The Duty Fulfillers!

I had tried this test at yesterday, and found out these results. My mind is no idealistic, as per the conclusions gathered by this website, neither I am great thinker...which I might have wished for:P but again how much of a blog represents the actual character of a person or a blogger in this sense?

Please try your blog test here and do post the results.

ISTJ - The Duty Fulfillers

The responsible and hardworking type. They are especially attuned to the details of life and are careful about getting the facts right. Conservative by nature they are often reluctant to take any risks whatsoever.

The Duty Fulfillers are happy to be let alone and to be able to work int heir own pace. They know what they have to do and how to do it.


This show what parts of the brain that were dominant during writing.

Driving lesson..oh not again!

And day before yesterday I went for driving lesson.

Yes a driving lesson, in this world of weirdos it is something I have to go through after every couple of years. It is more than 10 years, since I had my first driving licence. And I have been driving for couple of years even before that, yet whenever I move to a new country, this is something they just ask you to do all over again.
Probably, since I am a Pakistani, so even if I had a driving licence from Dubai, with validity of 10 years, had no affect on authorities over here. So it was either I go back to Dubai, and beg for a letter from the traffic department there, stating that I have no offences or pending fines with the Dubai police, my licence could not be exchanged for a Kuwaiti driving licence, the country where the accident rates are worse in Gulf region. Even though in Dubai, the fines are issued against the car registration but not the driving licence did not seems to bother their Kuwaiti counterparts.

Anyway, I had my first lesson the other day; the instructor was an Egyptian, with very basic command of English, which made things little bit trickier than I thought. The only difficult thing to practise was reverse parking, as for some reason according to him; it is a law in this country to look through the back screen of the car by actually turning your face around while reversing your car! ...well he said I do not need any more lessons but just a practise session day before the driving test.

Let us see, where my love for going through the official process takes me, as in Kuwait you can get all these things done by actually sitting at home, only if you have spent some extra money or you know someone in the department. This doesn't seem to be a good idea for me, as you cannot imagine, I even had my driving test in Pakistan! I am sure that would be a surprise for lot of my Pakistani friends out there: P

P.S: Need your prayers :)

P.S: It took me 20 days of training, school tests, theory tests and about four months time to get UAE 's driving licence!

OMG they did it again!

This was Hotmail they forced us to use for months now. It was developed, worked on, revamped for several times, they sent Beta invites, voluntary sign up which means they tested the new interface quite a lot of times, as you may expect it from a biggest software provider in the world, hosting one of the most popular service called, Windows Live (Hotmail).

As people were getting used to the interface and developed few instinctual habits of using the service, certainly they decided to 'revamp' it again!

The most annoying thing I find in the new interface is, that they changed the location of the top menu!!! Why would you do so? Have a close look at the screen shot of the new interface, if some of you haven't got it yet, believe me they will force it to you as well, soon (I hope!).

Suddenly, there is 'New' button in place of 'Delete'. So, every time I select couple of junk emails to delete, I end up in dialog box for a new email!

And what’s with the colour scheme? Email selected doesn’t change colour, so you wouldn’t know what you pointing at. At interface colour scheme has got very limited and funny colours to choose from.

Now, please tell me why I should not use my Google Mail account as my primary id on the Internet?
