My Next Alarm Clock?

Posted by Mark

sound bridge

Just checked out the new Roku SoundBridge Radio and it looks really sweet. It has built in wifi to connect to the web and gives me access to over 10,000 radio stations and even allows me to connect to my itunes. The only thing putting me off is the price tag of $350. The only way I would be willing to pay this much is if the sound turn out to be pretty good. If it turns out to be built using some cheap ass speakers it might be better off for me to get a media streamer and connect it to my Nakamichi alarm clock. [Link]

Problem with Comments

Posted by Mark

Yesterday I added a spammer to the blacklist and it seemed to have blocked everyone and anyone from posting a comment on the blog. I emptied the blocklist now and everything is back to normal. Sorry about that.

Formula 1

Posted by Mark

f1 logoI hate the fact that Formula 1 isn’t a popular motor sport in Kuwait. Actually I don’t think any kind of motor sport is popular in Kuwait. When I was in Lebanon if there was a Formula 1 race on TV you wouldn’t find a single person on the streets. Since I have moved back to Kuwait I have lost touch with the Formula 1 world. The races take place on Sundays which is a day off in the majority of the world but not in Kuwait. This means when the races are on I am at work with no access to television. Anyway I think I found a good site for F1 news. I used to check out F1.com and other F1 sites but they are all too heavy on the graphics and not very easy to navigate. Thew new site I am currently checking out all the time is the BBC F1 section.. except I use the text version of the page. Check it out, its very practical to use. [Link]

Kuwaiti Embassy Bombed

Posted by Mark

Two persons were injured by an explosion that rocked the offices of the Kuwaiti embassy’s information center in Beirut’s commercial thoroughfare of Hamra at mid-morning Monday. There were conflicting reports about the blast which was attributed first to a hand grenade, then to a letter bomb and then to a parcel bomb. More info when available.

Update: Turns out it was just a guy who brought a grenade with him to work and was playing with it when it went off.

Motel Signs

motel signs

A nice collection of Motel Signs from various parts of the US. I always wanted to stay at a Motel for some reason but I never got the chance, I guess since you see it so much in the movies and we really don’t have any similar places in Kuwait it becomes like something you can’t have which makes you want it more.

Miskan Plane

Meskan

I received the following email from jetblast2k:

Hi Mark, we usually know our aircrafts by their tail number, but today I noticed the nickname of 9K-ANC, an A340-300 of KAC, and took this shot for you. Check the [Link]

I was surprised to find out that Kuwait Airways planes had nicknames and I was really surprised to find out that one is called Miskan (although they spell it Meskan). Next time I fly with KA I will try to find out the nickname of the plane I am going to be flying with. If you have never seen the pictures taken by jetblast2k you should since he has some really wonderful stuff. [Link]

Note:
For those of you who don’t know, Miskan is a photography project I currently involved in. [Link]
