Long Story Short: Monday morning… Starbucks… Decided to read a magazine. Rant on. Apparently the people behind the Student Talk magazine don’t grasp the concept behind jokes. I was reading a ‘joke’ about why men lie; and one of the characters was ‘Lord’. I guess that was a bit blasphemous for their sakes… so they […]


I uploaded a bunch of new pictures to my flickr account; you can find them in the D50 set. Click here or visit pictures in my menu.  (This post was created so people wouldn’t have to see the post about shrimpy when they first visit the site)

Internet companies in Kuwait are not on the same level in terms of the speed offered for the price you pay. 256k at one ISP is a different speed with another ISP. Therefore, I am compiling a graph of real speeds and cost in Kuwait. If you are subscribed to DSL in Kuwait, I would […]


I had a chance to stop by the Red Bull 25 Hour Go-Cart race yesterday. Overall, the event was not as organized as the previous year. Some points for next year, if anyone in charge is reading: 1. Get clean gas, as teams found sand in some of the gas gallons. If sand was put […]
