Internet Explorer vs Firefox vs Opera. Quite a funny take on the issue! =D

As a Chelsea supporter this latest loss to Liverpool really hurt. Liverpool is really our jinx, because we keep losing big matches to them: Champions League Final, and now they've also ended our 4-year+ unbeaten run at home.
Although I feel Liverpool didn't deserve to win, leading as they did through a lucky strike by Alonso, I do feel that Chelsea deserved to lose this one. There were enough glaring problems with the team today that they were expectedly unable to recover from being one goal down. The defence struggled to deal with Riera's dribbling and pace, and Kuyt's industrious running. Lampard and Mikel lost out to Mascherano and Gerrard. And the strikers played with a distinct lack of confidence, and squandered enough chances to deserve the loss.
Psychologically Chelsea was at a disadvantage, being the ones with more to lose, and the pressure mounted even more when they went a goal down. They weren't able to rally themselves mentally, and that was reflected in the way they played.
Hopefully the team will wake up after this defeat, and exact revenge during the away fixture.

Sometimes, I wonder if people do things intentionally to upset me. Sometimes, I also wonder why I get upset at such things. Sometimes, I wonder why I make posts like this.

Caught this interesting site off Lifehacker. Tip of My Tongue searches for words that match the criteria you give it - for example, that word starting with __ that means something like _____. Useful when you're looking for an exact word but can't recall it.

Sometimes I think of how great it will be if I stayed together with my relatives. One of my aunts stays at the end of a corridor, where there is a square space and 4 flats open onto it. That's almost enough for my mum and her 5 sisters (2 more can stay further down the corridor, it's having a big common space that's really cool). Then the old ones can play mahjong any time they like, and us cousins can hang out any time we like. And I could spend time with my nephews and niece and help them with their homework, and I can taste my aunts' wonderful cooking more often. (Of course, when I talk about relatives I'm referring to those from my mother's side. I see the ones on my father's side once a year on average, sadly, and I have trouble remembering who's who.)

I've been using Digsby to manage my email and social networking accounts for about half a year now, and it's finally developed to the point where I can recommend it to people.

Digsby integrates Internet Messaging (IM), email accounts and social networking account (mainly Facebook, for us Singaporeans) into one program. So from one program you can sign on to Google Talk and MSN and chat simultaneously, while checking your email and reading your Facebook status feed all at once. It allows you to keep status icons in your taskbar, so at one glance you'll know whether you have new emails (Figure 1). It also notifies you of new events through unobtrusive slide-ups. The InfoBar is also very nifty (Figure 2), I can put off reading and replying to my emails until I have to.

Anyway, I recommend everyone to at least give it a try.
