Tomáš Pečený

(In ASCII texts, I use the name 'Tomas Peceny'.)

I am a technical physicist. Since 1971 I work mostly with computers, first for measurements and process control in a technology research for electronics, then as a head of the IT department and then as an analyst and technologist in a TV company. As a pensioner, I had externally made measurements control and user interface for scientific computation in an academic basic research. Since beginning of PCs I have used them with the Microsoft DOS and Windows software, later also its pocket versions with PDAs. In 2013 I started using Ubuntu Linux. Since 2015 I have used almost only Ubuntu, but still I can compute technical tasks far quicker using Microsoft Visual Basic and C 6.0 SP6. I have replaced my old PCs by Dell Optiplex 7010 with the systems at a 128 GB SSD. I have installed Ubuntu 16.04 and I consider replacing Windows 7 by Windows 10; up to now I use Windows for my wife's TV programs.

I try using the NetBeans IDE. (I dream about its using with my HTC M8 mobile, too.)

I love the Linux structure, gedit, the Ubuntu 16.04 Keyboard Shortcuts and mouse controlling windows with my main displaying on two monitors 5:4, Total Commander (via Wine); I frequently use Nautilus, Krusader and LibreOffice. I do not like the Thunderbird mail editor; If it could be fully compatible with LibreOffice, using the way as Word was (and probably still is) just the mail editor in Office! I prefer UTF-8 coding, I do not like changing time from winter to summer ("Day light savings", a typical example of how regulation only worry and harm). I love the Google Calendar and Contacts. I love also the Chromium Web Browser and Google Maps with navigation using their own method to evaluate traffic and Google Translator. I want we all less and less to use the notion of globalization in a negative context.
