Self-Help Books That I Recommend

As I was going through theĀ “dark night of the soul” phase of my life, I found refuge and comfort in something that I really enjoyed doing in the past: reading. However, I went from reading mostly fiction to full time non-fiction in the form of self-help books.

The great thing I found about self-help books is that there is one for everything in life, but not all will necessarily resonate within you and create an impact in your life.…

The Samsung 830 SSD

It's been a while since I've gotten my hands on some serious computer hardware, likewise it has been ages since I've upgraded either one of my computers. A couple of years ago I used to take my netbook since my needs did not justify carrying the much heavier notebook. Then I started working on some serious computing applications, from cloud computing to programming and virtualization, I needed something to help me work on the go.…

Skyrim: A Game Worth Every Penny!

I'm not a hardcore gamer, neither am I too casual. I'm more of an in-between gamer, If I get the chance I would spend hours upon hours playing something, or spend some time doing other stuff and game. My platform of choice: the PS3 (The Sony PlayStation 3 for serious non-gamers :-P), after all "it only does everything" (credits to Sony).

When it comes to game genres, I really have no preference.…

Review: Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X 2

I have decided, for once, to get a game locally for my PS3 (I usually buy from Amazon or eBay, due to the rip off around here). It has been just a while since H.A.W.X 2 was released and they had it around here already.

Since it was pretty new, there weren't any reviews around online from sites such as IGN or Gamespot etc… But I felt certain that since this was the second title in H.A.W.X it should be good and better than the first.…

Review: Menatelecom WiMax

It has been just over a month that I have been using a new ISP (switched from Batelco to Menatelecom). So far the experience has been great, but of course like anything there are pros and cons. I am subscribed to the 2Mbps, 12GB cap package that costs BD30/month plus BD3 for the WiMax device rental.

The device is simply a single port router (Motorola CPEi 750), similar to cable modems in some countries.…

Menatelecom: Customers + 1

After many years, ever since Batelco introduced ADSL at what were exorbitant rates, I have decided to jump ship and join the WiMax crowd.

Don’t get me wrong, I love DSL, but unfortunately the only way I am getting a stable fast connection is going through the airwaves. For about a couple of years I have been suffering with terrible line problems that manifested suddenly out of the blue. It took the tech several days of almost living in my home to figure out the problem.…
