http://ubuntuforums.org – Here we go again: My dad caught me running a Ubuntu Virtual Machine on top of my Mac OS X Lion 10.7.3 Host and he immediately took my Ethernet Cable away from me and my WIFI on my Apple IPhone 4 is NOT working either because I hit Verizon's 2GB Cap for my Personal Hotspot making it useless as I am now unable to continue Alpha Testing Ubuntu 12.04 until next month's billing cycle on March 8th!
