IT in a country

Using the Internet has been prevalent only recently.But this is not included the whole country. Even in capital city there are only 40%. 30% use the Internet for fun, entertainment like chatting. 5% use it for commerce. The last 5% use it their research.

In my country, even a (BSc in Computer Science)graduate can't properly write any programs at all. In our computer universities and colleges, students are all engaged in learning computer books. They have no proper or regular practice on computers. Some students don't have their own computers. They learn computer theories by heart for passing the exams.

It's true that many computer training companies have been established. However,their purposes are for making their living;for their benefits rather than the future of youth;the training prices are high; the jobs are rare. So no one can ever adore computer field.

There are probably some bright IT professionals. But they use their knowledge for their own benefits. I'd like them to call us by seminars;but they don't ever.

So many prospective students go to foreign countries for better future.

You seem to have omitted a vital piece of information: what country are you talking about? Just to put things into perspective, you know...

You're kidding right?

... No offense, but what the hell are you on about? lol. I'm a bit confused, maybe I read wrong but you just stated the situation in your post and that was it. Is there a question? Is there a point?

Well how about if I say where you are from? I do know where you're from. And I guess I can see somewhat why you would be so cautious as to not say the name of your country. Still I have no idea what it would be like living under a military government so I don't know what to say really.

Believe it or not...

Using computers was introduced around 1996 ,let alone using the Internet.

However it was not so popular 'cause the price of a computer is so high even for a mid-come family.

Everyone can't own a computer.

High Schools have some Apple computers for multimedia teching.
But they don't use them regularly for that purpose.

If I were born in other countries, I'll be ...........

Thank you, my dear moderator MHTML, for your kindness and understanding.

I'm very curious though, it's not easy to find deep information about your country. What sort of restrictions does the government impose on you there?

This thread's gonna become a place for discussing politics....

I'm afraid they're watching or tracing me :eek:
But I have to say one thing.
They don't impose us,students, directly, but do in a indirect way.


Any way, thank you ,dear moderator

what the??!

errm.. well i spose we can narrow it down to a non-english speaking country, probably with a high paranoia rate

i dont really know wht hes on about though, fewer people with skills means those who do have the skills can make the money they deserve, there isnt really much money in programming compared to other jobs anyway, my teacher keeps telling me to become a systems analyst or project manager so he put me on this crappy course about project management and it was blow-your-brains-out boring but really, those who can learn it on their own probably deserve the money more :thumbsup:

btw, any organisation is there to make money if you think about it, nothings free, even non profit orgs are there to make money for other people, its all about survival, you work to make money, to buy essentials like food, to live

Guessing the country is probably a bad idea. I was reading about it last night, very interesting. It's hard to imagine from the perspective of someone from the US.

But IT really does set countries free, yeah? I've heard lots about stenography and the such in China. It would be interesting to hear about IT experiences from places like North Korea and the like.

I doubt many of us in the western countries do. I wouldn't call it paranoia until the country is open enough for us foreigners to see what happens there.

It really is hard to imagine isn't it? I mean you can imagine it, but then you know that what you're imagining couldn't possibly be what it's like because you have no precedent to base it on. You couldn't possibly know the fear they would live in under that sort of oppression.

What I do find impressive though is that they have a fairly strong economy considering the sanctions they have against them.

Come on Dude...
You just need to think outside of the box a wee bit...
You too, can capture someones IP# by simply using a remotely hosted image using the bbCode [img] tag... And if you want to be extremely clever, use one people are used to seeing so they do not suspect what you are doing...

Then again, there is much to be said for surfing thru a proxy...
Or tunnel as it were (think SOCKS)...

Carry on;

We do accept some restrictions on using the Internet

I don't say for porn sites. They should be banned .

But the worse is we can't have access to some educational sites.

You can' t believe it.

They might ban this codingforums thread.

Please see the attachments.

Thank you for your understanding..

--------------------------------

Dear moderators,
Let this thread be a place for airing my feeling....
Thanks. thanks..

Is that what you meant by... "They don't impose us,students, directly, but do in a indirect way"?

I see. Similar restrictions are imposed on business internet and educational internet facilities even in these countries. Is this a country wide thing? Like Saudi Arabia has.

In our country, if you can learn the books by heart , then you'll be the top 1 on the whole.

We here , people, focus only on theorectical field not on practical things .

We have to learn the programming methods by heart although we don't write programs very well.

Is it fair or natural?

____________________________________
The price of using the Internet at the Cafe is high .
I can't always afford to search the web for educational purpose.
In addition, let's assume , I'm at home in one programming subject in a practical way.
Unfortunately, this isn't of much benefit or even a detrimental effect for me on my exams.
The things from the web teaches or help me only for my self-improvement.
They can't help me pass my exams.

'Cause the way is different like the front and the back.

Those "Access Denied" pages are generated byt the same thing my school uses... in fact, they blocked CF until I spoke to the admin.

One thing I noted a while ago is internet restriction filters like to take all the fun out of the 'net...why on earth would anyone want to block CF?:confused:

Perhaps somebody's being paid by the banned site? ;)

The high school I'm about to graduate from (just got my required 40hrs of forced volunteering done!) used to have one in place. I don't think CF (probably WA forums at the time) was banned, but many sites were that simply didn't make sense. It's kind of like real lawmakers, abusing their abilities pretty much just because they can (http://www.promisebreakersclub.com/) (I know there are better examples, such as the pitbull ban, but I was looking for a quick example). On the other hand, I'm glad to be able to say that.

My school blocked CF and a few other sites once. So naturally, having admin priviliges which I stole through a mock novell login I created. I just unblocked it and the blocked a few other legit sites the real admin visited....what was really great was when he put that remote control software software for class management on the computers, bad idea, two words...packet sniffer. Aww school was fun, nowadays I sit around being lazy...not much change I guess.

Is internet usage limited only to students?

What we are facing is not limited within our schools?
The entire country... :cool:

We can't really enjoy the fruitful results of the greatest person 'cause we have restrictions.

Even to write this, I have to try many ways.

'cause it's been banned.
