MWD/LWD Research Project

I just wanted to help a fellow with his research project. If you could assist him, that would be much appreciated. Please see his message below.

We are working on a MWD/LWD research project and looking for different MWD operating systems that are on the market and the options they have with Resistivity and other logging tools. What tools are available and what are their features? Are they compatible with others?

Any feedback is welcome, like links to companies which sell and/or service tools, standalone tools, etc.

Thank you.

Please contact Jeroen Niesink if you can be of any help. Or, you can just leave your feedback here through comment form. Thanks!

P.S. Jeroen, if you already have all information you need, can you share or make the research report available to your fellows? ๐Ÿ™‚

SLAMPP on UTOSC 2009

Utah Open Source Conference 2009I just received an information from my friend, Clint Tinsley. He is going to host a Linux Home Server BoF at Utah Open Source Conference 2009 on October 8, 2009, at Miller Campus of the Salt Lake Community College, Sandy, Utah. He will demonstrate SLAMPP 2.0.1 to get the conversation started. It is surely a good news for me and I really appreciate Clint’s work there. Sadly, I can not attend that event in person due to my personal situation right now. I hope Clint’s BoF will be running well and people could take something useful from there. Wish you good luck, friend!

Please come to Utah Open Source Conference 2009 if you can. ๐Ÿ™‚

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!).

Pemilu 2009

Terlepas dari pro dan kontra yang terjadi belakangan ini tentang pelaksanaan Pemilu 2009, mari bersama-sama kita sukseskan ajang demokrasi terbesar di negara kita pada hari ini. Suara anda akan menentukan masa depan bangsa Indonesia untuk lima tahun ke depan. Oleh karenanya, pilihlah caleg/partai politik yang sesuai dengan hati nurani anda. Please say no to money politics and opportunism.

Mohon diingat, Bapak-bapak dan Ibu-ibu yang nanti terpilih dan menjadi anggota DPRD/DPR/DPD, jangan lupa dengan janji-janji anda selama kampanye. Rakyat kita membutuhkan aksi dan bukti nyata dari anda semua. No bullshit, please!

Begitu pula sekiranya Bapak-bapak dan Ibu-ibu oleh karena satu dan lain hal tidak terpilih dalam Pemilu ini, jangan lupa untuk menyiapkan mental yang kuat dan bersikap sportif. Siap menang harus juga siap kalah dengan segala konsekuensinya. Harta boleh habis, massa pendukung boleh pergi, tapi jangan sampai stres/depresi berat, jangan sampai bunuh diri atau bunuh orang, jangan sampai jadi orang gila, jangan sampai menelantarkan keluarga, dan jangan sampai jadi beban/meresahkan masyarakat dengan ulah anda yang lainnya. OK Bapak-bapak dan Ibu-ibu?

Let us hope, the best candidates and parties shall be elected! Good luck! ๐Ÿ™‚

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? ๐Ÿ™‚ 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.

Interesting Links

Today I would like to share two links which I think might be useful for all of us.

  • Do you suffer from destination addiction? – Another nice article from Frugal Dad which provides an unique insight on contentment. When enough is actually enough and satisfies us?
  • KPK: Indonesia Memanggil Pakar (Indonesian) – KPK or, in English, The Corruption Eradication Commission (CEC) is now calling all Indonesian experts all over the world to join their force in battling the corruption in Indonesia. Please visit the provided link to get more information about this. (Via a friend’s tip)

Interesting Links

I have collected some interesting links I found on the Net with various topics. I hope they could inspire you.

  • Hardening the Linux desktop – Please login first to get the article in PDF. This tutorial was written for the Linux beginners. It shows you how to make your Linux desktop secure and free from virus/malware attacks. Although it was meant for the desktop, this tutorial put basics for hardening the Linux server. A recommended reading material for Linux users. (via Linux.com)
  • Lazy Linux: 11 secrets for lazy cluster admins – Do you have Linux clusters running on your organization? Don’t waste your valuable time by learning those secrets to manage the clusters. (via Linux.com)
  • Reducing IT Costs with Linux – Setting aside the OS wars, Windows and Linux can be combined in any number of scenarios. (via Linux.com)
  • Apa sih DNS Awari? – Do you live in Indonesia and want to surf the internet worry free from things like pornography, etc? Try this free DNS service. Just fill this IP address 203.34.118.10 in your DNS settings of your PC or network. However, it seems it still relies on the OpenDNS servers. OR, you can set up your own machine by following this simple and quick tutorial. Sorry guys, all articles are in Indonesian only.
  • WordPress Legacy – Did you ever notice that when you visited a website, you got “This is an Attack Site!โ€ warning on your Firefox browser provided by Google? That message is warning you that Google has found something unusual and marks that website as a dangerous place to visit. How could this happen anyway? It seems that someone out there has successfully inserted or put malicious and often dangerous links or applications on someone’s else website for their own profits. However, the infected sites will behave normally until Firefox displays the warning. Moreover, believe it or not, some recent studies said that most of those websites use the outdated WordPress which surely contains many security problems. So, it is wisely, strongly recommended to upgrade your WP website right away to the latest release to avoid this ridiculous thing. I think everyone would agree with this solution. Now, what should you do if you don’t have enough time or energy to keep up with all the WP releases? You know the fact, staying with the old one would harm you badly, but continuously upgrading to the new one would be costly regarding time etc. But don’t you worry, stop those worries by using this WordPress Legacy 2.0 Branch. It will provide security and critical fixes until 2010 (first release in 2005). Be happy and productive! (via Harry Sufehmi)
    • Important note: You should apply the same action for any CMS you use on your website. This thing can happen to everyone. Personally I would suggest you a simple rule. Always use the stable version, in favor of legacy one if any, just like what WordPress has done. Never put the testing/unstable version onto production site, unless you know what you are doing.
  • Have You Ever Been Embarrassed To Be Frugal? – I don’t. Do you? ๐Ÿ˜‰
  • Tips for working from home – In case you are working at home. Nice tips! (via Frugal Dad)
  • 34 reminders to help you find your way
  • Money is 100 percent emotional – I am afraid what this guy wrote is 100% true. It hits directly to what we feel about money. (via Frugal Dad)

Rute Transportasi Umum Jakarta?

Bagi para pengguna transportasi umum di Jakarta seperti saya, aplikasi route planner yang terpercaya menjadi satu kebutuhan yang mutlak. Kenapa tidak? Minimnya informasi rute sebuah trayek seringkali menyebabkan kerugian pada calon penumpang. Sebut saja beberapa contoh kerugian yang mungkin dialami seperti: tersesat, diperdaya orang dengan rute yang salah sehingga rugi waktu/tenaga/pikiran/biaya, dan lain sebagainya. Alangkah indahnya jika ada aplikasi yang dapat mengantarkan kita dari pintu ke pintu, ke tempat tujuan kita, dengan cepat dan efisien. Sayangnya, sampai saat ini saya belum menemukan aplikasi yang dimaksud. Mungkin ada teman-teman yang tahu tentang keberadaan aplikasi tersebut dan sudi berbagi dengan saya dan yang lainnya?

Terima kasih. ๐Ÿ™‚

Update @ 5pm:

Salah satu contoh aplikasi yang dimaksud dapat dilihat di sini. Itu adalah layanan terpadu dari pengelola transportasi umum di Belanda. Mudah-mudahan kita di Indonesia juga bisa menikmati layanan yang sama suatu saat nanti.

Headhunter II

Menyambung tulisan saya terdahulu tentang Headhunter, hari ini saya menemukan sebuah blog bagus milik seorang headhunter di Indonesia. Mungkin ini adalah blog headhunter Indonesia pertama yang saya temukan di Internet. ๐Ÿ™‚

Di blog tersebut terdapat banyak tulisan yang bisa menginspirasi dan memotivasi anda yang sedang mencari pekerjaan baru atau ketika seorang headhunter mencoba mendekati anda. Walaupun beliau saat ini berkecimpung di sektor energi dan konstruksi, tulisan-tulisan yang anda temukan di sana sifatnya umum, sehingga dapat dibaca oleh semua kalangan. Tertarik untuk mengeksplorasi lebih jauh? Silakan kunjungi blog Bapak Haryo ini. (Tips: Anjar Priandoyo)
