This post is a reply to one by Sarah (AKA Half_Jack, AKA Hija de Rebujito) who challenged a number of Ipernitians to tell ten facts about themselves. I have no possibility of filming myself (thank God for that!), so unfortunately you’ll have to do with some text and a few new or unknown pictures.

June 27, 2007Yesterday, using the “Contact us/Report bugs” link at the bottom of every Ipernity screen, I sent a mail to Support and asked for extra bandwidth so as to be able to transfer all of my Flickr pictures to this place.
