NBK Vs. Mac

apple nbk
In the beginning I thought that I was the only person who have problems with Watani Online (WOL) service. The problem was that every time I want to log in to checkout my NBK (National Bank of Kuwait) account on my Mac I have to use Internet Explorer instead of Safari which I usually use for everyday browsing.

Few days ago Mark posted about a problem he was having with using WOL, and from the replies on this topic and other topics that followed I found out that the problem is much worst than I expected. It looks like Internet Explorer, which Microsoft stopped supporting long time ago, is no longer available for download! What that means is that all new Mac users have no way to use WOL and check their accounts online!!

Mark and other Mac users emailed the NBK people, but they were faced with a standardized reply telling them to simply.. use a PC!! I emailed them myself and got an almost identical reply as they did.

This is a monopoly (and not the good fun one :)) which we all should stand against.. both Mac and PC users!

Go ahead.. email them and tell them that you demand equality.

Farewell Baba Jaber

Yes, he is my father..

The father of all Kuwaitis

And like all the Kuwaitis.. I loved him

The news of his death left me in shock for one day.. I couldn’t believe it.. or I believed it but didn’t know how to react

So today, after settling down I started working on this flash animation/video. I don’t know what it is exactly, but there was something which was driving me to get the work done as fast as possible. Finally I did it (ma shaa` Allah 3alaye :)) .. I finished the flash in a record 8 hours or so.. when usually it takes me 8 weeks to do the same job.

As I said, I don’t know what exactly is the thing that was driving me.. but I guess it’s .. Love

And know here it is…

The Farewell..
