High Speed Internet Located…Here Come the Posts

April 24th, 2009 2 Comments

Well, I finally have found a reasonably fast connection.  It’s a very nice, clean and non-smoking (a important issue in Indonesia <grin>) business centre with about a hundred seats of widescreen, high-speed internet workstations running Windows – each kitted out with a webcam.  I’m really looking forward to videochatting with the kids in the next [...]


A Nice Quiet Election Day

April 8th, 2009 4 Comments

I have been in Bandung for the last few days. Currently I am staying at my Uncle’s beautiful house which is just above the city, about 200 meters higher on the mountain, where it is nice and cool . Today is national elections in Indonesia; I know there is always some concern about unrest during Indonesian [...]


Donations Now Open

April 2nd, 2009 Comments Off

I have added the Donate section to the website where you can choose to donate some money towards my work at the Agape Social Foundation in Indonesia.  In 2007 I was amazed and humbled by the generosity of my friend and family in the more than $700 we raised which went directly to to Fair [...]


Caught up on drafts

March 28th, 2009 Comments Off

I finally caught up on all my draft posts here.  Whew!  I’ve been starting articles and not finishing them for awhile…mostly so I wouldn’t forget to make the post. But, I’m all caught up now, which means there’s a slew of new posts…and my draft queue is empty.  Yay!  If only I could get my [...]


And we’re back!

November 28th, 2007 Comments Off

Wow! That was a much longer break in posts that I had hoped for…coming back this Fall was very busy on Campus (not much of a surprise there!). In any case, while my trip to Nepal is over, the work I started is by no means over and continually amazes me. Last week I had [...]


Coming Soon…More Posts!

August 17th, 2007 Comments Off

But not quite yet <smile>. I’m fully recovered from my post-Nepal illness and I’m feeling great – which is especially good since I leave for 1 week of camping with my family today.  We’re heading up to Northern Ontario where I’ll be until the 27th, and where there’s effectively no Internet. However, I have lots [...]


Updates Soon!

July 26th, 2007 Comments Off

The last two nights there have been rolling blackouts in Kathmandu – which means I’ve been having more than a little trouble getting updates posted <grin>. I have still been writing posts – but I need to get them onto the computer and posted…hopefully I’ll have some time later today to take care of that. [...]


Bloody Vikings…

July 24th, 2007 Comments Off

Ugh! Spammers found this site today.  I had to kill my first spam comments today.  I stayed off the radar for almost a month…I guess that’s something. But what’s really important is how awesome the Askimet spam filter is <grin>. Now if only I can find Lobster Thermidor a Crevette with a mornay sauce served [...]


I’ve been Googled!

July 22nd, 2007 1 Comment

Thanks to the stats report at WordPress.Com, I get a pretty decent picture of how busy or quiet the site is.  So far, I’m really surprised and pleased with how bust it has been.  It looks like I have a number of regular readers and often have more than 100 visitors in a day.  These [...]
