Well there is this cliché that all is well that ends well. March is already gone and I know what is in the minds of many: Easter. Easter. Easter. Well, yours truly is not exempted from this Easter madness and I have already started my short campus break and made some orders for my Easter eggs and a bunny
Before the holiday mood engulfs us completely, let me do a recap of all the articles that have been posted here since the beginning of the month we are bidding farewell.
The month started on a high note here with my learned friend Anthony Simiyu asking what would happen if President Mwai Kibaki would back the Right Hon Prime Minister, Raila Odinga for the presidential seat.
Then came the bloggers’ meetup at the iHub for the pre-release hype and know how session for Microsoft’s cloud service that is yet to be officially launched in Kenya, Windows Azure. I covered that here.
On the day the Apple iPad (new iPad) was to be unveiled, Google announced that it had merged all its multimedia stores into one hub, Google Play. That too got its fair share of coverage though I uploaded the post behind schedule due to technical hitches.
The same fate of delayed posting and further minor editing post-publication befell my conclusive and complete guide on how to install Windows 7 using a USB flash drive. Well, the post is now well updated and any ambiguity carefully explained. It has been one of the most widely read posts on this blog in the month of March. Have a look.

Well, things don’t always go as expected and this is what happened at the Kenya version of the Old Firm derby. The bitter exchanges spilled online and I wrote a few lines to drill sense into our minds.
Fighting on the pitch? Well, that happens and it also happens in homes. Perturbed by the increase in the number of men having to swallow all their manly egos and pride and be subjected to thorough beatings by their wives, my learned friend Anthony Simiyu had an incisive look at the matter and here are his conclusions.
The month had to end with positive news now that my other darling, football, was the source of my sorrow,. The good news came from the makers of popular iOS photo app Instagram. The announcement that it is coming soon to Android means I have something to look forward to in the coming month(s).
