My first surgery...THANKS IGMH....

It began in late 2004...I bleeded when I went to toilet...So I visited IGMH that year and met a surgeon...He gave medications and it stoped bleeding...


Again last Ramazaan in 2005 it began to bleed...This time I made an appointment with surgeon Dr.Shareef and he gave medications and used a probe which he inserted into my rectum and told me that I had second degree piles...The medications didn't have any effect...So he told me I had to do a surgery...He gave a series of laboratory tests to be done by me...HIV screening...blood prsessure...blood sugar...and other things...It all passed and I was declared fit at category A...I met an anaesthetic specialist who told me that I am in good health and said that he would give me a spinal injection and I do not require to take an X-Ray...The last doctor whom I met was Dr.Eshwaran whom I have been consulting regularly since 1996 after those stunts at NSS...


I was admitted at IGMH's surgical ward on the 21st and they started IV at 0730 morning...They wheeled me to the operation theater at about 0930...I was kept idle with IV in the operating ward for two hours...The staff wore all green outfits with polythene like green head coverings and was very professional and kind...The operation theater at IGMH itself was one whole detached ward...They all covered their heads and covered their noses as well...There was a beeping noise from one operation room and another beeping noise from the post and pre operating area...Opposite me was a friend of me whom I met at Riyan last year...


They all laughed when I knew my friend Shiyaa from Riyan...She was also to do a surgery...
The whole ward was very sterile and the nurses, paramedics were all professional and kind...Soon they covered me with same gear they all wore...

After two hours my doctor appeared from the operating room and came to me and asked me how I was...I said to Dr.Shareef that I am well...I was covered with a loose head covering which they all wore...Dr.Shareef read the attached file and the anesthetic specialist came and asked me whether I brought Lagretol which Dr.Eshwaran had suscribed to me for sometime...I told him that I don't know and that my dad is outside and he may have it...He told me thats ok and that he will give me a spinal...


After a few minutes they wheeled me inside the operating room and lifted me and placed me on the operating table...They removed my clothes and spread and lifted both my legs and placed both legs on a high leg stands...The anesthetic specialist lifted me by my back and I sat on the table...He told me kindly that he is now to give an injection to my spine and that I would feel that my legs going heavy...I felt the tip of the injection needle and then he applied a small dressing to stop the bleeding on my back...


Than I was laid down and the nurse kindly put a clip ( which had a long wire )on my index finger and told me that this is to check my heart beat...A beeping sound started and and the nurse ( who was a young girl and was the friend of Shiyaa above ) than placed ECG elctrodes on my chest...It was about 4 electrodes...A pressured pad was wraped on my right biceps and was linked to a machine which compressed and checked my blood pressure at regular intervals....

Dr.Shareef sat on a chair and faced my thongs...The anesthetician than asked me to lift my legs...I couldn't...It was very heavy...


They moved the large flat circular disc on the sealing with many round bulbs and it had dissipated an orange and bright light on my naked lower body .The operation started...I had a white covering in front of me so that I can't see anything from between my legs...I kept hearing about Dr.Shareef telling the nursesto hand him scissors and the surgery took only 15 minutes...I almost never felt anything...The nurse commented on how easy and quicker it was than they had anticipated...The nurse told me that the operation is over...


They removed the electrodes and lifted me and placed on a wheeled bed...The paramedics took me to the post and pre operation area...Soon Shiyaa was also brought from the theater...Her surgeon was the best surgeon in Maldives Dr.Solih...They had sofas and other recreation facilities on this area...I was listening to music and was delighted to hear a Fathey's song from Bodhaabas...


I was now shivering from the cold and they asked me about it and I nodded a yes...they covered me in thick wool blankets and had my index finger clipped and connected to another oscilloscope to check my heart beat rate...Also another blood pressure checking machine kept recording my blood pressure regularly...They kept me for another 45 minutes to see my stability and than I was moved to room no 46 where I will stay for the next 4 days...They removed the IV at about 0900 in the morning next day after Dr.Firudhoas and a team of other surgeons examined me...Dr.Firudhoas was the head of surgical department at IGMH...


My dad and mom had both been waiting outside the operation theater....


I healed well and was discharged on staurday 25th...The wounds were still raw with no dressings and healing well...Dr.Shareef told me that it was how they treat hemorrhoids ( piles )...


I want to thank my friends Majeed, Silachi, Lathy and Mustho who visited me there....And Allu, Shafeeu, Ikki, Issey and Sheyhenaaz who called to my phone and checked on me....THANKS DEAR LOVING ONES!!!!

Maldivian IRC use diminishing....

Well...to tell the truth...I started using IRC in October 2002...

This blog post is my response and experience in using the IRC chat system...

During those days of late 2002 I started to chat for the first time...It was in IRC...The nick I used was nahyz and I was in #lock and #kotari most of the time...

In December 2002 I started to use MSN too...

From what I know the #kotari was created by a group of Maldivian students who were studying abroad...The channels' created date is 22 October 1997...Just about to be an year when internet came to Maldives through an ISP(it was October 1996 that internet service was started by Dhiraagu....however internet was accessible in Maldives even before that time by using a data fax modem and dialing to an overseas internet service provider...However the price of doing this would be soaring )....

One should note that IRC use in Maldives started to grow...

But now it is fading away and the only actively registered channels in IRC is #kotari , #atolls, and #maldives ( that is it has the cservice bot @X )...The channels #lock, #Udhares, #Beach, #Holhuahsi, #Nemo, #Finimaizaan, #balaabodu, #Thebalaabodu, #Triton and #Ekuverin are the only channes I visit occasionally....I created one channel called #Bitun in 2006 and it was registered by ibu but it existed for a short time...

IRC use is falling very rapidly in Maldives and in the whole world too...Chat systems like Mig33, Windows Live Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, E-Buddy, and ofcourse Skype is more famous now...Why?...Because IRC doesn't support extensions like video chat and voice chat...It lacks many features and cannot be considered as a Web 2.0 technology...

Well I was famed in IRC in late 2003 to early 2005...It reversed in 2006...Now I am seeing most of the channels in IRC empty...Maldivian channels especially....No more than 25 people are ever online at the same time in IRC...

It is sad that IRC use is diminishing...Not only in Maldives...Some analysts have estimated that IRC will not be an acceptable means of communication by the year 2020.... :(

KK4rum...the untold stories...

It is now 4 years that Kk4rum vaporised…It was hacked…
This article is about my experience in using Kk4rum and other few forums that were in existence during those days of 2003 to 2005…
Of course the first forum I visited is lockforum ( also disbanded now )…Nobody told me about it and nobody introduced me to it…It was around April 2003 that I went to Icon Cyber and typed www.dhiraagu.com in the browser…It showed me lockforum and a few weeks later ,I registered in it…Funny it was…www.dhiraagu.com was redirected to lockforum…Those boys dot, Eifini, stallone, and aE are the few people I know from lockforum…They were gaining unfair publicity from redirecting www.dhiraagu.com domain into lockforum…One should know the local telcom company Dhiraagu web presence is http://www.dhiraagu.com.mv/ and the domain dhiraagu.com is owned by the boys of lockforum.
It was on 21 September 2003 ( the day after Male’ was routed by the mob ) that I saw www.kk4rum.net…I registered the same day in it..It was more…how shall I put it…heavy metal like that the other few forums…There was www.rattehin.com and www.bichoo.net all I was using…My username in these forums were guestworm but in kk4rum I used the ID ibilees ( I feel embarrassed now using that name and I regret it very much )…
The guys dhumaari and hot were moderating www.kk4rum.net….I saw dhumaari, Aishath, gorukaneli, RedDevils, and KidX in IRC channel kotari in 2003…They were all in kk4rum…I was in the Debates thread and my first topic was “Do girls or boys lie most?”…
It should be noted that all these forums were using Microsoft SQL Server 2000 as the database and ASP as the scripting technology…Kk4rum got a bonus point as it had SMS facilities which all the other forums didn’t have…But this facility didn’t work most of the time…
In December 2003 I got famed in IRC after pin pointing lockforum’s unethical ways of redirecting www.dhiraagu.com to it…I wrote a topic in Kk4rum as such…This made Kk4rum especially famous in the channels of IRC like #lock ( which is run by the same team as lockforum) and in #kotari.
During 2004 my so called well whishing friends, now my enemies, started to make useless posts in Kk4rum…they hailed bichoo.net which was the most unpopular forum by members…The only notable feature, if any, bichoo.net had is that it had English and Dhivehi sections separately…My friends were talking none sense as SMS IRC bots ( which is a none existent term ) linked to bichoo, and that bichoo had SMS features which is not true…
In late 2004 there was many posts by me in Kk4rum and these so called friends of mine blow there identity in Kk4rum…I revealed there jealous ways and it back fired on them…
My volatile behavior is what I claim why Kk4rum got hacked at last…By a bunch of IT guys…Their blog still exists…no now extinct…hehehehehe…Visit http://kkforum.blogspot.com/ ( as I celebrate the fourth year of Kk4rum been disbanded…So do the thugs who hacked it…4 is the number…And late May comes the day in which time it was hacked…I am writing this article in midnight of or in other words…early morning of 7 June 2009…The given blog has been removed by the hackers who brought misery to Kk4rum…They are celebrating it !!!)…It is an imposing and boasty blog…Kk4rum was hacked incidentally but not from the genius of the hackers…They had a copy of the forum software which Kk4rum used and it was after studying its structure for days and days ( could be weeks ) that these guys found the loop holes and back door entries in to Kk4rum…
Well…I miss Kk4rum....I miss hot, dhumaari, faripary, Aishath, gorukaneli, RedDevils and KidX…Than the stars in kk4rum and also early users of kk4rum..
.
Lockforum was retired in 2005…It was a huge failure…
Now Maldivian IRC is going down and diminishing…But other forums come and go…
My active forum of any interest is now Maldivian soccer forum…I am registered there as my old IRC nick guestworm…I visit there occasionally…Click: http://msforum.activebb.net/
2003 to 2005…THOSE WERE THE GOOD OLD DAYS OF Kk4rum…MARK ONE!!!
