Hello, world!

I'm a father of one pre-schooler and one toddler. My stake in this site is to learn from you, and also to contribute as much as I can!

Based on my own childhood and parenthood, my specialties are (among others): twins, languages, and international aspects. For the record, I'm an identical twin and married to a fraternal twin. I speak 4 languages fluently and I've lived in 5 countries (Europe, Japan).

I enjoy using my experience to help others. That is why I am active at even more SE sites in the StackExchange network on topics that interest me.

valuable flair!

Outside of this site, 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.

To learn more about me, see my Google+ profile.

comment Counting out of context words?
Funny: I have a coworker from another country and he's still learning the language. Same story: limited vocabulary, also mixing general with specific words.

Do you mean stackable, dice-like blocks or Lego Duplo-style building bricks?

This sounds like two distinct questions. Split them into two posts?

I've got that book too, and it really is full of useful hints. Dave, could you pick out one or two relevant ones and quote them here? That would turn your post into a valuable answer.

comment Parental Control for Internet?
I'm marking this as duplicate because this site is about parenting but your question about household-wide Internet monitoring is basically a technical how-to question that's much better answered over at superuser.com.
