Hello! My name is Michael Borgwardt, I was born 1977 and have been living and working in and around Munich, Germany for a long time, although strictly speaking I'm a "Zuag'roaster", i.e. not a true native.
Munich is rather expensive to live in, but I feel very comfortable here, since it offers all the advantages of a big city without being an endless concrete waste.
You can find out more about my work and my hobbies in the other sections of this website -
hopefully it's not too boring :-)
My online nickname is based on the 1984 movie Brazil, a dark surrealist story by Monty Python member Terry Gilliam, which is one of my favourite movies. Its title in turn is based on a 1930s song.
Originally I therefore called myself "Brazil", ever since that nickname was positively remarked upon during my very first contact with the Internet (which took place via a Gateway between IRC and the German Telecom's proprietary BTX service), which must have been around 1993.
However, it frequently led to misunderstandings as people assumed I was Brazilian, and of course "Brazil"
was often already taken as a nickname. Therefore I eventually swichted to far more distinct "brazzy".

Do you happen to remember the small rental car company
that you posted where you were able to rent a car
in Chile and return to Argentina? I am having
difficulty finding a way to do that. Thanks
It's really cool that you used to use Brazil as your nickname. I am brazilian and am proud of that.
Time to time I stumble on posts of yours. Keep up the good work!
I've just downloaded your 'big decimal program' and feel I am going to have crash course in German to understand it:-) would it be possible to obtain and English language version - or maybe I'm missing something;-)
I remember Brazil from my time in University (circa 1990's). It WAS dark!
Happy to meet somebody who seems upbeat on the web!
