I plugged the cable which connects my laptop to the Internet. After few minutes, a new notifications comes up to update my IE installation to the latest version, IE 8. This update come along with MS Office 2007 Service Pack 2, which is a cumulative updates since SP 1 being released. It has quite a big size, around 290 MB, so get prepared . You also have to restart after the installation is finished, something that never happened before.
Next, i installed IE 8 which i have downloaded before and it asked me again to restart . It's wasting my time too much. Finally, after it booted up again, it loads the IE 8. In general, there hasn't been much changes in IE 8. But, when you look inside the application, many things have changed, for example better support for Web application spesification, such as CSS, HTML, XHTML, and many more. Looks like Microsoft has done some of their homework since IE 7 and so far, they are pushing it very nicely, even though i have to admit that Firefox will still be my favorite browser

What happened if someone sent you a message on your secondary account and it was downloaded (using POP3) into your main account? Would you be able to reply as the original recipient (using your secondary account's domain) ? The answer is YES. When you add the account, there's an option to specify whether you want to be able to reply the message using the same recipient or use a single identity for all account.
Recently, i joined SlackBasics translation project which are now integrated in Google Code. The current administrator of SlackBasics (Marco) has given me a new email account @slackbasics.org. It uses Google Apps to host the email account using GMail infrastructure.
I already have GMail account, so why would i have to logged in to two accounts when i can manage all of them in one single account? This is why i add my @slackbasics account into my primary GMail account and from there, i can read and send any email that goes through my @slackbasics.org account without having to logged in to the account
For those who are curious on how to do that, check the GMail settings and look on Accounts tab. Look on Get mail from other accounts. You can add more than one account (i don't know the limitations on the accounts) and after you setup the account, you can modify the Send mail as part to change how will you reply/send new messages between those two accounts. You can change the settings at compose/reply window though, so i guess it's not too strict that you have to define it first.

I'm wondering, why wouldn't Canonical shippped Ubuntu 9.04 with 2.6.29 and they were going out with 2.6.28 even though 2.6.29 has been out for some time and the kernel developers has released their first update, 184.108.40.206.
Does the reason related to the default logo for 2.6.29 which used Tuz instead of the original Tux? Because Ubuntu will last for about 18 months, meaning that since April 2009 until October 2010, it will show Tuz instead of Tux and people who used Ubuntu will not see other than Tuz until 9.10 is released or they compiled their own kernel.
IMHO, the time frame for testing 2.6.29 is enough to include it on 9.04 release schedule, but in the end, it's up to the developers

You should also see the release notes, including all the erratas for Ubuntu 9.04 here (just in case you had same problem listed on that page).

Right now, they have prepared the preview version of MySQL 5.4 which (sadly) only available for Solaris and Linux 64 bit only. Here's an article from MySQL which should give you a hint what will MySQL 5.4 look like in context of performance improvements and scalability.

Like always, Ubuntu tried to give something big to their users. In this version, there are several big changes, including the inclusion of OpenOffice.org 3, upgraded from 2.4 in the last version, new integrated notification system, new icons and artwork, faster boot speed, enhanced application suite and more visual appeal, and many more. More about Ubuntu's feature will be available when the release notes are ready.
I guess on weekend there will be lots of people are downloading Ubuntu because the ISOs will be ready on public local mirrors which are faster than downloading from upstream mirrors. Start preserving your bandwidth and prepare to upgrade to Ubuntu 9.04. I'm sticking with Slackware

The message that they got looks like this:
Your IP aa.bb.cc.dd has been blocked because it is blacklisted. For details please see http://www.spamhaus.org/query/bl?ip=aa.bb.cc.dd
What is SpamHaus anyway? It's a volunteer effort founded by Steve Linford in 1998 to track e-mail spammers and spam-related activity (taken from Wikipedia). On their operation, they are using four services, which are DNS Blocklists (DNSBLs), Spamhaus Block List (SBL), Exploits Block List (XBL), and the Policy Block List (PBL).
If your IP is blocked by the board, it's not because we hate you guys, but it's because the phpBB engine used SpamHaus to verify every IP address that were used to post or register to the board before it can be process the requests. If your IP are listed on the blacklist, the board will reject your request and asked you to solve the problem before you retry.
My suggestion is to go to link displayed by the board (which will redirect you to SpamHaus website) and see in which category are your IP in (SBL, PBL, or XBL). You can ask them to remove your IP from their blacklist (take a look on the bottom of the page after you click one of the link given by the SpamHaus), but it's also good idea to scan your network for spyware or any other malicious program which uses your network to send spam messages to other people. If they caught your IP again in the future, it will be harder to delist your IP from their list.
Please note that if you use shared IPs, then there might be a big chance that the root cause was caused by other users who used the same ISP with you and their action caused the IP is blocked by the SpamHaus. So you should also report this to your ISP and asked them to check it (and hoping they would do that ).
I hope this post will help those who had problems with Indonesian Linux Forum and SpamHaus.

Why does Oracle interested in Sun? Because most of Oracle's product are based on Java, so by owning Sun, which developed Java, they can invest more money to make it more compatible and robust for their own products. Besides Java, one of the product that might be interesting for Oracle is Solaris. We might see more Solaris running Oracle in the future

We all knows that servers must be operational 24/7, meaning it SHOULD NOT stop working for any reasons. The common problem is about hardware malfunctioning or electricity problem. Google solved the second problem by attaching 12V battery to the supply power and it will work as an UPS.
You can look the screenshot of the images here and here.
What do you think? It is a real article or is it still an April Fool? The design was demonstrated at Google Data Center Efficiency Summit, so i guess it's still real.

Next thing is birthday reminders and other additional entries, such as emails because it would ease me to contact them if i have those information on my phone as well.
This post also marked my 2000 posts since my first post in August 2004. It took me around five years to get 2000 posts, but i have reached this milestone. My next milestone will be 3000 posts

So the problem lies during the upgrade. After the phone restarted, i couldn't see my firmware version along with other information with special number inputted on the phone (for example *#06# to see the phone's IMEI or *#0000# to see phone's firmware version). But now everything is working normally and i hope nothing will happened in the future

I tried one of the vLabs on Security topic and some of the materials are taken from EC-Council's CEH and CHFI course . The cool thing about vLabs is that it provides you with some kind of special environment where you can test or conduct series of action without having to install anything on your system, except for browser and probably flash player. It's kinda virtual environment on your desktop browser.
It's one of the neat feature by ACM.

Right now, the process is still ongoing (installing) and i'm not sure when will it be finished as it has to be installed onto the mobile phone itself.
The other thing is that i forgot to backup my settings, so all of my settings are gone and i probably would have to set it again after the installation is finished later on

You can use single or multiple cameras on your system, including a commercial CCTV devices. It is suitable for use as a DIY (Do It Yourself) home video security system and for commercial or professional video security and surveillance. It can also be integrated into a home automation system via X.10 or other protocols.
I think i will try this with my webcam and see if it works.

Windows version shipped all the necessary libraries into the package, thus larger in size and everytime a single module is updated (due to security fixes or any other problems), it has to be rebuilt and make a new package, thus requiring users to install the new version by removing the old one first (the safe way).
This condition does not applies to Linux which can utilize dynamic linking so that the program will search for the available libraries installed on the system. So you only need to upgrade your existing libraries and the PHP package can link to the new one (if available). In the worst case, you can just use the old configuration parameters and apply it to the source and recompile it so that it founds the new version and linked them in. No need to uninstall the old one

I'm staying with 2.6.28.x kernel for now as NVidia hasn't released a new update for their legacy drivers, so i wouldn't haste to upgrade my kernel stock as well. Let's just wait for some time before they release a new version of their legacy drivers.

I'm also taking the chance to take my new WD Passport portable HD which i have bought few weeks ago. It was sent to my uncle in US and then my cousion who went there brought it back to Indonesia and his mother brought it back to Semarang (complicated huh?). Why would i bought it from the US site? (i choose Dell at that time). Because it's way cheaper then i bought it in Indonesia.
Besides WD Passport, i also took my new phone, E71, which i bought also from my cousin who brought me the WD. It's a very cool phone, but i haven't learned all the new features, because it has LOTS of new features which i never used before. My current phone has been accompanying me for the last six years. It's still in the good shape with very little scratch on the casing, but i think it's time to move along and finally i decided to pick E71 after Telkomsel announced the crazy prize for IPhone 3G.
Oh well, my emails are waiting to be replied, so i'll just stopped for now

The price will vary. It will be free for iPhone and $9.95 for iPod touch. It will be compatible with 1G iPod touch, 2G iPod touch, iPhone, and 3G iPhone even though you may not get all the features if you are using 1G iPod.
Check this forum for more information about the features

The Release Notes will gives you detailed changes on this version, while this page will give you more readable documentation about new features in OOo 3.1.0.
My estimation about the final release is in the next 1-2 months unless something big happened during development cycle.
I still got a lot of work to do next week, so i must try to finish all the job i can finish this week, while i'm having quite a long holidays (Wednesday until Sunday). For now, most of my assignments has been evaluated, so i guess only material preparations that should be done this week
Have fun with it

- Search your iPhone
- Cut, copy, and paste
- Send photos, contacts, audio files, and location via MMS*
- Read and compose email and text messages in landscape
Anyways, it's still a speculation and there hasn't been any evidence that this claim is perfectly right. The only thing you can do right now is wait and enjoy your IPhone 3G for now

Due to this constraints, i haven't upgraded my Liferea installation and i'm still at 1.5.14 even though the latest development version is now 1.5.15 and they are working on 1.5.16.
The good news is that Liferea 1.6 will come out shortly, which means the end of development cycle for 1.5.x version is coming to an end. Let's just hope they will have a good release on 1.6.x replacing the stable version 1.4.x.

In general, most fixes are focused on KHTML, KMail, and KRunner, even though there are lots of things gets fixed in other components as well. This version has a new codename called Cano. It will be on your distribution repository in short.
