52 Hours

Since coming back from work on Thursday I haven’t really left the house except for a few things that needed to get done, and some work on Friday morning. Overall there was no reason to leave the house, the weather has been very strange the past week. It has been and getting dustier at different times of the day, I wonder when this is going to change. Even if its hot I wanted to go riding over the weekend but it was still damn dusty. The heat isn’t the problem, the main problem is that dust, it turns the road into a slip and slide situation. I just hope we are done with all this dust, I’m looking forward to a change. Over the weekend I just caught up with my shows, watched a lot of anime, and was reading a good book.

I just can’t seem to get enough of it.

Review: School Rumble

Plot Summary
: Tsukamoto Tenma is an ordinary 2nd year high school student who has fallen in love with one of her classmates, Karasuma Ooji. However, currently she is unable to confess her feelings to him. To make things worse, she found out that Karasuma is transferring to another school in a year. On the other hand, Tenma’s other classmate, Harima Kenji (who is a delinquent) is also in love with Tenma. Not being able to confess his feelings, Harima gets depressed day by day.

There is nothing more entertaining then a very well made story, and the story in this anime is excellent. So many funny characters, and all of them revolve around Tenma. There is a depth of character that you find with all the stories that you go through. There is a love triangle (explained here) that nobody seems to be able to figure out within the group of friends, and then there are all the great fights that is going on. I can’t seem to get enough of these hilarious fights, they start for one reason and by the time they are all done they just can’t remember why they started fighting. So much entertainment in a short anime.

Grandizer in Kuwait

There is something that I love about this picture. It is a mix of feelings when I see this picture, I love Grandizer and I love this image with Kuwait. I like this shot so much I just had to put it up, this is the original Grandizer which brings back memories. The flickr account has some more cool shots.

Slight Power Outage

It was just one of those days, called in sick to work was feeling a little bit under the weather. I went back to sleep and woke up around 10:40 am. My work phone wouldn’t stop ringing, but I managed to get things done without having to leave bed which was a good thing, felt nauseated and beat up. So as the day was progressing I was feeling better, but getting annoyed with the work phone calls. A little while later things were calm and I switched off my work phone knowing the major stuff was out of the way.

As I was laying in bed I continued watching some Berserk (anime), and Star Trek Enterprise, it was entertaining and relaxing. I was remote desktoping to different PCs to get things done throughout the house without moving too much, my goal was simple to get as much rest as possible. I took a shower around noon and wore a dishdasha which felt relaxing.

By 1:30 pm I headed towards the basement to check on the WHS server and a few other things. 5 minutes down there and all the power went out, I thought I did something, I checked the circuit breaker and everything was fine. I went upstairs and there was no power there either, my assumption is that whenever something electrical in the house goes out its because my doing, since I’m always plugging something in and switching things on. Turns out that it wasn’t me this time, I checked with our neighbors and a few other people and it turns out that both Mishref and Bayan were out of power, and the traffic signals weren’t working either. I couldn’t find out what was the reason, but I knew it wasn’t going to be too long. My UPSes kept some of my machines running long enough for me to properly shut them down, they did a really good job.

I picked up my book was reading in the living room for two hours, I was very relaxed at around 3:20 pm the power came back on and I restarted all my machines. My network felt fresh and everything was moving very quickly, I love when all the machines have a fresh start. So I started a few network tasks that would take a couple of days but since they were all fresh it was ok. I still don’t know what was the cause of the power outage.


I have been watching some old school anime, and this just brings back memories. I’m going to go through all the Mazinger series, and I completely forgot about Mazinkaiser until I found it lately. The Mazinger team suffered a great loss to Dr. Hell at the beginning of the series and Kabuto stumbles upon Mazinkaiser who manages to barely save the day. Mazinkaiser is the most powerful of all the robots, but with that power the pilot suffers great pain and if they aren’t ready they could die, so Kabuto has to develop the strength to control that machine. This shows brings back very good memories and I didn’t realize how good the series is for its time, there is some corniness to it but its still a good anime.
