  1. I was asking yourself what is up with that weird gravatar??? I know 5am is early and also I’m not looking my most useful at that hour, but I hope I don’t look like this! I might however make that face if I’m asked to do 100 pushups. lol

  2. I tend not to comment, but after browsing a bunch of remarks here Sun Modular Datacenter S20 | AkuAdi My Life, My Journey. I do have 2 questions for you if you tend not to mind. Could it be only me or does it appear like a few of these comments appear like they are written by brain dead folks? 😛 And, if you are writing at other sites, I’d like to keep up with you. Would you list of the complete urls of your public sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
