  1. Does anyone know if there are Shia mosques in Seattle? Iman and Zainab do not exist anymore, I want to move there for work, but it seems the shia community is not active?
  2. Surface Pro is light, fits in the bag easily, and nice form factor!
  3. Self Driving cars are going to be great, here in Silicon Valley, you see them regularly. The main problem is that taxi drivers are going to be hurt, and they should start learning new skillsets for tomorrow.
  4. Wait so SABA isn't a good community center to goto? http://www.saba-igc.org/
  5. Thank you everyone! I am moving to Mountain View soon, and this will definitely be great! Are there any Lebanese communities too?
  6. Ottawa is flooded with Halal places, there is a place every few blocks :)

    Trial Programs

    Isn't that haram? It is like stealing a stove from an appliance store such as Best Buy. Best Buy lets you see it, touch it, same with Trial software. Why would you want to steal the program? If you cannot afford to buy it, then try to find a free open source alternative.
  9. If you want to learn how to fix your wireless card, and learn how to properly convert HTML files hosted on disk or web to PDF, then you will have better chance doing that in command line as brother ajam123 stated. If you know how to type in Microsoft World, then you know how to operate a command line interface (CLI). If you don't want to learn how to use CLI, then I would highly recommend not installing any Linux distributions. The reason being, a lot of stuff might still go wrong, for example, wireless not working, sound not working, keyboard layout messed up. Sure you can fix all that using the User Interface (UI), but it would be easier and faster to do that in CLI. If you want to use Linux still (it is a great operating system to learn), it doesn't matter what distribution to use (Ubuntu, Kubuntu, ArchOs, Gento, Debian, Fedora, Cent, Suse, etc . It all depends on taste. It is like Apple vs Oranges. The reason why many people like Ubuntu is because of its large community. That distribution is packed with so much software and drivers, so it is getting quite rare for having problems, but still happens. Some people think that is a bit too overkill because it contains a lot of junk (like me) but that could be fixed during advanced install. But at the end, it all depends on taste. I personally like Debian, Ubuntu, and CentOS (RHEL). I personally like the Gnome interface instead of KDE (but thats my opinion). Kubuntu isn't an option for me for that case. But if you insist using the UI and want help with the CLI, do what brother ajam123 stated, and give us the output of lspci. That will tell us what kind of hardware you have so we can see if your model is supported. TO do that: Open up Terminal application. Should be in the menu.Type: lspci -v | tee hw.txtPaste the contents back here, Then we can help you once we get the results back. Wassalam :)
  10. Well, I have both Windows 7 Starter (came with the netbook) and I installed Ubuntu in another partition for my main operating system. I didn't install the full Ubuntu release, I recommend the netbook edition: http://www.ubuntu.com/netbook It looks pretty, and better to manage with the small screens for netbooks. And it is optimized! Take a look at their features: http://www.ubuntu.com/netbook/features
  11. Salam everyone, Google Chrome has some extensions that you can customize your browser with, and I wanted a extension with prayer times. Currently, there are no Shia calculation methods for prayer times, so I did an extension myself. I would like if any of you could try it out. You would need Google Chrome version 6 to run this extension, you can download it from here: https://chrome.google.com/extensions/detail/ndmbeogingkjkmmkoomnigifmpajmbkc I made it support many conventions (Shia and Sunni), it was quite simple, I used Dr. Hamid Zarrabi-Zadeh calculation methodology explained here: http://praytime.info/document.html ConventionFajr AngleIsha AngleLeva Research Institute, Qom, Iran*1614University of Islamic Sciences, Karachi1818Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), USA1515Muslim World League (MWL)1817Umm al-Qura, Makkah, Saudi Arabia1990 mins after MaghribEgyptian General Authority of Survey19.517.5 It looks like the screenshot below. Please try it, and let me know if it is good all around the world.
  12. I agree, don't use the internet to try to find a roommate, that is a dangerous and risky thing to do. If you want to find a roommate, try to search for Shia mosques in that community and ask them that you need a roommate, that is what some people do in your case.
  13. I think this would be great to have for new people trying to learn how to pray. Educational / Training software for Salat.
  14. If anyone knows the "real" algorithm of finding the time for Shia prayers, let me know. Last I heard, its technically not possible mathematically since its variable based. But if anyone knows some algorithm close enough, send me a private message, and I am willing to make a program for us to use.
  15. Hmm, Windows 7 is not even released (RC will expire in June 2010) and in October 22nd, it will be on Shelves. For laptops specifically, you would need new drivers for different operating system. Its a big leap from Windows Vista to Windows 7 (technical side). Try going on HP website and see if your webcam is supported for Windows 7. One of my computers have Windows 7, and the Microsoft Finger Print reader is not supported (nor drivers) for Win7. It works great in XP/Vista/Linux, but not in Win7. Even Microsoft themselves said it will not be supported in Win7. What I am trying to say, is get the Model # of your Laptop and find the Webcam on HP drivers website and make sure it supports win7: http://welcome.hp.com/country/ca/en/support.html More information about HP and Win7 here: http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/mda/windows7/index.html
