What's your favorite website?

My favorite website is Facebook, because I can connect with my friends (especially with my woman friends). In this site I post different topics from my life, such as sentimental status or my interest. If you want, you can upload pictures and videos, or put funny pages's links . In my opinion, Facebook changed the way people communicate. However Facebook has a really big problem: is very addictive. A lot of friends takes a lot of hours of their life, watching the page and chatting with their friends (and with me too). On the other hand, I have a good friend that found a boyfriend on Facebook, and they will marry soon. I visit the page regularly, one or two times at least in a day. Facebook is changing every day, improving its tools and features. But the page have not a video call yet: this would be a great feature. The URL page is:

Kapsch product description

Kapsch Chile is currently working on an innovative project. This new project will allow access to Parque Arauco parking with the tag technology. The product used for this purpose is the antenna TRX1321. This antenna allows read the tag, until 48 km/hr. To access this integration service between parking and tag, the costumers have to sign an “addendum” in his current contract with the urban highway's concessional. The “addendum” allows to charge the parking items in the Concessional's invoice.

When the user enters to the parking lot, the antenna installed on the line, reads the tag and reports to the parking system if the tag is authorised in the Access List. This Access List is provided for de Concessional Entity. If tag is authorised, the parking system opens the barrier, and allows access for the client’s vehicle. In the exit, the process is the same, but in this, charge is calculated based on the stay time in the parking lot.

My principal interests are money and women, but my work is very important also. My job in Kapsch is project manager to Parque Arauco Project. I'm working in Kapsch for 7 years. I believe in hardwork and I try to be a good element in the company. I have a little child, his name is Nicolas. He's 5 years old, and he is the light of my soul. Although he lives with his mother, I see him 3 to 4 times in the week.
