Nothing special. I just want to point out that there is 29th in February this year because it is a leap year dudes! So tomorrow will be 29th of February. If your birthday is on 29th, I really feel sorry for you, although celebrating birthday is not a big deal!
Do I make sense you ask?

Some people in Kuwait are complaining about Fasttelco‘s security issues where some users are logging into different account. It started with a forum post that a user is experiencing some problem with his gmail account and logging on different account. That user was able to see other’s information and read his email. Google says that they are now working with Fasttelco to solve this problem.
However, it seems that the problem extended even more and reports are coming that the same problem is happening with Facebook and hotmail. A caching problem in Fasttelco is causing this glitch as the report says.
Fasttelco is one of the few ISPs in Kuwait and was established in 2000. More information about Fasttelco can be found here.
