About me

General info

Real Name: Paul Eggleton
Point of Origin: Harrow, near London, UK
Current Location: Auckland, New Zealand

I enjoy writing Open Source software, watching movies, reading, listening to music, and I also like to go tramping. I have a full-time job at CJN Technologies, designing and developing software in Delphi.

I like all kinds of music, but my favourite music ranges from Jean-Michel Jarre to R.E.M., to Genesis / Phil Collins. Most of the time, though, I like to listen to MP3s, MODs, and MIDIs, especially music from PC games.

One of my other hobbies is electronics. I've also designed, built and installed security systems.

Weird fact

In my last year at school I received a mock award for "Most likely to be remembered for hacking into FBI files just to see if he could, and then having an X-Files episode based on the occurrence with special guest star William Shatner."
