More Cloud.net Locations Review & Deeper Look At Their Platform

English / Writing

After i’ve posted my experience with Cloud.net two weeks ago, Terry Myers, a rep from Cloud.net contacted me to see if i’d be interested in trying out some more of their locations. I instantly said yes, of course, since who can reject such sweet, sweet chance of spinning up some free VMs from multiple providers in different locations for free. So this is a disclaimer. I’ve got $50 credits from Cloud.net to test out their […]

Ryzen Is Here

English / Writing

From GamersNexus: To get the immediate question out of the way: The processors will be made available on March 2 (shelf availability) at the following prices: AMD Ryzen R7 1700: $330 AMD Ryzen R7 1700X: $400 AMD Ryzen R7 1800X: $500 Seeing as how rumoured benchmark suggests some of these processors are twice faster than the equivalent Intel model, it’s a holy crap moment for AMD. I’m not gonna hold my breath but it’s gonna […]

It Doesn’t Look Too Good for Ahok, Unfortunately

English / Writing

Gubernatorial election in Jakarta has finished. Well, the first round of it, at least. And the result doesn’t look too good for Ahok. The gap between candidate number 2 (Ahok-Djarot) and candidate number 3 (Anies-Sandi) is far too close for comfort, and although in their public statement the Ahok-Djarot team sounds ecstatic with the result, i don’t think they’re truly being honest about it. Not for a candidate that used to have almost 70% approval […]

Lurk More, Fa**ots

English / Writing

Building a community is hard. Online, even harder. This is what I’ve noticed from recently participating in some online community building. It’s not a big project, just a small online forums for a very specific niche. And one of the things that surprise me is how important ‘seeding’ the community is. For example, from talking to several other forum founders, we found that at the beginning, they use bots, to increase the community engagement rate. […]

The PC Is Coming Back, Thanks to Youtube and PC Gaming.

English / Writing

This argument is controversial because the sales data of the PC is mixed, to say the least. Worldwide, it’s decreasing. But in the US, it’s slowly coming back[1][2], especially the retail PC market. Apart from the sales figures which I personally think show more about the state of consumer tech hardware industry and the economy, I am slowly seeing more and more about the conventional PC being discussed and talked about. Personally, I believe we’re […]

Happy Local Election Day, Indonesian

English / Writing

Today marks the first time Indonesia held a nation-wide gubernatorial election on the same day. I’m hopeful the best candidate will win and there’ll be no election riots. I’m also hopeful for the future of our state autonomy. It’s the main reason why we now have some of the brightest people acting as governors and mayors. And hopefully, Ahok wins the Jakarta election.

Setting Up a VPS for WordPress Without an Ounce of Linux Knowledge

English / Writing

I’ve been seeing this types of questions a lot in WHT. People who outgrew their shared hosting plans but not sure of upgrading to VPS or dedicated server because they’re not technical enough. Usually the advice they got is to go for a managed provider, which is of course, a great option, especially if you have more money than time. But this guide is for people who wants to squeeze what little money they can […]

On ‘Kodi Fully Loaded’ and Beautiful Interface to Piracy

English / Writing

That’s some odd title, i know, but i’m talking about the case of some android tv box sellers on Ebay that sells them with HTPC software Kodi, fully loaded with addons that facilitates watching pirated movies and tv series. There’s now a case of them being arrested in the UK. From torrentfreak: Police have arrested five people on suspicion of selling ‘pirate’ set-top boxes configured to receive pay TV. The Police Intellectual Property Crime Unit […]

There’s a Demand for a Good Shared Hosting Panel & Billing Software but There’s So Little Choice

English / Writing

There’s simply too small of choices for web hosting providers on off-the-shelf panel and billing platform to use. I really don’t understand why that is. There’s so many choice in the market for open source CMS, or other 3rd party software for sysadmin. But for off-the-shelf hosting panel and billing platform, cPanel seem to have a tight grasp on the market. Open source website control panel like Webmin, Vesta or Ajenti V are available, but […]
