Robbed! Last night some thugs broke into my offices and took off with several computers, my DSL equipment, UPS and a bunch of other communication equipment....... arrgggh! These are some of the realities of living in the land of Zinj.

Unfortunately I hadn't set up insurance on the premises yet - only been there 2 1/2 weeks and with too much travel during that period. Anyway now I can safely say that insurance and security are among my top priorities. Just below off-site backup .... yes, I didn't have an off-site backup of the data on these machines, grrrrrr! Anyway thank goodness when I called my financial consultant to report the incident he reassured me by telling he had backed up my Quickbooks till February, so I only need to recover one month's data - phew!

And they call this living in the fast lane? Ha!

Money, money, money - that's what seems to be on everybody's mind's these days. Needless to say that nowadays it's almost impossible to survive without the damned stuff in the first place.

They say that money makes the world go round. What I want to do is make money go round the world....

After months of resisting the urge to get a personal blog on one of the free blog sites I have finally caved in today and set one up. I must say the Blogger setup is pretty straightforward and easy - which made the process less of a hastle....anyway let's see how this goes!
