50 cent special and my net upgrade..

the thing is goin' down right now on marina fm and seriously, americano rapper promoting his movie on a kuwaiti radio show?!, my god way to go marina fm!, even though the show is like a top # countdown or whatever and they're shoving some random songs between the intervew but damn, the DJ sounds like he ain't no rookie ya3ni, suttle americano accent and all with some professional questions, if you happen to catch this post right now here's the link to the live stream, uh.. dammn nvm.., i thought they've finished off with the official website reconstruction or whatever ALREADY!, UGH!
(this was at 4:30ish pm)

oh well.., you could probably catch it if you happen to have a stereo around (wich i don't..), thanks a lot now i'm thinking of adding one to the wish list :P hehe..

i upgraded my dsl line and that's how i cought the special while i was on my way back home, i paid 40 kds for my upgrade and i thought that i would get a discount of some sort cause fasttelco 'was' giving out 20% (months ago) for knet and internet renewals.., the chick told me that now they're doing 10 instead of 20 and noo, of course lucky moi got no discount for my "upgrade" renewal cause an upgrade does not count as a renewal request or whatever corporate crap they deal on customers, gahh i hate their totally unprofessional customer treatment but gotta love their network stability, which goes vice-versa for qualitynet and that's why i do fasttelco with the comfort of renewing my subscription online, total ripoff with bad customer treatment but beats qualitynet when it comes to bandwidth (download/upload) rates and total stability, probably that's why they don't give a damn about their inexperienced customer service dudes and their service cost rates, they're too confident and i respect that, but they need a kick in the butt once in a while and that's what i do :P hehe, learned that the hard way.., god rid of their crappy modem and before that, i had a decent harsh argument with their head tech support dude that shut him up, most of his sorry ass claims that the company is spanking new and they don't have enough working force to support everything at the same time, i was like "your god damn MODEMS are 4 years old goddammit!, you should be getting new modems instead keeping us poor guys coming and work you out for some stupid old outdated crap AND YOU MADE US BUY IT instead of just renting the fucker out or like qnet, just sign some insurance paper with some 15 kd fee and just get it over with", i mean i paid 40 kds for a crappy first generation dsl modem that is older than the isp itself, that's how pissed off i was.

i blame the pouring rain for my yacky blogging mood, well at least i had fun bashing 'em cause i couldn't listen to the special while i'm at it :P, hehe.., oh well.., so how are you today?, are you rain friendly?, i know i am, i wish i was at the beach or at the mesanna at souq sharq while it is raining.., so city calm and soul soothing..

This is off-topic but I'm working on a research project about the Kuwait blogs and was wondering if you wouldn't mind taking my survey? Full details are below:


My name is Noor Ali-Hasan and I am a graduate student at the University of Michigan School of Information. As part of my master's thesis project, I am currently conducting a study about bloggers and their social networks. Based on your blog, you have been selected to participate in a short online survey about blogging. To qualify for the survey, you must meet the following qualifications:

* Be at least 18 years of age
* Currently keep a blog
* Have a blog that contains a blogroll and/or allows comments
* Have a blog that is part of the Kuwait Blogs community

Your participation is completely voluntary. The survey should take about ten to thirty minutes to complete. You may access the survey at this address:


All survey data will be kept confidential. The study's findings will be reported in aggregates and will not be used to identify a specific person. If you have any questions about this survey, please email me at nooraz@umich.edu.

Your time and participation is greatly appreciated!

Thank you!
