iGTD (I Get Things Done) and iCal for Mac

I was looking for something more power than iCal to manage multiple calendars, with multiple tasks by Calendar and I found iGTD. Initially, iCal seemed just fine (especially if you manage a few calendars with a few ToDos).

However, I felt that I was being very limited by it’s interface when entering a lot of tasks. Also, there’s no way to handle tasks than become mini-projects or big-projects. After a while, the ToDos on iCal gets very busy and cluttered when it tries to auto-sort into “today”, “tomorrow” and dates.

Meeting on Regulation on Copyright 2007

I was invited to participate in a focus group, to give input and feedback on the proposed Regulation on Copyright 2007, by the National Bureau of Classification, under the Ministry of Information. On the whole, there was general consensus that the draft was satisfactory except for a few considerations.

Sound Reinforcement for DUST

It was a DJ event portraying the talents of quite a few DJs from Maldives. Unlike most other DJ events that I have witnessed here in the Maldives, I was able to sense of genre and individualism in each of the DJs, which was really cool. The DJs included Ammu, Manal, Manko, Muku and Cubu.

Overall, the turn out was good.
