Satellite TV Technology / Re: Solar Energy, A Complement To FTA by BlackBaron: 7:34pm On Oct 27
@Zeestone99,(Already chatted a bit yesterday) GeorgeD1 (has the most extensive SP project here I think)

Please, can I indulge your knowledge about building a good solar power project.

I have read and still learning about SP. I am looking for one in excess of 4KW plus or more (if needed)to run a bungalow or two. Items such as fridge, tv, low energy LED, washing machine(?), microwave (?)

Say I had the opportunity to purchase all I wanted from abroad at a fairly cheap price, would that make a lot of difference versus buying all from Nigeria?
I have possibilities of getting via eBay or Gumtree for example
solar panels
deep cycle batteries (from AGM to lead acid)
Inverter

Would just like to draw on your knowledge on what could be bought to make this set up a very good and worthy setup.
Satellite TV Technology / Re: Solar Energy, A Complement To FTA by BlackBaron: 3:14pm On Oct 24
Hi guys.
I read this section from time to time. Was wondering on how to go about starting off with solar power. What is(are) the best company(ies) out there in terms of reliability, plus what are the costs involved for a mid level to elaborate installation.

Electrical items such as fridge, freezer, tv, washing machine (?), light and so.

I like the Ara and hope to see more modifications on it, the headlights right now are too low and should be higher.

EDIT: Never mind, can see the new fog lights affixed on top.
I think Proforce must be visiting this thread and taking suggestions.

Henry240:

The material used inside, what sort of material is that?

Material is like some sort of 'quilt' I think. Would be good if it were to also be fire retardant.

the Russian general was not killed as a result of ambush but shells fired from a howitzer.
You do know the Russian General was killed not by an ambush but on the frontline right. The last picture of him was during the crossing of the Euphrates. The terrorists were only separated by the river.
It's different from getting hit from behind son.

Do you police unpopulated areas?

We could probably borrow a handbook from others. There's also vast pockets of unpopulated areas between Damascus to Deir ez zor, yet those areas got swept and secured. The last pockets of enemy concentration are currently sieged and getting attacked daily.

It's like over here, we don't have a clue or know the clear extent of the terrorist groups. And if we do, then it's clear that the hierarchy is not fit to hold their office when they do not have a solution to the problem.
Foreign Affairs / Re: African Militaries/ Security Services Strictly Photos Only And Videos Thread by BlackBaron: 8:40pm On Oct 08
Knowing very little of the NA dynamics with BH but can we not have a sustained offensive to actually capture land, police it and retain it.
If we actually already do this, then is it down to bh cells which we do not seem to have checkmated.

Hiding and unleashing an AA gun against troops should be nigh on impossible in areas already captured by our army.

Crime / Re: Have You Ever Been In A Physical Fight Before? Share Your Experience! by BlackBaron: 9:44am On Sep 30
Had fights while in secondary school.

The most memorable was from a kid who grew up in the barracks. While squaring up, I got a punch I didn't see coming, got hit in my stomach possibly in my liver or diagphram which took the wind out of me. The fight ended at that moment.

The pain unbearable and for minutes I could not get up. Could hardly walk afterwards for a few hours.

Travel / Re: How People In Nigeria See Their Brothers Living Overseas (Photo) by BlackBaron: 2:14pm On Sep 29
No one has told them how much people abroad pay on rent, transport, phone bills, tax, etc

£1000 or Euros, a single room might go for £350-£700 depending on area, then transport, phone bills, food, etc, How much are you left with?

Make una leave beeg o. He probably lost passion for it and there it was. Wasn't exactly inspiring then with the lacklustre commitment from the armed forces in regards to purchase, modernisation and all that.

Still bits of blogs out there, love Peccavi's analysis and checking out the photos or news about Nigerian armed forces in this section.
Politics / Re: Buhari Signs Proclamation Proscribing IPOB by BlackBaron: 12:26pm On Sep 19
Criticised IPOB in the past especially with the hate speeches at the beginning and some of their modus operandi. Kanu for starters started out extremely vile and distastefully to almost all major tribes bar none.
While I do not accept its proscription relative to much criminal groups like the 'militant arm' of fulani herders.

I believe IPOB should also study separate groups in the past such as 'ETA' which progressively moved from non violence to violence. Killing and burning a police officer and police station respectively is a tendency of a group probably trying to tip over to get more attention from the government. The government too typical of excesses of security agencies ignored their rules of engagement and wrongly killed quite a number of people.


Does Nigeria need restructuring? Fuccking yes. however, it needs to start from us we having gained enough wisdom and electing the right people who can push our agendas collectively than this batch of rogues who ignore promises as soon as in power.
Politics / Re: Why I Will Support Atiku Abubakar For President In 2019 by BlackBaron: 7:39pm On Sep 09
“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results.”
Please is this a sign of diminished IQ in Nigeria or some sort of curse to keep all their options to the same failed set of leaders?

Buhari, Jonathan, Atiku are just another collection of rhetorics, all mouth, no manifesto or blueprints. These leaders throw their hats in the ring only because they have the clouts or they have a useless godfather backing them.

This thread is probably the longest d#$k measuring contest between Nigeria and South Africa. Can't we just get along?

Anyway, keep the pics coming folks.
Probably due to the dearth of plentiful pictures/video of African armed forces in general. The next best thing is the argument.

Best believe it, this is what oils the cog of this thread.

Car Talk / Re: Innoson IVM 4×4 Carrier Is Not Manufactured In Nigeria. He Rebranded The Logos. by BlackBaron: 12:34pm On Sep 09
#Everything is sadly viewed from an ethnic prism. If you are going to be foolish with less than ideal dimished IQ, pointless quoting me cos I won't answer.

Besides rebadging is a global practice. Honda Accord and Acura TSX are basically same. Only made in different countries.
The most important bit is Innoson does have licence to produce like any other in the past.
Car Talk / Re: Innoson IVM 4×4 Carrier Is Not Manufactured In Nigeria. He Rebranded The Logos. by BlackBaron: 9:01am On Sep 09
This was known in most circles. Its called badge reengineering.

However still a mighty big risk for any business man to attempt car assembly in Nigeria on his own without government support, an area even Dangote has dared not.
That's where he should be commended...

Looking at that scratched Ratel, I wonder if other countries take armour maintainance very serious.
Forgot to add the context, Wear and tear of war I guess. Those are frontline soldiers fighting BH.


In other news, with deployment of soldiers and mechanised hardware to the SE, I hope rules of engagement are properly drilled down. Mishaps may scuttle any recently approved arms deal with the Americans.

Please let some calm down about we suddenly becoming the 'bestest' in the whole region or Africa after we acquire hardware or a blonde dude visits you.

Read this thread everyday and apart from the few pics available, the last few pages are more or less filled with arguments and some absolutely illogical at that.

Enough with the exaggeration of phantom capabilities or pseudo awesomeness carried over from lala land.

Politics / Re: It Is Not A Big Deal To Monitor Social Media Accounts Of Nigerians – Garba Shehu by BlackBaron: 2:53pm On Aug 29
I have no problem with crackdown on hate speeches but the weaknesses of institutions in Nigeria. Where is the guarantee that the Head or staff in this institution would not then operate outside of their jurisdiction by abusing their power for other reasons.

Before we know it, it'll become another political tool or another self styled 'J. Hoover'-esque type of operation.

Lol.

Looks too tacky for 10 grand. Plus after wear and tear of firefights, would be better placed in the back of your locker than wearing again.

On a more serious note, didn't know Chad had a rebel problem as well as having a satellite base for BH.

playboy19:


Slow down on them a little, this music is particularly for the American market and singing about narco is what their street is about, hence it features Gucci (known for his many troubles with the law). The Nigerian part of the song is just to navigate the best of both worlds within the same song. The song is ultimately for the yanks.

All in all, the song is dope as fvck. Currently have it on autoreplay.
Extolling such is why some of his community is still a shite hole despite the opportunities available to them in America. Very soon, we shall have our own singers praising our own version of the drug trade - kidnapping because it would be implied it is the only for us to survive in a tough Nigeria.
Music/Radio / Re: D’banj – El Chapo Ft. Gucci Mane & Wande Coal (official Video) by BlackBaron: 2:48pm On Aug 25
It isn't everything worth singing about...

This is as worse as it gets, a Nigerian singing 'Narco songs', a very divisive man in Mexico where the guy sang about is from and left their country in a semi civil war with the state about selling drugs.

It is a profound lack of talent if you think you should sing about drugs, coke, money.

AmadiAba:
It is the same argument why Buhari arrested Nnamdi Kanu and held in Kuje prison for almost 2 years.

As long as BSS has not broke any law, Buhari would be infringing on their right of freedom of association by 'crushing' them which would even further aggravate the problem.

The solution is not to crush them, the solution is dialogue.

Kanu's modus operandi is not the best with hate speeches at the onset which got him arrested. The government also exacerbated this by how they handled it.

However, you'll need to pick up a book and read on history. Things get worse when there are different parallel groups with opposing political aims of each security's constituency. Somalia, Libya, South Sudan etc are examples of where such types of groups exist...they're still burning today.

AmadiAba:
We have to come to a point where we recognize that Nnamdi kanu, IPOB and every Nigerian has the right to self determination. At the moment BSS has not broke any law in Nigeria to deserve crushing.

Self determination is a fundamental human right not treason. BSS is not an armed group and Nigerian constitution guarantees freedom of association. Call for referendum is not a call for war. Nigeria is not the first country to break up and it will not be the last, calling for Nigeria's break up is not a crime.

There is no country that can survive for long by holding people together by force. It didnt work in US, not in Britain, not in South Africa, it wont work in Nigeria. Dialogue is the only way forward.




You are failing to understand that is one step from anarchy. A group outside the control of any level of government. Secession or referendum, hopefully if we get a mature government can be negotiated, however it is worrisome if you think creating your own 'self styled' security service does not amount to treason. There is bound to be conflicts because you would probably try to say you follow your own constitution which would lead to run ins with another constitution.
