It's worth to try....Ubuntu

Assalamualaikum & gd evening,

Hello everyone...looks like i have da opportunity to update my blog again. Yeah, since i'm on holiday rite now, i've a bunch of free times. So, for today post, just wanna promote more about linux ubuntu Operating System (OS).

Windows developed my Microsoft or other word, we can say as 'Michael-soft' company, has a highly influenced in our beloved country, Malaysia. So, that's why, most of the computer user in Malaysia just know Windows as their OS. Their way of thinking have been narrowed as there's only 1 OS that exist in the cyber world, which is WINDOWS.

There're even some of my friends who don't really understand what is OS....what a pity. Not their fault actually. It is because of the computer/notebook vendor itself. Nowadays, if u buy a desktop/ laptop, it will be pre-installed by Windows OS. So, this is why, most of us just knew Windows as the only OS that exists.

That's why in this post, i want to stressed out that there's another OS that exists & i want to focus more on Linux Ubuntu. Maybe when i said linux, there's some of u who think about programming or those complicated stuff. Don't worry, there's still a linux for a pro & for a beginner too. As for beginner or who i called a newbie, u should use the ubuntu distro. Not exactly for newbie only, even an intermediate user like me....ehem2, =).

I'm also using Ubuntu.

Ubuntu is a user-friendly distro+it has more attractive desktop customization compared to windows (i will stress bout this later). Plus since linux is an open source, all of the distro including ubuntu gained benefits from it, which is free. There is no need to pay for each software as all of u SHOULD DO in windows. Pay a hundreds ringgit to buy Microsoft office, antivirus and many more. Do u?

Gmbar hiasan...

So, back to what i'm gonna focus about....desktop customization. Most of computer user loves to make their desktop looks beautiful, pretty, nice and many more. So, why not try using ubuntu. Not just wallpaper and screensaver, but ubuntu have added a special setting to adjust your desktop to your own taste. You can use animation on your desktop.
Below are some screenshot that i've taken to prove it....enjoy!

My dual boot option, GRUB image.
Ubuntu Sabily and Windows 7

Start-up page

Wobbly effect...

Water effect....can windows do this?

Paint fire on the desktop

Change from a workspace to another....
U can have as many desktop as u want in a single pc

Extra :
piss off!!!

There's no need for antivirus

If u are interested, u can have a try, either u want to download it by urself, or ask for a live dvd, it's FREE!!! For further inquiries, u should check out the Ubuntu Sabily official webpage or blogspot at :

Or you can download the ISO file by urself HERE

p/s : not to forget, i've published my own post about on how to download & install sabily before. U can check it out HERE

Free live dvd that i ordered.....u can have one too!!!

The choice is in ur hand....
Still confius?
Don't forget that u still have a 3rd option, dual boot

Well, i think this is enough for now. Don't be shy to ask me anything. Enjoy.....

My everyday dream

Assalamualaikum and good evening to all readers,

I'm a car maniac. I admit, sometimes i'm too obsessed to car. Even while searching for parking, i'm focusing on the car rather than to search for a place to park. Still, it didn't dissappoint me since i often got a parking, maybe lucky. All i can do right now is just buying all those cars....opps, i mean car magazines and just imagine myself being inside of those luxury, sporty, classy and most important, EXPENSIVE cars!!! Top Gear, Malaysian Evo, Get@Car, & etc. Those are all in my must-buy-magazine list.

Some of my magazines collection in my room

Eventhough i'm addicted to cars (kinda sport & luxury cars! Not a normal, common car that can easily seen on the street) There's still only 1 kind that attract me the most. The feeling of floating weightlessness - is exactly how it felt when driving the Nissan R35 GT-R (i never drive it before, just read from a magazine). With a 650hp while reaching horizontal terminal velocity, it really feels like flying.

My dream car is Nissan Skyline GT-R R35

The reason is because/maybe the important aspect is the price. It doesn't cost 1M or above as most of sport cars should, so hopefully, Insya Allah, 1 day i could afford to buy it.

I did it....12km Marathon

Assalamualaikum & good evening to all readers,

On sunday, 19/12/2010, My friends and I participated in MALAKOFF, Kuala Lumpur Marathon run held at Bukit Kiara Equestrian and Country Resort. Quite a numerous amount of students who participated in it. For your information, this is an open competition which consists of 7 km and 12 km. Most of us, JAD students took part in 7km marathon. However, I, challenge myself to participate in the 12km run.

From my point of view :
"This is an open tournament, 7km is quite a short distance for someone's professional. So, maybe most of the participant would sprint and maintain their speed throughtout the track. If it's true, there would be definitely no chance for me to win."

As a conclusion, i enter the 12km run with a hope that i can maintain my normal speed (not too fast, not too slow) and the most important, don't stop even once. Because once stopped, feels like "bestnya brjaln je" @lazy to continue jog. Thus, we tend to choose to walk. (that's my opinion).

Furthermore, i want to try to break my self-record in long distance. Before this, my record was 10km which was in my secondary school.

So, below are some pictures during the MALAKOFF Kuala Lumpur 2010. (unfortunately, there're no picture of me personally)

Start time for 12km : 7.15 am,
while 7km : 7.30 am

さかつめさん、one of the TA (Teacher assistant) in JAD.
He participated in 7km

12km medal for finishing the race within time limit

Back view of the pewter medal

My personal record :
Starting time :
7.15 am
Finishing time :
8.15 am
Duration :
60 minutes

I think it's enough for now....thanks for reading. =)

JADの皆さん、マラソンのことお疲れさま。全員、U1の学生たち、先輩たちと TAたち、
"finishing line"まで走って、おめでとうございました。

p/s : I'm in the middle, at the front line
