Difficulty also ranges between "smooth sailing" and "Rodeo Country".

Missed the game last night? No worries mate... This site has the goals for you... Also check out the sister site Soccer Clips for some interesting video clips!
Why we love it: - Terabytes of network storage - SATA (Serial ATA) technology for the hard disks - Gigabit Ethernet connectivity - Energy efficient with more than 35% power saving - RAID level 0, 1, 5, JBOD support - Easy web-based configuration - Easy installation and maintenance - Last but not least: It is cheap! What does that mean to you? Imagine this: - All your files including music, movies and other files in one place and is accessible on your ahum-ahum gigabit network (if you have it!) - You don't have to worry about your hard disk crashing. But if it does, you simply take it out and take it back to the dealer and replace it without loosing any data (this is because it is hot swappable with RAID support). - It is fast... So if you are watching a movie from it, you will not see any hiccups.

The Quran is characterized by a unique phenomenon never found in any human authored book. Every element of the Quran is mathematically composed. Because of this comprehensive mathematical coding, the slightest distortion of the Quran's text or physical arrangement is immediately exposed. Nineteen is the common denominator throughout the Quran's mathematical system. To really appreciate this fact, please follow the link and spend some time and try some of the math out! A treat for mathmaticians in Ramadhan :) Happy fasting and calculations!

Do you dowload movies and watch them on your PC and laptop and wished that you had the following: - Enough space on your hard disk to save them on. - A way to play them on your big screen TV without having to burn them on DVD or VCD.

This is a very interesting article I have read in CNN. You can read the whole article if you want, but I have taken the following paragraphs since I found them interesting and funny! Experts do agree that the likelihood of getting caught and prosecuted for stealing a wireless connection probably depends on how often you do it and how you're using it. "The damages are really the big issue," said Hale. "Are you just poking around, checking your e-mail, or are you doing it on a regular basis and affecting this person's bandwidth?" There is also the possibility that someone could have set up the unsecured connection as a trap. Experts say it's possible for the network subscriber to gain at least partial access to your computer, read your e-mails and see the pages you visit if you are using their connection. Any personal information you send online could then be compromised.

I guess Game Over! A 28-year-old South Korean man who played computer games for 50 hours almost non-stop died of heart failure minutes after finishing his mammoth session in an Internet cafe. "Lee" had recently quit his job to spend more time playing games. After he failed to return home, Lee's mother asked his former colleagues to find him. When they reached the cafe, Lee said he would finish the game and then go home. He died a few minutes later.
