Nigerian Monkey Pox

If you have a twitter, you probably saw this.
It's from The Boondocks and I thought the episode itself was hilarious.
But that's not the point of this post.
This is about the twitter-aftermath, which was even funnier.

I told you it was funny. Now, maybe we can convince the Nigerian government to ban Twitter.

SNLH app

Seeing as I have nothing to do (ok, i lie) I've decided to play around with making an app for the blog using the Ovi App wizard from Nokia.

The first go around was rejected from being published by the Ovi store, i.e. we can't make no monies from it. I see no point in letting my 5 minutes go to waste so I'll put the files up from download.

It's nothing fancy or anything but it should be pretty nifty if you want to read the blog from your mobile.

.jar file - should work on most phones. Yes, blackberries too.
.jad file - same as the above. It was more responsive than the .jar on my E63 for some weird reason
.wgz file - for Nokia touch devices only...I think

No, it will not melt your phone or turn it to dust. Just try it out and tell me what you think. Maybe with a little feedback, i can actually put some effort into it this time

RIP President Yar'Adua

When bad things happen, it usually takes a little while for it to sink in for me. When they announced the news four hours ago, I barely batted an eyelid. I retweeted a tweet from a friend about it, but I wasn't ready to commit an opinion just yet. Until I realized, five minutes ago, that this is the second Nigerian president that has died while "in office" during my lifetime. The first was Abacha, and we all know how we felt when that happened (PAAAAARRRTAY!!!). But today, the atmosphere, at least on the internet, seems a lot more solemn. His passing is sad, and yet, not because we lost a great leader - a lot of people hold the opinion that Yar'Adua's presidency did not live up to expectations, and even disappointed in a number of areas. It's more sad in the general "a life was lost" vein. At least, that's how it feels for me. It's sad that he died, but what's sadder is that he failed to leave behind a legacy that people could consider inspiring or even emulable. As Peter Parker always says, "With great power comes great responsibility." I don't think Yar'Adua ever read a Spiderman comic. Maybe if he did, he might have decided to become a different kind of leader, one that creates positive change as opposed to little or no change.
May his soul rest in peace. The next few months are going to be an interesting one for our beloved country, Nigeria. Let's just hope we come out better, as opposed to worse for wear.
