Relegation guesses

It is hard to guess which teams would be relegated. I had guessed Stoke City, Hull and Crystal Palace in the 2013-2014 season. It turns out that Norwich, Cardiff and Fulham were relegated.

I usually get them wrong.

Prediction for relegation candidates 2014-2015

My prediction for relegation candidates 2014-2015 are:

Crystal Palace
Queens Park Rangers

Acrobat bloat

It takes forever to open Adobe Acrobat .pdf files. Scrolling through the document is extremely slow too. Likewise, printing. I remember that the Acrobat Reader was once a 4MB programme, now, it is a piece of unwieldy bloatware that ties up a lot of resources.

Sunny Bookshop

Sunny Bookshop is finally closing for good. I used to purchase science fiction novels from them in the nineties before the arrival of Borders. The selection then was fairly complete, one could find all the books of a single trilogy for instance.

This incarnation of Sunny Bookshop is at Plaza Singapura. The previous two iterations under the original owner were at Plaza Singapura.

I have also visited San Bookstore, the current owner of Sunny, since the early nineties at Peninsula Plaza and other locales. Sadly, all the San Bookstores are closing as well.

I bought two volumes last night.

Thursday! Wheeeeeeeee!

Smashed vehicles

I saw a badly smashed taxi and car on the road last week, this morning I saw two badly smashed cars on the same road. Wow!

I don't think anyone was injured in both accidents though but the cars were wrecked.
