This including the broadband service which came with a POP server with lots of space to I could keep email backups. However, there have been […]
As some of you know I am now settled in Singapore for three months – second night in staff accommodation at Nanyang University as a visiting fellow in the Institute of Defense and Strategic Studies. Aside from lectures and workshops the primary objective is to finish writing the book which will then hopefully be published […]
