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?
one thing that bothers me: all "amount" columns are formatted as "US$ 12345.67" and date fields as "MM/DD/YY" even though my system has other regional settings. Is Skrooge ignoring my regional settings because it's a KDE program running in Ubuntu/Unity?

I've finally begun using Skrooge seriously, and it is wonderful. Especially being able to make one change on several transactions at once (like setting category) is very useful. Reporting is confusing, and budgeting baffled me - but I'll spend more time with those features later on.

@StephenM.Webb no it's all plain ASCII...

After moving the files elsewhere, they can be viewed. It's not the files themselves...

I removed the thumbnails using cd ~/.cache/thumbnails and then rm -rf * and then pointed Nautilus to the path, but it still crashed. I'll try to move the files somewhere else using terminal and then pointing Nautilus there. That should prove whether the files are the problem.

I added some details. No big files, and just a few files in total. Nothing special...
