At the time of writing this, I have 6+ years of work experience, mostly web projects but also other types.

I've used various languages and frameworks: PHP, ASP.NET, C#, SQL Server, Crystal Reports, MySQL, Informix, jQuery, CakePHP, Subversion, Git, and unfortunately even C. I've also played with Sqlite, RoR, Python, GTK (etc) but I have never done a real project with them to call myself an expert.

I am of curious nature and like to learn new things, languages, tools and project management related stuff.

Lately I've been educating myself about all things Agile which are non-existant in the company I work in (far fowls have fair feathers?).

comment Wine sound is played way too fast and crackles horribly
Saved my bacon. I was having this problem for years, this is the only thing that worked. I am curious though, do you remember where you got this solution from? Do we know why does it work?

comment Folding@Home missing dependency for libssl.so.1.0.0 et alii
@EliahKagan: I know it's a bit of a security risk, but I'm firewalled and have the system "fine tuned", so I'm now enjoying a period of stability. :)

comment Folding@Home missing dependency for libssl.so.1.0.0 et alii
@EliahKagan: That's not me, but at least I'm not the only one.. It says there "You can run FAHClient v7.1.50 which was build with libssl0.9.8 and works on most Linux distributions.", but the .deb files for 7.1.50 are missing or I am too much of a dumbass to find them. I can't seem to find any 7.1.x files except for 64bit versions and 7.1.52... (1) As I mentioned in the post, all packages install ok, but the client doesn't start. (2) It's 32bit.

Sorry, I should have mentioned in the question that I have no intention of upgrading. When Unity came in I left the building. I'm staying on 10.10 until Mint+Cinnamon or something similar becomes stable/usable enough. Anyway, is it your opinion that it's not possible to resolve this manually?

comment How do we use mounted DVDs with multiple accounts without ejecting the disk?
Thanks @Azendale, I've run into some of these links myself. My workaround for a while is a small script which kills NM and then starts it again. If any of my users has trouble with the WiFi, they simply use the script and "claim" the NM for themselves.

comment How do I compile ALSA 1.0.24?
It worked! I simply added the Lucid PPA and installed all the updates. I had no idea you can add PPAs for other versions.. Thanks, you saved my bacon! :)

Thanks a lot for the detailed answer! Can you tell me how to try the binary packages for Lucid? Are .deb files installable if they are meant for a different version of Ubuntu?

comment How to properly reset all grub/boot settings?
@nitstorm: Well, it seems like the "undo everything" worked. I got the splash back, it's low-res, huge and ugly but I somehow just love it :) Also, the TTYs are back. Would you mind posting your comment as an answer so I can give you some props? :)

comment How to properly reset all grub/boot settings?
@nitstorm: Hm, I have to say I didn't.. I figured the update from 10.10 to 11.04 caused the problem so I didn't think my modifications are a problem. Now, I think I might try it... :)

Is there any way to automate this in a shell script + setuid upon user switching? (I'd like users with no administrative permissions to have nm-applet as well..)

comment No audio with headphones, but audio works with integrated speakers
@Pedro: I didn't have any sound at all, speakers or headphones. I think my solution will work only with intel sound cards, you should probably remove those lines from your alsa-base.conf.

comment Auto-connect to hidden wireless without elevating privelege
First I'd recommend not to use hidden network settings, because you'll have nothing but trouble from it (I am telling you this from my own personal experience). It is not a security feature, in fact, if you google it a bit, you'll discover that your network can actually be less secure with hidden SSID. It may also be the cause you need to elevate..
