The guy you see to the left. Electrical/electronics engineering student mostly doing embedded development. Linux user since '05.

You might want to check what I am up to on my blog (in Portuguese mostly), my Twitter or my GitHub, or my skills are available on LinkedIn. Alternatively, if you want to see what I'm listening to, check my last.fm or Spotify profiles.

If you have any doubt/problem about my questions/answers, comment on them.

I will always try to comment why did I downvote, and will remove those downvotes if questions/answers are subsequently improved.

I don't know, sorry. As far as I can tell, using an adapter with lower output might result in erratic operation or no charging.

comment USB Stick Doesn't Mount But Is Detected
Try it on a Linux system and see what happens (anything in dmesg? error messages?). It looks like a filesystem problem.

comment Is there a modern browser that runs on Windows 3.1?
@Moab not a good idea to upgrade if the computer is being used to control equipment. That computer is better left alone (and unnetworked if possible).
