A short word about Linux

logolinuxLinux !! It’s on the mouth of most IT guys these days – or for long we can say. Some know about them and use them, some only know about them and some simply just ignore its existence. Linux Version 3.18 has been recently released and on the occasion, I decided to have a little chat with somebody close or deep into Linux; Logan – An Official Linux Kernel developer with whom I conducted an interview recently and also talked about some IPv6 issues for my home country, Mauritius. Following is a little of what we talked. Feel free to add your own views and thoughts (even beliefs ūüėõ ) in the comments.

Open Source systems and the community running behind these have always been something interesting to dive in. As part of paving my path in those communities, I decided to have a word with one of the Open Source Developers in my Home Country namely¬†Loganden Velvindron,¬†Logan; a friend of mine – even if we met in person only once during a workshop on the¬†MariaDB Database Management System. Views expressed in this ‘mini-interview’ represent the views of Logan only. Other mini-interviews similar to this one will follow. :)

Vire Mam The Game – Politics 2.0 in Mauritius

Untitled

Well well; Good morning everyone. Live from ‘Le Bed’. Am writing this article since sleep is late for its rendez-vous today. Well, Ish Sookun posted on his blog some hours ago about a link to an online game themed with a political message from a specific party running up for the 2014 General Elections in Mauritius. Yes, you heard it right, An Online Game.

As it can be noticed since the very start of the rise in political events and scoops this year Рalliances, parliament on holidays and all РMauritius has seen a rise in the use of Social Media, the Internet and Tech 2.0 as never before. Web TVs with live broadcast and professional video-edits is The tool of the moment with Radio Stations having their own Web TVs; a semi-private-tv-station culture using Youtube mainly as platform to stream, spread and share their media, the dive in Online Radio for a Newspaper Group, the extensive use of the Facebook platform, and now the newcomer to the list;  That Online Game.

Orange Mauritius Mobile Internet Packages

mobile-user

Since long, I was looking for some ‘real’ saver-packages provided by mobile phone providers in Mauritius. By real, I ¬†mean those which will make you take make the best out of your mobile but at little cost (call, sms, and data). Especially today, with the advent of Internet connected services and the huuugge library of apps that require Internet connections. Recently, I had a issue whereby somebody with only some minutes of Whatsapp conversation over data connection, had Rs.30+ of mobile credit deducted. I thought to myself, is it that expensive? If yes, then this would slow-down the rise of Internet-Connected services both at developers’ side and users’-side.

Even if I often and always criticize Customer Services, note that the Customer Services responded kindly and explained to me clearly what was eating up the credit and all and did not mind to keep on replying my emails. Thanks buddy

Then, I came across an advert by Orange Mauritius whereby they are offering packages with SMS, data and unlimited Facebook and decided to write this article.

So, in this article; I will be touching the following points;

  1. Are the packages offered by Orange Mauritius ‘real’ (as mentioned above?)
  2. How to make the best out of those existing packages and save money you spend on mobile credit.

So, let’s go !
