I've been wanting to blog about this for months already but I kept on pushing it back to my tasks-in-line list. First I thought I would scribble it last November when my earthly age was incremented by one but I decided not to.

Then last December to serve as a 'year ender' but still it didn't push through.

January to spark plug the year... but still, I held back thinking I'll blog it instead in February when the site turns one.

March... and now it's April (mid-April to be precise (and i've even reached the last week of April before I can actually post it online)) and I think it's about time.

This workblogs/site serves a lot of purposes... one of them is as a digital bookmark of the things I have done and achieved. In the future I am hoping I could look back and read some things I have done in the past.

(And honestly, there are posts where I don't really give a modem's arse if someone is reading or not reading.

(This one belongs to the not part... :o)

At first, I planned on posting details of each project I have handled since November of 2002, months after I transferred here to Metro Manila... but then again that would be lengthy so I'll just give a list.

'FL' stands for a freelance project/client and 'RJ' stands for the 'Regular Job'. The ('regular job') company I am connected with does not mind the freelance things I do as long as I complete the tasks I am assigned to deal with.

The personal database projects are things that I do which serve as exercises (usually during morning or when I'm not in the mood) so that I can get into the coding zone.
