We've been living without a mobile phone for 12 years. Before embarking on our nomadic journey in 2004, our friends bought us a brand new smart phone for keeping in touch. We carried the precious gift all over the world and kept purchasing new SIM cards in each and every country we visited.
Installing Windows 7 was not a piece of cake as Microsoft is pushing desperately Windows 10. Detailed installation instructions with driver download links follow this walkthrough. The first obstacle was getting usb to work. Windows 7 does not support USB 3, and Vostro has only USB 3 ports meaning that none of the usb ports are functional before the drivers are installed. We used Ubuntu live image and two pen drives to transfer the drivers. After usb started working, installing all the rest of the drivers was a trivial task, almost. Driver packages and updates provided by Dell kept crashing and messing up the system. Installations were interrupted with undocumented error messages, and finally the system got so messed up that we had to re-install Windows 7. On the next round, we stripped the drivers out from Dell update packages. This way, and by gathering drivers from original component manufacturers, we managed to get everything installed. The only issue left was the system that cras…

This article helps you to protect your Windows 7 against security threats, privacy violations, and malware. These instructions are crucial for digital nomads who are often travelling and working offline in remote areas using internet cafes with slow and unreliable internet connections. In such conditions, having your laptop suddenly download unwanted updates or get messed up is a nightmare. The same principles apply to all operating systems, not just Windows 7, as long as you have control over your system. Even if you are not a digital nomad, you might want to enjoy increased productivity, stability and security by controlling your own computer.

A decade ago, the USA invaded Iraq using exactly the same pretext as with Syria now: weapons of mass destruction (WMDs), which proved to be weapons of mass distraction. International media was provoked to stir anger among nations by spreading speculations. Does a hoax become the truth if sufficiently many people believe in it? It shouldn´t. If you were somehow involved in the election of Obama, please try to influence him not to start massacring the Syrian people. Don´t have their blood on your hands. Peace cannot be made by killing people.
We got fed up with breaking keyboards and bought Dell Vostro 14 5459 laptop. After reading customer feedback, we decided not to mail order or rely on Dell support and customer service, but to buy the laptop from a reseller and test it before taking it with us. All was well at the shop, BIOS hardware tests were passed, Dell website confirmed the 2-year parts only warranty (POW), and factory installed Ubuntu GNU/Linux showed the correct processor, memory, and hard disk.
We had a glimpse into the corporate world in Oman. Many things stunned us and not the least the so-called "Omanization". It is an indigenous policy that aims at increasing the number of Omani staff. In Europe, the same policy is called 'discrimination'. While Europeans also prefer to deal with other Europeans, hiring is done more discreetly. The applicant is, for example, required to speak fluently the official language of the country, which is a considerable barrier considering the number of languages spoken in Europe. Or, if the applicant's skin colour, ethnicity or gender doesn't match expectations, the employer may blame fierce competition for rejection.
