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 Is it bad to have /home/ on an NTFS partition?
I've tried ditching Windows for years now but I always come back to it for one reason or another. Old habits die hard, blah blah. But every year takes me closer to ditching it completely; I just bought a new pc and I've taken the plunge and only run Ubuntu on it. So far, so good! :D Btw, resizing a 1TB NTFS partition down to 400GB so I can shuffle the data onto a new ext4 partition takes for... ever!

comment Is it bad to have /home/ on an NTFS partition?
RE: why oh why? - NTFS was not a deliberate choice. I wanted to have /home/ on a separate disk but I only realized afterwards that that disk was NTFS format... Thank you for your excellent pointers!

comment Move home folder to second drive
Unity in 13.04 has no "Users & Groups", just a "Users" setting that does not include these options. Can you mention the corresponding terms for Unity in 13.04?

comment Completely messed up booting. Can't even boot from DVD
Does your BIOS have a "reset" option that you could try? That would not mess with the boot manager but it might restore some hardware settings so your DVD drive appears again.
