I am a senior software developer. I am the build master for many projects, which means I make sure the software compiles on all chosen platforms and ensure timely releases.

During the day I work on with Qt/C++ and ASP.NET projects, I work porting application from Windows to Linux and Mac.

Right now I am working on my Masters in IT and on creating a Qt user interface to libpurple.

comment How can I use my SSD as a ReadyBoost cache disk?
@Philip The advice to move the virtual memory page file on the SSD is a bad idea. This file gets more writes to it than normal files, causing greater wear on the drive. Shortening its lifespan.
