Geo on uppers

Posted by Mark

geo

We took Geo to the vet over the weekend to check and see if his leg had healed. We removed the bandages from his leg and for the first time in 10 days he was able to scratch and lick it, I swear it must have been ecstasy for him. We decided to take some x-rays just to be safe and it turned out his bone had nearly completely healed and that we could keep the cast off him if we could make him not jump and run for the next week. That ofcourse is just impossible since Geo is like a puppy on speed. So we put the cast back on for another week. He should be in fit condition before his big day next month at the dog show.

Choowy Goowy Waiting List

Posted by Mark

choowy goowy

I just ordered a jar of cookies from Choowy Goowy, at first the person I spoke to told me they don’t deliver just one jar and I needed to order more. I told him I had already ordered a jar alone before and that there are always people ordering from my office. He told me OK but that I would get my cookies in two days. I was like what about tomorrow, because when you crave cookies you want them right away, not in two days.. he told me he would try to get me them by tomorrow afternoon but no promises.

Seems their business is doing good and they are really busy, but I don’t like the idea that a person should order more then a jar and that he should wait two days to get it. I hope they don’t become slow like Aramex..

toot: The Arab blog network

Posted by Mark

toot

Toot is like safat but instead of it focusing only on Kuwait Blogs, Toot focuses on all Arab blogs in the region.

The idea is good but I just haven’t been able to use Toot the way I use Safat. In Safat I scroll down the page reading a “post title” followed by reading a sentence or two from that post. If the post preview sounds interesting I open it in a new tab and continue reading the full post on that bloggers site.

With Toot I can’t do that since the only thing I see is the post title and the blog its from.. no post preview. Sure they have a section on the main page called tootreads but these are a few handpicked posts and they are not updated very often. Even the tootstream where all the latest post titles are displayed isn’t easy to use since the name of the blog is highlighted more then the post title itself. I would think the title of the post would be more important then the title of the blog since you are there to find new posts to read and not to read blog names. Another issue I have is with the voting system. If you like a certain blogger you can vote for them and give them a rating. The problem is its not an easy procedure, to vote you need to give them your email address and they will send you an email with a link to confirm your vote. They are doing this I am guessing to keep away cheaters but this isn’t a full proof plan and it makes voting a pain in the ass.

I do like the general visual theme of Toot and I really think Safat needs to get redesigned into something thats as appealing. Even the “new” Safatoo isn’t any better and if anything its a lot worse then the classic safat. Safat is lacking an identity and thats where Toot is succeeding the most. Anyway if you haven’t checked Toot out yet please do and tell them what you think. [itoot]

Quark redesigns logo.. again!

Posted by Mark

quark

Back in September, Quark, the company behind one of the most popular publishing software’s released a new redesigned logo. It wasn’t a bad idea if it wasn’t for the fact that their redesigned logo looked like a copy of many other logos. The design industry was very critical on Quarks redesign and it seems it must have gotten under their skin because Quark just released another newer logo. I personally don’t like their latest redesign, it looks like a button. [Link]

The Price is Right

I was just reading Pearls blog when her post on Game Shows reminded me of my favorite show.. The Price is Right. I really love it, I don’t know why, I think maybe because it reminds me of the summer I spent in California. I was always terrible at guessing the prices of the items but thats because they would be like totally random stuff that I would never use in my life. Anyone know where I could find torrents of the show because I would really like to download some episodes..
