After #BCAccra - X'mas #VIM Walk to 37 Military Hosp.

After BarCamp Accra, it was time to go home. But Accra and traffic during the festive seasons won't permit some of us to just enter a trotro and get home, So we decided to keep going with our natural trotros. lol!

+Nathaniel ALPHA said we will walk to 37 Military Hospital but we all shouted. Hohooo! Ah! is too far!!. Too far? no it was too near instead.

Then the squad +Felix Nartey+Omane Ossei-Poku+Senam Aseye Bridget +Frank Bruce Seyram and +Enock Seth Nyamador (myself), started walking, come and see walking-discussion.

We were discussing a lot better things oo. One was, if we had trains in Ghana will things be like this?

We also talked about what if Accra was having free Wi-Fi hotspots. It will be good but hey, the Torrents, and others. The Wi-Fi hotspots money can be used for something better and other interesting ones.
I learn't something new also from +Frank Bruce and +Felix Nartey when I asked Felix to show me the Canadian Embassy High Commission in Accra. Thanks guys for that lecture.

Soon we were at the Flagstaff house and the #VIM was growing. Some of the vehicles we saw at The World Bank office were far behind us.
Finally we arrived at 37 Military Hospital Nat and Seyram dropped first, next was Frank, I was still moving with Tema folks (Senam, Felix nad Omane).
Said bye bye to Tema folks too. Am the only one left now. Quickly I found my way out. Before I realized Frank was sitting directly in front of me in the same trotro.

It was awesome, :-)

BarCamp Accra 2013 - More Than Awesome #BCAccra

By now I know my readers know what BarCamps in Ghana are like and some of you had the opportunity to attend, if you still don't know, this this will help you out.

Thanks to +Google Maps and my Google Map Maker boss +Felix Nartey no problem locating the venue this time. I found myself at The World Bank (Head Office) as directed. 

Hehe! The World Bank doesn't share money oo! Like someone was thinking. I love the place 99.9 % I will use the 0.01% for Lotto :-D.

The theme was "Exercising Ethics to Engineer Excellence" and the panel discussion for BarCamp was all about how we can deal with corruption in the Ghanaian community. 

As usual there was Speed mentoring session, which is like speed dating but you learnt via +Kuukuwa Manful

During the speed mentoring session, the rest of us in the conference room led by +Mac-Jordan Degadjor witnessed an awesome game known as "Chinese Whispers" you wanna what it is? Next time make it to nearest BarCamp, Ok? But I will tell you. 

Someone whispers something to you and you also whisper to someone till the last person. The last person will let everyone know what was whispered, afterwards the one who commenced will tell us all the right word. It was fun. The word that started was "Photowalk" but +Donald Ward  changed it to ... guess it.. are you correct? #Tonga. lol!  #tonga did not reach the last person. It was fun. :-). The last person's answers were funny. You just can't laugh. The reaction when someone whispers to you..... lol!

Breakout sessions were organised, was in  +Planning Wikimedia Ghana's Content Creation (Wikipedia) session organised by +Enock Seth Nyamador (myself) and +Felix Nartey. You can read about this session soon on PWMGH's blog.
 I also joined the Creative Writing breakout session led by +Kinna Likimani
BarCamp Ghana: Matching Twitter handles to faces via +Delalorm Semabia. So new and old faces met. I met +Doris Anson-Yevu +Felix Nartey +Sena Quashie +Senam Aseye Bridget +Roger Gaisie +Omane Ossei-Poku +oliver akindes  +nathaniel ALPHA +Akua Akyaa Nkrumah  +Kwabena Akuamoah-Boateng +Edmund Laryea and etc. Hey! wait +Ela Asare  .. just can't complete.

BarCamp Accra Accra ended with the Ghana National Anthem, Yen Ara Ase se ne, and Arise Ghana Youth. You can read a full recap of Barcamp Accra by +Mighty African here . Hope to see you at next BarCamp.

Mother And Son Murdered At Laklivikope

NB: This post contains images of dead persons, viewer discretion is advised.
Source: Dan's Facebook Timeline

Laklivikope is a small village between Denu - Tokor and Agbozume (before Akame) on the Aflao - Accra (N1) highway.
Image from OSM

On November 22, 2013, as early as 7 AM the news was all over town and the airwaves. I heard it first on Light FM, when an eye witness was describing the scene via phone.

I was shocked, because it was recently that an issue about a fetish priest in that area killing his wife for rituals also stormed the airwaves. [I might talk about this more in the future]

This as well was all over the radio stations, Victory FM, Light FM, Holy FM and Abaac FM. They tried their maximum best to make the people of Ketu South and beyond know what actually happened.

This happening is currently in the hands of the police and I know they are investigating.

My Take

Sometimes I wonder how some peoples heart are. From the image (which was sold) I see a knife without with handle stuck into the mother's sex organ. This is a very sinful act I don't know even how to describe it. But we leave all in the hands of God.  I pray a very good conclusion comes up from the police's investigation.
Thanks for passing by and pray God save us all.

Sleeping In Perfect Peace #RIPMandela

I was reading +Ato Ulzen-Appiah's blog post (Driving through Accra, I Made Ghana Better Today, on International Volunteer Day) and listening to this music (Lengoma by DJ Sbu featuring Zahara) with its cool and soul touching percussion instruments sounds, then I decided to check Twitter for what's going on. My timeline says all (#RIPMandela):
Source: Wikimedia Commons
Immediately my heart started beating at a faster pace to the tune on the music. I felt it deep down me that the world has lost a very important soul.
Source: Girl Up's Facebook Photos
I really learnt and am learning from the life of this HERO. This man proves to, not only me, but the whole world, that nothing is impossible. He moved from "Z"ERO to "H"ERO. Even though I was a kid who knows neither red nor black not born before he was released from prison.

This really doesn't call for mourning, is a time of happiness but we just can't control this feelings.

When the late Nelson Mandela was asked: How do you want the world to remember you? He simply gave this answer, which still sounds in my mind after listening to it yesterday in the early hours of death on the BBC.
46664 is a number associated with Nelson Mandela. Mandela was imprisoned on Robben Island in 1964, and was the 466th prisoner to arrive that year. The prison administration's scheme of numbering prisoners was to follow the sequence number of the prisoner (466 in his case), with the last two digits of the year (64). The number is also associated with a series of AIDS charity concerts played in honour of Nelson Mandela by South African musicians in the 2000s. - Source: Wikimedia Commons

The world can't forget about you. I will say is "future impossible".

Ho - Aflao #trotro Experience

Trotro mini buses
Source: Wikimedia Commons

If you are not in Ghana and reading this am 100% sure you've never heard of the word trotro.

mate used here is the name of the one who helps the trotro driver, collecting lorry fare from passengers and others.

Trotro I will say is a major means of transport. I love taking trotro's a lot. I was thinking I name this post Aflao - Ho, Ho - Aflao #trotro experience since, the experience from Aflao to Ho to was funny and interesting too.

Aflao to Ho...

Leaving Aflao for BarCamp Ho in October,  At 5 AM, getting out of my house and the shouting Ho! Ho!! that morning the driver of the trotro just applied the break and I jumped inside happily thinking it was full of people going to Ho. Not knowing all of them were going to Dzodze. After Dzodze, the driver and mate's eyes became hot since they were not getting passengers as we move.

Well luckily we got one passenger on board, he was heavily drunk. He started telling driver he was over speeding. Soon another passenger, a male, also got on board. As we were going another trotro who was also looking for passengers along the Dzodze - Ho stretch came to by pass us.

My driver was like ahhhh! lol. All these passengers were not going to Ho, so the drunkard alighted first as he continues to sing his destination to the mate. Now the second guy alighted and presented GHS 50.00 to the mate. The driver nearly died. Haha! If you know the way I was laughing.
So we have to wait for him to quickly get money from a koko seller near by. And the driver was telling me, some people are not serious oo. Laughing all together.

Off we go and another drunkard again. Oops!. They will enter the vehicle before you can tell. This one wasn't having money to pay the lorry fare. But sat down quietly. Now time for him to alight. He was telling the mate, he will get the money at his destination and pay. Then the driver roared: "If you don't pay, I will drive you to Ho" can you imagine? Ho is very far from where we were at that moment. And how will he get back. He alighted and was playing nonsense, so the driver instructed the mate to remove his pair of shoes and let's go. Still laughing at the way the mate and drunkard were displaying. A woman at the roadside came to his rescue, paid for him and off we go.

The driver managed to by pass the other trotro driver before we reached called Ziope. He was telling I really wanted to reach Ziope before that driver, if not wahala for him. Still laughing.

Got to Ho safely and said bye to the driver and still laughing.

Found my way to Ho Polytechnic and BarCamp Ho started.

Ho to Aflao...

After BarCamp met some old friends who wanted me to spend my night at their place. It was a clash.. Those in Ho Polytechnic and University of Health and Allied Sciences. I wasn't able to tweet in Ho at all since I tweet via SMS. Tigo Ghana's service in Ho and all over the Volta Region is very POOR. I was mad at Tigo.

Spent the night in Ho, Enjoyed free Wi-Fi and blah... blah.. blah.. :-D

Now is Sunday and time to leave home (Aflao) Here the #trotro experience I never had started from.
Getting to Ho main lorry station at 6 PM, I decided to enter the first car available going to Aflao. Things didn't work normally like how you enter a trotro. Trotro always set off before you start paying to the mate. We paid before we set off. Some women were complaining.

After paying already, this driver without a mate took us to a filling station to fill his fuel tank. Instead of him doing that earlier.

Then something happened the guy at the Filling Station was seriously talking on the mobile phone, so with less attention on business the fuel poured on to the ground. The driver want him to give out GHS 2.00 for the fuel on the ground. He disagreed and was saying : "It was the fuel tank of the vehicle that was leaking."

This went on for some minutes, I was only thinking of getting home as early as possible.
Off we go. One the way I learnt something new from the women after three or four policemen signaled the driver to stop.
We were in the vehicle for about 30 minutes drive out of Ho township, then OOH! The car just started slowing down in a manner that you will know something is definitely wrong.
Then Driver: We can't move on, there is something wrong with the engine belt. I was like hey! Then we all started complaining. One of the women said: "It was because the car was not in good form, that was why they were doing things secretly at the station."

Luckily for us it was just a few metres away a Police Barrier and houses were around. I felt very sad for a woman who was actually concerned about how her children are doing back home at that moment.

We were there for about 30 minutes, it was even going to rain and we were all saying if it get serious will just enter the vehicle. The driver talk to one of the drivers back at the station. Soon a vehicle arrived.
We got inside quickly as it started raining and got home safely.

Installed Elemetary OS Luna: Beautiful UI and Great Performance

Elementary OS Luna, a Linux distro based on Ubuntu  with very nice and beautiful UI. Its 'iOS-y' nature is so magnificent. It's the third Linux distro that I have installed in my system. 

Elementary OS logo
Sine it's Ubuntu based I have to do the first thing that is always done by 98% of Ubuntu after a fresh installation, installing Ubuntu-restricted-extras. Painful though. 

After installing Crunchbang I did not go through restricted extras things, most of these codecs are supported out-of-the-box. 

I was playing around, and the wallpaper below really grabbed my attention.

Here is the default wallpaper for Elementary OS Luna 0.2

About my Elementary OS 0.2 Luna
Next I installed my favorite music player (MOC Player) and started rocking some great tunes. Can you see the tracks on the playlist? Ah! Khona is always there. :-D

I've Installed Crunchbang (#!) 11 "Waldorf" Linux too

Crunchbang a light weight debian based Linux distro. I love the boot time, is very quick. I installed Crunchbang 11 recently along side Ubuntu 13.10.

I Was Mad At Tigo Ghana's Network Failure

I use Tigo. Yes I started using Tigo before I even got some "alatsa" phone to but the SIM card into it way back before 2008. I use Tigo for everything from tweeting via SMS  to surfing the web.

Recently Tigo Ghana's network in Aflao has become a great problem you can't talk of. 

It goes off anytime and comes on when it likes. The worst one was for two good days. Whenever I complain the lady(s) will always tell me "There is currently no problem in your area" It pains me like how Rancho's question pained Virus for years. (3 Idiots movie)

Recently, there was another failure, no failures. And is the one that pained me most, I was having 2.7 GB of internet data and left with few days to expire. Due to these failures I wasn't able to use what I used to finish a week, sometimes two weeks. 

I got to twitter and started tweeting @TigoGhana, I even sent Tigo an email about the problem, my disappointment and this blogpost but no reply. In fact my eyes were red. The 2.7 GB data that will be taking for FREE, like FREE BONTO.

But can you imagine going to Ho the Volta Regional capital and the POOR service from Tigo? I was in Ho for BarCamp Ho and Tigo's network wasn't even available on Ho Polytechnic and University of Health Allied Sciences campus?

After the network has been fixed, I called someone, then I received a notification, "Your last call was in SpecailZone" quickly I called the customer care line (always a lady, I don't know why?) to checkout what that actually mean. Our conversation:

(Tigo Customer Care) TCC : Hello, this is blablah of Tigo and how may I help you?

me: Hello, my name is Enock calling from Aflao. I just called someone and received a notification "Your last call was in SpecialZone" and want to know what is about?

TCC: OK. Enock please can I put you on hold and check what the problem is? (She was trying to answer after sometime before this)

Advertisement : Free Bonto!!!, No Wahala, blah blah

TCC: Hello, Enock, Thanks for staying on the line.

me : Welcome.

TCC : Where did you say you are calling from?

me : Aflao

TCC : You know what?

me : No

TCC : There was network problem in your area and that's why Tigo is compensating you.

me: Yeah! I know.

TCC: Please is there any other problem?

me : No.

TCC : Thank you for calling Tigo and have a nice day.

me . Same, Bye.

After ending the call, I said ah! I should have asked the lady, then why do they always tell me "Please there is currently no problem in your area"
Tigo, I know, you know, put things in place for us. And about the 3G coverage too. :(

You are really doing a great job with #GoUnlimited but you need to improve upon services as well.

Smile, I've got Tigo :-)

My Twitter Life So Far

Source : technorati
Hello Guys!
Borrowed from Google search
See the handset above, some friends call it my twitter computer. I can do everything related to twitter from this handset all via SMS thanks to Tigo Ghana for being a long time supporter of Twitter SMS. But these days Tigo Ghana is messing up with us in the Volta Region  and I have a blog post for them soon.

I do most of my tweeting via SMS especially during #FiestaDebate, on the road and when am not with a PC.
You might be wondering how actually does this work. Well, am writing this because my days of this handset are numbered. lol ;-). hehe!

Here is how I do things via SMS.

1. Everything I tweet is sent to short code 40404 and it gets pushed to my twitter account. I see it to be faster than normal tweeting sometimes.

2. I receive text notifications whenever am mentioned, some retweet or favorite my tweets, new follower, new DM (Direct Message) and tweets from people whose notifications I have enabled myself. (one of such people is @Abocco, no day without SMS heh!. lol)

3. I can send DM, view people's profile all via SMS. 
        To send a DM here is the syntax:
             m @handle [message]

         say I want to send a DM to @kpogadziboy, with message "Hello Boy" I simply text:
             m @kpogadziboy [Hello Boy]
        to short code 40404

Enjoy ;-)

BarCamp Ho 2013 and The New Style

BarCamp Ho 2013 took place in the Ho Polytechnic SRC JCR on Saturday October 26th 2013.

BarCamp Ho 2013 saw many mentors and barcampers, some of these mentors include Leila Djansi the director of the Sinking Sands movie and others. If you missed BarCamp Ho, then you didn't just missed something but alot you can't imagine.

In this post I will tell you what the "New Style" is. For all the BarCamps I've been to, I've never seen one thing that happened in Ho.

There was speed mentoring as usual. Had my one and only speed mentoring with David Kotei Nikoi which was all about Tourism in Ghana. What Tourism actually mean, how we have not taken full advantage of tourism yet and how we can make it a better one. I really enjoyed this speed mentoring and was willing to go continue since speed mentoring is only 10 minutes interaction.

Then something happened. The "New Style" Speed Mentoring now Breakout or Group Mentoring. I don't know how to even put it ;-). Time was allocated immediately after the one-on-one speed mentoring for this:

So I have to go back to my favorite "Tourism" again and it was great. I've learnt a lot.

Also, I organised a breakout session on putting Ghanaian contents on Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects. As we know most tertiary students especially those in the universities make good use of Wikipedia but none is ever ready to add to it. Read more about this breakout session on Planning Wikimedia Ghana's blog.

Since BarCamps are networking forums, I can't leave without meeting both new and old folks ;-), never!. The networking even starts before you get to the venue of the event. ;-) Here are some tweets for you:

Not forgetting, I also saw some old and present Ketasco (alma mater) students at BarCamp Ho and was very glad they also learnt a lot and networked. #Dzolali

And finally, what have you about this question:
One of the best answers I've taken seriously:

Hope you gonna make it to the next BarCamp. Follow GhanaThink Foundation for updates.

Finally Moved to "Saucy" Ubuntu 13.10

Few days ago Canonical released Ubuntu 13.10 "Saucy Salamander" and everyone was busily downloading, upgrading and installing. 

I have also finally moved to Ubuntu 13.10 and I love it.

Checkout my desktop ;-)

As a Wikipedian am very happy about the new features of the dash. And what did I do first, searched for Azonto from the dash next was Waakye. Here :

If you want to use Ubuntu too, I can help you out.

Enjoy ;-)

I've learnt from my previous decisions

Borrowed from Facebook
The image above proved me wrong and made my day. I was thinking "Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose"

Sometimes we make decisions which we later regret. I have made a number of them too. Some I have agreed to and within few days or hours again said I disagree or rejected.

There is this saying that "think twice before you do or say something". But I now see clearly that the TWICE doesn't mean just two times. It means a lot.

Why am I even writing this? At the time of writing this I wasn't happy and feeling well (comfortable) and I think I have to make myself comfortable by writing this.

The reason for writing this post is just to share how I felt for hours, days and even weeks after making certain decisions which I later said NO.

When you and someone decide on something and one of  you later reject or disagree with what you have agreed on earlier, how do you the one who still wants that to take place feel? (Kindly feel free to leave a tip on how you felt at a point like this to help someone.)

Not only does the one who is still in agreement feels bad. But the one disagreeing also feels it too. Sometimes it's hard to say but you just need to.

What I will like to say here is that if you are like me or have gone through something like this. You feel the connection between you and that person have ended for life. But it shouldn't be so. It's because of a reason and you and I must learn from it.

I will like to use this opportunity to say sorry to anyone I have once said YES to but later said NO. I have learnt from it.

Thanks for passing by, enjoy your day and always be happy.

I am a Google search geek, says the stats

Source Wikimedia Commons


It has been a long time posted something here. But am back to share with you once again.

Who doesn't know about Google? When someone knows about Yahoo, Facebook, that person certainly knows about Google OR I will say there is no one who uses the internet and doesn't know about Google. By the way if you don't know what Google is, here you are.

Am really a great fun of Google even though am not affiliated to it in any way. :)

Now back to why I wrote this post.

I use Google search everyday. Why? Want to know? Ok. I use it mostly for getting references for Wikipedia articles. Surprised? How and Why Wikipedia?
Just a take few minutes please, and read this article about Planning Wikimedia Ghana.

Welcome back if you read about Planning Wikimedia Ghana and I know you love it. Looking forward to seeing you become a Wikipedian now.

I use Google search for my personal research stuffs. Also I do that for friends or those who want me to, after they have tried to make Google vomit whatever they were looking for but can't. If you are that type who searches and Google gives you nonsense. No it's not nonsense that is what you requested,  keep an eye on this blog. I have a post about how to make Google vomit what you're looking for, even Google's intestines will come out. lol! (Trying to say Google search tips and tricks)

Is been a very long time I checked my Google search stats. This morning I was looking for something I searched yesterday in the night but can't find it in the browser's history. So I have to check my Google search history, which I know will surely rescue me.

I was really surprised when the stats page was telling me am a Google search geek. :).

Here are the stats:
