Heathrow Injection

Posted by Mark

Heathrow Injection n. Term given to the phenomenon of sudden and very rapid horizontal expansion, particularly experienced by non-British persons, upon settling in London.

Heathrow Injection is an interesting term I just learned the definition to awhile ago and I am thinking it can easily be modified to fit Kuwait since we have the same problem here.

Rock Crawling in Kuwait

Posted by Mark

Kuwait Desert

I was just checking out pictures taken by a regular commenter on my blog (Hudis) and I found pictures of the Kuwaiti desert but like nothing I had ever seen before. We have mountains in Kuwait? I am guessing this is the Mutlaa Ridge near the Iraqi border and it looks like an amazing place. I didn’t think the pictures were in Kuwait until I noticed a car in one of the pictures had a Kuwaiti license plate. This place looks like a cool place to rock crawl with 4×4’s. [Link]

Snow comes to deserts of Dubai

Ski Dubai

The indoor ski slopes finally opened up in Dubai and looking at the pictures on their website makes me jealous that we don’t have anything similar here in Kuwait. Entrance price is only $35 and that includes clothes and equipment rental which I think is a pretty good deal. But, the place doesn’t look “that” big so I am curious to find out if its going to be over crowded the whole time or not. [Link]

Ferrari Theme Park – Abu Dhabi

Posted by Mark

They are opening a Ferrari theme park in UAE which will feature a racetrack, rides, and attractions, a display of Ferrari history, and even driving instructions. Its seems like a good idea but I would rather they open a 4×4 theme park here in Kuwait. The 4×4 park could have different rough and muddy trails which you could take your jeep through. I remember reading about one in Japan where you would bring your 4×4 and then pay to go around their offroad trail. [Link]

New Arrivals

Posted by Mark

Cool, seems Beirut is the place to be although I don’t understand why with all the recent political crap going on.

CooSt Tropez? Passé. Ibiza? So over. The hottest spots for bars and clubs in Europe right now are not where you’d expect. [More]

Single-letter Domains

Posted by Mark

Single-letter second-level domains are domain names in which the second-level domain consists of only one letter, such as x.org.

Such domains are rare, as on December 1, 1993, IANA explicitly reserved all single letter and single digit second-level domain names in the TLDs .com, .net, and .org.

However, the few such domains that were already assigned were not recalled, and so circumvented the restrictions that have existed since.

i.net INet Corporation
q.com West Communications
q.net Q Networks
x.com PayPal
x.org The Open Group
z.com Nissan

game center

I just found the blog of Faisal Al-Dhalmawi at 1up.com. He has a very interesting write up on Video Gaming in Kuwait. He was even able to take pictures of some of the stores from the outside AND inside! Pretty cool stuff. [Link]
