My Windows XP gave up on the way to Finland.
I had to reinstall it and I lost my e-mail settings. So I was working on the problem every day because I needed my e-mail.
Especialy e-mail from Sue
After compleation the discharging in Kotka we arrived to Porvoo ( More or less our homeport) 11th of May in the evening. We should load Gas oil and UL-95 to Copenhagen. Our Jetty was occupied by M/T Tärnfors, so we had to wait at the anchorage until 12th of May. We came alongside 9 o'clock in the morning. It was nice to get some time at the anchorage. I had some time to try get my e-mail back in order. No succses. But we don't give up.
I was thinking about my e-mail problem during the night and after my watch I tryed to turn of my "Internet Security" program and HOLA! I could send and receive e-mail again.
We left Porvoo 1 o'clock in the morning 13th of May for Copenhagen with our cargotanks full of Gas oil and Gasoline.
We arrived to Copenhagen in the morning the 15th of May. We had a TOTAL FINA vetting and 1 CDI inspection. So I was busy and the chef had creamed spinach for lunch that I missed.
We got order to go and load Naphtha in Muuga (Tallinn) for Terneuzen in Holland. It should be time for me to leave the ship in Holland. Nice!!
Just before leaving Muuga the Chief Officer called from Tärnvind and asked where I was. (They told me 2 times from the company that they had spoke to him about me being deleyed, I spoke with the company only 2 days before and they told me:
- We have spoken to Michael and he knows that you will be late.
Well, what can I say? We agreed that I'm releiving him before the weekend. We will be in Terneuzen on Wednesday 22nd of May so I hope I can releive him on Friday.
When passing Sweden (Skåne) I got a chance to send e-mail. I had to borrow the 2nd Officers mobile phone. My mobile broke down on the way to the ship just 2 days after I got it back from service. It's the same problem again, the phone freezing and turn off it self. NOKIA. Yes, we have e-mail onboard but then everyone can read my "Oh yes, I love you letter" embarrassing. And I also wanted to update my web page. I try to update my page as often I can. So keep your eye's open
for updates. Especialy now when I had made a
directory page with a easy to use
Well, anyway no e-mail from Sue.
Hmm, If I can be honest there has not been any mail since I send her my photo
