I like to code and I do it a lot. I want to build software to save the planet. Passionate polyglot programmer, generalist with specialties. Code reviewer, unit tester, driver of change. I get things done.

I make free Android apps such as Programming Quiz, websites such as bashoneliners.com, and other open source stuff. I wrote a book on Bazaar Version Control, and an article on shell tips & tricks for Linux Journal.

I blog, tweet (@janosgyerik), and post "pro tips" on CoderWall.

Thanks @JamesTobin! I'm happy to add links that improve the answer, but I don't see the added value in the link you posted. Can you explain?

comment Automatically mount NTFS drive when I login
Btw, at least in Xubuntu, it's a bit different: udisksctl mount -b /dev/disk/by-uuid/THE_UUID. udisksctl is in the udisks2 package and I don't have a udisks package.
