Blogger: Saves Your Drafts Automatically!

Friday, May 18, 2007

Don't you just hate it when you feel excited on writing a new post, and suddenly your browser crashed ?! Well, that happens to me sometimes, and if it does, you'll likely to lose the mood to write a post :|

Well, today Blogger made an announcement to handle this problem ;) the Auto-savory Blogger Posting

When you look at the bottom of the screen, there's some notification about it ;)

This a very nice one from Blogger ^^ for us.

And another thing is
On top of this, we're revamping the post editor's keyboard shortcuts to make them a bit more sane. Now Ctrl-P publishes, Ctrl-S saves a draft, and Ctrl-D switches from published to draft. We moved Preview over to Ctrl-Shift-P.

Great job Blogger ^^

Look Around The Sky

Wednesday, May 09, 2007

I never had a chance to visit a planetarium. There's a nice planetarium in Bandung, but i never visited it :P So i never knew what it felt or what it looks like inside a planetarium, all i know is that the planetarium is some kind of dome-shaped building, that have a projector which project skies and stars etc. in the ceiling (and this i know from a friend's story too).

And by some chance, my favourite Flasher Mr. Paul Neave from apparantely have made a simulation of a planetarium :) you can really felt the dome-shaped on the ceiling ! :)

With it's small sized flash, this planetarium is VERY FAST to load ! After you're in the planetarium, you can move around your mouse to see the ceiling ;) to stop/move just click your mouse :) it really felt just like when you were looking up :D You can change date and time, and also the longitude and latitude. Just experiment ;)

As for this moment, the information provided are a very basic one, the name of the constelation, the all positions (those with the tude :P).

At least, now i know where to go when i wanna see a planetarium :) and it's just a click away too :D

Trip to Pulau Dewata (Part I)

Monday, May 07, 2007

In Indonesia Bali was often called as "Pulau Dewata" or "The Island Of The Gods".

I had the chance to go to Bali from April 24 night until April 29 :) on the day, that my blogging routines stopped for almost a full week :P And because it was a "vacation" although i wanted to get my hands on the internet to blog my activity in Bali, but it seems that i always got some trouble to do so :P

So, as i promised i'm here to give you an overview of Bali ^^

On April 24, around 20:00 (i forgot the exact time :P) Jakarta local time, we took a flight to Bali. There were 6 of us, me, my girlfriend, her cousin, her cousin's boyfriend, and another female friends of her.

And fyi, that was my FIRST FLIGHT ^^ hehe.. since it was the first time, i was in a very good mood, hyper-excited ! That lasted from before i entered the plane, and it soon ended up when it took off the ground, another feeling came to replace all the excitement. I was scared ! My god ! Never thought that those moments made me scared (well a little bit :P) I got all the nervous, scare, uncomfortable during the flight, especially when the planes are going shaky-shaky :P

But then after some time, i regain my calmness again, all of this was due to my caring girlfriend, that kept me talking, and talking, and so i forget all those fear :P

The night view from the window above, is BEAUTIFUL ! It was like seeing a carpet full of jewelry, as the plane move towards, the clouds are slowly disappearing, bringing feast to the eye, a view of lights from above :) So BEAUTIFUL ! ^^ But then again, maybe it was because it's my first time :P

Anyhow, the flight took about 1,5 hours, but there's a time different between Jakarta and Bali, Bali is +1 hours from Jakarta, so it seems like we flew almost 2,5 hours :P

Above is the plane we took, Air Asia ^^ Cheap flight :P So cheap, that we don't get a "seat number", my girlfriend told me that, usually we got a "seat number" if we took an airplane, but since this was a cheap plane, so we didn't got it. So when we entered the plane, all people immediately choose their seat.

My girlfriend is the one on the left, along with her 2 female friends :)

That was all the happy faces, filled with excitement, when we landed our feet on the ground of Bali ^^


Day 01

The next morning, the first trip is to go to see "Barong Dance". The dance, was a traditional dance, along with a story about Barong and Rangda. Barong is the God of Good, while Rangda is the Evil one.

This is Barong taken with my poor S88 handphone :P

Barong is some kind of magical creature that took a form a beastly creature, with four legs, played by two man, the one on the head, and the other play the tail.

The battle between Barong and Rangda

The story tells of Good vs. Evil, is eternal, no one wins, since both are equally strong. So the battle will never ends. I had the script of the Dance, which i was planning to wrote the summary from it. But unfortunately i forgot to bring it with me :|

After that, we go to Nusa Dua Beach ;) and we'll see more of it on the next post ;)
so stay tune ^^
