What happened to FIREFOX?

Posted: July 31, 2007 in mi vida loca

Help! Am I the only one suffering at the moment. I feel so lost as I can’t use my Firefox browser. I’ve been recieving dumb and threatening messages which sounds like this “USE INTERNET EXPLORER YOU DOPE, I DNT HATE MOZILLA BUT USE IE OR ELSE”!

So, at the moment I’m using my IE browser, but my bookmark is not up-to-date! Drats.

Someone, please tell me what on Earth happened?

It’s boiling hot out there!

Well, it definitely is in the F1 world. Not only on the tracks but off track too. Not only between Massa & Alonso but a much more controversial issue between two established F1 teams, Ferrari & McLaren.

The McLaren-Ferrari Saga aka F1 Spy scandal aka Stepneygate, is just getting hotter and hotter especially after team McLaren escaped penalties due to lack of evidence. The Prancing Horse must be red with fury after hearing the outcome and I believe will be working night and day to find proof of stolen data being used by the silver arrows.

It is claimed that the team in red was sabotaged in one of their European races. Is there a possibility that the 3-pointed star team has been sabotaged as well? Could it be due to ones dissatisfaction with his employer let him to such act? It has been said that both of the accused wanted to use the information once they leave for a new team. Therefore, no evidence can be found on the McLaren race car.

I believe that the guilty should be punished, and I personally hope Ron Dennis’s team is intelligent enough not to steal and use the Ferrari data. It would be the dumbest and lowest act on Earth to be made by humankind. No matter how many times the red team have used sly tactics to win races and championship. It is an act not to follow! I pray to God, McLaren is honest enough to win races fairly no matter what Massa claims about Alonso’s driving style at the last European GP ;-p

Ironic, isn’t it? Weren’t the prancing horses once were the fave’s of Bernie E? Schumi isn’t there any longer, so the table’s turned. Now they’re claiming that McLaren is in favor. Hmmmm … all because of Hamilton, I guess. The future British World Champion, the first black F1 driver to win the Driver’s Championship etc … Whatever!

**************************************

In the football world, things are heating up between Liverpool and Manure over the availability of Gabriel Heinze. Who will end up the winner in this transfer talk? This team is accusing that team of conducting illegal talks, the latter denies of such claims. We will just have to wait and see after Heinze decided to take legal advice over his exit from Old Trafford. Obviously, the red devil will fight tooth and nail to stop the Argentinian defender from going to the Kop.

 

See any similarities between these sporting teams? Ferrari = Red Devils vs McLaren = LFC

Transformer – the movie

Posted: July 22, 2007 in mi vida loca

It’s true enough, Harry Potter Mania has hit the town, long queues for movie tickets and the latest book & the final edition to hit the stores world wide (not here, though! Something to do with the cut price!). However, I’m not joining the bandwagon. Am not crazy enough to stay up all day to grab the book. I have no idea why! Maybe, I am just one of the very few who doesn’t go with the flow.

Anyways, instead of catching the latest HP movie, my cuz & I decided to watch Transformers. She thought this was a good time as the hype/raves would have died down. Unfortunately, we were dead wrong, there were a roomful of cinema goers of the same wavelength! We were lucky enough to get the LAST 2 seats and thankful enough not to be placed in the FRONT row.

It took me a while to go down memory lane and dig down deep and try to recollect the one time popular cartoon of the same name. It didn’t take long for me to recognize the logo, but the given names of the robots is a difficult task to do! I was still in a blurry mode half way through the movie as I didn’t do my homework at all.

My general comments: I’d recommend the movie to all (not!).  Thank God my ticket was paid for so I wouldn’t feel any regrets after sitting for 2 hrs and a half in the movie theater. I guess I was hugely disappointed because it was nothing like the cartoon series.

It was no surprise that the US army has a base on Arab soil. Couldn’t they choose another venue? When they were attacked by the then unknown Megatrons, they immediately assumed that it was the works of either the N. Koreans, Russian, China @ Iran. (???) They thought wrong, huh! Plus some of the soldiers were invincible. No matter how heavy the attack is on them, they manage to escape death. I had to remind myself, it’s a movie. There will always be a hero to save the world, no matter how destructive it may be. Remember Armageddon?

The trip to Spain & Morocco will hopefully be fulfilled in early December this year. Down payment have been made today and the rest some time later. I’ve been itching to visit Al-Hambra for some time now. So, I hope nothing will come in my way.

Proposed Itinerary

  • Madrid – City tour of Madrid, Royal Palace & Military Museum.
  • Toledo – City tour of Toledo visits Santo Tome Church and Synagogua Transito.
  • Cordoba – Mezquita
  • Granada – City tour of Granada & Al-Hambra
  • Torremolinos @ Benalmedina
  • Algeciras
  • Tangiers
  • Fez
  • Marrakech
  • Casablanca

What makes it even sweeter is that we will be spending a night in Cairo. Yes, Cairo. I miss the desserts, this time I’ll make sure I’ll bring back boxes and boxes of halva.

Another thing which I had missed was visiting the American Univeristy in Cairo and the Egyptian Museum located at Tahrir Square

So, these two places will be in my list of MUST go places.
