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 Can I upgrade from Ubuntu 12.10 to Lubuntu 13.04 directly?
Can you please clarify: Lubuntu aims at low-spec machines. If I have "Ubuntu 13.04 with Lubuntu desktop" as you say, will it be of equal performance as a true Lubuntu?

comment Black screen during boot after TTY1 login
Yes, I can start the machine in text and single modes. apt-get remove fglrx didn't change anything, unfortunately. Same problem, but I'm still trying to even identify what the problem is, before I can start fixing anything.

Downvoted because green7's answer is correct and official...

comment Black screen during boot after TTY1 login
Same as ever: the system freezes, presumably when it tries to load the GDM, and I don't know how to identify the cause.

With Seth's help I found out that all filesystems are ext4 and that they are okay.

Thanks @Braiam, I think all volumes are ext2 except my Data volume which I know to be ext4.

comment Recommended fstab options for /home partition
Can you please clarify why you recommend defaults when Ubuntu's help page here recommends nodev,nosuid? I am honestly curious what the differences mean.
