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]

Desperate Housewives – The Addiction

Posted by Mark

The other day I gave out Season 1 of the show Desperate Housewives to some employees at work and it seems everyone is now addicted to it. If you look around the office there are at least two employees quietly watching the show on their powerbooks. Two other employees were watching an episode during the lunch hour while the rest are staying up late at night trying to watch as many episodes as they can. I went to bed at 1:30AM yesterday after watching 4 episodes of the show, and even after I went to bed I wanted to go back to the living room to watch another episode (I got up to episode 20). The funniest part is no one can share the events of the show with another person no matter how big the event was because not everyone has gotten to the same episode yet. Some are ahead of others and spoilers are not allowed. Once everyone is done with Desperate Housewives I will get them Lost, that should keep them up late at night.

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

my hamster

I recently upgraded my hamsters home by doubling its size but ever since I did that my hamster has been acting strange. He shits where he sleeps, he stores his food where he pees and has been trying to destroy his only source of water for the past two days. He’s fucked in the head or something..

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]

First Shots with my Holga

Posted by Mark

I just got my first shots with the Holga today. Results were fairly decent. I like the square format of the photos but in general the photos look like they could have been taken by any camera. I guess thats a good thing since this camera did cost me only $20. I was hoping to see more weird effects like the picture above if you notice the bottom left area of the picture you can see it blur a bit. Now that I know the camera is working I am going to load it up with some cheap color medium format film and take some more shots. If you would like to see 3 more photos click on more.
