We Save Nothing from Trade In

I have been hearing so much noise about trading in your old computer hardware’s for getting a new great price for few months now. Some say you trade in your old CRT and get a free LCD which is absolutely crap information or totally misunderstanding explains from one another. I already look into it and was just Concepts Computer doing the trade in promotion for quite a while.

To be honest, you are simply giving away your CRT and printer away grantee for free in the beginning. I do not know about the projectors since I’m not into this gadget. But it just doesn’t make sense at all, no matter how I look at the trade in price offer to consumers. If I can get a HP AIO printer as low B$100.00 in other computer shops, what’s the point of trading in my dead or old fine working printer for Epson $98.00? Even when I look at the trade in Acer LCD 20” wide monitor price, Netcom Computer offer the same selling the price around B$199.00 (B$188.00 was the previous promotion). What’s the catch here? Are we consumers working CRT monitor worth $10.00 or simply paying just the selling price from the beginning?

I don’t know if this is just a competitions battle plan. But this is to remind you all to survey carefully before sending in your old working or damage junks for trade in. I do not have any ill intention towards Concepts Computer, but this kind of trade in promotion doesn’t seem to convince me worth sending over to recycle.

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 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.
