Any technology distinguishable from magic is insufficiently advanced.

Any sufficiently analyzed magic is indistinguishable from science.

Oh yes, me too...  
 
I Think Too Much...

Ya, That's me. Always thinking ... ahead, or behind. For twenty years, if I get more than 4 or 5 hours sleep, my brain wakes me up.

Instantly, and every time. My brain is a driven mofo, and right out of Central Casting. My brain, or to be more precise, my subconscious, fights me. Endlessly.

Anyone else experience this?

I just noticed that my last post was actually my post #100! That calls for a little happy dance. I've been picking up the pen more frequently this year and I intend to go on providing more useful posts. See you around!

Photos are among the most important data we have because they are potentially irreplaceable. Other files can be just as valuable. How do we keep them safe?

Parenthood...
When we become parents, we give up a lot of personal habits. In their place, the baby is the new hobby. It's important for both parents to take (and give!) time, even just a little, to spend on other interests. Priorities change, sure, but old desires don't simply go away. Ignoring them leads to frustration, so be sure to look after yourself too and not just the baby.
 
So true!  I did manage to get a little side hacking done while I was on paternity leave in the first few weeks after Gabe was born, but that's mostly long gone.  But I certainly wouldn't trade it for the world!

A word of encouragement during a failure is worth more than an hour of praise after success. - Unknown

When you replace the batteries in home electronics, write the date on the battery. Next time you replace that battery, this date helps you determine whether the batteries lasted as long as you expected.

Technology geek, handyman, parent, and all-round nice guy :-)
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 :) :)
