Yes but not fully. I have been in very busy since I came to KSA. The projects that I have worked were not in very good shape so I have to work 200% to finish them on time and budget (Frankly don’t care the budget stuff).
The worst thing that can happened to my blogging is that I have broken my old buddy HP-Compaq 6110 notebook that contains everything that I wrote for blogging purpose. I have no time to rewrite them again. Another thing to be worse the situation is that everyone use proxy server here and windows live writer does not support some proxy configuration. Microsoft Word simply replies in No on proxy :). Any But for now I am completely concentrating on my certifications. I have a long way to go WRT my certifications. Here is (was) my plan.
