idontlikeyouinthatway.com Blocked

Posted by Mark

What the fuck, I was just checking idontlikeyouinthatway.com as I have been doing everyday now except today its blocked by my ISP Qualitynet! Why did they block it now? It didn’t have any nudity recently or anything controversial. There are worse sites out there and they decide to block celebrity gossip! Unbelievable!

Bazaar Magazine Knows Shit

Posted by Mark

bazaar

I just read a post on K The Kuwaiti’s blog about an article in Bazaar magazine on local bloggers. While the whole world is talking about bloggers and realizing their online importance, our local Bazaar magazine seems to think us bloggers don’t have a life and are just a bunch of loser hermits living at home. I guess that article basically summarizes the magazine’s naive mentality. I should blame the author of the article but I would rather blame the editor instead since he was the one who approved this crap. Maybe the Bazaar editor should try using the Internet one time and maybe check up on the definition of bloggers before he would agree to allowing a lame ass article like that get published. Oh well, it is Bazaar in the end so you can’t expect too much intelligence. [Link]

Slot Car Cam

slot car cam

I just watched this amazing video of a slot car race which under normal circumstance would be normal except the guy had mounted a tiny camera on the tiny slot car. It was really cool watching the video from that perspective but if only it was a bit brighter. [Link]

Random live webcams from the Net

These webcams were found automatically through a variety of clever search techniques. Their owners might or might not have intended for them to be public. But they obviously are. Many of them are security cameras in companies or semi-public places. [Link]

Crystal Pepsi

Crystal

I was reading Edjamacated’s post on the discontinuation of the Vanilla Coke drinks. What grabbed my attention was that he mentioned that you would soon find boxes being sold on eBay. Well he is absolutely fucking right and to show you how right he is check this.

Back in 1992 Pepsi introduced a new Pepsi called Crystal and it was supposed to taste like regular Pepsi except it was colorless like 7up. Well it didn’t do very well and the product was discontinued a year later in 1993. Now if you go to eBay and do a search for Crystal Pepsi, 12 years after the product was discontinued, people are still selling bottles of it on eBay! Crazy shit. [Link]

Two Movies

Posted by Mark

Revolver
I usually like Guy Ritchie’s movies (haven’t watched Swept Away yet) but I didn’t like Revolver. It was very entertaining to watch in some places and Ray Liotta was really good but my problem was that the movie was trying too hard to be weird while I would have rather it tried to look funky.

Straight into Darkness
This was a war movie about two American deserters during World War II. I hadn’t heard of the director Jeff Burr before this movie and I hadn’t heard of any of the actors either. This movie isn’t like Platoon or Apocalypse Now and you won’t be seeing any large military battles between the American and the Germans etc.. There is only one small battle near the end of the movie but I won’t give more details so I don’t ruin the movie. The movie was interesting but nothing spectacular.

Monitor Swap

Posted by Mark

sony g520

Two years ago I purchased two PowerMacs and two 21inch Sony Monitors from my previous agency. I gave the newer Quicksilver PowerMac to my brother and I kept the older Graphite PowerMac for myself. When it came to the monitors, I gave the older Sony G500 to my brother and kept the newer G520 for myself. Come back to the present day, my Sony monitor is fucked. There are a couple of white horizontal lines that show up on dark areas of an image which makes things really annoying, plus there was a sharpness issue, I couldn’t read small type on websites anymore and especially if they were grey. When my brother moved to Lebanon for university he kept his Sony monitor at my parents place, so I decided to go get it and try it on my Mac to see if it was any better. Wow what a difference, after installing my brothers monitor I realized how fucked mine was. The colors are more vibrant now, the text is wayyy sharper and when there is a dark image on the screen I don’t see any horizontal lines! I can’t believe I spent all this time working with such a messed up screen. I feel like my Mac is reborn again, cool shit.
