Yesterday, I ran fast enough over a short stretch to have done a 12-minute 2.4 km. I need to measure out a proper 2.4 km stretch for faster runs.

I shall have to go run this evening, heat or otherwise.
A fast trip home and then I am back in the office. Heh. Hot hot day.

Weirdness abound

There is also an artist-cum-designer whom I have not ever met or heard of or talked to who had blocked me on Facebook (and he is not on my friend list either)! I did a check on him and I now know who he is.

A few months ago, he unblocked me curiously enough after I spoke to a friend about him.

How strange. Previously, he was unknown to me, now, he has drawn attention to himself by blocking me. He is obviously not the sharpest guy around.

How would you like to lower your taxes?

Some idiot just called saying that she was from Microsoft Singapore. She asked if I would like to lower my tax. I asked 'tax?' She said, 'Under the PIC scheme..' I asked if she was calling from a partner or some other company. She said she was from Microsoft. I asked if she were calling from Microsoft at Shenton Way and she finally admitted that she was from an outsourced company. I said, 'Liar' and hung up.

I hate it when people lie outright and misrepresent themselves. This is not the first time this has happened. Microsoft Singapore provides platforms like servers and so forth. It does not code applications. This would be left to their partners and other companies.

End of personal Pacnet accounts

The end of the personal and residential side of Pacific Internet. What a pity. The service wasn't particularly good, the storage space was miniscule. However, one would have a paid account with the same address for years. Stability.

Now that it is ceasing, well, I would have to inform my friends of the change in email address.

Ice-cream. That ice-cream trip didn't happen due to the heavy downpour over the weekend. Oh well. Next time then.

The man without a role

He is not a director, nor a writer, nor an artist, nor a person with ideas. His best-fitting role would be akin to that of a producer, coming with the funds and sponsors from the many people that he knows. He is good at networking.

Kickstarter and other crowd-sourcing methods should fit him well where he could hire a team for his purposes.

Of meaningless conflict

Unpleasant, militant, old girls versus rude, narrow egoist. Entertainment par excellence on a dreary Monday work day.
