Uh, sudah terlalu banyak yang protes aku ngeblog pakai bahasa Inggris. Mungkin eneg melihat bahasa Inggrisku :)

Untuk selanjutnya, aku mengubah bahasa postinganku menjadi bahasa Indonesia. Namun sebagai bahan latihan berbahasa Inggris, tidak menutup kemungkinan untuk posting lagi menggunakan bahasa Inggris.

Mail Yahoo Interface

Ah, I think this is a old news, since I have heard it a long time before. But because I never open my mail on Yahoo!, so I never experience it myself.

Today, I try to open my email on Yahoo! Mail, and when I do the login process, there are some new interfaces I never see before.

All components are AJAX enabled, very exciting, as good as GMail interface.

But there are some negative point I have found:

  • Very Heavy to Load
    I just try it on Firefox and Internet Explorer, and it is very heavy to be loaded on both of those browser. The documentation said that the internet connection used must have enough speed. I am sure with my net speed, so I think the problem is on my notebook, that is not strong enough to load the display. So, new interface need a computer with a high quality now?
  • Very Heavy Advertise
    The heavy I mean here is not same with my statement above. I just wondering, why whenever I scroll down/up the mail list, the advertise banner is changed?
    I do not select the email yet, just clicking the scrollbar. And on each click, the banner content is refreshed. This is slowing down the email selection process.

Whatever, I am very impressed with the Yahoo! innovation, it is more like a desktop application now.

Here is the screenshoot:

Windows vs. Virus

No, Windows is not a virus. Here’s what viruses do:

  1. They replicate quickly – okay, Windows does that.
  2. Viruses use up valuable system resources, slowing down the system as they do so – okay, Windows does that.
  3. Viruses will, from time to time, trash your hard disk – okay, Windows does that too.
  4. Viruses are usually carried, unknown to the user, along with valuable programs and systems. – Sigh.. Windows does that, too.
  5. Viruses will occasionally make the user suspect their system is too slow (see 2) and the user will buy new hardware. – Yup, Windows does that, too.


Until now it seems Windows is a virus but there are fundamental differences: Viruses are well supported by their authors, are running on most systems, their program code is fast, compact and efficient and they tend to become more sophisticated as they mature.

So Windows is not a virus.

It’s a bug.

Another Hacking Tools

This is posted on Milis Kampung Gajah a few days ago, about Google Code that has been used as a hacking tool.

You may try it by yourself:

  1. point your browser into: http://google.com/codesearch
  2. enter this query: lang:php file:wp-config user -sample
  3. submit it
  4. see what is returned by the search engine

This phenomenon also happened several years ago, similiar like this, when Google was used as a ‘victim finder’. The hacker only needs to search the terms like “under construction”, “login.asp” or something like that :)

Ok, with or without this ‘feature’, hacker still have the chance to find out a security hole, but with this tool, it will add the list of hacking tools.
The hacker will always search for security hole. Sounds like a nightmare for some system administrators. But with this situation, there will be always a security update, some code fixes, etc.

Bravo Hacker!

Windows Live Messenger Bug

Not a big deal, I think. It is only one small mistake, just like what I have done (sometimes).

Today I just install Windows Live Messenger on my laptop, and here is what I got:

Windows Live Messenger
There is no problem with that, but, does anyone who create this installer not seeing this button titles? it is look so odd.
Or, is the problem actually on mine?
