I am João Miguel Pais, and some of you might know me from my (mostly)  
questions in the list.

I guess it's part of protocol to tell something about me, so here it is:

- I studied composition in Lisbon, London and Freiburg (Germany), where I  
still live
- I worked with Csound, Max-MSP, and later Pd
- I am not a C programmer, so my work is in the form of abstractions.  
Since I am using Pd everytime ofter, I try to implement higher-level  
objects, so that repeated operations will be easier to do (openfile  
dialogs, editing GUIs, level metering, etc. etc.). I would like to learn C  
and go deeper, but I didn't had time/courage until now (but there's still  
- I work on windows, but am now going slowly to ubuntu (as you might have  
learned by some angry frustrated mails some weeks ago).
- My work plattform is an IBM Thinkpad R51 (1.6 Ghz, 1G RAM), RME Hdspa  
card + Multiface, Behringer BCF2000, and some other smaller stuff. In  
windows I worked with the "official" version and maintained it myself, but  
since I am going to use Pd simultaneously on both win and lin, I'm  
changing to pd-ext (as it is already post-0.39)
- My main interests / uses of Pd nowadays are for my own personal work:  
with composition (eithter Tape or live-electronics), and improvisation (as  
part of the Laptop trio Endphase - www.endphase.net)
[- To earn money I work nowadys as a notesetter (Sibelius); I am planning  
on moving to Berlin after the Summer.]

- my Pd page is in http://www.puredata.org/Members/jmmmp

if any other information is required, let me know.
