Unico Grande Sathorn Hotel in Bangkok is now called FuramaXclusive. Yuck. Nevertheless, I’m booked in. I like this hotel.

Noting that rates at a hotel I know in BKK vary wildly depending on the site I look at. Caveat Emptor!

I leave for Nairobi then Bangkok Sunday evening. Currently trying to book a hotel in BKK for Monday night.

@zzap Right now at a hotel, one ActionAid considers safe for visitors. Good security. Was in other places while on safari up country.

This is my last night in Tanzania. Lena and I discussed how the project went over dinner. With calypso Abba.

@jeffsonstein Indeed, the Tanzanian Shilling (TZS) is not one of the world’s strongest currencies.

I’m sure this man would prefer not to be repairing my internets at 9.20pm on Saturday night, but it’s his job.

This calypso band is tacking an Abba medley in an acceptably workmanlike manner.

The cab here cost TZS 30,000, but Albert found a chap he knows and the return journey is only 15,000.

We have posted the ActionAid Tanzania blogs! I’ll provide linkage later. Food first.

via Cloudhopper

Still no electricity. Laptop batteries and mobile broadband FT(interim)W!

via Cloudhopper

Waiting for the electricity to return so we can wrap up the day’s work.

Realising how many steps there are to creating an online profile when you have to spell them out to someone new.

Discussing the issue of individuals’ blog posts being seen as “official” organisation policy. More complex in hierarchical society!

I know I have a bunch of new followers, so do free free to say hi, ‘cos I don’t use notification emails.

In the Dar es Salaam office of ActionAid. I’m thinking FeedDemon will win the RSS reader choice for these guys.

via Twitter Web Client

Infotech Place, a new glass and office building, boasts “standby generator” and “adequate water supply”.

via Cloudhopper

OK, heading into the office now. The cab awaits.

@The_Rooster Sorry, FeedDemon was on my list and I forgot it. I think it’s actually the top of my list now! ;)

@neerav Their mail app is Outlook, so it does support RSS subscriptions. Maybe that’s the go. Ugh. I’ll ponder over breakfast.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to neerav

Suggestions so far are FeedReader, SharpReader, RSS Bandit, Google Reader with Firefox/Gears, Opera.

Plus the interface will need to be as simple as possible.

@RantRotAndRuin @caelyxsec I’m reluctant to change too many things, e.g. changing browsers. They’re not geeks and time is a factor.

via Twitter Web Client

I’m thinking FeedDemon, but I’m sure there’s better, lightweight stuff. Keep it simple: they’re brand new to RSS feeds.

via Twitter Web Client

Dear Twitterverse, which RSS reader should I set these guys up with? Windows XP and Vista, most reading will be offline.

via Twitter Web Client

Sat plan (D8): Albert and Abdul’s first blog posts online, and their RSS readers set up; some writing by me too.
