about it. I have Ubuntu and Win10 installed in dual boot with GRUB as the loader. Windows did an update and managed to lose the MBR in one of its restarts, so neither OS would boot. Luckily I had a Ubuntu live USB nearby and managed to retrieve Windows, and lost Ubuntu but I didn't have anything too important there anyway so it was no trouble to reinstall. Still though, it could've been pretty bad, and Windows messed up entirely on its own.Shai'tan, about his issues with Windows and its updates, wrote:A bunch of stuff
