I guess nobody is listening at Google. Let me say it again. Gplus (g+) is not popular in Indonesia because it is VERY SLOW to open the page. That's the first problem. It takes me a while to open and interact with my gplus page. This is Indonesia. You have to come down here to understand it. (Google reps are in Singapore and only occasionally come to Indonesia. You wouldn't know the reality.)...
Want to know something hot in the Indonesia's start-up domain? It's Go-Jek. It's the Uber of Indonesia. What is Go-Jek? It's an application to search for "ojek". Ojek is a motorcycle transportation for public done by individuals. Or a motorcycle taxi. It's an Indonesian - or, I should say, Asian - thing. Many places in Indonesia are easier reached by motorcycle; streets are narrow. Motorcycles..
If you want to know, gemstone currently is very popular in Indonesia. I repeat, VERY POPULAR. There, I shouted. At least, this is true in Bandung. Everywhere you see, there's gemstone. Even on the sidewalk, people just open their own gemstone "store" or "boot". ("Lapak", in Bahasa Indonesia.) I believe, now the gift from Indonesia is "batu akik", the Indonesian's name for gemstone. To be...
There is a classic reason why I have not updated this blog, busy. Yes, I've been too busy with many things. No, really, I am not trying to make excuses. I am truly, really, busy. Sometimes, I wonder why other people seem to be relaxed. Nothing to do. But, then again I could be wrong. They might be busier than I am. Although, I doubt that. I know that there are people who are as busy as I am, and.
Just tested Photoscape 3.7 under Wine under Linuxmint 17. Looked okay, but then when I edited an image ... preview of all images became broken greyscale. It looked like this: Don't know where to report. Posted here for the benefit of others. Any fix(es) out there?
I've been using Google mail (gmail) for years. Obviously, I use picasa also to store my photos. Currently, I am having a problem with my (mostly email) accounts. It almost reaches the 15 GB limit. I use my gmail as my main communication media. Students sending assignments are kept in my mailboxes. Every semester I have betweet 30 to 100 students and I've been teaching more than 15 years. The...
I have too many emails. Hundreds of emails daily. That's not counting spam mails. It's not that I think I am important. It's just that I've been using emails for too long. Since late 1987 or 1988, I think. The problem is that most mail readers currently cannot handle this situation. I ended up with cases of lost emails. Somebody sent me an email and I did not reply right away because there was...
Everytime I go to a bookstore, I bring book(s) out of the store. My wallet suffers a bit. That's not my main worry. My main concern is I keep on piling books. My to read list is getting longer and longer ... and longer. I think this is my new law (BR's law on books): the speed of buying books > the speed of reading books Ugh ... I think I am not the only one.
kenapa ya kok kita sibuuukkk ingin tahu kabinet? ini hanya sekedar untuk menunjukkan betapa hausnya kita akan informasi.
Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook (as if you need this introduction - ha ha ha), is Indonesia. He met with our next president, Joko Widodo - famously called Jokowi, in Jakarta. Joko Widodo will be sworn as our president on Oct 20th. One of the photos that made me laugh (happy laugh) is this. In this picture, Jokowi showed Mark some kind of pants (I think it's a pair of jeans) from a small...

One of the problems I have with Android phones is that by default (?) the configuration is trying to sync the phone with my Google account. For my case, it tries to download (sync) my emails (gmails) and photos I uploaded to picasa. This is a disaster since I have lots - say more than 10,000 emails - and Gigabytes of photos. I found out about this a while ago when I tried a new Android phone. I..
Bandung is a food barometer in Indonesia. Well, not just food, but also fashion. This post is the food side. Next time, I'll post the fashion side. I am so glad that I live in this city. The new food buzz in Bandung is Bon Chon. This is a Korean-franchised fast food. It's the Korean KFC, sort of. Their favorite menu is the honey-glazed chicken. It's sweet and a little better compared to KFC, in..
Just got back from Singapore. We flew from Singapore to Jakarta and went back to Bandung using train. The Argo Parahyangan train was okay. Lots of tourists were on the train. Arrived in Bandung, we decided to take taxi to our home. It has been a while since I took taxi from this train station. I didn't know what to do. So, when we were just off the gate, we were swarmed by unofficial taxi...
This blog has been distracted for a while. At one point I have not touched this blog for quite a while because I have another blog to maintain. But, then I remember the purpuse of this blog; to share my knowledge about Indonesia (for those who are far away from Indonesia). I was away from Indonesia for quite a while. At that time, late 80s early 90s, there was no World Wide Web. Email was also...
One of the problem being a leader is that you have to be perfect. At least, that's what the public want to precieve you. The result is that everybody is looking at you, trying to find mistake(s) you made. Once they found it, they blow it up like crazy. They won't let you give explanation. They just won't listen. You can only say ... "Yes, I am (always) wrong."...
