I enjoy making software and applying technology to help myself and friends and family achieve things as well as earning a living doing it.

My creative aspirations cross over into other disciplines including radio where I make programmes myself and with others for several local and community stations, in professional capacity as well as voluntary.

comment How to restore Windows Live Mail Contacts?
+1 Thanks @Matthew - Nirsoft's LiveContactView worked for me. I prefer your solution because: 1) Doesn't need to be on the original PC -in LiveContactView you can run it on a backup on the contacts folder that is residing on another drive, doesn't have to be an active installation of Windows Live Mail. 2) This app is from what appears to be an established organisation, so even though I'm sure an independent developer has best intentions, an organisation can suggest a higher level of confidence with the tool 3) It's free.

comment Debug Drupal in IDE: set breakpoints and step-by-step (i.e. step thru code) debugging - which tools do this successfully?
I'm also now using PHPStorm and very happy with it for debugging too. I would still have good things to say about Komodo IDE and NetBeans (free) though. Thanks!
