I am a full-time senior software engineer with a sideline in senior technical management. I've spent my career working on, contributing to, using and promoting open source software. I'm looking for a challenge, either technical or managerial. I am a problem solver.

I learned to code BASIC on a PET in 3rd grade (8 years old!) and I haven't stopped coding since then.

I am also an avid gamer -- any kind of game, computer, board, paper & pencil -- and I dabble in various artistic endeavors, mostly to do with writing. I play the piano, wield Gimp like a wizard and know a thing or two about audio mixing in Audacity.

comment How can I edit/create new launcher items in Unity by hand?
Once you've copied and made the change, how do you actually get the new icon into the dash sidebar?

comment How to enable silent automatic updates for any repository?
Is it possible to append to Unattended-Upgrade::Allowed-Origins, or override it with another config file? I have some locally-maintained dev packages, and I want to override unattended-upgrades for everyone, but without clobbering existing config files.

comment Why do I get “connection refused” errors connecting to a server via SSH?
Try: sudo netstat -tlpn first. You should see something running on port 22, and it should be an ssh server. Update with the results.
