Alwah, my beloved

It has been few months, and all my attempts to bring back Alwah were a complete fail
I admit, I am not spending as much time as I intended, but I was not planning this, and it is bugging me with nightmares. I have to fix it, I need to fix, it is such a lose.

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 >>>

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 >>>

Full Quran, Audio, Al-Sedeisi

I had it since 1999, it is very beautifully red, the Full Quran with both readers (Al-Sedeisi and Al-Shreim) during Ramadhan prayer.

Since then I didn't stop listening to it, the pace is fast, the sound is clear, the way they both read it, is beautiful.
I was thinking today, how will I live without it?
I hope not.

Here is the link to download the entire MP3 folder (it has 113 mp3 files with 356,340 KB)

This looks it is hard to understand for any non-Muslim.

The first type is the Dirty, means the items that are obviously not clean, due to dust for example, or to surfaces that are not clean, so those are kind of fine to do most of practice with it.

Off course, it should be clean, but being it unclean will not prevent the practice.

My Desktop at that time

As you can see, it is my desktop at 2005, I was working at File1 at that time and got my webcam to spy on the door to see if there is someone coming in.
Also I used to play spider solitaire, and I got this screen to show the score I got to my friends.
