Politics / Re: Militants Protesting Non Payment Of Salary(pic) by BlackBaron: 10:50am
The mess that is this country... Smh.

After all the vandalism, violence and all of the faux ND struggle, the outcome was we managed to embolden those that were willing enough to carry guns and start paying them off monthly like a sort of extortion racket.

The villages closest to the oil wells are not any better today only but only the pockets of cold rogues and robbers. Don't pay them and they'll make life uneasy for others until they get their way.

Politics / Re: Why Has Saharareporters Abandoned The APC? by BlackBaron: 6:44pm On Dec 17
I think SR has been hitting everyone hard irrespective of party affiliations.

They'd also wrote about Aregbesola's forgery and Tinunbu's criminal records in the states. Mostly they have also squared it out with this government and sometimes even publish ridiculous stories.

NYSC / Re: Pics: Corps Member Builds & Tests Drone In Osun, Critics Say It’s Made In China by BlackBaron: 3:51pm On Dec 17

Since you know what you re talking about, give us an an example of a MILITARY drone built by a university and/or a student. I emphasized the MILITARY cos you've seen to have suddenly developed amnesia concerning the fact that your major criticism was that the drone built by the corp member cannot be used by the military
Yep. I'll have to Google that for you too.
Don't waste my time bros.

Were u expecting a single corp member to build a military drone Guy that is what a whole corporation like NASA and NSA does. You dnt expect a single corp member to do that. What i expect is the govtment to sponsor and fund him to develop it to military standard.
Students and universities regularly build drones with or without government support in serious climes.

Quoting NASA and NSA shows you don't know what you're writing about.

Most of these excessive celebrations are to keep up with the jonesses.

I've also with my very ears listened to a Nigerian woman ask that people buy aso ebi for her 18 year old daughter's birthday.

The truth is after all the spending you'll find that they probably financed it on a credit card!

Don't mean to rain on his parade but that thing is no where near a drone that can be used as a military drone.
That stuff won't last an hour in the sky, cannot carry payload and very limited altitude.

Of course, there are also self assembly drone kits, but if he sourced all parts locally and assembled all himself then kudos to him.

Let's see something more advanced, with our current BH problem, build EOD (bomb) robots as an example as a collective university project. Kit them up with tracks, hydraulics, talon arms, running on possibly Linux. Make a control station too.
Then...

Phones / Re: My Experience With My New Sony Xperia Z3, Fvck Ios & Iphones Togethe; 5s Or 6!!! by BlackBaron: 12:43pm On Dec 12
spikesC:
The difference between Z2 and Z3 is the camera focus width, a slightly upgraded processor and Z3 has integration to your ps4 console which enables you play your ps4 on the smartphone.
Choosing the Z2 would be a better choice as, I predict, the ps4 integration will still come as an app to the Z2.
Z2 already has remote play and upgraded to 4.4.4 including almost all new Sony features available on the z3.

Interestingly the z2 &z3 are the same only seperated by cosmetic touch up.
I'm tired of new smartphones at the moment, very marginal upgrades by way of processor, camera or so.

However I may change my mind when we maybe get a Tegra K1 equavalent.

Politics / Re: What Will President Goodluck Jonathan Be Remembered For? by BlackBaron: 9:15am On Dec 10
He'll be remembered for riding on a unicorn whilst the country burned ; living in an alternate universe where he offered his own version of events parallel to that of the population.

Indecisive, insincere and lacking leadership qualities, the history books are writing out his legacy

Business / Re: 25 Hot-in-demand Non-oil Products To Export From Nigeria by BlackBaron: 8:57am On Dec 10
I don't think poultry is something to be exported, you'll lose out to cheaper imports from other countries. Poultry prices are still relatively expensive here and their production rates unreliable. KFC mcD and so all import their chickens due to the 2 factors and more.

Shrimps again is a dodgy one, not enough to go round but want to export? Besides Nigerian shrimps are banned in some countries.
Politics / Re: Tinubu A Corrupt Thief, Obasanjo Blasts In New Book by BlackBaron: 8:51am On Dec 10
Even a long dead Egyptian Pharaoh knows Tinunbu is corrupt.

If someone credible (surely not Ebele) wins these coming Presidential election, I'll like to see him face the full force of the law. For that we need relatively strong and robust institutions which unfortunately may not be there right now.

Don't know weather it belongs to NA or BH>>>>>>>All i know this a burnt T-55

Second time I'm seeing pics of a burnt out T55.
If Nigerian Army's, they should move with better protected T72s followed by infantry, again supported by other T72s and maybe shilkas, T55 or even a UR 77 if we had them.

They have no atgms, BH only has Rpg 7s at most, they'll have to come closer to the units which is plain suicide since other armoured units not too far from them would wipe out any attack. Air support too would not be bad.
Politics / Re: Each Nigerian Legislator Earns N30 Million Per Month by BlackBaron: 12:16pm On Dec 09
This topic has been rehashed in various forms, headings, titles and so over the years.

Very soon, an obligatory horde of commenters would probably huff and puff, rant and scream. Then they'll all just go back to their lives.
Take it or leave it, most Nigerians are suffering from a form of institutionalized complacency. Stories like this go forth everyday, yet after ranting and shoving they all just settle back into the same mess!

Android users should have a sort of anti theft software like Cerberus and or a pin lock on the home screen. That way you can at least track your phone, take photos of it and get very accurate gps triangulation of your smartphones whereabouts.

Jonathan's case is like the story of an underachiever. A man who tried to con his electorates about his perceived abilities yet failed on so many fronts.

His achievements above;fair enough look good on paper but in theory it's like a case of given +2 and then subtracting 7 at a later date.
Basically worse off than started...



And can the dude above me stop posting gore and deaths or are you some sort of lunatic?!

Politics / Re: Ex-pdp National Chairman, Gemade, Joins APC by BlackBaron: 11:58am On Dec 06
Lack of ideologies is the reason 'devils and saints' can easily cross political parties in Nigeria. It's all for a common goal; a means to accrue wealth! If Ibori and Alams asked to join, they'll probably get admitted!

Even though Jonathan's administration has been terrible, the opposition is yet to seize or offer alternative policies. Bar the strict anti corruption drive we urgently need, they've not yet given any other manifesto that'll incline people to them.
Politics / Re: Nigeria Finalises Deal For 1 To 2 Squadrons Of JF-17 Fighter Jets by BlackBaron: 6:38pm On Dec 03
Cannonleo:

defence web evaluated it plus check other aircraft it is stated if their range is increased by additional drop tabks..plus note that it is imperative that a drop tank on station 4 under the fuselage must be attached in every combat flight unless ARM(anti runway missions)
I'm asking because relative to other fighter jets in its wake, It seems to possess 'magical range'. The RD 33 engine is not exactly efficient and on the Mig 29 has lesser range, so how does a single engined fighter jet exceed that of his parent engine?
Politics / Re: Nigeria Finalises Deal For 1 To 2 Squadrons Of JF-17 Fighter Jets by BlackBaron: 6:27pm On Dec 03
Cannonleo:

Combat radius: 1,352 km (840 mi)
Ferry range: 3,482 km (1,880 NM) without drop tanks

That is Wikipedia info sir. smiley
Politics / Re: Nigeria Finalises Deal For 1 To 2 Squadrons Of JF-17 Fighter Jets by BlackBaron: 6:12pm On Dec 03
So what is the true 'ferry range' of the JF-17. In almost all pictures I've seen, they can be seen equipped with at least 3 1000L fuel tanks. Therefore, conclusion is that most of the current range we know is WITH drop tanks attached. What then is the true range?

Consider also that it uses a RD 33 engine (same as the MIG 29), single engine. Attaching drop tanks leaves us with more hardpoints, though I reckon it'll be used and maintained well within the radius of the current BH issue.

If the range was as stated, why did the Chinese also go one leg over considering it would have been more suited to cover the Chinese mainland over the J-10
