Brunei to takes on Pirated Software’s

After reading the article over at BT, I believe this year we might be seeing new IP law changes in Brunei. Even though it is my responsible doing research which free commercial software can be encourage to deploy by the company. The local companies behaviors today continue to ignore and pirating software without any fear of getting raid.

Yes, I am very concern about this as a IT Support Technician but no longer care if they don't bother to care and listen. I don't really sees much of them taking these seriously and quite pissed off over insisting me to installed pirated programs so this issue had to go direct to the head awaiting for decision.

The raids can be happen anytime and done by anyone who doesn't like the competitors. It already happen three years ago to EcoPrime Networks Sdn Bhd. No one knows how much fine local Microsoft charge for each PC using their counterfeit products. In Malaysia sale of counterfeit law, it's between RM$100,000.00 and up to RM$500,000.00 offense The news mentions the EcoPrime had over 200 units so it's enough to shut down the company entirely for good.

If you are newly start-up local companies, I really encouraged proper planning using all free and genuine software’s. Be warned that TechOne Global not just only distributing Microsoft products, they are now including Adobe products.

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.
