I am a J2EE Developer with 10 years of work experience.

I am always looking to find ways to automate stuff and finding better (i.e. more automated) ways of doing things. This has led me on the path of the AutoHotKey on Windows and has made me into a LifeHacker addict. I hate using the mouse and am a self-admitted Keyboard junkie.

On my next Holiday Someday I plan to spend all of a vacation playing Skyrim

comment How to exclude files(not folders) from dropbox sync?
You may not need to worry about big files being synced. Dropbox does not sync the whole file only the portion that changed. Look at serverfault.com/questions/52861/…. In practice, I have seen this happen on a number of big files which are changed frequently.

comment Why is YouTube buffering/loading behavior so horrible in Chrome?
Please note that for Firefox (25.0.1), Youtube Center currently suffers from layout issues resulting in youtube pages being cut off at the top. SmartVideo is great and works without any issues.

comment Map remote drive in Windows over SSH
ExpanDrive works, but it's speed/performance pales in comparison to sftp-net-drive.

swish-ftp would not work for other programs but sftp-net-drive (the free version) is good enough !
