LCD Baru

monitorAkhirnya setelah diidam-idamkan setelah lama sekali, bisa kebeli juga layar monitor LCD baru.
Begitu dapat honor asisten dari Pak Adi ternyata kayaknya cukup buat beli. Dan dari lab basdat langsung berangkat ke BEC. Setelah keliling-keliling beberapa jam akhirnya dapat yang paling rasional dengan uang yang ada. Tapi tetep aja rupanya masih kurang dikit, yah terpaksa ambil uang. Gyah, senangnya ada barang baru nongkrong di meja komputer. Tapi sial, euy. TV Tuner yang lama ternyata gak bisa buat LCD. Yah, terpaksa minta orang tua lagi deh ujung-ujungnya.
Anyway, mereknya ViewSonic VA1703wb. 17″ Widescreen warna hitam.
Agak-agak gak biasa euy ngeliat widescreen. Resolusinya 1440×900 px. Jadinya terlihat lebar banget semua window. Ngescrollnya juga jadi pegel banget. Untung wheelnya bisa diadjust di Control Panel biar jadi lebih banyak ngescrollnya. Tapi tetep aja. Pertama-tama rada pusing euy mata. Resolusi tinggi dan kontras banget.
Semoga bakal kebiasa.

Motherboard Rusak

Gosh, my computer broke down again…. What a heck!

I thought it was the power supply unit. So I went to BEC carrying my desktop. Why do I carry my desktop if it was the power supply? Umm… I don’t know what was the reason. (Maybe I was quite panic 😛 😛 :P)

Fortunately it was not the power supply, so it was not a waste carrying the desktop. Oh my God!!! My motherboard burned down. Hmmppfff, why it has to be during this busy time!!!! Hell, they need more than a week to repair it (do I have to spend more money to buy new one?)..

And here I am, spending a week without my desktop….

Refreshed!

Although I don’t feel so refreshed at all from the holiday, but my computer does (hope so). This is the only plan I’ve done for the holiday; the others were learning for tests, exercising, attending physical therapy, etc. All the data were backed up, the harddisks were reformatted, and all the softwares were reinstalled.
I would like to thank for Microsoft Campus Agreement License so that all my software copies are legal 😛 (except games, of course. eniwei, penting ya?) and to all my friends who were very nice to lend their software copies (what the?) esp. David for the copies of Windows AutoPatchers. Those things made my Windows looks cool and run fast! Many thanks, y’all!

My Poor Monitor

When we from the table tennis club are going to participate in units’ open house (OHU) at ITB, we planned to have a ping pong simulator. I offered my monitor for the simulator. That was a hell effort carrying my monitor from my room to the open house site at midnight. (FYI, my monitor is a flat 17″ CRT), not mentioning that I had just been tired from preparing the decoration.

As soon as I arrived at the site, I tried to set the simulator. But there was no electricity power at our stand. Because of that we went to other stand to try it again with their electricity. Okay, there was a success trial. And then I came back to our stand and sleep there until the morning.

The early of morning, I called one of the organizers to request the electricity at the club’s stand. Not long after it, they granted it. I quickly set up the simulator. At first, I thought I saw the cable extension’s indicator lamp was twinkling. I really didn’t have time to notice it because we had not much time before the opening. And then what happened? White smoke suddenly came out from my monitor. What a bad day….

But now, my monitor is working normally after I brought it to a monitor expert. It cost 200K IDR 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 .
