Full Biography

Apparently I joined EE in 2004. I'm still trying to figure out what my quest was at that time.

I re-discovered EE in January 2010 and found my account still active. With some help from the friendly mods I even got a working password again.

I've always worked with the so-called "end user".  I think (hope!) I understand their fears and frustrations. When I offer a solution, it may not be the slickest and most elegant one, but it will probably be something that the end user will be able to maintain and adjust without coming back here for more help.  

Although I've worked with spreadsheets long before Excel even existed (Multiplan, anyone?), my professional career took some loops that did not involve MS Office for quite a while. I've been involved with Lotus Notes, HTML/CSS, CMS, IT project management and Organisational Change Managment.
 
Although I've worked in big, multi-national corporations as well as in little mom-and-pop businesses, I find that the questions of the end user are of the same nature in either business type.

Experts often say in jest: "It's not about the points." Yeah, right.  But apart from the points, there is a nice, warm, fluffy feeling when the asker closes a question and tells you that you've done a good job and/or made their lives easier. The comments that sometimes accompany a grade are often worth more than the points.

EE askers and their comments on accepted solutions have so far made many of my days!

It feels good to be here.
