I am a developer, consultant, and occasionally writer. Some of my technical interests include Agile Information Systems, Semantic Web, Distributed Systems, NoSQL databases (Apache Cassandra, Neo4J, RDF triple stores), Visual Analytics, and Photography. I currently work primarily in Java, but also in Python, and (if I ever get time) aim to learn more Scala.

I also take a wider interest in agile software development (or rather, how to build software well, and foster teams that build software well, rather than getting hung up on a particular methodology).

comment Cannot scp file to an EC2 instance that I can ssh to
I am having a similar problem - I can ssh into my instance just fine; scp authenticates and connects (I see the MOTD) but doesn't transfer the file.

Works from Eclipse Juno to Word 2010, but not to Powerpoint 2010 - it loses the colours and converts some of them to bold text

comment How do I rename files with spaces using the Linux shell?
This answer does not seem to work (on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, at least). The answer from unutbu works fine though.

comment How do I access the host's hard drive in VMware?
This initially didn't work for me with Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTS 64-bit and VMWare 4.04. VMWare tools was installed during VM creation, but the shared folders module didn't seem to be present (howtogeek.com/howto/ubuntu/…). When I manually re-installed VMWare tools then it all worked fine.
