Yippee! I am so glad we were able to rapidly deploy Comeriver Workplace Software Suite. Many thanks to God for the grace given to me and everyone who worked on the development team. Though it was a long overdue task, I must say the COVID-19 Coronavirus outbreak was just the valid ginger needed to expedite development.

My work in the recent years have made me believe we need to do better to help our corporate workforce be efficient and productive. I’ve seen many employees abandon their work and do the unthinkable - abusing the team resources like internet connectivity and digital devices. Some watch movies, download games, apply for another job, chat with friends and waste away precious time and resources the employer has allocated to get work done. 

When team members are not doing what they are hired to do, everyone loses. The team member will miss out on the relevant work experiences they could have gathered while the team will suffer losses in achieving their goals. Such waste of time and resources can be attributed to why there is so much rot in our society. 

Now with Comeriver Workplace, businesses and teams; especially those that their team members use computer for work can now take advantage of technology to ensure productivity. To learn more about the software and how it works, please visit workplace.comeriver.com

Who Built the Software?

Meanwhile, it is very important for me to appreciate the team that worked on this; Ayo (my half namesake) - a recent graduate of The Polytechnic, Ibadan wrote the first lines of code and the designed the software architecture. Malik - a student on Industrial Training from The Bells University designed/wrote the client login interphase. They both are Software Development Interns at Comeriver using C#/.Net and PageCarton to do the magic. 

Tolulope Ogundiji is the worthy mentor on the project, providing guidance and technical assistant to the interns. His help was instrumental to this fast deployment. Kudos to you friend. I also wrote a little code there. Haha 😂. The software is open source, so the codes are hosted on GitHub. Though most users will prefer to use the hosted version which is on our website for a fee. 

Now you can help us out by spreading the word about this solution. Most companies/organizations and governments need software like this to ensure productivity. 

What Would it Cost to Use ComeRiver Workplace?

The pricing is so affordable that the madam selling Akara on the street can pay effortlessly. The cost right now is ₦20 per hour and it is post paid, meaning that you use it first before you pay. So for a team that has four members, if the team works average of 5 hours per day, the daily rates will be:

20 x 5 x 4 = ₦400 per day. 

Though all payments are deferred until the end of the month. I believe 400 naira is nothing compared to what the team will gain when they are efficient and productive.

To encourage those who want to help us share this message, I’ll have an offer that will pay such person handsomely for up to one year by just referring us to someone who will subscribe to our services. Up to 20 percent on the subscription payments for a year will go into referrals. 

Imagine how much one would earn if they refer clients totally 100 team members or more. That’s about 10k per day residual income that’s guaranteed for a year. My DM is open for business for anyone interested in this. 

What about Comeriver Mail?

Remember, today being April 1st, we have previously announced we will be launching Comeriver Mail - the first Nigerian indigenous email service? Well, Workplace is taking it's place in the scheme of things now LOL. A new date will be announced soon to launch the email service; apologies for those on the waiting list.

Pestilence . Religion . Nations . Midgets

It’s interesting to see how the whole world bows to just one small virus. I laugh! Why? Well, dark days are here but those who parade themselves as flood lights has gone to hide.

It’s interesting to see how the whole world bows to just one small virus. I laugh! Why? Well, dark days are here but those who parade themselves as flood lights has gone to hide. Now the whole street is hopeless; the world groans and we are in obvious disarray.

Our kids will laugh at us when they go through the history books and find out how the midget cripple our giants. Didn’t we also wondered how the world lived without antibiotics. When people died in millions to harmful microbes and Penicillin (an invention which came just by accident) became the savior?

As advanced as some of these bully countries claim to be, just one small virus has taught them to stay at home. The so-called “greatest country in the world” closed her border even against her allies. Blame games are flying like missiles from countries to countries. When the giants of the world are feeling, the midgets should just commit suicide, right? No, times like this reminds us that the world really has no giant. The message of equality makes the best sense here, that one day, the whole world stands still and will listen to one (anyone whoever) who has the solution for it’s shortcoming. Let's rise, dear midgets. Let us rise for the last time as midgets and become that who slay what giants flee from.

This also reminds me of one thing. That the only safe place in this world is in The Word of God. Jesus already spoke about pestilence - Pestilence means a deadly and overwhelming disease that affects an entire community. In Matthew 24: 7 (KJV) Jesus said:  “For nation shall rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom, and there shall be famines and PESTILENCES and earthquakes in divers places.”; But surprising yet he said also in verse 8 (The Message): “This is nothing compared to what is coming.”.  Reading about this, I use to think of this as the problem of the third-world countries. But, we all know better now.

But should we be afraid? No, we need not fear! The Bible says in Psalm 91:1-16 (ESV): He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler. You will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day”. 

What should we do then? The answer is the message Isaiah 60 which says : “Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you. 2See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the LORD rises upon you and his glory appears over you (Isaiah 60:1-2). This is time for the true sons of God to arise and be the light of the world in this dark days. 

Selah!

I am 32 and Fabulous

Article by Ayoola Falola in

2020 is a great year, the year I turn 32. I am grateful for a lot – first for the good life and also for the wonderful people that have crossed my path in the last year. This time of the year is not only significant to me because of it being my birthday, it is even more so a day I have given birth to many other things that make up my life. This is not a day to drop a long epistle, but I being a somewhat deep person do better when I put down my thoughts before I share. So as the Psalm...

2020 is a great year, the year I turn 32. I am grateful for a lot – first for the good life and also for the wonderful people that have crossed my path in the last year. This time of the year is not only significant to me because of it being my birthday, it is even more so a day I have given birth to many other things that make up my life.

This is not a day to drop a long epistle, but I being a somewhat deep person do better when I put down my thoughts before I share. So as the Psalmist asked God to teach us [how] to number our days, sometimes, I just want to do things that would help remind me to be grateful for everything that has come my way. I also want to read my texts in years after and have a peek on what my thoughts were and also get graph-like snippets of my path of growth.

What’s up in 2020? So I do want to join a political party this year - in preparation to declare my intentions to run for an executive  (political) position in 2023. Yay! By 2023, I would be old enough to run for any office I so feel like in Nigeria. I think our dear country, Nigeria needs people like us, who have the vision and courage to step up and take responsibility of leadership of this country.

Enough of hoping for a better future for the coming generation; I think its time we join hands to build a great nation of our dreams. So I am on a look out for that solid party to join, any recommendations? Caveat though, I am not ready to start experimenting with parties without a solid structure or foundation; I would appreciate your prayers and support.

Also, I noticed we do not have any indigenous email solution in Nigeria. Russia has a “mail.ru”, South Africa has a “mail.co.za”; so I am building an email platform specially packaged for Nigeria.  It wouldn’t be so much work for me (It is a lot of work though), being one of Africa’s finest programmer and server administrator (*winks*) and also having championed a corporate email server “Comeriver Mail” specially for our website clients for many years, I could build this million-dollar venture with a minor fraction of what it should cost. Also, I will appreciate name suggestions for our email platform. Finally, a decade-old dream might come alive this year!

Making all the sense out of PageCarton

Article by Ayoola Falola in

When I started to write the codes of PageCarton in 2011, it seemed like the crazy thing to do. But then, crazy was not new to me. People around me knows me to be an ambassador for crazy. I thought we could have a web framework that could be broken down into tiny bits.

When I started to write the codes of PageCarton in 2011, it seemed like the crazy thing to do. But then, crazy was not new to me. People around me knows me to be an ambassador for crazy.

I thought we could have a web framework that could be broken down into tiny bits. So I thought about breaking down web content into smaller “widgets” which will have their own independent URL, classes and links. Then, I envisioned we could programmatically call each widgets independently on the page. So web pages will be a collection of “tiny” widgets. 

The idea made sense to me, but I really didn’t know whether it would be sensible in implementation. Nevertheless, the idea of a whole new structure for web took over me for almost a decade and here we are today, still on that journey!

Just now, while writing the PageCarton plug-in for “Single Page Application”, I am  super glad I dreamt that of it time and decided to work on it. 

I was just reading through the scholarly best practices for implementation of SPA and I was like, “PageCarton was born ready for this”. I can’t believe that with just a single file plugin, PageCarton will implements all the best-practice tips for a Single Page Application. That’s how you know you have a great framework!

Awesomeness, right? That I dreamt of today’s best practice 10 freaking years ago. This happens to me so often, I guess that’s why I am always encouraged to do what I feel is right every time I get the chance.

The SPA plugin will be out next week; who is excited?

To me, to my brothers & sisters and to everyone who has known you, in love. Whoever thinks otherwise doesn’t really know you.  It’s been a challenge being a son of a great man.

My dear father,

I love you. 

I thank God everyday for you. You have been a great inspiration and a symbol of courage and love. To me, to my brothers & sisters and to everyone who has known you, in love. Whoever thinks otherwise doesn’t really know you. 

It’s been a challenge being a son of a great man. Having the responsibility to live up to the standards you set and yet break the barriers which limited your existence.

My heart longs to uphold all the godly standards you stood for. I don’t think there is anything any father could have given a child that you didn’t give to us. You have helped us appreciate the values pertaining to God, family and work. You, like any of us humans is without flaws, but God has helped you to rise above them all  

By His grace, we won’t do less; we shall not be less. Our lives in God is better because God has set you ahead of us. Our family will be better because of you. Our work will be better because of you. 

I want to thank you for everything you did and still doing for us, your children. It is a great privilege to be called your son.

Your wife loves you, she fondly calls you “hus-me” (husband mi, right?). Your children loves you; no, we adore you. 

Today is not Fathers Day. Neither is it your birthday. But everyday of my life,

I am proud to be called

“Omo ‘Abenja”
