The Craze on End of the Year Sales - Books

Final2016_Books

How much did I blow so far is unbelievable. This time around are more on about getting something useful. Yes, books! I can’t believe myself would ever bother to buy books that I don’t usually like to read. Age probably really changes part of me and of course it’s about keeping up. Three study books from Microsoft Press Store (just arrived from FedEx) and two Richard Dawkins from Book Depository.

If I couldn’t find a way to change my current IT Technician position then you better stay and get some knowledge upgrades. When Microsoft Press Store offer 55% coupon for all the paperback books and eBooks, this is something I can’t overlook. The timing of these offers probably the best so far because both Exam Ref 70-698 Installing and Configuring Windows 10 and Troubleshooting with the Windows Sysinternals Tools (2nd Edition) were published two months ago. Nice~!

The last one took me a while to decide was Windows Server 2012 Inside Out. I previously attended the course (I failed) three years ago and continue hands on deploying to the market today. Continuing support and optimizing the operating system are the most important part of my daily job. Despite the book was more than three years without any further update. I felt it’s best to have around with me. I just had to say wow, total 1381 pages to read.

Now, are you having a hard time looking for certain books and waiting for discount? Look no further, Book Depository might become one of your favorite online bookstores. I am really surprised with the huge selections titles available at their store. The wildest part is able to get free worldwide shipping deal.

Since I already brought three Microsoft books, why not get some controversy books to read? Yup, ‘The God Delusion’ and ‘The Magic of Reality: How We Know What's Really True’ books. Got a great deal from the bookstore and in case you wonder, these two books are highly recommended by tons of people (not just atheist) around the world. Sadly, they are still separately on the way from UK. I do hope one day I might able to get Richard Dawkins to sign the books.

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.
