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! :)

Samsung multi function laser printer SL-M3375FD could suddenly not send email (scan to email) and SMB shares stopped working. Logging in to the printer web interface, using the test function for the SMTP settings just resulted in “failed” when it tried to authenticate to the email server. Recently the email server’s SSL-certificate was updated because […]
After a system update I started to receive cron messages saying “/etc/cron.daily/amavisd-new:Please run this cronjob as user amavis”. It turns out that this happens because the cron script is replaced by a new one located in /etc/cron.d and the one in /etc/cron.daily is left behind giving this error message. Solution: After checking that the new […]
