Setelah membaca beberapa artikel berikut yang ditulis oleh rekan-rekan blogger di Indonesia dan di luar negeri tentang Spam, akhirnya saya tergelitik juga untuk menulis sesuatu mengenai topik yang satu ini.

Artikel-artikel yang dimaksud adalah sebagai berikut:

Ibarat virus, worm, dan sejenisnya, spam sekarang juga telah menjadi momok bagi sebagian besar pengguna internet. Berawal dari kampanye marketing produk-produk komersial melalui pos yang kemudian beranjak merambah dunia maya yang sekarang kita sebut dengan internet. Spam melalui e-mail bisa dikatakan sudah terlalu biasa. Hampir setiap pengguna internet yang memiliki e-mail, pasti pernah menerima e-mail- e-mail yang berisikan spam, diminta atau tidak diminta. E-mail- e-mail yang demikian sering kita sebut juga dengan junk e-mails. Bisa dibayangkan betapa jengkelnya apabila suatu ketika kita membuka inbox e-mail, e-mail- e-mail yang masuk malah berasal dari pengirim yang tidak kita kenal dan kita harus menghapusnya satu per satu. Kalau satu dua e-mail masih lumayanlah, tapi bagaimana kalau e-mail yang masuk itu sampai puluhan bahkan ratusan? Wow!!! Apalagi bila di antara spam e-mail tersebut ada yang mengandung virus atau worm. Alamak, bisa pusing tujuh keliling kepala ini… ?!?

Latest Development

Just to catch up and document the latest development surrounding the Content Management System softwares I use (or ever used) at kyantonius.com, here is the list of links that may be somehow useful for you as well.

  1. PostNuke 0.750 Gold Release
  2. Mambo 4.5.1 RC4 available
  3. XOOPS 2.0.7.3 released!
  4. Land Down Under v701 is out !
  5. Movable Type 3.11 Released

As you can see, I haven’t updated my sites yet to the latest version of those softwares. Because of many things. One to mention for sure is the fact that I don’t have enough time to do such thing at the moment. Upgrading usually takes much time than you expected. If something goes wrong, it will hurt you as you have to re-do all work you’ve done. In the worst scenario, you are going to lose everything. So, ’till I’m ready for that, I will keep my sites untouched. Hands off!! ūüôā

Upgrading to MT 3.01 Free Edition

In opposition to what had been stated before, today I upgraded the MovableType software I use here to the latest version, namely version 3.01D. I still choose for the free one as I only need a weblog with an author.

After that, I also modified the navigation menu of this website. The main idea behind it, was to make my website a little bit organized and easy to navigate. I hope after implementing this modification, people can find their way and jump from one part to another part without any significant difficulties. As you can see over here and on other parts of the website, the menu was made with help of a DHTML/Javascript menu system. Thanks to OpenCube.com for providing such a good tool.
