No connectivity.

Submitted by msameer on Tue, 10/07/2007 - 3:17pm

No connectivity since Friday evening. I took all the precautions to ensure my connection will be working in the new place but it seems I'll have to wait until Thursday.

No email or anything. Even worse, I have a FTBFS bug that needs fixing.

Why are all the hotspots I find encrypted ? ;-)

Update: mbar has a free wifi connection but they allow only http and ssh. The more I use ssh tunneling, the more I love ssh and the more I feel proud of FOSS! ;-)

Update2: I'm back online. Just as I thought. I was using the radio outlet which was labeled TV incorrectly!


Finland is ...

Strong sun, dark clouds, blue clear sky, thunder, lightning, green areas. All together at the same time.


Got the keys!

Got the keys for my new apartment in Helsinki... :-)


Egyptian president, no donut for you.

Submitted by msameer on Sun, 10/06/2007 - 5:19pm

Yes, I'm not saying a thank you for anything. Not because you didn't do anything good. You did a lot of good things. One of them is showing me how much I love Egypt especially after being far away. You saved my life by me not having a country to give my life up for if I needed...

Even if you did a lot of real good things, no thank you. It's your job and no, you did not do it.


What's more foolish. Using a pirated OS or using a OS that you don't know what is ?

...
- yeah, but i don't have skype now, i've formatted my laptop and installed OSX :P
...
* is that GNU/Darwin or the official OSX ?
* Darwin needs specific IDE controllers and stuff
- i'm not sure i didn't download it, i took it from a friend. but it types darwin at boot
* then it's darwin I guess
* what's the version number ?
- Mac OSX 10.4.8 , Kernel darwin 8.8.1
* i think it's OSX for x86
* no idea
* so u took your OS from a friend and we don't know exactly what it is!!
* and you are working as a sysadmin ?
* and you are still working as a sysadmin ?
- calm down man, i've asked him and he says that it's official OSX, but i doubt it's darwin
- i dunno exactly
* and you are still working as a sysadmin ?
* I'll publish this on my blog without mentioning names...
- ok , and i'll comment :D


Why is it hard...

Submitted by msameer on Sat, 12/05/2007 - 10:27pm

* 1 month since I quit smoking.
- Do you want to smoke again ? Yes.
- Are you going to smoke again ? No. I hope I can resist more.
* 3 months in Finland.
- Do you have new friends ? No.
- Did you know anyone ? No.

= Why is life that hard ?


Here it goes, no smoking so far...

Submitted by msameer on Sun, 29/04/2007 - 7:57pm

Since the 12th of April 2007, 14:30. No more smoking for me. How ? Why ? Details later!
This is the 2nd announced one and the 3rd actual time.

Got the last GPS unit...

Submitted by msameer on Tue, 10/04/2007 - 6:29pm

The last TomTom one European from Anttila in the Sello shopping center.
Got that for 380 Euros. Not bad I guess.

And I just discovered that I had to buy a few more things and ended up paying 404 Euros! That's a geeky number ;-)

Now let's see if I can know where I'm when I'm in the bus!

Thanks Lazyweb for the suggestions.
