Another year has passed

Another year has passed, and we’re all a little older Last summer felt hotter, and winter seems much colder I rack my brain for happy thoughts, to put down on my pad But lots of things that come to mind, just make me kind of sad I used to look forward to Christmas Day, But now the bills I can not pay There was a time not long ago, when life was quite a blast Now I fully understand, about “Living in the Past” We used to go to friends’ homes, football games and lunches Now we go to therapy, … Continue reading Another year has passed

My Little Angel, Kalinda

Time does fly so fast. My little angel is now growing up to a beautiful human being. I know I rarely mention about my personal matters, especially about my family on this blog. It is because I just love my family and would like to keep and protect their privacy from outside world. They deserve to live happy and peacefully.

Yesterday my wife had successfully managed to take some interesting pictures of my 11-month-old daughter. And that has tempted me to reveal a bit her pictures. This mainly has to do with a general message I would like to pass on to you. 🙂 The spirit of promoting Open Source.

It seems Kalinda is now befriending with Penguin aka Tux, the mascot of Linux. She looks really cute with that Penguin bag. :p Hopefully I could introduce her to the real Linux operating system very soon. Of course starting immediately with SLAMPP. She ought to master it as well like his daddy. Now, you should have known why I code-named SLAMPP 2.0.x with Kalinda. LOL. 🙂

Have fun and enjoy the show!

Initial Start: MWD/LWD Manufacturers and Suppliers List

Updates on October 28, 2009:
For a complete and updated list, please visit this page.


It is generally known in the oil and gas industry that the big oilfield service companies like Schlumberger, Halliburton, Baker Hughes and Weatherford are manufacturing their drilling tools by themselves, including MWD/LWD tools. They also conduct their own research and development to find best methods in producing and running the tools. The competition among them is so frightening. So much so, that they won’t allow others to possess their tools by any means.

So now comes a question,

“If I want to start a new (independent) Directional Drilling/MWD/LWD service company, where can I purchase MWD/LWD tools and its spare parts if the big guys won’t allow me to do that ?”

This was the main reason which triggered me to list MWD/LWD manufactures and suppliers in this world. To help people like you who want to start a business in this industry.

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. … Continue reading Informasi Bencana Alam
