soooo.... After a long hiatus (dang, that is a "sexy" word!) I'm finally back!
mostly, it's been a year of major upgrades of our payroll and HR software at work, as well as a few other hardware and network changes.
which basically means I have to resolve lots of problems created by a lot of other idiots who haven't got a clue what they are doing and how it affects others...
result? lots of wasted nights and days fixing things that shouldn't need to be fixed.
but I suppose that pays for the camera gear?...
one good thing out of all this crap: I managed to squeeze in another trip to East Timor last month.
as usual, it turned out to be STUNNING!
this time around I had a chance to visit a coffee plantation run by some very old friends.
it's up high in the mountains, and you can see somewhere in the recent deviations a photo taken from the veranda of the farm house towards one of the major volcanic peaks in the island.
left me speechless! had been there many years ago as a kid. first time back. a very good friend of mine from high school days is buried there, he passed away on my birthday last year. good old Joćo, it was great to catch up with you and have a quiet chat. dunno if you heard me, but rest assured it was from the heart.
anyways, back into some semblance of normality, before the next batch of upgrades starts. that one will go until October next year, but it won't be as rushed as the HR one was. that means I might have time for some real photography!
I'll soon be posting some stuff here as time goes by, both from East Timor and from around the place.
