Mr. Webmaster, there has been a lot of talks about more action and less talk lately. Well, a friend of mine has been doing just that. Fortunately, i have been able to convince him to share the progress report of a Ghanaian project he just worked on during the summer with Ghanathink readers. His project is about a technology to curb counterfeit drugs in Ghana and Africa as a whole. It makes an interesting piece for this site and needs to be posted for public consumption. I believe it's a great example to readers about the litte things we could do to change our country and continent. However, it's a pdf file of size 1.73MB (greater than 1MB allowed). How do I post it? Thanks
Instead of trying to post here, perhaps you could use another web service (web log, or web site host) and create a hyperlink in this web site for readers to navigate to. Without researching too deeply, I suppose blogger or lycos tripod are two services that could help. Alternatively, you could try to create a tar or zip archive to compress the file further; 7zip can do that.
I'd be curious to read about the subject matter, e.g. is the technology to be deployed by law enforcement agencies or consumers?

gkdapaa, I sent you a pm with my email address.
Is this the mpedigree project?
I had a chance to talk to one of the founders last time i was in Accra.
Sounded very promising - can't wait to see what you have.
FYI: gkdapaa's post together with the document is available
