I like to do kitchen experiments so I am mostly cooking without any recipes, take a pinch of this a onion here add some herbs and couple slices of chicken and see what you get. Usually very tasty. Recent experiments include - Rye bread, pickled cucumbers/beetroot, ginger/liqourice root/star anis mead brew (we'll see how that turns out in the warmth of Thailand) it will either taste delicious or totally foul.
Daily activities is to drop my daughter to school, work on the internet and sometimes visit friends, prepare dinner, pick my daughter up, get back home and serve dinner and see that her schoolwork is done. Yep I am a work from home Daddy. Soon I hope to be able to go out again to throw some good games of darts with friends I hardly seen for the last few years..

My daughter keeps me busy and dreams of a better future, hopefully a good start has been made by joining this place to learn even more and make new connections.
My Location: Bangkok, Bangkok
I'm and educated TV repair guy who has been connected since -94.
Working with IT-support from PC and Server Hardware, corp. networks, firewalls, software install and user support, web dev for netscape 0.9f and onwards.
Until 2002 when I decided to change location and to live a slower paced life in Thailand.
Been here now for 8 years straight, got married and have one daughter of 5 1/2 years.
More or less been the "home dad" and trying to chip in with a few checks here and there between my "daddy jobs" that has come from different online projects.
Now my daughter is in school, so it's time to get serious about business again. And see if my gained online knowledge the past 15 years is of any use.
Got some basic PHP skills so I improved a pretty cool wordpress plugin a few months back, it now adds Amazon related products on the fly to a Wordpress blog from any Amazon partner site DE, JP, UK, FR, CA, Com, it worked well so I released it to the public last month.
Also made poke in the eye of some "plug--in thieves" who claimed the plug-in was their original creation, and missleading users about a Tip-Feature. I was quicker by taking their chosen plug-in name - "AmazonPress" in the wordpress repository. I have hopefully credited the original author "Warkior" good enough in the readme and description files.
Also speak and write Swedish and Finnish pretty fluently.
Currently planning for my first MLM product and to build a proper down-line for a new health care product that I stumbled upon. Currently not available here in Thailand so it might be a pretty good opportunity if it kicks off, but it might be a little hard as my skills in Thai language is not what it should be, but hopefully I can outsource or get my wife to create some working ad-copy to use.
Still have about 2 years left on my goal to become a millionaire before I become 40 that I set before I moved to Thailand. But I am ok with less, as the living costs here is so much less than Sweden. But it would be nice to hit the target, and I was thinking about 1M Swedish crowns.
Cheers and all the best prosperity to you all in this interesting network.
