Chelsea versus Manchester United Match Preview – April 2015

April 18, 2015 · Posted in English Football · Comment 

Chelsea and Man Utd

Today will be the day where the English football titans for the last 10 years will meet head to head at Stamford Bridge. The Blues currently tops the league table with 73 points over the Red Devils who are at 65 points, but played one game more. This is not just special just for the 2 biggest football clubs in England, but goes back to the history where Jose Mourinho meets his ex-manager, Louis van Gaal, when he used to be his first-team coach back in the 1990s.

At this point in time, I don’t see Chelsea slipping up and they are likely to win the Premier League, unless something drastically happened, where mathematically, Arsenal, Manchester United and Manchester City all stands a chance the clinch the title.

Well, for tonight, let’s see who gets the upper hand.

Cleaning up WordPress with Version 4.1

December 21, 2014 · Posted in Site Info · Comment 

WordPress CleanupWell, it has been an extremely long time since I blog on my site, and I absolutely feel guilty about it. I am still trying really hard to keep to my commitment to have at least a post written every month. So far, I have kept that record intact since August 2007.

With some time now, I thought of running some regular updates on my WordPress software, upgrading it to version 4.1. Then, I realized that there were several other plugins to be upgraded as well. Taking this opportunity, I simply proceed to write a short blog.

I really do need to keep up with my habit of writing my blog, only then it will keep my interest going. So, hopefully, you (my readers) may get to see more interesting stuffs coming along the way. In the meantime, it’s preparation for Christmas Day in 2014!

Invited to Join Ello, the New Social Network, Today

November 16, 2014 · Posted in Social Networking · Comment 

Say ElloA surprising email came into my inbox today – I was invited to join Ello. After several weeks of waiting to try out the entirely new social network, I finally could get my hands on what it claimed to be the next generation, simple, beautiful & ad-free social network.

Without much hesitation, I signed up for it and got myself an instant account. Like other social media networks (e.g. Twitter, FaceBook), I could add friends. Ello made it really simple for me by displaying some of their favourite (recommended) profiles to add (see screenshot below).

Ello Favourite Profiles

This is the first time using Ello, so I am still trying to figure out how to best make use of this social network for my daily stuff. Nonetheless, the 2 best things that come along with it are: 1) no ad, and 2) privacy, by not selling personal data to third parties. Anyway, the bottom line is, with an account, I can invite up to 10 people – so if you are interested, please feel free to contact me.

Bought an Acer XC-605 for Home Use

October 31, 2014 · Posted in Inventory · Comment 

Acer XC-605This year, I celebrated a milestone (x number of years) in my company. As such, I am given an incentive of $500 to reimburse for any selected list of items for personal use. I realized that my home machine is more than 10 years old (Dell Inspiron Laptop 5150), and I do need to have a totally new system. This “opportunity” comes in handy.

After in the IT industry for quite a long time, I come to learn that one can never really keep up with the technology. So, it makes my decision easier – I went for a simple basic home desktop (instead of a laptop) that does not cost anywhere more than S$1000. Given that I do have a working, powerful 22-inch monitor at home (HP w2207h), I basically purchased the bare-bone system.
