Home Sweet Home

home sweet homeSomeone who idealist will expect that the house they lived will always be an inspiration which not only can bear the success in live, but at the same time can give the freshen for themselves. For a dynamic and forward oriented person, a good house has to give a kind of fighting spirit in effort. A house also expected become a comfort place to take a rest, heal the weary, vanish the fatigue from daily routine, and develop their strength then at the same time give they heart in peace.

To reach a comfort and peaceful of life doesn’t mean we have to own a big and fancy house. Have you ever heard often about a rich family who has many houses in everywhere? All of their houses are big, fancy and of course expensive. The model even so dynamic and changeable, depend on the recent mode. First, country styled, and then become a Mediterranean. After, the model suddenly updated becomes a minimalist. The owner seems don’t want to under develop from a mode, they never seems to finish building their houses. Though, if they realize in reality their effort of houses can only enjoyed by their assistants and house maids. The owner even seldom stays in their house. They don’t know which house able to give them a comfort.

There is an idiom: “You can buy a house, but not a home.” With enough money you might buy a house as big or as fancy as you want. But, it doesn’t mean you buy a place to live peacefully. A place to live is an atmosphere that makes your heart in peace and harmony. The house expensively cheapness is so relative.

In consequence, make our life stay in a residence that giving freshens, peaceful and giving inspiration in life at the same time. No need too big, if only encumbering. All life will be enjoyed in simple atmosphere but bring us to feel warm. That's our house.

Drupal Templating: Insert SWF to Drupal Theme

| 0 comment(s)

The easiest way to show Flash object/ SWF is inserting SWF code in a region block that we want to perform. For the simple animation, it can normaly run. But, if the embed SWF contains interaction with ActionScript function, it will definately cause the trouble such as flash interaction disabled in IE (follow this tutorial to fix "Click to Activate" issue on http://www.kirupa.com/developer/flash8/flash_fix.htm). To avoid this embed issue, I put SWF code directly to the Drupal theme on page.tpl.php file. This inserting code is full generated code with FlashObject method to easily display Flash animations without the hassle of having to have your users click first.

Here is my SWF code sample:


<script type="text/javascript" src="flashobject.js"></script>

<div id="flashcontent" style="width: 850px; height: 300px;"></div>

<script type="text/javascript">
var fo = new FlashObject
("/files/banner.swf", "animationName", "850", "300", "8", "#FFFFFF");
fo.addParam("allowScriptAccess", "sameDomain");
fo.addParam("quality", "high");
fo.addParam("scale", "noscale");
fo.addParam("loop", "false");
fo.write("flashcontent");
</script>


Mozilla Introduce “SNOWL” for Firefox

Mozilla develops one new software in order to make search engine of firefox able to display all type of electronic message, for example from e-mail, RSS, IMS, Twitter, and even messages which coming from network social site like Facebook and and Myspace.

This software named Snowl 0.1. will help firefox user to be able in accessing all of receiving message without requiring other application. Appearance of Information or receiving message also can be altered according to necessity.

Temporarily, that first Snowl version can only be used to access the message of RSS or Atom feeds. Mozilla Foundation as the provider of the web search engine also bait to return to consumer in the form of question of whether snowl is useful.

They open the door by accepting suggestion about the way of Snowl can be used in accessing the message with more integrated. To use Snowl, consumer has to login in advance because this program still attempt. But you can pick it up for free of charge through Mozilla site.

TIPS: How to Remove Internet Temporary Data

When we surf the internet, all accessing website and pages will be saved as temporary internet data or “temporary internet files” in hard drive.

When re-accessing those website or pages, they will be faster accessed. In the other hand, the weak side is those data will take some space in hard drive. For Windows user, we can remove this temporary internet data by:

  • Click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools
  • Click Disk Clean up
  • There are few options, give (√) mark to the selection “temporary internet files,” then click OK.

What do I have to choose: JPG, PNG or GIF?

| 3 comment(s)

JPG, PNG or GIFIn the web design, the usage of images/ graphics is not just for decorate your site. Images can speaks more than words. Now PNG, JPG and GIF are the three most popular image formats for sharing screen captures on the web. Of course there’s another format called BMP but people rarely use that for obvious reasons.

When using JPG format
If you doing a still image screenshot of a video (YouTube Flash video player), Google Earth, video games, Flash animations, desktop wallpapers or photographs (like Flickr) because the image file size would be smaller without much degradation in the quality.

When using PNG format

  • If you are capturing text (like a block of source code or Google search pages or a navigation menu) because the screenshots are clear and file size remains pretty low.
  • PNG is a better choice than JPEG for storing images that contain text, line art, or other images with sharp transitions.
  • PNG gives a much wider range of transparency options and color depths.

When using GIF format
If you are using small animations and low-resolution film clips on your web, GIF can handle this job.

WordPress 2.6: How Amazing

After sometimes, I finally familiar again with WordPress when I make one blog for a family diary Anak Tersayang and Pakaian Murah. I made up my mind to use WordPress 2.6 for this blog. The excellent point of WordPress I've known since the first time was the simple of instalation process. WordPress has promised to facilitate us a very fast and simple instalation. The process will only take 5 minutes for maximum. This statement was announced since they launch WordPress 2.2, the last version of this CMS, and it is proven until now!

When you log into admin interface you'll find a new freshness. Dashboard is still decorated by
a widget which right now can be edited in appeared RSS link, title and item number. At the design themes menu, main power was the strong point of WordPress in appearing blog layout sample at the other themes that avalaible in real time.

Using thickbox efect from JQuery, we can activate the previewing themes by clicking the ACTIVATE “themesname” menu in the up right corner of windows or cancel it by clicking close (X) mark in down left corner.

There are some tips you can do after installation process for the hack performance on this WordPress 2.6 as below:
*If your WordPress blog is hosted on wordpress.com, please skip this.

  • Change the default image upload folder. Default wp installation will store all of your image inside wp-content/uploads folder and you can change to other place. This offer advantages; your image URLs become shorter and the size of your wp will always remain small and full manageable. You can set this setting on miscellaneous tab.
  • Remove the “generator code” from your wp header. This action to prevent the wp crackers hard to find the blog target which using the older and less secure versions of wp. To completely remove the version number from WordPress header, add this line to your functions.php file in the WordPress themes folder.


<?php remove_action('wp_head', 'wp_generator'); ?>

  • Prevent people from casually browsing your WordPress Folders. Since you definitely don’t want Peeping Toms to navigate your WordPress files and folders using the explorer view in web browsers, add the following link to your .htaccess file that exists in the main WordPress installation directory.


Options All -Indexes

  • Change location of the Plugins & WordPress Themes folder. With WordPress 2.6, you can place the wp-content folder anywhere on your web server. This may come handy when you are upgrading the WordPress installation because none of your existing themes and plug-ins will get overwritten even if you replace all the WordPress files with a tar downloaded from wordpress.org.

    If you decide to move the wp-content folder to another location, specify the path in the wp-config.php file:


define(’WP_CONTENT_DIR’, ‘http://www.yourblog.com/assets/wp-content’);

Another useful links I recommended:



Let My Blog Speaks Your Languages

To improve my blog for Non-English speaking readers, I just add a Google Translator menu to translate my blog to your languages. I found how to translate a blog at Digital Inspiration! All you have to do is copy-paste the following lines of Javascript code anywhere in your blog template (Blogger, Wordpress, Drupal, Joomla!, Typepad, etc). To make it work with Blogger Beta, you must open "Template/Page Elements/Add a Page Element/HTML/JavaScript" Paste this into the window:

I Say No to Maxgain

| 0 comment(s)

Say No to MaxgainYesterday morning PT Maxgain called me by phone around 9.00 am. I was surprise, I mean, how do they know my number? I said to the caller that I've never applied job to any company including Maxgain because I love my recent job and have no plan to find another one. But she insisted me to take a note to write the date of interview and their office address. I said how can I write something when ridding a motorbike? Then she told me that she would recall me in the afternoon.

Right at 2 o'clock she called me (again). This time I hardly (but still polite) said to her I feel sorry but I refused her offer because I really don't want to move from my job. I don't want to come for nothing. It's better to ignore from the start. She said OK and finally hang up the phone.

Well, actually I've known this company and feel allergy to PT Maxgain International Futures. I've heard many negative news about this company from my friends and colleagues. I didn't think that they will call me also. Actually Maxgain is a legal company but they use wrong strategy to recruit their employees without transparency. Many people feel that Maxgain cheat on them because the job they need is different with what they're offered from the beginning. I heard that many applicant come from many places outside Jakarta. Can you imagine their sacrifice? How pity! How disappointed they are when they know that actually Maxgain want them only to be an investor? According to Maxgain Scam, Maxgain is a futures company in Indonesia which has office located at BEJ Building and has webpage at http://www.maxgain.co.id. This company sometimes doesn't use own company name when calling to recruit the employees. They often using other company name. That's why we can categorate their action as a job deception. To the applicants who don't want and never send application as marketing/ trader/ investor, please take a note for the following address:

MAXGAIN INTERNATIONAL FUTURES Gedung BEJ Tower II lantai 28 Indonesia
There is some blogs which tell us more about Maxgain and Maxgain-like companies.

Petai: a Great Food Medicine

Petai as medicinePetai (Parkia speciosa) as known peteh, pete, yongchaak or sataw has earned its nickname 'stink bean' because its strong smell is very pervasive. Like mature broad beans, they may have to be peeled before cooking. It lingers in the mouth and body. This beans very popular in Indonesia as a slaw food (lalapan) or cooked as sambal goreng petai.

Petai contains three natural sugars -sucrose, fructose and glucose. Combined with fiber, petai gives an instant, sustained and substantial boost of energy. Research has proved that just two servings of petai provide enough energy for a strenuous 90-minute wor kout. No wonder petai is the number one fruit with the world's leading athletes. But energy isn't the only way petai can help us keep fit. It can also help overcome or prevent a substantial number of illnesses and conditions, making it a must to add to our daily diet.

Depression:
According to a recent survey undertaken by MIND among people suffering from depression, many felt much better after eating petai. This is because petai contain tryptophan, a type of protein that the body converts into serotonin, known to make you relax, improve your mood and generally make you feel happier.

PMS (premenstrual syndrome):
Forget the pills - eat petai. The vitamin B6 it contains regulates blood glucose levels, which can affect your mood.

Anaemia:
High in iron, petai can stimulate the production of haemoglobin in the blood and so helps in cases of anaemia.

Blood Pressure:
This unique tropical fruit is extremely high in potassium yet low in salt, making it perfect to beat blood pressure. So much so, the US Food and Drug Administration has just allowed the petai industry to make official claims for the fruit's ability to reduce the risk of blood pressure and stroke.

Brain Power:
200 students at a Twickenham (Middlesex) school were helped through their exams this year by eating petai at breakfast, break, and lunch in a bid to boost their brain power. Research has shown that the potassium-packed fruit can assist learning by making pupils more alert.

Constipation:
High in fiber, including petai in the diet can help restore normal bowel action, helping to overcome the problem without resorting to laxatives.

Hangovers:
One of the quickest ways of curing a hangover is to make a petai milkshake, sweetened with honey. The petai calms the stomach and, with the help of the honey, builds up depleted blood sugar levels, while the milk soothes and re-hydrates your system.

Heartburn:
Petai has a natural antacid effect in the body, so if you suffer from heartburn, try eating petai for soothing relief.

Morning Sickness:
Snacking on petai between meals helps to keep blood sugar levels up and avoid morning sickness.

Mosquito bites:
Before reaching for the insect bite cream, try rubbing the affected area with the inside of the petai skin. Many people find it amazingly successful at reducing swelling and irritation.

Nerves:
Petai is high in B vitamins that help calm the nervous system.

Overweight:
Studies at the Institute of Psychology in Austria found pressure at work leads to gorging on comfort food like chocolate and crisps. Looking at 5,000 hospital patients, researchers found the most obese were more likely to be in high-pressure jobs. The report c oncluded that, to avoid panic-induced food cravings, we need to control our blood sugar levels by snacking on high carbohydrate foods every two hours to keep levels steady.

Ulcers:
Petai is used as the dietary food against intestinal disorders because of its soft texture and smoothness. It is the only raw fruit that can be eaten without distress in over-chronicler cases. It also neutralizes over-acidity and reduces irritation by coating the lining of the stomach.

Temperature control:
Many other cultures see petai as a 'cooling' fruit that can lower both the physical and emotional temperature of expectant mothers. In hoiland, for example, pregnant women eat petai to ensure their baby is born with a cool temperature.

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD):
Petai can help SAD sufferers because they contain the natural mood enhancer, tryptophan.

Smoking:
Petai can also help people trying to give up smoking. The B6, B12 they contain, as well as the potassium and magnesium found in them, help the body recover from the effects of nicotine withdrawal.

Stress:
Potassium is a vital mineral, which helps normalize the heartbeat, sends oxygen to the brain and regulates your body's water balance. When we are stressed, our metabolic rate rises, thereby reducing our potassium levels. These can be rebalanced with the help of a high-potassium petai snack.

Strokes:
According to research in 'The New Engla nd Journal of Medicine, ' eating petai as part of a regular diet can cut the risk of death by strokes by as much as 40%'.

Warts:
Those keen on natural alternatives swear that if you want to kill off a wart, take a piece of petai and place it on the wart. Carefully hold the petai in place with a plaster or surgical tape!

So, as you can see, petai really is a natural remedy for many ills. When you compare it to an apple, it has four times the protein, twice the carbohydrates, three times the phosphorus, five times the vitamin A and iron, and twice the other vitamins and minerals. It is also rich in potassium and is one of the best value foods around. So maybe its time to change that well-known phrase so that we say, 'A Petai a day keeps the doctor away'.

Niche Finding Made Easy

| 0 comment(s)

Suppose you love books. Everything about them. You read voraciously. And you'd just love to write some reviews and sell the books you particularly enjoy. But hey, forget that. Right? An individual doesn't stand a chance in the book business. Right? If Barnes & Noble doesn't seem able to catch Amazon, you're not going to get it done. Right?

Well, yes and no. It's true you are not likely to beat Amazon, even if they falter in that heady race with Barnes & Noble. But if you change the rules some, you can win.

If you select a specific area, one sufficiently narrow, you can beat these companies in this niche. Few books are being published in what was previously called Male Adventure. Yet men still read when they can find an author they enjoy. I don't know this would work, but it's a possibility worth checking.

Maybe specialize in technical works, not available through major book stores. Then of course there are rare books; a narrow niche within this category might be just the ticket. Just think books. Write down every idea that comes to mind. Make a note of every interest or skill you can bring to the table.

Testing Demand And Supply

Then try to find combinations of ideas that might work for you. As Ken Evoy has suggested, work up a list of keywords for areas you feel are possibilities. Enter these words at GoTo.Com What you will get is a list of related terms people searched for last month. The counts for each item can be taken as a measure of demand. Then go to AltaVista and enter any phrases with a high demand and note the number of listings found. This is a measure of supply. The most promising areas are those for which demand (counts at GoTo) is relatively high and supply (counts at AltaVista) is relatively low.

Somewhere in this list there is a combination of books and your skills and interests with which you can define a niche. It may not be obvious at first glance, but if you pursue this approach determinedly, you will find a great niche.

Think About Ebooks

Ebooks are growing in popularity. A while back I looked into them just for the heck of it, thinking I might uncover something of interest. I did not find a specific market that has not been touched, but I bet it's there.

I did find an idea, though. With so many people publishing ebooks, there is definitely room for a great ebook compiler. The Adobe PDF format is popular, but the compiler produces post-script files that are huge. And I don't find the reader easy to use. NeoBooks is an option, but probably unnecessarily complex to use. And it excludes MAC users; there is a reader for PDF files on MACs.

I'm not planning to write a new compiler. I have included this thought only as an example of things that may come up unexpectedly while you are searching for something else. Each such idea is a possible opportunity.

Look For Connections

As I was working on another article, I opened the top drawer of my desk and grabbed the highlighter. Beneath it was an old coin my grandfather gave me years back. A penny. Dated 1849. I know nothing about coins. But this one may even be copper. It's larger than the current crop. It's worn, but the markings are still quite legible. So what's it worth? Nothing? $5000? I have no idea.

I love history. How long would it take me to learn enough about coins to safely buy and sell them? I can't say, for I've never looked into it.

But it would be easy enough to read a book or two, then see if I could find some action on eBay.Com.

There would be little risk in testing. Put the two ideas together, and I've got coins with a history. Maybe it's a joke. Maybe it would work. Easy enough to check it out.
