A lot transpired over the past one week. I could have blogged on and on about them but...Blogger.com was blocked from my previous workstation and my short-term memory wouldn't last long enough. To make matters worse, I didn't (and still don't) have access to the Net from home either. Despondency had hit a peak.
There was a high-profile showdown on Friday and I was the victor. I also planned to get Net connection on my mobile but the Hutch executive mislead me by saying that my phone didn't support XHTML. I gave up when he insisted that he was sure of it even though I remained skeptical. My feature-rich phone letting me down?!! No way! This was too much of an insult. I came home to consult the manual only to learn that I was indeed right. I felt like banging the head of the executive. Will do it next month when I revisit the shop to apply for the connection.
I've been a Hotmail devotee ever since I started using the Net 9 years ago. But my loyalty to Yahoo! cannot be equalled by anything, not even Google or Hotmail. Perhaps the only useful Yahoo! product I've not used in the last 6 years is its Mail. Things changed on Thursday when I switched to Yahoo! Mail Premium. The interface is a stunner and you get disposable mail addresses, just what I've always wanted. Though relinquishing Hotmail may be impossible since I've subscribed to too many services through it, I hope to gradually migrate to Yahoo! Mail in the coming months.
