A picture is not always paint a thousand words. This presentation shows you that a thousand words can speak a thousand million words.
This was happened last month.
September is a tough months for me and my family, as it was the month we move to Bali 2 years ago. We didn’t know how we can pay our big recurring bills that occur in September, then somehow the magic happen in Sunday. We went to church as usual at the morning then back at home at about 8 in the morning. I turned on my computer, check some news then went back to sleep. At about 11 AM i woke up, get some meals, took a bath then back to my computer. What i first saw was an email from a long time friend.
This is the second time LippoBank do stupid things to me and this time i believe it will be more if i continue to use their banking services.
Got this phish email yesterday:
Dear valued users LippoNetBank,
The WordPress default category is ‘Uncategorized’. By not deleting this default category will show how lazy the blog owner is or simply show that the blogger has no idea (like i used to be). Many times Once or twice i forget to assign my posts to categories and then after i publish it, WordPress will filed that uncategorized posts under the default category. So i change the default category into Thoughts and Discoveries, which i think is quite general and can be assigned to most of posts i have in this blog because this is a personal blog. Hey!
Source: WikipediaThe first SEO blog i read was Aaron Wall’s SEO Book. The reason was not because i interested in SEO (i didn’t know WTF is SEO), but because of his blog design. To me, SEOBook.com is truly the best damn blog in the planet. So i subscribed to his blog, read his daily thoughts, that lead me to more and more SEO blogs.
Yesterday, i’ve past my first experience: undergone a surgery. Back to the days before the day, i keep wondering what to expect because i had no idea whatsoever.
When the time was come, accompanied by my wife, we went to Unit Gawat Darurat (Emergency Room) at Kasih Ibu Hospital in Denpasar Bali. They asked me to change my clothes and preparing necessary set ups. After about an hour waiting, i was brought to the surgery room using a wheelchair (i felt retarded) and get into a cold (scary) surgery room.
Sorry to cover in such shallow angle but here’s what i learn today, the difference between Intrapreneur and Entrepreneur:
1. If you’re an Intrapreneur (read: employee), and you’re backstabbed by your colleague, then you’ll know it, because bad things spread fast in work environment. That way, it keep you stronger and willing to find the best way to survive in the condition. Or worse, leave the company.
I have no techie nor design background whatsoever. I am more like evangelist dude who is into interesting things. Lately, thanks to blogging and massive RSS reading, i can finally free from my mediocre design and techie friends who are lack of discipline, big headed and their always come late attitude. I am now more aware of technology and design because in fact i am now can do almost everything in the web by myself.
It’s moved out from Blogger to WordPress. New year, new host, new cool template.
More on this later. It’s not finished customized as yet but i am now too tired and it’s late already here in Bali. I’m joining my wife and kid at bed.
This has been on my mind for several days now. A simple rule that the cheaps will never understand:
If you wish for a Return on Investment, the first thing you need to do is to invest.
I first acknowledge this through Tim Ferris’ blog entitled What Happens When an Agnostic Follows the Bible Literally for One Year? Not only because i am Christian, but also because the interview stunned me. I became curious about the book and the writer A.J. Jacobs but then it was just lost from my mind until today, my subscription to We Show send me the excerpt of A.J.’s speech at First Congregational Church of Berkeley and Cody’s Books which held at Oct 24th, 2007. The show was originally covered by fora.tv, so i went to Fora.tv, signed up for a free account and get this video below.
From the page at Fora.tv:
For my subscribers, i am sorry for the lack of post lately. I’ve been away from Blogger figuring out further on how WordPress work. Here’s my two cents so far:
It has been confusing because unlike Blogger, where i host this blog, you can find gazillions of cool free templates (themes) in WordPress. So, rookie WordPress user like me can get out of mind only to decide which theme i should use for my blog (s). Because in the end, among those cool themes, i can only use one of them for each of my blogs. Lately I am trying to put my mind and try to decide to buy a premium theme (a paid theme that other people can also buy and use it in their blogs). But unlike free themes, it came with tutorials & further knowledge about using the theme. I hope i can explore WordPress even more more using these tutorials.
Seriously, w00t (spelled w zero zero t) named as Merriam-Webster Word of The Year (heck, where have i been??). The famous Massachusetts dictionary company describe w00t as expressing joy (it could be after a triumph, or for no reason at all); similar in use to the word “yay”.
