seven-1: day one

Twas started at 1 AM. Yeah, I was all excited to participate with this seven that I thought I should get a head start. ha ha ha. That was a lie and you know it. But, really, I was up and I thought I capture some of the moment in that hour. Took my camera and shot some 1 o'clock artifacts.



... fast forward ... morning ... it was cloudy and gloomy. I hate every bit of it. But, this is weekend. I have a habbit to take photos in my surrounding area. There shouldn't be an exception to this. Here's one of the snapshots.



There are a lot of flowers in our garden. I wanted to take photos but remembered that I have taken zillion photos of them and uploaded to by blog. Maybe my readers are bored already with those pictures. but, heck ...

Then, I took my son for a driving lesson. In Indonesia, most cars use manual stick (although automatic gears are becoming popular). Not that easy teaching to balance between gas, clutch, and break pedals. [Took pictures ...]




went back home and there's still time to do jogging ...



and "nasi kuning" (yellow rice) for breakfast (part 2 - ha ha ha).



then, the whole family decided that we should go to a computer fair. We were looking for a netbook. We bought one but it took time to install the software that we decided to go and had lunch at (Wendy's) Braga Citiwalk, which is close by. Then it was raining and we were trapped there. And to my amazement, there were no coffee shop there! So we ended up having lunch and coffee at Wendy's. Oh well ...



Oh, I bought an el-cheapo mouse (Rp. 15,000). Arrrghhh apparently it is one of those "disco mouse" (mouse that has too many blinking lights). Grrr...



[will update this as the day goes by. i should make this into a real-hand-drawn comic, eh? take the most interesting stories. but, for now let me document everything here first.]

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…

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…

Yummy ...
