I currently work as a Software Engineer at Google Munich. Before that, I was a Site Reliability Engineer at Google London.

Before that, I ran a one-man game development studio called Frozen Fractal.

I studied Computing Science in Groningen, The Netherlands. I am experienced in C, C++, C#, Java and Python, and have some experience with PHP, Javascript, Perl and Haskell, among others.

I am also the author of Taekwindow, a Windows utility that enables Alt+drag style moving and resizing of windows, common in many X11 window managers.

comment how to use crontab with &
Crontab just spawns a shell and has no idea what the shell is running, so probably the problem is elsewhere. Does the script itself even execute?

comment How to delete a file with a weird name?
Even if you cannot easily type the filename, deleting it from a graphical file manager should work fine. What error are you getting?

comment How to edit file on virtual machine?
You could try booting the VM from a recovery CD image (e.g. Ubuntu install disc), mounting the virtual drive, and fixing it through there.
