I read an article online on the Localization (L10n) of the Microsoft OS Vista into three prominent Nigerian languages – Yoruba, Hausa, and Igbo. This is awesome. I was wondering if any tertiary institutions in Nigeria helped in accomplishing the task. I look forward to some students taking up the idea (L10n of FOSS, such as Apache, CUPS, Firefox, GNOME, KDE, OpenOffice.org, Thunderbird, X Window System) into those languages as their projects. I am happy to help out.

One of the easy ways to earn a Ph.D is to continue with one’s previous work, and that is what I am doing. I had my Ph.D seminar yesterday. It was not a bad one!! At the end of the day, I was asked few questions. One of them was “Is the work more of Web or telecommunications?” The answer was it was more of Web. The work explores a new way of improving the online experience by introducing a controllable web session mobility service. Taking a look at the service abstractions in my methodology, it could also be called a policy-based access control to web session mobility service in order to avoid system misuse. For more information, read through the slides.
