There are not more archives for this blog, troche its now simply content. It has been bothering me for a long time the whole concept of archives. I just dont like that feeling of the word, to me it means old buried, and forgotten. The internet has changed our view of information and the ability to access it via search engines, socail bookmarks etc. Nothing is forgotten or put a away it is always there ready to be accessed.

This is mostly steming on how I am defining the world.

I see the world in 3 defined groups: content, resources, and rules.

Basically resources is the place which holds/creates/provides the content based rules provided.

Yesterday I think was the longest day for me, disorder I was up early so I can drive to Kuwait City to get my insurance papers so they can start fixing my car and get my rental replacement. Traffic sucked on Istaqlal St. so I decided to take the beach road. That road was nice no traffic it was moving smooth, cialis 40mg the only problem is the traffic lights and the twists and turns, I am sure it took the same time if I stuck to the regular road, but it was a nice day, and I much prefer taking a longer road thats moving than a shorter one that is stop and go.

Got my insurance when I got a call from work, that I need to be in the office to go with some people to some meetings. I had made other work plans that day, but when duty calls. Met the people and started we went to our meetings.

How can I say waste of time in the simpleness sense? The government sucks! These meetings were planned the person who came here has 2 days to hear your problems and fix them! You had faxes, phone calls, you demanded that this person come to meet with you. Then you have to drop everything and leave us to move from office office trying to find someone who is willing to take responsibility for just meeting and talking with us. Then when you have a computer that is broken, and not working its not our fault or our problem. We provided you with a machine and gave you a list of specifications that the computer should have. Then because you can’t fix it, (it just needed a windows reinstall) I have to get you a new computer.

I want that type of deal when I buy a car. Even though I own it and picked it out, I want the dealer to come to my house everyday to clean it, take it for an oil change and if it breaks down due to my negligence the dealer should replace it for me. I swear the government in Kuwait has forgotten that they serve the people and not the other way around. Seriously I really believe that why things like water and electricity are still working is that companies that deal with the government are making sure things are maintained and in order so they still get the purchase order later. If it wasn’t for business bending backwards we’d be having chaos.

So once that waste of time was done, we went to have lunch. That was peaceful as Souq Sharq. Just sitting outside and looking at the clouds and the Kuwait sky line. I really just zoned out. I stopped listening to the conversation in the table and just was in my own little world. It was very peaceful.

After our long lunch, I had to get back to work and finish the computer setup for the government as well as finally drop my insurance papers at the garage. That luckily went smooth, they had all the spare parts and made a time card for my car. I should have it back by the 26/27th.

I figured now just go look at the computer, install the software and go get my rental car. We luckily we had some technicians in that day for our accounting software who were going to do it for me and I just needed to make sure it worked and was ready for tomorrow. Well that didn’t happen the technicians couldn’t do it,for some reason or other. So I started doing it. I spent from 5-7 ripping computers apart. We had 3 spare ones from my accounting upgrade and I just ripped them apart. I created a Frankenstein computer. There were all these little problems, the CD Rom wasn’t working, or the hard drive was SCSI or the power supply. When I thought I created the complete box the computer wouldn’t turn on. There was power then it just died. I was SO pissed spent all this time and nothing was going right.

The accountant seeing my plight then told me I could take the sales computer downstairs. It already had XP on it and just needed me to remove the accounting software. Phew he was a life save. I ran out started removing software and tweaking it, doing defrags and such. It was great and ready to go, I figured best thing to do is copy the driver information like .cabs and stuff to the hard disk in case we needed them. I started the copying and headed back to my office.

I dont know what happened or who did it, but someone rebooted the computer and with the windows install CD inside the install software started. I dont know who this idiot was but he just kept hitting enter, didn’t bother reading that it was going to FORMAT and INSTALL windows again. Cause at 7:30 I got a call from the accountant as he was leaving that the computer was copying files. I thought it was done and ran down to see it was in the process of installing Windows. So basically I didn’t leave work till 9pm

Wasn’t home yet, I was tired and just out of it, but I couldn’t go home. My friend was leaving the next day for a long business trip so had to see him before he left.

So now its 8:45 the people were supposed to meet with me here at 8:15-8:30 to finish our meetings EARLY. I been here since 8:00 to make sure traffic doesn’t make me late. I may a slacker at times but when I tell someone I will be there at a time I will be there.

I am tired and angry and just need to finish my work without people wasting my time.
