fastr – a flickr game

Posted by Mark

Fastr is a really addictive game which I have been playing for the past hour.

Fastr is a game that uses flickr images. It loads ten images that all share a common tag, one by one, and you guess what the tag is. When you guess right, the tag will turn blue. Then you can watch the pictures until the next set begins. The faster you guess, the more points you get. The points are reset every five minutes.

In one round I was able to score in the top 5, its really easy to play and its very fast. Type your guess and if it doesn’t turn out right quickly delete your word and try again. [Link]

Nintendo DS Lite

Nintendo DS Lite

Nintendo just announced the new slimmer cooler looking DS. The new DS “Lite” is less than two-thirds the size of the original Nintendo DS and more than 20 percent lighter. The new DS Lite also features brighter screens.

The Nintendo DS Lite gets released in Japan in March followed by a US and worldwide release soon after. The new design looks way better then the bulky orignals and I am now tempted to sell my current DS and get a new one.

In Kuwait? Order Pirated DVD’s & CD’s Online

Posted by Mark

I found a website yesterday that sells pirated DVD’s and CD’s online here in Kuwait.. and they deliver! The website sells DVD’s for KD1.5 ($5) each and they seem to have a decent collection. I don’t know how much the CD’s go for but I am guessing either the same or less. Payment is made on delivery and the delivery is free of charge. [Link]

Update: There is another site that will also deliver DVD’s to your home, but they require you to buy atleast 3 DVD’s at KD2 ($6) each. You also place the order by phone and they seem to have a large collection. [Link]

New Look, Same Great Taste

Posted by Mark

I just finished upgrading my blog to the latest wordpress and I also went ahead and changed the look of the website.

I don’t like change and I hate it when people redesign their sites. You get so used to something and then overnight things change and its usually not a smooth transition. I tried not to change too much in the structure, I tried to focus more on making things clearer and easier to read while also adding some color to give it some life. The old look was really starting to feel pale and I was really starting to dislike it. I needed a change and I figured now would be the perfect time.

There are still some minor issues I need to fix but in general this is how the blog is going to look like. I will be working on various font options in the coming days and hopefully that will work out nicely. I wasn’t able to test the site on various browsers and systems so if you encounter a problem please tell me about it so I could try to fix it. Thank you.

Note: Please do a hard refresh (hold down shift and click on reload) to clear out my blogs old files. That should solve minor problems.

I just finished watching episode 5 from season 5 of the show ’24’. It was an amazing episode, there is no other show that is cooler, period. Nothing can come close, ’24’ is unfucking believably good. Jack Bauer is a motherfucker!

Video: Fun at Work

Posted by Mark

fun at work

Awhile ago I went and got a 2 liter bottle of Pepsi and 1 roll of Mentos to try the experiment I posted about last week. When I got back to the office I called some friends out onto the roof-less balcony so I could show them this cool experiment. Since I didn’t tell anyone what was going to happen they nearly all got sprayed including the cameraman as you can see in the video. The Pepsi fountain hit 3 meters high although it doesn’t really show in this tight shot clip. Download the video and check it out. [MOV 115KB]
