I got an opportunity to visit (nearby) paris for a weekend... and was too jazzed by some street skaters:

NSE Goes electronic from Monday

From Monday trading on the floor will take place electronically.. This is good news and is long over due.. I hope this means that I can do purchases and sales, all on the same day.. Now I wish I'd be able to keep tabs on the prices over the course of the day (of course electronically)....

Kenyan IDs/Passports out in 2 weeks!

I actually thought that this was a dream.. (Even though i've seen passports being issued in a day :) ). Hopefully soon, IDs/Passports should be available to applicants within 2 weeks of application (10 working days).
All legal documents--identity cards, passports, births and deaths certificates--will now be accessed within a maximum of 14 days following a move by the Office of the President ( OP) to do away with all cumbersome procedures shrouded in bureaucratic networks of corruption. Residents of Mombasa, Kisumu, Eldoret and Nairobi applying for passports will be issued with one within a period of 14 days.
Apparantly the Central Records Systen at Sheria House is to get (new?) upgraded equipment to replace the obsolete ones purchased in the 1960s. Obsolete doesn't quite cover it.. More of Pre-Historic (Pre Flintstone :) ). Hope the equipment is new - an upgrade from 1960 could be scary :) - might just be a 386 computer...
This move should see corruption minimized at Sheria House and Immigration...
Good news I'd say
