    Most of you tempers don't know, but today starts the Islamic month of Ramadan. Happy Ramadan to all Muslims.
    (Yeah I'm a Muslim.)
    So uhh... Yeah just wanted to spread the message around.

    Oh yeah and in case most of you don't know what Ramadan is,
    It's a month in a year in which a Muslim cannot eat or drink ANYTHING at ALL until 7:10 pm.
    Then when around 3:00 am comes by, you are no longer allowed to eat.
    Yeah so today was the first day like I just mentioned.
    You do not know how happy I am to finally be able to EAT.

    Anyway, I wish Muslims a happy and easy Ramadan.

    And to non-Muslims, I wish you... well.. have a great day. [​IMG]

    My aunt and cousin is Muslim. Though my cousin doesn't do it since he is 9.

    This is the third year for my auntie so I guess it will be easier for her then the last two years

    and we also wake early before 3am to eat to prevent from starving during the day until 7.10pm.

    And not paying for hardly any food for a whole month = MORE GAMES.

    I am not Muslim myself, but I do wish you all a happy and SAFE Ramadan. I know it sounds obvious, but drink as much as you can at night. I had more than one of my friends hospitalized for severe dehydration.

    Would it be considered cheating if you slept through the day and stayed awake all night (thus being able to eat all you like during your waking hours)?

    It's not really bad man. We drink fluids all night, and work hours are shortened during this month (at least it is in my region, and I'm guessing its in all Muslim countries) .. so people dont stay in the sun that long ..

    Probably the ones that have the hardest times are those who are professional athletes and stuff..

    It's against the spirit of the month and its frowned upon. But not forbidden (afaik) ... but this might work for kids. Adults have something called jobs they have to get to [​IMG]
    besides, we have to pray 5 times a day at a specific period of time, so we have to wake up for that anyways

    1st day : I woke up at 10AM (slept 3hrs.) to install an internet connection when I realize that he used the wrong modem for his line (VDSL modem for ADSL line). It's very hot. My throat is really dry. Back to home at 1PM, I took a shower and spent some time on the internet. At 14PM, I was sleepy, then the DHL guy came to give me my AceKard. Sweet, I've to configure it before sleeping. At 3PM, everything is installed and configured. I felt asleep with my hands on the keyboard with a typing position. At 7PM, I woke up. My throat is now as dry as the Sahara. I look at the calendar, I can start drinking at 8:50PM. What a nice first ramadan day [​IMG]

    The only difficult thing is when it's in summer. The sun rises early and sets lately and no water during the day...

    wow you're in one of those places where sun sets really late .. Hope it becomes easier as the days pass by.

    Over here we start fasting at 3.45am and the sun sets at 6.15pm
