Show the number of reboots before next disk check on Ubuntu

I find it a little annoying when I boot up my machine and check disk utility pops up at the minute it's least needed. I am sure there is a setting that Linux experts know of but for us noobs, we need someone to hold our hand. I give you, or actually my favorite site Lifehacker gives you showfsck utility.

All you need to do is:

sudo apt-get install showfsck

after install:

sudo showfsck


Pretty damn handy, if you ask me.
