Hmm, that's serious. . .
I will make more research into the matter!
As to why guillotine, I wanted to have more insight on the gimmick that was designed to wipe out the French Monarchy.
Just watched a Series Movie on "Tudor" about King Henry and I was intrigued at the thought that the same traditions held
by the British all those years ago, were still reserved to this day, while the French as Spartacus would say, "Killed Them All" with the Guillotine.
Obviously the French Monarchy must have been EVIL!
Wonder if the same thing can happen in Nigeria? What device would we create for that?

|Programming / Re: Is This What Big IT Firms Do? Please Help Me Out Nairaland Programmers by sweet-pawn: 6:28pm On May 11, 2012|
Pls do! I would love to see the original concept! It would be such an irony that a body supposed to serve justice and promote fair-play would themselves be unscrupulous!
|Programming / Re: Is This What Big IT Firms Do? Please Help Me Out Nairaland Programmers by sweet-pawn: 10:51am On May 11, 2012|
Its a pity what has happened, but then again, its also a good thing! When something bad happens that seems to want to break us, it's really a motivation force for us. Every thing I know today, was because of some dissapointment which motivated me to know more. So right now, its time for you to develop and market your own idea.
Its a shame that in this country, there is no platform for guys like you who have brilliant ideas, to implement them without being involved in the process themselves(so if you have an engineering idea, you should be an engineer, a software idea, a programmer etc) where as in developed counties, you can actually be paid huge sums for having your idea used and not even being involved in the implementation of the idea.
What you need is to have the software developed for you, but its you that will market it yourself so that you can first reap the benefits of its sales.You could even be a vendor and sell the product to IT firms(Of course copyright protection will be implemented to prevent the software from being pirated). It will be difficult, but it will work.Yes its true that established IT firms have the resources to market the product better than you, but you see, what is good and useful, is simply good and useful and everybody that is chanced to see the thing will know that he/she needs to get it cos it will be good and useful for his/her business! How I wished you met with some programmer first before you went to the so called "big" company. They simply looked for a way to put you out of the picture so that they could have it all for themselves!(Pure Evil! )
But you see, since you are the originator of the idea, its your passion that will sell the product. The product its your baby and like any good parent,you and only you will know how to improve on your brain child-that's what the it firm cannot do. They will not be able to make an effective "Version 2" because the idea wasn't theirs, but you can add those magical features to your own version so that even if the two products stood side by side, it would not be a matter of choice for the client to pick the one he/she wants cos yours will have all the extras that the other guys could not think about.
So that's the solution to your problem. Get your idea on paper.Do reach me @ sweetpawn(at)gmail.com so we talk more. Do not be sad, it's just life's way of telling you that your idea is the stepping stone to your life's success and that you should endeavor to implement it at all costs.
Your like a programmer-less Bill Gates with great ideas, that's why the Good Lord provided folks like us who can take away the "-less" for you! It will be well!

|Webmasters / How Did Google Make This Cool Google Doodle And Can U Make Urs? by sweet-pawn: 2:47pm On Apr 24, 2012|
Was browsing as usual today when I saw this cool doodle by Google on their home page. Today is the birthday of the guy the that invented the zipper and what a cool way to celebrate it on Google!
Seriously, I loved the effects!You can see what they did from the picture and the short video that I uploaded below.
My question to web designers is this: How did they do it and could you demonstrate it with yours own example?

|Webmasters / Re: MOUAUCEET: Now a Bookie aff8. by sweet-pawn: 3:46pm On Apr 07, 2012|
Well, to be technical, you claim that your site "seems to be" the most beautiful site, which means that you are not sure yourself and hence you DO expect that it MAY NOT be the most beautiful site in the country!
Well I will not say your site is horrible. Its not bad. . .but then its not that great either!
There's nothing so bad about your site, just that after you said it could be the most beautiful website from the Most Populous Black Nation on Earth, one was expecting to be wowed!
As for me,I would be lying if I said I was wowed. I truly really wasn't. And so were the many others who have given their opinion here!
Take http://www.questng.com/ for example. Even you would agree that the layout of the site looks more visually appealing to the eyes than yours! If the website were girls, I would "toast" http://www.questng.com/ more cos she was more pretty than http://www.mouauceet.com ! And I know for a fact that there would be more beautiful ones out there!
So it seems that your claim to having developed the most beautiful site on the Nigerian webosphere is very contestable!
That's what I think O! But at the same time, its not the most horrible site as well, as some folks here are claiming! Guess they were just a bit disappointed at what they saw. It's okay sha. But its definitely not the most beautiful, truth be told!

|Jobs/Vacancies / Re: Help Needed, I Just Lost My Job Recently by sweet-pawn: 6:08pm On Feb 18, 2012|
This is the reason why if you are really looking for help, do not post your problems on NL, it will leave you more depressed.
Cool down. Go to your woman. Assure her that everything will be well, only that some things will change. Your mission might have been shaken, but your vision in life should not be stirred. NEVER, NEVER feel depressed, no matter what! The fact that you are alive means that you have a chance to grab a big slice of cake from the Shylock Merchant called Life!
Everything starts with your mindset. Surround yourself with negative thoughts and you get negative results, the opposite is the case as well. The BIG MAN UPSTAIRS does not sleep and does not do mistakes. Always remember that. Everything happens for a good reason.
So please do not be depressed. You will reject job offers, when you put on a positive mindset because you will have so many. You will see opportunities that you would never had bothered to explore had it been you were stuck behind the cubicle of a bank. Your life will get a Positive Turn Around. And you will always remember how you OVERCAME the challenge which is why you may decide to give your child a befitting name that will describe your impending success.
So please tell Madam not to cry again. She is about to see the true fighting spirit of the warrior of a husband she married and she will grateful she met you and will never cry again no matter what happens, because of you.
May the Fortunes and Blessings and All Good Things of this Life be with you, Amen.

Proposal of the topic: The Post Office Vacancy Notification System | Statement of the Problem Example.
Note: Words written in brackets () are comments made by me to you and not a part of the Section Write up.
1.2 STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
(Take note on how the section is numbered and titled in block)
(First I will use a paragraph to introduce the list of problems with their outlines)
There however exist certain issues associated with getting information about the availability of jobs by the job seekers. These problems are outlined and discoursed in brief detail below:
(Now I will list and explain the problems)
1. Cost of Transportation: [/b]The cost of transportation by the applicants consistently paying visits to the post office to look for a job can run into a lot of cash. As long as they do not have a job or are looking for a better one, they will feel obligated to find time to go the post office to take a peek at the notice boards to find vacancies for which they can apply for.
2. [b]Lack of access to fresh vacancy information: Many an applicant has missed the opportunity to get a job for which they were qualified for, because of lack of immediate information on the availability of a vacancy. Often the news of a job offer will be heard weeks after it had been displayed in the post office notice board giving the applicants little time to submit their applications.
3. Distance from the post office: For those living in locations far away from the post office, the problem of distance comes into play as applicants living beyond the close proximity of the post office would be at a major disadvantage to get jobs as those living nearby will always have the privilege of getting the jobs due to their faster access to vacancy information from the post office.
4. Lack of Remote Business Transaction by Employers: It is impossible for business owners to have access to the job advert services of the post offices without physically visiting the premises of its building. This makes it difficult or very near well impossible for businesses operation beyond the close proximity of the post office to benefit from their job information service.
5. Stale Information: Due to inefficient services caused by inefficiency of the individual or individuals in the post office responsible for managing the job adverts notification section of the office, there can be frequent occurrences of having stale and expired job vacancies still being displayed on the notice boards which would lead many applicants on a fruitless and wasted venture.
There ends our example on how to state the problems in the proposal. Next we shall look at the next section on the proposal list, the Aims and Objectives.
|Business / Re: Your experiences with the UBA Naira Visa Africard by sweet-pawn: 3:02am On Feb 04, 2012|
The best way to do anything is to get it done yourself! Do not wait for others to go forward before you start moving!
You can use N2000 and get the card and use ATM to withdraw your money back!
Then goto the sites and test it yourself. You will only loose some change during the process but you would have satisfied your curiosity!
Go ahead try it!
Now, I am happy cos I made a move and I am reaping the benefits of my experiment.
|Business / Re: Your experiences with the UBA Naira Visa Africard by sweet-pawn: 6:39pm On Feb 01, 2012|
Ah! Just got my UBA AfriCard now.
Took me 2 days!
No. It's easy to get!
It's like buying a sim card and loading it with money. When you make calls, its the money from your sim card that is charged not your bank account. So if the money on your sim is finished, you will just reload!
So you first apply for the card.
You will be given a form to fill.
You will asked for you passport photograph(1 copy) and your ID card.(Driver's License, National ID card, etc)
Select which card you want(instant card-i.e no name, you get it faster or personalized card-You name will be on it like your ATM card)
Then you will be asked to pay money (You can pay any amount I assume. I tested the bank officer by saying 1000 and she said :why not make it 2000? So I paid 2000 - You could pay less than that if you insist, especially if you want to test the card for the first time.)
When you are given the card(Mine took 2 days-I applied yesterday and got it today- and I live very far away from Lagos and Abuja so if you live there, I am guessing that the quality of service will be faster?) you will be told to change the pin, like your ATM. There is also a web pin for internet based POS that require it.
There is a number that you will be shown. this number is used as the account number of the card. So you can deposit money into any UBA branch with that account number and it will be funded to your card.
You can also withdraw money from it like your normal ATM, but the money will be the one you loaded into the card.
Will start to use it and give feedback on its performance. . .
|Business / Re: Your experiences with the UBA Naira Visa Africard by sweet-pawn: 9:51am On Jan 30, 2012|
Questions, questions and more questions!
In short I don vex. I am getting my card today!
I will answer my own questions myself!

|Religion / Re: What Do You Think Will Happen By December 21, 2012(so Called End Of World) by sweet-pawn: 4:54pm On Jan 27, 2012|
Oh no, the world will not end, as in, be destroyed-we still have some time left before that time- but surly that time period, 12-12-12(Twelveth day of the twelveth month of the twelveth year of a century) certainly marks the end of something and a beginning of another. . .
Consider the dates, we can have:
But we can never have: 13-13-13!
So for the day, month and year to repeat themselves, we have to start all over again at 01-01-01 which will always happen in a century.
So even this simple calender maths points to the fact that something is about to end.
All I can say is Brace Yourselves people!
Personally I believe that date is the time when all the vices of this earth and the catastrophes will have spread over all parts the world that a forceful reset will have to be done to avert the danger of total collapse. Just like what happened to Sodom and Gomorrah. The earth did not end with the destruction of the people who lived there, but some chosen few were called to continue and spread over the earth (Lot + Rest of his family - His wife x The 2 angels).
I think a similar thing will happen on that date. The wicked and evil will be purged out of the land and those who are not necessarily wicked but are comfortable with the state of things and want to remain as they are, will suffer the same fate as Lot's wife (I do not know if they will turn to salt, but I bet if they did, some sharp men will start to sell the salt in the market as table salt, Maybe they will turn to pepper? Why Lot's wife had to turn to salt of all minerals I do not know! These are some things I would love to have asked my pastors to explain, but they are too busy slapping folks and swearing for folks or just graciously begging us to give them money and jeep and jet and fuel for their vehicles while we pay public transport and suffer and smile!
Abeg, let that day come. I dey wait am in anticipation. i have nothing to hide, nothing to loose. Lord come and do with me as you please on that day! My conscience is my shield!
