العَطَلة: That who has nothing better to do

العَطَلة
pronounced: Atala
means, one who has nothing better to do, like for example, me posting here, or, the anonymous person down there who had nothing better to do than comment there, or, perhaps, even you, reading this right now! (you don't have anything better to do? tch tch tch)
real post.. what are the signs of a real post?
do i have to... give people what they want?
do i have to... tell you what you would like to hear?
paaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!
ah, my friend, then you are truly, a عَطَلة, if you expect me to do that..
i suggest taking one of these 3 times daily:

sooo.. what then? what do i wanna do?
lemme c.. (insert appropriate pause here)


اكوووووووووول.. أكو أحد غيري ديشوف "يوميات أرنوب" ؟


ok, back in english:
i have a computer case right here sitting near me, collecting dust, its owners expect it back by 10pm tonight, fixed and sorted out and everything..
hmmm..
what's wrong with it?
what else? windows!
there's a resource conflict that's stopping the owner from accessing the 'net, happened after i installed a brand-new lan card, on a battered windows OS, now, the norm would be to simply format and re-install the thing.. problem is, as with most iraqis with computers, the owner lost all the driver cds, and now, i guess i'll have to connect the pc, figure out its exact hardware requirements, download the drivers on THIS pc here, disconnect, connect the other one, fix it and b done with it.

all this cuz windows won't identify the lan card correctly. huff.

(i'll try a little trick first, re-install the lan-card on another slot, and see if windows can get its shit together then. if not, then.. ah.)

and so, grasshoppahs, you will be denied my presence for this evening.
or, until i am done with the task at hand, that is.

ta.
