I've been better without Leopard

If you're using OS X 10.5 Leopard without its new benefits such as Time Machine or Spaces you'll soon realize that it's nothing but a refurbished 10.4 Tiger with some minor touch ups.

Ever since I upgraded to OS X 10.5 my PowerBook G4 has been acting up. Some of the things I've noticed...

  • Takes longer time to boot up, applications launch time, Web browsers and Flash animations became slow too.
  • Disk-Utility permission repair function lags taking up to 20 minutes to repair disk permissions where it used to take less than a minute in OS X 10.4 Tiger.
  • PPC-based applications tend to crash more often.
  • Setting up mobile to computer bluetooth connection is harder than it used to be though its nice to use its FTP browser. [link]

And another thing I've noticed, RSS feeds date is fixed to January 1, 2001! [link]

Even with all these problems my Mac still shines and can run for two more years without any trouble, hopefully.


Yet another thing to add to the list above... My RSS feeds screensaver died. Whenever I run it my Mac crashes. WTH is up with Leopard & PPC? :/

The 3gaidi who got on my F-ing nerves

Being a P.E. teacher in a public school in Kuwait means that I'm responsible of school tidiness and discipline. My P.E. colleagues and I do our best to maintain order within school walls, but when sh!t happens out of school it's up to us whether to take part or not.

Yesterday I went out of work to see a herd of 3agad piling up outside the school. I overlooked the situation, got in my car and as I was driving away I saw them taking action fighting like F-ing hyenas hitting and running so they don't get their @$$ kicked.

I spotted a couple of my 6th grade students so, all in good will, I parked and went to cut the cr@p off so my students won't get hurt. I held one of my students and dragged him back inside the school when out of nowhere a 3gaidi who thinks he's old enough to step up against me started to shout and curse at me to leave his brother alone. I ignored the b@stard and took his brother inside but he insisted and he held my hand telling me to let go of his brother. I refused and dragged his brother to the admins when two of my colleagues also interfered to break up the fight and they recognized the b@stard who turned out to be a student at 9th grade in our school so they dragged him in as well while he kept shouting and cursing. Both of them got suspended temporary and the older one got zero grades in this month's exams for insulting me and my colleagues.

Today I went to work to find him waiting for me outside the school. He came close and asked me to forgive him and try to help him preventing the admins verdict. I told him "If you're sorry about what you did and you really want to apologize you should have apologized yesterday." He tried and tried to convince me that he's sorry about what he said and did to me to no avail but I kept on refusing because he's one of those disrespectful 3agad who doesn't deserve a chance. I turned my back on him with a grin up my face.

Call me mean, call me racist, call me whatever you want, but that kind of people don't deserve respect therefore, even if this will put his future to waste, I'll never accept his apology.

Guessing Game

I know I've been lazy lately.
I promise I'll make it up to my regulars.

Now can you guess what this is?

Hint(s): They come in various colors.
You buy them and throw them.

Yes, you can tell how bored I am.

This is what you're looking at...

I know I know, it was hard to guess. And sure, go ahead and add me to your losers list... :P

My very special collectible... cinema tickets. I have been collecting them since my early days in high school. Somehow I have lost the first set (1997~2001) but that didn't stop me from continuing.

Looking at them makes me realize how life passes by so damn fast; knowing that I've been doing this for the past ten years makes me wonder about a lot of stuff. :/
