Must Read & How to use the Website Free?]]> https://www.elftronix.com/?p=8643 2019-05-21T07:00:02Z 2019-04-06T12:00:56Z In this post, I’ve had a close look at the famous Ashley Madison brand and what their out of the ordinary dating website really entails.

If you are curious enough, you can “click to this page on Ashley Madison” which allows you to use their site and register an account for completely free!

Ashley Madison

What is Ashley Madison?

Ashley Madison is a popular online dating and social networking service intended for the use of people who are in a relationship or married.

Since it’s launch in 2001, the Canadian company has been re-branded as Ruby Corp. and it’s CEO is Rob Segal. The website has also changed it’s slogan from, “Life is short, have an affair.” to “Find your moment”.

The idea behind the website is simple, and it’s strength is in free accounts, huge number of users and simple interface that delivers on what it promises. At the bare minimum to successfully find matches, you have to inform your relationship status, location, sexual tendencies and write a short description of yourself.

Also, it’s highly recommended to include an anonymous profile picture. Images can be easily blurred or parts like eyes marked out with a color.

The kinds of relationship matches you may find are;

  1. Male seeking females (attached or single)
  2. Female seeking males (attached or single)
  3. Male seeking males (single or none)
  4. Female seeking females (single or none)

You are then free to browse the website and look for interesting profile matches in the are of your choice, as many prefer to use it while traveling.

Is Ashley Madison worth it?

Is an affair worth it is a heavily subjective question and not something I would judge, yet I can definitely vouch for the worthiness of the site.

A lot of niche specific dating sites have become popular because you can;

  • Be honest and go straight to the point.
  • Avoid personality questionnaires that large sites rely on for matching.
  • Save time by quickly finding likeminded people.

And to get the job done, everyone is looking for the most popular site for reliability, good ratio on females/males and abundant opportunities.

For the good and the bad, over the many years of operations, Ashley Madison has been able to reach that. A name that is here to stay.

Ashley Madison in the stats;

I believe the statistics speak for themselves, myself I have moderate experience of any other affair website but neither see reason to venture elsewhere.

  • More than 60 million paid members.
  • For every male account there is 1.11 active female accounts.
  • 5.3 million new members in 2018 alone.
  • Since 2016, they have been required to inform by law, the number of actual users and the exact number of women using their services.

So you can see that they are popular, among both men & women.

How to beat the crowd?

Some have argued that such a huge user base can also increase competition but according to my observations this has increased quality.

To survive in the pack, you need to be the unique self that everyone is and there is no better way to stand out (and succeed) than saying things straight.

You save your time by finding matches faster.

My experience has been largely positive by having that attitude from the start, saying “hey, it’s free. I’ve got nothing to loose’. And it worked.

Ashley Madison Controversy;

It’s a tool and it’s here to stay. Unlike other sites that scam you, we are lucky to have one that is reliable and trustworthy — as a tool.

Emphasis, because as with anything that has such great potential. It will also breed potential for abuse, which is still a much better option than…

Let me share someone’s personal experience of Ashley Madison for a truthful answer how someone may use the website with dignity;

Anonymous writes; I was about 60 years old and retired at the time when I joined with Ashley Madison. Also I had been married for more than 30 years.

I didn’t want to hurt my wife and enjoyed living together with her, so I felt no need to through the trouble as well as pain of a divorce.

But after 15 years without sex, I was simply fed up. While I was able to, I still wanted one more sexual relationship. I wanted it to be an intimate friendship, where I could talk openly, even about my marriage.

Before I started, I thought that my chances of finding such a partner was zero. But it turned out that I succeeded beyond all my dreams. As a result I’ve had more sex in my 60’s than in my 20’s with three wonderful partners.

My first affair was with a woman who had never been married and it lasted for two months. The second affair was a similar length with a widow. As for the third affair, she came from a similar background of a sexless marriage. The latter has lasted for two years now and we hope to be lovers until our death.

The FTC settlement;

In 2016, Ruby Life Inc. which owns the site (former Avid Life Media), settled with the United States Federal Trade Commission (FTC) in relation to allegations concerning their past business practices.

Basically, they were accused of the same thing all swinger sites are doing which is adding fake female accounts to make their site attractive.

Nevertheless, they settled the case by conforming to a court order to publish accurate and real membership numbers, including that of females.

Coincidentally, this has had a positive impact on their business since now they are consider as the most trustworthy social networking service for women and men, who are married or in a relationship.

Further speeding up their growth.

Which countries and languages are supported?

It’s important to note, that while Ashley Madison is available in 53 countries, the website interface supports no more than 15 languages.

Currently available website interface languages are; English, Spanish (Latin America), Spanish (Spain), German, Portuguese (Brazil), Portuguese (Portugal), Italian, Finnish, French, Norwegian, Japanese, Dutch, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Swedish, Hebrew, Korean and Russian.

And countries available for free registration; United States (USA), Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Sweden, Spain, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Brazil, Italy, Mexico, The Netherlands, Argentina, Colombia, Chile, Venezuela, South Africa, France, Belgium, Greece, Japan, India, Portugal, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Peru, Luxembourg, Israel, South Korea, Macau, Sweden, Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic, Turkey, China, Pakistan, The Philippines, Thailand, Russia, Ukraine, Latvia, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Estonia and Crimea.

If your countries is not on the list, then unfortunately the Ashley Madison services won’t allow you to proceed to registration to the website.

These services had problems such as no support for HTTPS or tracking of multiple redirects. Few were only for checking redirection type (301, 302, etc.).

List of IPs used for HTTP header requests:

These are not the domain IPs, but the IP that was actually used to fetch the HTTP header when checking the redirect. List might be updated sometimes.

Here’s an interesting online solution.

In this post, I’m introducing Grammarly, a premier writing enhancement tool.

Enhance Writing

Writing and having mistakes pointed out to you are the two single most basic but important tools to improving your skills in producing text in English.

But quality proofreading is expensive, time consuming and so on.

And then there are the online solutions. But as proofreading is something really difficult to automate, most tools are not really good enough to rely on.

What I consider the best such tool out there is Grammarly.

They have been developing their grammar checker and text enhancing algorithm since 2009 and keep on doing so at tremendous speed.

Let’s face it, only a big company like Grammarly, that can invest millions into developing their software to the cutting edge is going to make it. And they are the only such firm to exist, bridging the gap between it’s competition at increasing rate.

Why to use Grammarly for improving writing skills?

This is no magic bullet, you will need plenty of motivation to get better at writing in English. And some of these features available for Grammarly;

  • Spell checking
  • Advanced grammar checking for context, punctuation, etc.
  • Context based vocabulary enhancement
  • Suggestions for writing goals depending on the style, intent and audience.
  • Support for word processing, web browsers and smartphones.

The software provides all the possible multitudes of automatic writer enhancement in one single tool. And carrying it with you wherever you write, really gets you in the right mind-set for learning English grammar, sentence structure, etc.

There’s loads of other useful features too, but you’ll really need to grab the Premium version of Grammarly to get all the benefits.

Some of my favorites are the plagiarism checker that checks your document against the web and millions of academic texts. Essential in a Google driven world.

And document insights, which measure the readability, uniqueness of your text and how many rare words it contains. It’s just so easy to make your text not only free of grammar mistakes but to enhance sentence structure, vocabulary and more.

What are the downsides of Grammarly?

While the benefits are pretty obvious, there are downsides too and no automatic tool can be perfect as English language continues to evolve.

If your level of English is poor, this is not enough to make you a better writer as you need to understand the corrections that are presented to you.

So if English is your mother tongue, or your English is good enough this might be the perfect tool for your by itself. Otherwise, you’ll need to combine it with actual studying by using textbooks and other online material for learning English.

Or consider enrolling to a writer enhancement program for the perfect companion together with the Grammarly software.

Thanks for reading and I hope you benefited from this article!
All related questions are more than welcome of course.

Please share if possible. Sincere regards, David.

This is not a very secure method (VNC password sent unencrypted) and I don’t recommend doing much anything else on the VPS server. Also, I’m running VNC via command line without having to set up a daemon for automatic startup.

This way it’s quicker and works for as long as the droplet stays up.

HitLeap DigitalOcean

So let’s get started.

First create the DigitalOcean droplet:

  1. Go to create droplet “direct link here“.
  2. Choose Ubuntu 16.04.4 or whatever is ready selected.
  3. Choose the cheapest 1GB droplet at $5/month.
  4. Choose any datacenter region.
  5. Choose any “hostname”.
  6. Click on “create”
  7. Login to shell via SSH as root (connection details in email).
  8. Create new root password

Then go through each command in order:

apt-get update

Update package lists.

apt install xfce4 xfce4-goodies tightvncserver

Install lightweight xfce4 desktop environment and VNC server.

adduser hitleap

Add a regular user named hitleap.

su hitleap

Create a password for VNC (max 8 chars). No need for view-only pass.

mkdir /home/hitleap/Desktop/
cd /home/hitleap/Desktop/
wget -O /home/hitleap/Desktop/HitLeap.tar.xz https://hitleap.com/viewer/download?platform=Linux
tar xf HitLeap.tar.xz
wget -O /etc/init.d/vncserver https://www.elftronix.com/wp-content/uploads/vncserver.hitleap

Download VNC configuration. Edit this if username is other than ‘hitleap‘.

chmod +x /etc/init.d/vncserver

Make it executable.

systemctl daemon-reload

Reload systemctl so it can find the script.

/etc/init.d/vncserver start

Run VNC server.

Please note:

If you run VNC on the default port, it’s likely that bots will try and knock on your door which can result to this error message when trying to connect;

Too many authentication failures

One solution is to only allow connections to the VNC port with your IP address. Just run this line of code as root (change IP to yours);

iptables -I INPUT -p tcp ! -s --dport 5901 -j DROP

Or try and change the port to something difficult to guess.

Connecting to VNC server:

Next all you need is to connect to IP:5901 with your favorite VNC client.

Password is sent in plain text. So use this at your own risk.

Remember to choose “use default config” at first xfce4 startup.

Just double clik on the “HitLeap Viewer” icon on your desktop and you are ready to go. Obviously you’ll need to have create an account previously.

I’m happy to answer any questions you might have?

Hope this helps.

Canon Camera Connect App

While the “Canon Camera Connect” app for iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, etc.) is not a well reviewed application, I’ve found it very good for wireless photo transfer to my phone & tablet once I got used to it, and solved the issue with disconnections.

Here’s how to fix disconnecting transfers;

  1. The trick is to first turn on airplane mode in the settings on iOS.
  2. Then go to the Wi-Fi settings and enable Wi-Fi.
  3. Now select the access point created by your digital camera.
  4. Open the “Canon Camera Connect” app.
  5. You’ll see the photo selection mode on your camera.
  6. Transfer photos without disconnections!

This is likely to work on most camera models that support Wi-Fi connections for image transfer, EOS M, PowerShot, EOS Rebel, IXUS, etc.

For your information; My digital camera is Canon EOS M100, and successfully I’ve used this solution for both my iPhone and iPad.

Did this work for your problem, or any question?
You are also welcome to share your solution, thanks.

Here’s how to find and buy your organic laundry detergents, body care products and other cleaning agents from Sonett with affordable pricing.

Sonett Sensitive

My favorite German brand of organic, 100% biodegradable laundry liquid has long been Sonett which is suitable for babies, children as well as just about anyone health-conscious with or without sensitive skin and allergies.

You are in luck if located in Germany, where you have best availability and lowest pricing in local shops. Outside the country however, it’s often sold in expensive eco-shops online or elsewhere. If you can find the Sensitive series at all.

The best pricing & availability has been on the eBay store’s global version.

Click here to browse through Sonett Sensitive products on eBay.

While I’ve noticed that the situation on available sellers changes from time to time, there are usually several in Europe, and US. So do check that out.

Delivery is usually door-to-door so bigger orders will be more cost-effective.

Sonett Sensitive series includes these products;

  • Laundry Liquid sensitive
  • Laundry Powder Color sensitive
  • Olive Laundry Liquid sensitive
  • Hand Soap sensitive
  • Dishwashing Liquid

And thanks for reading.

How to Buy, Shipping & Store Guide]]> https://www.elftronix.com/?p=7521 2019-05-08T02:47:07Z 2019-03-21T12:00:34Z The popular Amazon store is now official in Saudi Arabia. Get affordable, and fast shipping, cash on delivery, online shopping in Riyadh, and a whole lot more..!

Also, the Saudi version of Amazon is both in Arabic and English.

Click here for the official Amazon in Saudi Arabia

Amazon of Saudi Arabia

In 2019, the e-commerce scene in Saudi Arabia and the rest of the Arabic world has been dominated by Amazon, the most competitive online store brand.

Weather you are in Riyadh, Jeddah, Mecca, Medina or pretty much anywhere else in the country, you’ll likely find the most reliable, equivalent service there.

The official Amazon website, goes with the name Souq in Saudi Arabia.

So there’s no need to pay for expensive global shipping with Amazon.com, or even worse, use package forwarding services that cost a ton.

Here’s a guide on how to really buy from Amazon in Saudi Arabia.

How Amazon works in Saudi Arabia;

The Dubai headquartered Souq is now officially the largest and most popular website for e-commerce in the Arabic countries. The company was founded by Ronaldo Mechor, a Syrian businessman in 2005. But since 2017 the company was acquired by Amazon and has become one of their strongest online shopping brands since.

The site interface is very much similar to Amazon, and one of it’s attractive features is the seller portal which further expands it’s inventory to serve the increasing online shopper population which has become accustomed to world class service.

Useful tip! The Saudi Arabian Souq has a “deals of the day” page, where you can find the hottest deals, every day of the week. Some with free shipping included.

Shipping & delivery services in Saudi Arabia;

The Souq marketplace mainly uses courier services to delivery to your door, and they also support cash on delivery payments with Riyadh, for an extra charge.

Just like when shopping on the US based Amazon, you need to add items to the shopping cart first, and then proceed to checkout which will display the final cost of shipping. Delivery is Saturday to Thursday from 9:00 to 18:00.

Shipping is readily available to cities such as Dammam, Ta’if, Al Kharj, Medina, Sulţānah, Tabuk, Buraidah, Riyadh, Jeddah and Mecca.

Also all of the Saudi Arabian regions can be delivered to (door-to-door); Bahah, Ha’il, Saudi Arabia, Najran, Asir, Northern Borders, Jizan, Tabuk, Eastern Province, Makkah, Jawf, Riyadh, Qassim as well as Madinah.

Language support for English & Arabic

On the US based Amazon, you only have support for English. On Souq however, Amazon has included support for both Arabic & English languages.

See the flag of Saudi Arabia at the top, clicking on it will open up a menu where you can change language and country location settings.

The website is mostly bilingual, meaning that product descriptions, shopping guides and the whole interface language can be changed.

Click here to open the English language version of Saudi Arabian Amazon

Categories for online shopping;

Equal to the Amazon site, you have a broad range of online shopping categories, which include smaller sub-categories inside them. Here’s a complete list;

Beauty, Fragrances & Perfumes, Supplies & Pet Food, Eyewear, Movies & Music, Bath & Bed, Home Improvement & Tools, Office Products, Networking & Computers, Paper money & Stamps, Home Appliances, Home Supplies & Kitchen, Furniture & Home Decor, Personal Care, Toys, Books, Cameras, Kitchen Appliances, Babies, Wearable, Gaming, Outdoor & Garden, Apparel & Accessories, Vehicle Parts & Accessories, Collectables & Art, Fitness & Sports, Electronics, Tablets & Mobile Phones, Jewelry & Accessories and Beverages  as well as Grocery.

Returns and refunds of purchased items;

To battle counterfeit or poor quality items, you can return purchased goods within a 15 day time frame if the items are not as described on the website. This also includes the cost of sending them back to Souq for evaluation.

In other cases, if you simply wish to return your purchase, you can use the same 15-day guarantee to get your money back if the package is left unopened.

Please be aware, that some items have a “non-returnable” tag. And also some categories such as Lingerie, Earrings, Underwear, Swimwear ,etc. is excluded.

And that concludes my Saudi Arabia guide for the official Amazon marketplace.

There are alternatives to Souq in the country, however they are the only real equivalent and similar service. And likely availability & pricing is competitive there.

Have your say in the comments below, or ask questions..!
I’m happy to discuss about Amazon & e-commerce in Saudi Arabia.

Thanks for your kind visit. Sincerely, David.

Nothing to worry about, but you might be interested in knowing that some of the posts, guides, etc. contain affiliate links to support the site. This won’t affect pricing on the other end and helps me out tremendously. Thank you so much.

Read on for more.

Coursera Review

What is Coursera?

It all started when two Stanford based computer science professors decided to provide their classes for free, available online in 2012.

These free courses turned out to be extremely popular, which lead to the creation of Coursera. Now offering high-quality academic classes in partnership with 149 universities around the world.

As of 2019, there are more than 2,400 available online courses and more than 33 million registered users on their online learning platform.

Getting started for free;

Most courses on Coursera are available for free unless you want to earn a degree once your course has been completed — search through free courses here.

There are also specialized courses which are not available for free, however you may be eligible for a 7-day free trial — read more about it here.

Although getting a degree has many benefits and a popular choice among users, it’s easy getting started for free and learn what your potential is.

How Coursera works;

Organized in a similar fashion to university classes, they are broken down into social sciences, humanities and many other categories. With plenty of options, if you are interested in a degree program make sure to do your research to see which institute is backing each course and if it’s accepted by your school.

Usually you’ll have the option to either pay for the degree along with the course, or enroll to the course for complete free without it.

Enrolling to a class gives you 180 days of access to all the course materials, although usually courses are completed much earlier. Besides going through assignments, videos and other course material you can connect with other students on the same class. Once completed you can receive the certificate and start another one.

Benefits of Coursera;

  1. Each course is backed by accredited universities or organizations for high degree value and guaranteed quality course content.
  2. There are classes in more than 30 languages.
  3. Coursera is one of the most established, popular, highly reviewed and trusted online learning platforms today.
  4. Learn on both desktops and mobile devices.
  5. Courses are taught by real experienced professors.
  6. There are many options to complete courses for completely free, or receive a risk free 7-day free trial for premium courses.
  7. Cost of taking courses is much lower than with educational institutions.

If you are interested in the benefits of online learning, I don’t think there’s better place than Coursera to get started and for free.

Items are mainly stocked in local warehouses in the UAE, and can be delivered on the same day, depending on your location by courier services.

Delivered products can be paid for directly at your door with cash on delivery, or COD for a small 1USD, or 4AED (Dirham) fee. A popular payment option.

Just like on the US Amazon store, you need to add the items in your shopping cart and proceed to checkout with a filled out address to see final shipping costs.

The delivery of items is available from Saturday to Thursday, between working hours at 9:00 and 18:00. Available to these UAE cities; Ajman, Fujairah, Al Ain, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, Dubai, Ras Al Khaimah as well as Umm al-Quwain.

And all of these emirates also support affordable shipping; Sharjah, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Umm al-Quwain, Fujairah, Ajman, Ras al-Khaimah.

Languages of the UAE Amazon store;

While on the US based Amazon there is only English language support, on Souq you have availability for both Arabic and English languages.

This is a bilingual setting, which converts not just the interface language, but also product names, descriptions, guides, etc. It also covers customer support.

You can find the language setting icon at the top, which can be opened by clicking on the flag of the United Arab Emirates. Select your language and ‘save & continue’.

Online shopping categories for UAE Amazon;

Here are main shopping categories (which include sub-categories);

Art, Jewelry & Accessories, Home Improvement, Perfumes, Computers, Paper money & Stamps, Gaming, Outdoors & Garden, Home Supply & Kitchen, Beverages & Groceries, Fitness & Sports, Electronics, Toys & Kids, Apparel & Accessories, Beauty, Personal Care & Health, Furniture, Eyewear, Auto Parts, Kitchen Appliances, Home Appliances, Office Products, Furniture & Home Decor, Movies & Music, Cameras, Tablets & Mobile Phones, Pets, Books, Babies as well as Bed & Bath.

Returning items and getting refunds;

The Arabic world has plenty of counterfeit items, and Souq does a good job at battling this by providing an authenticity guarantee. This policy is much more effective than on the US Amazon store, as selling fakes goods has been made non-profitable.

If items are not as described, poor quality or inauthentic, you will receive a full refund which includes any fees you paid to send back the items.

Also, if the item or product remains in it’s original packaging, you may return it within 15 days from purchase with no questions asked.

Please be aware, that some shopping categories included “non-returnable” tagged items, such as underwear, swimwear, books, lingerie, fragrances, socks, etc.

And that concludes my guide, and all the essentials I’ve put together on the Amazon website in United Arab Emirates. Please, share this post if you found it useful.

Also, a Finnish dealer will likely have better availability.


Going through some of the online stores on the list of official Harvia dealers, I only found one that was willing to send wood stoves to addresses within Europe.


They have plenty of stock and a deal with a freight company for sending goods to most Euopean countries. The site itself is in Finnish, but they have good customer service and I’m sure that you can communicate with them in English.

Harvia dealers that do not send goods overseas;

Oivarauta, Taloon, Talotarvike, Hankkija, Stark Suomi.

There might be more however, you can search for them “here“.

They have developed online learning to a whole new level, with certification that can actually land you the job or position you want, the smart way.

This is my review on how you can leverage your certificate backed learning through their easy to use and popular online course platform.

Online Courses

It all started from an idea to make education accessible for everyone without limitations or boundaries which was an instant success story worldwide.

To provide the best value possible to students, they added paid certificates and other advanced courses while maintaining access to online sources free “here“.

Providing something for everyone, without a doubt their biggest attraction is being able to get the same level of education as in highly reputable educational institutions, without having physical boundaries as well as providing a game changing reductions in both cost and study efficiency.

By being able to master the exact field that’s needed for you to succeed in life, any student motivated enough can make anything they want out of their lives. The negative stigma of online certificates is slowly fading away and employers are able to recognize the individual effort that can be made through platforms such as edX.

Likewise some students still have prejudice against online learning but what really has turned things round for them are the social features of the platform. Not just online course material is provided but emphasis is put on social features, where you can interact with other students and course assistants.

Independent learning has never been so efficient before.

And neither has edX forgotten the needs of students who might struggle to pay for high-end degrees or quality certification for maximum benefit.

While costs are much lower than in schools and other physical institutions, they have go further with regular promotions for savings up to $150 per course.

You can check out all the latest edX promos at this link.

The benefits of edX online courses are significant;

  • No need to spend time and effort trying to pass entry exams.
  • No physical boundaries so you can study from anywhere.
  • No student loans or expensive courses.
  • Ability to study subjects completely free without certification.
  • Massive community that can provide one-to-one support all the way from the beginning to the end of your course competition.
  • Ability to study exactly what you want at your own pace.
  • All in one solution no matter what your goal in life is.

If you are looking for an alternative route to learning anything from math to law or any other school subject there is, no doubt edX is an obvious choice.

What is edX?

The edX platform is one of the best and leading MOOC sites on the internet. It stands for “Massive Open Online Course “, meaning that the provided study courses are openly accessible via the web for the use of unlimited participants.

The originally site was founded by Harvard University, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 20120. Currently their courses are provided by more than 120 institutional partners from universities to other educational organizations around the world.

These courses are not just video lectures, problem sets, readings and traditional course material. Much emphasis is put into interaction where students, professors and course assistants (also known as teaching assistants) are part of a support community for immediate feedback during the online learning experience.

Over 2,200 courses are currently available in subjects such as Math, Economics, Education, Languages, Environment, Humanities, Law, etc.


More traditional school institutions are here to stay, yet they are increasingly backing online learning opportunities and teaming up with companies like edX.

And without a doubt we are at a turning point where job seekers are more and more seeking for new ways to get to where they want in life. To which online courses will continue to provide a viable answer at a growing rate. As to how these two forces will balance each out in the long run is yet to be seen.

Best of luck with your study endeavours!

What’s your review of learning with edX?
Questions welcome on online courses welcome too.

Best Movie Site I’ve Found!]]> https://www.elftronix.com/?p=8616 2019-05-08T02:46:46Z 2019-03-11T12:00:51Z Set out to find the best site for all white porn videos and movies, I was surprised to find so much variety in production quality, even among top sites.

This lead me to discover Greg Lansky and his ground shaking porn empire created out of sheer talent for shooting high quality porn scenes.

So if you’re looking for the most amazing white girl models, in my humble opinion the undisputed winner is the “Vixen Erotica Site“.

I’m confident in saying that one look is enough to convince you that their white porn is of very high quality, they also provide a trial memberships.

Best White GIrl Porn

On a lot of sites white girl movies and videos are just trash because there’s just so much of it and thus it can be hard to find the really good stuff.

What’s great about Vixen is that it’s dedicated to it’s niche, so you get frequent movie releases and a huge archive of the best white girls ever.

Fans of white porn like me will appreciate to watch their porn in HD quality and neat features like downloads for later viewing.

Vixen has definitely satisfied my needs in this area.

What makes Vixen the best for white girl porn?

  1. They have a strict policy to release only high quality and all white porn video content, with 6 new monthly full movie releases.
  2. Exclusive content not found on free streaming sites.
  3. One of the best quality model selections I’ve seen for stunning girls on all videos, turning new names into porn stars.
  4. Video content is in the best possible HD quality (4K).
  5. Sexy website interface for easy browsing, streaming and satisfying your needs on both desktops and mobiles (iPhone, Android, etc.)
  6. Fast website for smooth video playback.
  7. Unlimited access to large archive of white girl porn & downloads.
  8. No fake tits, what you get is the real deal.
  9. More than reasonable pricing from $0.66/day.
  10. Trial memberships and other member discounts available, “at this link“.

My review on white porn sites;

The white girl porn scene is crowded with all kinds of sites, so we need to look at (1) very niche specific ones to find something worth while.

Myself I was concerned with (2) the quality of production (3) watching the most amazing white girls (4) with great action and decent acting.

Reviewing these four points among the dozens of porn sites that I checked, it became  obvious to me that Vixen is stands out from the rest.

So unless you are searching for a very niche specific type of white porn, it could be that you are simply wasting your time looking at other adult sites.

As for the girls, these are some of my very favorite hotties;

Elena Koshka, Evelyn Claire, Autumn Falls, Pepper Xo, Lily Love, Alex Grey, Kylie Page, Tori Black, Bree Daniels, Natalia Starr, Lana Rhoades, Elsa Jean, Alexa Grace, Kendra Sunderland, Mia Malkova, Kenna James, Keisha Grey and Alina Lopez.

Be sure to watch their videos if you decided to grab a membership.

And hey, let us know your favorite girls!

Enjoy watching mates, David.

And what’s the best online store of 2019 in Qatar?

It’s Souq which is now Qatar’s nr. 1 popular and largest shopping site.

Ecommerce in Qatar

Biggest online shopping website in Qatar;

With the lack of good competition and how connected the Arabic countries are, although Souq Qatar is based in Dubai, international shipping is free and fast.

With the convenience of the largest online shopping portal that includes a buyer/seller marketplace for unparalleled access to items throughout the states.

Obviously price competitiveness is another big factor, with popular products available for cheap thanks for their pricing algorithm that favors items in demand.

And the other important factor is COD (Cash on Delivery) payments.

Here are benefits from the best ecommerce site in Qatar.

  • The biggest availability of products throughout the Arabic nations, together with a marketplace and international Amazon orders.
  • Free courier shipping to Qatar for “fulfilled by Souq” items.
  • Marketplace for access to sellers throughout the Arabic nation.
  • Integrated international Amazon shopping, login with your Amazon account and purchase cheap AmazonBasics products locally.
  • Shopping interface and support in both English & Arabic languages.
  • All popular payment methods supported, including COD (cash on delivery), Visa & MasterCard, installments, Souq Wallet.
  • Set interface currency and make purchases in Qatari riyal.
  • 15 day money back guarantee and free returns for items not as described, fake or counterfeit for good user protection.
  • Popular products at deals of the day page for cheap online shopping.

All these features have set Souq way ahead of competition, ranking them at the very top of the e-commerce company list in Doha and rest of Qatar.

Payments with cash on delivery & shipping;

The Souq marketplace lists Qatar as an international shopping destination. Meaning that products are delivered with global shipping, mainly from UAE.

With the lack of big online stores in the country, online shopping is commonly done through sites located in other, bigger Arabic countries. But not all companies provide free shipping and cash on delivery like Souq does.

And while free shipping is supported by “fulfilled by Souq” products only, the cost of delivery with other items on the website is also often reasonably priced.

Furthermore, COD does cost a little extra and that;

  • Payments by cash only to courier personnel
  • Phone number verification is required for COD support

Shipping and delivery methods are commonly available to Doha & pretty much all other cities and towns in the Qatar nation for convenient online shopping.

List of other top e-commerce companies in Qatar;

Here are other ecommerce companies worth watching out for (most are not online stores), ranked by their popularity on social media.

  1. Cozmo Travel – Qatar
  2. Q-Tickets
  3. Acon Travels
  4. Doha Sooq
  5. Atpik
  6. Missdodi
  7. Europe Travels
  8. Travelstart Qatar

  10. My Book Qatar

Inquiries concerning the ecommerce scene in Qatar?
I’m happy to answer questions on online shopping in Doha.

So in my quest of finding the best anal porn site, I’ve had to browse through a lot of poor quality sites, some of which were even dedicated to the anal niche.

To first cut to the chase, please check out “Tushy“.

One look at their site and you know that this is a very high quality anal porn site, I only wish I would have known about it earlier!

Best Anal Porn

For fans of anal porn movies in clear HD quality like myself, this site site doesn’t cost much and satisfies ones ‘needs’ with frequent new releases.

This is why I consider them the “site that has it all”;

  1. They only release anal focused porn videos, with 6 at least new high quality movies released every month.
  2. Original and 100% exclusive content that’s not available anywhere else.
  3. It’s most likely the leading high quality anal porn production company with strict guidelines for quality and model selection for amazing girls.
  4. Videos are in the best possible 4K ultra HD quality.
  5. Great website interface for easy browsing and streaming of videos, as well as fast servers for very smooth instant playback.
  6. Mobile ready site compatible with phones and tablets such as iPhone.
  7. Massive archive of anal porn movies and pics, all you need.
  8. Affordable pricing from $0.55/day or, “start with a trial account here“.
  9. But the best feature is extremely hot anal porn.

My review of the best site for anal porn?

There are various mini-niches among anal videos, but those who are most concerned on (a) quality production (b) amazing girls (c) great anal action, will more than likely share my opinion that Tushy is one of the best sites there is.

You can spend a lot of time going through other sites but if you’re not searching for a very specific type of anal action you could be wasting your time.

For my tastes, the site has some of the hottest girls I’ve seen on any adult site. Most of them I’ve never even heard of before. Obviously other big sites have ‘the names’, but Tushy doesn’t seem to be interested in that.

In fact, they are the ones who are making the names.

Some of my favorites models include;

Bree Daniels, Candice Dare, Adria Rae, Casey Calvert, Carolina Sweets, Lena Paul, Adriana Chechik, Whitney Westgate, Haley Reed, Vicki Chase, Nancy Ace
Liya Silver, Jillian Janson, Amanda Lane, Janice Griffith, Zoe Bloom, Ella Hughes as well as Kenzie Reeves.

In May, 2019, Amazon has a local site version in Kuwait.

Also Amazon is now in both in English & Arabic!

Click here for the official Amazon website in Kuwait

Amazon in Kuwait

Good news for those who want to use, and buy from Amazon in Kuwait, as there is no need to tackle with the USD currency, package forwarding charges, or poor international shipping availability on the US based Amazon.com website.

The official Amazon website in Kuwait, is now known as Souq.

They support fast & safe, nationwide shipping with low shipping charges, online shopping in Kuwaiti Dinar and cash on delivery to name some advantages.

How Amazon works in Kuwait;

Headquartered in Dubai, Souq has become a known brand and the largest site for e-commerce among Arabic countries. Owned and run by Amazon, it’s also now officially the most popular online shopping website in Kuwait.

Acquired by Amazon in 2017, the online store has it’s founding roots as far back as 2005 when a Syrian businessman, Ronaldo Mechor founded the site.

It works in a similar fashion to the main Amazon site, which includes a seller portal where other businesses are also selling their products.

Save! The Kuwait Souq has a “deals of the day” page, which has a variety of discounted offers for each day, some include free shipping — check it out!

Shipping & delivery options to Kuwait;

There are a few shipping options, mainly by courier services with delivery to your doorstep. Similar to Amazon, you can see the final price that includes cost of shipping after placing items to the shopping cart and proceeding to checkout.

They deliver to all major Kuwaiti cities such as; Şabāḩ as Sālim, Janūb as Surrah, Ar Rābiyah, Al Farwānīyah, Al Faḩāḩīl, Bayān, Ar Rumaythīyah, Kuwait City, Al Finţās, Al Manqaf, Ar Riqqah, Al Jahrā’, Ḩawallī, As Sālimīyah, Salwá, Al Aḩmadī.

Also all of the six governorates are supported for shipping, which consists of the Al Asimah, Hawalli, Farwaniya, Mubarak, Ahmadi & Jahra Governorate.

Delivery services are available each day of the week, excluding Fridays. With the delivery time being during working hours, between 9:00 and 18:00.

For cash on delivery, there will be an additional fee.

English & Arabic language settings;

While the Amazon in the USA only supports the English language, the Souq equivalent also has support for Arabic, although it does not speak Kuwaiti Arabic.

You’ll see a flag of Kuwait at the top menu, which opens up the language settings tab after clicking on it. Select “Arabic”, or “English”.

The interface is almost entirely bilingual, with titles, descriptions and the rest of the shopping interface offered in both languages.

To directly access the English language site version click here.

Shopping categories;

To buy from Amazon in Kuwait, you can browse through an extensive list of categories, which include smaller sub-categories similar to Amazon.

Available main categories are; Health, Beauty, Eyewear, Pets, Wearable, Technology Devices, Home Appliances, Networking & Computers, Furniture & Home Decor, Electronics, Movies & Music, Books, Fitness & Sports, Baby & Infants, Home Supplies & Kitchen, Home Improvements & Tools, Tablets & Mobile Phones, Kitchen Appliances, Groceries, Cameras, Vehicle Parts, Collectables & Art, Game Consoles, Stamps & Paper money, Perfumes, Office Products, Clothing, Toys, Accessories & Jewelry, Outdoors & Garden, Bath & Bed, Furniture.

Refunds & return policy;

The website has policies in place to tackle counterfeit or poor quality items, however you can safely shop among items sold directly by Souq.

In any case, they guarantee your money back in 15 days if the ordered item is in it’s original packaging. Return shipping costs will be returned for items that are damaged, counterfeit or differ from that product description upon purchase.

However, some items are marked as “non-returnable”, which includes categories like; Earrings, Underwear, Music & Software, Books, Socks, Lingerie, Swimwear, etc.

And that’s the end of my online shopping guide..!

There are some other, competing alternatives to Amazon in Kuwait, but the only official equivalent is Souq. Which is highly competitive in pricing & availability.

Inquiries, comments or anything concerning Amazon in Kuwait?
How to buy, shipping, deliveries, etc. all questions welcome.

Having done a good amount of research on interracial porn sites, I found that in terms of quality, there’s a whole other world out there.

And since competition is so tough we are spoiled in price.

Best Interracial Porn

For fans of interracial movies in clear HD quality, like myself it’s important that I go with one site that doesn’t cost much and satisfies all my ‘needs’.

And the porn site that has it all is “Blacked“. Here’s why;

  1. They are dedicated to interracial porn videos only, being the most active with constant new releases of high quality movies.
  2. 100% exclusive and original content not available on other sites.
  3. One of the best quality interracial porn production companies with strict quality guidelines, model section and videos in crispy 4K Ultra HD.
  4. Super easy to use and ad free site for fast, smooth video streaming from any devices from laptops to iPhones and other mobile devices.
  5. Highly established adult site with near endless archive of older HD quality interracial porn videos, movies and pics.
  6. Pricing starts at $0.55/day or $2/day for a trial.

What makes them the best?

I’m pretty confident that many will share my opinion that just by looking at their website you can understand that they area very high quality site.

You can browse the web endlessly looking for other sites, but if you are into interracial stuff you are most likely wasting your time..!

While up to preference, in my opinion the models are some of the hottest I’ve seen, some of which have only worked for the same porn production company.

Their most popular female porn stars include; Kylie Page, Mia Malkova, Lena Paul, Megan Rain, Alina Lopez, Lily Love, Eva Lovia, Natalia Starr, Kendra Sunderland, Ariana Marie, Alexa Grace, Lana Rhoades, Scarlet Red, Sydney Cole, Jillian Janson, Elsa Jean, Amanda Lane and Leah Gotti.

With such high production quality, these stars can reach their fame. Thus, they have a long lineup of models wanted to make porn with them and as a result Blacked can just cherry pick the best of the hottest. And the video material focuses on the women, which for my preference makes them the most enjoyable by far.

What is Blacked.com?

The company Mad Cheddar has several highly reviewed, quality porn sites under their belt, and among them Blacked is one of the most popular ones.

Their niche is specialized in both hardcore sex and interracial sex.

They have also won multiple awards, including;

  • Director of the year, Best Interracial Movie & IR Series (2017 AVN Awards).
  • Director of the Year, IR Release of the Year (2017 XBIZ Awards).
  • Best Membership Site, Best Boy/Girl Scene, Best Cinematography, Best Threeway Scene, Best Interracial Movie (2016 AVN Awards).
  • IR Release of the Year, Adult Site of the Year (2015 AVN Awards).

Making them officially an award winning adult porn site.

It would be great to hear your comments below.

Have fun and play safe, David.

I’ll explain topics such as;

  • Does Bluehost work in China?
  • What you must NOT do to optimize your website.
  • What to do if your website gets blocked?

Bluehost in China

Bluehost in China Review of 2019

Does Bluehost work in China?

Not only Bluehost works in China, it also operates in China at Bluehost.cn which means that they have the much needed expertise to serve mainland Chinese customers, and provide access to good hosting to the area.

Hosting there is a complicated issue, so which plan should you go for?

No matter what the hosting plan, location is key and how well it’s connected to China. So although Bluehost’s Chinese website offers hosting in Hong Kong, this will in turn be slower for users outside of the country.

While there may be no perfect, inexpensive solution for fast hosting on both continents and globally. Usually the best option is the West-coast in the US (here).

But even amongst hosting companies with datacenters, you’ll need one like Bluehost that reserves China dedicated bandwidth for good accessibility.

What you must NOT do to optimize your website.

Bluehost provides a CDN (Content Delivery Network) service which serves your website from multiple servers around the world for optimal global speeds.

It’s called SiteLock which includes the CDN, I do not recommend using this when hosting for Chinese website visitors. The first thing to consider is that their server in Hong Kong is not optimized for mainland China. So speeds will vary.

First of all, Bluehost provides free “SSL certificates” for all of your hosted websites. Which is an absolute essential in 2019, because it gives you a boost in SEO and search engine rankings, plus increases trust.

Sites using SSL have the HTTPS in front of the site URL. Otherwise the address will be HTTP and web browsers will warn that the website is no secure enough.

And it’s really important to understand that if you enable the SiteLock service with Bluehost that provides the CDN, the free SSL will not work.

To actually use them together will cost so much, that it’s absolutely pointless as there are much cheaper solutions for SSL enabled CDN access anyway.

What to do if your website gets blocked?

Because Bluehost is accustomed to customers who are hosting website with visitors in mainland China, they know what to do if your site gets blocked.

While nowadays less likely, the blockage can occur to anyone especially on shared hosting plans where IPs are shared. However, simply contact Bluehost customer support and they will move your website to a new, fresh IP address.

Unblocking your website when it gets blocked by the Great Firewall of China is as easy as that, you just need a hosting company that understands the procedure.

And a tool you need is GreatFire Analyzer, for example with this link you can check accurate, historical data of blocks in China for the Bluehost.com domain.

As you can see they have never been blocked since November of 2014 until May, 2019. Or as far back as the historical records go.

Thanks for reading my review, hope you enjoyed it!

Also, I’m happy to share my knowledge on China related issues.

None other than Reality Kings. It’s really a no-brainer for real, high quality amateur porn videos as it’s one of the biggest such production companies.

And you can have a go nearly free, at $1/day “by clicking on this link“.

Real Amateur Porn Guide

I always expected that paying for porn and adult video material was expensive and not worth it. Well, Reality Kings has proved me wrong.

While it’s their brand for the best amateur stuff, you also get access to 45 porn sites with a single account (the one you can try for $1 a day…!).

While there were quite a few benefits such as;

  1. Saying good bye to ads and messy ‘free’ sites.
  2. Having too easy access to unlimited amounts of high quality porn.
  3. Getting all the latest stuff and constant new releases.
  4. Both streaming and downloads.
  5. Getting all porn genres including real amateur porn.

It’s prolly worth it for the amateur porn alone.

You know at some point you get old enough and browsing through endless clips, many of which are low quality or badly shot becomes a bore.

Having hot amateurs on HD video filmed by a professional filming crew and editors, simply is the best watching experience you can really have.

The site is nicknamed, ‘world’s best real porn site”.

And I can understand why.

If you want to be on the cutting edge of amateur porn, well there’s really no other in my experience and opinion. Just “go to this link” and see for yourself.

It’s pretty much free to try out for a couple of days.

Please note, that by opening an account with them this gives you access to not just Reality Kings but a whole network of porn sites, 45 in total.

Competing with freebie sites, their aim is clear. To provide all the porn videos and movies you could ever want under one subscription.

What’s your take on real amateur porn videos?
I’d love to hear your comments below.

Stay safe & have fun, David.
