Reminder: 248AM Meetup Today!

Post by Mark

The 248AM Meetup is going to be held tonight (Monday, August 7th) at 9PM at the Starbucks in front of Al-Fanar Complex in Salmiya. We will gather upstairs and me and Nat will probably be the first people there.

If you don’t know anyone thats fine, no one knows anyone anyway and the purpose of this meetup is to meet new people and just hang out. So don’t be shy or anything like that, its just a gathering not a blind date.

Date: Monday, August 7th 2006
Location: Starbucks opposite Al-Fanar in Salmiya.
Time: 9PM

Here is a crappy map if you need one. [Map]

note: you can bring a friend with you if you want.
note2: if you have a Nintendo DS, bring it along with you.

Introducing Vista 2.0

Post by Mark

Vista 2

I love the way how Apple always manages to find a cool way of attacking Microsoft. Tonight is the Worldwide Developers Conference where Apple will be introducing some new products and someone managed to take a picture of a banner for the new Mac OS which has the headline “Introducing Vista 2.0”. If you didn’t get what it means its basically taking a shot at the upcoming Microsoft Vista (the new Windows) which is already more then 2 years late. Basically the poster is saying that OSX (Macs operating system) is already way more advanced then Vista. [Link]

update: another banner reads “Redmond has its own cat. A copycat.”

512KB DSL Prices in Kuwait

Post by Mark

These are the current DSL prices in Kuwait for a 512KB connection.

Qualitynet: KD24.5 a month (You need an NBK account for this price)
UnitedNet: KD25 a month (Yearly contract paid montly)
Fasttelco: KD70 a month (KD50 if paid 1 year in advance)

Just a note, Fasttelco had the lousiest sales guy when I called, really crap. UnitedNet don’t seem to have a website which I think is very ify Turns out they do have a website but google doesn’t know about it. With Qualitynet if you don’t have an NBK account then you need to pay the full year subscription in advance or you will have to pay the monthly fee of KD38.

Red Bull Chicks

Post by Mark

Two Red Bull chicks are in the office now giving out Red Bull cans and talking about some offer or something. I would rather have two Hardees chicks giving out Roast Beef N Cheddars and talking about their offers instead.

Tip of the day

Post by Mark

If you find something on Amazon you want, buy it on the spot. I had two items this past week which I added to my wishlist only to find out the next day that they weren’t available anymore.
