On the recent years, the Global Warming has grabbed so much attention by the international media and governments communities excluding our media (their usual controversial concern is whether women in Saudi should drive or not?!).

2 years ago, I ordered a DSL line to enjoy using internet on my home. Pending on the waiting list for weeks then the mercy has came and received a call by STC to arrange the time to install and setup the service.
