Diary of IT Men

A few weeks ago, I stumbled across another new interesting Myanmar blog on the internet. Diary of IT Men is a blog of a group of IT professionals from Myanmar. It started just a few months ago but I found a lot of interesting and useful articles on computer, internet and IT technology. The blog is hosted as a sub domain on myanmarbloggers.org. No, don’t go and try to find the website for www.myanmarbloggers.org. The website does not exist. But I found a number of subdomains on myanmarbloggers.org. The purpose of the domain name is to overcome the firewall set up by the Myanmar ISPs. [.....]  read more

Happy New Year 2008 to you all

Hi all dear friends. Happy New Year 2008. Another new year again. And another year. I don’t know what is awaiting us in 2008, but I am hoping for the best for all. Well, anyway, 2007 indeed was a pretty exciting year for all of us.

Yesterday, I was greeting 2008 in Nakhonpathom, that is a province 56 Km from Bangkok. Quite a large town. I was staying in my wife’s house for the New Year night. I didn’t go out, just stayed at home, as I was not so keen to go out at night, especially around New Year as people are more or less drunk. [.....]  read more

Farewell to Canon A-75

I bought my first digital camera in August 2004 while I was in Thailand. It was Canon A-75, a 3 mega pixel camera. It cost around 12,000 baht at that time, which is quite expensive for today’s standard, but quite inexpensive at that time. (Digital cameras three years ago were still not cheap). Since then, it has been with me everywhere I travelled, taking thousands of photos of all those memorable moments. It was small but produced great pictures. (I mean good quality photos). It always felt ease in my hand with all the controls at comfortable places. Moreover, it used four AA size batteries so I could buy spare batteries anywhere if I ran out of power, which was a great comfort in a country like Myanmar where there is no regular electricity. [.....]  read more
