Leap Day

Today is a special day because today doesn't always available every year. Yes, it's due to leap year effect so that it makes today is so special. In several countries, some laws are no longer valid during this special days because the law are only applicable during normal days (one of the 365 days in normal year), so people used this chance to do something that is normally prohibited, such as women proposing to her boyfriend.

Taken from Leap Day Tradition:
A man was expected to pay a penalty, such as a gown or money, if he refused a marriage proposal from a woman on Leap Day. In many European countries, especially in the upper classes of society, tradition dictates that any man who refuses a woman's proposal on February 29 has to buy her 12 pairs of gloves. The intention is that the woman can wear the gloves to hide the embarrassment of not having an engagement ring.

Android 4.0 for x86

Android 4.0 is getting closer to release for x86 processors after they released a release candidate version. It includes (not the latest though) 3.0.8 Linux kernel with KMS enabled. It should be working for most laptops/netbooks.

It's based on Android's 4.0.3 and supports OpenGL hardware acceleration on AMD Radeon and Intel chipsets. It also includes support for multi-touch, Wi-Fi, audio, Bluetooth, accelerometers and some built-in cameras. However, its developers note that suspend and resume may not work on some targets, and that Ethernet (wired LAN) is not currently functioning. More features can be seen on the release notes.

If you are interested with this release, go download it.

Social Engineering Movies

Tomorrow, i will have my last class of computer security before mid test and the topic will be about social engineering. I'm planning to play a movie that used social engineering techniques to achieve their goals such as Catch Me If You Can or The Italian Jobs. I already have the second one, but i'm on a progress of downloading the first one.

I have watched both of them and i really think these two movies are very suitable for showing how social engineering can be very tricky, useful, and also dangerous when it's not being used for something good.

Salute to Ryan Giggs

Even though he's over 30 years old, he's still running and scoring every year. He's probably the only person in the world who can play for more than 12 years and keep scoring every year. Even though he's not a striker, his goal instict is undeniable. He is Ryan Giggs.

He is probably one of the most successfull football player in English Premiere League and also in the world. He has won numerous title over the last 10 years of his carreer and it didn't stop him until the end of this season since he got another one-year contract from Manchester United.

Today, he has just made his 900th appearance for Manchester United and gave a winning goal to bring United stay close to Manchester City who have played their game yesterday. Unfortunately, the winning goal can't put MU on top of the table since City won their match. I believe it's gonna be a tough season for MU, but they still have a big chance to win the title once again.

Utilizing Bandwidth

It's been a long time since i downloaded a lot of files in a month. My record was around 120 GB a month and that was last year i guess. Right now, i have less bandwidth, because it was very expensive for me to pay for the same bandwidth i used few years ago.

Good news is that the ISP is good enough to loosen the bandwidth limiter for me. I don't know whether it's on purpose or incidently, but right now i got around 2 Mbps even though i only paid for 384 Kbps. I'm glad that they provide this luxurious bandwidth to me as i need them to get some materials for my courses.

As a matter of facts, i'm really utilizing it right now. So far, my bandwidth usage for this month up to day 24 is around 54 GB. That means in one day, i'm downloading more than 2 GB of files. I think it will surpass 60 GB by the end of this month, but i'm not sure how far can i go with it.

Hell's Kitchen

Fox's Hell Kitchen is basically one of my favorite TV show right now. I first notice this TV show when i had my honeymoon with my wife in Singapore. At that time, i didn't know which season i was watching, but i found it very interesting and i can use this kind of movie into my Project Management classes. I have used several videos from the latest season 9 last semester and right now, i'm on progress of downloading Season 8 which i haven't watched yet for this semester's classes.

I will also have another movie to watch at night since lately, i'm not really in a mood to watch KDramas again since i don't think the airing KDramas are good enough to watch.

No Flash on Future Linux

Adobe will stop distributing Flash Player as a standalone releases for Linux after they released 11.2 later this year. The H reported that they will only provide Flash via Google Chrome browsers by the use of PPAPI or Pepper, but somehow, Mozilla is not interested about this work.

Adobe will continue to provide security updates for the non-Pepper versions of Flash Player 11.2 for Linux for five years after its release, so hopefully within these five years, Adobe can rethink about their decision and correct it in the future.

Read the official announcement from Adobe.

Pros and Cons of Cloud-Based Managed Services

As more companies move to the cloud, there is a strong demand for managed services providers to help support an increasingly complex IT infrastructure. Cloud-based managed services are maintained by a third party entity and are highly effective for businesses that may not have the resources to maintain an in-house IT staff.

Cutting down significant costs for software licensing, hardware, and personnel, these services can be ideal for businesses of all sizes. They do come with a unique set of pros and cons. Here we’ll look at the main points to consider before subscribing to a new provider.


Managed cloud services are extremely scalable and can cater to the needs of small, medium to large size businesses. Businesses have the ability to easily scale up capacity for increased usage.

Managed cloud services are easy to access, thanks to the versatility that the cloud offers. As a result, this is ideal for those who work with outside clients and need the ability to access apps and documents in a quick, efficient manner.

When leaving IT requirements in the hands of trusted professionals, like managed services from Syntax the business can benefit from various additional services from the vendor. These services may include hosting, backup and recovery, troubleshooting, and regular updates.


The initial implementation costs of managed cloud services can be somewhat expensive. This can sway decision-makers working with a tight budget. However, it's more than possible to implement these types of services without spending a fortune.

In the past, cloud services were regarded as less secure than dedicated hosting. However, the cloud has matured to the point where data loss is practically a thing of the past. While these cons do exist, they usually don't interfere and are no reason to avoid managed cloud services altogether.

Depending on the type of managed services agreed upon, deployment can be a significant challenge. This can entail taking on the implementation for all users, defining customized policies and navigating through the portal on your own. Managed services support may include maintenance of the application and server, but perhaps not assistance features and functionality.
With the right service provider, and a proper implementation strategy put in place before transitioning to the cloud, a business can significantly help improve employee productivity and enhance the overall management of the IT infrastructure, improving security, control ling costs, and complying with regulations.

BIOS Update on Laptop

My students asked me today whether his laptop is the same as mine. I replied him with my model and he answered that he had the same model with mine, except that his laptop is in black, while i'm in white color.

So i asked him again about performance problem when using any USB devices. He mentioned that he had that problem in the past and it's now fixed after updating the BIOS to the latest one. He also mentioned about the utility provided by the vendor to easily flash the BIOS by downloading the new ROM and start the application from BIOS screen. At first, i doubted that this application will work, since usually they works only with Windows, and i have wiped my pre-installed Windows 7 on this laptop and fully replace it with Slackware Linux.

I got a new idea after looking his demonstration about the tool. Surprisingly, it can detect the flash drive, so all i need to do is put the new ROM into the flash drive and start the utility and find the correct drive and it will detect it. I tried and it WORKS!!! I can finally update my BIOS to the latest version available from my vendor.

I haven't tested the new performance yet, but i can do so easily. Just by copying files from flash drive to hard drive or vice versa via Dolphin, i can measure the performance with the USB-based devices. Let's hope this update can fix my problem with USB devices.

Rebooting Itself

My Nokia E71 phone is starting to perform a self-reboot suddenly. I think it's caused by some malfunction on one of it's subsystem or there's a chance that a malware might infect the phone or something. It's not really a big deal, but for someone who knows about security, this is something that doesn't impress me at all.

The phone is about four years old, but it's still working fine and i had no major problem with it. The last problem that i experienced was the battery leak and i have replaced the battery last month and it's now working normally again. Usually this kind of problem can be sorted out by upgrading to the latest firmware, but right now, i'm not in the mood of upgrading since it doesn't have any automatic backup process, so users have to backup and restore the data manually.

With the upcoming of iPad 3, i really wanted to buy it, but if the phone is getting buggier, i might have to buy another phone because having a phone is definitely more important than having another iPad (i already have iPad 1).

LibreOffice 3.5.0 is Out

LibreOffice 3.5.0 is now officially out after it has been announced by The Document Foundation. It has a codename of "the best free office suite ever" after LinuxQuestions Forum announced the pool result that mentioned LibreOffice won the Office Suite of The Year.

This new major release is a culmination of 16 months from more than 80 developers around the world and fixed a lot of bugs along with implementing new features such as:
- a new built-in Grammar checker for English and several other languages
- improved typographical features, for professional looking documents
- an interactive word count window, which updates in real time
- a new header, footer and page break user interface
Impress / Draw
- an improved importer of custom shapes and Smart Art from PPT/PPTX
- a feature for embedding multimedia/colour palettes into ODF documents

- new Calc functions conforming to the ODF OpenFormula specifications
- better performances when importing files from other office suites
- multiple selections in autofilter
- unlimited number of rules for conditional formatting
- a new integrated PostgreSQL native driver

One of the new features that i like most is the old feature that has been enabled again: online update checking which tells us about new version available. Unfortunately, LibreOffice is not yet designed to have delta updates just like Firefox.

Here's the infographics about LibreOffice 3.5.0 release:

Quick Release

Mozilla has issued a quick release on Firefox, Thunderbird, and Seamonkey to fix a single critical security hole to the users. You can get the update by running auto update on your browser or the updated packages from your Linux vendors. The size of the update is very small since it only contains a single fix.

This bug was reported by Andrew McCreight, Olli Pettay and it was given a CVE ID of CVE-2012-0452

Becoming A Renegade Millionaire In A Recession

So many people think badly about advertisement but they do not realize that most of their activities were activated by advertisement. From going to the cinema to buying their favorite cookies or snacks.

The idea behind advertising is already so old; it probably exists since the Roman Empire, which was a while ago.

Campaigning and advertising is to engage people to talk about the product. Not to sell it. If it is possible to make you talk about that product, service or that event, the buzz is being created not about the advertisement or that campaign, the buzz is created by the people talking about it and using their imagination and fantasy whether to use it or not.

This is precisely what Dan Kennedy is teaching in his highly anticipated Renegade Millionaire (Recession Made, that is) launch.
A product of service is not for everyone, only for that select group of people that could use that product or service to make their lives easier and more independent from the hassle of doing whatever that product or service was solving themselves.

Dan Kennedy from GKIC is probably the most famous of using different marketing methods in order to make people buy or sell things that they wouldn´t buy or sell in the first place just because he knows exactly how people behave and think. If you could predict how people would behave or act when you would launch a product you could potentially make everyone dance according to your tune.

So the time spent on planning your marketing techniques is most likely the best investment, if not the most valuable investment ever.

The possibility to be able to convince your target audience to act on something your need them to act on and not be the one telling them in person is most likely the most powerful talent one could possess. If you look at how elections are won, or how bestselling books are sold or how movies turn in to blockbusters, it all comes down on how to catch the attention of the audience and making sure that you understand who is target buyer.
Elections are not being targeted to people younger than 18. Bestselling books, depending on genre, make advertisements towards their public´s age. Movies are also targeted to audience depending age. And there are many more examples like this.

Looking in to your house, identifying the products that you have bought that are also available through commercials also gives you a good idea on how far marketing goes to know exactly what you want and what you need. This is why great websites can be fully focused to only one particular item and target only one particular audience, based on how you search.
There are so many people that are on the internet, that it is obvious companies want to know what you are doing on the internet and what you interests are on the internet, because most likely it was triggered by something in your neighborhood that would require something that companies sell.

The difference is now that companies have better knowledge about your behavior and they can create a solution that fits your needs better than before. Therefore increasing the chance to sell you something that you deem necessary for that particular moment or activity that you are aiming to do.
The beauty of Internet is that marketing can be as specific as can be, basically because platforms are nowadays so sophisticated it can even know when you are asleep.

And even when you are sleeping the advertisement companies already know what you are thinking of doing when you wake up so they know exactly what you want for breakfast, and what you need in order to activate yourself to do sports, and the list goes on and on.

Need a Job? Learn Linux!

Finding a job is not that easy, since right now, the world has become more flat, just like what Friedman said in his book, The World is Flat. In order to get a good job, you must have additional skills beyond your basic skills. Knowing about Linux does offer you advantage compared to others who just know about Windows.

Here's an interesting infographic from LinuxFoundation that might inspires you to learn Linux

Adding Third Party Application

I have activated two steps verification on my GMail and soon after that, i couldn't access my GMail account through my phone. I just realized that some third party applications hasn't supported this feature yet, so they need a special treatment.

GMail provides application spesific password which can be generated by going to your Google Profile and pick the two steps verification and go to the bottom of the page. Please give a name to the new device or application that you want to be connected to your GMail and it will generate OTP (one time password) that you should enter on your device/application. After re-authenticating, everything works normally again.

I hope this helps for those who have activated two steps verifications. It's a little bit uncomfortable at first, but when you get used to it, you will get the security benefit out of it.

Canonical Stop Funding Kubuntu

Canonical has decided to drop funding support to Kubuntu after seven years without making a significant (financial) progress compared to Ubuntu. This message was discussed on Ubuntu mailing list and it was announced by Jonathan Riddell, the lead Kubuntu developer.

This decision will take affect after the release of 12.04 (Precise Pangolin) which is two months from now. It's pure business decision, said Jonathan and he hoped that Kubuntu will keep progressing just like Ubuntu and many other Ubuntu variants.

Windows 8 Features

Windows 8 will be released this year, but before that, it's good to know most of it's feature and see if you are comfortable enough with some changes introduced on this major upgrade.

PCWorld has written Windows 8: 13 Features Worth Knowing About and it gives you a summary of what's new in Windows 8 and here they are:
  • Fast Boot Up
  • Reset and Refresh
  • Windows to Go
  • Windows Store
  • Ribbon Interface
  • WiFI Direct Support
  • NFC Support
  • Native ISO Image Support
  • Side-by-side Apps on Tablet
  • ARM Processor Support
  • Windows Live Sky Drive Integration
  • Hyper-V
  • Revamped Task Manager
I think the biggest improvement is the WiFI Direct Interface which lets your device connect to other devices without using any Hotspot. It's like a P2P connection and it's similar to Apple's AirDrop

Here's a video from YouTube showing you the capabilities of WiFI Direct:

Another improvement that is worth is reset/refresh features which lets you Reset (go back to default install, lose all data and apps) and Refresh (return all settings to their default for faster and more reliable operation, but keep the data and apps). This simplifies users when they have problems with their computers or they want to give away their computer to someone else and clean up all the data inside the computer.

Chinese Dragon Festival

Chinese New Year has passed on, but in Jogja, the Chinese New Year has a special time because it's not celebrated during the main event, but usually one week after the big day. The reason is that on that day, most people went to their relatives to greet each other and share some joy.

This year, the Chinese Festival has been held for 7 years in a row and it is held on February 2-6. My mother hasn't been to this festival before, so she wanted to go there, so all of my family went there today and got stuck around a lot of people who went there.

There were several reason why today was so crowded. In the last two days, there was a heavy rain, so people hesitated to go there and there you go. Full of people, even though it's still nothing compared to what i have seen in Shanghai, China. Even though the road was probably 7x bigger than in Ketandan, it's full of people. It's way much crowded than in here.

Other reason is that because it's Sunday so people have a leisure time to go there with their family.

Fantasy Defence

My wife and i were addicted with Fantasy Defence, a tower defence-based game on iOS devices, developed by Korean Play Bean company. It's like Three-Kingdom, but the characters has a stunning graphics and they possess magic abilities as well.

It's price is only $0.99 so it won't cost much for all of us for this wonderful game. I hope you like this game as well once you tried to play it.

Here's the screenshot taken from AppStore:

Megaupload Alternatives

Megaupload was once the favorite place for uploaders to host their files, mostly for Asian dramas (fansubbing) because they offer a good balance between speedy and comfort. Even free users can get the files without any long delays and the speed is adequate for normal download.

After it has been taken down on January, most of the uploader tried to find the best alternative for Megaupload and some of them picked RapidShare and MediaFire. I once used RapidShare and it's really great, except for free users limitation which is way too long i guess (6 minutes of waiting time). MediaFire is better because you only have to wait for 5 seconds and you can have multiple download at the same time, something you will never have with RapidShare with free user capabilities.

LinuxMint 12 KDE Released

A new version of KDE-based LinuxMint 12 has been released by Clem and it's now on progress of mirroring to mirror sites around the world. This version is based on Ubuntu 11.10 with some improvements to bring the best experience using Mint way.

Read the announcement, release notes, and what's new for more detail about this release. I will have this ISO ready in UKDW Repository within short time in the future (32 bit version is ready and 64 bit is on progress right now).

Update (February 5): All the ISOs are now ready at UKDW Repository

Weird Bugs

Another strange thing happend on my wife's laptop. After her ethernet card disappeared from her laptop, i unplug the cable from her laptop and leave the laptop turned off.

When i turned it on today, i checked the system hardware and the Ethernet is now back and listed as one of the default hardware detected by the system. I plugged the cable and it's now connected again to the Internet. What a weird bug by Windows (or Dell as the vendor)

Ethernet Card is Gone

My wife's laptop had a serious problem right after upgrading to Firefox 10. I don't think it's related as Firefox is an application and the problem itself is hardware-related, which is the broken ethernet.

She told me that after upgrading to Firefox 10, the ethernet icon on her laptop was missing and i checked using ipconfig and it's really gone. I restarted the laptop with some hope that it might just a glitch, but unfortunately it's not. It happened some time ago, and i hope by restarting, all will be fixed, but i was wrong. It's really gone and since it's wireless chipset is also having some problems, the laptop is connectionless for now.

I will bring it to the computer store to be repaired by tomorrow and hopefully it can be fixed, since ethernet port in a laptop is not the same as in PC/desktop in which you can just simply replace the card by another one. For now, i will just ask her to simply backup all her data just in case we had to reinstall the Windows again (it hasn't been reinstalled since 2008 since there was no problem with the system).

Firefox 10 Released

It's February 1 and a new major release of Firefox has just been released. Firefox has now reached version 10. It's now available from auto-update mechanism that was built in into the product itself. If you happened to use a package from your Linux distribution, an update will come out soon enough since many packager disabled the auto update feature.

What's new on this release? According to the release notes, this version brings several new features such as:
  • CSS 3D Transforms
  • Anti-Aliasing for WebGL
  • Invisible Forward button (will be visible when you press the Back button)
  • Full Screen API
  • IndexedDB API
  • Inspect tool with content highlighting
Go get the new features and enjoy the new CSS 3D transformations (see some examples here)
