Gdo, Gazetteer Database Online

with 2 comments

Gazetteer Database OnlineThere are 3/4 variants of the Cambodia Gazetteer after UNTAC created the list; now it time to put this mess to rest one and for all.

Ministry of Interior, Department of Local Administration currently setup a task force to reconsolidates the master list and make it an only office Gazetteer.

Now my colleague expected to write up a forward document about this project; which I’m not going to discuss here.

What you should know in the near future there is only one set of Cambodia Gazetteer and you can access it online absolutely free, so stay tune …

And you don’t have to guess how I built or when it goes live since I had 3 projects developed & maintenance in parallel no doubt I no longer had time to enjoy playing JXII :(

Feature Highlight:

– Online browsing Province, District, Commune, Village meta data

– Province, District, Commune Map (produced by external consultant)

– Download Gazetteer data in Excel format for offline use.

I love this job ;)

Hug a developer

leave a comment »

Ayende had posted about “Hug a developer today” which show how deep pain a developer had earned over the past years.

I wished I’d be able to embed the movie inside wordpress however it doesn’t seem to work; anyway the video began with “Developers everywhere are in terrible pain” more detail go visit here.

I always doubt about the idea of new7wonder online voting system. It was such a misery that the Cambodian goverment had blinkly support this project. These old leaders had no idea what this guy ‘Bernard Weber’ is upto. They proud about WOW vote on the Internet ha? cool … cool what? that stupid.

How many time have you seen and heard about goverment stupid decision about ICT?
Are they man enough to take responsibilities?
