Post by Mark

    the problem is not with the elections, it’s the greedy newspapers who have no respect for their readers.

  9. Stafa says:

    well, it is elections you know, this happens when?! every coupla years for one edition. the funny thing is that the other day i opened my house gate and was like ‘funny if i find them giving out dvds and shit from paralment members’ and what do I step on?! an actual DVD for Jamal Al-Omar was it?! looked at it and was like ‘my god..ur even following me 2 my house?!’ and kicked it away, its over anyway, we passed 8 pm and its all done, so its useless ranting about it anymore…its over! :)

  13. hehe…too funny. I’d like to know some of the financial numbers behind running an issue like that..Do we have anyone with such access?

  14. unknown says:

    wow, newspaper must wait for election every 4 years for these, how much the advertisement cost anyway?

  15. papaya says:

    this year is gold for the newspapers, first sheik jaber death and obituaries , then congrats for the new emir and crown prince and prime minister , then the election and we still in the middle of the year , there are still 6 months to go , if something major will happen we will see more ads and so :)

    I would have been angry to buy a paper and have that be it, I would have went back to the dikan and handed the hindi back the paper and asked for my 150 fils back.

  17. holla says:

    i think i just won like 100KD. i bet that no women would make it into parliment. this is too easy.

  18. unknown says:

    thanks god no woman get into parliament, kuwaiti women are suck and the don’t deserve their rights

  19. holla says:

    unknown kuwaiti women suck just as much as the men do so it’s not like this is such a good a thing that non of them made it. it just makes kuwait look more like a shithole to the world than it already is.

    damn i predicted this, i must either be really smart or kuwait must suck really bad. hehehe i guess it’s both.

  20. bikeshed says:

    uhhh, elections with women are cool…

    anyway, have you seen the trailer for the new transformers movie?

    Hey Mark, this is Ramsey, your brothers friend.

    I have a quick unrelated question I was hoping you’d help me with.

    We have a 512kb DSL connection from Fast Telco in Kuwait, however, I have not been able to download torrents—specifically torrents. Limewire works fine, as well as other downloads, but torrents will not work whatsoever, regardless of client.

    When I open a torrent, it just doesn’t download. It basically keeps “searching” for seeds as it appears. I tried opening my ports and changing my IP but nothing seems to work.

    I’m asking you because I know you have DSL connection, and you might know what to do. I sure as hell have tried everything i’ve got, and nothings been successful.

    Any thoughts?

  22. Mark says:

    i dont know but u could post in the forum and see if anyone else can help
