After eight days of silence, this geek is back. Yes, I am finally able to blog again. Apologies to you my dear readers, I have not been able to update my blog since August 15. There are several reasons behind this. Or maybe you could call them excuses. But heck, I think they are valid excuses anyway. Let me enumerate:

  1. I did get a surprise bonus this month. And I needed a well deserved vacation from work. So off we (my better half and I) went up to Baguio to enjoy the cold climate and to visit my little brother. Perfect timing.
  2. Because of the vacation, the work load got a little heavy when I got back to the office (was in the office, with internet access, but can’t blog because of my work load)
  3. I am on training. My employer pays a lot of money for our training on Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007. Funny how I am longing to get a Mac but I work with Microsoft c***ware
  4. My Mac has not arrived yet. My old laptop already belongs to my sister, whom I don’t live with. This means I still don’t have a computer at home.

Fortunately, I’m with my sister this weekend. That means I’ll have a computer that I can use for blogging. But surprise surprise, the laptop has a virus. So, instead of blogging, I am now forced to waste precious blogging time to download an antivirus and to google ways to permanently remove the virus. How I wish she knows how to use Ubuntu…

Anyway, if you’re looking for news, results, and medal tally updates on the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, click here. Tomorrow is the last day and I hope Kobe and the rest of the Redeem Team reach the finish line of their road to redemption with a gold medal.

That’s it for now. I still gotta hunt for a good free antivirus for windoze…
