Sun Solaris workshop

For the past couple weeks I've been busy attending the Sun Solaris workshop. It was quite boring in the beginning but, I managed to entertain myself, the information I gained is mostly what I enjoyed. It was also a chance to break out the shift routine, and best of all I got an opportunity to meet up with fresh minds from different departments in the organization.

The class was given by Amer Saleh which came on special request from Egypt. Amer working for Oracle egypt and he plays a major role as Unix consultant.

Mainly, we covered issues related to Unix Administrator level one and two. There was extra one day we spent getting some shell programming done, basics as well for the advanced level. Yet, we finished a one month books in almost 8 days!

On the last day, I had my camera with me, i've taken nice pictures and uploaded the good ones on special set at flickr click here to list all the pictures.

As for now, I'll be getting back to the old me...

Old taxi driver, buckle up!

Old taxi driver, buckle up!, originally uploaded by mo_mughrabi.

I remembered this story from when I was in Malaysia.. We got with an old chinese man (taxi), there was something funny going on though. When we got in the taxi and asked him to drop us at the hotel. He drove us to the back street of the hotel so then he stopped the car and asked us to continue from here:))

And really you cannot argue with an old man, you just get out.

Living stone

Yes!! Living stone.. I was amazed when I first heard about it.

The living stone grows in Malaysia, I don't know if there is else where.. but, this kind of stone actually grows!.. just like a tree.. In Malaysia you will find special shops selling this kind of stones.. it requires water and light to live and grow bigger.. the amazing part is, it grows really fast and you can see the difference, the colors keep on changing and a crystal will start shaping around it.

Smoking lounges

The only reason I would stop smoking is because am running out of places to smoke in!!.... and even when if there is a smoking lounge in the area it's will be just horrible, smells bad, crowded with people and there is no place to sit.
