I feel like I bring my laptop everywhere

Wherever I bring my cellphone, I feel like I bring my laptop everywhere. Thanks to Opera that invented Opera Link, a technology that connect my laptop to my cellphone. I can easily add bookmark, notes and speed dial on my laptop (using Opera browser) and then I can access them using my cellphone, and vice versa.

Here is an example of how Opera Link ease my life. When I was in a bus, I read some exciting news but I was out of concern because the bus was crowded. So what I did was bookmarking the URL into my cellphone using Opera Mini. Later, I would be able to open the mentioned URL directly using my laptop. I don't even need to 'transfer' the data between cellphone and laptop, it's done automatically. :up:

It can also synchronizes notes, Speed Dials, and bookmark between your laptop and PC or to any other device with Opera installed in it.

One day, my friend asked me about the progress of my job (I always write my job's progress in Opera notes). I didn't bring my laptop and my cellphone was running out its battery so I couldn't use Opera Mini to read them.

It's also impossible to back home to pick my laptop. So I borrowed his laptop, logged into my Opera Link account using any available browser in his laptop.

Voila, my bookmarks, notes and Speed Dials appeared directly on the web so I could access them using my friend's laptop without any additional software or setting. It's amazing man!

All we have to do to use these great service is an account on My Opera. Although it's free but we'll get a blog, photo gallery, 1 GB file storage and access to any Opera services available in the world. :yes:

Carakan, Opera’s Javascript Engine

February 9, 2009 | Browsers, Javascript | , , , , , ,

OperaA few days ago, Opera Software announced their newly born javascript engine for their future web browser. The engine’s named Carakan, the name was taken from Javanese ancient alphabet. Carakan is pronounced as cha-ra-kan, as cha in charm word. There is another name for javanese alphabet, hanacaraka, but carakan seem fit to this newly born javascript engine.

Why Carakan? Based on their FAQ page, carakan is real javanese letter/script. So the engine named Carakan will be the true javascript, or the purest javascript engine. Sound cool.

I and Agung were curious that the name carakan was from Bruce Lawson. We read his blog post about proper java script, there is a picture of original javanese alphabet there. Well, no matter who get the idea for the name, I proud that Opera named their javascript engine as carakan.

At the same time, they also announced Vega, Opera’s new hardware accelerated vector graphics library.

Carakan, Engine Javascript dari Aksara Jawa

February 6, 2009 | Opera | , , , , , , , ,

Opera Software baru saja merilis sebuah engine Javascript baru untuk browser mereka di masa depan, engine Javascript yang baru itu diberi nama Carakan. Yang menarik adalah nama “Carakan” ini berasal dari penamaan sistem alfabet Jawa, hanacaraka atau biasa disebut tjarakan (carakan).

Kenapa menggunakan nama alfabet Jawa? Karena Opera ingin engine ini menjadi engine yang njawani, istilah kerennya adalah “it’s the purest javascript”.

Jika Anda menganggap saya mengada-ada, silahkan Anda baca sendiri FAQ-nya. Juga bisa download wallpaper resminya lho. Saya jadi makin cinta sama Opera 😀

How to make Zenwalk Linux more compact

November 21, 2008 | Technical Stuffs | , , , , , , , ,

I’m a daily user of Zenwalk Linux and love it very much for the simplicity and their philosophy of one application for one task. The ISO is only 400+ megabytes and only require 2gb of harddrive space for full installation. And hey, it run fast on Pentium 3 machine.

But I found my own way to make this linux become smaller than before. Everytime I finished installing this linux on my machines, I always remove IceDove, IceWeasel, Transmission (BitTorrent client) and GnView.

As replacement for IceDove, IceWeasel and Transmission I installed Opera browser. This free browser is not only a web browser. It’s an email client, IRC client, BitTorrent client and also feed reader. Very great.

The last, I replaced GnView with GPicView. It’s simpler and faster.
