The brand spanking new Windows 8 is around the corner in most places. In some countries it’s already available. If you are like me and your company was running on the very heavy and very slow Windows Vista or XP till recently Windows 7 was introduced and feels like it’s a new machine all together, the world is moving fast!
While it might be a long shot till your company gets you on Windows 8, it’s perhaps a good time to upgrade your home pc if you might be in the market for one. If you are still sceptical, it’s a good idea to test drive Win 8 on your existing PC.
Install Win8 developer preview on a virtual box which will give you an opportunity to test the new operating system out without wiping out your existing OS
Oracle VM VirtualBox
Windows 8 Developer Preview ISO file (32-bit or 64-bit)
Windows Live ID (for best testing experience, sign up here if you don’t have one)
Internet Connection (for best testing experience)
For detail instruction on how to get this done, check THIS out.
I have tested it out for a few days now and i must say that it’s a different experience from what we are used too but a change that I could get used too very easily. Windows just got pimped!
If you don’t know yet the government is pondering restructuring the Health Care System which means that you potentially have to give up 10% of your salary for what they think is system that is
responsive and provides choice of quality health care, ensuring universal coverage for health care needs of population based on solidarity and equity
Sounds like a load of rubbish to me! So 10% of your salary later and you don’t like it, you’ll have to pay more to see another doctor or get better medicine. Sounds like a pretty shit deal isn’t it!

Watched this super movie over the weekend and i think everyone should watch this one.
Gadoh tells a story of a group of teenagers who fought each other along racial lines; a cycle of hatred and violence further escalated by their environment and school system.
What was to be a quick resolution to improve the school’s bad image, was taken as an opportunity for one teacher who believed that real change was possible. She ropes in the help of an old friend and reluctant maverick theater activist for this arduous task.
Is there hope amidst the cycle of discrimination that surrounds us? Its in the education system? Or is it our ignorance that is generating a dysfunctional new generation. Ponder about it, but watch Gadoh first!
Watch Gadoh for their story, and what it may very well tell us about ourselves.
While i was working with a NGO, i went to Digi for a meeting. So here i was dressed nicely in my formal attire and in my tie waiting for the Digi team to come get us, comes in a gentlemen nicely dressed in jeans, a shirt with sleeves rolled up. I was a tad surprised at the dress code but we went ahead with the meeting and i made friends with the gentlemen who i was talking too.
