Maa2 Maa2

ADSL prices decrease, but with tons of strings attached. Orange stabs us again in the back.

As I was reading on Adoosh today, Orange has lowered their ADSL prices, but has lowered all of the limitations. Even our unlimited one. The 128 kb/s internet connection famous for its unlimited download speed is now limited to a 'huge' 2 GB!

What does this mean? Well, for something like 512 kb/s, once you download more than 3 GB, your speed is lowered to 128 until the following month. But to where will the 128 kb/s be lowered to? 56?! Will we now be blogging as if we were on Farah cards? Would images never pop up?

Well with the new limitations applied, what would this mean? No more torrent downloading over night? No more free movies from the net and more visits to the DVD shop? All we can do is wait. If you want to check out if your speed has been limited, try out this and see what you get.

Maybe we can try calling Orange and see if we can get the unlimited back? Ah, no that wont work - they never pick up the phone anyway and you keep listening to that horrible song for hours and hours.

Believe me, I am willing to pay 2 extra JDs so I can get my freedom back. Argh...

Why Do People Like Noor?

What is it that's so fascinating about Noor?

There is barely a meaningful plot to the story. The plot keeps changing all the time its annoying. The show is badly dubbed and it never syncs up with the motion anyway.

The background music is always the same. The soundtrack is horrible. The characters always live in the huge house next to the sea. All the characters work at the same company.

Everyone calls the annoying old man their grandfather, when he isn't their grandfather! The dubbing sometimes changes what they are really saying that you can notice it in the acting.

I have tried to work out why on earth someone would like to see such a show and I have no idea. Now the last thing I need is someones phone to ring and I hear that piece of music again. Oh, god.

Taking Things Apart

Have you ever tried to take something apart to see how it works?

Maybe something was broken and you tried to fix it? Did you fix it in the end? How about you tried to make something better?

A lot of people on the web talk about these things, one of the most popular being Kipkay.

I have tried a lot of times to fiddle around with things, like lights and chargers and the like. Not all worked though.

I want to know, have you ever tried changing something around? And did it work?

Can You Make Money Online?

This question was one I pondered on many times last year.

I had heard many success stories of people who had went on the Internet, done something, and then got millions out of it. Was it all true?

I decided to try it out myself, as I had nothing to lose. But I couldn't do it alone, so I decided to get my slightly older close relative in the game.

After searching many sites, I found a good site called Bux.To, which seemed rather good. You surfed ads for a cent for each ad you see for 30 seconds.

Whats better, is that for each referrals view, you get a cent as well. There was also the option to buy packages of referrals.

I went ahead and bought some referrals with the 15 dollars left in my Paypal account. Soon enough the referrals brought me some money.

Of course, there was a catch, for the payout to come you'll have to wait 60 business days. Quite alot to wait.

At last I had ten dollars, minimum cashout. I requested it on January the 10th, and waited. I waited alot.

Until yesterday.

I really had thought that there was something fishy about the website, until I found an email in my inbox. It said the amount had been paid today.

And, sure to say, the amount was in my account. Sure it took a long time to come, but it was there.

So, I am continuing my online money making experience. Why don't you try it too?

Summer Till Now

Two weeks of summer have past and it’s already fantastic. Not only is it because schools out, but I’m doing quite a lot of activities that make summer worthwhile.

The gym I told you about in a previous post is great. The coaches are well trained and the place is full of rather interesting workout machines. It really is something worth the money.

I’ve watched quite a few films till now, since the last review of Iron Man, I watched Indiana Jones 4, 21, Street Kings and Oceans 13.

The date of the Xbox 360 is coming close, which is in four more days. I don’t exactly know from where to buy it from, does anyone know a place in Amman and its prices?

Other than that, I learned four more pages of Koran, visited lots of relatives, ate lots of food and made lots of milkshake, which my coach advised me to do.

Ah, and my dad went this morning on a one month trip to London.

So that’s all, how is your summer holiday going?
