  2. Sinhala is not compatible across all platforms Sinhalaya.
    This fact is also confirm by 187

    Do not expect all the people to use XP.
    Also even when it has been installed we still read rubbish.

  3. Donald,

    Don’t you have any shame man?

    If you want to be ICTA Chairman start a self promotion campaign somewhere else. Not here.

    Don’t waste this space by posting self promotional material under pseudo names.

  4. I use my name for any promotion.

    Mihisara why don’t you talk about the problems of SLSI 1134 and answer them.

    When the truth is exposed it is very hurting

    ඔබේ වෙබ් අඩවියත් එහි ඇති හරයත් වටහා ගත් මට වැටහුනේ සිංහල යුනිකේත වල වැරද්දක් නැති බවයි. නවතම සිංහල යුනිකේත බාවිතා කර බලන්න

    Sinhalaya comment from Lirneasia this is “rubbish sinhala”

    Also I reply to 193 — I have been telling that SLSI 1134 is incomplete and incorrect for the past several years. Pls visit akuru web site and read all comments posted in this blog

    Also go to and see who hold my Akuru Domian. all these are unethical acts by IT mafia in Lanka.

  11. Now this thread is also exceeding 200 posts. Time to start new one!!!
    This blog is not only about software issues. It covers so many IT issues, including IT policy. So please name the next thread some ting like “IT issues in Sri Lanka” or some thing with little more broad scope than geeky software word in the thread name. It will attract may be more people(if that is what you guys wanted, [ha ha I cant stop this bad habit])

  12. Interesting quote from Sunday times

    “Professor Samaranayake had a kind of righteous anger. He just could not stand people who obstructed the path to progress, whether it is in the University or in industry or in the country as a whole. . . . ”
