Temporary Linux

Probably more, damn my Corsair memory ram got problem after I ran a test yesterday using Memtest. I already notice some shits going on from the beginning of the year. It just that I decided to ignore it until it gets often serious restarts or crash. It’s funny that it didn’t happen once when I was on gaming. Luckily it got a lifetime warranty so the only thing I needed to do is send it back to US for RMA. It was the farthest country I ever send for warranty. Meh, next time I swear I won’t buy from Corsair products anymore in the future unless they open a center in Asia for easier RMA.

Now, the big problem starts. I’m in low cash and no spare memory to hold Vista memory tortures. Losing 4GB memory is a big issue for me, which means shutting down my PC was a best option rather using a slow ass PC. But the shitty things about me couldn’t live without internet and reading world news. That’s going to annoy me a lot. Without much second thought, I borrow 512MB DDR2 and 160GB SATA HDD to setup a temporary Ubuntu (starting tomorrow) for the time being which is better than without any internet access.

It’s going to be a long month waiting for my RMA return and not knowing how long it might takes to reach US sending from Brunei. It sucks really, because I have been using Windows my whole life. Sudden switching to Linux doesn’t sound fun to me. But I do hope it comes back before Starcraft II release worldwide.

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.
