Back to Work

Posted by Mark

Starting today I am back at work. I had to cut my ten day vacation short because I am needed back at the office. I wouldn’t call it a vacation actually, it was more like being under house arrest. I couldn’t leave the house and I could sleep late or wake up late because I had to take care of Geo (my dog). Thursday his cast will come off hopefully. For now, it feels good being back at work.

Ferrari F1

So I was at Virgin earlier and the section in the back where Nissan used to be is now closed off and there is a Ferrari Formula 1 car on display there. If anyone is interested that is.

Qualitynet Prices Now Cheaper?

Posted by Mark

My Qualitynet DSL account expires next month and so I was just checking their website to see if they have any new offers because last year when I signed up they had a double your bandwidth offer. So I am checking to see how much 512KB will cost me this time around and to my surprise its KD100 cheaper. Last year if you signed up for 1 year of 256KB they would double the bandwidth to 512KB. I paid KD380 then. This time around I don’t see a double your bandwidth offer but a 512KB connection now costs KD280. The sad thing is 1MB is still KD560 a year which is double the price, maybe my sister who lives next door and steals uses my internet will pitch in for a 1MB (hint hint Rampurple). [Link]

X-Files Mural

When I was in university I was a big X-Files fan and while flipping through some old files I found a picture of a painting I had done on my dorm room wall. If you look closely you can see Mulder shooting a runaway alien…

Update: Cool found more pictures of my first dorm room.. [Picture 1] [Picture 2]

Graphing Kuwait Blogs

Posted by Mark

graphing kuwait blogs

I just used Alexaholic to graph and compare traffic with my site and other Kuwait bloggers and I found the results interesting. It seems most of the time our traffic dips and peaks together. The Kuwaiti blogging community in a way is connected together which makes sense if you think about it. We all for example got more traffic when the Amir passed away since everyone abroad wanted to find out what was happening in Kuwait. We probably also got a dip in traffic during the vacation when many Kuwaiti students studying in the US came back to Kuwait and stopped checking the blogs. You can check out the chart and see what I am talking about by clicking the link below. You could also plug in your own blogs and check and compare. [Link]

2:48PM [The A-Sides]

Posted by Mark

When I signed up for hosting the other day with Dreamhost they gave me a free domain name and I decided to go with 248pm.com.

So now I have 2:48AM and 2:48PM which is cool but I need to figure out what to do with the PM site. Any ideas?

Burning Garbage

Posted by Mark

trash

I love the smell of burning garbage.. it reminds me of the old days in Lebanon. During the war people burned the garbage because there was no one to come and pick it up so now whenever I smell burning garbage I just remember Lebanon. I am currently sitting on the balcony with Geo and it seems there is a pile of garbage in my neighbourhood that is currently on fire, I can’t see the fire I can just see the smoke rising up behind one of the buildings and I can smell it really well. There is like a really huge pile of garbage near my building which I have been hoping would catch on fire but that hasn’t happened yet. If the baladia doesn’t want to take care of the trash then we should take things into our own hands. Too bad I am too chicken to start a fire myself.

The Ultimate Burger?

Posted by Mark

Wow this sounds like something I would love..

The Grizzlies and Krispy Kreme Doughnuts have teamed up to create “Baseball’s Best Burger.” The burger, which was introduced at Gateway’s December 10th sale, consists of a thick and juicy burger topped with sharp cheddar cheese and two slices of bacon. The burger is then placed in between each side of a Krispy Kreme Original Glazed doughnut.
