It's the latest breaking news in Mauritius which Priscus already blogged a few hours ago: All Pre-Primary, Primary, Secondary and Tertiary Institutions are closed in Mauritius till 30th August 2009! So students will not have to attend school as from tomorrow till 30th August 2009. Schools should be resuming normally on Monday, August 31, 2009 depending on the decision of a special comity which will be held.
The main reason for this, is the growing number of absences in the school(51 % today) and most importantly to minimize the propagation of the AH1N1 virus which have affected many Mauritians and caused the death of around five others. Of course, disinfection of the schools will also be carried out.
Now, let's leave "swine flu" and move to my tee-shirt which I've received the day before yesterday from Opera!
I've just received my new-tee-shirt from Opera which I had won a few weeks ago through a Twitter Contest. You simply had to re-tweet a tweet and a lucky draw was to be carried to select the 10 winners. Thank you Opera for all these!
Here's a picture of the tee-shirt:
Apart from the tee-shirt I got two pens and three stickers:
You never heard of Opera or don't know much about it, read more below! Opera is a company from Norway which is mainly specialized in web browsers(it has been here since 1995!). Opera's two main and popular products are Opera Web Browser and Opera Mini.
1. Opera Web Browser
Opera Web Browser is a very cool web browser available for several operating systems. It's 1000 times better than Internet Exploder and it's definitely among the "Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari and Opera" group. It's fast, unique and easy to use. It supports torrents natively and also has widgets for several websites like Twitter. Opera was also among the first to introduce tabbed-browsing(before Firefox, Chrome and Internet Explorer). And it's free!. You can download it and view more here.
2. Opera Mini
Opera Mini is one of the best browsers available in mobile phones, I'm not bluffing, but it's true. You can view your websites just like they are in you PC, it's extremely "turboed" and it makes WAP Browsing cheaper. It has most of the features a typical mobile browser has, works in most mobile phones and it's completely free. To view more or download Opera Mini, click here.
That's all about Opera. And these are only two products of Opera, there are even more dozens here. Check them out if you haven't. Thank you once more Opera for the Tee-Shirt.
