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.

@DuminduMahawela thank you. When should I run that - before or after I install any of the above drivers? Which of my bullets would you recommend? I can't tell the difference.

envirofriendly addition. No seriously, it's actually very important that the screen turns off after some minutes!

comment How to rip DVD's in high quality
I found OGMRip to be extremely user friendly. It's not the fastest, but the results are just as good - and ease of use is important to me, so it's a winner.

Encrypted? Aha, so that's the cause! That wasn't obvious to me. In this case, close-as-dupe seems right.

Looks like a regular dvd in Win VLC.
