Hi, and thanks for dropping by!
I'm your fellow microbadge helper and janitor, so if you need any help with microbadging or found a microbadge related problem somewhere of any kind, please feel free to contact me and I'll be happy to sort it out.
For complete microbadging info, check out the Microbadge Design and Submission
wiki page. I've also started a small blog on the subject called Microbadging Along
So, a little bit about myself, right? I'm a Portuguese computer programmer (or software engineer, if you prefer, I certainly don't!
), that is very happily living in beautiful and laid back Lagos, Portugal. I've lived in several places, many in Portugal such as Coimbra and Lisbon, but also in Melbourne, Pittsburgh and very very briefly in Madrid and Milan. As you can probably guess, traveling is one of my favorite things, and I try to see and experience as much of the world as I can.
I was ecstatic in becoming the 255th Geek of the Week
My gaming group is composed of exactly two people (myself and my wife), but I don't get to play nearly as often as I'd like to (probably more or less the same as most of you, right?

Apart from my behind-the-scenes microbadging, which is really what I'm most proud of around here, my favorite contributions to BGG are
The BGG Randomizer
is an application that periodically rotates/randomizes a BGG user's microbadges and/or (über)geekbadge. More information can be found at BGG Randomizer: periodically randomize your desktop's wallpaper, microbadges, (über)geekbadge & overtext [v0.06 includes twitter and overtext support]
The Microbadge Library
is a simple Windows application for searching through BGG's microbadge database. As it uses a static and local database, searching and viewing the microbadges is made simpler than through the website. More information can be found at Microbadge Library: Windows application for searching and viewing BGG's microbadges
