Hello, world!

I enjoy using my experience to help others. That is why I am active at a number of other sites in the StackExchange network on topics that interest me.

valuable flair!

I'm something of a Swiss army knife both professionally and in private, able to juggle a wild variety of things at once. I've worked in every kind of business that uses software. I'm also very good with tools, both IT and mechanic. Whether you need software design or assembling some IKEA furniture, I'm your man for the job. I'm generally soft-spoken but driven by clear principles.

I'm a twin, I've lived in five countries, I speak four languages fluently and two more embarrassingly. Also, being a father routinely develops my patience which is useful for moderating on StackExchange too.

To learn more about me, see my Google+ profile.

comment How can I use encryption with Gmail?
It seems this would only use if both the sender and the recipient use Gmail and Chrome? If that's true then the usefulness is rather limited.

SOrry to keep this going in comments, but my current issue is that "Radio Status : Inactive" and I can't find any description of how to turn the damn thing on. It has a DHCP lease, it has a SSID, it has everything as far as I can tell. But it's not broadcasting anything.

comment How can I configure a HP ProCurve 420ww Access Point?
I just discovered that my router (mandatory, from ISP) has somehow reserved LAN port 1+2 for IPTV or something :-( When I plug the AP into port 3, it gets a DHCP lease and I can access it just fine, even through the browser! Now it turns out that the telnet console is horrible, and the browser interface uses a Java plugin that is broken on my Ubuntu/Chrome system :-/

Duh. Hit Alt+Space and see what the keyboard shortcut is in your language.
