Since this server hosts several important sites, i had to react quickly and moved the server to the other ISP and since then, i have to wait for at least 24 hours for the DNS entries get propagated around the world. Right now, they are back to normal business and i can start updating my repositories back again

The first tool that will be equipped with this kind of jailbreak will be greenp0ison, the same tool i used for my first attempt on jailbreaking my iPad.
The article is still being edited before the final phase and it should be out by tonight (Indonesian time)
Let's hope it's the real deal
Android and iOS are two of the most dominant players in phone market. Both combined can take more than 50% of the phone market users. What makes them great? The community. Yes, it's the community that makes them growth over the years. People build applications for both Android and iOS-based devices and put them on Android Market and also Apple AppStore.
You can be one of them since Google and Apple opened up their SDK to developers. All you need is the study them and start building your applications and put it on their online store to be published for public. As for Android development itself, Google has created a very nice application called Google App Inventor which enables users to create Android applications from any platform (unlike Apple which is limited to Apple product users since the only tool able to build is by using XCode).
Ralph Roberts has created a very nice book called Google App Inventor and this book requires no prior experience of building Android applications. It's a perfect companion for those who wanted to learn about building applications targetting Android-based devices. It will show you how to build Android applications step by step using easy-to-understand examples and by the end of this book, you will utilize all the features available on most Android-based devices, such as GPS and sensors for your applications. Basically, it gives you all you need to know about using Google App Inventor to create magnificent products.
This book is available in Amazon, but if you want to buy the eBook version, you can visit PacktPub. You can get more discount if you buy both version (printed and ebook). Oh, for certain countries, you will also get a free shipping cost. Sounds a great deal.
While Google App Inventor development will be closed this year, in the future, it will be shifted to MIT Center for Mobile Learning and it will be ready by next year (there will be some period of time when you can't access the system during the transition), so don't worry that you will loose all what you have created using this very nice application.
If you wanted to learn about Android development, this is the first book that you should get

On the individual level, staying healthy is not the work of healthcare professionals. Though online health science classes are available, but most of staying healthy is really common sense. Eating vegetables, drinking water and getting sleep are the bare minimum to stay healthy, but if people actually do it, then it makes a big difference.
In Indonesia, buying a medicine would require the patient to go to the nearest hospital or drugstore, but in some countries, you can buy those medicine online via websites that offers online transactions. One of the famous one is canada online pharmacy. Even though it's Canadian-based, it ships the medicine worldwide, so you can sit and relax at home while waiting for the medicine to be delivered to your place. If you pick the correct site, you will get a cheaper price for the same products, which is a good reason why picking up a good site will give you more benefit.
Since there has been a lot of Internet Pharmacy Emails, you
should be careful of picking the website that offers this kind of services

I found this movie quite boring for the story, but it was funny enough, especially when puss showed his big, innocent eyes like this (it's a dog, not a cat, but you know the idea). I'll give this movie as 7/10 in overall

Even though Google+ is not too successful in terms of number of users compared to Facebook, but i guess Google Hangouts is another success story of Google for providing an easy way for their users to have a better means of communications meadia over the Internet.
I will try to use Google Hangouts more in the future

So, i created a very simple bash script which uses passwd command to disable an account and set the time the script is to be executed by cron. Here's the simple script:
#!/bin/bashlet's say i name it lock.sh. All i need now is to set this script as executable and then add the time to crontab and it will be executed at the time defined.
/usr/bin/passwd username -l
Basically this command will add a character "!" to the shadow file so that user will not be able to login (because the password will be incorrect) and it's easy to solve my problem. If i need to reinstate that username again, i can just issue /usr/bin/passwd username -u and voila.... it will be able to login again.

Since 1991, Indonesia has never won the title and it's time to get the title it back from Thailand, which is the defending champion. Currently, Indonesia is leading at the top of the table with quite a big gap from the second position (Thailand), and i hope it continues until the end of the event and we could be the winner again.

It was a very funny movie (as always and expected from Rowan Atkinson). It successfully reduces my stress level I picked the correct decision by picking this instead of The Adventures of Tintin. I think Tintin will also be humorous, thanks to the Captain Haddock's behaviour. Oh well, let's leave it for some other day

Here's the announcement i got from the PR of The Document Foundation
LibreOffice on stage at the Libre Software World Conference in Zaragoza
The Internet, November 9, 2011 - The Document Foundation (TDF) announces LibreOffice 3.4.4, an improved version of the award-winning free office suite for Windows, Mac and Linux. LibreOffice has recently won InfoWorld's BOSSIE Award 2011 as Best of Open Source Software, and the Open World Forum Experiment Award of Most-Popular Software.
SUSE's Andras Timar, who manages the LibreOffice localization effort, says, "Thanks to the contribution of Michael Bauer, a volunteer who took the long-time-abandoned Scottish Gaelic translation and produced a complete UI localization in just a few months, LibreOffice 3.4.4 adds yet another native-language version, bringing the total to 105. This shows the unparalleled value of copyleft licenses for end user software, as LibreOffice is now the most-important office suite when it comes to protecting cultural heritage worldwide, especially when the number of native speakers is not sufficiently attractive for large corporations to devote localization resources to."
Today, TDF and LibreOffice will also be on stage at the Libre Software World Conference (LSWC) in Zaragoza, where Jesus Corrius - a deputy member of the TDF Board of Directors - will keynote about "TDF: the home of LibreOffice". LSWC is the most-prominent free software event in Spain, and the presence of a member of the TDF Board of Directors is a testimonial of the efforts that the project is devoting to developing a large and diverse Spanish-speaking community, in which each local community in Europe and the Americas can grow and thrive within a single global project.
LibreOffice 3.4.4 is available for immediate download from the following link: http://www.libreoffice.org/dow
nload/. Extensions for LibreOffice are available from the following link: http://extensions.libreoffice. org/extension-center.
Change logs are available at http://ftp.snt.utwente.nl/pub/

This restaurant previously was also a Korean restaurant called Arirang, but somehow it was closed and now it has came up again with a new management, owner, and also in a new brand called Dae Jang Geum. The place has quite a big space and i think it can hold up to 250 people.
It's been a long time since i tasted Korean food and i think the food here is much better than in Sila, another Korean food which i didn't really like. It seems my tounge is not so friendly with Korean food

Since today is also a big day for Moslem people, the waterpark wasn't as crowded as it used to be. When i arrived there, we were the first guest . Some of the employeers were just arrived when we got there. The place is nice and big enough to hold around 250 people in the same time.
We enjoyed most of the facilities first since no people there, so no queue at all. It's like our own private place and we loved it. Unfortunately we forgot to bring our camera, so we didn't take any photos at all
Which place should we visit next week? Gokart maybe? Who knows....

I even used the configuration i have on my desktop at home and used it as my reference to build the kernel on my workstation but it keeps failing. I suspect there has been a default value changes in the new kernel that caused it to behave strangely. I copied the configuration used in ArchLinux, but still no luck
My next attempt is to compare the configuration i have with the previous working configuration. I'm trying to match the configuration, but let's see how it goes later on
- Do a Barrel Roll
Tilt is a term used when you play pinball in Windows. You can shake the machine in order to avoid loosing the game by tilting, thus shake the machine so that the ball won't go into the hole.
These two definitions are being used in the Google home page and it will exactly do what it has been told. Try for yourself

Step 1: First of all, head over to Settings.app on your device, then Location Services and finally tap on System Services. (Settings > Location Services > System Services)
Step 2: On that page, at the bottom you will get a toggle switch to turn OFF/ON “Status Bar Icon.” Switch ON that toggle to test, is something going on your device? Definitely, something going on!
Step 3: Now, heads over to the main part of the tip, at the same page you will get “Setting Time Zone,” all you have to do is a toggle it OFF, and check the status bar for the icon, is it still there? Well not!
Step 4: That’s it! Now enjoy the new battery life of your device on iOS 5.
That's it. Piece a cake right? Yup.. the bug was due to Apple software tried to keep tracking the location of the device for the auto time zone setting, which cause continuously using the GPS service of the device, and considerably it draining device battery. By turning off the feature, hopefully you will regain your long lasting battery
