My Short Story (Fiction)

Well, the one thing that I always do to waste a time beside chatting with people and browsing everything in the net is writing something (it may be novel, short story, blogging, etc).

I like writing, I like reading, then I pour everything on my mind into some novel and short story. For the first time it's hard to build the main idea of its concept bout what I write. But when I mishandle the concept, I find the undefined words to put on the script. It always happened when I write everything. Not only that, sometimes I mishandle the concept. What I want is just pour everything what I see, what I listen, what I imagine, into some abstract integrity unit. Then, when I look up the whole script, I feel satisfy.

If you want to know about some of them, maybe I just give the short story I have made.
Here it is:

  1. Bandung got me crazy!
  2. Indigo
  3. Te Quiero
The short story I published uses Indonesian language, so I'm sorry if you don't understand about the language.

PS: Don't forget to give a comment ^^

Job Interview Questions

Maybe this time is a moment for you to be called by some company to do interview. Do you feel nervous? It's common, but don't scared. Maybe the following question link will accompany you with the best answer you have ever had in your interview.

Here is some link about the probable question job interview that is always asked by interviewer :

50 Ways to Make Money On The Internet

is tips is taken from http://mymoneyishere.blogspot.com/

I did a little bookmark scrub this morning and thought I would share the remaining content of my "Online Money" folder. To warn you, there are certain things that I don't like and never bookmark so:

What's NOT included: Taking Surveys, Get Paid to Surf the Internet, MLM, Programs with a ton of negative user experiences (based on researching forums, Googling them, etc.), Contest Sites, "Buy my DVD, CD, Audiobook", etc.

What IS included: Things you can use to legitimately make money online - Everything from Getting Paid to review software to good ole' Adsense.

Anyway, here you go:
  • Adbrite - Sell space on your site for text ads

  • Amazon Seller - Sell your stuff on Amazon

  • Associated Content - If you write a story, how-to, rant, etc. you can submit it to them and they will pay you $3-$20 per article if they like it

  • Azoogleads - Another ad program. They do have some decent companies lined up as advertisers. You provide space, they'll provide an ad.

  • BidVertiser - PPC (pay per click) program with a low $10 payout amount.

  • Bravenet - These guys offer a ton of services for webmasters and blog owners. Although I feel like I was spammed for a while, it has ceased and they'll pay you $1 for each person you send over

  • Blog - Start a blog and consistently write excellent content. With good ad placement, you may make some money.

  • Business Opportunities Blog - I am adding this because I am a subscriber to their site and I see ideas everyday that could result in making money. A lot of the ideas pertain to online businesses. If you are an aspiring entrepreneur, it's a good reference.

  • Cafepress - You provide a design, they'll toss it on a T-Shirt, Hat, etc. No upfront costs. Get a free online shop and promote your products on your website.

  • Chitika - Their eMiniMalls service has shown great results for many Bloggers and site owners. You choose a keyword and they show relevant products on your site using a pretty unique interface.

  • Clickbank - Another Affiliate Program site with 10,000+ products to advertise

  • ClicknWork - Get paid $5-$150 per hour for basically doing freelance work on a per-assignment basis. You have to pass a pretty tough test to get in.

  • Clicksor - These are the guys that generate contextual ads on sites that show up when you hover over a double-underlined word.

  • Commission Junction - If you have a site, you can join Commission Junction. Once enrolled for free, you can choose companies whose ads are pertinent to your site. Companies have the ultimate say on working with you. There are easily over 1,000 companies to choose from here.

  • CreamAid - For blogs only, advertisers provide you with a topic and you write about it on your site. To do this, you have to install a flash widget into your blog post. The more people you bring into the conversation through the widget, the more you get paid. It's difficult to explain.

  • eefoof - Think of it as YouTube + Flickr + Music. You add original content and they pay you based on the visitors you attract.

  • Ether - If you are an expert on something, Ether provides a way for people to pay you to talk about it in a one-on-one setting. If you want to charge $250/hr, that's fine. You have to do all the advertising so you should have a blog or site already established.

  • eBay- Come on, you know what this is. Gather your junk and sell it!

  • eBay Stores - If you have a real store and want to sell your stuff online, this is a decent option to get you started.

  • ELance - Name gives it away. Programmers, Codes, Web Designers, Writers, Editors, can look for freelance opportunities.

  • Feedvertising - This is an arm of Text Link Ads and is currently only good for Wordpress 2.0 Users. This does me no good currently, but as you can guess, they place ads in your feed(s).

  • Feedburner - Not only are they the best place to house your feeds, they will also add ads to your feed and website. You get paid per impression.

  • Google Adsense - Come on, you don't need an explanation; these ads are all over the place. Google displays relevant ads based on your site's content

  • Google Adwords - Create simple text ads and choose keywords that determine when they are displayed. This is where the Adsense Content comes from. You do not need a site for this.

  • SHUT DOWN Google Answers - If you are good, Google will pay you to answer questions in your specialty. Questions all come from normal people like you and me. You can get paid $2.50+ per answer you provide.

  • H3.com - Get paid to fill jobs. Commissions range from $50-$5,000. It all depends on how tough the job is to fill and how desperate the hiring company is. This is another one that's tough to explain.

  • Indeed.com - Add their job board to your site. They then post jobs based on the geographic location of visitors and the position types you pre-select. I tried it and I they continually report that I sent 0 visitors and I know that's not right. Nevertheless, I may have an isolated problem so they make the list.

  • InnerSell - If you have a customer that wants to buy something you cannot sell, you can sell the lead here.

  • Jellyfish - This is a shopping site that pays you a percentage of the purchases made by people you refer. They are not part of a wider affiliate program so you do it direct.

  • Jigsaw - It's a pretty flaky model but if you have a Rolodex full of good contacts, you can sell them here. I can't make sense of it but it looks like you get $0.10 per profile.

  • KarmaOne - They are basically a recruiting website. If you fill one of their jobs by finding a good candidate, you'll get paid anywhere from $50-$12,000. It all depends on how desperate the hiring company is.

  • LinkShare.com - If you have a site, you can join Linkshare. Once enrolled for free, you can choose companies whose ads are pertinent to your site. Companies have the ultimate say on working with you. Like Commission Junction, there are a ton of companies waiting to evaluate your site.

  • Microsoft Adcenter - Bid on keywords and Microsoft places your created ads then they are searched for. This is similar to Google Adwords. You do not need a site for this.

  • Overstock.com - Sell your stuff on Overstock.com

  • Pageflakes - This is a company that developed a user-defined Ajax homepage to show feeds, flickr photos, and a ton of other things. Think of it as a replacement for your Google Homepage. Anyway - they'll pay you $1 per referral that you send over. They are not part of a wider affiliate program so you do it direct. This one is pretty simple.

  • Pay Per Post - I don't agree with this model entirely but they have advertisers that will pay you to write about their products on your blog.

  • Pheedo - If you have an RSS feed, run it through Pheedo. Like Feedburner, they can include ads into your feed and if you really become large, advertisers will pay a premium for you to show their ads.

  • Shareasale.com - I've never really worked with them but I do have an account. They are similar to Commission Junction and Linkshare however they seem to have lower tiered companies with advertising offers.

  • Shoemoney - This is a blog that can teach you a ton on making money online. I've spent hours reading his old stuff.

  • Software Judge - They will pay you up to $50 to review software.

  • Text Link Ads - I have never made a dime here but I know people that have. You can earn by sending advertisers to them or by selling spots on your site. You must have a real site or blog to do this - nothing on a shared domain (i.e. /blogspot).

  • Vibrant Media - Don't bother unless your site has 500,000 page views of text based content a month. If you have that readership, these are the guys that display bubble box ads to underlined words on your site.

  • West Work At Home Agent - Not entirely online but this is worth a mention because it's won awards and is very legitimate. If you are an at-home Mom or free-lancer without work, you should check this out.

  • Yahoo! Merchant Solutions - This is a pretty simple and cheap way to create an online store

  • ReviewMe - In order to participate, you must have a blog and it has to be active. Companies go to ReviewMe to advertise a product and ReviewMe asks their members to write a review of the product in exchange for cash. In regards to ethics, ReviewMe mandates that the blogger/site owner indicate that they are being compensated to write the review AND the advertiser cannot insist on a positive review. This is the opposite of other similar services that don't mandate trustworthy behavior. Ultimately the goal is to spread the word honestly. You can expect to earn $20 - $200 per review that you write.

  • Revver - I have no idea how I missed this on the first list. You basically upload your video to Revver and they attach an ad to it. You get 50% of what the ad makes. If any of you have been on YouTube or other video sites, you can easily understand that some videos, even bad ones at times, go viral and thousands of people see it, and your ad! If you want to see a sample of this, here is a link to Revver's 'most watched' page.

  • Vizu - I really like the sound of this one and may try it on Dumb Little Man. Instead of putting ads on your site, you insert polls. You get paid based on the CPM (cost per thousand) that you set. The better positioning on your site, the better you will do. The nice part of this is that everything is embedded into your site allowing visitors to participate without leaving. That is key. PS - I learned about this site today from Digital Inspiration.

  • Break.com - Upload your videos and pictures all day. If they like them and place them on their homepage, they will pay you $400 for original videos (you know, snowboarding off a house onto a trampoline and breaking your arm, etc) and up to $2000 for short films. They also have other random contests that pay out $50 a picture.

  • CelltradeUSA: Refer your visitors to CelltradeUSA. I wrote about them recently, but they offer an affiliate program now. In short, if people need to get out of a cell phone contract, cell trade helps them by matching them with someone that wants to enter into a phone contact without all the fees.

  • Bitwine - If you are an expert or even mildly knowledgeable on something, Bitwine provides a way for you to set a per minute rate and charge people to talk to you in a private meeting space. Bitwine is currently in "beta" so they are waiving fees which at some point will most likely be a % of your earnings. This sounds similar to Ether, which is a service we discussed in July.

  • Clickbooth - Clickbooth is a site that blog owners or site owners can join to place Cost Per Action ads on their site. It has a good base of advertisers and is similar to Commission Junction or Linkshare.

  • LoudLaunch - This service has not officially launched yet but it's something to watch. I first learned about this on Micro Persuasion and the consensus seems to be that it is similar to Review Me (which is on this list).

  • Rent-A-Coder: As I type this, there are 2,299 requests on this site. These requests are opportunities for coders to earn money. Take on a project, get it done and get paid. I like this concept because Rent-A-Coders doesn't get paid a thing until you do therefore it is in their best interest to keep you busy.

  • Shopping.com - Add widgets to your site that display products based on keywords. For the ultra-skilled, you can even customize the entire user experience by tapping into their API. I guarantee you've seen sites with this installed and you never realized it.

Opera mini got stuck!!!

It began from 2 days ago, when I tried to browse internet via my handphone. I always use Opera mini v4.1 to browse. But when I tried and tried again, my Opera mini got stuck. For the first time, I thought that it was just because of the weak signal of my GPRS. But when I tried it again next day, I felt suspicious. Then i just said, "No, it is not about the signal, there's something else that causes I cannot browse anything from my handphone".

Then I told my friends about my problem. I let them try accessing internet through their handphone (they use Opera mini to browse). The same problem occured on their handphone. I was still dissatisfied, then I called my friends in another city and get them browse internet through their handphone. Unfortunately, they had the same problem like me. So, from this fact, I know that it's not the BTS signal problem because there's barely possibility to have the same problem with our different BTS in two city. Then I concluded that the problem was not in signal and not in handphone itself.

I'm still curious. What happened to my handphone???

I tried to use ebuddy and ymtiny application to do chat in mobile phone, and there was success. Wow, now i know the problem source. It is from Opera mini. So, what happened to Opera mini??? I'm absolutely don't know....

Until now, my Opera mini got stuck, cannot connect to internet, and I wonder why. Are there any maintenance on Opera mini??? Or I'm just a fool which blind of technology so that I cannot operate Opera mini as easy as you??? Please help me ...

Tips To Be Fat

Hooo, here i am, still be a skinny guy, want to engage you all who has the same problem like me, to do FAT PROGRAM. The listed point below will show you how to make a FAT inside your flesh.

1. Do sport
By sport, our body will be healthy, it stimulates the body part to be functionally work well. Try to do sport 1 time in a week.

2. Drink milk
Beside making healthy, the milk is able to make us fat, especially full cream. It is suggested to drink full cream milk 2 times a day.

3. Chew our food
When the food goes to our mouth, don't be lazy to chew it until flabby. We must do this in order to help bilge do digestion, moreover when we eat undigestable food, because there are no more teeth in other parts of our body except in our mouth.

4. Eat regularly
Everyday we have to eat our main food regularly. Always have a breakfast in the morning, have lunch on time, and then have a dinner. And among of them, we can eat all the small and light food (I mean snack, heuheuheu)

5. The kind of food
The kind of food we consume is measured by our activity. If we are a mobile person (EMANGNYA HAPE???), so eat everything which contains carbohydrate or fat. When the carbohydrate or fat composition is over the limit of what we need, they are will be stocked in our body, different from the protein which is not be stocked in our body.

6. Check your healthiness
If we had ever been fat before and then become skinny, try to check your healthiness to doctor. If it was not because of the disease, then we can feel the result in a month.

Go or Die???

Recently, I felt stressed out about everything happened in my job. There are so many problems in software development/debugging I work for. I'm a newbie in samsung, so when I'm faced to many problems on hundred-thousand-lines source code, suddenly I feel dizzy, and cannot believe that I am still alive. Maybe for four years I had experienced all kind of programming language. But for this time, I am defeated, I have lost, got terrible asthma, heartache, and many more suffer (is it hyperbole?)

The point is, I am not really already for this job assignment. As for me, the programming language that I handle is what I know for the long time, but it's different. The programming language is used to set DVD-player. During this time, that I know is how to implement software about computer application. It was really really software, but that I handle in my job is related to hardware. How to build software that controls hardware and bla bla bla make me learn so much but my brain was so full depressed (don't imagine that I had hydrocephalus).

The speed of learning about my job was so fast. I think it is too fast for me. I'm sure that I'll be able to manage it. With my partner, Renita (she is my granny, don't talk too much about her, she is so sensitive person), I want to attack the storm, defeat the hazardous ocean that we'll pass. As my granny (Renita) said, "The smooth sea will make an unskilled mariners", so it's a taboo for us to be defeated by erverything.

New Blog

Well, this is my first posting in my new blog. I may be bored about something old, but always trying something new, like this blog. The new thing is not always making me perform something very very brand new, but how I can perform this as well as the old one and deliver it with something different. Do you know what? I use English as my primary language.

Maybe this is the first step for me to learn how to impress my feeling and my experience into my blog in English version. Actually, it's a long time for me to design and plan every detail on my new blog. But it makes me bored when I was always thinking, and thinking, and thinking again about the content detail of the blog. So, now what I thought is to perform my life as usual, such a river bring its water (wew, so poetic).

Well, enough for this talking. I hope you enjoy surfing my blog with my up-to-date story.

PS: I hope you can give any comment too, hehehe...
