Sophomore at the University of Ottawa studying computer science.

I write mostly Python, C and C++, and JavaScript for networks and system-level automation, however I've picked up Java by way of school, and dabbled with Haskell and Clojure during a brief FP bender. Picked up Emacs Lisp during a bad editor trip and VimL while recovering.

Former web development with some knowledge of PHP, MySQL, and WordPress. Current on-and-off web app developer working mainly with Tornado in Python, and Node or Meteor otherwise.

CSS3 wizard/masochist.

comment How do I switch from Ubuntu desktop to Ubuntu server?
Not much of a scare, to be honest. Like I mentioned, it's basically an empty computer, apart from Ubuntu itself.

comment How do I switch from Ubuntu desktop to Ubuntu server?
Alright, I have no idea what I did, but I rebooted, and it naturally booted into server 12.04. Strangely enough, I didn't see any install/try screens (the server CD is in the drive, but not installed), and since it's 12.04, it has to be server, rather than a GUI-less desktop edition. Thanks anyway, it seems my computer boots into server through restarts, and without the CD. I'm not complaining.

I tried the second method, to no effect. After trying the third method, I get nothing. No root prompt, no command line, not even a blinking cursor. Luckily, there's no actual data on this computer (yet), besides the OS. What can I do next?
