OMG! Why I do not call into radio stations!

BustedNow, we are all aware of the OMG busted call. If not, read on. Now, today, for all those who know Thika Road, by the time a tiff on Classic 105 Radio lasts from Muthaiga, through the hole in Pangani, past the traffic in Ngara and ends when you reach Odeon, and all this is happening during morning rush hour, then it was one hell of a tiff. They even brought the news a whole 6 minutes late…just replaying it (seeing as it was definitely not live – for those who may not know, those calls are recorded to make sure that there are fit for the airwaves). It explains whey they played 3 whole songs before replaying the argument, which is unheard of in morning radio.

How To Hide Facebook’s Like Box Border (updated)

Adding a Facebook Like Box on a website is kind of becoming the norm in my trade nowadays. I do not know about you but I am normally having trouble getting rid of the borders or the iframe that you require. These borders normally have a bad look in a rounded corners styled module in Joomla! and other popular content management systems.

This tutorial will show you how to hide the border around the Facebook Like Box. It takes advantage of negative margins and the overflow property of CSS to hide the border of the Facebook Like Box under a container div.

[UPDATE]

I compiled below changes into an easily installable Joomla module. So, find below a download link to the module for Joomla 1.7/2.5

How to Link to an Article in Joomla!

jce_logoFor some reason, linking to an article in Joomla! seems like something that should be obvious but surprisingly it is not. I have been approached quite a number of times to help people link their Custom HTML modules to an article in Joomla! and normally the trouble comes in when for whatever reason, the article to be linked does not have a menu item on the front end of the site, so one cannot go and copy the article link. I did some research, trying to find easy ways of doing this said linking, and I have come up with some two solutions, which I think should work for anybody in this predicament. So, here we go.

Lovely App! Crappy Site!

pesadroidSo today, via Facebook, I land on a great Andriod app! PesaDroid! Well, all it does is give you a nice view of all your M-Pesa transactions, taking data form the messages on the phone. I have no doubt that the developers of the app worked quite hard on it and it is a wonderful app but my God, their website! Pesadroid.com is not a site to visit. It has put a new benchmark on just how crappy a site can be. I mean, these guys should have just stuck to giving people the android market link coz at least there, they can leverage the look of the marketplace. Their one page site is just something that should be taken off the net! Like immediately! Trust me, if I had seen their site before installing the app, I would not have installed it coz their site is just a joke!

ICC trials vs MegaUpload Takedown

megaupload-logoYeah, I can tell you for a fact that the Kenya twitter-verse, and blog-verse, and any other ‘verse’ that this country may have is all buzzing about the ICC and the cases that have been recently been confirmed on some powerful local politicians but frankly speaking, that news is not on my mind right now. MEGAUPLOAD HAS BEEN TAKEN DOWN! This is just after a victorious ‘sites black out’ petition against SOPA and PIPA in the states. Clearly, I think the thing to take home from this is in as much as the initial battle for protecting a free internet may have been won, the war is nowhere near over!
