Purchase Digital Content Online

The digital content started becoming more popular nowadays. I’m not sure how many of you actually purchase your songs, movies, games or any other digital content products online. But I do know its becoming popular and the easier way to save money and time on shipping. Well, not in Brunei because we have many pirated stuffs sell here that previously mention almost 98% according to the local Government. Right now, I believe there are huge drop on that figures on the market today. Thanks to the internet especially the bittorrent program that can help everyone can downloaded (il) legally and saved more money. I am one of them, honestly. ^^;;;

But change I did however, starting to purchasing original programs and support the markets (only the title I like). I don’t really like buying digital content much online because our Brunei internet speed are slow (always) and ended up getting the retail version instead to avoid the frustrations. So far Steam (Valve) is the best one as I had used. Until last week, I decided to make my first online purchase for Lost Planet: Extreme Condition PC game direct from Steam (Valve) that hit with dirt cheap from the weekend promotion for US$4.99 (B$7.xx). The game weight more than 3GB, so it might take probably a week for me to finished download with only full speed 65.1kb per second. >_> I’m not really such a hurried person playing the games but it just about my spending habits in the end lately.

What's my next purchase going to be soon? I know my next wish list is going to release in Steam these month call Red Alert 3: Uprising. I’m not sure about the pricing yet but EA doesn't want to release the retail version so probably I wait for better discount before purchasing it.

Brunet SMTP Server Under Global Blacklist?

Based on my finding, yes it is. I already started noticing this issue starting last year December when my users starting to complain about their email messages not reaching several existing contacts. Slowly things get even uglier between February and March, the messages would deliver into junk in Outlook automatically. The 3rd party email like Gmail services follow, sending them into SPAM folder. Even the Barracuda Spam Firewall sees as threat and start rejecting. As far I know, my company experiences the worst when the email messages almost completely go AWOL in 3rd week last month. The 4th week, the messages all stuck in the queue for unknown reason and getting relay messages. We found out the local domain name suddenly no longer working and tried using smtp.brunet.bn as temporary solution. It didn’t work either. In the end, we had to convince the management to purchase 3rd party SMTP service to get the whole thing running. It’s not like we did not investigate the physical server, M…

Guide on Registering Brunei Citizenship Examination (Update#1)

I never thought registering Brunei Citizenship examination are really fucking inconvenienced. Worst, I don't see blogger write about it either in the web search telling us how and what to bring. So to make this easy, I decided to write the guide for my future reference and hopefully able to help you fellow PR. Avoid Waste of TimeFirst of all, people may told you to register in the capital usually way faster. It's true but my question is, do you really need to be that hurry? Bahasa Brunei are not easy to learned (even most local Malay) and remembering every details of this country takes lots of effort studying. Unless you already a good confidence in speaking and writing, you may go ahead. Still, if you live in Belait or Tutong or even Temburong district. My suggestion go for the nearest and shortest route to the immigration building for registration. The reason I recommend that way are nobody knows when the law and rules will change every years in Brunei (as well announced b…

Brunei Has a Porno Celebrity?

That was really unexpected information found in Wikipedia and surprise to know we have a porno celebrity in our country. Her name is Jayna Oso, was born in Brunei and raised at Hawaii according to the Wiki. She is really quite popular in the states and not to mention hardcore porn star.“This Photo belong to Shiroi Kaze”I don’t really know if that is true after I decided to look through her profile in the official porn site. It somehow didn’t state that she was from Brunei instead they only mention about Malaysia. I think this might be a mistake or something and probably her mother was Malaysian. It just my guess and only she herself know the answer. Well, if you want to dug deeper, you might want to visit her My Space and drop her a question.
