  • Python aficionado (both Monty's and Guido's versions)
  • Regex hobbyist
  • Avid musician (piano, drums and percussion, currently playing with the Symphony Orchestra of the University of Applied Sciences in Ulm and the Rock Band of the University of Applied Sciences in Neu-Ulm)

My professional life so far:

  • Studied medicine in Freiburg (Germany), Zürich (Switzerland) and Seattle, WA
  • Worked as a doctor in Internal and Intensive Care Medicine, then switched to Microbiology, Virology and Epidemiology
  • Always loved chasing bugs (microbial and logical)
  • Back to school a few years ago for an MBA in Hospital Management
  • Since 2010: Working as a Professor of Medicine and Health Technologies at the University of Applied Sciences in Ulm, teaching in the faculty of Computer Science (yeah, sounds weird, I know)

If you're interested in a (German) BSc program in Health Information Management, where you'll learn about the intricate connections between IT, management, and medicine, check out our homepage!

Funny StackOverflow achievements:

  • Sole owner (as of July 2013) of the regex-negation badge
  • Winner of the gold Java badge despite never having written a single program in this language. (Being a regex one-trick pony pays off in unexpected ways :))

Thanks, I haven't bought the Surface yet, and I know about the Pro, but I really want to try the Surface RT (lighter, cheaper, longer battery life, Jeff likes it...)

I do have Python 2.7.3 installed on my iPhone, too. Something like that would be great for Surface...

comment Why are some (all?) files bigger on Mac OS X?
...and I guess they did it so people would finally stop complaining "My new 3 TB drive only has 2.7 TB! I'm being robbed!"

comment Python auto indents when I copy/paste
This is not a programming question according to the FAQ. You should ask this on SuperUser (or read the manual of your editor), because it's not Python, it's your editor that does the indenting.

comment Long boot time if the computer is not connected to the domain
Do they happen to have network printers/folder shares/network drives configured? Looking for those takes a while.

Then you or Ole should edit the answer to correct it. If someone doesn't read the fine print, he will get burned badly by this answer.
