64 GB Sandisk Ultra Flair USB 3.0

leave a comment »

This is the benchmark test on 64 GB Sandisk Ultra Flair USB 3.0
The biggest drawback is that the  metallic body heats up really fast when used.
If you’re sensitive to heat, use a folded tissue to plug it out after safely removed it from the computer.

Inet Rants

leave a comment »

Inet in Jakarta is expensive. Currently I spend around Rp. 352k/month for mobile broadband inet with bandwidth of 40-50 GB.
I want to opt using mobile broadband and SSH in order getting unlimited inet with a cheaper price, but it can’t be used for a long time.

Oh, if you are wondering why I don’t use ISP services that promote fiber optic broadband connection, all of them are not available in the area that I lived. So, at the moment I can opt for using Tri (during midnight), BOLT!, smartfren, or Indosat.
I don’t use Indosat because of their notorious data scheme. Tri is quite affordable, but the speed is unbearable during workdays…. Smartfren’s data scheme: 9 and 12 GB for 150k is not enough for a month’s usage…

Oh, well…. I guess I’ll just focusing in getting a bigger income, then.

GalaxyTab 2 and Slimkat 8.0

leave a comment »

Yeaaah! Now,  I am the proud owner of a GalaxyTab 2 that runs on Slimkat 8.0 (Android Kitkat 4.4.4). I know that this is a custom ROM and I have broke the warranty, but who cares.  My warranty already expired,  so no loss at all.
The tab itself is revived after I install the custom Kitkat. Long gone all the bloatwares that hinder my tab’s potentials. Well, it seems that I don’t have to buy a new smartphone due to outdated OS. 😀
Anyway, I use the Heimdall suite to flash CWM 6.0.2.3 then I install Cyanogenmod 10.1.3 based on Android 4.2.2. Then,  I learnt the Slimkat existence. Took some effort to install it,  but I made it.

My Birthday

leave a comment »

Okay, today is my birthday. It feels like any other days,  IMHO. The difference is only… IT IS YOUR BIRTHDAY! THE DAY YOUR MOTHER GAVE BIRTH TO YOUR EXISTENCE TO THE WORLD. Instead of hanging out and spend time with your friends to celebrate, it’s better to spend some time with your mother and father. I know that this is a  bit cliché, but it’s still a good act to do on your birthday, rite?

Jakarta As Usual

leave a comment »

Okay,  I’ll officially announced that Jakarta is back as usual… especially it’s traffic jam. Man, the streets are packed with all sorts of  vehicles that made the roads so congested. So, I guess this will be the right time to practice Zen meditation when you’re stuck in traffic. Or just pay attention to your smartphone screens, reading articles or gossiping with friends on private messaging apps. I’ll put faith that few people really done some work tasks when they’re stuck in traffic.

Aside of that,  I’m sleepy right now because I drank Nü Milk Tea yesterday.  That drink is too sweet and it made me stayed up quite long before I’ve finally got some sleep.

Anyway,  it’s good that Jakarta is crowded again.  (^o^)

Huawei Ideos S7-104

leave a comment »

Okay, I know that this tablet is an antique one. Prehistoric if you might say. But for me, this tablet is an investment. Despite of its Android 2.2, 160 MB program space, and its dreaded resistive touchscreen, this tablet still does decent tasks to some extent. Like the fact that I’m writing my blog post using this tablet.
I just need to find replacement for the deteriorated battery, after that I can use it as a desk alarm clock, music and media player or even a e-book reader.

CBT Rusty Hearts Indonesia

leave a comment »

Okeee… Hari Senin tanggal 12 Mei 2014 kemarin saya pergi ke acara launching CBT Rusty Hearts Indonesia di LEVEL 1 Cyber World, Binus. Jujur saja, saya ini termasuk orang yang jarang main game online, jadi kenapa saya tertarik mainin Rusty Hearts Indonesia? Jawabannya simple: artworknya keren dan penjelajahan tunggal di dungeon.

RHI adalah game online bertemakan penjelajahan dungeon dari Korea milik Stairway Games dan Windysoft  yang diluncurkan oleh Digital Eight untuk region Indonesia. Laman resminya bisa kalian lihat di sini. Jujur, pada saat nyobain game ini untuk pertama kalinya, saya agak kecewa dengan tampilan grafisnya (mungkin karena belum disetting secara optimal di komputer warnet). Nggak usah basa-basi lebih lama lagi, mari kita bahas game ini.

Minimal spek: 

Keterangan Minimum Recommended
Operating System Windows® XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 7
CPU Intel® Pentium® 4 1GHz Dual-Core 2.5GHz CPU atau lebih
RAM 1 GB 2GB atau lebih untuk XP, 3GB atau lebih untuk Windows Vista dan Windows 7
Hard Disk 5GB atau lebih 14GB atau lebih
Graphic Card NVIDIA GeForce FX5200 ATI Radeon9550 NVIDIA GeForce 6600 256M Pixel Shader, Vertex Shader Ver 3.0
DirectX Minimum 9.0C

Pengalaman saya ketika menginstal RHI… Awalnya, saya malas download clientnya dan berharap dapat DVD instalernya pas datang ke acara CBT. Oke, harapan saya memang terkabul, tapi… dapatnya DVD cacat! *nangis guling-guling*
Jadi, dengan sangat terpaksa, saya mengorbankan 3.3 GB kuota internet saya untuk ngedownload client game RHI dari sini. Setelah selesai didownload, langsung instal! Ketika instal sedang berlangsung, saya diminta untuk instal Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (saya pakai Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit). Kalau untuk Windows XP, ditambah sama Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package (kalau nggak salah ingat). Lalu, setelah proses instal selesai, jalankan clientnya! Lalu, klik tombol “Game Start”… kena download patch 21 MB… (ya, iyalah! Ini game online gitu!). Setelah selesai patch… malah nge-freeze… Keluarkan jurus Ctrl+Alt+Del, kill process… Ulang lagi! (Curiga ini gara-gara setting grafik kurang pas, jadi mulai cari-cari tombol “Setting”). Sumpah, itu tulisan “Setting”-nya kecil amat! Mata saya sampai jelajatan ke mana-mana sebelum akhirnya melihat tombol kecil di samping “Game Start”. Setting grafik selesai, akhirnya jalan lancar dan langsung lanjut main!

Selama saya bermain, nggak merasa ada hal yang mengganggu, sih. Paling hanya penempatan kata-kata di menu yang masih perlu dirapikan, kok. Plus, jumlah koin emas yang didapatkan setelah menyelesaikan dungeon itu nggak bisa ditambah, ya? (dasar rakus. :-p) Untuk pilihan senjatanya, saya memilih dual wielding sword (Frantz). Soalnya, itu paling cepat dan bisa double damage, meskipun kecil damagenya. Sedangkan kapak memegang rekor damage terbesar, tapi react time paling lambat. Dalam masa CBT ini, hanya ada 2 karakter yang bisa dimainkan, yaitu Frantz dan Angela. Kalau mau tahu tentang deskripsi lengkapnya, silakan ke http://landing.game8a.com/rustyhearts/ (dasar blogger pemalas).

Salah satu hal yang saya senangi dengan RHI adalah kompabilitasnya untuk dimainkan dengan gamepad. Dan, sialnya saya kena racun Logitech Wireless Gamepad F710 yang dipamerkan oleh salah satu reporter Gamenesia di  kepada saya di acara CBT. Saya berterima kasih atas tindakan anda itu. 😀 Jadi, untuk saat ini, mari menikmati CBT RHI (12 s/d 22 Mei 2014) sembari menabung uang agar bisa membeli gamepad tersebut dan bisa digunakan pada saat RHI sudah benar-benar bisa dimainkan secara penuh. 🙂
