Two cool Mac tips

Posted by Mark

Make your Dock be flush against the corner of the desktop, instead of centered vertically or horizontally. This means your icons will stay put, regardless of how many windows are open:

defaults write com.apple.dock pinning -string start ;
killall Dock

Turn off menubar transparency on 10.5:

sudo defaults write /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.WindowServer EnvironmentVariables -dict CI_NO_BACKGROUND_IMAGE 1

and then reboot (logging out isn’t enough). [Link]

Nissan GT-R

According to 4thring, the new Nissan GT-R will be on display at the Kuwait International Automobile Exhibition that is being held in Kuwait this month. If its true then it looks like this years motor show will be the best one yet featuring the Nissan GT-R, Spyker cars and the BMW concept car, the CS.

Animal Cruelty

Posted by Mark

spray painted dog

I passed by the animals section of Friday Market today and it was sickening. I hate going there and it had been a really long time since I was last there but I was curious to see if things had changed. They haven’t.

Isn’t there an animal care and control bureau here in Kuwait? Look at the picture of the dog above, it was spray painted, had strange stains all over him and what looks like wounds from a dog fight. Why doesn’t the government or animal bureau do anything about it?

Skyper

The Stallion commented in my previous Kuwait motor show post that Fouad Al-Ghanim will be bringing Spyker to Kuwait and they will have cars at the exhibition. I checked the Spyker website and it confirms that they WILL be at the exhibition so thats going to be pretty cool. [Link]

Kuwait International Automobile Exhibition

car show

Probably the only exhibition at Mishref that is worth going to and its going to be held from November 28th till December 4th. One automotive event I am surprised they haven’t repeated again is the 4×4 one that was held at Marina Crescent like 2 years ago. [Link]

Nintendo Wii for $79

Posted by Mark

nintendo wii 79

Last year Amazon had an offer where they sold a limited quantity of Xbox 360’s for $100. I tried to purchase one but wasn’t able to because their servers flooded and my connection wasn’t fast enough to get through. This year Amazon have a similar offer except its a chance to purchase the Nintendo Wii for only $79. For some reason they’ve changed the timings this year and now, if I want to have a chance to purchase one of these Wii’s, I need to be up Thursday at 5AM in the morning. Even though, I think I might actually wake up and try it. [Amazon Link]

update: Ok it seems its different from last years campaign. Since there was so much chaos last year, this year Amazon is RANDOMLY selecting 1000 customers who will be eligible to purchase the Wii at the discounted price.
