Back in high school I had a class mate who used to be brilliant with numbers and applied mathematics. You might image an awkward guy with large glasses, top of the class with little to no social skills. That’s quite far from the truth. He didn’t really care about grades and he wasn’t exactly lacking friends. He did, however, managed to change my deeply rooted opinion about Poker being a game of pure luck. (more…)
A true professional – an individual that stands out by doing his/her job flawlessly under circumstances in which others fail. They’re pretty rare these days. I must say I’ve had my fair share of bitter experiences with salespeople and service providers in the past, experiences ranging from complete lack of interest in taking my money to rude comments. Today, I’m going to tell you about a person that surprised me by setting a very positive example. (more…)
It’s been almost two days since I arrived here in the city, where I will be staying for the duration of my studies at The University of Glasgow.
I left home Sunday night and spent about 7hrs in Luton airport waiting for my connection to Glasgow. It was exhausting and very cold because of the janitor who blocked the doors opened while obsesively cleaning the entrance carpet for most of this time, insisting on the same spot.

As for those that are, it’s never the last beer. This inspired me to write a new series about some of the people that I’ve bumped into during my high school years. I already have two episodes planned which I will probably post tomorrow.
An account alias is another name that you can register with Yahoo and attach to your existent account. You will be able to log in to the instant messaging application using either an alias that you have created or the actual account name in combination with your main password. You don’t need to set up a different password for your aliases since you’re actually using the same account, but with a different name.
That means, your contact list is the same whether you log in with your alias or with your account name. You will be able to receive IMs directed to both your main account and your alias. If you have an ID that you don’t like anymore but have a lot of contacts associated with it, you don’t need to abandon it.
