Today's the day when Light triumphs over darkness & I would like to wish all Mauritians a happy & pious Deepavali.
The significance of Sanskrit word Deepavali is quite straight-forward – Deep meaning lamps & avali meaning row, hence Deepavali – row of lamps.

Windows Azure

Microsoft’s cloud OS has finally been unveiled – & that’s Windows Azure! But before you get confused between the real Windows & Azure, let me point out that Azure is not a “normal” OS – you won’t get a virtual desktop hosted somewhere, with virtual apps running on it. Azure is just a cloud services platform like Amazon’s Cloud Computing Services.

Top Gear Mauritius

I’ve got an announcement to make: I’m making my own version of Top Gear, which will be licensed to MBC & sponsored by… Orange!
The host will be ME, accompanied by Mr. Captain Slow & our tame racing driver, The Stig’s Mauritian cousin… Our first episode will be aired at the end of year & here are the episode details:
- Old car challenge (Morris Minor)
- Mauritius Supercar Showdown - Ferrari F430 v/s Nissan GT-R R35 at Plaisance “racetrack”
- Epic race – Boat vs Car vs Public Transportation

Some say that he’s a 17th century Dutch experiment gone wrong… and that his favourite meal is the KFD (Kentucky Fried Dodo). All we know is… he’s not The Stig, but The Stig’s Mauritian cousin!

Check out this article from today’s L'Express:

Baisse de 20 % du tarif d’ADSL à prévoir

115976_1Le forfait mensuel de 128 Kbps devrait passer à Rs 600 contre Rs 750.

Le ministre des Technologies de l’information et de la Communication (TIC), Asraf Dulull s’attaque à deux dossiers de taille : les tarifs de téléphonie et d’Internet. Il espère voir les tarifs d’ADSL plonger d’environ 20 % d’ici la fin de l’année. Ainsi le forfait mensuel de 128 Kbps devrait passer de Rs 750 à Rs 600 environ. C’est du moins le souhait du ministre. Le forfait de 528 Kbps pourrait ainsi passer de Rs 1 360 à plus ou moins Rs 1 000. Actuellement, plus de 10 000 personnes sont abonnés à l’ADSL. Le gouvernement compte bien pousser ce chiffre à la hausse. Pour ce faire, il a demandé à l’Information and Communication Technologies Authority (ICTA) d’entamer le dialogue avec les opérateurs concernés. Il s’agit de la priorité du moment. Une proposition de nouveaux tarifs est déjà attendue de la part des opérateurs. «On attend une demande des opérateurs auprès de l’ICTA qui prendra la décision après une étude. Les opérateurs ont indiqué qu’ils ont l’intention de faire une proposition rapidement», dit-on au ministère. Asraf Dulull compte aussi s’attaquer aux tarifs téléphoniques afin d’encourager la téléphonie par Internet.

Yep, the first episode of Top Gear UK's Australian spin-off was aired last Monday at 7:30 pm (1:30pm Mauritian time). The scene took 6h to rip it, but finally Top.Gear.Australia.S01E01.WS.PDTV.XViD-PiX was released. So, the BIG question is... how does it compare to [original] Top Gear.
