About life as an info-tech - arguing (preaching?) about what tickles my mind. I like Internet Protocol (IP). Which version? Never mind. But I run on IP. Yes, I do ~/`~/`~/` on IP!

Regular guy? Maybe. Was lucky enough to go places on foot, riding, driving, sailing, flying and even dreaming. I do tricks connecting tech-devices and teaching device users - that gave me the wherewithal to go places in Africa, Arabia, Europe, America and want to go to Asia, then into space to Mars (dream on, dreamer) ! Childhood pass time was always in a mechanical workshop fixing something - so i tinker a lot. I like meeting and knowing people.

Enough read! Enough said!

One of the biggest predictions for the year 2010 is that in the United Kingdom - and eventually in all Commonwealth countries such as Uganda - the English A-Level syllabus will be given a major shake-up soon, real soon.

Going out will be the likes of (everybody knows them) Shakespeare, the Brontes and Chaucer and coming in will be the complete works of N-Dubz, Tinchy Strider and Chipmunk.

A new dictionary based on text message speak will be used in schools, replacing the Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary; pupils will be examined on the contents of the new lexicon; research will be replaced by "googling". d nu Xam wl tst 2 c f ppl undRstNd d nu wA of cmunic8n.

Parents, if you do not like that yet, take your kids to school on the moon.

I almost forgot to wish you a: Hapi Nu Yr!
