Jose Mourinho is out!


I have not had a chance to watch English Premier Football League (EPFL). The reasons is that Astro (a satellite TV operator here) took an exclusive license to the English Premier League and I am using Indovision (Astro's competitor). EPFL is no longer available in my TV. Grrrr...

Now this. Jose Mourinho, Chelsea's coach, is out. I've just read it in a newspaper. It is still not clear to me what's the fiasco all about. Anybody?

Chelsea is my favorite team. Definitely Mourinho's departure will effect Chelsea performance. They have had a tough time last season. They don't need this. Argh. What can I do? Switch team? Not yet!


I think it's his relationship with the BIG BOSS in Chelsea. It's an old story that the manager and the big boss is not in a good relationship after the big boss disagrees the budget for buying new player and forced to buy Shevchenko. There has been a rumor that he had a fight with John Terry also, regarding of his performance lately.

Yes, IMHO, Chelsea's performance will be slightly affected by this, i'm pretty sure about that.

Wow.. we are 'The Blues' fans.
I think the-special-one is a pivot point of Chelsea FC. Without him, EPL rating will be slightly falling down. I'm sure about it.

I know I'm very surprised for this case. He is Chelsea. Chelsea is him.

But, We must looking forward and expect a new special character to build up the rest.

I prefer Deschamps or Scolari to be my best candidate.

Here is my top 10 rank:
Deschamps, Didier
Scolari, Fellipe
Eriksson, S Goran
Lippi, Marcello
Santanna, Tele (if not too old)
Hiddink, Guus
Klinsmann, Juergen
Capelo, Fabio
Advocaat, Dick
Beeanhaker, Leo

Is my rank look great??

Pak Budi,
You are not a good Chelsea supporter. If you were, you would have replaced your Indovision disc with ASTRO and not miss a single Chelsea match.

Anyway, I'm happy that Jose Mourinho quit just before Chelsea face Manchester United tommorrow. I bet Chelsea's performance will be very bad tommorow making it easier for MU to beat them.

Dear Rustamaji, I am not going to replace my disc just because of Chelsea. It's a matter of principle. Persaingan tidak sehat akan berakibat buruk sehingga tidak boleh didukung.

Hi Pak Budi,

It is sad as Mourinho is one of the best coach at BPL who has a charisma and highly respected by the team member...and I think this will resulting the gradation of Chelsea performance along the competitions and I am sorry that I feel now a little bit unexciting to watch chelsea team, wish all the best to the special one !! and as a matter a fact he is the "One" adios Mourinho...

I think Chelsea is not Chelsea anymore without "the special-one".

"The special-ne" is the best coach I have ever seen. :D

Himbauan Kepada Hacker & Cracker Indonesia & Malaysia

Kepada Hacker & Cracker Indonesia & Malaysia,

Saya mengharapkan anda tidak melakukan penyerangan atau/dan pengrusakan situs-situs Indonesia dan Malaysia.

Saya mengerti bahwa akhir-akhir ini beberapa masalah di dunia nyata membuat kita kesal dan marah. Namun kekesalan tersebut sebaiknya tidak dilimpahkan ke dunia maya (cyberspace). Semestinya sebelum melakukan aksi yang berdampak negatif, kita bisa melakukan langkah-langkah positif seperti melakukan dialog (melalui email, mailing list, bulletin board, blog, dan media elektronik lainnya).

Kita harus ingat bahwa kita hidup bertetangga dan bersaudara. Yang namanya hidup bertetangga pasti mengalami perbedaan pendapat. Mari kita belajar bertetangga dengan baik.

Saya berharap agar kita yang hidup di dunia maya mencontohkan bagaimana kita menyelesaikan permasalahan dengan kepala dingin dan hati yang lapang, sehingga para pemimpin kita di dunia nyata dapat mencontoh penyelesaian damai. Mudah-mudahan mereka dapat lebih arif dan bijaksana da…

Band progressive rock baru?

Lepas dari yang serius-serius sebentar. Kita ke musik lagi.

Terus terang saya tadinya mulai merasa bahwa musik progressive rock bakalan mati. Seperti lirik dari lagu band Asia - "Rock and Roll Dream":

When I see your faces from the limousine. No chance of our survival...

Tapi setelah saya mendengarkan The Flower Kings, harapan tumbuh lagi. Band yang dimotori oleh Roine Stolt (gitar) memiliki nuansa (melodi?) yang selaras dengan band-band terdahulu. Mereka sanggup membawakan lagu Cinema Show-nya Genesis dengan sempurna. Bahkan lebih baik menurut saya. Jadi, para penggemar sekalian, progressive rock akan tetap tumbuh subur.

Roine Stolt juga menjadi bagian dari band Transatlantic yang juga memiliki nuansa progressive rock. Maklum, mereka campuran dari Dream Theater, Marillion, The Flower Kings, dan Spock's Beard. Meski, ada lagu bootleged live show mereka yang kedodoran membawakan lagu "Firth of Fifth" nya Genesis. Ternyata band besar bisa kedodoran juga.

Repotnya, mus…

How I work, study, and listen to music

I always tell my students to find the most suitable ways to study. Sometimes, they way we study (or work) may look strange to "normal" people. So be it. Don't worry about it.

I remembered a story about a poet who always use paper with different colors when he typed his poem on his typewritter. (I guess this is a pre-computer/Internet era, eh?) He did that to make him more productive. There is no direct relation between the color of papers and productivity. You'll be crazy to research about this.

So, now here's what I do. I like fonts a lot. So when I type something on my computer, sometimes I use different fonts. At the end of the day, I converted the fonts back to the "standard" ones so that whatever I write - reports, papers, or just notes - can be shared and worked on by other people. That is why the use of "paragraph styling / formating" in word processor is important to me, because with one change I could change the whole document. Many peo…
