Webmasters / Re: Has Anybody Done An Online Website Live Streaming by fewj(m): 11:56pm On Feb 26
Yes i have, heres what you'll need

Video source/video capture card
This could be either your laptop's web cam or a video camera connected to your computer through a USB cable or a firewire cable (some cameras come with special kinds of cables for this)

A streaming account
You could get a free account(with advertising) or a paid account from ustream.com or livestream.com. On getting the account, you can either stream live from your account on their website by selecting video source and generating an embed code or you could use any of these softwares as your streaming server (wirecast or flash media encoder (I prefer this)) and use your generated embed code to publish to your blog/website.

See here for further info on using flash media encoder with livestream.com

Webmasters / Re: The New Layout Of GtBank's Internet Banking Portal by fewj(m): 9:21am On Nov 29, 2013
Here's my own review of the new gtbank ibanking portal

Advantages
1. its been optimised for touch enabled devices (touch screen phones, touch screen computers/laptops and tablets)
2. The UI looks great
3. Spaces which used to be blank are now occupied by bank's ads (this is both an advantage & a disadvantage)

Disadvantages
1. Its surely slower, page size has grown at least 300% mostly due to the addition of photo adverts and a larger css file, poor configuration of IIS is also a major part of this problem

2. No new feature was added!!!!!!!!!!!!! sad angry

3. UX is now poorer due to the fact that what should ordinarily take one click to accomplish previously now take two to three clicks depending on the feature.

4. Typography in tables is still quite bad. When looking at transaction details and account statement, its quite unpleasant to read due to poor line spacing


Solution
1. Use text for adverts where possible and re-optimize pictures used
2. Add a new feature please!
3. Improve User Experience (UX)
4. Improve the typography on record tables
5. Check IIS configurations and make the proper adjustments
6. Adjust cache settings

Foreign Affairs / Re: Do You Support The Coming American War Against The Syria Assad Regime by fewj(m): 6:40am On Sep 08, 2013
thoth: When you write as if you are intimate with the Syrian Problem you fail to think about what you wrote translates to other people who are quite alienated from the situation as you are, judging from your recent post you still have to learnt the import of that.

My question remains the same , are you trying to isolate Syria and cast your judgments on the cause and solution of the conflict independent of the Syrian peoples own story, independent of the ruthless mornachies that surrounds and tried to influence it ?

I other words, you support US supplying weapons to Saudi Arabia and Bahrain to continuously kill its people and arm AL Qaeda but you support the same US going after Assad even though all their claims has no proof.

No i'm not trying to alienate syria, am not trying to say it has never had external influence, I am saying that is no excuse for President Assad to stay in office at the expense of so many lives!

I've never said I support everything the US does, they've used chemical weapons themselves, they turned a blind eye to Saddam gassing Iran, They promote gay marriage, and with all the many atrocities they've committed, Am just saying Assad needs to leave, this could either be done violently or peacefully, the earlier he goes, the better for the whole world!

Don't forget too that the Syrian government lied about owning chemical weapons for over 30years, they only admitted to it last year!

NO HUMAN BEING SHOULD KILL DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY ANOTHER HUMAN BEING FOR THEIR OWN BENEFIT!!! NOT FOR POLITICS NOT FOR BLOOD MONEY, NOT FOR ANY REASON!!!
Foreign Affairs / Re: Do You Support The Coming American War Against The Syria Assad Regime by fewj(m): 6:27am On Sep 08, 2013
NairaMinted:

1.Why did the attack coincide with the arrival of U.N. weapons inspectors and no rebels were killed?
You would think if Assad's forces was using it, they would aim to kill rebels - first and foremost and
civilian would be collateral damage.

2. Furthermore, you would think the Syrian army would have advanced and taken control of that area - given the
fact that they had supposedly fired chemical weapons into that area.

So why are the "rebels" still in control of that area?

Surely if you are an army commander who has just gassed the area of combatants and civilians, you would order
your men to go clear the area of any remaining resistance.

3. Lastly, what is the strategic importance of that area, that drove the Syrian army to resort to desperate measures like using chemical weapons.The Syrian army was already making considerable gains against the "rebels" in a conventional manner so why the sudden need to use chemical weapons?

As a matter of fact, it is the "rebels" themselves that have been caught using chemical weapons and when a similar but smaller attack was carried out in Aleppo, a leading UN Investigator voiced his suspicions that the "rebels" most likely were behind the attacks based on the accounts of the victims he spoke to.


It makes absolutely no sense, whatsoever, for Assad to use chemical weapons. He has the least to gain and the most to lose. He has been inflicting heavy losses on the rebels and pushing them back and retaking lost territories the conventional way .

Now the US and the international community (sic) is saying that the Syrian governments decision to allow the inspectors access to the site of this latest attack is “too little, too late”. Weren’t the UN investigators in Syria in the first place to investigate attacks purportedly carried about the rebels (sic) way back in March – over 5 months before the investigators arrived? Why is this two delay to reach the site such a sticking point all of a sudden? Mind boggling hypocrisy!!!
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khan_al-Assal_massacre

You seem to be asking the right questions for the most part of it, I wasn't in syria neither were you, we can only speculate. I'll answer your questions with more questions

1.Why did the attack coincide with the arrival of U.N. weapons inspectors and no rebels were killed?
You would think if Assad's forces was using it, they would aim to kill rebels - first and foremost and
civilian would be collateral damage.


There has been at least three reports of Chemical weapons usage, UN investigators went there to investigate the previous attacks, here are my questions

1. Is there a possibility the Syrian government arranged it this way to create doubt, such that the doubt created would make people doubt the previous use of chemical weapons?

2. Who said rebels didn't die?

3. Did President Assad directly order the use of chemical weapons or did the frontline soldiers and their commanders become desperate?

Furthermore, you would think the Syrian army would have advanced and taken control of that area - given the
fact that they had supposedly fired chemical weapons into that area.

So why are the "rebels" still in control of that area?


Lets say you're a Syrian Soldier, after using chemical weapons in an environment, you would quickly advance and take control of that area? Maybe you don't know what chemical weapons are. The question is, Even after the attack has been made public, why didn't they still advance?
They know what they did there, they are afraid it could affect them too!


Lastly, what is the strategic importance of that area, that drove the Syrian army to resort to desperate measures like using chemical weapons.The Syrian army was already making considerable gains against the "rebels" in a conventional manner so why the sudden need to use chemical weapons?

There is no strategic importance to the best of my knowledge, the Syrian army has been known to use desperate measures, infact thats what made a protest for reforms turn into a full blown war. The bombs being dropped by the Syrian air force are not cheap, Russia is making a fortune out of the war, they're selling the weapons to the syrian government, yet syrian government drops tones of bombs daily in syria

If the Syrian government has nothing to hide, it would have allowed inspectors access long ago, the evidence may have been tampered with by both the government and nature (wind, rainfall and sun).

The war so far has been going in a seesaw manner, sometimes its the rebels that are gaining ground and vice versa

thoth:

I fail to make sense of your post , are you saying that Syria should be a priority when there are more serious situations in the middle east ?

Where did I say this? That Syria should be a priority? angry

Are you saying you can simply isolate Syria and then cast your judgements without factoring the effect of outside influences like Saudi Arabia and Kuwait ?

Where did I also say this? shocked no dey lie for my head o angry

If you people are so bias in your love for America and would rather not see the truth but an isolated evil Syria then please leave them ALONE to settle their problems. It is like accusing a person of molest without a molest victim. God! how can you people be so low.

Am seriously beginning to wonder if its my post you're responding to (as in what I write) or you're responding to someone elses, 99.9% of the things you said I said in your last two post, I never said or even implied them!!!

Its not propaganda or anything else for that matter, Its simple reasoning, Nobody, I repeat NOBODY should hold onto power at the expense of so many lives, not Obama, not Putin and definitely not Bashar Hafez al-Assad!

Ubenedictus: and who said it must be democracy everywhere?

Lol, funny enough, Syria is practising democracy, Bashar Hafez al-Assad is a democratically elected president, He is a member of the Ba'ath Party .

He has been President since 2000, when he succeeded his father, Hafez al-Assad, who led Syria for 30 years prior to his death.

Amazingly, Everyone thought and hoped he was a reformer when he took office cheesy
Foreign Affairs / Re: Do You Support The Coming American War Against The Syria Assad Regime by fewj(m): 3:56pm On Sep 07, 2013
thoth:

Isn't it funny that you specifically carved out a country that actually has a room for political parties, cast votes, and has more freedom than Nigeria in many sectors of its Social Structure...then just like your western Hegemonic Friends(whom obviously has brainwashed you)..you see nothing in Absolute Dictatorial Monarchies all over the middle east where monthly execution of activists are the norm, where no form of protest is allowed, where national resources and national revenue is a family property to be lavished and looted as they please.

You see nothing against Sadist and Mass Executionists like KING Hamad ibn Isa of Bahrain whom is a strong ally of the WEST.
You see nothing against Sadist King Abdullah bin Abdul‘aziz of Saudi Arabia whom will execute more than 4 families in the public just to teach a lesson to anybody that tries to challenge his families authority to rule..and whom is also a very strong ally of the west.

you see nothing against the Monarchs of Kuwait- Emir Sabah al-Ahmad , Jordan - King Abdullah II (child killer) , Oman - Sultan Qaboos bin Said ... all these families has been ruling for years as long as we can remember and are strong allies of USA, these same dictators whom hold absolute power over the life and death of any of their citizen, above all laws, above all court, above everybody else and riles in their barbarity as a way to sustain power.

You see nothing in all these people...only Syria where there is freedom and democracy, where the people actually stood for their leader. YOU are either a Hypocrite with no conscience or just ignorant of the truth.

If this was an exam, you would have failed woefully! cheesy
We're talking of Syria here, we've not mention Jordan, Behrain, Kuwait etc as u mentioned, so how do you know that I see nothing wrong in what they're doing? grin So you can read minds and situations abi? Can you please tell me where I left my BB charger, I've been looking for it since yesterday angry

In my opinion. lets call a spade a spade, don't compare monarchical system of government to those which are supposed to elect leaders, they're two different things, don't mix them up.

In the initial protest, syrians asked for reforms!!! Not even for Assad's removal!

He could have promised to do those reforms just as Jordan's monarchy did during its own protest, or could have stepped down like other "victims" of the Arab spring did! He did none of both! cry

As bad as Nigeria "seems" to be, ASUU can go on strike and they're not jailed for it, We can protest the total removal of subsidy and our "bad" government makes some adjustments! Why didn't GEJ order the army to start beating and shooting protesters during the subsidy strike/protests?

Like I said "As much as i would not want to see a single bomb dropped in Syria, I would really love to see Assad's military capabilities grossly reduced, that would most likely reset his brain! angry"

I think Russia should offer asylum to assad and corner him to take it by withdrawing or limiting their support for him. He must not be the one to lead Syria, No be only him or him family fit lead!

The destiny of Syria at this time now lies with Russia, president Obama is using one stone to kill three birds by waiting for congress to approve or disprove a strike.

1. By waiting, he's trying to save his head by making congress a part of the decision just incase poo pops

2. He's also trying to shift the blame to the U.S congress for the bad things that have happened in Syria and that may still happen just incase congress votes against the war

3. He's giving Russia, China and the Asad regime an ultimatum to make any last minute improvement of the situation, if they don't, its their inability to solve the crisis after 2 years of his long patience that has led to the war, Barack Obama is a very sharp guy.......lol

I strongly believe the Assad regime used the chemical weapons for the following reasons

1. Chemical weapons aren't cheap, they're a closely guarded secret else everyone would have them, even al qaeda does not have chemical weapons, hezbollah, Israel's sworn enemy doesn't either, "our own" boko haram doesn't, if they did, they would have used it at least once in history.

2 . Syria as a nation has gassed its own people before, as a matter of fact it was done by Assad's father! As they say, history has a way of repeating itself

3. Syria is one of five states that have not signed and seven that have not ratified the Chemical Weapons Convention, which prohibits the development, production, stockpiling, transfer, and use of chemical weapons, Syria as a nation has invested billions into the development and testing of chemical weapons, you don't spend that such amount of money, time and manpower on something without the intention of using it!

4. On July 23, 2012 Syria admitted to possessing a stockpile of chemical weapons which it claims are reserved for national defense against foreign countries. During the Syrian civil war in August 2012, the Syrian military restarted chemical weapons testing at a base on the outskirts of Aleppo. It was at this time, Barack Obama mentioned that usage of chemical weapons in the syrian crisis would lead to military intervention by the US.

A number of reasons have been postulated for Syria's adoption of a chemical weapon strategy in the 1980s:

1. To act as a deterrent to Israeli use of nuclear weapons against Syria

2. To compensate for the loss of Egypt as a military ally after the signing of the Egypt–Israel Peace Treaty in 1979

3. After recognising the limitations of Syrian air power against Israel in the 1982 Lebanon War, Syria adopted an alternative missile strategy, which required a non high-explosive warhead

4. To compensate for lack of missile accuracy

5. To act as a deterrent to its powerful neighbour Turkey in any possible dispute.

I wish all Syrians well, I pray for those who have lost lovers, parents, children etc May God grant them the fortitude to bear the loss

The al-Assad family has ruled Syria since Hafez al-Assad became President of Syria in 1971 and established an authoritarian regime under the control of the Ba'ath Party. After his death in 2000, his son Bashar succeeded him, this is a typical situation of a country being ruled by one family, is this not dictatorship?
