The problem:

You are on a shared hosting. Your host upgrades MySQL. Your drupal 4.7 installation is boom broken!

The reason:

Drupal 4.7 sets the database connection to utf8 if you are running MySQL 4.1+

APC Wireless day 1

Submitted by msameer on Thu, 13/07/2006 - 3:22am

OK, So to continue the last part. We spent the 12 hours in Istanbul in the Airport Hotel. They gave us a room for free. The flight to Casablanka was really boring. 5 hours is too long especially when it was delayed and the end result was a 2 hours late departure.

The reverse path to Morocco.

First, I'd like to say that it's stupid to fly from Cairo to Istanbul and then to Casablanca. But this is the only flight I found.

OK, The fucken guy in Cairo airport announced that it's the last call for the flight, The flight was supposed to depart at 0345 but the announcement was at 0240 so we (Me and Diaa) had to leave the smoking area and discover the trick afterwards,


To Morocco...
