Chuck Norris Facts

Posted by Mark

I have been reading about the controversy behind the website ChuckNorrisFacts.com and Chuck Norris for the past week but I only just now checked the Chuck Norris Facts and I have to say they are hilarious! When I was back in university me and my best friend started spreading a rumor around campus that Chuck Norris was coming to Lebanon to do a concert so it was fun reading stuff other people made up. Check it out, my favorite is “If you can see Chuck Norris, he can see you. If you can’t see Chuck Norris, you may be only seconds away from death.” [Link]

No More Malcolm

Posted by Mark

A lot of cool TV shows ended this year. I just read on CNN now that Malcolm in the Middle and That 70’s Show will not be coming back next year. Sucks. [Link]

Your Home Theater Setup

Posted by Mark

my home theater setup

In one of the forums I usually visit somone had a post asking for everyones home theater setup. This is mine:

TV: Panasonic TX-33P100X
Receiver: Kenwood KRF-V8881D
DVD Player: Sony DVP-NS575P
Speakers: Jamo X870 for left and right. Paradigm CC370 for center. Two OEM Kenwood speakers for surround (they came with an older amp). No subwoofer (Jamo’s have 10″ woofers built in)
Universal Remote: Sony RM-AV3000
Tivo: Series 1 Philips with 120GB drive

Future plans:
– Need to upgrade rear speakers to Paradigm ADP-170
– Need to get a Definitive Technology SuperCube Subwoofer
– Need to upgrade my TV to a Sony 34″ HDTV CRT
– Need to upgrade receiver, probably with a Denon

Click here for a largeer picture of my setup

Whats your home theater setup?

Update: I just replace my Kenwood receiver with the Denon AVR-2106 and the Sony universal remote with the Harmony 880.

Shops are Open

Posted by Mark

Someone told me that ALL stores are not allowed to be open in these 3 days of mourning. I heard that any store that is caught open would be fined KD1000. Supermarkets and grocery stores are an exception. So why is it when on my way to City Center in Salmiya yesterday did I find a bunch of shops open along the way? One of the stores for example was the laundromat “5 ASEC” (or something like that). I also heard that Costa and Columbus cafe were open on the first day. Yesterday Johnny Rockets, Texas Chicken and Subway were open in Salmiya.

What is allowed to open and what isn’t? I think nothing should be allowed to open just supermarkets and grocery stores. If I was in charge I would have gone around yesterday smacking people with fines and shutting down their stores.

Songs Used in CSI

Posted by Mark

For those of you who watch any of the CSI shows (Las Vegas, Miami, NY) you might have noticed that they play some really cool music on the show. Its mostly drum n bass and downbeat but you also get some other styles. I usually used to recognize most of the good songs they played but now recently they have been playing some really good stuff I had never heard of before. So, I did a bit of googling and I found this website that has the names of songs from each episode. Disappointingly I didn’t find the song I was looking for this time around, its from CSI NY episode 21. But I wasn’t put down by that, they still have hundreds of other songs listed. Check it out [Link]

24 – Season 5

Posted by Mark

Just finished watching the first 2 episodes of the show 24 season 5. All I can say is wow! Unfucking believable. There is no show out there that is even close to being as good. Episode 1 of season 5 is just shocking, I can’t say why because it would be a spoiler. I just have to say its amazing. Jack Bauer is really fucking cool!

Path Finder 4

Posted by Mark

Path Finder 4 is out now for the Mac. Its a software that you can use to replace the default Finder. It provides you with a lot more options and features, its basically everything the default Finder should have been.

This is what one reviewer had to say:

Path Finder is a browser-style file manager developed by a single person that absolutely embarrasses the Mac OS X Finder with its huge feature set. Version 1.0 of Path Finder shipped in 2001 after only 6 months of development. Today’s version 3 is miles ahead of that, and the upcoming version 4 is like the Final Cut Pro of file management. It’s a file browsing tour de force.

Sadly its not free, you get a 21 day trial period but then you got to choke up the cash. Its worth a test drive though. [Link]
