I Have been tried many mail client for my work email (Polymail, Spark, Outlook(!), etc), and as we all know, corporate web based email is ugly, from Zimbra to Microsoft Outlook, some might tried to make it look nicer, but still i prefer using a desktop app for my everyday mailing needs.

I was first introduced with triphop songs by my late-friend Taufik (GBU my friend), he introduced me to the type of Portishead, Hooverphonic, Lamb, Goldfrapp, etc. i was hooked, need more, just listening to a cassette (it’s year 2000 after all), mp3 is just booming, file sharing is everywhere (napster, kazaa, – yeah old), and i admit it that i was using that service a while back just to get the 2Wicky and Mad About You from Hooverphonic in MP3 format.
