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.

Recursion is not important, but it's a good observation. I love the way you built this as a demo-then-true model.

comment how to map an Ubuntu share on another Ubuntu machine?
Yes I set up the shares by right-clicking on the folders I wanted to share. I made sure to select the two checkboxes about write access and "allow guests". So I think I did all I can to share it "wide-open" but I still can't write to it from another machine. Do I need to set up some kind of domain server, group management, or network administration central? I just have 2 regular pc's on a home LAN, no server or anything.

@ldjames - this is about my home computers, not at work, so there is no administrator. Why Samba, I thought that was only used for Windows? I'm exasperated that Linux file sharing on a home LAN is so difficult.

thanks, this gave me a valid path, but read-only. How do I make it writable?

comment how to map an Ubuntu share on another Ubuntu machine?
there is no folder with my userid, nor literally "userid", in my /var/run/... there are samba/ and user/ dirs but they seem unrelated. I am confused!
