Interesting Links

In the last few months I’ve gathered some links that may trigger your interest. Most of them are IT and FOSS related and only one is from Oil and Gas sector. Yes, it is sometimes hard to share Oil and Gas resources because of the closed and competitive nature of the business and copyrights/trademarks or other Intellectual Property Rights issues. And I don’t want to get in trouble by doing that for sure. :) I hope you will get some benefits from the following links.

Informasi Bencana Alam

Mungkin analisa dalam buku ini ada benarnya juga, Indonesia, the Remnants of Sunken Atlantis.

Indonesia yang kita cintai ini adalah sebuah negeri yang indah, kaya raya dengan sumber daya alamnya dan memiliki potensi sumber daya manusia yang luar biasa. Namun terlepas dari itu semua, Indonesia juga merupakan negeri yang rawan bencana alam. Terletak di pertemuan dua gugusan pegunungan api aktif dunia, banyaknya patahan yang terdapat di wilayah nusantara, dikelilingi banyak lautan dan dua samudera, perubahan iklim yang ekstrim akibat pemanasan global cukup membuat masyarakat dan pemerintaj Indonesia kewalahan dalam menghadapi bencana alam yang datang silih berganti beberapa waktu belakangan ini. Apakah bencana alam ini terjadi karena kesalahan kita, manusia, yang kurang menghargai alam dan sesamanya? Wallahu A’lam. Yang jelas ini adalah Sunatullah, hukum alam dan takdir Allah, Tuhan Yang Maha Kuasa.

Lalu apa yang dapat kita lakukan menghadapi ini semua? Diam begitu saja tanpa berbuat apa-apa? Pasrah pada takdir yang datang? Atau, bersikap dan bertindak seperti yang terdapat dalam tulisan ini? Intinya kita harus mempersiapkan diri, siaga/waspada, tanggap dan peduli dengan prioritas meminimalisir kerugian harta benda, korban jiwa dan dampak psikologis/trauma. Mudah-mudahan semangat gerakan Indonesia Bersatu juga mencakup bidang ini. :)

Karena bencana alam tidak pernah dapat diprediksi kapan datangnya, jadi kita harus siap sedia setiap saat. Informasi yang cepat dan akurat adalah satu keharusan. Tentunya kita tidak harus bergantung pada satu sumber informasi. Semakin banyak sumber tentu semakin baik. Selain sumber-sumber resmi seperti Badan Meteorologi, Klimatologi dan Geofisika, Badan Nasional Penanggulangan Bencana, Data dan Informasi Bencana Indonesia dan Palang Merah Indonesia, kita juga dapat mengandalkan sejumlah inisiatif pribadi berikut:

Salut buat teman-teman yang sudah menggagas kedua situs di atas. Mudah-mudahan semangatnya dapat diikuti oleh teman-teman yang lain dalam bentuk kreasi dan inovasi berbeda.

Saat ini masih banyak korban bencana alam baik yang baru saja terjadi di Sumatera Barat, ataupun yang sudah terjadi seperti di Tasikmalaya dan lainnya, yang belum tersentuh bantuan kita sepenuhnya. Oleh karenanya jangan sungkan-sungkan untuk mengajak keluarga, sanak kerabat, teman-teman dan tetangga sekitar untuk ikut berpartisipasi dalam penggalangan dana/bantuan. Kita tidak dapat membayangkan bila hal serupa terjadi pada kita. Inilah saatnya kita tunjukkan semangat kebersamaan dan kepedulian terhadap sesama.

SLAMPP 2.0 on Linux Magazine

Linux Magazine Cover #107Today I am very pleased to let you know that SLAMPP 2.0 will be published on the Linux Magazine Issue #107, October 2009. Actually I already got this good news two weeks ago from Hans-Jorg, the product manager of that magazine. But, just to be in the safe side, I have postponed the announcement until today.

Interesting Links

Today I found two new interesting links. It is hoped it would bring something useful for you.

  • Low End Box – Do you ever consider to having your own VPS account, but you are not willing to pay more or just want to play around with something? Perhaps this website could help you out in finding one. It lists web hosting companies which offer VPS promotions.
  • Softaculous – A very good alternative of Fantastico, an auto/instant software installer in CPanel and Direct Admin. It is worth it to try.

Radio PPI Dunia

Sebagai seorang mahasiswa yang pernah berkecimpung di Perhimpunan Pelajar Indonesia (PPI) di luar negeri, rasanya tidaklah berlebihan jika saya ikut mempromosikan media komunikasi baru yang dapat mempersatukan seluruh PPI di dunia ini. Mudah-mudahan dengan adanya media ini dapat memperkuat persatuan dan kesatuan pelajar/mahasiswa Indonesia di mana pun mereka berada.

Silakan kunjungi situs Radio PPI Dunia dan dengarkanlah suara teman-teman anda dari seluruh dunia.

Selamat menikmati (dan bernostalgia!).

Please Fix Your Random Quotation Link

I have noticed that many people still use the old obsolete link for Random Hadith Quotation, the free service provided by this website. As result I often found many error reports regarding this. So to avoid any inconvenience in the future, hereby I would like to encourage you to fix the old link.

http://kyantonius.com/hadith/quotation.php

with this link,

More information can be found on the Random Hadith Quotation page.

Thank you for your attention and cooperation. I hope you enjoy using this service.

Running Your Own Random Quotation

Perhaps you ever tried the Random Hadith Quotation, the free service I provide through this website, and you are kind of interested to run it by yourself so that you can have full control on the content. Since I started it in October 2004, I received so many e-mails asking whether the scripts is available for public or the content can be edited or changing the way it looks, etc. Hopefully all the questions will be answered through this entry. Now, I would like to share with you the base script I use for that service.

Basically I am using the existing the script available on the net and customize it in the way I want. You can, of course, make your own script if you want to. But, I assume, you all will agree with me. Why reinventing the wheel, if the solution is already there, ready to use. What really matters me (and us) is the idea behind the service. It is certainly priceless and worth more than just a script. Right? In case you think that nobody would pay intention to what you do with the script. Believe me! I started the Random Hadith Quotation service with single user which is me. No expectation at all at that time. As time goes by, the service began to gain its popularity, published in many forums or websites and now has many active users. As long as you provide something which may be useful for someone else, soon or late, it is going to be successful project.

OK, without further due, please download the base script here, provided by Starsol Scripts. After downloading it, read and follow the installation instructions and your random quotation is set up. The usage is beyond the sky. Do whatever you want and please share it to others.

HP 3G Termurah

Saat ini saya sedang membutuhkan sebuah HP 3G yang murah. Ada yang bisa memberikan rekomendasi? HP tersebut akan saya gunakan untuk eksperimen kecil-kecilan di rumah.

Oh ya, sekedar tambahan informasi di akhir pekan. Beberapa saat yang lalu saya menemukan sebuah layanan e-mail berbasiskan web yang sangat menarik. Apa yang ditawarkan oleh layanan tersebut mungkin belum kita temui di Gmail, Yahoo Mail, dan sejenisnya. Layanan apakah itu? :) Layanan yang dimaksud adalah layanan menjadwal pengiriman e-mail. Saya sendiri sudah mencobanya dan cukup puas dengan layanan yang diberikan. Baiklah, silakan saja eksplorasi langsung sendiri di sini, LetterMeLater.com.

Terima kasih.
