My Enterprise (Tamay Dogan Network) is an Enterprise for creating
infrastructures (IT, Renouvelable Energies, ...) and I am working
exclusivly with women.  ;-)

Oops, I have forgotten, to mention, that TDnet is for developing
of women mainly in Moroco, Turkey and Iran.

AND (!!!), this give me very big problems since the Prefecture of
Strasbourg/France has stoped my Enterprise with a judgement.

1. I am foreigner which are not welcome in France
2. Women should stay @home and not working
   (The french gov is working on such directive since they
   are peoples which believe, that they are to many men in
   France without jobs because women)
3. I do development with (discriminated) foreign women and
   not with french women (hey, they are not motivated to
   work in IT and frenchies do not want to learn english, - 
   Sorry Chris, but now I am since 23 years in a french
   military service and I have enough of this BS in France!
   Specialy for the Ministry of Interieure)
4. ...

N. Endless list!

Oh, they have Kicked-Off my domain and NOW I will run an .IR domain
