What to do with this kind of people?
This woman asked the following over mailing list (yes, these things still exist) “Dear friends, Since I’ve had Tiger for a long time, I want to upgrade to Leopard. Do we have to pay for it? If so, how much? Is there a way around it?” Clearly she’s not interested in buying a copy of Mac OS X Leopard A follow up answer told her that it costs roughly Rp 2 million. She...

Too bloody many of them
This whole election thing reminds me of the time I went to Kemang Food Fest. Kemang Food Fest is in essence a food court with a cornucopia of selections to choose from. Some of the tenants are well known while others are no-name outlets. So one night I was there with some friends and got ourselves an empty table. We chatted a bit and wanted to check out what kind of food they got there. The...
A Matter of the State
So here we are, less than six months before the Indonesian general election. Really, less than six months to go? Whoa hold on a minute, when is it anyway? April 2009. Really? Yep. it’s not too long now, doesn’t feel like it eh? So what are you going to do about it? I’m gonna vaguely talk about it in not so many details. Skip to the end of this piece for the TL;DR version....
Beware of Blackberries
Here’s an email I got from my CEO regarding Blackberries. Translated to English from Indonesian ============== There’s been a new discovery on the effects of owning a Blackberry. Here are the results: 1. Willing to wait in line. The longer the better, does not show symptoms of irritation or displeasure 2. No more complaining about traffic 3. Hoping for repeat red lights. Becomes upset...
Twitter app wishlist
At this moment Twitter sure have a heck of a lot of 3rd party desktop and mobile apps that serve their service but not one is perfect. How could they be when everyone has his or her own way of using it? Currently I use Twitterrific on the Mac and Tweetie on my iPhone. Why not Twitterrific on both? After all, they’re both pretty much the same, even identical. Well, there are certain needs...

Fara drinks from her first straw bottle
Fara’s been drinking from a training mug this past few weeks but lately she prefers to wave the mug around, bang it on her dinner table and spill all the water inside it al over the place so we got her a straw bottle in the hope that there will be much less floor mopping to do. Looks like it’s a success. We didn’t know whether she’d be able to drink from a straw since we...

T-mobile G1: T-Mobile G1 Net Access Can't Be... →
chartier: Words of wisdom from T-Mobile customer support over the fact that the G1 Android phone continues to access the Internet even though data roaming, sync, and 3G features were turned off while abroad: In the end, [the rep’s] advice was that “the phone should have been left in the USA to avoid these charges.” Astounding.
