I found this in the wilderness of the internet, and I think this is not a joke, but reality:

A man is flying in a hot air balloon and realizes he is lost. He reduces height and spots a man down below. He lowers the balloon further and shouts: "Excuse me, can you tell me where I am?"

The man below says: "Yes, you're in a hot air balloon, hovering 30 feet above this field."

You must be an engineer" says the balloonist.

"I am" replies the man. "How did you know."

"Well," says the balloonist, "everything you have told me is technically correct, but it's no use to anyone."

The man below says "you must be in management."

"I am" replies the balloonist, "but how did you know?"

"Well," says the man, "you don't know where you are, or where you're going, but you expect me to be able to help. You're in the same position you were before we met, but now it's my fault."

Who? What? Why?

Who? There is no point in hiding my true identity, my name is Ignas Limanauskas. I work in software industry, real-time mobile communications sector, if you will. Since 2001 I live in Japan.

What? This is yet another attempt to start a regular blog (if you are wondering why, look below). I think that last attempts have failed because I did not manage to define them properly and was not really sure what shape should it take. This time I will try to focus on what I do and something that induces some thoughts (rare event anyway). This attempt may be another failure, but why give up without trying?

Why? Mainly for myself and hopefully somebody would find this interesting. In the years to come I may find the following posts self-reflective. By no means I expect a flood of audience. If the almighty Google finds this little site not page-rank-worthy, good, if yes, better. Yet, if anyone searches directly I expect the big G to point them here. I really wonder who could that be? Friends? Enemies? Colleagues? The Suspicious? Identity thieves? People searching random names? I really do not care if there is just one visitor per week (i.e. me).
