Ubuntu Pocket Guide and Reference

Although it’s been awhile I know about this book, I decided to download it today. At first I didn’t notice that this book is available for free download :D. The PDF version of this book is free to download and you can buy the print version from Amazon.com

The contents of this 152 pages book are:

Chapter 1: Installing Ubuntu
Chapter 2: Configuring Ubuntu
Chapter 3: Getting to grips with the desktop
Chapter 4: Users and the filesystem
Chapter 5: Hands-on at the command-line
Chapter 6: Software Management
Chapter 7: Securing the system

For you who interested to download this book, you can go directly to Ubuntu Pocket Guide and Reference website. User from Indonesia can download faster from FOSS-ID website. But it’s best if you download directly from their website to get the most recent version.

At this moment I also like to thanks the author of this book, Keir Thomas  for making this book free to download :)

Red Cliff II

Red Cliff IIRed Cliff II or also known as Chi bi xia: Jue zhan tian xia is the second episode of Red Cliff or also known as Chi bi. This movie is about the The Battle of Red Cliff in Three Kingdoms era in China.

When I saw the first episode of the movie, I was dissapointed because I didn’t know that the movie will be continued to the second episode. The first episode ends with the preparation of the battle. So I was curious how will the movie end.

In this second episode of the movie, it tells the story how Cao Cao’s efforts to take over the Red Cliff through land and sea. But his effort can be broken by Zhao Yu who has coalition with Sun Quan and Liu Bei. Superb strategy collaboration between Zhao Yu and Zhuge Liang (Liu Bei’s advisor) could predict the move that will be used by Cao Cao, so they could counter attack Cao Cao’s strategy. The war strategy used is not only for physical attack, but also for moral attack between both sides makes this film more appealing.

With John Woo as the director of this movie, there are a lot of interesting action scenes. Also with a good plot of the story, makes this movie worth to watch :)

FreSh Part 5

Yesterday I went to FreSh (Freedom of Sharing) Part 5 event in Wetiga / dagdigdug.com‘s office.

From five presentations, I only interested in three of them. The one from Norman Sasono (Microsoft Indonesia), Boy Avianto and Anggun Himawan

Norman Sasono said that although the web is offering more services to the users, Microsoft still don’t believe in software as services. Users not only need a browser to access a services on the internet, but they also need a sofware installed in their computers. So, Microsoft solution is Software plus Services. The simple example of Software + Services is iTunes. You installed it in your computer, use it to play some music or movies. But when you need to buy some music, the iTunes will connect to iTunes store on the internet. He also present some demonstration of software using WPF, Silverlight and Azure, the next Microsoft platform for Software plus Services.

Boy Avianto shares his dream in life. Although he have failures to reach his dream, he didn’t give up and always do his best to make his dream come true. And starting January 2009, his dream to work abroad is coming true. He will be working in a research foundation in New York, USA. Congratulations bro! Keep in touch, ok? And for all of you (including me) who hasn’t have a dream come true, don’t stop dreaming and don’t stop trying to reach your dreams. Unless you don’t have anymore dreams to reach :D

Anggun Himawan give a message to us that people should always patience to reach “My Life Wis Pol” (My Life is Full). Don’t give up, learn from mistakes, patience, keep trying and pray to God will help people to reach their dreams.
