...writing!



Hi all,


Just to say that I am still around since a friend told me yesterday that I do not write any more.


Actually, I was thinking that I have not posted anything for a few months and I need to post one of the topics that challenges me but I have just been tied up with the reviewing our processes and preparing application updates.

Blog soon.
