Hello, I am Nicholas Dionysopoulos, a 30-something former Mechanical Engineer from Greece. To the contrary of the prevailing sterotype I enjoy working really hard. This vice of mine –some people would call this "workaholism"– permits me to be the lead developer of the acclaimed Akeeba Backup, Admin Tools, Akeeba Release System, Akeeba Subscriptions, Akeeba DocImport, Akeeba Ticket System, Akeeba Kickstart, Akeeba UNiTE, Akeeba Remote CLI and Akeeba eXtract Wizard. And the primary support guy for all of them, the author of their extensive documentation, a frequent flyer (enagelising Joomla!, of course!) and occasional contributor to the Joomla! CMS.
In my spare time –I am exaggerating a bit here, I don't have "spare" time, I just have "brain melted; system overload" time– I enjoy playing the guitar, reading books (especially spy and action novels), meeting with friends and going to the movies. I have an excellent talent for knowing which are the absolute worst movies out in theatres at any given time... and get to watch them to reconfirm that my instinct was spot on. As a consequence I get to see the really good movies only on DVDs pay-per-view cable and iTunes rentals.
Despite widespread rumours to the contrary I am not a cyborg and I do not, repeat: do not, own a TARDIS. The blue-ish assembly outside my house is my tool shed. And no, that's a not a sonic screwdriver, dammit, that's my stylus. My day has 24 hours, just like yours, and I do get to sleep about 8-ish (OK, 7-ish) hours a day. If you email me and I don't reply within minutes I am either asleep or working. If I don't reply at all I either missed your email or you're asking me for unsolicited support. Especially the latter, really, don't do it. It's the fastest shortcut to your email address being added to my blacklist.
I always speak my mind, raw and unfiltered. Tourette syndrome-like fits aside I am rather tame and do not bite. If unsure approach with mild caution, preferrably bearing a token gift in the form of coffee or other caffeinated beverage (beer will also do, it's the official Joomla! events drink of sorts).
Above all I like making fun of myself and life in general. Life's too short to take it (or ourselves) too seriously. Just go out there and do some epic shit!
