Selling my QOSMIO X500


My TOSHIBA X500 is up for sale:
Manufacturer: TOSHIBA
Model Name: QOSMIO X500-Q895S

This laptop is a monster (Check my desktop screenshot here), once you add SSD, you can get the Windows rate of 6.8 (highest number I reached so far)

Intel Core i7-740QM (1.73GHz, 2.93GHz turbo), 6GM RAM, 1GB GPU, 1TB HDD (500GB x 2) 7200rpm, Laminated keyboard with back-lit, WebCam + Mic, Bluray + DVD writer, Win7 Pro

The only downside, is that it is not light at all, it needs to be treated with dignity and care, not your typical portable device at all.



Full specs below Read more >>>

Screenshot today, X500 selling ad

Just to give you an idea of what I am dealing with daily, here is a screenshot today.
This was made before posting the ad on selling my Toshiba QOSMIO X500.
Just note the number of Firefox Mozilla tabs on each of the two Mozilla windows (There is another one I could not get it in the screenshot).
Also note the number of Google Chrome tabs in the 4 Chrome windows.

Google Calendar in Windows 7 Gadgets

Finally, got the Windows 7 gadget that reads my Google calendar. whoo, that was tough

Sounds very easy to find one, but since Windows Gadget service has been shutdown and only few gadgets are online within Microsoft website, I needed to search for a while.
Find the app within the Auther site, or here in Lib - ANmars Recommended Apps (ARA)

Finally found it, thanks to Eelke Spaak

Old family pix and videos

Just got the first bag of our old family photos with some videos.
When I say "Old" I mean 1980s and 1990s photos and videos.
I admit this is one of my wildest dreams, to get them digitize and archived, then share them with family and friends, each with its password to allow religious access.

The VHS videos are the challenging ones, several ones have already been converted into CDs, however, we still have a lot. Read more >>>

Circle of help - Change for a Dollar

Helping is a cirlce, will you stop it when it reaches you???

Or, will you start new cicrle?



The thing we learn here is you need to be either one of those two:
- Start a circle of giving, by initial a giving to random person.
- Connect the circle when it reaches you and do not stop it at your hands, you give when some one gave you.

Own server attempt failure

Attempt failed to establish my own server.
I was looking to a simple cheap easy-to-follow method to create my own server hosting my own website(s) on one of my machines, but it failed.
It is clear that the DNS/IP/CNAME settings where I don't have any experience in were the main thing against me. I tried to avoid that using No-IP.com or DNSExit.com with something called "cloaking" to stop showing IP to end user, but it wasn't what I am looking for. Read more >>>

Website Pointer

I had to learn this technique, linking two domains to one actual site, not redirecting.

And after few searching, I got it and finally linked ANmar.us to ANmars.com.

That was joyful and promising, now I just need to remember how to do it to link Alwa7.net and Alwah.net to Alwa7.com after it is ready to be used.

I might also revisit that procedure and generate screenshot for it, sounds a very good idea now.

ANmar.us

And now for the second time, I bought another host with the same company. It is all thanksgiving blank friday's fault, the discount was too much that I couldn't resist it, especially when they include renewal price with it.
This time I got the domain ANmar.us (or as I call it ANmarus) and we yesterday bought another domain Shoozii.com preparing it for the new diary site (or journal), the idea was Afnan's and the domain name was manely from Shukran's name.

Let us hope that we all keep the energy up regarding this project

My own HTTP server on Win7 ... finally

After few days of trying and failing, I managed tonight to have access to my own server, it is actually a folder on my own laptop that I can access using an IP address+Port.

It was indeed one of my oldest dreams, to get my own server, I don't have one yet, but I know how to do one, I was lost among the IPs, ISPs, DNSs, and stuff like that until made it.

The trick was that my ISP was blocking the port 80, so I have to add another port to my Firewall, then add a port forward in my router firewall (Since I am behind a router) to have access to it.

Check my free subdomain linked to my ip here ANmar.Hopto.org Read more >>>

DX-Ball game

I had this game since 2001, one of my clients in File1 gave it to me, He said that you will love it, at that time I was kind of away from games and consider them a waste of time (I still feel that sometimes) however I became easily addicted to it, not only me, other friends and customers were easily addicted to it.


It needs no setup at all, just unzip and play

Few days ago I had that app in facebook to help me import all my facebook status posts and links into an Excel sheet.
Link to first post

The challange was to combine them both, since Get Me My Data does each type of post in a seperate process, and the one that does all wall is not alighned well.
So I created an Excel spreadsheet called fb.xlsx that does that, which is:
- Reads from the CSV generated by Get me my data into Excel sheet (both Status posts and links posts). Read more >>>

Quick response

During a visit to the doctor, the nurse was trying to get my blood pressure and the meter slipped when she was trying to clip it on my finger, that is when I felt that it will fall and quickly moved my hand to hold it.
At that minute, the nurse was saying "Waao! you have a quick response.!!!"

I spent the few minutes after that remembering the few "Quick" responses I had, and here are some of them:

- Once when I was in High school in Baghdad around 1992. Read more >>>

Girls Can't Eat 15 Pizzas

On the way home from school, since we were hungry and the traffic was bad, I asked my 3 kids to think about something (to let them forget about all that).

So I asked them to create a sentence represents my car plate number. Similar to "Girls Can't Eat 15 Pizzas" we sow on Monk few months ago, why not we do one for my car plate and one for Mom's.

So we came up with those two:
