The Fourth Man

20 04 2008

The other day I talk to my pastor, and we arrive to conversation about what are the type of working people. There are three kind of people according to our conclusion :

  1. The thinker. This is the kind of man who has brilliant idea, innovation, etc about the product. This kind of man sometime could only thinking and not capable to do the job. Usually they work as a consultant, concept maker, and that kind of works.
  2. The worker. This is the kind of man who could implement an idea to a product. They usually could only produce the product without having the capability to think about improvement for the product. Usually they work as worker, labor, and that kind of works.
  3. The marketer. This is the kind of man who could make an ordinary product looks like an extra ordinary product. They could sell almost everything. They have their own way to sell. But usually they are weak on technical things. Usually they work as marketing, property broker, and that kind of works.

We could be one of them or the combination two of them or even all combination. 😀
I myself want to be the fourth man. The man who could gather and organize people with those ability. If I could gather, organize them and make them to use the utmost of their capability, I’ll be a wealthy man. 😀
Some people say the fourth man is “The Entrepreneur”.

What if the world block IP from Indo?

9 04 2008

It’s happening. Lately Indonesia blocking several sites like YouTube, Metacafe, Rapidshare, Multiply, etc. It’s because of those sites contain Fitna movie. Well that’s too bad, because of only one movie the whole sites are being block. I wonder why? Is there no other way out? Is it the only way?

I wonder to myself what will happen if the world (web) block IP from Indo.

  1. No more IM like Y!, MSN, Google Talk, etc.
  2. Viruses are everywhere because the antivirus could not get update.
  3. The news on the internet will be the same as in the newspaper or TV.
  4. No more “helpful” wikipedia.
  5. Internet business will be limited to Indonesian people.
  6. No more new software. Only wait from local programmer.
  7. And more to come.

Is it what we want to be? Internet will not be the same again. 😀





Fitna

7 04 2008

Recently fitna movie become popular especially at Indonesia. Not because it is a good movie but it’s a controversial (according to a lot of people) documenter movie. Department send an ‘ultimatum’ note to block site who has fitna movie. Those sites including YouTube, Rapidshare, Multiply, Metacafe, Myspace, etc. Some of the ISP at Indonesia already block some of those sites and more to come.

The latest news said ” ‘Fitna’ Ada di Google “. Is the department going to block Google too?

Is it the right way? Is there no other way? Do we have to block all the services only because of one movie?

Please find another way. Please.





The Power of Prayer

5 04 2008

I receive mail today and it contain interesting story. I’ve read this story before and might be some of you already read it too. But still I want to share it once again. 😀

Quote1 Louise Redden, a poorly dressed lady with a look of defeat on her face, walked into a grocery store.

She approached the owner of the store in a most humble manner and asked if he would let her charge a few groceries.

She softly explained that her husband was very ill and unable to work, they had seven children and they needed food.

John Longhouse, the grocer, scoffed at her and requested that she leave his store at once.

Visualizing the family needs, she said: “Please, sir! I will bring you the money just as
soon as I can.”

John told her he could not give her credit, since she did not have a charge account at his store.

Standing beside the counter was a customer who overheard the conversation between the two. The customer walked forward and told the grocer that he would stand good for whatever she needed for her family.
The grocer said in a very reluctant voice, “Do you have a grocery list?”

Louise replied, “Yes sir.” “O.K” he said, “put your grocery list on the scales and whatever your grocery list weighs, I will give you that amount in groceries.”

Louise, hesitated a moment with a bowed head, then she reached into her purse and took out a piece of paper and scribbled something on it. She then laid the piece of paper on the scale carefully with her head still bowed.

The eyes of the grocer and the customer showed amazement when the scales went down and stayed down.

The grocer, staring at the scales, turned slowly to the customer and said begrudgingly, “I can’t believe it.”

The customer smiled and the grocer started putting the groceries on the other side of the scales. The scale did not balance so he continued to put more and more groceries on them until the scales would hold no more.

The grocer stood there in utter disgust. Finally, he grabbed the piece of paper from the scales and looked at it with greater amazement.

It was not a grocery list, it was a prayer, which said:

“Dear Lord, you know my needs and I am leaving this in your hands.”

The grocer gave her the groceries that he had gathered and stood in stunned silence.

Louise thanked him and left the store.
The other customer handed a fifty-dollar bill to the grocer and said;

“It was worth every penny of it. Only God Knows how much a prayer weighs.” Quote2

I hope this story will bless your life somehow. God Bless You.





Firefox and Safari

5 04 2008

I use both of these browser. And I really love them. Cheers. To conserve my quota I use Firefox more often. Thanks to the wonderful add-ons (imglikeopera, flashblock, foxyproxy). Even though the new Safari could do this as well via (disable image, disable plugins). Imglikeopera will load/block the image on a web site according to the setting. Flashblock will block all the flash on a web site. I use foxyproxy to change between proxy. I use proxy software from toonel.net to compress my browsing session.

As known by the others, Safari is faster than Firefox. And I love the way it display a web page. It more comfortable to read than within Firefox. But too bad Safari does not include ‘yet ?’ built-in proxy setting with it. So I have to set up the proxy on Internet Options. Safari not ‘yet?’ implement open search feature like Firefox too. Safari only have two built-in search engine (google and yahoo). There is one feature in Safari that I love most. It call Private Browsing. The Private Browsing allow us to surf the web without left any trace of it 😀 .

Well that’s all for now.
