Kapan Agloco Mulai Bagi-Bagi Uang?

Hari ini gw dikirimi surat dari Agloco bahwa Viewbar sudah bisa didownload. Bagi yang belum tahu, Agloco adalah sebuah perusahaan (yang masih bayi) yang punya konsep menakjubkan dalam membuat uang d internet. Hanya dengan menggunakan Viewbar (yang akan memperlihatkan iklan) selagi surfing internet, kita bisa memperoleh uang!

Viewbar yang baru gw coba lumayan bagus. Cuma sayangnya iklan-iklannya belum keluar. Menurut mereka sih klien-klien iklan mereka belum begitu siap dalam menyajikan iklan. Asik juga sih kalau dengan browsing biasa bisa mendapatkan uang :)

Yang jadi masalah adalah uang yang didapat itu tidak akan diberikan sampai Agloco mendapat keuntungan (sudah mulai balik modal). Kapan itu terjadi? Gak tau… Selain itu, katanya uang yang didapat sebisa mungkin akan dibagikan dalam bentuk share (saham). Menarik juga sih, tetapi bisa dibayangkan deh sulitnya menarik uang tunai dari Agloco. Harus jual saham dulu. Read more »

The Domain Name Changed Once Again!

The blog has moved to leon.info.tm. I thought the new name is easier to remember and pretty short.

The very reason about using this great free subdomain from freedns.afraid.org Free DNS service is the kindness (whoa!) of the owner, Joshua Anderson. The service actually prevented Google to access almost every site (to prevent SEO abuse and spam), and he let this particular domain name to be accessed by Google. I personally can’t live a site without Google :p Thanks again!

The old domain name has been configured to redirect users to this domain so there won’t be any dead links for now, but for those (few) who have linked to leonix.uni.cc should update their links.

Now that I have this domain name permanently, I will actually promote the website…

freedns.afraid.org Subdomains Don't Work for Google!

I like the service at freedns.afraid.org. It provides free nameserver and subdomain management. But being able to have some free subdomains with full DNS control is what makes freedns.afraid.org the best! There are loads of domains you can have as the superdomain of your subdomain (here comes the full list).

But what I really, really hate about the service right now is that it doesn’t really work for some (few) clients. Why? No idea. And which client that I need to cater very much, yet unable to resolve my free subdomain name? Google. Yup, that Google.

I don’t care if one or two or even ten people in some distant nation cannot access my site, but if Google cannot, a whole lot of traffic source will be missing. And how do I know that Google cannot access my site? Check with its own tools. It tells me “HTTP Error: Domain Name Not Found”. Read more »

LyX: Alternatif Word untuk Dokumen Besar!

LyX adalah sebuah program pemroses kata (word processor) layaknya Microsoft Word dan OpenOffice.org Writer. Tetapi LyX unik, dimana pengguna hanya berkonsentrasi pada isi, bukan pada format, seperti yang dikatakan dalam intro-nya:

LyX is a program that provides a modern approach to writing documents with a computer by using a markup language paradigm, an approach that breaks with the obsolete tradition of the “typewriter concept”. It is designed for authors who want professional output quickly with a minimum of effort without becoming specialists in typesetting. The job of typesetting is done mostly by the computer, not the author; with LyX, the author can concentrate on the contents of her writing.

Contohnya, dalam LyX kita tidak bisa mengetik dua spasi secara berurutan, dua baris baru secara berurutan, atau memiliki baris yang kosong! Karena semua pengaturan tentang spacing antar paragraf, antar bagian dst sudah dibuat secara otomatis. Read more »

Salvation for Textile Drupal Module!

The last version of PHP seems to break the current Textile module for Drupal. I also experienced the bug – OLs and LIs suddenly doesn’t work as expected, and later I also discovered that one of my page also suffer from the blank page bug . Dreamhost issue (also this one which is basically the same) and the bug I experienced, apparently have the same root of evil: the core Textile module.

I don’t really think that TextilePHP, the code base this module is using is maintained anymore. Instead, the Textile implementation of Treshold State seems to be much better (if it is maintained at all). I tweaked around a bit to integrate it to textile.module (throwing out the original TextilePHP), tested it, and boom – bugs went nowhere! Hooray! Read more »

BugMeNot: Share Your Password (For Real!)

BugMeNot is dedicated for sharing website logins. Basically anyone can submit their own user account of a particular website and password, and let others use it.

I found it very useful sometimes! For example, there are lots of websites that limits theirs features just because you are not logged in. And for signing up (registering), sometimes you need to give out your e-mail address, personal information etc. which is very time consuming (and not fun at all!). Not to mention sites that force you to pay before registering!

Their database of passwords is decent IMO, I found an account I need for a website (Rootkit) and the password works (despite the votes at BugMeNot which marks near 20% login failure). Everybody can contribute to the database! Just make sure you are not bugged by people using your passwords.
