I'm a hobbyist programmer, part-time sysadmin, and full-time data center management, automation, and cloud computing architect and delivery engineer.

I have experience with myriad editors, shells, and OSes. While I have my [strong] preferences, am pretty much beyond the religious wars of "what's best" when it comes to platform, editor, or toolset: if it works for the problem at hand, and you know it, it's [probably] worthwhile :)

comment How can I paint over mold to prevent it from coming back again?
bleach (on its own) won't kill it - household bleach like you can buy from the grocery store is too watered-down

comment How to prepare & paint a porch with lead paint?
@monksy - so far as I know, in general you need to enlist an environmental services group to do this "properly", just like with removing asbestos shingles; the jurisdiction my parents live in, for example, requries such professional treatment

@ChrisCudmore - the fan at the top of my parents' stairway is set to pull air up (and help push it out), not try to push it down
