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.

Now having toyed with xplanet I can't decide whether to use it or not. It does produce a very nice image but the nighttime area seems wrong - too bright and missing city lights. For that, the Opentopia images win. Hmm...

Your answer doesn't explain the cause of my current problem but provides a fine alternative solution that I want to implement. Thank you!

There's a program that generates these and can be run on the local computer? How cool is that! I'll never not be surprised by the versatility of Linux :D

For the sake of completeness (and because I messed up) -- how do I restore the default value after using this?

Just that command, or the entire script? Would you mind trying the script?
