Hi! I've studied cryptography at University of Aarhus in Denmark. I now like in Zurich, Switzerland. I mostly work with Python, but also like functional languages like Haskell a lot. I became involved in the Mercurial project in 2008. I work at Rackspace in Zurich since 2013.

You can follow me on Google Plus if you want to see what I'm up to or take a look at my CV if you want to know what I've worked with.

comment Using DD for disk cloning
Using rsync will ensure that the internal data in the destination filesystem is consistent. It will not ensure that the data in the files is consistent — to do that, you would need to lock the files and any programs that write to the files would need to respect these locks.

comment Mercurial - anyway to make hg serve permanent?
If you look in hg help serve you'll see that you should use a real web server to serve a repository for longer periods of time.
