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 Creaking sounds from the saddle tube?
It's definitely metal! There's no space-age technology on this horse :) Yeah, black-anodized aluminum would fit the bill.

I can't tell, @DanielRHicks. (It is written on the frame, that's the only way I knew that.)

comment Creaking sounds from the saddle tube?
Of course you're right :) I just removed the saddle post and found the mark 1cm below the point that meets the tube, so technically it's not too high but I might still be putting too much weight on it. I also greased it while it was out; let's see if that helps! Put it as an answer?

Thanks, I checked for such a mark but didn't find any.

comment Is it legal to pass a car on the right when that car is turning?
Sorry but I don't have time to dig up the actual paragraphs. I see your point of view, but I just happen to disagree. No harm in that.

@unforgettableid - if I understand your right, you mean bicycling in the middle of your lane. Motorcycles should adhere to vehicular cycling because they can indeed move with the flow but bicycles should not. For bicycles, that is actually not legal in the countries where I learned to bicycle (Germany, Denmark) because bicycles are small and slow vehicles; vehicular cycling would be dangerous because it obstructs the traffic. I would definitely not dare to do so except on small, narrow, slow roads.

I don't think you meant thirty trips of two-minute duration, right?

comment How do I deal with a dog chasing me when I'm touring?
@Luke: What, and pepper spray isn't? I'm surprised so many of the answers mention pepper spray as if it's something people carry around like a cell phone.
