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.

@karthick87 because my home computer is not Fort Knox. If strangers are messing with my desktop then I have bigger concerns than my computer.

comment How to go automatically from Suspend into Hibernate?
Just wondering: would this still be valid for Ubuntu 13.04? I need exactly this solution but I don't want to mess with wife's laptop if it turns out to break things on newer versions.

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.
