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 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!

Wait, are you saying that "/var/run/user/1001/gvfs/smb-share\:server\=hera5\,share\=olympia/" is a valid path in the file system?

comment Is there any way to get AutoHotKey or IronAHK working?
IronAHK seems totally dead by now. No updates for several years. Pity :-/

comment Ubuntu fonts are wrong after installing Wine and MS “corefonts”
Thanks @Jos I have now installed ubuntu-tweak and the fonts seem to be fine, including subpixel rendering etc. So it's not that. This answer seems to have a promising answer, but I'm not sure what it will do to my Wine installation so I'm hesitating to just try it out.
