I am having withdrawal symptoms at the moment. It has been more than one week since I cannot surf the internet.
Back home in the Philippines, the internet plays a very big part of my life. I don't watch TV a lot but I get news from the net. And communications with friends and love ones too.
Communication is very much critical in the office at this moment. My boss, Mr. Butch Batilong, has to email his report to his big bosses in Thailand, but we couldn't get the internet to work. So I called up Timor Telecom and I was told they are having "technical problems" at the moment.
We don't have any other options. If we go outside and look for internet cafe, they have the same problem because there is only one internet service provider in East Timor.
So, we used the HP officejet 4-in-1 machine to send our report to Bangkok through fax. It is the first time we used this machine other than for printing so I grabbed the manual and followed the instructions by letter.
