Another Exploration in Jakarta..

Well after writing the last post, i finally met with The One. Hm.. No wonder even Jakarta Operational Manager sent me to meet her, even his worker called her,, madam.. Yes, she's old, with glasses, white hair.. Funny but she's very interesting person. We talked.. A lot, and it's very communicative, well she does sometimes angry with me.. Tee-hee.. No wonder. But anyway, she did listen. And that's what has been missing with others person i ever met in PT KA.
Well she suggested me to speak with an easier words. She realized that lot of people seems won't understand what i've been looking for. I guess she was right. Maybe i should've used a lower level of languages. Maybe i was hoping too much, well i did actually.. Tee-hee.. Not so much findings, but i'm so happy today, at least i've meet someone who somehow did understand what i've been looking for.
Well it's about time. After having some discussion with her, i went to Bandung Station. Hmm.. Since there's some money in my pocket, i bought an almond brownies in Kartika Sari.. Take another walk, and finally reach the Station, bought the business class ticket. Since i haven't had lunch yet, i went to Hoka hoka Bento. Seems juicy, yes it is, since i bought the expensive one.. :( at first i just want to buy the hoka hemat, which cost only 11K, but it's 24.5K! What a waste, since i did finished all of it.. (i'm hungry).
And that's for now, i'm on the train, on my way to.. Gambir Station.. Tee-hee..

UPDATED STATUS: well i don't see any benefit by going to Gambir right now, so i will just drop at Bekasi Station for now. But yes, tomorrow is gonna be the exploration day! Just wait.. Tee..hee..

Main Office of PT Kereta Api

Today, i planned to go to PT KA DAOP2 Bandung which supposed to be located near Bandung Station. It does near, but i drop off on the wrong part of the station. The PT KA DAOP2 located in the south part of the station. The problem is i drop off on the north part, and you can't pass the station freely unless you have a ticket. Well i did plan to return to Jakarta (again, tee..hee..) but who knows if un-planned things happen again, so rather buying the ticket, i took a jitney (angkot) to the south side. Took a wrong jitney (forgot to ask.. Tee..hee), and took another one and drop off in front of Hall Station. Took a little walk, reached the DAOP, but since i'm a little bit nervous, i took a sit nearby to write the outline.. Tee-hee..
In the entrance, i asked the security, and they told me to took straight from the security post.. Did it, then i asked the front office about the person i supposed to met. Hmm.. But she doesn't seems to recognize her working there. So she said to took left over the room. Did it, well it was the commercial office. Asked someone, but he also don't recognized her.. Until someone said if it was the identical name of her. Well the problem is, she wasn't working there. She was at the Main Office. Well.. Another walk.. I don't know where's the Main Office of PT KA, but they said it was near BNI building. Hmm.. I think i got it..
Took another walk.. Lot of sweat over my body, yes, Bandung seems hot this morning. Finally managed to saw that PT KA Main Office thing. Well i thought i've saw it before.. Headed to security, put my ID there and got the guest card. Well the Main Office does huge.. Tee-hee.. It has their own mosque, parking lot.. I guess it will be interesting to have a job there.. :) anyway right now i'm waiting her, since i haven't made an appointment, and right now, she's having a meeting.. Remembering me someone whose love to being busy..

A Little Trip To Bekasi City Police (Polres Bekasi) *Updated*

Today i went to Bekasi City Police or Kepolisian Resort (Polres) Bekasi. I accompanied Acing to extend his Class C Driving License which will expire tomorrow (his birthday).. tee-hee.. :) anyway, here’s what i’ve got from our trip. There are few motorcycle parking nearby the Polres, a little phenomenon which occur nearby park and ride area such train station also happened here. People which have land around such strategic place rent their space for motorcycle parking, here they named such service as Tempat Penitipan Motor (TPM), or Motorcycle Deposit Center. It’s one grand for one time parking. In addition to TPM, there’s also few photocopy center. Since you need to have few copies of your ID Card as requirements to obtain/extend driving license. Although the photocopy is more expensive there, so it would be wiser to copy the ID Card from your nearby photocopy center. Other than the ID Card copies, you will also need 112 Grands as fee to extend your driving license.

First you have to take the medical checkup, such color blind test, etc. The location is behind the Polres, you have to enter from the alley right of the Polres. Here you have to pay 22 grands as fee. Now you need to go to the Polres. There, you need to pay 30 grands for insurance. For C-Class license, an accident which causing death or disability will recieve 2 millions from the insurance. After those two, you need to pay 60 grands for the administration fee to extend your driving license. You need to fill out the form, and then collect it to the administrator, wait for your turn to take the photo for your driving license, and.. it’s done!! you just have to wait a few moments for your driving license to finished. It took only 45 minutes to extend your driving license. It’s fast enough for something you have to do once in 5 years isn’t??

Updated 17/02: again i went to Polres Bekasi, and accompanied pa sopir and n3xtg3n. There’s one thing you need to know though, you may proceed the driving license without paying for the insurance. It gave you a 30 grands less to pay for, giving a total of 82 Gs for extending your driving license. Also, for people who want to obtain the driving license, the difference is only 15 Gs for the admin fees (total of 127 Gs with insurance). I haven’t tried to obtain it with the legal way, so i can’t tell you exactly what to do, but AFAIK, you will need to pass the exam test, both practice and written, and probably need around a week of process. (it’s not like you will do the test right away in the same day i guess) There is of course another solution which is the “fastest and easiest” way, but you will need around 350 Gs and an hour of process to obtain the license. It is far more expensive, but if it is only for an hour rather than a week, i guess many people will do it with the second solution.. That’s life, that’s my country..

Intel® Atom™ Processor N450: Radical Changes on Netbook

Intel® Atom™ N270/280 to Intel® Atom™ Processor N450/N470 Architecture


The scheme show us the architecture changes from long based Intel FSB to Intel DMI, by integrating Northbridge tasks, such as onboard graphics and memory controller into Processor. This  bring to lower power usage since there’s only 2 chips left. Just like Intel 1156 with P55 chipset. With onboard graphics integrated in the processor, there’s no need for additional onboard graphics chipset such nVidia ION, which surely use more power. Hence, the new onboard graphics GMA3150 seems not getting much better than previous GMA950. the processor does have about 10% increase in performance. But for me the aim of this improvement is only to decrease the bill of material, so to speak this kind of architecture will be getting more cheaper. But by doing so, the user also get benefit by having a less power usage (from 3 to 2 chips) which lead to higher battery life for netbook. It’s almost the same battery performance against the Z520 with US15W (2 chips with Northbridge with Southbridge in one chip) which use a total about 4.5W.

A Little Walk to Bekasi Square

Today i planned to bring my brother’s Nokia E75 to NCC to repair it’s firmware. after googling i found out there’s also a NCC in Bekasi Square.. Why not in Metropolitan Mall you say? because there’s always a big queue there. It’s good to have a walk in a mall, since i also want to watch a movie, and there they shows Sang Pemimpi.. just what i wanted to watch (since Sherlock Holmes not yet available in Bekasi).

Just what i wanted, there’s not even a queue in NCC Bekasi Square, simple talk, and the CS asked to return in an hour.. though they will also sent a SMS if the phone fixed. so i went to 21 cineplex and buy the ticket.. a bit waiting, but then i’m a bit late for the shows.. my phone clock was 20 minutes late.. :( well it’s not really late though, the story was just only begun. For me, the movie was top rated. it has good meaning, good storyline, an art should i say.. there’s some flaw though, they (the producer) was unable to completely visualize the time of the story. The license plate number is one of the example.

After watching the movie, i went to NCC. Well the worst i ever want to hear does happened.. The CS told me that the phone was unsucessfuly flashed, so they had to reflash it again.. so i wait for another 30 minutes. after then, the CS again told me that they were unable to fix it now. so i have to pick it up tomorrow (if they able to got it right of course). Though i don’t think they will able to fix it. If they were unable, they said they had to sent it to Level 3 (wow!! so there should be level 1 eh??) and it will took more time, about 2-3 weeks.. well i should’ve known better, since i also tried to flash it with ovi more than twice but was unable to do that in the first place. hope they don’t crash the phone.

Things Has Getting Bad.. Really Bad Lately

In this new year, many unfortunate things happened to me. Yesterday, just when i returned from Bali i lost my moto-calculato-rola in the bus which i used for my XL number. Ain’t gonna make it a big fuss since i absolutely sure it should be in the bus, but if it isn’t so then... But today i just lost my MSI Wind U100 which supposed to be left in pa sopir’s car. I forgot to take it out of his car yesterday since it was already late. But in the morning i remembered, and try to contact him. By the noon he called and told me that he got his side window crashed, and seems someone took the netbook also. It’s not only the netbook, there’s also a sata/ata to usb converter and my micro sd card reader which i used as flash drive there. But the weird thing is, both things i lost isn’t far from my small black bag i used to put all the cellphone chargers and my kit.. Sayonara then for good.. Just Pray for my Brother to get well soon..

23 Hours of Life: Haven't slept yet since returned from Bali

Back to usual life, i continue developing pa sopir's game center. The deployment seems unsucessful. I haven't found the real problem yet, but i just too tired.. Need some rest. I hope i could make a brief guide later on about computer software and os deployment after finished this job.
Yet i have to learn how to crimp the RJ-45, since pa sopir's the one who've been crimping all the time. I also needed to learn how to deploy a microtic unit which run under linux environment. Well.. Soon i'll try to learn both, but all i need right now just.. Rest.. Zzzz

Happy New Year 2010 AD

As the title above says, i just want to say happy new year to everyone. A little bit late i guess, since i was feeling unwell on the new year eve, but it shouldn't be a problem now.. :)
Not so good trip since two days before i went to Bali, i noticed my upper lip was hurt by itself.. This aphthous ulcer is killing me during the trip. A bit bored since i also went to Bali about halfyear before. But with different persons and different locations, the trip experience does differ than before. For example there's cs and dagor's brother with their family. There's also my uncle, auntee, and my cousins. This time i don't take much picture, so i can't upload it to my blog.
