Isn’t it annoying to search in a search engine and only to find your most trusted one return results of a whole list of blogs populating page 1?
With all the hype of 1 GB email from Google and SpyMac, the 100 MB email storage from Yahoo!, I often wonder what the hell is the Redmond giant doing. Maybe they didn’t read the news that I read and are not aware of the competitor’s storage space offerings.
So let me guess how much Microsoft will offer. Er, 20 MB perhaps? MSN Hotmail has the most email accounts I think, millions and millions, to offer 1 GB would be quite unrealistic. I’ll wait and see. Meanwhile, there’s Google’s Gmail for me. In case, you’re wondering what the hell is my email address, you can reach me at dew(at)beconfused_dot_com
Also, I am wondering if anyone has a suggestion for a new layout. Provide me with the picture with good resolution and I’ll build it up. I’m trying to build other types of layout.
I need to get my pay back. My neighbor says that he'll wait for a call from the guy who always contact them. But the person never called up. The person's name is Ah Tai or Ah Zai or Ah Cai.
Let's just called him Ah Fai.
I asked my neighbor - let's call my neighbor Ah Wai - Ah Wai to give me Ah Fai's number. Ah Wai says he doesn't have, so he rang up Ah Bai [New Character, Ah Bai is Ah Wai's friend who introduce him to work at Ah Fai's place].
Ah Bai didn't have Ah Fai's number too. Ah Bai instead gave Ah Wai another person's number. That person shall be known as Ah Mai. I was told by Ah Fai that Ah Bai suggest me to call up Ah Mai to get Ah Fai's number. I did so and Ah Mai answered with an angry tone. Ah Mai gave me Ah Fai's number. Let's delete Ah Bai from the picture since he's no longer needed.
Ah Mai told me that Ah Fai didn't give her the piece of paper where my working process is recorded. I called Ah Fai and found how he is no longer working there. Then I return back to Ah Mai and Ah Mai say she'll clarify with Ah Fai.
Ah Fai says he'll clarify with Ah Mai too. Ah Fai and Ah Mai probably had a quarrel the other evening because they apparently fail to contact each other as promised.
Thankfully, Ah Mai found my working sheet and suggest me to go down to that work place to get the pay. But I don't know how to get there.
So Ah Mai kindly offered to bring it to me in Bukit Batok (I live in this area). But she never did call me. So the next day, I called Ah Mai again. She says she works till 1 a.m. and wouldn't pass by Bukit Batok as I slept already.
I'm getting quite mad, especially when I have been trying to get the pay from Ah Mai since Monday!
This afternoon, I called up Ah Mai again. She says she'll pass by Bukit Batok today and she can bring my pay over to me. She's late by 15 minutes, but I gotten my pay. She gave me $60 expecting me to return her $3. Sadly for me, luckily for me, since I have only $2 in my pocket, I returned her $2. I earned a total of SG$58. For all the trouble, all the sweat, all the bumpy bus rides in Tuas, I think I seriously deserve the extra dollar.
In the past, I dislike travelling. I thought it'd be great if I can just travel from one place to another in a split second. It'd be great for everyone, probably except airlines and FedEx as their purpose would have been pretty much expired. Well, it turns out that Nature reports the first step of my dream coming true.
Scientists have performed successful teleportation on atoms for the first time, the journal Nature reports.Although I no longer fancy the idea of travelling around in split seconds, the idea of faster computers still excites me. Well, I'll wait for another 20 years to see if these qubit thingy comes true.
The feat was achieved by two teams of researchers working independently on the problem in the US and Austria.
The ability to transfer key properties of one particle to another without using any physical link has until now only been achieved with laser light.
Experts say being able to do the same with massive particles like atoms could lead to new superfast computers.
This development is a long way from the transporters used by Jean-Luc Picard and Captain Kirk in the famous Star Trek TV series.
When physicists talk about "teleportation", they are describing the transfer of "quantum states" between separate atoms.
These would be such things as an atom's energy, motion, magnetic field and other physical properties.
And in the computers of tomorrow, this information would form the qubits (the quantum form of the digital bits 1 and 0) of data processing through the machines.
The landmark experiments are being viewed as a major advance in the quest to achieve ultra-fast computers, inside which teleportation could provide a form of invisible "quantum wiring".
These machines would be able to handle far bigger and more complex loads than today's super-computers, and at many times their speed.

I am an 20-year-old guy, currently studying in Singapore Polytechnic, Biotechnology (Bioinformatics). Currently in second year. I am interested in web design, and hopes to be interested in Biotechnology.
I don't know if you recognize her, but she's Ayumi Hamasaki. I have been listening to quite a lot of her songs recently, so I thought I made a layout of her. Haven't got any ideas for the next layout though. All suggestions welcomed.
