Mobile Number Portability in Pakistan

Posted by 25 March, 2007 (10) Comment

MNP (Mobile Number Portability) has arrived in Pakistan? I don’t see where it is. I read in a news paper it will start after 25th March and now on Internet I find out it has already started on 23rd March? If it has then why do I not see any thing related to MNP on Mobile Network’s Websites? I have only sighted MNP related FAQ procedure and request form on Instaphone’s website! I guess all Networks will have the same FAQs so take a look at it…

Mobile Number Portability – Instaphone

I have been waiting desperately for this to arrive since I am using Ufone right now and frankly speaking it’s a messy service. I can count more than 20 sometimes while trying to REDIAL a number or sending an SMS since their systems capacity does not seem to hold the number of users they have. MNP will surely make all of the Companies such as Ufone, Mobilink, Telenor, Warid and Instaphone to upgrade their system capacity plus offer good rates too. (Which reminds me there’s a User Awareness Alert, which is a pop up AD actually, issued on PTA’s Website, better check that out!)

A few of FAQs which I have been interested in knowing ever since I heard about MNP arriving to Pakistan are as under;

Q.12 Porting Fee = Standard pricing for new connection
Q.13 How long will it take = 4 working days – excluding hold time – HMM, HOLD TIME???
Q.24 How often can I port = Gotta wait for 60 days!
Q.30 As said in this Q, better reach a ZERO on your Prepaid before porting. (In my case use the SMS offer ASAP).

I think I will not be able to avail this feature YET since I gotta change the address of my Ufone connection and it says it won’t happen if a change of address/name request has been filed or happened in last 60 days.

Good luck to all those who try this. Please post your comments. Thanks! :)

Damn you! – He’s our Chief Justice……

Posted by 16 March, 2007 (7) Comment

It’s just sad… You for heaven’s sake don’t treat your Chief Justice like this. Thanks to Teeth Maestro for posting it. Quoting from his blog. Keep the good work up bro.

Ever since the attack on the Judiciary in Pakistan, last Friday (post) practically the entire country is abuzz with a number of confusing questions of which probably the least addressed is when does Pervaiz Musharraf enforce a proper Martial Law. In my opinion Pakistan is already under a full fledged Martial Law since 1999 but disguised as a torjan horse titled Enlightened Moderation.

A number critics say that it just can’t happen, while many believe that martial law is inevitable. I belong the latter group, in my opinion Musharraf had been buttering the people of Pakistan for the past year in preparations to make them swallow the presidency pill for another five years. The stage was prepared when he successfully masterminded a thumbs up from Uncle Sam, it was during his US-Book Tour visit that Pakistan went through an interesting roller coaster ride, I had protested back then that the simple revelation of Pakistan being bombed back into the stone ages should have been enough for any decent Pakistani leader to walk off, but not Musharraf as he was their for a more personal reason far more important then Pakistan. Millions back home reacted simply How Dare They?. It was actually Musharraf who expertly handled the ABC interview threw out this ball-busting comment to force George Bush onto the back foot and then was able to pull out the trump card right from the grasp of Uncle Sam getting himself a sexy peck on the cheek and a pat on the behind for a job well done. Musharraf finished the cake with a hilarious gig with Jon Stewart where he displayed stand-up comedy type of showmanship but the icing was when he got Bush to publicly plug his autobiography on live TV, asking people to ‘Buy the Book’, literally a dream come true for any aspiring writer.

Breaking News: Police storms Media offices in Islamabad

Posted by 16 March, 2007 (0) Comment

My blood is boiling right now. Police has stormed media offices of GEO News and their newspapers in Islamabad. They have already tortured and arrested their one journalist and are damaging their offices and using tear gas within their building. Information Minister was talking LIVE on GEO and saying this action was not necessary and I condemn it and that he will investigate who ordered this and the said person will be dealt with. I don’t think you will be able to do any thing Mr. Information Minister.

State owned television channel is busy producing media footage which are showing peaceful protests only and not where the Police has tried to disperse them. They claim every thing is peaceful and Police has allowed everyone to do any thing.

They surely were peaceful in early hours but not after Police tried to arrest Opposition leaders and party activists. This is BULL SHIT. Everyone can watch the real picture on Private news channels like ARY One World and Geo News. Salute to the private media who are telling the world what’s really happening in Pakistan right now.

Fans etc. won’t stop after Shutdown

Posted by 15 March, 2007 (1) Comment
Update 16-3-07: Brother reported that MODEM is not working. I ofcourse did not check the Modem after this problem. I knew right away it was modem, I removed it, start the system and shut down, it happened! The problem was gone then I inserted Modem again, the problem was no longer there. Weird problem.

I had contacted Asus too, I got reply after a day telling me I should back up the data and format/install Windows XP again. LoL. It’s solved anyways.

OK…As if I did not have enough problems already. So last night, after modding the case and setting the CPU with Thermal Take Big Typhoon on it, I turn on, everything runs fine but when I shut down, I hear the hard disk cutting off but everything else is running. The Motherboard, all fans and the UV lights on the casing too. Weird…

I tried to search Google, till now I have found out only that in such cases replacing the PSU helped or replacing the Mobo helped but I don’t get it…Why did it happen? I will change PSU soon anyways, not able to find the one I want here so…

Let me know please if any one of you has a solution to this.

The Hypocrites

April 14, 2005
ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz has asked Law Minister Wasi Zafar to keep his cool after noting his aggression and misbehaviour. Sources said on Wednesday that Shaukat Aziz had invited Wasi Zafar to a lunch hosted in honour of visiting Azeri President Ilham Aliyev when all of a sudden the law minister was seen being escorted by two security guards through one of the doors of Prime Minister’s House. Both security guards caught hold of the law minister by his arms, sources said, adding that the PM’s deputy military secretary rushed to the scene and escorted the law minister out through another door. The prime minister and Azeri president also heard the scuffle while presiding over the signing ceremony of accords between both countries. Later during lunch, the prime minister asked Wasi Zafar to keep his cool.

Hmm, so prime minister does not take any action against Wasi Zafar for not keeping cool. Just asked him to keep his cool, no complaints no nothing.

March 2007
ISLAMABAD: Federal Law Minister Wasi Zafar repeatedly hurled naked abuse in a live Voice of America (VoA) radio discussion on chief justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry’s deposition, which was heard worldwide on Monday night.

As Wasi Zafar heard Ansar joining the programme, he lost his cool and started hurling abuse. He was angered because of a story headlined “Law minister facing long arm of the law” that Ansar had filed and was published in The News on August 13, 2005. It said the prime minister and Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain would decide the fate of the law minister for his son’s thrashing of a PIA passenger in his presence at the Karachi airport.

The other day, the Jaranwala Bar Association cancelled Wasi Zafar’s basic membership and recommended to the Pakistan Bar Council that his licence should be revoked. Wasi Zafar earned notoriety when he threatened a chairman of the Capital Development Authority, who had refused to give a concession to him regarding an industrial plot. He and his sons had also thrashed a person at the Karachi airport in 2005, who objected to the minister’s sons jumping the queue. Later, he slapped a waiter of a five-star hotel in Islamabad over a trivial matter.

president of Pakistan as you know has sacked Chief Justice of Pakistan and president plus his supported government is trying hard to mock the Chief Justice of Pakistan. Chief Justice is blamed of misconduct and abusing his powers including appointing his son using his power instead of merit. All right…

A quick action was taken against the Chief Justice of Pakistan who according to some sources has misconducted plus he has abused his power. There were constitutional ways of doing it too which would be hard for the high ups to go on and that would consume lot of time too, getting rid of him, right? But what about one of the ministers which the current Government chose and appointed? I am sure they could sack a minister with blink of an eye for misconduct when they dare to break constitution of Pakistan as if it’s their personal notepad.

Government’s own appointed law minister has been misconducting (his son too) and abusing his power, ever since he was appointed. Why was NO action taken against him? Government comes to know about misconducts of the Chief Justice, he is sacked right away but nothing is done about a minister who lives right under Government. Chief Justice’s profile was removed from official website then later posted back and said it was a technical fault but the minister’s profile can still be seen on official website.

So does this proof that the Chief Justice of Pakistan is not guilty of anything because obviously he would have been loved if he listened to the high ups in Government including president and prime minister that would mean Judiciary is just another tool of a trade for them but that was not the case, the Chief Justice did not allow that to happen. Seems like Government is happy to have a 24x7x365 mis conductive personality who listens and obeys every single order and government will neglect his power abuses and misconducts cause he’s “LAADLA” but they can’t tolerate a solid non-changeable personality with haya and eemaan left who doesn’t sell at any cost, since obviously that someone is not going to listen to each and everything that is ordered . . .

The “Freedom of Speech and Media” which Government sometimes is proud about giving to Pakistan in their time is going bad against them right now since every single Private news channel and news papers are airing & printing lots of facts and every single person knows what is happening. The said law minister can be sacked in sometime perhaps, Government will have something to clap on then in such a time or he might stay and proof costly…

May Allah guide those with hearts not sealed yet, the rest can go to hell, there’s plenty of space their…

Note:- president, prime minister etc. are not grammatical mistakes. If you know what I mean…
