Hi guys, its been a long time. I am tired of making empty promises (regarding posting regularly) so, let me not do it again. While I was beginning my data-science journey, I tried to collect as many sources for Nepali datasets as possible, and the following is the listing of the same. The problem is most of these datasets are in PDF (most are in a booklet), so you’d have to use some extraction utilities such as Tabula to convert it into a CSV or workable file format.
Hey everyone, this post is specifically meant for guys from Nepal, so if you’re not from there, you might want to skip reading it.
This is a guest post by Nootan Ghimire, who recently helped to organize #hack4good for the first time in Nepal.
I assume you have already gotten yourself a .NP domain name. If not, you can read the process here.
Mercantile only lets you change Nameservers of your domain, however, services such as Google’s Blogger and Tumblr, require you to change A Record and CNAME, but not the nameservers. So, if you wish to use your domain name for hosting blogger or tumblr blog, then there’s only one alternative : to use third-party DNS service which supports A and CNAME records. Here’s what you need to do in order to use your .com.np domain with Tumblr.
So, I recently registered my own .com.np domain. Mercantile Communications Pvt. Ltd. provides .np NPccTLD (country code top-level domain) to Nepali citizens for free. You can get .np TLD based on your name for personal use, and also, if you have an organization registered at Nepal, you can get a .np name of your organization for free.
Last time we had talked about a service developed by a Nepali company which allowed users to make money every time their cell phone rang. This time also, we have got a service, which is developed in Nepal and can make you money not just for picking up calls, but for viewing SMS’ as well. It is somewhat different, however.
I just learned about this Android app called CashOnAd which is suprisingly, home-made (when I say home-made, I mean made in Nepal). It is suprising because it deals with something not so popular in our country – making money through an unconventional way. What it does is let you watch video advertisements whenever you receive a call, and for each 6 seconds of video advertisement that you watch, you will earn 1 cent (~1 NPRupees at current rate). That does not sound much, but at least its something, I guess.
PayPal, the most popular online payment processor, can be used by Nepalese but only for the purpose of sending money. A Nepali PayPal account cannot be used to receive money. We had talked about creating a PayPal of another country and withdrawing the money in Nepal earlier . On this post, however, we’re going to explain to you how you can verify a Nepali PayPal account which can only be used to send payments.
Ncell, the leading mobile operator in Nepal, is set to introduce a new campaign for the subscribers of Lumbini and Rapti Zone*. The new campaign, which has been named “Regional International Incoming Call Bonus” or “Call aayo bonus paayo” (in Nepali) will be launched two days from now, on June 05, 2013.
Here’s a detailed tutorial that will guide you on how you can withdraw money from PayPal in Nepal. That’s right. You can get the money right in your hands! At the end of this tutorial, you will have your own verified PayPal and will be able to withdraw the money here in Nepal. I have tried to go through everything I know. If you guys are still confused after reading this, please let me know. I’m sorry if the tutorial seems long, I just wanted to be as thorough as possible.
I had posted earlier an article explaining how you could get a US number and forward SMS sent to your own local phone for free. Since that method expired a long time back, I’ve come up with this new tutorial.
