What I want for Christmas

Post by Mark

A HPI Baja 5B… [YouTube]

Update: I called Extreme Hobbies, they HPI Baja dealers to see how much they would sell me the buggy but they ended up selling their last piece today. Jassim from Blushberry even passed by to get one but they told him we’ve got to wait till they get a new shipment next month. Sucks.

Fire at Marina Waves

Post by Mark

I just heard fire engines pass by awhile ago and I am guessing they were heading to Marina Waves. I have no idea yet what caught fire or what started it but judging by the pictures it looks like the skateboard park.

Thanks Khalid!

Update: It was the skate park that caught fire and according to the owner it was arson.

Aïshti and Aïzone now open

Post by Mark

The Lebanese luxury chains Aïshti and Aïzone have opened up at the Avenues. They’re the equivalent of Villa Moda in Lebanon carrying mostly the same brands which is why I was curious to pass by the Avenues one. I was in a rush so I had a quick walk through and noticed 80% of the store space is dedicated to woman with the rest for men. Here is the link to the Aïshti website [Link]

New Qualitynet block page, now with cats!

Post by Mark

Qualitynet have updated their block page so if you go to say you will get the following message:

And this URL:

Now if you change the last number from 0 to say 1 you get a different message for example go to:
You will notice a message added which is “Category: Pornography”

If you replace it with a 2 you get:
Category: Gambling

Got it? Well this is where it gets interesting, if you replace that number with anything from 4 and up you get LOLCATS!

For example I replaced it with 19:

And I got:

An ISP with a sense of humor, pretty cool.

Thanks larogue for discovering this

Update: It no longer works, Qualitynet removed the lolcats :(

Kuwait Mens World Open Squash Championships 2009

Post by Mark

Since we don’t get that many world class sport events here in Kuwait I would think an event like this deserves a bit more publicity…

The Kuwait Men’s World Open will be staged from the 1st to 7th November 2009 and will boast a record prize fund of US$277,500.

The championship is the climax of a three year agreement with the Professional Squash Association (PSA) which has already seen the successful staging of Super Series Platinum events in 2007 and 2008.

As well as offering the largest prize money of any World Open, the championship will also include spectacular opening and closing ceremonies as well as an Official Championship Gala Dinner.

The championships will bring together all of the world’s leading players from the PSA World Tour. World No.1 Karim Darwish of Egypt will head a star-studded field including compatriots Ramy Ashour and Amr Shabana, Gregory Gaultier and Thierry Lincou from France, Australia’s former World Open Champion David Palmer and England’s British Champion Nick Matthew.

The quarter-finals, semi finals and finals will be played on a dedicated court being built on Green Island which sounds cool considering the weather is great at the moment. For more information visit the official website [Here]

Thanks Akbar!
