[Ramadan TV] 2012 List is Here

July 19, 2012  |  Ramadan TV

I have slaved since the early hours of the morning for the below list and seriously it’s not as easy as one might think.  I have been M.I.A. on Instagram, Twitter, and everything else because dealing with timings and typing and designing is not as simple as it looks.  But this is what I have come up with.  I have searched online forums, online websites, network websites, turned the different rocks and found the below timings.

The timings are subjective to changes since networks do make some last minute changes before Ramadan shows start.  Tonight marks the first night of Ramadan therefore the first TV show which will air is:

“Share3 90″ on Kuwait TV at 00:30 KWT

If you want to get a heads start look below and you might find the show you follow.  I have compiled all Khaleeji shows except some which I might not be interested in watching and there were no timings whatsoever for them.  And I added this year a “Genre” category which labels whether the show is Khaleeji, Arabic, or Cartoon.  Arabic shows were added to the list.

Nobody’s Perfect, But I’m Perfect for Me

July 16, 2012  |  Deep Thoughts

Everyone out there sits and judges people based on how they look, how they dress, how they act, or even just how they breathe.  Some might say that a person is perfect whereas they don’t even know what that person is going through.  There is a saying out there “Don’t just a book by its cover” which applies perfectly in this life.

Seriously, don’t just a person by how they appear.  I may sit there with you laughing, having the time of my life but deep down inside I may be crumbling and falling apart.  The main aim to this post is that I have always put myself down, and I think in a way I still put myself down.  A million and one thoughts go through my head everyday and each and every one of them is worse than the other.

[TV]Game of Thrones Premiere Date & Cast

July 15, 2012  |  TV

The International Comic Convention took place this past weekend in San Diego and featured a number of different panels but one of the most important ones happened to be the “Game of Thrones” panel in which we were introduced to a “Meet the new cast” YouTube video that highlights the newest cast members for Season 3. Not to mention the announcement of when the next season will premiere.

The new additions to the cast included:

  • Dianna Rigg as Lady Olenna Tyrell “The Queen of Thorns” [Margaery Tyrell’s Grandmother]
  • Mackenzie Crook as the Wildling Raider Orell [Skin Changer]
  • Clive Russell as Bryndon “The Blackfish” Tully [Lady Catelyn Stark’s Uncle]
  • Nathalie Emmanuel as Missandei [A slave freed by Daenerys (Khaleesi)]
  • Kerry Ingram as Shireen Baratheon [Stannis’ daughter]
  • Thomas Brodie – Sangster as Jojen Reed [Both Jojen and his sister help Bran in his journey]
  • Ellie Kendrick as Meera Reed [Along with her brother Jojen they help Bran in his journey]
  • Richard Dormer as Beric Dondarrion [Leader of the Brotherhood without Banners]
  • Paul Kaye as Thoros of Myr [Red Lord Priest and Member of the Brotherhood, Beric’s friend]
Other cast members not featured in the video above:
  • Kristofer Hivju as Tormund Giantsbane [Wildling warrior and chief lieutenant of Mance Rayder]
  • Tara Fitzgerald as Selyse Baratheon [Wife of Stannis Baratheon]
  • Tobias Menzies as Edmure Tully [Younger brother of Catelyn Stark]
  • Anton Lesser as Qyburn [Former maester of the Citadel]

The creme de la creme of the panel was the announcement that next year March 31st 2013 will be the premiere date of season 3 for “Game of Thrones”.  I personally can’t wait and I’m on the edge of my seat already, but I do hope that it does an insanely better job than this year as there were some misses in episodes that aired this year.

The Ramadan 2012 List is Coming

July 15, 2012  |  Ramadan TV

Ever since I put up last year’sRamadan TV Show List” I have been bombarded with questions regarding this year’s list.  I even had a colleague of mine at work tell me that many people are depending on my list, people whom I don’t even know hehe it appears to be that the list has gotten so popular I felt an insane amount of pressure on my head to produce a great one. So this year I am planning on preparing one (don’t worry won’t leave you hanging) the only problem is that the networks have not released their timings yet.

The basis of the list is prepared and all I need to do is revise the names of the shows if there were any last minute changes and add the timings.  The worst thing is when networks change their timings all of a sudden so I’m guessing that on Day 1 there will be at least 2 versions of the list.

So tell me, are you one of the people who is anxiously waiting for the list?  If so, winter is coming, oops I mean the list is coming! :P

P.S. Due to the hard work and insane effort I am putting into this, I really do hope that you guys would give me credit if you were to use the list on your respective blogs.

[Tech Sun] When Chaos Ensues in PC World

July 15, 2012  |  Tech Sun

This week’s edition of Technology Sunday from Al Watan Daily features a lot of stories about breaches of security and malfunctions to PCs (if you had a Mac you wouldn’t be experiencing those :P Hahaha) Anyways, one of the major stories happened when a Symantec (otherwise known as the company that produces Norton Anti-virus) released an anti-virus that basically sent Windows machines crashing.  Symantec disclosed the problem on their website stating that an “update to their widely used Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1 and Norton anti-virus software for businesses caused some PCs running Windows XP software to crash repeatedly, showing what is known as the ‘blue screen of death.'” The problem right now happens to be that so far 300 corporate customers have been affected and 60 consumer customers, and the fact that the removal process was time consuming customers requested compensation for the time wasted.  All in all, it wasn’t a good week for Norton’s people.

  The chaos does not stop here, in fact it goes on with the Yahoo breach, in which more than 400,000 Yahoo usernames and passwords were stolen and published online putting everyones websites and emails at risk.  This happened after hackers exploited a vulnerability in Yahoo’s computer systems.  In short it was not a good week for Yahoo as well.  And the fun fact in this story is that the five most popular passwords in leaked list were: “123456”, “password”, “welcome”, and “ninja”, according to an analysis made.  Seriously when are you going to learn at least make the password more complicated like “P@ssw0rd”.
