I went to the dentist last night and although I used to really hate dentists before, yesterday I started to like them a lot better. I was always worried that if the dentist was going to do something major to my teeth that I would be in a lot of pain during the procedure and then after while recovering. Yesterday I realized that this wasn’t true. After the dentist injected me with anestesia, he performed a minor wedge surgery which I didn’t feel at all. Last time I took anestesia for a dental procedure I was young and had to have some teeth pulled so I could get braces. It wasn’t a nice incident and I believe thats why I dislike dentists so much. Yesterday though the dentist operated on me and I wasn’t the least bit comfortable. It was incredible, and even after the procedure was done and I went home, the pain I was expecting to appear never did, not even today morning long after the anestesia has worn off. Now I have a second oppointment with the dentist tomorrow and I am not nervous about it at all.
One word of advise, if you have a problem with your teeth, don’t wait a long time to have it fixed, it won’t heal by itself and it will just get worse.
Wow this site is amazing, it has amatuer pictures of Kuwait from the early 70’s to the early 80’s. I love stuff like this!! [Link]
Tonight I did the last upgrade for my Mac, I added the DVD writer and the 250GB hard drive which arrive today from Aramex. The only thing I didn’t upgrade was the VGA card but that is on hold until a suitable option becomes available for me. Here are the before and after specs of my mac:
Apple PowerMac G4 733mhz
280GB Hard Drive
Sony 8X CD Writer (Doesn’t read DVDs)
Apple PowerMac G4 Dual 1.6Ghz
530GB Hard Drive
Pioneer 40X CD Writer / 16X DVD Writer
I just installed Tiger fresh on the new hard drive and everything is running super fast.
I just downloaded FireFox 1.5 (Beta 1) and first thing I noticed is that none of my extentions are compatible with it. Other then that FireFox still visually looks the same. I was expecting the icons maybe to be updated or something. The Prefrences control panel has changed, it now works like most other Mac apps. The browser seems a bit faster in loading up websites and actually FireFox 1.5 as a whole seems lighter and quicker. Sadly I will have to install the older version of FireFox again because I need my extensions. Here is the link to the FireFox 1.5 Beta 1 Start Page. [Link]
Was at Souk Sharq for lunch and I passed by the Sony store. They just released the Sony E507 MP3 player here and I played with it a bit and it looks pretty cool. Its 1GB and is selling for KD79.
I am currently updating the website’s theme slightly. If things look a bit off its because its not final yet.
Had lunch at Subway Salmiya yesterday. It was very disappointing. I ordered the Subway Melt and the Italian BMT and both of them the ingredients they used looked a lot different then the usual. The two sandwiches also didn’t taste like usual. Hopefully this isn’t the begining of the end for Subway in Kuwait. I have seen this happen before in Lebanon, everything was going perfect then suddenly the owner in Lebanon decided to use local ingredients, suddenly everything started to taste drastically different and then later he was shutdown by Subway International.
On the bright side they are accepting Sub Club cards once again, this time they are using different colored and sized stickers.
