Hello, my name is Humbert and I'm currently living in Miami, FL. I sold my house and am planning to move to San Antonio, TX., so I'll probably be offline for a few days until I move in and get a new ISP. In the mean time it's nice to be here with people from all over the globe.  :)

Are you kidding? This is a hellhole. For many years it's been my dream to leave this town forever. I finally got my chance, which literally fell out of the sky. 3 years ago I put my house on the market. Buyers came and went and nobody took the bite. Then the other day as I was walking my dog, someone approached me and asked if I knew someone in this neighborhood who was selling a house. After pausing for a second, I told him I was. He asked for my address and phone number, which I gave him. To make a long story short, the guy saw the house and decided to buy. We expect the closing (and subsequent move to San Antonio) to take place hopefully some time before the month is out (no guarantees). For that reason I'll be offline for a few days, not only do I have to move (first to a rental apartment, then hunt for a house), but I also have to find a new ISP. Please keep my account active if a few days pass and I don't call.

Aha, I see.

I am finally in San Antonio in a rental apartment while I do some house hunting. I like this town. You can find all kinds of things, the people are much nicer than in Miami and the distances far shorter. I'm glad I'm here, although obviously it does take some getting used to a new environment. Incidentally, Maher was the first site I called with my new ISP.
Anyway, don't worry about your account ;)
Wish you good luck man.

Hi,

I found this site's link in torrent I download from demonoid and this site looks very simple and easier to navigate.

I am  new to this site but not to torrents and have small percentage of computer knowledge and hope to help someone where ever I can.

BTW I am male not female  ;) as some people mistaken me for my user name cos its an old name of my town where i live in uk and also use this name on other torrent's sites as well.

Hey man! To alleviate this problem, here in Maher's site simply go to your profile and select "Male" -- then the ? symbol will appear on the left hand side of your name when you post.

Where's "here"? In other words, you're from Egypt but where are you studying medicine?
Stay away from the violence in your country. Remember, let the others do the fighting, you just reap the benefits  ;)

Hello humb25,
I mean by saying "Here" in this forum and I study medicine in Egypt.
By the way, the conditions are now much better and there is no violence any more. As you know there was a revolution here in 25 Jan and we are doing now elections to rebuild our country. I was late to introduce my self as - believe or not - I was reading older posts before joining this forum in Microsoft Windows section and I've recently browsed Chit Chat section.
If you allow me I want you to know that I read your posts and I really respect you very much as you are helpful and fair and the most important thing is that you respect others so you are then respected. I'm not judging you but I'm just chatting with you, so please accept.

Hello Ahmad! First of all, pardon me for not getting back to you sooner. I was having some trouble with Windows and had to reformat my drive. As you know, this means reinstalling and configuring all the apps, which is a detestable and time consuming process.

Thanks for your compliments. As Maher knows, I strongly believe most people are good and that sadly the righteous always end up paying the sinner's wages. I respect and want to know as much as possible about all cultures and peoples. I hope you'll allow me to ask you questions like I do with Maher  ;).

As you know, the news media is very unreliable in their reporting and tend to exaggerate the facts or present news from an opinionated angle. This is why I much prefer to ask people like you and Maher about stuff, since I believe it helps me get closer to the truth. Of course you are correct -- Hosni Mubarak was overthrown Jan 25, 2011 and was replaced by a military government. However, in the news they're showing all kinds of violence going on, people protesting in Tahrir Square and getting hammered by the army. Of course I'm all for elections, but from what I've been hearing those who are ahead and have a good possibility of winning are Islamic extremists who want to forcibly impose Sharia law in Egypt. Naturally this situation is frightening and, to make matters worse, in history it wouldn't be the first time people have voted away their rights -- it's happened so many times in so many countries.

I must stress that extremists who forcibly want to impose their view on others exists in all religions, certainly not just Islam. I could sit here and give you example after example. I firmly believe in respect and rights for all, and all those who want to impose their criteria on others are my enemies.

So tell me: what's really going on in your country?

Hello Mr. Humb25,  :)

Never mind about replying sooner or later. I know that you and Mr. Maher are more busy than me. I appreciate that you reply.

I'll be glad to know you and don't be hesitated to ask me about anything and I'll reply honestly (I hate dissimulation).

Now, I'll tell you about what is happening here according to my point of view, but may my words can't explain clearly, so excuse me.

First of all, I don't belong to any political party. I tell what I'm assured with.
We can't accept except the justly balanced thoughts. If someone under the name of Islam is other than this, then he will be hated and avoided. As he is wrong and he understands wrong.

Regarding the 2 islamic parties in the elections. They are not as media shows them : extremists.
They are the same like us and live with us. But they are related to a party just to organize their efforts not to differentiate themselves from us and not to say they are Muslims and we aren't.
All they aim to is better conditions, justice and equal rights and doing what they say. They know that They can't impose any law forcibly without prior acceptance of people. In fact, what the people think that it's good for us is the same thing that the Islamic ones aim to do. But some people fear them without knowing them. I think media is the cause.

BTW, we have made the third stage of elections here in my city and - believe or not - the 2 Islamic parties had 7 seats from 10 !!
This is people's free will. I'll tell you why.

During Hosny Mubarak's period, Who says that the government is corrupt and tries to remove it goes to prison until "we don't know". Most of those who went to prison belongs to Islamic party and some of others.
Media, of course, said that those people did somewhat and some bla bla bla just to show them as evil and government is not like what they said.
So, People know that those people say right and don't dissimulate like others. As here during elections, all say we'll do bla bla bla and when winning, we don't see them as they become busy with stealing and making money in their period of power.
So, really people become very sick of hypocrisy and dissimulation and they want a change.

As those 2 islamic parties are under the name of Islam, so they have to do what they have said and can't break promises. They can't do like those before them.

For me honestly, I elected one of them as I don't trust most of the others (not all but most) and I want to try them as we've tried the others before and all they did is swimming with waves and the situation is still as it is. We really want to advance and I think they are honest.
We don't elect them because they are under Islam name. We elect good ones Regardless of the party they belong to. So, I elected them as they are really more efficient than others. They are not Mosque Preachers who are not qualified for this responsibility. They are from all fields and very organized. Before this period, they used to do some helpful activities in the places they live in like free teaching, free therapy and somethings like that for poor people.

Some other people - the residues of the previous government and others with similar principles - try to succeed by frightening people of those Islamic ones as many people don't know about Islam well. They are frightening people especially Christians with things that don't relate to Islam and will never happen. I don't know how !! Because if you hurt a Muslim, then you have made a sin and if you hurt a Christian, then the sin is bigger !!
It's enough to say that our prophet - who we have to do what he said- ordered us to take care of Christians and never hurt them because if you hurt one of them as if you hurt our prophet himself.
I've heard a Priest saying that he is Optimistic about the next period.
Do you know that during 25 Jan Tahrir revolution, Christians were covering Muslims backs while praying. They were protecting each other and some were killed together. We are brothers here and who says other than this wants disunity to us.

Finally, this is some of what is happening. Most of it is a dirty game and really truth is not so clear but I hope it ends well. BTW, I don't belong to any Islamic party either. I'm only seeking for the best fairly.
Thanks... :)

I also hate dissimulation and hipocrisy. In all honesty I had to look up the word in the dictionary  :). This is one reason I love to correspond with people such as Maher and yourself -- you tell it like it is.

In fact, what the people think that it's good for us is the same thing that the Islamic ones aim to do. But some people fear them without knowing them. I think media is the cause.

Thanks for clarifying all this, since as you know the news media hardly ever reports the truth. I think even if they said there was an earthquake in the Pacific Rim, I'd probably doubt it  :). Still, there's something here I don't fully understand: if indeed the Islamic parties are as you say (idealists as opposed to extremists), why do they even label themselves as the "Islamic Party" -- especially in a country where the majority of people are Muslims? Why not just say they are idealists who will fight for rights and benefits for the Egyptian people, and by the way our religion is Islam?

During Hosny Mubarak's period, Who says that the government is corrupt and tries to remove it goes to prison until "we don't know". Most of those who went to prison belongs to Islamic party and some of others.
Media, of course, said that those people did somewhat and some bla bla bla just to show them as evil and government is not like what they said.

So, really people become very sick of hypocrisy and dissimulation and they want a change.

I can certainly understand that after so many years under a dictator, the people are demanding their rights and freedoms. As you know, this is happening all over the Arab world. First came Mubarak, followed by the guy in Tunisia. Then came our friend Gadhafi in Libya (with a little help from NATO and the Arab League), and our course it's just a matter of time for our friend Bashar in Syria. I don't even think an intervention by outside forces will be necessary. There is simply no way Bashar can crush this revolution. I only wish that the "Arab spring" (as the media calls it) would apply for all other dictatorships in the world, especially in my native Cuba.

Some other people - the residues of the previous government and others with similar principles - try to succeed by frightening people of those Islamic ones as many people don't know about Islam well. They are frightening people especially Christians with things that don't relate to Islam and will never happen. I don't know how !! Because if you hurt a Muslim, then you have made a sin and if you hurt a Christian, then the sin is bigger !!
It's enough to say that our prophet - who we have to do what he said- ordered us to take care of Christians and never hurt them because if you hurt one of them as if you hurt our prophet himself.

Do you know that during 25 Jan Tahrir revolution, Christians were covering Muslims backs while praying. They were protecting each other and some were killed together. We are brothers here and who says other than this wants disunity to us.

Certainly what you said is true, but there's something you have to keep in mind -- not all Islamic (or Jewish, Christian, etc) leaders follow the tenets of their religion. Saudi Arabia is a fine example. There, Sharia law reigns supreme and no other religions are tolerated. You can't even construct a Christian church there. Women aren't allowed to drive, etc. etc.  However, in 1945 US President Roosevelt made a deal with King Ibin Saud -- protection for oil. Accordingly, despite not only their abuses of human rights but especially how they ignore the words of the Prophet Mohammed (peace be upon him), they are not pictured as extremists the the news media. I only hope and pray that you are correct and the Islamic parties do as you say they will.

Oh, by the way -- what city do you live in? If I don't know where it is, I'll find it on Google Maps. I'm in San Antonio in the American state of Texas.

Hello Mr. Humb25,  :)

Quote
why do they even label themselves as the "Islamic Party"
Actually they are now under an ordinary name as a political party. One is called "Freedom and Justice" and the other is called "The Light".
But people knew them before and called them "Islamic" as those people want Islamic instructions to be applied as the solution to better life.
To let you know, these instructions are not only in religion like pray ...etc
They are in every field of life and can organize our life perfectly but only if we apply them in justly balanced way as they are. And I think we do as we have "Al Azhar" which is the oldest and biggest Islamic Foundation in the world that are full of great Islamic scientists (and also in other fields) who teach a lot of people around the world.

and some must do wrong sometimes. Others have to help them if they are right and correct them if they are wrong. We must do our best. It's not an easy process.

Certainly I have no problem with the fact that their religion is Islam. Based on what you're telling me, though (and correct me if I'm wrong), they want Islam not only to be in religion and prayer, but as part of Egyptian law. If this is truly the case, then I must disagree. I firmly believe in strict separation of Church (or Mosque in the case) and State. The only way to insure that the rights of all are protected is to have a pluralistic society where everyone has the right to freely do as they please (without harming others, of course), and to freely practice any religion they choose, or for that matter, not to practice any if they so decide. History has proven time and time again that any church-state union leads to big trouble and to the elimination of the basic rights of those who disagree. Please tell me I'm mistaken.

I'm from El-Mahalla El-Kubra, Al Gharbiyah, Egypt.   (or Al Mahalla Al Kubra written with "El" or "Al" according to the way you pronounce it)

I found your city on the map. You're about 100 km north of Cairo. During the Jan 25 revolution, did they have protests there too or were they confined mostly to the Capital?

Take good care,
Humbert

Hello Humbert,  :)
They want Islam instructions to be applied in people's manners before Egyptian law, as what lead us to this is stealing and generally bad manners.
Actually, it is a big name "Islam be applied" and I can't tell you all about it as it contains a lot of policy, treatments and situations and I don't know well about it as this is Islam scientists business.
But I'm sure that all will have equal rights and what you have said is going to happen better than before:
Quote

Because it is in the heart of Islam.
However, the high priority now is to enhance people's life especially poor people and how to apply social equality as to let you know,
Some people earn about 500,000 LE monthly and others earn from 500 to 2000 LE monthly and believe or not some are below that. Also, believe or not, some don't earn anything and don't live a human life !!
This is what concerns people of the council now. (A human comfortable life)
Generally, nearly half the council are Islamic and the other half from other parties.
I think it's good to represent all people's demands.
Regarding other countries, really I don't know about their law and how they apply it. But I'm sure if we apply what Islam calls for (in justly balanced way as it is), we will be great and everyone (Muslim or not) will be happy.
Actually, everything that one thinks it is good for people, I hear something like that in Islam.
Quote
History has proven time and time again that any church-state union leads to big trouble and to the elimination of the basic rights of those who disagree
No no !! we will never be like this. No mosque will rule and all will be equal. We just want good manners, justice, honest men for power and eventually better life.
Quote
During the Jan 25 revolution, did they have protests there too or were they confined mostly to the Capital?
Actually, my city started it about 3 years ago. We had great protests here all over the city but unfortunately, it wasn't all over the country. No other cities participated, so the government succeeded then. And some people were in prison since then. In 25 Jan, revolution was everywhere. Nobody could stop it.

Finally, I'm happy to have you as a wise friend.
Be well and safe. :)
Just for your knowledge, most people write my name "Ahmed", but
as we pronounce it in Arabic, it should be "Ahmad".... Never mind.  ???

I'm glad you named me correctly in your post  :)

It is not necessary to be Islamic to have a government that respects the rights of everyone and at the same time acts to control negative behavior. What I don't believe in is laws that [for example] would force women to wear veils or prohibit the sale of alcoholic beverages. If an islamic woman wants to wear a veil, it's her right -- but not because there is a law that says she must do so. Similarly, I agree with punishing crimes that involve alcohol. However, those of us who every now and then might drink 1 or 2 beers or glasses of wine and in the process harm no one should be left alone and respected. Also, keep in mind that not all "Islamic scientists" think alike, Egypt needs those will who do as you say.

Because it is in the heart of Islam.

Thank you very much. I feel the same way about you. I'm also glad you gave me the correct pronunciation of your name. This becomes more difficult when you're in a situation where a different alphabet is involved. I was always telling Maher that one thing I envy about him is the fact that the 3 languages he's fluent in involve 3 different alphabets. I'm stuck because in both English and my native Spanish the Latin alphabet is used, so this is all I can read or write. :(

Hello Humbert,  :)
I hope you are well and safe.

It is not necessary to be Islamic to have a government that respects the rights of everyone and at the same time acts to control negative behavior.
I'm fully with you about this and I told you before that we didn't choose those people because they are under the name of Islam, but because they are better and honest. Most of the others (not all) want the power for personal benefits not for the country. In my city, some have succeeded and they don't belong to any party but because they are good so people have chosen them. So, we don't have a problem about this. We want good people (any party)

What I don't believe in is laws that [for example] would force women to wear veils or prohibit the sale of alcoholic beverages. If an islamic woman wants to wear a veil, it's her right -- but not because there is a law that says she must do so......
- Believe me, there are not and won't be any law about this. There is difference between Sharia and what is imposed as a law. To be clear, some things are between the one and his creator. No one else can force him to do these things or not to do. But all of us know what Allah ordered us to do and not to do. So, it's the one's choice.

- Believe me also, nobody here are talking about such things except who don't know well about Islam and law in Islam. They are supposed to talk about what is going to happen in Economy, Industry, Education and so on not such things. (This is what I heard from Islamic parties)
- For your knowledge, There will be a committee of people from all parties. This committee is responsible for imposing the law. No one will force other to do anything as I told before.

- Believe me also that the main purpose of our open-minded religion is to provide a good life for people not to wait for them to sin to punish them. (Punishment is the last thing in Islam and forgiveness has higher priority as long as the right of others won't be lost).
I know media is the cause. Also, If someone is related to Islam or any religion doesn't make the correct thing in a thing, it doesn't mean that the religion is like him. This one just understands wrong about his religion. Unfortunately, media has made the picture of Islam and Muslims like those ones !!!

- When I told you about Islam scientists, I meant scientists and professors of university of "Al-Azhar" (The biggest foundation teaching Islam in the world). Those professors don't belong to any party. They have studied about Islam in "Al-Azhar" in justly balanced way since they were young and become professors. So they know better than anyone about Islam. No one of them is related by anyway to policy and no one of them want power.
I meant those professors when I told you about (Islam be applied is such a big phrase as I can't tell you well about it as it's very complex and it's those professors business)

Because we take our religion not only from "Al-Qur'an Al-Kareem" but also from what happened with our prophet "Muhammad" (Peace be upon him and all prophets)
What did he say? what did he do when something happen? How did he deal with something?
Why did he deal with something in a different way from the same one before it? What was the difference in circumstances then? ... and so on.
So, it's not like what you hear or know from media. We are very open-minded and have everything in Islam that make our life very good but only if we do it. (Not only do and don't do but also situations and wisdom to deal with events)

Finally, I didn't mean you by my words but I know what is being said about Islam in media and I was trying to make it clear for you to understand right about us.  :)

I wish you all the best, my friend.  :)

Hello Ahmad! Thanks for the information.

I'm quoting a small part of your message because it pretty much says it all. Basically it is the fact that Islam is a religion of peace and respect and the news media always exaggerates and tells lies and half-truths. There is also an old saying, "the rightgeous always pay the sinners' wages". This happens not only in Islam but in all religions, nationalities, ethnic groups, etc. Bad people of all persuasions always make the news precisely because they cause trouble, so the media reports it with huge headlines and implies that everyone in that group is the same, which is far from true. I'm glad that the people who have a good chance of winning the elections are idealists who want only to create an Egyptian government whose job is to defend people's rights as opposed to taking them away and to help the poor and disadvantaged lead a better life. It's too bad that in many parts of the world (certainly not just the Arab world) there are dictators who care nothing about their people and will do whatever it takes to stay in power and enrich themselves regardless of whether or not their people even have food to eat. I could sit here and name example after example, and of course I don't mean in history, I mean today! Hopefully they will all be overthrown by the their people who have simply had enough of this abuse.

Take good care, dear friend, and keep writing  :)

Keep in mind that my anxieties about "Islamic parties" in Egypt are based on my country's history. When Fidel Castro came to power in Cuba, one reason he was so popular at first was he managed to convince everyone, even the State Department in Washington, that he was an idealist who's only concern was to rid the country of the previous leadership and bring my people the very best in every regard. He even said he was strongly anti-Communist! After about a year he began to show his true colors and ended up becoming the country's worst dictator in its history. It's important to emphasize that in no way am I saying a similar thing will happen in Egypt, remember we're talking about 2 very different countries with 2 very different cultures. I just know that almost nobody learns the lessons of history.

I don't know what to say for now as there is no updates, but I can say that I really appreciate that you share others their problems and try to help. You are really a good man and I wish you and all who you care for all the best.

As they say here in America "flattery will get you everywhere" :). Thanks for the compliments. I've always liked to learn as much as possible and to teach people to help themselves. Everything I learn shows me how little I really know. And of course, I help people because when I'm in need, I'd love it when someone helps me. I also like the idea of having people such as yourself and Maher as personal friends. Both of you are not only intelligent but very open minded as well.

Be safe,

Hello Humbert,  :)

Keep in mind that my anxieties about "Islamic parties" in Egypt are based on my country's history........  It's important to emphasize that in no way am I saying a similar thing will happen in Egypt, remember we're talking about 2 very different countries with 2 very different cultures. I just know that almost nobody learns the lessons of history.

I know what you mean, my friend and that's why I'm calling you "Wise"  :)
And that's why I'm saying "I hope they do as we expect" as nobody is perfect, but as we say here in Egypt: "We did what we should do, and the rest is to Allah."
So, we should pray and be optimistic and everything will be fine.

I also like the idea of having people such as yourself and Maher as personal friends. Both of you are not only intelligent but very open minded as well.

Thanks a lot and I have the same feelings.  :D
By the way, I don't compliment you. I say what I'm actually seeing.

I want to ask about something, Do you really have an internet speed 30 Mbps? I've read before in a previous forum. Do you pay too much for it or normal? Is that the normal speed in America or just you who has a high one?
I just want to know the difference between internet service in both countries. And of course I wish you more comfort. I'll tell you about my speed next time.
Be safe and all you care for.  :)

You're absolutely right! Curiously, in my culture we too have a similar saying, except naturally we use the word "God" instead of "Allah" (basically the same thing). There is no question that you are clear about all this. The people of Egypt fought and died to oust Mubarak and the tyrannical military leaders that followed, and put their trust in "The Light". All we can do now is sit, wait and hope for the best.

Thanks a lot and I have the same feelings.  :D

Yes, I know that. I was kidding when I said "flattery will get you everywhere"  :)

One thing that has helped to increase internet speeds here is that they've buried fiber-optic cables everywhere, but more importantly, that you have several companies in competition for your business. Every company gives you a choice of the internet speeds you want and, naturally, the fatter the pipe the more you pay. I pay $50. monthly for 30-Mbps (that's 30 down & 5 up) because I share the connection with my wife and because I like to stream movies to my TV, especially HD movies which eat bandwidth like crazy. They offered me 50-Mbps, but the price was way too high ($99.), so I kept 30 and frankly I see no reason to pay the extra money. This is from my cable TV company and, of course, doesn't include what I pay for television. To give you a better idea of what I mean, my daughter was going to put internet where she's living and asked me what she should put (one company offered her 12 Mbps for $20). I told her if she wasn't sharing the connection and didn't have the time to watch streamed HD movies, that 12 was more than enough, plus the fact that you always have the option of buying more bandwidth if needed, they'll be more than happy to sell it to you  :)

Now you've made me curious. How are internet connections in Egypt? Do you buy your internet from a private company, as we do here? How fast is your connection and do you have
WiFi included in the price (as I do)?

Be safe and keep writing,
Humbert

Hello my dear friend, Humbert :)

WiFi included in the price (as I do)?

Be safe and keep writing,
Humbert

Be prepared for the shock ...  :o
I'll tell you about only me but keep in mind that about 50% of Egyptian are like me and some of the rest are below and some are higher.
First of all, I'm still studying and living with my parents, so I have no personal income.
There are 2 main companies here providing internet and they are similar in everything.

Some people here take internet as a project ; they get about from 4 to 8 Mbps ADSL2 line speed (which is the fastest speed I've ever heard that someone I know is using)
After that, he starts to distribute it or share it with people who need internet through (router and switches) in exchange for about 25 LE monthly for the individual and he limits downloading speed to 50 Kbps.
I tried this on my start on the internet about 2 years ago, but it was very very bad  :'( as we were over 30 sharing the same line !! )

After that, my neighbor told me that he will get a line speed of 512 Kbps (100 LE monthly )and wants me and some other neighbors to share with him and pay such as him.
We were 4 at first and it was relatively better than before. Then we became 7 on a line speed of 1 Mbps. No big difference !!
Of course, there is no watching streaming video. If you want to watch some video, download it first or watch it in the early morning !!

My parents can afford about 50 LE for internet (which means sharing a line speed of 2Mbps with other 4 people as it costs 250 LE monthly), and I'll be very happy.
But most people don't want to pay more than 25 LE monthly.
Some people works with higher speeds; My brother have some friends works with 4 Mbps in the same way like us.

Finally, this is the level of internet service of about 50% of Egyptians and we are really good in living (in other things in life) We say (Alhamdulellah) or (Thanks God)
But I think that it's the internet service that is very expensive here in comparison with the income of people. So, I hope they enhance it in the near future.
I hope I was clear enough in my words.
Be well, safe and happy, my dear friend.  :)

Before I continue, let me ask you -- when you refer to your currency, you say LE. I went to the Oanda financial site and saw that in Egypt they use the Egyptian Pount (EGP), with an exchange rate of about 6 against the US dollar. What, then is LE?

Sorry about this. Here, we used to use (LE) instead of (EGP)
LE means (Livre Egyptian) which is the same word of Egyptian pound but in French.

Quote
I understand that your neighbor would want to resell the "fast" internet service he's paying for and put a few more EGP's in his pocket.

No no, He just shares with us. When someone joins us, we re-divide the whole sum onto the new number of users and everyone pays like the others including my neighbor himself as he doesn't trade, he just needs internet like me.

Quote
what I don't understand is how does he wire the connections?

First, he has the ADSL2 line from the telephone line through a splitter which splits the telephone line into 2 lines >> one for the telephone and the other for the main connection in the back of the router. Then, the router has 4 output connections. My connection is from one of those 4 output connections. He passes all cables from the router through a small hole he made in the wall of his house then towards the room windows of his neighbors including me.
One of those 4 cables enters a switch which splits it into other 4 connections.

Quote
Let me state that the US is not the most advanced country when it comes to technology. Japan, South Korea, Finland and some other countries are more advanced than we are. Many Americans when visiting those countries come back saying "we live in a backward country".

I'm completely with you, but you are my only friend who can tell me the difference and really, you were such a good teller. I just wanted to know how expensive is the internet service here. As you know 1 $ equals about 6 EGP, then we pay 25 $ (150 EGP) for 1 Mbps speed  !!!  Isn't it too much ?!!

Quote
Also, a comment on the fact that the Egyptian people generally don't need the internet to have a good time.

You are absolutely right. A lot of people here including my parents don't need internet at all in their life. My generation is considered the first one who uses internet in such way.

Quote
people lock themselves up at home to be on the internet, play video games or watch the hundreds of channels available in hi def TV. Why do you think Facebook is so popular? Obviously because humans need human contact

You are right and I'm completely with you.
Thanks for the information and have a nice day.  :)

OK, I get it now. Basically the same thing but only in French.

In other words, your friends isn't out to make make a pound, he wants to share the connection and have others help him pay for it. I know all about ADSL, we used it here years ago before it became obsolete. My in-law's house in Mexico still has such a connection, though. How your friends shares his internet connection makes perfect sense. I first thought what he did was buy an add-on router with 8 ports (this attaches to one ethernet port on the main router, in effect giving you 8 more ports), and from there for every interested neighbor attach an ethernet cable to one of those ports and run it to his house. However, based on what you're telling me, doing this is impossible because running so many cables through that hole in his wall isn't possible. This obviously forces him to get a 4-port splitter attached to the 1 cable that'll fit through his hole.

I'm completely with you, but you are my only friend who can tell me the difference and really, you were such a good teller. I just wanted to know how expensive is the internet service here. As you know 1 $ equals about 6 EGP, then we pay 15 $ (150 EGP) for 1 Mbps speed  !!!  Isn't it too much ?!!

To give you just a brief idea of how advanced some other countries are, when I visited Canada some 10 years ago I was at a bus stop in the city of Calgary. There was a sign with a number on it and a toll free number that you called. When the recording came out, you punched in the numbers from the sign on your cell phone. The recording responded "the bus will arrive at 14:17 - thank you". Sure enough, at exactly that hour the bus arrived. In Finland, if you want a soft drink from a vending machine, no coins are necessary - you take out your phone, punch in a few numbers, and out comes your drink. You can even turn on your house's sprinklers with your cell phone, no need to go outside in the cold. Like this there are many more. I haven't seen things like this anywhere in America.

The price of internet in Egypt isn't so different from here. I too could pay much less than I do now, but down goes the bandwidth they're giving me. As I told you before, my daughter pays $20 for 12 Mbps, and could pay less if she needed less bandwidth.  The contrast comes with the average income in Egypt, which I assume is substantially less than what it is here.

Also, a comment on the fact that the Egyptian people generally don't need the internet to have a good time.

As I said here once before, I saw someone on Facebook post this comment: "Wasn't the world a better place when apples and blackberries were just fruits"?  :)

BTW - I used to ask Maher all kinds of things concerning his culture and religion (which is close to yours). Do you mind if I ask you the same sort of questions, given the fact that Maher is with his new job and has little time to be on here?

I'll tell you in more details and sorry if I couldn't be clear in my words.
As I told you before, the telephone cable is inside his house. He puts it inside some splitter and this splitter comes out with 2 cables >> one for the telephone and the other is the main ethernet connection which enters the main ethernet port in the router which by its turn gives 4 additional ports to 4 users >>  He takes one of them for his computer and he passes the other 3 cables through a small hole in the wall of the room on the street. >>  I live in front of him, so I take one cable directly. >>  For now 2 cables are taken >> Other neighbor lives beside him also takes a cable directly. >> The fourth cable enters something called a switch which is similar to the router and by its turn gives 4 or 8 or 12 additional ports (I don't exactly know) But only 4 users take from it for now.
BTW, This switch is in the Balcony of the house of one of our neighbors who takes a connection from it.
We were only 4 at first and the main router gives 4 ports, so we didn't need any additional switches. But, when some neighbors needed, they brought this switch and we doubled the speed.

To give you just a brief idea of how advanced some other countries are, when I visited Canada......

Who knows ?!!
May be, we catch those countries. I hope it will be soon .

No no man, I'm not with you here !!
Internet here is very expensive... just compare.
You pay $50 for 30 Mbps and your daughter pays $20 for 12 Mbps.
We pay $25 for only 1 Mbps  (Sorry I wrote it ($15) wrong last time)
So, from what you are telling me, we are supposed to get a 15 Mbps line speed.
Besides, what you've said about the income. So, it's against us from all sides  :'(
However, it's OK for me. I've adapted.  8)
 
BTW - I used to ask Maher all kinds of things concerning his culture and religion (which is close to yours). Do you mind if I ask you the same sort of questions, given the fact that Maher is with his new job and has little time to be on here?

I hope my words help me to transfer culture clearly as it is without increasing or decreasing.
Take care.  :)

OK, I know exactly what your friend is doing. I'm familiar with the "add-on router" (or whatever it's called) because when I worked I was the computer guru at the company. The ISP didn't even give us a router, just a network cable connected to his servers and instructions to "share it". I had to buy about 3 of those 8-port add-ons and daisy chain them so everyone could not just share the internet connection but also allow the computers to share files among themselves. Although ADSL is no longer used here, it is used in Mexico. My in-laws have exactly the same thing your friend has -- a telephone line with a splitter, one wire to the router, the other to the phone.

Who knows ?!!
May be, we catch those countries. I hope it will be soon .

Given how fast the electronics industry is advancing, I wouldn't be surprised that in the not too distant future those advances they have will come to our countries too. Just 20 years ago when you were born, the things the internet does today, the tremendous ability of smartphones, and even hi-def TV were the stuff of science fiction. Many people even argued that such things weren't even possible!

No no man, I'm not with you here !!
Internet here is very expensive... just compare.

A simple misunderstanding. I'm glad you cleared it up. You're correct in saying that the only thing to do is adapt. I was lucky enough to spend just a week in Mexico, but during that time I was tearing out my hair  :)
 
Anytime, my friend. Why not ?!!
I hope my words help me to transfer culture clearly as it is without increasing or decreasing.
Take care.  :)

I hope you don't think later that you've opened a "can or worms" by allowing me to ask  :). But anyway, I do so mostly out of curiosity. I've always loved to learn stuff, especially about different peoples and cultures, and of course their history which is critical.

A little about you. I know you're a medical student. You're definitely doing the right thing living with your parents and devoting 100% of your time to your studies. Who knows, maybe one day you'll be my personal physician <not kidding>. Let me ask you this for now: your English is very good - how did you learn it? Even if you studied it in school, if you are in an environment where all they speak is Arabic, it's all the more difficult to learn another language. This especially true given the fact that you had to learn the Latin (or Roman) alphabet. How did you manage it? Did you ever spend some time in an English speaking country, or at least in a country where you can use English to get around? I can name a few examples, in fact Israel is one of them  :) -- my sister's boyfriend is Jewish and he's taken her to Israel a few times. She reports that over there everybody speaks English, learning or practicing Hebrew is almost impossible. I might add that her boyfriend was born in Cairo <details upon request>.

Also, obviously you have an Arabic keyboard on your computer. However, I remember once when I travelled to Taiwan, their keyboards had Chinese characters in the lower left-hand corner of each key, and a Latin letter in the upper right. This way they could switch back and forth. Is yours like that, or did you add English to your Windows as an additional language and memorize the position of the keys? I think this is what Maher did. Let me know.

More questions will follow  :)

Here, in Egypt, we study English in school from the beginning of learning, and French in only 2 years at high school. I loved English so much and I was very good at it, and that helped me a lot.
I have never been outside Egypt. But, I think the main thing that helped after school and loving to learn English is that we study Medicine in complete English <no one Arabic word>, So, this made English more present in my mind.

Yes, you are right. My keyboard is like what you mentioned but Arabic characters instead of Chinese. For now, I can't memorize the position of keys like Mr. Maher.
I'm working with a normal English XP, but when installing it, I add Arabic as an additional language just to read and write in Arabic.
- Regarding Windows and applications, I never worked with it in Arabic <Believe or not> I don't understand it when in Arabic or I'm not used with it in Arabic.

Relax -- it'll take some time but sooner or later it'll get there. As an example -- was there even internet in Egypt 10 years ago? Probably not or, if it existed, it was limited to the very few. Exactly the same thing happened here after about 1990, when the government finally gave the network away to the people.

No !!  Don't worry about that. It's OK with me.  8) [asking questions]

Many thanks! Let me ask you one right now. How religious (or secular) is Egypt now? Let me explain. I have never been to the Middle East, but I've talked to friends who have. This was under Sadat and subsequently Mubarak. They explained that Egypt was one of the most secular countries in the Arab world. Sure, religions were respected and everyone was free to practice as they chose, BUT neither the government nor those who practiced tried to impose religious law on anyone. I was told there were bars where you could buy alcoholic beverages, you could dance with women openly, and women could wear bikinis on the beach without fear. Was this true and, if so, has anything changed?

Thanks for giving me trust.  :D

I think this is great! As you're aware, in the days when the sun never set on the British empire, they spread their language all over the world, and today it is being spread by the American empire. In terms of speakers, English is the 2nd language in the world behind Mandarin Chinese (Spanish, Arabic and Russian follow, in that order). I mentioned the language situation in Israel, but they're by no means the only country. When I visited the Netherlands, everyone spoke English -- and I don't mean high class people with a college education. The cashier at a grocery store, the taxi driver, the guy who sells pizza and the bartender are all fluent in English. If you're trying to learn Dutch, you'll probably have a hard time. I asked a young girl from Finland who was here on a fellowship program if she learned English here. She told me NO, in Finland they teach English in school and learning it is mandatory. Similarly, once I Thailand I took a tour of the Royal Palace. The tours were in either English or the Thai language. The English tour was full of people from all over the world, from Engish-speaking countries there was just me and 2 British guys.

Yes, you are right. My keyboard is like what you mentioned but Arabic characters instead of Chinese. For now, I can't memorize the position of keys like Mr. Maher.

My situation is exactly like yours. If I see a Spanish copy of Windows (as I often do in Mexico), I'm almost totally lost. Reading a computer technical manual in Spanish is a little like trying to read it in Arabic :). I remember once when my wife's niece's and her boyfriend visited us here. I let him use him my GPS. The idiot went into it and, without even asking for permission, changed the whole thing to Spanish. I was lost! It took me almost an hour of tinkering to change it back. I was mad, I wanted to kill the guy. >:(

Thanks for everything. More will follow.

They explained that Egypt was one of the most secular countries in the Arab world. Sure, religions were respected and everyone was free to practice as they chose
I don't know about those days. BUT, I think Egypt has become more religious than before. Also, everyone does what he wants. <as long as it's acceptable from people>

BUT neither the government nor those who practiced tried to impose religious law on anyone.
It seems that I was not clear enough in my words. I told you before, nobody here is trying to impose religious law on anyone. You're free to do what you want and the law is being imposed by a committee from all parties representing all people.

I was told there were bars where you could buy alcoholic beverages
Yes, it's still available but it's not common like other stuff. <not like PEPSI or Coffee>. Who wants it knows where to buy it as you know 90% doesn't drink it.

you could dance with women openly, and women could wear bikinis on the beach without fear.
There are special beaches for tourists <and Some Egyptians especially some Actors and actresses>
There, they do what they want.
But, no Egyptian can do that in front of people <Not Acceptable>.
Also there are night clubs. There, they do what they want also.

But, frankly, Every Egyptian does that is known for the other normal people that he is not a good man and can't gain respect. But, he still does what he wants !!
For tourists, people just know that they are as they are. So, no problem with them.

Take care.  :)

That's the important thing. Whether or not the nation or its people become more religious isn't really the issue. The bad part would be the imposition of religious law on people by force, and of course I don't mean just Islam, I mean any religion. Not only is history full of examples of this, but even today I can mention some countries where this happens.

Yes, it's still available but it's not common like other stuff. <not like PEPSI or Coffee>. Who wants it knows where to buy it as you know 90% doesn't drink it.

Makes perfect sense. If the majority of people don't patronize places that do nothing more than serve alcoholic beverages, from a purely economic standpoint what sense does it make to have a bar? Naturally the good thing is that is at least not illegal to buy or consume liquor.

There are special beaches for tourists <and Some Egyptians especially some Actors and actresses>
There, they do what they want.
But, no Egyptian can do that in front of people <Not Acceptable>.
Also there are night clubs. There, they do what they want also.

Here it's common to see women in bikinis at beaches, and when I lived in Miami there was (or is) a highly touristy place called "South Beach". There, women are allowed to go topless on the beach (not outside of it). There is even a small section of a beach further north (about 200 meters) that has been officially designated as a nude beach. However, both the bikinis and nudity are restricted only to the beaches, it's not acceptable anywhere else. In many parts of Western Europe women can legally go topless, but then again in that cold weather, who is going to exercise that right? I'm also glad there are still night clubs in Egypt and people can do as they please, without hurting anyone or violating local laws. I remember once on TV they were showing a dance party is Saudi Arabia -- it was conducted with extreme secrecy and on constant lookout for the Muttawa (religious police).

By the way, you are a Sunni Muslim, correct? Do you pray 5 times a day like Maher does? Generally, how devout are you?

Take care,
Humbert

Hello dear friend, Humbert !  :)
Sorry for being late, I was busy.

Makes perfect sense. If the majority of people don't patronize places that do nothing more than serve alcoholic beverages, from a purely economic standpoint what sense does it make to have a bar? Naturally the good thing is that is at least not illegal to buy or consume liquor.
For now, it's not illegal but as I told you before, in special places and hotels known by who wants it.

I'm also glad there are still night clubs in Egypt and people can do as they please, without hurting anyone or violating local laws.
Frankly, I'm not glad with that. And not only me !!
Here, this is shame and as I told before, it's limited to a special class of people and for that, they can't gain people's respect. <This is against what we have been raised on>
This is what most of us feel towards that. Yet, they can still do it.

This is because if a man is Muslim, then why does he do what Allah ordered him not to do ?!
For this, he can't gain respect.
For non Muslims, they are not blamed and they can do what they want and we have to treat them well (We are ordered with that and we love to do orders with love).

By the way, you are a Sunni Muslim, correct? Do you pray 5 times a day like Maher does?
Yes, All Egyptians are Sunni Muslims.
And yes, we pray 5 times a day like Maher.

Generally, how devout are you?
This is really a big question and I can't know the answer of it.
Every Muslim does what he can do and only Allah knows how devout he is.

Be well safe.

Hello dear friend, Humbert !  :)
Sorry for being late, I was busy.

Relax. I've also been off the site a few days. Just one of those things, I guess.

For now, it's not illegal [alcohol] but as I told you before, in special places and hotels known by who wants it.

I have no problem with that. In the same way that those who don't want it are free not to drink it, those who DO want it have every right to obtain it, provided of course they do not drive or engage in unacceptable behavior.

Frankly, I'm not glad with that. And not only me !! [night clubs]
Here, this is shame and as I told before, it's limited to a special class of people and for that, they can't gain people's respect. <This is against what we have been raised on>

For non Muslims, they are not blamed and they can do what they want and we have to treat them well (We are ordered with that and we love to do orders with love).

I can understand that you and those who have been raised as faithful Muslims would avoid night clubs entirely. However, it's important to understand that not everyone thinks the same way, and I do not refer to non-Muslims. In a nation of 90 million, I'm willing to bet anything that not all who were raised as Muslims practice the religion faithfully, and this concept is by no means just in Islam. Not all pray 5 times a day and many will drink alcohol in moderation, and like to visit night clubs occasionally. I firmly believe their rights must be respected too, once again provided they do not hurt anyone in the process. In order to have freedom OF religion, you must also have freedom FROM religion.

This is really a big question and I can't know the answer of it.
Every Muslim does what he can do and only Allah knows how devout he is.

I think there's confusion with my use of the word "devout". To me that simply means someone who strongly believes and faithfully practices not just a religion, but any kind of belief system. For example, those people who faced armed soldiers at Tahrir Square are devout Egyptians because they strongly believe in and love their country. Based on everything you've told me, you are clearly a devout Muslim. I, by comparison, am not. I was raised as a strict Catholic but at age 18 I just got fed up and left the religion entirely. Naturally, as you know I respect all beliefs and I'm curious about them, the only thing I have a problem with is the forcible imposition of any beliefs, customs or practices on anyone -- religious, political or whatever.

Be well safe.

Hello dear friend,  :)
Really, I missed you.
First of all, I want you to know that I only tell you about here as it is in my head without any deviation as if I tell my friends here and that's because I trust you and your thinking.

I'm totally with you. There are many Muslims do what you've said.
It's my luck that I've been raised in a city that most people are better than me or like me in religion. And what I told you is from what I've seen here.

Regarding their right to do this >>  They can do what they want but believe me, it's in the nature and the instinct of people here that they can't respect who does that like others who don't do that. It's just feelings not illegal in law or something like that.
I don't hate them, but I wish they know as I've known !!  >> To clarify this, Our prophet was hurt by his people when he asked them to worship only Allah and let Idols, however, all he said to Allah praying "Forgive my people, they don't know"

OK, but I want you to know that I have been raised like anyone >> Example, I wasn't praying until 18. And I didn't enter mosque except for Friday.
Now, I'm not perfect. I do a lot of mistakes, but I do my best !!
Most of what I know about my religion is after that from Friday speech.
What I've concluded about our religion is that it's treatment, good manners and asking good for others. >> Our prophet said that "Religion is treatment".
I tell you that to give you a hint about our reactions towards any event.
The society that I live in is almost like me, so it helped a lot.

BTW, I want to clarify something, I can't tell about myself that I'm good in something. If I'm so, that's because of Allah who helped me and I ask him to continue.

the only thing I have a problem with is the forcible imposition of any beliefs, customs or practices on anyone -- religious, political or whatever.
I know, and there isn't and will not be any law which impose anything forcibly.

After all of that, I want you to know something that may make things more clear for you.
Allah has forbidden Alcohol <as an example> gradually, first he said that it's bad and makes you do bad things and then, he said that you don't pray just after drinking until you know what you're saying and finally, he said that if you love Allah, don't drink it. So, graduation is a rule in anything.
And there were people drinking it during the period of our prophet after it has been forbidden and he said about one of them that he loves Allah and his prophet, but he is weak.

So, I want to say that who ordered us <no forcing> is Allah not law. And I think it's pride to obey. It's not shame to prevent yourself from doing a few things that the one who you love ordered you not to do. That's what I believe and I'm not talking about imposing any law.
Another thing you should know, our religion is not trapped in those forbidden things. As I told you before, it has more urgent priorities according to circumstances. So, no one is talking about those things.
That is just information that may make things more clear.

Be well, happy and safe.

Something very important to keep in mind. Nobody is "better" than anyone else, we are all different. Want an example? Einstein was thought to be one of the most brilliant minds that ever existed -- but in history he was a total idiot.

I understand it now. It's not so much a religious or legal matter, it's a cultural thing. Now it makes perfect sense. And of course, all the better if it's not written into law. Incidentally, Mohammed's quote was also stated by Jesus (I learned this in school).

I am perfectly familiar with the fact that Islam is a religion of peace and tolerance. But as the old saying goes "the righteous always pay the sinner's wages". Bad people committing crimes in the name of religion have historically created problems for those who prefer to worship in peace and respect others -- and don't think for a second that this logic applies only to Islam.

I know, and there isn't and will not be any law which impose anything forcibly.

May Allah hear you! It's one thing that something not be culturally acceptable, but when you write it into law, that's bad. If a government can prohibit one thing, what's to stop it from prohibiting more and more things?

So, I want to say that who ordered us <no forcing> is Allah not law. And I think it's pride to obey. It's not shame to prevent yourself from doing a few things that the one who you love ordered you not to do. That's what I believe and I'm not talking about imposing any law.

That is just information that may make things more clear.

I still believe what Allah meant when He told Muslims to <for example> avoid alcohol, is mostly to avoid that horrendous drunkenness which does nothing more than cause harm to society, family and oneself. I don't think he's be upset if a Muslim had an occasional beer or glass of wine, at all time avoiding negative or damaging behavior.

Take good care,
Humbert

Hello Humbert,  :)
I'll explain something regarding law,
If every individual in the government is trying to impose Sharia in law <This isn't happening now>, he can't impose it as it was during the time of our prophet Muhammad <Peace be upon him and all prophets>.
He must take graduation as a rule, because he can't change people's life suddenly.
Until everyone here takes all his rights and until every Muslim here becomes a true Muslim, only when that happens, all people here will impose Sharia in law by themselves without any forcing.

No no man.
In our religion, Alcohol is totally forbidden <much or little> and this is so clear in our religion.
If one drinks just one glass and doesn't cause harm to others, he now causes harm to himself.
And also, we are ordered not to cause harm to ourselves <It's one purpose of our religion>.
Another thing, Allah is the one who has created us and he is the only one who knows what is good for us. However, everything we do is just arguing and saying why and why not. And since he created us perfectly, we are not free to cause harm to our body <saying we are free>. No, we are not free in this because we didn't buy or create our body, so it belongs to Allah and we must protect it.
This is what we believe and I was just explaining to make it more clear.

Be safe.  :D

That terrific! It's great that there is and probably won't be some sort of "Islamic Republic" in Egypt where forced Sharia law reigns supreme (like Iran or Saudi Arabia). If someone wants to impose Sharia law upon himself, that's entirely his business and no one has the right to tell him he can't. In all countries, the government's only role is to prevent harm that one person might do to another. After all, the swing of my fist must stop where the point of your nose begins.

You're correct. I was "misled", curiously by an Islamic friend (he is Libyan) who used to visit me on business when I worked. I also like to question him, as I do with you  :). In any case, one night I was bored and decided to visit a night club, just to have a drink or two and maybe talk to someone. By pure chance I found my friend there, and he even invited me to have a drink. I told him "doesn't your religion prohibit that?" -- he just shrugged his shoulders as if saying "so what" or "not a problem". To make matters worse, it was a Friday night and he even told me he had visited a mosque a few hours earlier. I had no idea there were even mosques in Miami, and he explained there were 4 of them.

I should have also remembered an episode I saw of the TV show "Muslims in America". In it, there was going to be a wedding -- he was Muslim, she wasn't, or maybe the other way around. In any case, when the 2 families got together to make the arrangements, the Muslims insisted that there be no alcohol at the reception. The Christian family, in respect to their beliefs, agreed.

The internet has an interesting history. Anyone who's curious I'll tell them much more about it.

Anyway, to answer Shadow's question, there's something you must clarify -- do you mean commercial ISP (i.e., obtaining a fast internet connection and reselling service), or ISP in general. If you mean in general, the answer is the US Department of Defense. Briefly, they put together what we know today as the internet without having the slightest clue it would one day rival the wheel as one of man's greatest inventions. And it all started as simply someone's idea.

OK. The internet's history goes something like this. I know because, unlike many of you, I lived through most of it.

Let's go back to 1964 and the mindset that existed in America at the time. The threat of nuclear war with what was then the Soviet Union was quite real, and taken very seriously at the highest levels of the US government. Then, one guy at the Rand Corporation (a major defense contractor) has an idea: what if we created a network of military-only computers, but did in in such a way that it would be totally decentralized? In other words, there is no "head computer" anywhere -- if one were taken down the rest of the network would keep on going, plus the fact that any new ones could be brought out of bomb shelters and promptly reconnected. They could also be moved around and relocated. Such a thing would make it extremely difficult for the enemy to take out our central command, whose existence would be critical in order to coordinate both defense and counterattacks. The guy shared his idea with others at Rand, they liked it and took it to the top brass. Finally the Defense Department bought the idea and ordered Rand to proceed. Not even remotely did anyone suspect they would end up creating what for ruling authorities would become a Frankenstein.

After 5 years of research and development (hardware, software, communication lines, etc), finally in 1969 the ARNAPET (acronym for Advance Research Projects Agency Network) went on line with 4 computers, all in California. History will record that the very first characters transmitted over what we know today as the internet would be the letters "lo" -- as they tried to type in the world "login", the first 2 letters went through, when they typed "g" the whole thing crashed! Clearly much more work was necessary.

By 1972 many errors had been solved and there were now 15 computers on the network -- and counting. As time passed and more computers were added, lines expanded and software improved, the dreaded nuclear war this system was designed for never came, so the people who tended the computers simply used the system to gossip and establish "newsgroups" to discuss all kinds of different matters. The Department of Defense had no objection given the fact that, if the war did come, it was imperative that people knew now to use the system. What's the point of spending all that money to build a system nobody knew how to use in the middle of nuclear missles falling?

Fast forward to the 1980's. Gorbachev arrives in power in the USSR and the chances of a nuclear strike diminish even further. Finally the government decides to open up the system to scientists at universities for them to discuss their findings freely, even allowing those universities to hook their own computers to the network. At first only few people had accounts, but as time went on that number began to increase at an exponential rate. Finally by the end of the 1980's, the government decides to "demilitarize" the ARPANET and let anyone get on. This lead to a worldwide explosion of computers on it, plus more lines, software, and what have you. I'm not sure exactly how the word "Internet" came about, but I think it's got something to do with "network of networks".

I first got on in 1993 when there were few ISP's. I remember the whole thing was text. You dialed into a Unix workstation and issued commands, meaning you had to have a working knowledge of Unix, which I managed to learn. About 2 years later the GUI we use today came and eventually completely replaced the Unix shell, which now made the Internet "user friendly" as opposed to something only a computer nerd would enjoy. With this and now that the thing had gone commercial, it simply exploded and would soon touch almost every part of the world.

This why I am not so afraid of these internet restrictions. From its inception this was a system designed precisely to make it next to impossible to destroy or stop. Those people back in the 1960's unwittingly let the genie out of the bottle, and there's no putting it back now.

Not a problem. Maybe some of my factual details might be slightly off, but generally this is what happened.

The reason I gave this detailed explanation is precisely to explain the reason I firmly believe governments legislating the internet is a battle they have no chance of winning. From its onset, the network was designed not just to be impossible to fully destroy, but also with high flexibility and as many workarounds as possible. Even in totalitarian states where ISP's are banned, it is still not impossible to get on the network if you have the know-how. Of course we all know that, given that so many companies worldwide do business on the net have friends in high places, banning ISP's is simply out of the question. My favorite example of all this is TPB. Not even the imprisonment of their founder in his native Sweden had deterred it. They restrict it one place, in hours it's back as something else. Reminds me of someone trying to kill an army of ants with a fly swatter.

And speaking of TPB and the rest of the torrent sites, could anyone enlighten me on something? How exactly do these guys make money? Keeping the system up isn't free, and few if any sites ask for donations. I wonder if they do it by selling ads that my adblock plus add-on won't let me see -- which is transparent because I wasn't going to click on them anyway.

Well, you've been here recently but I'm starting to like you already :). I too have learned quite a bit here, am I happy to say I've made some close friends, and almost all from very different countries and cultures (to me, this is great). Incidentally, to my knowledge we're all guys. If you're looking for hot babes, stick to the social networks. Most girls tend to be less geeky than we are and usually stick to those sites where than can communicate with someone, play games etc.

LOL I'm not looking for hot babes, it's just that I belong to their sexual orientation. I think I'm just geekier than other geeky girls.  8)  It's good being around guys, I can do or say things that I'm not able to around the same species. I'm looking forward to a long geeky relationship with you, guys, here in this forum.

Welcome aboard too, Alex! Where exactly are you from?

As for the OS, is your system strong enough to handle Windows 7 64bit? If so, I strongly recommend it. If you're stuck with ann older computer and have no option to upgrade, may I recommend XP 32bit? Our Chief uploads his latest releases to the Pirate Bay - and you'll find them on other sites too. It goes without saying his releases are rock solid and highly recommended. Naturally you can also download and install a distro of Linux - it'll get you on the forum just as easily. Just pick your poison.

Naturally if you're not sure, simply tell us what system you have and we'll be in a better position to recommend something.

Hello, I've done this a bit backwards but none-the-less. <Wave> I posted over in the Windows forum first and then finally set up my profile. THEN I decided to check on the other members here. It is a very striking demographic. On a world wide basis the predominate age group here is the 20's...except of course the old man Maher <poke>. Back in my day, 30 was considered "over the hill" but I know our modern society now doesn't classify you OTH until you are 40. Have no idea what that makes me at 60 ROFL! Antique(ish) I suppose. Did see one older than me tho..believe his name is Edvaners @71. Howdy :) glad I'm not alone!
 
Interesting hypothesis: 1.) The majority of torrent savy individuals are from the younger generation.  2.) The older generation doesn't trust and/or is fearful of the legal/moral aspect of torrents.  3.) The older generation just doesn't know about them or understand them.
 
Myself: a bit of a rebel, curious, and still want to learn. Many years ago (in 2000 I believe) I tried a few torrent downloads and either didn't install them correctly or they truely were infected -- blue screened my whole computer -- spent many sleepless nights restoring and cursing. I decided it wasn't worth it. Recently I ran across a publication "Torrent Freak" and started following the articles and news. Naturally I felt the rebel begin to really resurface as this was just one more insult heaped onto the numerous insults/censorship/controls we have all been increasingly subjected to in the last decade.  I'm determined to learn as much as I can and "share" as much as I can. Hopefully, I will learn alot from the quite knowledgeable people here.
 
Thank you Maher for your work in bring this together and providing such clean torrents. You set the standard that I hope everyone will aspire to (I'm sure that isn't likely as there are just mean people out there) but the tools are at least available now  to check files better....and I've learned alot about backups!!!
 
I need some direction atm. I wish to install Windows 7 64bit but have many programs for 32bit only. I believe I can partition my drive and have both but need to check on that. If someone would point me to the correct forum to begin searching or discussing I would certainly appreciate it.

but have many programs for 32bit only.
Don't worry 32 Bit programs work on 64 Bits. After installing 64 bit OS you will notice in your System driver that you have 2 Program Files folders -> Program Files & Program Files (x86)
Your 64 bit programs will install in Program Files & 32 bit programs will install in Program Files (x86).

Any more queries are greatly appreciated. :D

Hello lowla. I join my colleagues here in welcoming you to our world. Something tells me you're going to learn an awful lot from us, and naturally we'll learn from you.

One of the things that makes us great is our diversity. We represent many cultures, beliefs and nationalities, and yet we are one. Chronological age means absolutely nothing to us. We are minds first and foremost. Chronologically I'm over 50, but mentally I'm as young and anyone else -- and I refuse to grow old! We all know that learning is a lifelong quest, and accordingly we endeavour to learn from each other and pass that knowledge on to all who are interested. Feel free to ask any question you have on your mind, even if it's not computer related.
 
Interesting hypothesis: 1.) The majority of torrent savy individuals are from the younger generation.  2.) The older generation doesn't trust and/or is fearful of the legal/moral aspect of torrents.  3.) The older generation just doesn't know about them or understand them.

Many people to whom you refer are fearful simply because they are unaware of the facts. Indeed, ignorance is the engine behind fear. The vast majority of torrents you pick up, pirated or otherwise, aren't dangerous. Also, never for a second think the powers that be don't know about sites such as the Pirate Bay. They know all about them and they know that trying to stop this is is basically futile - they don't have enough jails to house all of us. Their only hope is that instilling fear will put a dent in their efforts, but if you're armed with the fact, you'll see their arguments are laughable. Have you checked out the Pirate Bay? If not, do so - you don't even need an account to see what's on there or leech anything. BTW, if you leech, seed and share  :).

The fact that you were wise enough to educate yourself as opposed as opposed to just giving up says and awful lot about you. I need not tell you it's important to learn from your mistakes as opposed to cursing. We are all here to educate you further. I'm not sure what you mean concerning "insults/censorship/controls" or whether it simply means you've been hanging around with the wrong crowd. Rest assured there'll be none of that here. I suppose one of the few rules the chief has imposed is the use of English or, if another language is used, to post a translation. This rule makes perfect sense given the fact that we're all from different cultures and must have a link language if we're to communicate. We all know that English is the de facto link language of the world.

Thank you Maher for your work in bring this together and providing such clean torrents. You set the standard that I hope everyone will aspire to (I'm sure that isn't likely as there are just mean people out there) but the tools are at least available now  to check files better....and I've learned alot about backups!!!

Our chief (as I affectionately call him) is truly a fine man and, although we've never met him personally, I'm honored to consider him my personal friend and, yes, my brother. However, rest assured he's not the only source of clean torrents. On TPB you'll notice that beside some uploaders there's a skull-and-crossbone symbol. Mouse over that and you'll see it means "trusted uploader". Also, before you leech anything click on the file and read the reviews. If something's not right - you'll know.
 
I need some direction atm. I wish to install Windows 7 64bit but have many programs for 32bit only. I believe I can partition my drive and have both but need to check on that. If someone would point me to the correct forum to begin searching or discussing I would certainly appreciate it.
 Enough said for now. Glad to be here and thanks :)

Our friend Bladeshark explained the deal with the 32bit proggies, so you should be OK. There is absolutely no question that 64bit computing will supplant 32bit in the coming years, which is why I strongly suggest 64bit if your computer supports it. Will you be needing an activator? If so, I posted a link for my favorite, w7xle. This thing activates both Office 2010 and Windows 7, and it's never failed. Here some people have downloaded it - so far no complaints.

I'm glad you're here. Something tells me you're going to be an asset to us, and we welcome you to our little family. ;)

PS: Before I forget, a question I ask everyone out of simple curiosity - where do you live (city and country)? A response is by no means mandatory, it's just so that we'll all know what part of this planet you represent.  :)  Also, if it's a small city no need to tell us where it's located, we can just open Google Maps on another tab and find it immediately.

Hello everyone!
I am Reynaldo, 20 yrs old., SINGLE (Any available out there? LOL)
Well I'm from Philippines.
I am a Civil Engineering student but I dont know, a bit of my interest was into the cyberworld.

And, btw, are you a bot? Sorry for my suspicious question, but it looks strange for me, you are logged here for a long time, and it's deep night on Philippines now, and your messages with equal periods of time between them... Tell me please, how many of 0,5-liter-bottles of 4% alc. beer is equal to "stopka" (50 grams) of vodka by efficiency?  :) ;)

Husam: I found you on the map. You're not too far north of Al Mahallah Al Kubra, which is where Ahmad hangs out. Let me ask you (and Ahmad) something - is Cairo also known as Al-Jizah? I'm asking because as I backed up Google maps to see where Mansoura was relative to everywhere else, I tried finding Cairo but found a big city named Al-Jizah. I moused all the way down the Nile to the Aswan Dam and no Cairo.

cod3.d3m0n -> There are just 2 other filipinos here. Katana and... what's his name? Somehow I feel we can rule out Katana as the one who referred you. There's only one guy left -- he's a little strange, but otherwise he's OK.  :)

No, dear !!
Cairo is another big city [The Capital] next to Al-Jizah, and it is called Al-Qahirah in Arabic.
You can check Here (http://maps.google.com.eg/maps?hl=ar&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.&biw=1024&bih=651&q=cairo+google+maps&um=1&ie=UTF-8&hq=&hnear=0x14583fa60b21beeb:0x79dfb296e8423bba,%D8%A7%D9%84%D9%82%D8%A7%D9%87%D8%B1%D8%A9%D8%8C+%D9%85%D8%AD%D8%A7%D9%81%D8%B8%D8%A9+%D8%A7%D9%84%D9%82%D8%A7%D9%87%D8%B1%D8%A9%E2%80%AC&gl=eg&sa=X&ei=58otUPzmCtDysgbur4GoDA&ved=0CAYQ8gEwAA).

@aa1234779 - you mean there are captcha prompts for posts? Quite honestly I had no idea, in fact I've never seen a captcha prompt since the first day I got here. Maybe you should take this up with the Chief. I and the other moderators can't make any changes until he gives us the green light.

@topdog - Who said you don't know anything about computing? In all the time you've been here you come across as a very knowledgeable guy.

Yes, I found you on the map. You're not very far from the famous Line of Control between India and Pakistan. I'd imagine you have a cold climate typical of high places.

As for me, I was born in Cuba and moved to the US for political reasons at an early age. I lived in Miami (Florida) for many years until I relocated to San Antonio (Texas) which is where I am now.

Regarding your use of Arabic, certainly I envy you for speaking it. Still, as I see it the fact that you're fluent in that language has no bearing on the fact that you're a Muslim. Not all Muslims are Arabs and not all Arabs are Muslim. Indeed, the largest Islamic country by population is nowhere in the Middle East nor is Arabic an official language there. I refer to Indonesia.

Is your city indeed located in the mountains and, as such, with a cool climate? I know I could look this up, but I'm just being lazy  :)   Also, although you were not alive at the time, do you know if your city was captured by India during the war in 1965? I know they invaded Pakistan up near Kashmir, I just don't know how far in they went.

Something else. How prevalent is Arabic is Pakistan? I know the official language is Urdu and that English is widely spoken because you guys were once part of British India and, of course, because of the internet, but I don't think English is official (correct me if I'm wrong).  The simple fact that Urdu uses the Arabic alphabet nor the fact that the Qu'ran was written in Arabic mean that Muslims (Pakistanis in this case) have to learn it. What's the story here?

Hard to find good warez? Excuse me? Good warez are as plentiful as nitrogen in our atmosphere! I learned the UK government had put some restrictions on sites such as TPB. Believe me, there are many ways to skin a cat. Restrictions such as this don't work, have never worked nor will they ever! You don't have to pay for a VPN either.

What a welcome LOL

You show me a VPN that you can DL a torrent with for free with great speed and ill eat my hat , as for my ISP you don't know anything about it so don't come across as though you know it all and when i say good wares sites Im correct because most site just copy and paste from other wares sites full of Trojans and adware and Believe me !! I know what im talking about .

Anyway this may be a great way to get to know or intro your self on a small forum but if you joined my forum or even spoke to me on my software i wouldn't be so rude and big headed as you have been to me and i bet others .

Take it from a wise guy like me , try to treat you guests with alittle more respect and read into what people say instead of just trying to be smart .

Thank you for your reply but it wasn't really good enough .  :D

As you would see in my Project you can never express yourself with just text alone in chat so come and visit me ,google VoiceChatAlpha and we can chat about VPN all night  lol

I don't know what kind of mindset you have that somehow you interpreted my comments as some sort of personal attack. Nothing could be further from the truth! Anyone here can tell you that rudeness to other is not a part of me. The simple fact that I might try to come across as facetious is never to be interpreted as an attack. In fact, everyone know I more than welcome any polite comments informing me that my facts are incorrect. If that's the case, I'm the first one who wants to know.

If you don't believe what I'm about to tell you, then take the matter up with torrentfreak.com, which is where this information came from. In order to download all you really need is to get your paws on the actual torrent file. Once that's done it's clear sailing -- there is no need to use either VPN's nor hide behind proxy servers. The reason is the simple fact that the torrent comes from a vast swarm of individual people, something no ISP can block. To quote the above mentioned site, "have torrent - will download". If a situation exists where the ISP throttles torrent downloads, then under µTorrent go to Options -> Preferences -> Bittorrent and set Protocol Encrytion to "Enable".

Prevyet, Ni Hao, Aloha and hello! I am China Mike. I am not Chinese, but I lived there several years. I now live in Hawaii. I taught ESL in China, and before that I taught basic PC skills in six US states. I now live in Hawaii and I still do some teaching on the side. I hope to return to Asia as soon as I can sock away about $2K! :)

I enjoy the internet and learning new things. I have been using Linux for about four years now. I have recently been using i2P and find it interesting. I also use FoxyProxy with my Firefox so I won't get busted downloading torrents! :D

Finally I would like to say I am getting better at maths because of the "verify" boxes at the end of posts! :P

Btw, he is right, today there is so much good warez sites, that you can "trample them by your ***". :) If you can't connect to them from your city with your ISP, then, maybe that's mean that ISP is bad?  ;)

Hello Mike! It's a pleasure to have you and get your precious input. You said you're not Chinese but have lived there. Out of curiosity, you're American, right? If so, what's your lineage? As you know, all Americans trace their roots elsewhere. I am originally from Cuba.

I enjoy the internet and learning new things. I have been using Linux for about four years now. I have recently been using i2P and find it interesting. I also use FoxyProxy with my Firefox so I won't get busted downloading torrents! :D

What distro of Linux to you use? I personally had Ubuntu installed on my 2nd drive then changed it to Linux Mint (Cinammon) which I like better. It's definitely a great OS, the big problem is, and I'm sure you'll agree, that nowadays getting completely away from Windows is virtually impossible. Also, why do you believe you'll get busted for using torrent sites? Do you mean at your job or what?

Finally I would like to say I am getting better at maths because of the "verify" boxes at the end of posts! :P

Hi Daniil,
I do not like the U$ companies, but still I am not a "comrade", this word carry more meanings than I really believe in, anyway, I do not know any one who like to bay for software!!, if this is "comradism" then it is OK to me :), I am in your party ;)
Title: Re: Introduce yourself
Post by: Daniil on November 05, 2012, 12:04 PM
@ salaah
In that phrase "comrade" means friendly and respectfull relationship to the person.   :)
I know, that for many people "comrade" sounds like something about kommunizm. But look, the communism is in the past and it leaves only a knowledge about its failures and some strange but beautiful words and therms. ;D
I use that word because it is more friendly than cold english "sir", but more careful and correct than "friend" ("friend" may sounds as familiarity and may be improper, for example, to the elders).
And - he-he  :D -  also because word "komяade" sounds very "Яussian".  ;D ;D ;D

And - tell me please, what is correct, polite and friendly appeal to stranger in Iraq?

Post by: salaah on November 06, 2012, 05:24 AM
Hi, Ahmad, Daniil and everybody

Daniil, I totally agree with your principle in choosing the words, especially for this forum use, If I would find the sience fiction "time machine" then I'll go back to the time when languages where invented and add a word that mean "remote friend" since it will help the humanity when they will invent the networks later.

Also, since  it is all about introducing people in this thread, I want to tell you something that might look strange to you, in most Arab countries, they say to a stranger "brother" which is more friendly than just "friend", a more strange also is that in countries like Egypt you can expect very personal subjects to speak about with someone whom you knew just an hour ago. But, be careful  in Baghdad .. they will give you even more emotions in the first meeting and they will call you "brother" or even "hey, my eyes" or "my soul", but you might get hanged or shot for nothing if you say "comrade", believe me, this word here is a crime by itself, this is because the old regime of Saddam used its Arabic translation "Rafeeq" to say this person is a "member" in the party, but now, because the Shia are ruling, if you accuse someone of being a "comrade", then he might get killed without a question, alot of people used this word to get rid of their opponents, most Arabs that lived in Iraq before where terminated by this word, especially the Palestinians, even if they are innocent.

and Yes Ahmad: Ahalan Beek (Your also welcome), where do you live?

Hi Ahmad,

I was just watching the youtube, I felt interested to see the new president explaining a phrase from the quran, I remembered the old explanations of Mubarak and Sadaat when they reached the damn chair, they where speaking even better -since they had only needed to speak-, "Bin Mursi" was speaking in a way that made me think he is just another one who speaks better than doing, and he does really bad, he reminded me with an Syrian song that translates: "chairs sit on chairs, a corrupted goes then a cruel comes". I wish I am wrong, I wish all the best to the simple, sweet heart, best laughing, and most "alive" Arab people; the Egyptians, I hope you will do better than us in this fight for justice.

If I will squeeze the Iraqi experience and give it in few words to the people who have just came out from revolutions, I tell you: Just kick the Americans and their allies out and you will be fine, even the devil personally cannot hurt worse than someone who follow the Black house.

I am thoroughly familiar with the horrendous job done by this idiot Bush and his cronies after the occupation of Iraq began, even to the point where they ignored advice from their field commanders and continued with the stupidity.

Before I ask you anything, first I'd like to know if you're Shi'a or Sunni. Also, what Iraqi city do you live in?

What the hell are you doing putting a 12 year old operating system on a computer that (according to the specs) can run an Intel i7 processor? It sort of reminds me of my aunt when my uncle bought her a full-fledged radiation-convection microwave oven and all she did was boil water in it. When I asked her, she said she "didn't understand it".

That computer can run Windows 8 and fly like a rocket, much faster than XP any day.

Are there still XP drivers for that?
Title: Re: Introduce yourself
Post by: atticus on December 23, 2012, 10:36 PM
Yea, XP works pretty well on it. The main reason I use XP is because it is a school assigned laptop like I said and my school is dumb and they downgraded the system to Windows XP. They even left the Windows 7 sticker on the laptop.
Title: Re: Introduce yourself
Post by: humbert on December 25, 2012, 12:14 PM
Dumb is an understatement - it is the ultimate in stupidity! What makes it even worse is that when they bought the laptop, they paid for Windows 7. It's a little like paying full price for a Cadillac and continuing to drive an average car.

To take a laptop such as the one you mentioned and put XP on it isn't something the average guy can do. One thing they must do it chase down drivers for just about everything assuming they're still being written. I wonder how they even obtained the proper SATA drivers for installation. Being a school, they can't exactly turn around and download Maher's release from TPB - they have to do it legally. Since these people don't know which way is up, clearly they must have paid a programmer to do it for them. It is a classic example of somebody who simply stick with what he knows and refuses to learn. It reminds of that World War I general who, when the British were first experimenting with tanks, he said this was a dumb idea because in warfare, now and forever, nothing would ever replace the horse!

I wonder if any of these people who refuse to learn know that Microsoft has already announced that support for XP will be permanently discontinued in 2014. No more add-ons will be written nor any future Microsoft software will work with it (Office 2013 will not work with XP, for example). I'm going to have fun with these guys as hackers attack vulnerabilities that MS will never issue a patch for.

Hey, I believe you are a little wrong, I visited when they installed windows in our school computers(everyone gets like a weak of "work" to do in a real business. You just plug the powercord in and an internet cable connected to some computer or something that has ghost, and you can install windows XP/7 on all the computers simply by pressing F11(i think it was) during boot and then select Ghost, and after that  Windows xp, or go to the computers name and then selecting Install.
By the way, when i was there we installed XP over windows 7 machines, and they were still labled with the Windows 7 keys, so i took photo's of like 5 of them if it is something you want :)

I misunderstood you. If we're talking a situation where they at least leave you an option, that's another thing entirely. The bad part is to force people to downgrade and at the same time to throw away the Windows 7 they paid for. From what you're telling me that's not the case here.

@Scarface - do you live in Paris? Are you French? I visited Paris several years ago and I loved it. Everything you hear about Parisians being rude is simply not true. The Metro is terrific. In America there's nothing even close, unless you live in New York. I loved the fact that you do not have to have a car. Here without a car, you're dead.
Title: Re: Introduce yourself
Post by: scarface on February 05, 2013, 09:03 PM
Yes I live in Paris. Still you wouldnt want to live where I live and pay what I pay for the rent. The metro is a plus, thats right and if you are a tourist its useful, but a large part of the suburb is not covered at all.
And thats right, cars are not needed. My 20 year old car has been broken by looters last years, so I dont have it anymore. I live in the eastern Paris, its not as rich as what you see on the postcards.
Title: Re: Introduce yourself

@Scarface - what are you doing up at 4:04am?  :)

Yes, I'm familiar with the fact that the entire European community is expensive. When I went there I bought a complete package with airplane and hotel. I remember the hotel I was in was OK but not really luxurious, and I couldn't believe it when I saw that the price was about 250€ a night!

I didn't just stay in the tourist areas, I went all around on the metro. Sure, some areas are better than others, but I didn't see anything really deprimental like you'd see even here in America.
Title: Re: Introduce yourself

I cant sleep, I have slept from 8pm to 3am. I said I found a job but I wont begin before May. So I sleep when I want. Its raining here so I wont go out. And its cold. For your hotel, its not astonishing. Everything here is expensive. If you want to have cheap hotels you have to go to the suburb. Even if its not far it will be cheaper. There are 3 2 hotels Formule1 adjoining Paris for about 40E a night (http://www.hotelformule1.com/gb/home/index.shtml).

The main thing is to trigger a mental revolution. For example You can ask somebody why he has a car, and if he understands why its useless.
Here is the parisian beltway surrounding paris. Im working at 50 metres of that. I filmed this at 4pm, it was calm, but the flow is relentless and the pollution very important.

There Is only one real modern town in Pakistan, its Karachi. A village a few years ago and now an agglomération of more 10 million. The rest of Pakistan is still médiéval. You deserve better than islamabad gujjar.Go to Karachi or bombay and become a prophet.

Post by: scarface on October 03, 2013, 04:25 PM
who spoke about a highway? Try to think about it, this beltway or ring road, translated by périphérique in french is a urban road surrounding the town of paris. the traffic is too important to make that a highway (its said to be the busiest in europe). the speed is limited at 80km/h but most of the time you drive at 50km/h or 10 when its jammed. at 5pm the traffic usually begins to increase because the people come back to home. One time Ive made a 130km/h on a portion but only a madman or a man who knows what he does can do that, and there are a lot of speed radars in each sense.
(http://paris.tarekshalaby.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/05/parismap.png)

Geographically this horrible thing separates paris from its agglomeration. but this is an important road because you can cross the town without having to enter it, and crossing paris is hard because there are traffic light and its usually jammed. Note that the nearby highways are also limited in speed, for example the a6 you see at the south is limited at 90 then at 110 before you can use it at 130km/h.

Ive imagined something today and Ive made a dream, each one of us could constitute the pillar for an international organisation. Ive made a map with the members whose location is known and realized we are on each continent.
(http://img11.hostingpics.net/pics/587989map.png)
For the tasks I imagined that:
Maher: the boss of the organisation and the webmaster. Hes a well known computer scientist in Palestine.
Humbert: the coordinatoor of the network. His military base in San antonio is a valuable asset for the operations in the US.
Scarface: known as "the strategist". He makes assessment on the feasability of each operation.
Ahmad: known as "the prophet": His knowledge of the Curan makes him a priceless asset to translate arabic into english.
Daniil: His knowledge of the new techniques of survival makes him an ally of choice.
harkaz: He's a software tester and keeps his hideout in Greece.
Shadow.97: he has strong knowledge about computer networks and can be a strong ally for the operations in northern Europe.
Topdog: He's the elder advisor of the committee. He's said to be 130 years old and lives in New Zealand. He's the master for the operations in Oceania.
Usmangujjar: He's the specialist of Asia for the committee. He speak a dozen of langages, in particular arabic, Urdu and Punjabi. He can be a strong ally for the operations in India or China.

And this organisation can save you life. Imagine for example that things are going awry in Egypt. The panic is spreading and the supermarkets are emptied in 2 days. For Ahmad there would be a solution: he could go to palestine because he knows he has a shelter at maher's or at least an advisor or what we can call a local godfather.

Scarface, good idea. But it need more work around a way how to realise it. Also, after your words about "international organization", "saving lives and future", can't hold myself:

I'm flattered my friend.. In the virtual world where our minds meet, it's our thoughts & manners that matter more than our ethnic or religious backgrounds, especially when there is no claim of representation to anything other than myself.

aa1234779 - I'm curious as to why you're reluctant to reveal your nationality. Are you a citizen of one (or more) of the ±20 Arab countries, or are you a person or Arab descent living outside the Middle East? Or are you Palestinian like our leader Maher?

My nationality parallels that of the Arab people. Those of us who are citizens of one of the ±20 Spanish speaking countries have been labeled 'Hispanic'. In my case I am Hispanic, Cuban to be more specific. See?

Your curiosity is welcomed.

A citizen of one (or more) of the ±20 Arab countries.
Very true..
An Arab from the land that was united at a time not long ago and is now divided & torn apart like never before.
Borders & nationalities are variables that were not known before colonialism. The people of North Africa, the Arabian Peninsula, the Persian (or Arabian) Gulf, Iraq, the Levant, the Horn of Africa are all considered Arabs whether they are descendents of Semite Arabs (Qahtan, Adnan, and Ghassan tribes) or not. The diverse & tolerant culture of Islam seamlessly melted all the differences of separate cultures into one that is not based upon color, ethnicity, genealogy, nationality (!!!) or any other factor than this..
The language (or lingua franca) and the core values/principles that formulate an Arab. These have not changed in the majority of the people that have withstood 'much' since the beginnings. That is a constant for no less than 1400 years up to this day.

Check these out:

I agree with you. Thoughts or a 'spirit' of unity also exists within Latin America & Cuba that is somewhat similar to ours.
It's a matter of personal preference & comfort what to disclose. My choice is to be myself & represent what I believe in, as do you & all others out there.
This is me not being contradictory to myself.  :)
Title: Re: Introduce yourself
Post by: humbert on December 09, 2013, 06:43 AM
aa1234779 - thanks for the 2 links. I downloaded the videos so I can view them calmly later.

Just like the Arabs, we too come from all sorts of different backgrounds, colors, cultures, etc.. We have Europeans, Africans, Asians, native indigenous people, etc. I guess the only difference is that our mindset isn't as rigid (or fixed) as in the Arab world, although we too have our set of values.

Not only do I fully respect your personal preference regarding your nationality, but in a way I understand it. I say this because there are some things that I also hide for no other reason than preference. I hate giving out my date of birth and get angry if someone wishes me greeting on that day. Why? Personal preference.  :)

Islamabad is the capital of Pakistan and the richest town per capita. While its superficie is huge, its not a very big town like Karachi or Lahore and its density of population is very small. The town has a lot of parks and really looks like Hollywood. Its name in Ourdou means the city of Islam.
Recently a french restaurant named "à la maison" has opened in Islamabad and provides a french traditional food. If youre Pakistani you have to be accompanied with a foreigner because its food is not halal.

a view of Islamabad. It looks like Hollywood.

I Read That the counterpart Is That the poor people are not welcome in Islamabad. But its something widespread in big towns. And for my belief of an incoming collapse, it wont be easy because the people are not used to living together anymore.
I have searched some information about incomes in towns like Cairo or Islamabad but I didnt find anything, probably because Im not searching in Arabic. Its interesting to understand the social fabric of a town though its usually obvious.
for example for paris You have this:

I noticed we dont see Maher very often. Probably hes busier than before. I was wondering if Ahmad or Maher had children, perhaps to compare myself with them. The guy working next to me has been hospitalized, perhaps it was too hard for him or more probably he couldnt cope with his family life any longer.
Title: Re: Introduce yourself
Post by: humbert on January 06, 2014, 07:48 PM
@Scarface - Maher is a very busy man and his livelihood takes up a great deal of his time. That's why he asked Ahmad and myself to help moderate the forum. Don't think for a second Maher hasn't lost interest. He's very dedicated to his forum and logs on whenever he has a chance.

Maher is married. It's never occurred to me to ask Ahmad this question, but since he's a young medical student, I seriously doubt it. Besides, knowing him, I'm sure Ahmad would be a very dedicated husband and father. Maher has no children and I doubt Ahmad does.

@Ahmad - please correct any incorrect information I posted about you.  :)

The last posts are totally in the topic katana. And what about You? Where do You live? Are You happy in your life? Perhaps those questions are interesting not only me.
I put a few pictures because You will notice the other membres dont do it. But a picture Is much more explicit than words. By the way I dont have to introduce myself, youre probably not interested and the few photos of paris and of the ficus momo show what Im dealing with everyday.
But my questions were remaining without answers. When I have seen the photo of Ahmad, I knew he had a mighty wisdom and That he was someone exceptional. And I was right, he wants to become a doctor and help the others. As for the rest, I already knew it, probably an old-fashioned hunch.

I've never managed to get good tasting tea in my whole life, so I don't even try to drink tea anymore. Coffee however can be really tasty. Especially the Coffee with a bit of Chocolate taste.

Mostly I drink coffee in the morning and green tea in the afternoon. I like both coffee and chocolate, but not together. Also, I hate Starbucks.

I actually like the starbucks choco coffee. I don't know what it's called. But it's really good. Way to expensive to buy it every day. And it's not very common, on a few gas stations but really not enough to find everyday, and actually buy it. I could imagine that it's quite good when it's fresh.

gujjar -> I used to have that same avatar, but somehow it got lost. I'm thinking that happened when there was a problem and Maher had to restore everything from and old backup. BTW, I have a ton of these small avatars. I remember sending Ahmad a zipped copy of all of them.

Of course I will, but please give me a few days. I'm not in San Antonio at the moment, and the files reside on my desktop at home. Once it's ready I'll put the link up. In fact I'll even do it publicly so we all can share.

Im sure Jakarta Is a wonderful town full of history. According to wiki its the second agglomération behind Tokyo. Probably a topic for the photos should be created.
But what I want to see are not birds eye views. I want to see your photos and your comments, even photos of real life, if There are cows in the Street like in India for example...or nothing but cars like here. For example Ive been in the east of Paris (too working class and popular for me) to take some photos of the bastille, a place full of history with the French revolution in 1789. Your photos are beautiful, but Im not surprised to see buildings and cars...
The second photo Is interesting. Is this a recent monument? A simple sentence to describe the place would be interesting. With your avatar I guess You might have been in this Park to smoke and relax.
The most wonderful towns have an history, Ive been recently in bussy st George, a "dormitory town" at 20km of paris in its suburb which didnt exist 30 years ago (a few hundred of inhabitants) and today it looks like an American town of Florida, every building is identical. So, its not interesting to take photos of That.

I found your city on Google maps and I have a question. The Cyrillic spelling is Свилajнац - the final letter in the transliteration doesn't match - ц = ts and c = s. Or is it that the Serbian pronunciation is different?

What is the approximate transliteration of the letter ц ?  We know in Russian it's TS, what is it in Serbian?

[/quote]

for that letter it would be the same translation... but honestly these other letters(Љ,Њ,Ш,Ђ,Ћ,Ж,Ч,З) are hard to translate becouse our Serbian Cyrillic has one letter for allmost every sound you can make when you speak our language...

you can try to write these other letters in google translate and hear them how they actualy sound

It's not uncommon for people to pose as members of the opposite sex online. Guys probably do it to mess with other guys and girls probably do it not to be treated as girls. Anyway, I feel even though gender is public, it's still a private matter so let's respect that and not get nosy. Just saying, 3 people asked already; I'm not Shadow's advocate but I think if she felt like explaining she would've done so already.
