• Alright I am back for now. New projects as well.

      Apparently having some issues with the Virtual Place but it should be resolved very soon. Apart from CyberMike2, there is another project that I am involved in partly which is a centralised online missionary system. I shall have more on that once the project is fully launched and stable.

    • Temporary Hiatus due to the 14th General Election.

      Due to the upcoming 14th General Election that our country is going to go through on May 9th, there will be no eDiary posts here other than essential ones. I shall be heavily preoccupied with items pertaining to it.

      We'll get back up to speed right after the polls are over.

      In the meantime, if you are a resident, please go and vote!

      If you are a polling station agent or a vote counting agent, please exercise integrity.

      Thank you.

    • A Message from Paul Durov, Telegram co-founder.

      Take heed, for this may happen closer to home...

      For the last 24 hours Telegram has been under a ban by internet providers in Russia. The reason is our refusal to provide encryption keys to Russian security agencies. For us, this was an easy decision. We promised our users 100% privacy and would rather cease to exist than violate this promise.
      Despite the ban, we haven’t seen a significant drop in user engagement so far, since Russians tend to bypass the ban with VPNs and proxies. We also have been relying on third-party cloud services to remain partly available for the rest of our users. 
      Thank you for your support and loyalty, Russian users of Telegram. Thank you, Apple, Google, Amazon, Microsoft – for not taking part in political censorship.
      Russia accounts for ~7% of the Telegram user base, and even if we lose that entire market, Telegram’s organic growth in other regions will compensate for this loss within a couple of months. However, it is personally important for me to make sure we do everything we can for our Russian users.
      To support internet freedoms in Russia and elsewhere I started giving out bitcoin grants to individuals and companies who run socks5 proxies and VPN. I am happy to donate millions of dollars this year to this cause, and hope that other people will follow. I called this Digital Resistance – a decentralized movement standing for digital freedoms and progress globally.

    • Vote for the person not the party.

      🇲🇾Once again the citizens have to decide who govern our nation for the next 5 years. A respected senior came up with some questions to help us make this important decision.

      1. Has the past government lifted the country to greater height or brought us shame?

      2. Have your living standard improved or gone down? 

      3. Is the government transparent in its administration?

      4. Is there righteousness in Leadership or Arrogance?

      5. Is there separation of power? Does justice flow like an everlasting stream? 

      These are important things for a nation to take heed of if we are to forge a strong nation.

      Our nation is at a cross road.

      Your country needs you to decide its future direction.

      Don't be afraid to vote according to your conscience.

      Do not feel obliged when you are given things or money to vote in a certain way.

      A corrupted vote is dirty.

      Elect people to serve us and not self serving politicians.

      Your vote has power. You are powerful now.

      Exercise this power prayerfully.

      Share this little thought with your friends, social groups or your relatives who are still undecided who to vote for the coming GE14.

      Go back to your hometown, villages and share with the simple minded folks and help them to reason and vote rationally.

    • Haven't had the time lately.

      Sorry, things caught up quite a bit to keep writing in here. But there will be something up real soon.

      Finally got back onto the further development of the Virtual Place.

      So yeah. Definitely things are rearranging themselves now.

    • DTUBE?

      I got wind of DTube, which is the video arm of Steemit, and I had a look at it.

      First impressions were that it is really hard to use as uploads and thumbnails are separate, and the first video played back crashed due to "lack of a certain browser feature".

      So probably I shall wait until they sort more things out but as a start it looks very promising. Like the essence of Youtube without the commercialization.

    • A tribute to Billy Graham..


    • Figuring this out.

      So I guess that this will be the place for more original postings. The ones from Wordpress.com e-diary are mostly retweets and reblogs. Besides it is not self-hosted so using the plugin might be out of the question.

      I have also found out that sending likes equals a little bit of "money".

      It is also surprisingly easy to type here. The editor loads fast and there is no lag. Best of all, it seems to work nicely in mobile mode without the need of a separate app.

      Until I totally figure out embedding, probably might load through an iframe in the Virtual Place and then work on something to embed it there, because it seems to be able to.

    • What should I do with this?

      Having already another blog with 800 over posts on it, and now this thing.

      What should I put here? Selected posts? Other posts? Subject specific?

      At the moment, this one seems redundant.

      Also that payment thing. You need the Steemit coin payment to like another post isn't it?

      Really unsure.

      The API is also quite sketchy, seeing that it seems to support Javascript, though I have not further explored its integration with the Virtual Place.


    • Hello?

      Alright this is unusual.

      It looks a lot like Medium but it is not quite.

      Well, will see how it goes.
