I'm currently developing an Android application via PhoneGap. It took me two
entire workdays to learn how to prevent this application's screen from dimming

I spend a lot of time in front of a computer, and thus, a lot of time at a
desk. Because I generally don't like sitting still, and because I recently
learned that sitting all day can kill you, I decided to try to build a
standing desk. I'm documenting here a design that I came up with that is
inexpensive, easy to build, and has proven to be very practical.

*buntus as well.
This was the process I used to install Lubuntu 12.04 on a clean system:
