Platinum Editor Star.

I am a Finnish man in my early forties. I have a Bachelor's Degree from the University of Helsinki, only because I was too lazy to ever begin my Master's Thesis. I also have a full-time job as a computer programmer.

As well as Finnish culture, I like Star Trek and Transformers, which should be obvious from the contributions I've made.

There might be more to come later.

Hotel room numbers[edit]

Numbers of hotel rooms I've been in:

People I've nominated for adminship[edit]

I do seem to (mostly) have a way of picking my candidates, don't I? =)

Random observations[edit]

ISO 5775[edit]

Now this is something new - I almost put a copyvio tag on an article that was created by its original copyright holder. Pretty embarrassing, isn't it?

My old schoolmate[edit]

I just found an article about one of my former schoolmates. All this time I had no idea he had become so famous.

Heard in a public sauna from a woman[edit]

"When talking to a man, it's good to say the word "naked" every once in a while."

Richard Clifton-Dey[edit]

For over a year and eight months, it seemed that a Wikipedia article claimed a man was both alive and dead.[1] [2]
