2008 AIDS Day

. Tuesday, December 2

Bloggers Unite
Today is World AIDS Day, and bloggers unite to spread the words concerning this issue. As me myself, a blogger, I feel like I should post my opinion regarding this.

It is a common knowledge now, that AIDS is a disease that can make it's victim turn out worse day by day. Not just because the biological effect, but also the social-impact hazard it can cause. It is well known that most of those who suffer from AIDS became isolated by their community (even their family sometimes neglect or exiled him/her).

If we try to see what cause an HIV infection, some are from "bad things" that one conducted. But the effect can spread across generations. A mother that is infected an HIV will gave birth to a new born baby, carrying the disease also. And it takes time for us to get the cure for this illness. An illness that would brought dark future for the next generation.

So let's unite and help those who raise war against AIDS. Support you local activities, or organization that put their effort to maintain the community. Stop conducting any activities that can cause more problematic issue to come arise in your family. And the most important, show your sympathy and emphaty to those who already suffer from the dissease.

If we don't start it, who will? The generation next after us? I don't think so.

Yahoo Easter Egg

. Saturday, October 18

My early days of getting involved with the internet was filled with many hillarious things. One of it, was when Yahoo! screamed "" when you open the website. Well, it wouldn't be funny if the accident didn't take place in the middle of a class lol

Well, I never really realized till now. That "screaming" has gone, alright. No more "Yahooo..oo" will be heard when you open the page. Well, not automatically played, actually.

You see, the sound scheme is still there. But it seems that Yahoo! already turned it off from automatic mode. And the event that will trigger it, is by clickin on the "!" at the end of Yahoo! logo on top of the page. Here, let me show it to you;

It sure brings back the memories of my old days, how about you try it yourself.

Label Cloud for Blogger

. Wednesday, October 1

As you can see on my footer, this blog has its own label cloud! For those that familiar with WordPress, maybe tag cloud will ring the bell for you.

It's a way to indicates label/tag frequent usage. The more I assign them to my posts, the bigger they are shown. I personally think that this is much better than the normal list (with the number of the frequency next to it). Don't you agree?

WordPress user may find it easy to accomplish, since there already a built-in widget management on the administration panel. But for blogger, the story is different. I don't know why the widget isn't available on the gadget list. Don't they see how people love it? Is it because we're still in Beta?

Whatever, now if you are interested in adding this cool feature on your blog. See the simple 3 steps I've found on phy3blog

At first, I couldn't make the clouds to be distributed accross the line. It was rather sorted, just like any ordinary list (<li>) would do. Then I check my CSS, just to found out that there was a handler for footer-list. Deleted it and there it goes.

A View from the (roof)Top

. Saturday, September 27

I have always wanted to enjoy some time on a roof top. But after five months in my new place, I've just realized that I didn't see the opportunity that have been there all along.

Yes, I have forgotten about the reason I picked the building in the first place. And that reason was because we love the height (3-stories, actually) and the clear view (even if it's not 'that' beautiful). I was starting to remember about all of this, when I was alone on the second stories, listening to this song (The Cardigans Feat. Tom Jones - Burning Down the House) and some kids were playing fireworks.

I was hoping the fireworks worth to be taken pictures of it. So I picked my digital camera to took some pictures of the fireworks. While waiting for the fireworks, I did some shots on the view.

From Carry On

That's Medan over there, where the lights is much merrier.

From Carry On

That's not Tokyo Tower, it's just a BTS (or I thought so) that stood tall in the middle of the housing complex.
From Carry On

That's the street that provide access to my place, and those little tent is where the kids hang around. So, I wait at this side, for the fireworks of course.
From Carry On

I tried to do a lo-mo, but this pocket digital camer of mine seems can't handle it.

Well, the fireworks thing didn't turned out as I expected. Since all it had was just a high-pitched buzzing sound, and a bang. With no sparks, and that's enough reason for me to end my time on the roof top that night.

In case you are wondering, it's moeslem fasting months (Ramadhan) and every nights people celebrate something or one thing (I can't really tell, since I'm not fall in the group).

Bed rest-ed for days

. Tuesday, September 16

Yeah, my last so-called weekend wasn't the last time I had my work day-off. The next weekend (couple days ago) also a time for me to get some rest from work. Unfortunately, I didn't enjoy it, since I was bed-rested.

I got my periodical-illness, a time where my body screams for relieve from my routine. That means I got to stop smoking, stop working, and have some total rest; in terms of 12hours of sleeping, couple of hours being awake for meals, and then spent the rest of the day for some more sleep. Those were the days where I got nothing to do beside sleep and eat, and less shower.

Now I'm back, quite refreshed; but still with some sore throats and uncomfort nostrils. Euw..

I do have weekend

. Sunday, September 7

It's been a while that I have this in my mind - that I'll never have my own weekend. This is because I'm not an ordinary office guy, whose life-cycle is 8-5; 5-days a week (and got the last 2 days for weekend). No, I'm certainly not that kind of guy.

Building my own business, makes me works all the time (in a casual kind of way, of course). Hence, there is no such thing as weekend, since I can have my own off-time whenever there's no work to be done. Tee,hee.

But now, it's Sunday. And the timing was perfect (since yesterday), that I had my off when other people supposed to have their weekends. Hahahaha.. It sure feels great, since I can meet my friends, do things with the community bla-bla-bla.

But tomorrow is Monday, and I got to get back to work. Started from 8! I just still can't believe I'm back to an ordinary office-routine kind of thing :p

Being up-to-my-ears

. Wednesday, February 13

It's been a while since I've got the access to the internet, but I haven't been able to update this blog of mine up till now.

When my friend decided to open an internet cafe, after mine was closed due to rent has ended, I was helping him establish this new internet cafe. Took a while, not that I have so many schedule to follow, to establish the connection since this building didn't have a telephone line which was we need for the ADSL. But through it all, we did it!

Now, all of the sudden, I've been facing a long list of activities that I should handle. Well, it's a good thing for a freelance like me, having my self occupied is better than having nothing to do. But the list is getting long by day. More visit to make, more programming to do, and design to fulfill. Man, this is awesome!

As a matter of fact, I had decided that I should go to college. Just to allocate my free time during the day. But all of this ruckus make me think, will this last till my college days? Because if it will do so, I'll definitely consumed (whoaa another awesome thing is laying ahead of me).

Hey, I want to say "hi" to Lin. Finally got in touch with you :D
