  1. I've been to Beirut airport a few times, and the parking charges are nothing out of the ordinary. Quite a good terminal in fact. Decent duty free & very generous measures in the lounge.
  2. They've been selling Manx cheese here in Abu Dhabi for a few years now. Also spotted it in Dubai & Muscat.
  3. I use this to convert all my downloads into a nice Apple TV readable format for iTunes. I imagine it'll do the same with DVDs. Tags everything and gets all the cover art etc. No faffing. http://www.southpolesoftware.com/iVI/iVI.php
  4. I wonder where they go their inspiration for their new logo: http://www.du.ae/en/default
  5. Look into jailbreaking it with Cydia. Since it's already unlocked, you've got no major fears with bricking it. Then take a look at some of the Cydia apps and some of the goodness you can get from the likes of sinfuliphone. A jailbroken iphone really gets the most of the device, and can also relieve you of some of the crystal meth iTunes dependency. Take a google gander at devteam, sinfuliphone, installous and cydia.
  6. Meanwhile in Abu Dhabi, Manx cheese supplies continue I'm in Abu Dhabi at the moment. What shop was that in - my friends here want some. Spinneys in Khalidiya
  7. What democracy movement? You mean popular revolt? Erm...another capitalist system. Something similar that sympathises with the business factions in Egypt. What do you think Mubarak represented? You sad, hollow fucker. You have people on the streets fighting for their freedom and livelihood and you comment about F1 GP. I don't think you are capable of understanding these issues. Who rattled your cage? I am not interested in whether or not the F1 GP goes ahead or not! The popular revolt is looking for democracy and I have no idea what you are trying to imply in your comparisons with Egypt? I was pointing out that the regime, despite its friendly face, is still capable of the type of action that the likes of Iran would take! Cant't get Manx cheese in Bahrain. Democracy my arse.

    Snow !

    Looks like I chose the wrong time to come home for a few days... Left Abu Dhabi for the Isle of Man via Dublin on Friday night, only to have the flight diverted to Shannon as Dublin was closed just before we landed. They then bussed us to Dublin on Saturday morning which took 4 hours, which meant I missed the only flight of the day to the Island, so Etihad put me up for the night. Now today it's Ronaldsway's turn to shut down & I've got another night in Dublin tonight. A 12 hour trip has taken 48 hours so far
