Building File Server for Home

At first, I was planning to buy a home server or SOHO server for storing data which I recently discover Acer home Server was the best value for my choice. After spending few days thinking, I rather better off building my own because I simply have many left over old working PC parts so I think its kinda waste just storing in my room when I can’t even sell it off. Three PC at least I got so far. One old PC of mine and two from received free from friends.

I already gave one refurnished PC away to one of my cousins because the parent unable to afford one. But I feel so regret it and would rather just donate to the orphan instead or used at my own for Linux. My intentions were giving to them so that they can work on their school projects and also helping them to be more familiar on computer. I can’t believe they are so annoying complaining this and that hoping it is Window Seven. This changes my mind completely and decided to use it for my own until the whole thing die out. I already had done a success repair on one of my motherboard capacitors and waiting for new chassis to assemble it. All will be done on this October once I reached one year with the company.

The question now is what program or OS should I use for file server? For me, FreeNAS will be the first choice for building file server. It’s free and easily to setup within less than ten minute. I really like this FreeBSD and includes many features I needed to manage the server especially it allow to run torrent download directly. Ubuntu (Linux) server is also a really good OS to work as file server too. The only problem it requires to install some programs manually which I read require takes a lot times on configure even require full update. Looking at Brunei internet shitty speed, this going to takes up the whole days.

Right now, I am going to keep saving as much as I can. I still own my friend the graphic card debt so which is why I decided to delay until October. XD Hopefully I am able to settle it on August.

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.
