About Stefan Helander
I was born a nerd! As a child I was fond of fiddling with all kind of thechnical stuff, discovering how things work and often fixing them. As a 6 year old I fixed my grandmothers 220 volts wiring.
The interest in technical stuff grown even bigger in the teenage years where I got my amateur radio license and developed a keen interest in computers.
Today I am proud to be a nerd. It is a part of my profession.
To all of you nerds and geeks out there - remember that nerd is the new sexy! :)

USB memory sticks or external disks that has been formatted on a Mac might not be readable if you connect it to a Windows computer. The reason is that the Mac has formatted it using a file system unknown by Windows. To read the disk you can use the free tool hfsexplorer.
If you have your contacts exported into .vcf files, they can easily be imported into for example iCloud, Google or your email program. However, if you have a couple of hundreds or thousands of contacts, and equally amount of .vcf files it will be very inefficient to import each contact one by one. A solution […]

When running the Magento readiness test it failed with the message that always_populate_raw_post_data should be set to -1 since it is running under php 5.6. Even though I tried different methods of setting it to -1 and I could verify it by calling phpinfo(); Magento still complained. The way I solved is a bit rough and […]
