Travel / Re: QATAR And UAE General Visa Enquiries by jereal(m): 9:24pm On Jun 30
Hello good people,

I've seen this thread like a thousand times, but never really thought I was going to have any business with travelling to the UAE.

I got an invitation to attend a programme in Abu Dhabi, I'll need to be there for just a night or two at most. The organisers emailed me today saying they were unable to secure a for me visa due to age restrictions. I did a little googling & found out Nigerian nationals below the age of 40 are no longer eligible for the UAE visa.

I talked to the institution's local contact in Nigeria & I've been told that there's an agency that can help me with acquiring the visa, even though I'm under 40. I know going through agents is not encouraged here & confirming the genuineness of this agency is a different story all together.

My question is, is it possible in anyway for an under 40 year old Nigerian to secure a visa & travel alone?

I read some stories about how some people were removed even after boarding.

Yes. Stanbic allows you to do transfers and transactions through QuickTeller. Also, Stanbic has a seamless internet banking service. Transfer to other banks is charged at N75 while transfer within Stanbic is free.

Great...! Thanks for the info...

Hello guys,
It seems stanbic is winning hearts here, I use GT & of cos, their rates ain't so bad... But the major issue I have with GTbank is that I can't do interbank/intra-bank transfers on quickteller. I visited their branch once & asked why I couldn't do that, customer care told me that I'd have to get a token device or visit any of their branches whenever I wanted to do a transfer, as it will be done for me over the counter... Yeah, totally not cool...
I'd like to know if I can do these transfers with stanbic... @stanbic account holders

Guys so I got Pro Evolution Soccer 15, game is cool... But noticed lack of entrance scene and player substitution animation... I found a patch after a lot of googling & got the entrance cinematics working, but still no sub animation...

Anyone notice this...? & know a way to get the animation up...? Not that it matters anyway, still love the game...

tanks I will download another one with the Mingw and install it but I want to ask have u designed any application and have you finished with all the topics under the c++ language

I'm currently working on a simple record keeping app... & No, I'm nowhere close to finishing c++ topics, I'm still a beginner... If you can at least understand what classes & pointers are, I think you can start doing some things with Qt... While still studying your pure C++ materials...

guy just manage it after all u installed the game . Me myself i am playing the part 1 when i started i hated the game due to not having a xbox pad but when i got one the thing made sense.

You're right, I believe playing with a controller would make the experience a lot better...

Hi... Any assassin's creed fans here...? I just installed assassin's creed 3, & it's the first game in the series I'm playing... I've only played a few minutes & the game is looking like an open world setting...I was a bit surprised as I was expecting something like Prince of Persia...
So for folks who've played, is this what the game is gonna continue like...? As I'm not much into open world games...

What I intend to do is generate and print a report. I intend to design the report with Qt Creator, and then, sort of grab the form and print in A4 size. But I have a feeling I'm not going about it the right way... I saw QPdfWriter mentioned in a couple of places on the web, but can't quite figure it out.

@BlueMagnificent... Great job you're doing here... I remember a while back when I was trying to setup wxwidget too, anyway, I ended up going with Qt. its been great so far and I've been working on a project for a while now. But I'm having some difficulty achieving what I want with QPrintPreviewDialog... I'd post snippets if you can help me out.

So it's day six since I got the infinix hot, everything seems fine except for the fact that my back cover is beginning to make annoying creaking noises at the sides, towards the bottomangry

I may have popped open the back a couple of times, but it's still no reason...! Do other owners who who take off their back covers a lot, for one reason or the other experience this, or is it just me...?

alryt...so hws the phone overall performance including battery?

Overall performance is great, it has handled everything I've thrown at it quite well for a phone at this price... Plays FHD videos flawlessly...

As for battery performance, I guess you can't really get an objective answer about that from anyone... It all depends on what your expectations are... All I can say is that it performs as a 2000mAH battery on a large screen should perform...

nahh...u should not have uninstalled it.......download greenify frim playstore,open it and click on the chinese super su installed,then click hibernate..dats all..the english ome takes control...or u could use titanium to uninstall the chinese one

It turned out the superSU I installed earlier wasn't the correct one, or it was a clone... I got the correct one this time and it's now in charge of granting root permissions... Thanks...!

Reediano:

To replace it just download supersu by chainfire on playstore and use it to replace the Chinese version you have

guydangerous:
pls oh watin concern you with super su,that app is just there to grant third party application access to the phone which you tick or tap authorize or deny after which you are done with the app watin....... you wan brick your phone,or better still delete the super su apk and download super su in zip format don't extract,now boot to recovery mode and install zip from SD card which should be the super su (if you want to do this method let me know) or try download super su from play store or Google the English version,STAY CLEAR FROM CHAINFIRE 3D


guydangerous:
abeg my brother no spoil person phone ooo my goodness,you know no say chain fire dy brick android phones

Chainfire is the name of the developer of superSU, He didn't mean I should download "Chainfire 3D"... Nevertheless, I'll just stick with the Chinese version like yall suggested...and yes I did try superSU from playstore, but it didn't take control from thye already installed one, so I just uninstalled it...

It actually stopped at that after tapping the green button once...

I think the vroot is now iroot, I don't know... I was redirected to another page to download iroot instead...

Anyway, I just installed it, turned on USB debugging... The program detected and automatically downloaded the needed drivers since I didn't have mtk drivers installed...

Once installed, a green button with root written became active, I just clicked it, the phone restarted and rooting was done...

The Super user app installed is totally in Chinese... Is there a way to replace that...?
