I'm sorry to disappoint you

Sunday, March 27, 2005
Since I got to know about blogs, I’ve been addicted to it and browsing different blogs, and I must say I got loads of information and knowledge out of these blogs.. knew about new things.. and felt people’s experiences.

Then I came back to my blog and thought.. I have that powerful tool in my hands which I’m not making a good use of it.. I’m not adding something new, nor giving people new information, or something interesting to read.. and to be honest, that irritated me a lot, and felt my passivity is getting over me..

Anyways, just for the coming 3 months or so, don’t expect much of that blog, it will only be about that narrow circle of my personal affairs.. if that’s okay with you, then, you are welcome to drop by every now and then.. if it’s not.. then I’m sorry to disappoint you, and see u in 3 months time if I’m still alive.

The Ignorant Me..

Tuesday, March 22, 2005

Umm.. well it has been a while since I wanted to write this entry here.. but I don’t know why it took me such long time.. may be I was busy, may be I couldn’t formulate what I want to write, may be I thought it doesn’t matter what I write here..

But here I am.. finally writing it down.

Think with me.. what would it take a person to discover his/her ignorance.. unfortunately it took me some time to discover that fact.. I never thought of myself as that wise person, nor that ignorant person.

I was happy and satisfied with the little amount of knowledge I have.. I didn’t ask for more.. but it all happens unintentionally.. u come across things u never knew that they exist, or u never knew you would come across them.

Sometimes I think that I do know and understand how life is going around.. but it’s only then when I discover how much I was fooling myself.. and know that I might be the most ignorant person on Earth.

But a final question that I have.. Would we consider ignorance as a bliss?!!

Free Open Source Software and Development Conference

Tuesday, March 15, 2005
Yesterday I attended the Free Open Source Software and Development Conference which was organized with the cooperation of Egyptian GNU/Linux Users Group.

I was amazed to find them a group of young people who are enthusiastic about something, they believed in it and from their belief they got the energy to start and build up that community.

I won’t be talking much about the idea of free source, you would find all the information you want on their

But what I’m interested to tell you about is Wiki.. Ever heard about it?!

Well.. It was the first time for me to hear that term yesterday.. A Wiki is a hypertext or is a website (or other hypertext document collection) that allows users to add content, as on an Internet forum, but also allows anyone to edit the content. You would simply press and edit button on the end of each page and edit whatever you think should be edited, or add another information.

If you would like to have a look on such websites, check

Conferences.. Conferences..

Monday, March 07, 2005
Today I was supposed to attend the last day of the second International Conference on Intelligent Computing and Information Systems (ICICIS).
It’s was organized by our faculty. But unfortunately I overslept and didn't go.

I thought no problem.. I’ve attended it yesterday.. and the benefit was nothing. Thinking about that, brought me to another question.. why do I care that much and attend such conferences, though I know that the moment the session ends.. I remember nothing of what was said!! So why do I attend?! Is it coz I don’t like missing things?! But still I attended, I got nothing, and I wasted my time.

It has been always the case for me.. I don’t know what to choose and what to leave.

But u know.. there is smth else that irritated me in that conference specifically. Our beloved professors made it obligatory for us to attend.. hehe.. they said they are gonna take the attendance there :S
What is that?!! Is it a matter of filling spaces with us and that’s it?!! why make a conference in the first place, and there is no benefit out of it.. what a mentality!!

Sunrise & Sunset..

Wednesday, March 02, 2005

Ever watched sunrise and sunset?! Guess most of people did.. so if u watched it before.. did u enjoy it?! and if u did, why was that?! Did it remind u of smth, does it resemble one of ur philosophies?!

Thinking deep about sunrise & sunset.. found that a sun’s life is the same as that of a human’s life.. how is that?!

Well.. try to go anywhere where people keep waiting for the sun to rise.. let’s say on the beach for example. U would find a lot of people waiting for that newly born sun.. on the other side.. it’s time for the birth of that human, a baby that is. U would find a lot of people awaiting him as well.

Many people r waiting for that newly born.. be it the sun or the baby!

The baby was born.. the baby is growing up.. same goes for the sun.. the sun rose.. the sun is going up high in the sky..

Rarely u could find people who notice either of them in that process of growing. That newly born baby who was welcomed by all those people is now going through his life, with very few people around.. so does the sun.. it’s up there in the sky.. and few are noticing it..

The baby was born.. the baby grew old.. the baby is on his way to departure this life.. so does the sun.

Now, it’s time for the sunset.. let’s go again to the beach.. u would find the same people.. may be less may be more.. but, they r all gathered for one reason.. they r watching the sun going.. same goes for our baby, who became an old human being.. it’s time for that human to departure life.. people who never knew that he exists.. are there saying goodbye..

Delaying my work as usual

Tuesday, March 01, 2005
Don’t have much of a time to blabber.. but still felt like writing smth here..

As usual.. I’ve had a lot to do today.. but done nothing.. wasting my time doing nothing :S

Seems I’m not capable of getting over that habit of delaying my work.. well.. I’ve got an unfinished assignment which I don’t know how to do it.. I really tried.. but as usual don’t understand a thing...

What else.. well.. I’ve got that report that I’m doing with my friends.. it was delayed as well.. u know what I hate about it.. I don’t like that karwata thing especially when there r other people with me.. ya3ny.. when it’s my report.. akarwetha bra7ty.. kolo 3ala dma3’y ana :D.. don’t take that bad image of me.. ana mesh bakarwet 3ala tool.. it’s only when I don’t want to do anything.. wish I’d be getting over that mood soon.

Got to sleep now.. nighty nighty ;)
