Ross Ulrich, An illusion of Freedom.

Ross Ulbricht, envisioned an economic freedom for us all, called Silk Road. It was a free market experiment that was supposed to keep its users 100% anonymous. It was the first of its kind. Payments were powered by Bitcoin, a completely 100% anonymous means of moving money.  As long as no one got hurt, buying or selling drugs, why should the government get involved. Lets be honest. The war on drugs have failed, rather it Read more…

Hacking around is not always the best solution

Background I had a massive project not too long ago that involved creating a custom backend to handle 1000s of orders daily. Each other had an average of 1.2 items. I needed to create a single job sheet in the pdf format for each item within an order, so my systems had to generate around 3000 job sheets daily since the dashboard was used in 3 different sites across 3 different countries. Jobsheet Engine  The Read more…

Bitcoin not for investing

The first successful cryptocurrency Bitcoin is often advertised as a means to get rich fast, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Although early on many people become rich from buying Bitcoin, this isn’t the goal of it. Bitcoin has values beyond its investment potential, such as being decentralized trustless digital money, taking power back from the governments that often abuse their powers in which their citizens are often defencelessness. Bitcoin is about freedom, Read more…

I created software to manage 3 factories

I work at a clothes factory, they make everything, T-Shirts; Leggings; Scarfs; Pencil-Skirts to a whole range of other products. There are 3 factories spread across the world to handle the fulfillment of our suppliers orders. The supplier has its websites for selling these items, once a sale is made a simple HTTP post request is sent to our systems to handle the fulfilment. The dashboard controls all the orders.

While it’s true that the majority of Android apps are written in Java, when it comes to Android development, Java isn’t your only option.

Most adult males are not independent

No adult working full time as a typical 9-5 employee can call themselves independent, rather they are dependent on their bosses to give them a full time income, without which would lead to a collapse of their whole economic worth. Being independent is what some men proudly list as an achievement, but most of these people wouldn’t last 1 month without an income. 1 month of income is the typical safety net of over 90% Read more…

University is a bad investment.

Although its quite trendy to call out universities as evil, green mongering for profit absolute cunts, these people have a point. I like to consider universities as a mass-produced sheep farm. Their job is to turn 1000s of people into specialised skilful personals. I don’t know about you but I know, I love feeling special, and theirs nothing special about allowing yourself to be mass-produced and degraded in this way. Not forgetting the fact that Read more…

The only airline that offers direct flight was Pakistani International Airlines. They are ranked top 5th most dangerous airline, I checked the reviews of the airline before applying as well. They have some of the worst reviews, things from rude staff to the entertainment not working, even Read more…
