I regularly visit Stack Exchange to help out people with their questions and help maintain the community. Located in Belgium, I am studying Computer Science at the University of Antwerp.

When I think a post can be improved I will try to do so by fixing grammatical or spelling errors, clarifying meaning without changing it, correcting minor mistakes, adding related resources or links. For the less obvious things of those I will leave a note in the edit, click on the date to see this.

I will only edit content in posts once, and let the author or other users be free to choose to rollback; when there are opposing views, we can raise this to meta to let the majority decide which revision of the post they want.

This will be done with respect of the original author and when I'm sure enough that it would only improve the post, if you need to contact me then you can e-mail me at the following address:

Or if you have enough reputation, try to send me a message with @TomWij on the Super User Chat where I am usually when I am online.

Have a nice day! :)

@Manachi: Technically incorrect, modifier keys modify the modification key state in the memory of your computer. ;-) While we're at it, our comments are already longer than just correcting the answer itself. :-)

comment How can I open a JSON file in JavaScript without jQuery?
@MarkDuiker: Ehm no, if I were to give you another website that refers to the ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.7.1/jquery.min.js script it would only take ~3ms to read it from your cache as you are currently reading a website that refers to the very same script and you have likely visited quite a few other websites referring to it as well in the past days. That's part of the purpose of a CDN... ;-)
