Well I had some crazy problem last night, testing the dual screen 
capabilities of ubuntu12.04 I pluged in my Desktop screen on my netbook 
and set it to have two seperate images, then I porceed to set the bigger 
screen to max (native) resolution, and have no normal orientation for 
the screen. I had Either clockwise or counter clockwise...wt... anyway 
setting it one setting lower corrected that problem, but still a minor 
annoyance. Also the screen gets recognized as 19" instead of 17".
I will be testing on my Desktop pc as soon as it's fixed just to make 
sure...but i think it's to do with the intel drivers.

  When working on a computer you have to know enough:
  To fake what you don't know.
  Google what you can't fake.
  How (and when) to 'motivate' the computer to do what Google won't tell.
