Linux is awesome in the sense that any and all kinds to software you'd ever need, is available for free. It's easy to see why people are so fond of it. Until you need to install new hardware, like a graphics card or, in this case, a TV tuner card. Then…

As it turns out,when you've already been trying to wire your brain to a new layout (Dvorak), it's really difficult to switch to a new-new layout (Colemak). But I found a solution, of course.

OK, here’s a Christmas Challenge: name all 10 of Santa’s Reindeer!

I just came across this, and found it funny enough that I want to share with you - even though the season hasn't really started yet. But you can add it to your list of dad jokes to use this holiday.

Answer:

Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner and Blitzen (that’s 8)
... plus Rudolph (makes 9)

and...

Olive the Reindeer!

Don’t remember Olive? Of course you do, sing the song: ”…Olive, the other reindeer, used to laugh and call him names, they never let poor Rudolph join in any Reindeer games.”

The Future! October 21st, 2015!
I know what VHS cassette I will be putting into the player. 
What are YOUR plans?

(Also, for fun, here's a photo of the Marty look-alike in my family!)

Ticking items off of lists
... seems to happen a lot this month: gifts, special groceries, greeting cards, and so much more. We're not done yet but I'm happy that I've now completed one traditional task: I love to build the greeting card myself!

I came across a handful of short clips where famous actors take the role of nature and give it a voice. Their message is unforgiving, if not downright brutal. They're absolutely worth watching!

I seem to be fond of brilliant technology that is no longer available. A FingerWorks keyboard is probably another advanced gadget you aren't familiar with. I've sold mine now - this adventure was good as long as it lasted.

Thank you Ken. Most of all I'm sad that nothing like this has been released in the past full decade - that's such a long time in the tech world, and yet this is just at a standstill.

I'm glad these good folks can appreciate the devices. One is now in the UK (and I received it used from the USA), the other in Spain (and it's the Danish layout). They travel the world more than I do!

What does it mean when you're in IKEA and hear a "Code 1000" being announced? I found out today.

500..in the State's we have "Code Adam" for a missing kid. The employees are supposed to stand at the door and actually prevent kids leaving with any adult unless they can either prove custody or the security personnel confirm that's not the kid in question.

Introduction
Google+ suggests that I fill this text box with a short description of me, so that you can tell you've found the right "Torben". Let's put it this way:

If you've seen the rest of this page, and you're still not sure whether you know me, then you don't :-)

For everybody else, a few highlights:

I'm an identical twin. Man that's fun!

I'm from Denmark, but I've also lived many years in Sweden, Germany, Japan, and currently Austria. I speak 4 languages fluently, plus one or two more rather badly.

I'm a father of two wonderful young boys, and I'm very active on a great parenting Q&A website.

My education is a hybrid of IT, economics, and organizational change. That makes me a bit of a Swiss army knife, and I've worked in software, shipping, insurance, banking... Every kind of business that uses software. Right now I'm doing anti-money-laundering, which is more exciting than you'd expect, and probably safer than the kind without "anti".

I'm very good with tools, whether IT or mechanic. Nobody can assemble IKEA furniture faster (and better!) than I can. Yes, you may challenge me. Or hire me; I'll bring my own tools. I've always been the local software and hardware guru in the office, and I leave a wake of wiki intranets wherever I work.

On computers:
I've used Macintosh in the good old days before it was Unix-based. I don't like OS X because it requires so much mousing. I did like my (jailbroken!) iPhone because the hardware is fantastic; I absolutely hate iTunes. Switching to Android made me much happier.
I've used DOS and Windows since forever, and I really miss Windows XP. I'm trying to get used to Ubuntu on my home computer and I'm doing great. Ubuntu's "App Store" is awesome, and so is the Ask Ubuntu help community.

I'm generally soft-spoken but driven by clear principles.
I'm not religious; I believe in science. 

I'm a facilitator - what I do best is help others be great.
Bragging rights
I'm a quadrilingual identical twin, married to a trilingual fraternal twin :) :)
