volunteers needed

October 23, 2007

To kick things off we need some volunteers. We’ll have the following sections in the magazine.

• TV
• Music
• Games
• Movies
• Story
• Technology
• Science
• Sports
• Comics
• Flickr section (best pics of the month kinda thing)
• Blog section (best posts of the month)
• Art
• And any sections you want. Just tell us what you want to do. ( Like Nass wanting a heavy-metal section which would come under music. )

Now more than one person can contribute to a section. If you want to just write for a section it’s up to you. If you want to design the whole section that you wrote, you can do that as well.

So just send us an e-mail saying what section you want to do + how many pages it would contain + the basic idea of the content + whether you want to design the pages or not.

After we have gotten enough volunteers for each section we can decide a name among our selves and then we can start working on the magazine. Cheers.

more information on the magazine

October 22, 2007

Well guys thanks for all the support and ideas. Since you guys are up for it let’s talk about it more. Ok here is my idea.

This is an online magazine. This will be available for download in “PDF” format. The reason for this is if we publish these articles monthly on a webpage it won’t be a magazine. It would be ultimately a website that is being updated once per month yeah? This won’t be congested with blog posts that we have already read although we can have a column of best 5-10 blog posts per month. It should have original content. This is an independent magazine and is totally non-profit. This is from the Maldivian bloggers to the Maldivian people. The idea of the magazine is to show our ideas and thoughts about what is happening around us, a way for our voices are to be heard so to speak.

The whole idea around this magazine is ‘independence’. You’re welcome to submit whatever article you like unless it’s offensive in nature. You’re welcome to design the page for the article you are submitting. It will ultimately have your flavor to it, creating a sense of individualism to each page. The compilation of all the pages would show the creativity of an ‘Independent Nation’.

This is the whole idea behind this magazine and if you like this idea I’ll start work on it organizing the whole thing.

Project: Indie Nation starts now.

Note: This is by no means the name of the magazine. This is just a code name 😉

announcement..pls read

Hey guys. I’ve been thinking. How about having an online magazine kind of thing. A way for our voices to be heared by a wider audience. By we I mean us Maldivian Bloggers. It’s not like we are going to get paid. It’s just for the fun of it yeah? We have lots of free time on our hands, I can see that by looking at you guys blogs. It can have anything you know
– Current News
– Stories
– Games
– Tech
– TV
– Flickr stuff (like say best pics of the month kinda thing)
– Sports
– Music
– Your thoughts about any random topic
– Comics
– You name it
It can come out once a month and I think this could become pretty popular since I don’t think there is an online Maldivian magazine yet. So why not? Just a thought. Let me know what you guys think. Cheers.

finally installing ubuntu

October 19, 2007

Going on with my obsession to install Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon.

After going through these two hurdles.

Downloading

Fuck Microsoft

I have found a solution to my DVD burner problem.

It’s called WUBI. (Windows Based Ubuntu Installer)

You can install Ubuntu while working on Windows.

“Wubi adds an entry to the Windows boot menu which allows you to run Linux.Ubuntu is installed within a file in the windows file system ( c:wubidiskssystem.virtual.disk ), this file is seen by Linux as a real hard disk.”

Hopefully this works.

Edit: Still not installed. Waiting for WUBI for Gutsy Gibbon to come out. 

fuck microsoft

October 19, 2007

Fight ‘the man’. Become independent. Go open source. Install Ubuntu.

I still havn’t done it yet. Vista screwed me over.

Ol’ Gates saw this coming and locked my DVD burner.

So yeah you too Gates. You too.

ubuntu gutsy gibbon out as well!

October 18, 2007

Came out just now.

Time to throw out Vista.

Grab it here.

Although I think you should wait awhile. The server’s are going haywire.

edit: Finished downloading. Will put in some impressions later.
