I hate living in England. Just not enough time to enjoy yourself. You have to work to make a living, and to make a living you have to work hard. And the living you make isn't worth sh*t when it comes to putting a roof over your head, or petrol in your motor. A big waste of time, apparently called the rat-race.

I'm back in Thailand now, and the money I would have wasted on buying expensive cars and unaffordable houses and other the other apparent necessities of the western world is now being put to better use on a small wooden house, on a tropical island. Life is sweet and simple. I have a beatiful girl by my side and but a 100cc scooter for transport.

Sure, Thailand has it's problems, but they don't affect me as directly as the problems found in the western world, which affect everyone that lives in it.

Anyway, enough grumbling for now. I've got lots to keep me busy for now. I have to sort out a few development environment issues, so I can continue with gtranslator development, and help bring GNOME to the Thai people. It appears there is only one other translator of GNOME to the Thai language, and he (a native Thai) is busy atm with a new university course, so it looks like I am on my own for now (once I've finished the outstanding gtranslator bugs, that is).

More to come later. Nice to have time to post again. I'll try to fill in the gaps a bit too, next time.
