symbian quick, easy & free push email alternative

first is to understand what is push email. for users' view, push email is simply mean you dont have to check your email anymore. they just arrive on your mobile. just like the way sms works.

why pay for push email service when you can get something 'similar' for free!?

symbian standard messaging application already support pop3/imap email. you just have to set it up so that it regularly check your email account. you can set from every 5 minutes, up to every 6 hours to check for new email.

for detail, please see the screenshots album here. i will move the screenshots here when i'm not such lazy anymore... :)

for newer symbian apps, there's an IMAP feature called IDLE that can do real and better push mail. if you have the device, i can show you.

if you want security, you can enable ssl. but make sure that you have correct ssl certificate for your domain. otherwise, you will be prompt a warning about invalid certificate. thus, it wont check your email until you confirm the certificate.

guess how many IM virus this man got infected?

how many IM viruses infected this man's computer? or is it only one virus sending so much junk?

i really dont know and might never know. my pc never get infected by any virus without my knowing. either because i'm on linux on other pc, or my windows pc never use the most targeted apps (ym, msie, msoe, etc. i always use third party apps for IM, email, browsing, etc.) like i suggested.

so, to answer John, i dont have to deal with any virus on my pc at all. :)

i do deal with a lot of viruses on friends and families infected computers. but they rarely do IM online so i rarely deal with any IM virus.

i guess, it'll be same to deal with any virus. me, i have portable clamwin and spybotsd on my flashdisk and get it updated when i need to use it on friends & families infected pc. i also have winpatrol to remove any unneeded startup apps, worms & virus.

how to put 'Blog This' link on your blogger beta

i am searching for a 'Blog This' links to put on my blogger beta. currently, i only found a link to blog to Yahoo! 360. anyone got links i can use? i want link to wordpress.com, blogger.com and whatever i can find.

the code is here.

update: it's a beta test. so, some links not working yet.
because wordpress.com need to access the subdomain directly, it might be impossible to link directly to wordpress.com. it will need to know the subdomain of wordpress.com to do it.

Review aplikasi j2me gmail

Google baru rilis aplikasi gmail utk hp berbasis java. Bisa download & instal langsung dari hp dgn buka web gmail.com/app
fitur selain baca/tulis/balas email:
- signature email yg sama dgn yg seting yg tersimpan
- akses label gmail
- search, dont sort. Perbedaan utama gmail tdk menggunakan folder utk sortir email tetapi memaximalkan search utk menemukan email yg kita mau
- thread / conversation view. Fitur yg saat ini blm ada pada email laen, dan juga salah satu fitur favorit saya. Menampilkan email dan semua balasan dalam bentuk percakapan seperti forum/newsgroup.

Walaupun sebelumnya gmail bisa diakses dari hp dgn membuka m.gmail.com, tetapi sangat terbatas pada fungsi utama email, yaitu baca, tulis&balas saja dan tdk menampilkan thread view.

- tdk bisa attachment
- harus selalu online
- tdk bisa sync alamat/contact dgn hp seperti yahoo go
- tdk bisa akses alamat yg tersimpan di hp
- terlalu sering menanyakan mau konek dgn akses point yg mana.
- aplikasi java menggunakan memory lebih bnyk daripada aplikasi native symbian

walaupun dari pc tiap hari sy online gmail, tetapi utk akses dari hp sy lbh suka yahoo go yg terintegrasi dgn aplikasi messaging symbian.

Selain itu, tdk bisa attachment sering menyebabkan sy batal menggunakan gmail.
Misal email ini sy attach dgn gambar2 menggunakan yahoo go.

Sehingga, akses gmail dari hp menjadi sekadar cek email aja.

bloglines dynamic OPML url

if i understand this 3spot post correctly, i think he must miss this export opml link from bloglines that generated dynamicaly from our list of subscription. so, anytime we add/remove any subscriptions, the OPML also gets updated.

Example of the widget i put on my other blog here.

Komputer Bersih Komputer Sehat

Kebersihan pangkal Kesehatan.

hal yg sama berlaku untuk komputer anda.

kalo pc tua anda belakangan ini mulai rewel dan 'bertingkah' aneh... kadang2 ram tidak detek. kadang2 cdrom hilang... kadang2 gak mau boot... kadang2 reset 5x baru bisa masuk windows...

mungkin saja disebabkan pc anda tidak betah dgn kondisi kotor didalamnya.

ini cara membersihkan pc anda supaya tidak rewel...

alat2 yg diperlukan:

  • kuas
  • penghapus pensil
  • kalo ada... vacum cleaner dan/atau semprotan udara
  • obeng
langkah2 membersihkan pc anda:
  • buka baut2 casing (pake obeng kali ye...) supaya anda bisa akses langsung isi perut pc anda. (peringatan! kalo masih garansi, membuka casing akan membatalkan garansi pc anda!)
  • buka baut2 di card pci dan cabut semua card pci
  • cabut semua kabel2 dari motherboard
  • cabut ram/memory
  • (optional, experience user only!) cabut cpu dari motherboard. buka baut2 motherboard dari casing. cabut motherboard dari casing. (anda harus mengerti pemasangan kembali cpu ke motherboard karena kesalahan pemasangan cpu akan merusak cpu dan motherboard anda!)
  • cabut hdd, cdrom, floppy, dsb...
  • mulai bersih2... nyalakan vacum cleaner, sedot semua debu. gunakan semprotan untuk lokasi yg sulit diakses vacum cleaner. bisa juga gunakan kuas.
  • gunakan hapusan pensil untuk membersihkan pins/konektor ram dan vga/pci card.
  • pasang kembali semuanya pada posisi semula.
  • nyalakan! banyak masalah dan kerewelan pc akan lenyap dan pc anda kembali bersih dan nyaman... anda pun lebih nyaman bekerja dgn kondisi lebih bersih
walaupun pc anda selalu berada didalam ruangan tertutup dan ac, anda akan terkejut melihat isi perut pc anda yg penuh debu.....

silakan mencoba!

computer expansion and connections

right now,
there're many many ways to expand your computers capabilities:

  • old pc use isa card
  • pci card for newer pc
  • pcmcia, or pc-card for short. for laptop. start from type I, II and III.
  • compact flash, the compact size of pc card
  • usb
  • firewire
  • express card, the latest of pc card technology for laptop
and also lots of them for connectivity (data transfer between devices):
  • usb also used to connect devices
  • firewire
  • IDE for harddrives
  • SATA / PATA for newer harddrives
  • SCSI, the old technology that SATA/PATA tries to exceed.
  • Ethernet (LAN)
  • HomePNA
  • HomePlug
  • VGA, AGP, DVI for video
and for wireless connection:
  • irda (infra red)
  • bluetooth
  • wifi / wlan
  • wimax
and, too much more than i can remember...

my dream is, someday, somehow, all these can converge into one great technology without confusing end user...


using same cable, same plug, same connector, same pins, you can plug your mobile phones or your PDA or your printer or hard disks or scanner or monitor or speakers or keyboard or mouse or flash disks or fax or dispensers or refrigerator or mp3/mp4/mpX player or television or audio system or even your brain into it :)

there's one technology that try to accomplish this dream. it's HomePlug:

" Imagine:
Entering your house, you unpack and plug in your newly purchased flat-panel TV. Simply and quickly - the TV automatically connects to the cable box, the DVD player, the Digital Video Recorder, the Home Theatre system, and also to the Internet. "

'almost' close to my dream, aint it...

currently, scatters here:

  • http://dennyhalim.blog.indosiar.com
  • http://dennyhalim.blogspot.com

so, this will be a blog focused on computer & IT.

Mengapa Bandwidth Mahal?

banyak alasan diajukan. misalnya masalah monopoli/duopoli jaringan infrastruktur, beli dari luar negeri mahal dsb....

buktinya (hampir) semua isp bisa jual dial-up unlimited dibawah satu juta rupiah.

kenapa kalo udah pake wifi misalnya, atau lewat evdo-nya mobile8 tarifnya jadi laen?

isp BISA menjual bw murah KALO MAU!
