[Events] Safat Home Ramadan Extravaganza

July 22, 2012  |  Events

A few days ago I was invited by the Social Media Team of Safat Home to attend their Ramadan Extravaganza event and first Social Media event ever, in which they announced their special offers for the Ramadan Season. The event took place last Wednesday July 18th at their newly opened Safat Home store located right across the street from Abyat, across from Al Tilal Complex.

The place was quite spacious, well designed and well organized.  Simply put, you can find your way around without the need to require extra help.  Upon arrival the gathering was set at the Costa Coffee Shop which is located inside the store.  We were introduced to the Social Media Team from Safat Home and were given a glimpse as to what the Ramadan Extravaganza will include.

[Shout Outs] WHITExpo Ramadan 2012

July 21, 2012  |  Shout Outs, Social Media

If you are one of those people who enjoys going to different expos and browsing around well you have a chance to do so during the holy month of Ramadan.  WHITExpo will officially be opened on the 29th of July until the 31st of July and this year it is all about “Going Green”, supporting recycling, and providing an environmental approach to our society.

Their symbol this year will be “The Make a Wish” tree which will be centralized in the hall and carry the wishes of the orphans, hopefully one of you attending will be able to put a smile on those orphans faces and make their wish come true. Nevertheless, this will be an interesting event to check out so don’t hesitate to stop by.

Thanks Shaikha!

More Plagiarism More Heartache

July 20, 2012  |  Plagiarism, Rants

The Ramadan TV List you saw on my blog yesterday and today took literally 8 hours and more to complete.  I spent my entire weekend on it (I have Thursday – Friday weekends) and little did I know that idiots will still crop out my watermark and remove my name from it.

Both were shown to me on twitter, I will not give them the time of day nor will I mention who they are but this is insane.  I am exhausted beyond any idea and I have been staring at a computer for the past God knows how many hours and two people come here with the coldest heart ever, crop out my stuff and slap on their “watermark” bah fudge it! (fudge because it’s Ramadan and God knows who might be reading it when they are fasting)!

I am just upset that this is happening and that Kuwaitis in general have a lack of education in the consequences of “plagiarism”, idiots do not steal other people’s work no matter where you found it and refer to it as yours! The internet may be free to search but everyone shares their work there to help better the place not to make it worse!

Karma will get them.

End of rant.

[Ramadan TV] Timings of “Omar”

July 20, 2012  |  Ramadan TV

UPDATE: So The show airs at 10 PM on MBC 1 and there is a rerun at 3AM (Thanks Swera) And the show also airs on Qatar TV at 10PM without any commercials (I’m not sure but someone told me that on Twitter and I can’t seem to find their User)

So MBC has finally annouced the timings of the show “Omar” and therefore instead of updating the list once more today I will leave the timings here, the update will come when I find out more about the rerun timings.

“Omar” now airs on MBC 1 at 10:00 PM (KWT Time) (a.k.a. GMT +3)

Also OSN Mosalsalat and OSN Mosalsalat HD+ were renamed to Series and Series +4 thanks to commenter Jack Al Mazeedi on BananaQ8′s Blog.

Again I am only human so mistakes can always happen.

Proud Dreamhoster for 5 Years

July 20, 2012  |  Deals, Techie

Back in January 2007 I officially started my move from a previous domain (Rubduckie.com) to my current one (Couchavenue.com) and with that I started using a new hosting service, Dreamhost, because the one I was with previously got so annoying.  At the time I benefited from some amazing coupons that allowed me to get a huge discount on the one year subscription and now I figured many of you out there will probably want to shift from a free website to buying your own hosting and domain. The option I recommend to everyone is “Dreamhost” they’re great, they’re quick to answer your questions, and they offer you an insane amount of space and bandwidth as well.

 

They have an awesome offer out right now in which every referred customer I send their way, and by referral all you need to do is click on the links in this post and sign up that way they’ll know you came from my side, I will get some cash back and for every customer you send to them I will get $5, this offer is valid until September 17th and well when you become a customer of theirs you too can make the same amount of cash back. Not only that but because I have created my own PROMO code I now can offer you a discount to their annual subscription!

  • To subscribe to Dreamhost with a 1 year plan instead of paying 119.40$, I have given you an almost 15% discount in which you pay only 100$.
  • To subscribe to Dreamhost with a 2 year plan instead of paying 214.80$, I have given you an almost 15$ discount as well in which you pay 182$.
All you have to do is enter this PROMO CODE: [COUCHAVENUE12]

So what are you waiting for? Want your own domain name and hosting service, sign up with Dreamhost!
