Back for 2009

Friday, January 9, 2009

Back from the Christmas holidays and back to work routine, after a week of running-in. Not quite still under holiday blues, but the work engines are still very cold.

This year will be a year of some major changes. The anticipated projects in the pipeline are writing the masters thesis and moving to Luxembourg.

As now has become the custom, I ignored the blog completely during the holidays. Happy New Year to everyone. Hope this year will be better than your last ;)

Still Alive

Tuesday, December 16, 2008

I think this is the longest stretch of time that I have spent away from the blog. As anticipated October and November were absolutely mental with work, most of which was self inflicted. Apart from sitting for hours at a time writing code, writing words and preparing presentations, I had a fair share of travel. I lost track of all the flights I had, but they included several trips to London, trip to Denver, and trips to the dot and the semi-colon.
