MOOO-barak to all!
Egypt's Da Man has left. Fled the country to somewhere exotic which has an apt name (Sharm-al-Sheikh? :P). The internet-revolution was successful, but this success is only partial. Only one part is done! Mubarak's departure.
What's left is to see who takes his place, and which policies does he follow. I'm not much hopeful in the current scenario where Omer Solaiman is the one who has been delegated the powers right now, since he has been known to work closely with US and Israel - so no doubt there what kind of policies will he follow.
I just wish the second part of this revolution brings about a changed leader in this great country. A leader who does NOT stuff like "People can stay hungry in Gaza, but they shouldn't starve!"
This lovely statement was said by:
Egypt has been Israel's chief partner in the devastating blockade of the Gaza Strip, which has caused Gaza's economy to be on the "brink of collapse," as a UN spokesman put it yesterday. Suleiman is quoted in a December 2007 cable as wanting the blockade to cause "Gaza to go 'hungry' but not 'starve.'" 80 percent of the people of Gaza rely on UN aid to survive.
So what came back? My data :D:D
The laptop still is in the ''workshop'' and the hard drive was successfully retrieved (hadn't gotten formatted like I was worried it had), and thankfully, all the necessary stuff is lying safely in a USB.
I have learned my lesson! Back up NOW
There is no LATER... now is the word!
So this means :D, that the past 2-3 days of continuous typing has worked and all the GRE vocab is now in the form of a 1285-sentence novel :D waiting to be read (with beyzaari, Im sick of all of them seriously), by me, er, soon.
I really hope this method works out well *anxiously*, and Happy Moo-barak fleeing day to you all :D
