Resizing ext4 partition

Hey, everyone. Lets just drop this.
I lost my temper and spouted off.
Im sorry.

The simple fact is:
I was using LiveCD and it does use Swap on the hard drive.
/dev/sda2 which is an extended partition, was locked because linux-swap 
was being used. When Steve said something about unmounting a drive, I 
right clicked on swap, selected SwapOFF which immediately unlocked the 
extended partition. At that time I increased its size by 3 time and then 
increased /home to fill it.

Its all good. Please, lets move on. :D
