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 Microsoft Money alternative?
I sincerely appreciate the many answers I have received. I am going to choose my own answer as "accepted" though because using Money in Wine is what I honestly felt to be the best solution. I acknowledge that there are many useful native tools, but they don't quite cut it in terms of data import, features, and usability. But this is certainly something to review in a year or three!

comment What are zombie processes?
The top `screenshot in this question seems to contradict you? There, the zombie appears to use 100% of 1 CPU, but no memory.

Thanks. I stopped using Tomboy after that early crash. I'm now only using (n-)Evernote.

comment Error when plugging iPod Touch into MacBook
+1, that worked! On an iPhone 4, version 4.2.1. Took a long time to process those three commands though (around 10 minutes).

@Alaurik, that article refers to Money version 2005 and later. I'm using 2004 and the file imports perfectly. All I need to do is hit Accept for each transaction and everything is as it should be.

Yes! This is a good alternative. It costs 50$ but then my MS Money also cost money so that's no negative argument. And it DOES import OFC files and does so CORRECTLY!!

But my bank doesn't offer QIF. It only offers OFC. Hence my request for OFC-compatible alternatives...

I didn't rename the question, someone else did. And I'm going to roll-back that change because I disagree with it: My focus is not exclusively on the OFC format but on the replacement for MS Money.
