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 Protocol for slipstreaming another cyclist?
Re: drafting really close, I'd never go closer than 1m distance, let alone overlapping (unless the one in front is my twin brother; the only person I'd trust that much). Because I'm riding a regular bike, I am not bent over as much and can easily see what's going on ahead, except perhaps a fast squirrel close by.

Thanks Rory - how do you start tailing, or how do others approach you before they tail you? Do they silently follow you, and wait for you to discover them?

Thank you. When you say annoying: does being tailed actually cost you more effort than if you were going alone? Or do you mean you'd have appreciated taking turns?

comment Child seat: how to keep the child's head from falling forward?
This works well in combination with Chad's neck pillow. As you said, moving the torso slighty forward allows more room for the head to lean back behind its equilibrium.

comment Child seat: how to keep the child's head from falling forward?
Yes, this works very well, but only when placed with the opening in the neck. That way, the chin is resting on the top surface of the cushion, so it's comfortable and doesn't restrict breathing.

comment Child seat: how to keep the child's head from falling forward?
Aha, so it really is a "foreheadrest"! Thanks for clearing that up. I've never seen that in the world around me. It doesn't sound all that comfortable; will the child really sleep through any road bumps (I mean bad surface rather than just soft speed bumps)? Is this even safe to use when there are road bumps? I'd be concerned about jolts to the head, since that handlebar is mounted on the bike frame and not on the (slightly suspended) child seat.
