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.

comment Good floor planner program?
This program looks promising. It's available in the software center without downloading anything first. But I notice that it's very slow: drag an item with the mouse, then wait 1 second for the program to move the item. What's up? I took the liberty to replace the screenshot.

I tried to open the note in gedit; it said Unexpected error: Error opening file: Input/output error ...

comment Tomboy won't start
Yep, that worked! I moved all notes to the desktop and then Tomboy could start. I quit it and moved one note back, then started Tomboy again. Quit, repeat. Only one note is broken - and that's the only one I have!! The other 3 are the built-in samples. Is there no way to recover that note?? It's my Ubuntu installation diary.... ironic, isn't it!

Well you're right that it isn't open-source-free but it has a price of zero, and that's still good.
