Gaza is burning

While the Arabs are still arguing if Hamas has the right to resist the Israeli occupation or not, Ghaza is burning.

This is nothing less than a mass murder… no it’s not war.

… then I got suspended!

Once again my website went down… This time it was because my web host thought I am abusing their service through videos.plus961.com (now inactive)… so they suspended my account!

Anyway, here I am, online again. و لن يستطيعوا إسكات الصوت الحرّ، لول

So I was down yesterday…

Due to a problem with my host, the website was down for more than 8 hours yesterday! Here’s the e-mail they sent me:

Good day Rami,

We have received the report from our technical team and they have started doing the work after proposing a solution.
The issue found on your server is RAID array degradation (triggered by the traffic spikes earlier and high data read/write request). Our team had replaced the server’s HDD with new hard disk drive and already started to rebuild the array which may take up to 3 hours to complete.
We ask for your patience and understanding.
This advisory has been issued for transparency and to keep you abreast with the events.
Thank you very much.

The Management

W heik! Shu 3andkon akhbar?

I saw Ziad Baroud!

I was driving near Concord (Verdun) around midnight on the second day of Eid when I was surprised to see the minister Ziad Baroud helping the internal security forces at one of their checkpoints! I quickly grabbed the camera and took this photo.

It’s good to know there are still some humble people out there…

Sukleen!!!

On my way back home from work everyday I pass by Roadster Achrafiyyeh. There, and on each single day I encounter a Sukleen truck collecting trash from the containers and causing a massive traffic jam.

Will the guys in charge at Sukleen ever think of chaning the schedule for trash collection? Ya3neh n7akalna nlemm zbeileh il sei3a 6:30 3ashiyyeh!!!
