Phones / Re: See The 7 Fastest Android Phones With Octa-core Processors by BlackBaron: 8:35am
Decale:


Xz premium is out
Stop telling porkies. I use XZ and I ain't seen the premium out anywhere until 1st June
Phones / Re: See The 7 Fastest Android Phones With Octa-core Processors by BlackBaron: 8:13am
XZ premium isn't out yet...that I know.
The XZ is probably what the op means. Nevertheless, the difference between the XZ and the premium is very marginal at best.

Apart from that, I'll let you know that the differences between octa core and other phones I have used are nothing mind blowing
Nairaland / General / Re: Python Captured On Camera Climbing A House (Photo, Video) by BlackBaron: 5:51pm On May 24
Nairaland is now the number hotspot for fake news in Nigeria.
The use of bricks, single storey and unusual architecture is different from ours.

If not sure,

The markings on the snake should also inform that it's a very different pattern from the species of python (African rock python) from Nigeria.

Bump to my question...

Please help.
BlackBaron:
Hi House,
Please
I'll like to know more about using a ups.
The UPS is a Borri B60 1500/2000v (900W)
I'll like for it to power the following items;

PC ==Acer Revo (compact) desktop
Printer == Samsung laser jet printer (310 watts when in use)
Maybe TV and consoles sometimes,

Please, how long would it last and can it feasibly handle the items above?

There are alot of reason why terrorism will persist in the north east of nigeria

-the vast nature of game reserve of sambisa and other game reserves in yola and adamawa state.
-porous boders that runs into thousands of kilometers. etc

now that BHT has being degraded, the next phase of the warfare is to block every terrorist funding's & and kill the ideology. in no time the menace will become a thing of the past.
Henry240:


That's unfortunately not possible.

This is going to cost us massively economically if it goes on like this. Costs of oiling the machineries (weapons, missiles, bullets, etc) of war plus loss in productivity in the areas in question; Borno and the whole affected sub region. Time for us to fix up, I don't envy those in charge but its their gauntlet, let them handle it.

Probably unless there's a coordinated final push on bh, Seems they still have large pockets of space they can spring up camps, regroup, ambushes etc.

Not sure of the dynamics on ground, but sometimes I'm not sure if they army prefers the model of the endless battle of Pakistan army against Taliban in the mountains of Waziristan or would a model of timed troop surges like Iraqi army against 'shitty state' totally clearing out enemies from a geographical location be better. The latter option is best but who knows with Nigerian army.

SupremeCourt:


Most important question all Nigerians fail to ask is; Where is Boko Haram hiding hundreds of Chibok girls after army cleared Sambisa, air force surveyed every kilometer of North East? How can the whole federal intelligence and military machinery not know where so many girls are being hidden and now being released bit by bit? Those Boko Harams who brought these 82 girls out on agreed time, agreed date, to agreed location, where did they emerge from and disappear to like ghosts riders? Are the NAF, NIA, and DSS so blind?

There's vast regions in the north east still uncleared. Unfortunately, there are limitations to the amount of critical intelligence our air assets can gather. Our HUMINT needs to get better to be able to sniff out these terrorists and wherever they may be within the sub region. Who knows how many times our air assets came close but without proper identification of Chibok or another set of bh concubines or captives. The whole sub region still struggles on this whole aspect and until we fix up, these animals can effectively slip through the cracks in our intelligence.

Sports / Re: Anthony Joshua Beats Wladimir Klitschko: WBA Heavyweight Fight by BlackBaron: 12:04am On Apr 30
Bellew is mostly a cruiserweight. He stepped up to Light heavyweight class just to fight Haye. However, it would be the biggest mismatch for Bellew to cross two divisions to fight AJ. Similarly, some names mentioned here, unless in the super heavyweight division, would be a mismatch.

About the fight...
This was one of his most testing experiences ever. Klitschko for me yesterday looked in almost better conditioning than Joshua but his age at 41, he couldn't do more. Excellent test for Joshua though as he'll get a wealth of experience and knowledge from fighting one of the men who ruled heavyweight boxing for almost a decade.

I am also sure that AJ would finish Wilder, Deontay for all has never really fought a more powerful ko specialist better than he is. There's not much to be said about the power of Joshua other than right now, he's got more complete attributes than Deontay.

Saw the weigh in video yesterday. Klitschko looks ripped and heavily conditioned than his usual self.
Would be one of Joshua's toughest fights.

Joshua's 18 KOs vs Klitschko's 27 years of boxing experience.
Properties / Re: Is There A Demand For Brick Houses In Nigeria? by BlackBaron: 7:31am On Apr 26
Bricks are quite expensive in Nigeria. Costs more I think. Show us some of your work and estimated costs please.
Also, I'd rather have buildings with other components than cement blocks but the lack of expertise is the issue especially among local builders.

Example is use of gypsum panel blocks to build houses considering we have abundance of this material in the country.

I hope you all know the super tucano deal is still subject to ratification by the US Congress despite Donald Trump's assent for the sale. The mind boggling price may also include price of support, missiles, etc.
However, if that's not the case, if enough furore is made and escalated here in Nigeria to the hierarchy, maybe they might reconsider the deal if found to be too dear.

Romance / Re: Say No To Broke Men, Ladies Be Smart! by BlackBaron: 2:26pm On Apr 15
That a lot of women feel entitled to having a rich man is also why other females are comfortable trying to snatch rich men married or not from other females.
Fixating on more than wealth in a man would surely see you picking out even the worst bunch of well to do men. There's no need to choose unambitious men but discarding other ambitious men based on your narrow perception of how much he has to have wil lead you to a world of probable ruination and wrong choices..

This guy speaks like a friend of mine from the north (an elite) who also acknowledges and speaks out about backward attitudes that limits development in the North.
In all, all tribes have their own faults, we can learn from each other while burying values that are incompatible with development.

Wow... Though knowing Nigeria, you'll be hard pressed for more information about its specs and so.
They are primarily good for sandy, beaches or desert regions than road.

Seeing the military version, it looks like the top speced versions available.
Has the side compartments too for extra hardwares; ammo boxes, water, etc
The passenger side on the right, an extra armament of either grenade launchers or an HMG would do.

Other countries classify them as fast attack vehicles or desert patrol vehicles. Good for recce or attacking small outposts.

Business / Re: Cashless Policy: Payporte Suspends Payment On Delivery by BlackBaron: 1:13pm On Apr 04
NubiLove:


I mean the transaction (pay on delivery) happens inside or in front of the post office. And post offices still exist well in Nigeria, I have a P.O Box and I go to the post office at least once a week.
You'll have a company and you'll entrust 'Nigerian post office' to safely keep and restitute customer proceeds back to you? Even delivery men abscond sometimes. Do you know even after successful deliveries, some are waiting to waylay the cash with the courier?

Implement robust policies on returns and or exchanges, then streamline the ecommerce terms which if retailera flout, can be found wanting or shamed.
Business / Re: Cashless Policy: Payporte Suspends Payment On Delivery by BlackBaron: 10:58am On Apr 04
Citizens of developed countries also have apprehension on buying items online viz a viz quality, description, etc. They however have statutory ts and cs to sort out problems.

This can be solved if statutory rights are taken seriously in Nigeria. This would cover refunds, returns and defects on items.
Unless you're a retailer you wouldn't understand how disadvantageous payment on delivery is.

Losing upwards of 80 grand in a month on a single product line alone due to pod (theft, robbery,etc) is no child's play. It's worst when you have no insurance policy to cover you. That's not taking into account other issues with unserious customers who disappear after sending their items from Lagos to obudu cattle ranch. They'll refuse to pick up their phones or tell you they travelled!

Politics / Re: Antonia Okafor Taking America's Political Scene By Storm by BlackBaron: 8:10am On Mar 31
This is not a very decent cause in my opinion.
America already has one of the biggest gun deaths in the developed world.
Massachusetts is probably the only outlier in the gun violence stakes in the US due to tough gun laws.

In general, American deaths per year are 3 times the death rates for countries already developed.

Note gun deaths also includes suicide, violence, mishandling, etc. It's no wonder, death can visit them faster than a bullet train takes to reach its destination.

What part of he has no links or even origin with Nigeria can't be understood. His step father only had to adopt him after marrying his mum who had previously bore Mr Khalid for another man, a non Nigerian.
