I am up. Dont recall ever getting up this early in a long time…

Got back from the protest around 30 minutes ago and already uploading the pictures. Will offer link to the photoset once its done.
Kuwaiti Women Solidarity Protest. These aren’t my pictures my friend was using my digital mine will be up in a couple days (slide film)

It was a great protest I regret leaving now but I needed to get back to work. My Mom is now at the Parliament for the meeting so thats great.

They were lots of young faces there and very excited to be part of the movement. One thing that got to me was a lot of them were shouting slogans in English and Arabic. You can tell this was a very multicultural crowd and wanting change. I saw friends and family there which was great.

I didn’t hold any poster cause I was so busy running around taking pictures. I was wearing blue and believe that by being there and documenting it for people is good for the cause.

I have more pictures from my regular film cameras, cialis sale but they are slide and will take about a day to develop and stuff, but once I get them rest assured they will be on line as well.

Saw this on SaudiJeans about memorizing telephone numbers. It strengthens my earlier post on the future of domain names because of IDN and IPV6.

People have their own way of remembering numbers on their address book via nicknames or strange characters in the contacts info, cheap so why can’t we do that with domain names.

Like my blog for example. Its officially www.kuwaitblogs.com/users/nibaq/
But someone could have it in their personal DNS as nibaqsblogs.com or why even use .com and just have it as saviormachine.blog, anesthetist or something thats tagged based like nibaq.blogs.kuwait.

Thats another idea, a tag based dns system that is linked to your del.icio.us bookmarks.

I think ICANN will be dead in less than 2 years after the release of IPV6.

So saw some options that seem better and more practical than the Timbuk2 and also read some sites complaining that the original owners of the company left and most of the manufacturing is in China so its not the same quality that was before.

And luckily found some pretty amazing messenger bag companies.

I like this company ReLoad I think I will be getting a bag from these guys the prices are reasonable and really look great. I am eying their Civilian model. It is well built has good pockets and straps, buy more about then there is the extra options that I can add to it. Which I really want and need. I also kind of torn for the Deluxe model it just looks rugged, but I think it too big for what I need.

For just size wise I am liking Cocotte. It is Canadian company from Montreal and really have a nice bag called Alfredo the dimensions of this bag are kinda of weird seems to narrow for my liking, but pictures of the way it open up to show off that a large size, and seems very tempting. Sadly there is no price available on their website or how to order it except from retail shops in Montreal.

Here is a pretty cool Hungarian company called Bagaboo they also offer customization, yet their bag sizes I think are a bit to big. Their smallest is 21″ wide. I am looking for a bag that is around 16″-19″ wide.

One company that is meeting my size requirements is Bailey Works these guys have this really great bag called 40 1K its a toned down version of their Courier 253 bag yet they are no pictures of what the bag looks inside, in terms of zippers and pockets. Price wise they are great.

Now for the hard core bag. Pac Designs make one mean bag, their slogan is “Built for Abuse, Engineered for Riding”. These guys don’t mess around at all and I am in love with their Deluxe bag. This thing is a menace has everything in terms of pockets and zippers but short in my width requirements but I can deal with that. It also has a pretty tough price around it but you get what you pay for. If I do go for these guys I most likely will get their simpler one calledStreet Scene. It has less options but still built to their standards and I dont think I would really use all those biking options.

Push the Envelope with their Metro bag it is the right size and look how practical it is with the pockets and easily it gets filled up.

What do you guys think? Which bag makes you drool the most?

Kuwaiti Women Solidarity Protest

Oh and people who uploaded to Flickr please tag your pictures with kwsp050307 so we can share and find them easier.
With talk in the comments and posts of MsBaker and in Expat and in many othersabout why weren’t there more people and especially women at the protest on Monday. I have my own thoughts on this matter.

First off people had other responsibilities being there at 8 is tough for people who have work and other stuff they need to do. I knew a good number of people who I thought would be the first ones there, hygiene capsule but didn’t show up due to them having to go to work or some other prior commitments.

I also put blame to the SMS that was sent around, visit this site practitioner it didn’t give us any agenda for the protest. It just said be there at 8. It wasn’t till the next day that I learned there was going to be a Parliament meeting that day. Then there was the question of what was going to happen when I got there. I had no idea that we were going to try to get in to the meeting, purchase and protest right at the door once the MPs started to arrive. This information slowly tickled down to me at the protest.

Also we didn’t have any idea when it was going to end. I think if more people had some idea for set hours they would have ditched work for 2 hours protested and gone back to wok without need to take a full day off and just reorganized their work schedule for that day.

One thing I noticed was there wasn’t many women in their 30-40s at the protest. It was all under 30 mostly and especially under 20 from what I saw. I overhead a conversation from 2 women in their 30-40s and they were there in 1996 for the last protest. They were excited for the turn out and I could tell from their voice that they dont feel this is their fight anymore. They let that part of them go and focusing on their careers and lives now.

So whats the way to get the women their rights and votes?

Start from the ground up, get those young girls who were there to get organized and united. These are the ones that should have the right to vote when they turn 21. They need to start lobbying hard to the MPs, getting petitions signed from those MPs’ voters demanding for that right.

Have planned events, to talk about the situation and really bring it out in the open. I dont think there has been a debate between the pro and anti crowds. I think that would be a great thing. Also give protests a good week notice so people can arrange their schedule. I really like Jewaira’s idea of getting a bus its a good way to gather mass crowds easily and quickly. One recent example is that Hizbollah protest in Lebanon all those people you would think they were from Lebanon but really just bussed in from Syria.

Today was spent running around getting my insurance and car thing setup so they can start work on it and fix it. Its going to take forever by the looks of it. I got the paperwork from the garage and then was on my way to the insurance company in Kuwait City so open a file with them when I got an sms asking for my blood type.

So I dropped what I Was doing and headed to the blood bank to donate. The blood bank hasn’t changed I think since last time I was there on a school trip. They really let that place go. What annoyed me the most was the watches there. They all had the wrong time, search I asked a nurse why is that. She said they been broken for 2 years. How the hell can you live with a broken watch in your office for 2 years? Talk about not caring about your work envoirnment.

Giving blood was easy, more about it was really simple I was given a questionaire in Arabic and I got really confused when they were giving the disease names translated to Arabic. They should have put them in parenthese in English so people could make sense from them. One question that was funny if I spent during 1980-1996 time that equaled or more than 3 months in England. I dont know of any Kuwaiti that didn’t spend time during that period that equaled ore more than 3 years. Everyone was in England back then. I always heard stories back in the 80s how this one kid used to go there every week to give blood cause they would give you juice and 20kd, and he saved up all those 20kds to buy a bike. Loves those urban legends.

I will defienetaly do it again in 3 months. I keep hearing about how bad blood shortages get and blood donated only lasts for a month before they have to throw it away and there is always people needing it. I can tell you its a really simple and takes no more than 30 minutes to do and you will be saving someones life

Here is a link to picture of the needle going in, and one with the blood pumping.

I got my insurance stuff done, now its all between teh garage and them to discuss it. I will return to insurance guys on Sunday to see about my rental car til my car gets fixed. It will be a week then since the accident and still my car hasn’t been touched. It is really disheartening to know I will be waiting, I miss her.
