So here we go...
Few words about my family here in UAE: me, my wife, my daughter (2 years old) and my father - in a short visit to the Emirates.
We all decided to go out and spend our last day of weekend somewhere in the city. I have been also scratching my head to come with an wonderful idea and/or addition to dineinuae.com website.
So what I proposed? - to find out a place where I can write an article - this article -, to find a place where my child can play, to have some fun and last but not the least to find a good shopping place for ladies.
It is not a secret that I am living in Sharjah, and I hate the traffic. The first place I had in mind - Ajman City Centre - a short drive against the traffic, but no - this place in another story - we've got to Sahara Mall, in Sharjah, situated at the border with Dubai, in Al Khan area - hopefully I am not doing a mistake pointing these directions.
Since I have put my first step in the mall, I have been looking around to find a coffee bar, where I can sit, relax, write this story and publish it to the net. Yes, a hot spot was the definitive choice. It was the first time when I had to use the internet facilities outside my office, my house, or client premises.
Looking around, an iZone banner distracted my attention and I said: "This is the place. Here we'll gonna sit!". Few meters away, a representation for kids is taking place "Sahara goes X-treme". My father was delighted to get there with my daughter. My wife and me, went quickly there, to that place with a "hot spot" and have the afternoon coffee - The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf. I know, it is late, but I am myself a "night bird".
I pulled out quickly my laptop, powered it up and searching for an available internet connection. My wife ordered for both of us. She knows my choice when I enter a coffee bar - cappuccino with cream. She ordered for herself a cappuccino with ice. Good taste (I have tasted my whife's one). I wished to cancel my first order and get an iced cappuccino, but it was already to late for this.
Familiar voices are going out from the next table - a group of Romanian girls are chatting between them - I will not say what, in fact I didn't pay to much attention to that, girls things, I guess. However, my wife joined them, making new friends. By the way, this is part of Dine in UAE philosophy, a restaurant is the place where people meet and make new friends.
Coming back to the internet hot spot subject, a prepaid card is AED15 per hour, Al Shamil subscribers pay AED6 per hour, provided they remember their usernames and passwords. Lucky me, I know them by heart! So it was easy to log in.
I wish to continue my story, but is almost 1hour since I have started it, my wife came back to me and share the rest of the evening with me. My daughter, my father might wait for us as well...
I hope all readers enjoyed this article. Others should come soon!

Se pare ca dezvoltatorii distributiei Kubuntu au intrat oficial in greva. Ca avertisment, Kubutu.de este inchis din data de 10 aprilie 2006 si va ramane permanent inchis daca nu se va primi nici un raspuns de la Canonical pana pe data de 15 aprilie la cerintele acestora legate de un "financial engagement".
Sper din tot sufletul ca situatia se va redresa si vom avea parte in continuare de o distributie Kubuntu de exceptie ca si pana acum.
In cautarea pe internet de carti "open" pentru software "open source" am dat de Bruce Perens' Open Source Series.
