What the hell just happened today. Just out of the blue our email stops working , people complain and after six shouts in find out that our mx record is missing. Even odder because there hasn’t been a mx record as I’m on a static ip address but does that mean you still need an mx entry. Updated. Sorted as of 01/09/2009 so Im off to the pub where I wont try iphone blogging again drunk 😀 read on though for how to play my new pub game.. Bird or Brass
As another weekend decends upon me here in Dubai it’s time to start thinking of what to do at the weekend. So at midnight 9pm for you um people, I was in the line to get snow leopard fro my local mac store. Being honest my laptop is aging now and I don’t see a performance boost happening like with windows 7 on the same hardware but it was nice to talk geek stuff in the shop for just a shirt while and learn something well at least from the manager. The staff semes to think I could only have it if I had bought a new mac in the last year. Even the manager said the staff were poor but what do you expect for a monthly wage of two hundred notes…
The unrequited one from my almost local . Damn it why do some women just have that smile and eyes thing? By no means is she the most attractive one there but she’s the one that has “one of those things”. This mean that she HAS To be a psycho, anyone who follows my blogs know that mentalists are attracted to me. Not in the way of attraction as in hello kitty but, ah a fellow mentalist that I can box the ears off. (this is the gribz edit..)
Well after months of waiting it’s finally here, Sega Republic is finally here. From the first impressions it’s big, very big pretty much like most things in Dubai being honest. It was still quite odd that it just opened, no fanfair, no major press release, a major entertainment centre just well… opened. The only way that I knew it was open was by the video boards in the mall that had changed and that was it. The new cinema in the Mall has had massive coverages placed here and there promoting it. Anyways click the link for a gallery and my thoughts on the Sega Republic in Dubai Mall.
The last few weeks have been tossing between being ill and now I’m pretty sure, when visiting the airport, I had all the symptoms of swine flu, down to a tee. Like with all things working away from home, the mind rambles on and you find yourself getting into patterns and routines of things.
Mine starts off with wake up, shower, dressed, down lift, catch taxi, tell taxi driver where to go and how to get there even tho he is in Dubai for years on end, get into the office, eat dinner from a bag (tuna), walk 1/2km up the road to get a taxi to go home, get in a quick swim or nap, out to the mall for a wander or food, back home, tv, sleep and then back to bed. Mundane just to say the least but then last week I had some company over and things just seemed, I dunno… a touch brighter when you have someone about to talk to…
Ack what a few weeks, liver problems, kidney problems and now Im just about sick of being here in some ways, then again what do I have to come back to the UK for. Its like being trapped between the devil and the deep blue see.
Dont get me wrong its nice here but its the same old for me personally, no friends, no family and Im just getting a touch bored of my own company for to talk to. There are only so many places you can walk to on your own, eat on your own and its not like theres a decent bar around here where “someone knows your name” (not quite the cheers reference there I was after)
As I’m sat here now I wait for a phone call from Australia to get them to check over the mail server that’s installed here, when thats done, sign off and one step closer to get away from going into the office everyday as per the norm. The london job im not sure on whats going on with that, less money, not sure about the hours but closer to home (wherever that is)
Right time to skulk off to the server room for a kip, gotta have some advantages here 😀
OO and if anyone has the topless pics of lady gaga, send em over, seems that jennifer aniston topless gets a massive 40 + hits a day still!
