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 connect to a WLAN printer?
At the top, it shows the USB interface. This screenshot was just for the purpose of illustration; I want to do the same on the laptop where the printer is not yet known at all. Indeed, looking though the printer's own menu I found its IP address and entered that as HOST in Ubuntu. That seemed to have worked. If you post your comment as an answer, I can accept it.

comment How to print using wireless to a Canon MG6150?
Find gives me the result No printer was found at that address. Apparently I must enter a host but what could that be? Screenshot and my related question.

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.
