Personal Info

Languages spoken: 

I do respond to support requests only if posted in the appropriate Issue Queue on Drupal or Backdrop.

Besides my D7 and 8 full projects, all of my sandbox projects (D7 only) are fully functional and tested. Feel free to use them. Once some interest is shown (starred 5 times) I convert them to full projects.
