My name is Benjamin Dumke-von der Ehe. I am Stack Overflow Valued Associate #00007, which is just a confusing way of saying that I work as a developer for Stack Exchange.

I am @balpha on Twitter. My blog's "about" page explains the origin of my user name.

I am the creator of Unicornify, the service that gives you these lovable creatures:

I also created Lyfe, a small library adding yield-based generators to JavaScript, and Not a Real Question, a little game that's played with data from various Stack Exchange sites.

I sometimes have a strange sense of humor, but I also like to explain things I fix, break, care about, or come up with.

comment Disabling the 5 GhZ wifi band on the HTC One X
@Wartickler non-branded = I didn't get it from a carrier, I just bought it at the store (I don't know about the US, but here in Germany you don't have to get your phone from your carrier). non-rooted = I didn't root it.

@eldarerathis Yes, screenshot works on One X (didn't that finally make it into a standard Android feature?). Anyway, I did check there; this is all I see behind the advanced wifi settings: i.stack.imgur.com/NCQbE.png
