You've got problems?

Problems are there for us to solve. We would not live without a problem, be it small or big.

Look around you and find ways to solve your problems. A lot of things could be your inspirations.

My family, my wife and my daughter are my inspirations.

Btw, here is a pix of my daughter, zOey, who sleeps like a starfish.

What I thought initially to be a quick upgrade turned out to be a long 4-hour task.

Finally, here is my laptop on Windows 7 Ultimate
