Today was honestly one of the most exuberant (is funnest a word?) days I have experienced since coming back to Kuwait. Now, I am not the type of person that comes back and starts talking about how much I hate Kuwait and I want to return to America. I do not think I could go […]

Fasttelco is up and running, and fast. My first thought was that they piggybacked onto another ISP .. nope, A quick traceroute (the path between you and a website) shows they have their own servers, up and running. The latency (time to send info between you and website) is great (not using microwave sats.). Update: […]

Updates: Rami: Just to update everyone, the fire started around 10:30pm and it hit the whole 6th floor of TEC.

I can not access any of the blogspot sites directly; only through a proxy. Is anybody else having this issue? A part of me suspects that they are thinking of blocking the blogs due to the political tension in Kuwait.

Half my brain is not operating at the moment, and no… It’s not because I had some crazy New Year’s party (I spent mine waiting for my car at Marina Crescent-Valet, bastards took 50+ minutes to get it). I could be feeling this way because of the lack of sleep; in at 5am, out at […]
