Some memories from Japan



In our shop we have to volunteer to tell something about ourselves in our little "IT Newspaper". I had a older picture from my contract time in Japan with the company NYK where we used to load in Indonesian oil fields and sometimes in local Texaco Ports and discharge in Kashima/ Japan.

So he scanned this picture for me. Hmmm it's been a while since I worked out, I guess seeing this pic I really have to get back to shape. The guy in the Blue Pullover is a colleague of mine(A Radio Officer on Board).



Here we're standing on the poopdeck(backside of the ship).

As an addendum, just this stats on page loads on the day I posted this blog. Hmmm all the more a reason to get back to pumping iron...



And just later in the evening lot's of hits and newcomers to the blog. Damn, people like the sheet...lol



And the Quarterly keeps rising too...



Cheerio,

Tarry

  5. Exactly Ha Ha!

    It was real fun working out then. You've got all the time in the world.

    I need to really get back to it.

  6. "Tell me/us something about yourself" -- one of those questions I could never get used to. Thankfully I have not been asked that too many times.

    Nice picture.

  7. Thanks for dropping by Manjusha. To me it was as difficult (well I felt a bit queasy about it). I had to give a picture with my little story and it got me thinking of trying to get myself the way I was sometime back.

    Well it did me some good, I'm starting tomorrow to get my abs/pecs and the works back in shape. I'm also gonna post some more stuff on myself (primarily for myself , I just posted a stats on page loads the day I posted this blog, apparantly it was viewed by many :-))to encourage myself to start picking/recollecting other parts of myself the way I left them.

    And really I avoided the "Tell me/us something about yourself" lot's of time. But sometimes you (re)discover yourself this way.

    Thanks again for dropping by :-)

Redhot Future Of IT Part I :Marketing yourself as IT professional

I had promised about the "RedHot IT Future Series" and so we discuss here how you should market yourself EFFECTIVELY as an IT professional in this new (and dangerous) web age! Web is the place where you're a hero today and villain tomorrow. While there are lots of professionals who are active on the web, not all are enjoying a good reputation as they got "personal" with others and got into a cockfight. The passive IT professional has nothing to lose but nothing to gain at all!

I know "marketing" might seem as a greasy term but the idea is to have the truth about you out there. You know you're a good person and your family knows that you're really smart person but the rest of the world doesn't!

So the question is how do I market myself on the web as a true "nouveau IT professional". A guy who companies will be tempted to pick up the phone as say "Hey, we wanna talk with you. Can you fly over to Palo Alto (or Guatemala or Johan…
