Arrrgggh... It's happening on my blogspot page

In earlier article, I wrote about problems in my other blogs (modblog, etc.). Now, it's happening on this blog. For some reasons I could not access the main page, gbt.blogspot.com, but the individual articles are just fine. That is, you have to get the articles directly not from the main page.

Arrrggghhh. What's happening ...

Phew ... it's back now. Don't know what happened, but I am just glad that this page is back online. (I did send a problem report, though.)

Hey budi,

I stopped by to see how you were doing and I see from this post that you had familiar problems Thursday. A great number of former ModBloggers have set up blogs at an amazing free blog-host called EFx2 at

http://www.efx2.com/

When I joined a week ago it had most of the options ModBlog had; now it has ALL of them and more! You can add custom sidebar "menus' (naming these 'menus' anything you want)) with whatever content you like; bulletins, links, html code, pictures,anything. There are several nice basic and advanced templates with full control over the layout and design.

Take a look at my EFx2 blog at

and keep in mind that all I did to it was upload the images, change the colors, and arrange things. And I made some custom 'menus'. But my design may be a little 'busy' to some so look at some other blogs, too. Like ModBlog, some are graphically rich and some are very simple, yet well designed. And it's so easy!

Keith, the site owner/developer, has been very accommodating and fully understands how frustrated we all are with instability issues. He's expressed sincere commitment to communicate about development and downtime and he's believable...he's one of the most active members of the community. You can browse the forums and see that he's responded very quickly and built requested features almost immediately.

The instability and absence of reliability of "that other place" was intolerable but Keith is doing everything right. You'll be surprised at how many former ModBloggers are there, maybe people you've been missing. I urge you to check it out even if you're too busy right now to set up someplace else (again!), it's an amazing community.

Blog on, my friend!

...but don't blog me, I'll be NICE :)

Band progressive rock baru?

Lepas dari yang serius-serius sebentar. Kita ke musik lagi.

Terus terang saya tadinya mulai merasa bahwa musik progressive rock bakalan mati. Seperti lirik dari lagu band Asia - "Rock and Roll Dream":

When I see your faces from the limousine. No chance of our survival...

Tapi setelah saya mendengarkan The Flower Kings, harapan tumbuh lagi. Band yang dimotori oleh Roine Stolt (gitar) memiliki nuansa (melodi?) yang selaras dengan band-band terdahulu. Mereka sanggup membawakan lagu Cinema Show-nya Genesis dengan sempurna. Bahkan lebih baik menurut saya. Jadi, para penggemar sekalian, progressive rock akan tetap tumbuh subur.

Roine Stolt juga menjadi bagian dari band Transatlantic yang juga memiliki nuansa progressive rock. Maklum, mereka campuran dari Dream Theater, Marillion, The Flower Kings, dan Spock's Beard. Meski, ada lagu bootleged live show mereka yang kedodoran membawakan lagu "Firth of Fifth" nya Genesis. Ternyata band besar bisa kedodoran juga.

Repotnya, mus…

Himbauan Kepada Hacker & Cracker Indonesia & Malaysia

Kepada Hacker & Cracker Indonesia & Malaysia,

Saya mengharapkan anda tidak melakukan penyerangan atau/dan pengrusakan situs-situs Indonesia dan Malaysia.

Saya mengerti bahwa akhir-akhir ini beberapa masalah di dunia nyata membuat kita kesal dan marah. Namun kekesalan tersebut sebaiknya tidak dilimpahkan ke dunia maya (cyberspace). Semestinya sebelum melakukan aksi yang berdampak negatif, kita bisa melakukan langkah-langkah positif seperti melakukan dialog (melalui email, mailing list, bulletin board, blog, dan media elektronik lainnya).

Kita harus ingat bahwa kita hidup bertetangga dan bersaudara. Yang namanya hidup bertetangga pasti mengalami perbedaan pendapat. Mari kita belajar bertetangga dengan baik.

Saya berharap agar kita yang hidup di dunia maya mencontohkan bagaimana kita menyelesaikan permasalahan dengan kepala dingin dan hati yang lapang, sehingga para pemimpin kita di dunia nyata dapat mencontoh penyelesaian damai. Mudah-mudahan mereka dapat lebih arif dan bijaksana da…

Tenggang waktu sebelum domain (.ID) didaur ulang?

Saat ini setelah domain tidak membayar, maka status domain akan berubah menjadi hold. Pada kondisi ini domain tidak dapat diquery/hilang namun domain belum dapat dilepas ke publik kembali. Saat ini belum ada aturan kapan domain yang sudah mati ini dapat digunakan kembali, mungkin oleh orang lain. Sudah saatnya ada kejelasan mengenai daurulang (recycle) nama domain ini.

Ada dua usulan batas waktu ekstrim:
Satu (1) tahun setelah domain mati. Kontra: kelamaanTiga (3) bulan setelah domain mati. Kontra: terlalu cepat
Nah mohon masukan, masukan mana yang lebih baik dipilih?
Atau kalau ada usulan lain, mohon diutarakan beserta alasannya.
