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 Is there a difference between “Schuld haben” and “schuld sein”?
Makes me think of the management phrase, We didn't say it was your fault. We said we're going to blame you.

comment Are “Schmankerln” always Bavarian?
Not sure about Bavarian, but in Austrian we also use the word to denote "goodies" when used to make a deal more attractive - so it's not exclusively about food even though food is the origin.

comment Was ist der Unterschied zwischen “Worte” und “Wörter”?
Die "Formel" am Ende ist genial weil einfach zu merken. Danke!

comment Wie schreibt man Umlaute und scharfes S auf nichtdeutschen Tastaturen?
Minor nitpick: It's actually not Shift+Alt but rather Alt+Shift: first press and hold Alt, then press Shift once, then release Alt. The other way round doesn't work.
