New blog

OK, the new blog is up at my new site. Well, at least the location is new, with the exception of the new blog and some videos(!) it’s pretty much the same for right now. It’s at: www.isaharr.com Click here to go there directly. It’s been fun on livejournal, but I like my digs:-) I’ll …

Almost up…

The new site www.isaharr.com is almost up, should be up by later tonight. Some of you might have some problems for a couple of days until the DNS propagates through the systems. I’ll be blogging there from now on, barring any sort of problem:-) Make sure you update your bookmarks as the old site will …

OK, I lied…

I think I’ve been caught in the Easter holiday morass. My new domain still hasn’t been activated. I was hoping to finish this this holiday. Oh well, I’ll let you know when everything is set up. Isaac

Blogging on hold..

But just for a few days. I’m trying to set up my new site, just waiting for my domain to be activated. I will be hosting my blog on my site, so I’ll stop using Livejournal. Don’t worry, I’ll still check in on you guys that use it:-) Anyway, everything should go live within the …

I love technology…

I’m sitting here in Yemen watching a play by play of a baseball game (go Cubs!) over the internet… It’s like a constantly updated scoreboard. They show where the runners are, updated stats, pitch location, etc. It’s quite nice, and the only way I’ll be able to experience baseball over here. Thank God the Cubs …

Women, veils, bluetooth and Yemen

I’ve been meaning to write a bit about how women dress here for a while. A common thought in the west is that men force women to wear what they wear here. I’m sure that there’s a lot of that going on, but I get the distinct feeling that most women here prefer wearing the …

Well, it happened..

It was just a matter of time really. I went to one of the hotels that is close by for lunch. I sat down and waited for 5 minutes or so. Some guys at another table were eating and greeted me as I came in. Eventually, one of them asked me if I wanted to …

Thoughts about moving….

The current guys that have moved in are really unhappy with the accommodations. They are going to move to a hotel near Tahreer at the end of this month. For about the same money, they could have a place with two beds and their own bathroom. I’ve also heard about apartments that are up to …

New web site hosting?

My .mac account is about to expire. When it was free it was OK, but I don’t think I’m going to spend the dough on it. The mail service is slow and buggy and it’s really expensive. I’ll probably switch over to Yahoo mail and find a new service for hosting my site. Does anyone …

Odd day…

Went to the supermarket and while I was there I heard Barber’s “Adagio for Strings” over the music system… Not exactly great shopping music. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the piece, think of the climatic death scene at the end of “Platoon:. Beautiful music, but not what I expect in a supermarket. …
