طريقة مجربة لتوفير النقود

Image
تحدثت كثيرا عن أزمة السيولة والخيارات التقشفية التي اضطررت لاتخاذها لتوفير نفقات المعيشة، تحدثت عن توفير رصيد الانترنت، وأيضًا صيانة اللابتوب عندما يتعطل، وأخيرًا تغيير نوع القهوة لنوع أقل تكلفة. هذه المرة سأتحدث عن تدوين النفقات وأهمية هذه الممارسة في توفير النفقات.

Editing blogger blog posts that won't edit!

Image
I had my blog for some time now (six and a half years to be specific), and during that time I experimented with a lot of things, and made some mistakes along the way. Major issues solved One of the things was the a:link that was showing on my blog and I didn't know where it came from and how to remove it, turns out it was caused by coping text straight from LibreOffice writer, then I noticed that some posts had colors and fonts that didn't look like the general blog template, and trying to edit them like you would normally do wouldn't work, and that's very frustrating to be honest.

As I continued digging around, I managed to find a fix for that bug and I will share it here in this post.
First step, identifying the culprit posts The posts that look off are shown on the blog, you can see them and tell that the colors or fonts aren't consistent with the general layout of the blog, it would be a problem if the posts become unreadable due to color matching, and that …

كيفية الشراء من أمازون في ليبيا

Image
كنت قد دونت منذ بضع سنوات حول التسوق الإلكتروني في ليبيا، وطلبت بعض المساعدة من القراء والمدونين. لكن للأسف لم تصل أي مساعدة! وبعد أبحاث كثيرة توصلت لبعض المعلومات أود مشاركتها معكم.
تدوينتي السابقة مغموسة في نبرة من الإحباط وسبب ذلك تلاعب بعض الوسطاء بي وتشويههم للمعلومات – خوفًا من المنافسة؟ أو حرصًا على العمولة؟

How to choose your next Smartphone? My standards!

Image
I'm a guy who had dozens of phones, tons of form factors and companies you haven't even heard of, I've owned it, blogged about it and eventually sold it on OpenSooq for the highest bidder, with that being said, here are my requirements for the next smartphone.

1. Screen size I've been very strict about this point, almost always going for 4.5' screen Smartphones, which was good and also limiting! Those phones are known as mini, usually come with one gigabyte of RAM and don't preform as well as they should, but now I realize that 5' is the least you should go for, and the more screen real estate, the better! Just don't go for above 7' screens, you would look like you are talking into a food tray!

2. Battery power
Who hates having more juice? The more the better, right? Well that's exactly the case, with phones becoming faster and bigger, so does the need for bigger batteries to support all that high tech and some more, without having to sit by the…

المتسللون!!

Image
أي شخص تابع مدونتي لفترة يعرف أنني لا أحب موقع فيسبوك، حسابي عليه له غرضان لا ثالث لهما:
مجموعة المسار اﻷمن، وصفحة المصرف لمعرفة مواعيد توزيع السيولة النقدية.
فقط، لا شيء غير ذلك.

Having a backup plan

Image
I've always been a minimalist person of sort, I hate having things laying around and I always prefer to get rid of things that I don't need, one phone and one laptop seemed like the way to go for ages (If I could get a device that fits all, I would do it), but that all came to a screeching halt one day. A rude awakening  One day I was cleaning my laptop and applying thermal grease, I got carried away and started cleaning the fan forcefully, and before I know it, I broke several blades! It's a long story that you can find on this link, which taught me an important lesson:
Being too minimalist can backfire, big time! Everyone needs a backup plan, be it a backup of your files and folders (you can find a tutorial on how to do an image for windows here, and how to make a Linux backup here), or a backup device to carry on when everything is lost, it's all about creating a balance between minimalism and not affording downtime.

إعداد القهوة التركية على طريقتي

Image
نعم، أزمة السيولة لا تزال مستمرة! هذا ما يجعلني أفكر مليا قبل شراء أي شيء، وأقوم بحساب كل قرش أنفقه بشكل دقيق، كنت قد كتبت عن تركيبي لبوق جديد في السيارة في تدوينة الرفاهية والضرورة، أما اﻵن فسأتحدث عن القهوة.

I've bought a Netbook!

Image
The first post I wrote on this blog was on a Netbook, and one of the most popular posts at the time was about a Netbook, I've had one, I've loved it like a child of mine, and regretted selling it to this day (I still do honestly, I did so much on a computer that isn't supposed to do much!).
You never know what you had until you lose it! Every time I went to a computer store they caught my eye, and whenever someone brings me one of them to fix, I remember the sweet old days with my Netbook, it felt personal and it felt like something I loved to use and create things on.

Browsing through open sooq I came across a Netbook that was reasonably priced, it had a minor flaw (the monitor has dead pixels on one corner, as if the Netbook took a fall), and after a bit of negotiation with the seller, I managed to strike a decent deal.
Later that day, I swapped out the HDD on the Netbook to my laptop, and used the SSD on the Netbook to make it faster, and after installing Ubuntu 14.04, …

An update for my dear readers

Image
I have realized that I haven't posted a single post in August! That's a lot, I mean the month is half way done, what gives?
It's a bit of a reoccurring cycle on my end, I sometimes forget to blog or simply don't have the will to write a new update, despite having a ton of drafts just begging to be published, this time tho, I have a good excuse.

What's happening?
I've been having troubles with my laptop over the past few days, I replaced some things and toyed with others, and needless to say that the result is down right great! The poor thing is showing it's age, and I can't blame it at all, and no! I don't blog from the phone, not anymore.

A little bit of the same old, the power and Internet are playing tag, one goes and the other comes, it's rare to find them together at the same time, and ever more rare for me to feel like doing anything! And yes, the electrical situation is ruining my laptop.



I will be posting in detail about what's going …
