This website is just a little hobby really. Although there are some adverts on it to cover the running costs, the intention of this site is not to make a profit. To earn a living, I develop software (mainly nBill - a billing component for the Joomla Content Management System), and provide Joomla hosting services.
I am married, and our daughter was born in February '07.
I learned Portuguese after buying a second-hand linguaphone course, which was the main tool I used for learning the language.
I wrote the contents of this site as a document while I was on holiday in the Algarve. It wasn't intended to be a website to start with - it was more for my own benefit really, to document what I had learned and highlight any gaps in my understanding. One or two friends also wanted a copy, but while on holiday again a couple of years later I decided to build it into a website so that I could keep it up-to-date more easily. Since then it has grown a bit, and I've been able to add more features (like sound files and photos).
My other interests include classical guitar, chess, astronomy, aquatics, films, weight-lifting, wine and beer making, and various other things that I don't get time for these days!
