UWI is F^%$ Retarded

February 27, 2009 at 8:42 pm (Rants, Stress, Stupidity, Technology, Trinidad) ()

Seriously, the University of the West Indies is full of shit.

Bored today I thought I’d throw in an application for a Master’s degree at UWI. The deadline is tomorrow. I don’t know what will happen between now and September, the start of the new academic year, I may change my mind, but I think its better to apply now to at least qualify, as changing your mind does not require an application.

I knew beforehand that the application as claimed by UWI is online-based, so no worries. They state this here :

APPLICATION PROCESS
Please note that The University of the West Indies has moved to ON-LINE APPLICATIONS and you will therefore be required to visit our website at http://www.sta.uwi.edu/postgrad where information on all programmes to be offered for the upcoming academic year and instructions on “How to Apply” are available.

Let me pause for a minute and share the Wikipedia definition of “online”.

Online – Describes a system which is connected (generally electrically) to a larger network; Available over the internet; Available on a computer system, even if not networked.

However upon completing the application form, I’m being told that I must send my referees a form which they must print out, complete, sign, put in a sealed envelope, which I must then collect, and bundle that along with other hard copy documents including a printout of the completed application form to be submitted by post or by hand to UWI

In other words UWI is fucking retarded. The application process is NOT ONLINE. Its like saying let me give you this book for free, but excuse me while I hold your wallet and take $5 out of it for no particular fucking reason. Needless to say I’m not making the deadline, and can only hope its accepted by next week. Assholes.

Crime, Trinidad & Tobago and Carnival

February 26, 2009 at 3:19 am (news, Trinidad) (, , , )

I opted out of the Carnival celebrations this year. I’m fedup of Carnival.

With what’s going on in the world right now the whole idea of Carnival is just stupid. $500US for a fuckin bikini to jump around Port-of-Spain all fucking day and make a spectacle of yourself primarily for those back at the office and to keep up with the Jones’.

Ofcourse there are nice girls around in those bikinis, but does that matter if you’re not single?

You can actually really have fun just jumping around, but given the current crime rate, will you risk your life to do so?

I won’t, so I went to Tobago.

What a surreal start to that.

I only started planning like early February so ofcourse everywhere except maybe a garbage bin in a public toilet was completely, receptionist-laughing-on-the-phone-at-you, booked to capacity with waiting list systems that I would be at the bottom of. I got lucky one day as I found an ad for Summerland Suites in the local newspapers. Called, spoke to a nice German-sounding lady named Claudia, succeeded in booking, saw its a nice place from its website, took the plane, and landed in Tobago on Friday 20th February ready to chillax. Called Claudia, no answer. Called the other 3 numbers for Summerland, no answer. No worries, I figured that it was early and they probably weren’t up or something. So I took a taxi to the hotel right away.

When I arrived the grim news mercilessly struck me. Ms. Claudia Feldmeier, who I arranged reservations with, was murdered the night before I arrived in Tobago. Sad, stunned and shocked, I managed to get a room at another nearby hotel, which actually turned out to be better than Summerland Suites in my opinion.

I’m so sorry that this had to happen to Ms. Feldmeier. I hope she is at rest and her family is doing well. The first thing that came to mind is if only I could have told her something on the phone so that such a terrible thing may have been prevented.

The aftermath however is classic. Tobago police held a South African man who has been assisting them in their investigations. 2 days ago his lawyers came in from overseas, and the latest is yesterday he has been released. The murder weapon was recovered, but that’s about it. The police are now looking for a man believed to be have been seen fleeing the scene of the crime.

Here is his description according to Tobago police (public should be aware) :

5’11

Slim build male

Wow he doesn’t stand a chance now. Some solid police intelligence there. Matter of fact according to that description I’m a suspect.

This crime thing is getting scary now, and the police are getting stupider and more incompetent by the second. The story of this murder is already making waves, Tobago is now even being declared “no longer safe” for foreigners anymore.

I can only hope they catch this piece of shit soon and see that he receives swift justice. If they don’t, I expected that, they’re archaic, shitheads anyway, if they do, cool, but they’re still archaic, shitheads.

On the bright side, Tobago was beautiful. If only there were more jobs there I’d love to move over.

PM Manning REALLY has Kidney Cancer

December 12, 2008 at 6:51 am (news, Politics, Trinidad) (, , , )

Isn’t it funny that I have to retract commentary on something I thought should be retracted? Turns out I mixed up the word benign with malignant, therefore Manning really does have Kidney Cancer. I realized this when I woke up this morning, but was too lazy to come back to change it.

So the following front page cover is in fact true :

Is the editor a fan of oxymoron? Or is just a plain moron?

In that case, wow, its still sad. All I really want is to see him lose the next election by the biggest landslide in modern history, not suffer from cancer, but that’s life I guess.

Trinidad Tops the WORLD in Porn Searches

December 2, 2008 at 8:54 pm (Funny, Holy Shit, Trinidad) (, , )

NO, NOT THE REGION, NOT THE HEMISPHERE, NOT THE “ENGLISH-SPEAKING CARIBBEAN” THE FRICKIN WORLD.

I SHIT YOU NOT

I SHIT YOU NOT

In terms of the volume of searches through Google for porn in relation to population, TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO HAS THE HIGHEST IN THE WORLD. Way ahead of the top producer of porn, the U.S, Trinidad leads Bangladesh, the UK, South Africa, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand….all countries who have atleast FOUR TIMES the population of Trinidad. I can’t get over this, can you believe this?

See this stunning discovery here on Google

ARE WE REALLY THAT FRIGGING PERVERTED?

The little 1.5 million of us are more interested in porn per capita than countries with 100 times our population. Hell, we’re more interested in porn than the land of the porn stars : the US.

SO NOW we know what those seemingly busy but inefficient public servants with internet access do all day. WOW.

If you’re a parent and you’re concerned about this, I strongly suggest you visit this site and download the software there………..for the sake of the country!! lol

Trinifever pt.3

November 23, 2008 at 3:35 am (Funny, Trinidad) (, , , )

This is quickly becoming quite a laughing stock now. Here is the latest news on the exploits of the megalomaniac and those at the niche-porn site, Trinifever.

The TriniFever Team has tried to negotiate with Agent22/Admin to have the monies he swindled from you (our members) returned/refunded. However, he has refused to do so and has instead decided to issue death threats to the members of the Administration/Executive and has also contacted several members on this site to engage in various acts of sabotage and subterfuge. We are fully aware of all his tactics and through unorthodox means, he has tried to infiltrate trinifever with spies in order to spread certain acts of propaganda. He has convinced and misled many members into believing that he was the “Owner” of trinifever. He has also been writing various libelous statements and posting them on several websites, in addition to using slanderous statements against the real owner of trinifever.\

roflmao lol not the real owner, infiltrate with spies, issue death threats, lmao.

In an effort to steer clear of “mud slinging” and engaging in any act which would prolong this unpleasant situation, the owner of the site directed his Administrative Team to desist from engaging Agent22/Admin in any “war of words”. However, after several unrelenting verbal attacks and recent death threats, the TriniFever Team has decided that the “gloves needed to come off” and in so doing, make a full statement regarding this entire unpleasant affair which has plagued the website over the past seven (7) days. Every story has two (2) sides and after hearing his side for the entire week, we have decided to tell you (our beloved members) our side, which incidentally is the truth.

In the early part of 2008, the real owner of TriniFever, who is PussyHunter, went on a sabbatical leaving Agent22/Admin as the sole Administrator with Marie, Mrs. Red Dollar, zchart2001, peepingtom24hrs and Original Gangsta as Moderators to assist him in running the site. Soon after Hunter’s departure, absolute power got to Agent22/Admin who then started demanding that members hand over porn and decided to start utilizing the site to build his own personal porn collection. It is during this period of turmoil that he started cutting backdoor and side deals for access to various parts of the site. To date several of you have come forward and stated that you all handed over your material to him and never received the promised access. It was also discovered that in order to maintain the secrecy of his deals, he would ban members who questioned him about keeping his word.

wow lol deep shit. sounds..communist or something

Around this time the site membership had risen to over 4000, with 95% of the members not contributing anything to to the site. The Moderators approached Agent22/Admin to delete those accounts as they were only leeching off the site and not contributing anything. These Leeches also caused the more prolific members to cease posting as they were only receiving and not giving. He refused to delete the accounts and decided instead to introduce a “Verification Service Charge” so that persons would pay for access to various boards on the site. His idea was primarily 4000 non contributing members multiplied by $100.00/$150.00 and decided to start his Verification Service Charge against the advice of all the Moderators. He then lied to the entire site membership telling them that the money was being collected to “Verify” persons ages and to pay for the web-server access. Anyone under eighteen (18) can walk into a bank and make a payment to an account and ask for a receipt. Also, all financial costs for the site have been borne by Hunter, who has never received a cent from Agent22/Admin. He then setup V-COM SERVICES and an account at RBTT to collect his fee and was doing so successfully until he was stopped.

lol crook. I ofcourse have no sympathy for anyone who got conned by this, i.e. paying to see stolen “porn”

During this turbulent time, several key acts occurred of which you were not notified. He went into a “Gestapo” type mode and went off into a tangent stating that it was “his site” and he was the boss.

lol wow!! loll

Around this period, he banned Original Gangsta for failing to give him personal photos and other acts of selfish behaviour caused other Moderators (Mrs. Red Dollar and Marie) to resign their Posts. It was at this point the owner of the site returned and realized what was occurring with the Financial Impropriety, Gestapo type behaviour and the stealing of large portions of material from the membership. The Owner immediately removed his Administrative powers and made him a Global Moderator pending an investigation; however, after a few days and on being told that the site would be restructured, he resigned his post and demanded that his account be deleted.

We have now completed our investigation and have concluded that he asked that his account be deleted so that vital evidence would have been lost. He also felt that he was “above” everyone else on the site and the thought of word getting out that he was not the owner as he had stated, would have ruined his reputation. He was not banned and the photo at the bottom clearly shows his demand for his account to be deleted.

In keeping with the site’s original mandate, the owner directed that the payments for access be immediately ceased and over 4000 dormant accounts deleted. We are members of this site because we want to be a part of a sharing community. We encourage posting and would reward the members who post legitimate local material. We have also decided to take legal steps to recover the money which was swindled from the members who paid for access and have contacted the authorities relative to the embezzlement of funds, fraudulent conversion and the death threats received by the site’s Administration. None of which we are taking lightly and we will ensure that justice is served.

This is the most interesting thing yet. This is like Joker suing Two-Face for not splitting the money they stole from the bank 50/50 as they agreed. Anyway anything is possible in this comedy show of a country

In light of the foregoing, we have sent out correspondence to Agent22/Admin to have him discuss the return of the funds he embezzled, as well as other matters of mutual interest. He has thus far failed to heed our warning and we would be taking this matter to the next “legal” level. We make this statement with a heavy heart as it was never our intention to deal with this situation in this manner; however, his failure to adhere to our request, whilst continuing to make threats and libelous statements, have led us to make this release as a means of updating our membership and letting you all be aware of our stand.

Well atleast someone’s taking this seriously

WE TRUST THAT THIS MATTER WOULD FINALLY BE LAID TO REST AND WE CAN GET ON WITH BUSINESS AS USUAL. AFFECTED MEMBERS WOULD BE UPDATED BY THE SITE EXECUTIVE.

Reproduced hereunder is the document which was sent to Agent22/Admin:

To – XXXXXX XXXXXXX, also called Agent22, also called Admin on the website www.trinifever.net.

a.        I have been directed to inform you that the owner(s) of www.trinifever..net, hereinafter called trinifever, have launched an investigation into accusations of embezzlement and fraudulent conversion levied against you by members of the said trinifever. It has been established that during the period 29th October, 2007 to 22nd October, 2008 you were an Administrator of the said trinifever and during that time you misrepresented yourself to the members of the website, as the owner of the said website, which caused great concern to the owner(s) of the website.I am directed to ask you to produce any and all receipts to attest to your claim to ownership of the website www.trinifever.net.

b.        During the period of time when you held the position of website Administrator, you also placed several notices and approached certain members to pay the sum of $100.00 cash Trinidad and Tobago currency for access to certain areas of trinifever and that you falsely misrepresented this payment as being for trinifever and to pay for web-server space. I am directed to tell you that this is not true and that all the monies you collected was converted to your own use and not used to pay for web-server space for trinifever.

c.        You have also been accused of using the position given to you as website Administrator to extort money from members of the site through a payment for access initiative adopted by you without the permission of the owner(s). You have also been accused of diverting financial resources from trinifever, to a company called V-COM SERVICES which is registered in your name. V-COM SERVICES has never performed any technical or administrative work for or on behalf of trinifever and as such all claims made thereof are false and geared towards misleading members of trinifever.

d.        As a result of your actions, and continued attempts at defamation of trinifever. its owner(s), Administrator(s) and Moderator(s), as well as several libelous statements accredited to you, you are required to produce all receipts and financial records (including financial records of V-COM SERVICES) as it relates to work done on behalf of trinifever; all receipts and financial records as it relates to your claim for ownership of trinifever; all receipts and financial records as it relates to monies collected for access to trinifever; and a full list of membership accounts as it relates to payments received by you on behalf of trinifever members and the immediate repayment/refund of all the monies collected from members of trinifever.

e.        We regret to inform you that your failure to comply with all the requests listed above in paragraphs a,b,c and d, would result in the website owner(s) referring this matter to the Fraud Squad Department of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service, who have already been consulted. In this light, we urge you to be mindful of the Laws of Trinidad and Tobago as it relates to Embezzlement and Fraudulent Conversion and have attached a copy of the Larceny Act Chapter 11:12 and urge you to pay special attention to Sections 18, 20 and 34.

Despite several warnings by the website owner(s), Administrator(s) and Moderator(s), you have continued to use defamatory statements against trinifever members and post libelous statements against its owner(s), Administrator(s) and Moderator(s). Moreover, it appears that your false, baseless accusations and threats of bodily harm, are being used to hide your numerous indiscretions and dishonesty. Given the serious nature of this matter I urge you to act in an expeditious manner in bringing this unpleasant matter to an amicable solution.

The TriniFever Executive:

CHAPTER 11:12
LARCENY ACT

Trinidad’s Prime Minister Illegally Spies on Citizens, Opposition

November 22, 2008 at 5:06 am (news, Politics, Technology, Trinidad, Weird) (, , , , , , , )

TV6 has begun a multi-part series on the topic of spying in Trinidad. Here is what they’ve reported so far :

1) Prime Minister Patrick Manning used state agencies and state funds of over $60 million to funnel and smuggle Israeli spying equipment consisting of Carnivore-type software that harvests text messages, emails, phone calls, etc. of ALL citizens of the country.

2) He has been using this to persecute the opposition through an undisclosed, illegal “State security agency” as he is strategically releasing information on what he has “learnt” through his illegal spying on opposition senators when his party is criticized strongly by them.

3) The government has therefore no absolutely excuse for failing to control the increasing crime rate which includes an all-time high in murders for the year as with such spying equipment on hand, they should easily be aware and therefore able to counter the activities of criminals, druglords, etc. Its like losing at scrabble with a blind opponent when you have a dictionary and computer in front of you.

Appalling. $60 million dollars. Even if it were $1, the government of a democratic country has secretly and illegally bought something with tax payers money to spy on tax papers and suppress democracy.

I don’t really have any further comment on this. I am totally speechless, shocked, angry again and further disenchanted with the direction the country is going. The saddest part is idiots everywhere will most likely just say “hmph” or worse yet agree with this, or there may be some controversy over this for a week or so, then it will all die down, and life goes on, no MASS RESIGNATION of government officials as normal, civilized people of a normal, civil society would expect, absolutely nothing.

But, that’s that, i’m not about to get riled up now. Maybe in the future I’ll be able to come back and give more of my opinion on this, right now I need to sleep.

Trinidad Flooded

November 19, 2008 at 7:04 am (Life, news, Stupidity, Trinidad) ()

I don’t even want to go into details of what happened earlier today, because it just depresses and angers me, but in summary there was normal rainfall for a few hours in Trinidad, then all of the sudden shit just started happening

That’s right a bridge collapsed and a woman got killed by a landslide.

What happened today wasn’t a tropical wave, tropical depression, tropical storm or, God forbid a hurricane….it was just rain, for a few hours, intermittently…and the result is a natural, national disaster.

Obviously a collection of government institutions have failed us all once again as this happens all the time. The response from the public is always “Hmph”. But what took my sanity away today was hearing people repeat this retarded mantra that “we”, the citizens, are responsible for the flooding because we “throw litter in the drains”.

At that then moment I think I made up my mind that I will migrating. “WE” are responsible for this? Not the Ministries and regional corporations and garbage collectors and Ministers and MPs…..”WE” caused the flood. I’m not even going to go into how monumentally stupid that thought is, it would give me a headache. I guess some people really do deserve the government they have.

Trinidad Airport Security Use Segways

November 12, 2008 at 5:07 am (Funny, Trinidad, Weird) (, , , , , , , )

I apologize for no video, but I saw this for real on Sunday, and its unbelievable. The security officers at the Piarco International Airport…..use Segways….segways!!!!…….SEG-“LAZY-ASS”-WAYS!!!

What is the outrage you ask? Well for reference, at the Miami International Airport (Click to get idea of physical size), the security DON’T use segways.

Yet at Piarco…they do?

The problem is Piarco is like 1/100th the size of M.I.A!!! And probably half the size of most international airports where segways aren’t used!!! Are we being trailblazers of laziness now?? A segway for 2000m, if so much, of walking space??…..I’m speechless. What’s next?? SUV’s for San Marino with their huge population of 28,000 people???????????

Prime Minister Storms Into Radio Station to Complain About Comments on Program

November 9, 2008 at 6:52 am (Funny, Politics, Trinidad) (, , , , , , , )

Sometime last week, the Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago, Mr. Patrick Manning, happened to be listening to 94.1FM, a local radio station while he was somewhere in San Fernando. A talk show was on and one of the hosts raised the issue about the government imposed increase in the price of premium gasoline.

It quickly became a public discussion on how displeased most people are with the price hike. Upon hearing this, Mr. Manning went up into Port-of-Spain with an entourage of police officers, blocked the road where the radio station was located, and physically went up into the radio station to intimidate or “complain” about the content of the talk show. Again, I scanned the article for solid proof of this madness :

Manning the dictator

Patrick Manning storms into radio station

I’m speechless. Has this man completely lost his mind? He’s saying that as the PM he can go any public place he wants as any other citizen can…nice dodge. You didn’t go there to pat them on the back, you went with the intention of using your authority as a tool to intimidate them from exercising their RIGHT to free speech. Patrick Manning is totally unfit to be head of this party, the country, and even his constituency. Why? Well three words : Narcissistic Personality Disorder

Narcissistic personality disorder is a condition characterized by an inflated sense of self-importance, need for admiration, extreme self-involvement, and lack of empathy for others. Individuals with this disorder are usually arrogantly self-assured and confident. They expect to be noticed as superior. Many highly successful individuals might be considered narcissistic. However, this disorder is only diagnosed when these behaviors become persistent and very disabling or distressing.

Vulnerability in self-esteem makes individuals with this disorder very sensitive to criticism or defeat. Although they may not show it outwardly, criticism may haunt these individuals these individuals and may leave them feeling humiliated, degraded, hollow, and empty. They may react with disdain, rage, or defiant counterattack. Their social life is often impaired due to problems derived from entitlement, the need for admiration, and the relative disregard for the sensitivities of others.

My diagnosis is all evidenced by this latest antic of his. Anyone who knows Patrick Manning would know the above paragraph is pretty much his biography.

Are the rights of citizens in Trinidad under siege now because of this? Will Patrick Manning comment on this blog or storm into my house and wave his finger at me because I criticize him? We’ll just have to wait and see.

Trinifever pt. 2

October 30, 2008 at 3:41 pm (Funny, Trinidad) (, , , )

Wow. It seems as if someone at Trinifever took my blog to heart, kicked out the fucktard “agent22″/Admin who stupidly was trying to defend his actions here, and eliminated the illegal pay system that he so proudly implemented. The following are posts from moderators from the site (in italics) :

“Firstly, Agent was not kicked out.

His admin status was taken away because of his questionable habits. One of them was that $100 verification charge HE implemented, on the guise it was for Trini Fever. It was a load of bullshit.

Agent used to claim HE was the absolute boss here. Reality check. He wasn’t.”

pwned

“The true boss asked that an Administrative TEAM be set up, so no one individual can have exclusive control and ABUSE any process, either for selfish gain or any other reason. Agent refused to share power, one reason being he had to share it with those he deemed AGAINST him. It is not our fault if his practices behind the boards were considered unfair or downright inappropriate.

Agent began to argue that he made us as Moderators and that we didn’t make him as Admininistrator. But what he needs to realise is that he made us Moderators of TRINI FEVER to act in the board’s best interests, and not as his personal stooges.”

I don’t believe that really, they seemed pretty content with being stooges at the time.

“Think about it. Imagine being hired by a supervisor in a company, who then goes on to embezzle funds. Where would your loyalties remain, with that corrupt officer or the organisation?

As Moderators, it was OUR DUTY to report our dissatisfaction. It was not a coup d’etat. When he was asked to co-operate as a team member with Admin powers, he REFUSED. He chose to leave and asked for his account to be deleted. If he was using that as a BLUFF TACTIC, it did not work.

I hope this explains the jist of what happened.”

If you’re reading : LOL TO YOU. You’re such an idiot you even got mutinied now. You must feel as stupid as your plan to make money off shit you don’t own was, and feel like shit as you’re now power hungry with no power.

If any of you want your money back, please take it up with the individual it was paid to on your slip.

Trying to make Trini Fever a paysite was ILL-ADVISED and WRONG.”

Pay the people back their money asshole.
