Long Time No See


tak terasa, sudah setahun lebih aku tak mencatat apapun di Blog ini. Mungkin karena terlalu lama berada di kampung orang. Ya, aku baru kembali dari sbuah project di kantor yang lokasinya jauh dari kampung halaman. Sebenarnya sudah agak lama juga, tapi baru kali ini ingat lagi bahwa aku punya account di Wah, payah. Anakku yang kecil saja sudah punya homepage sendiri di

Memang tidak mudah menuangkan isi pikiran ke dalam tulisan. Makanya harus dibiasakan. Aku akan mencobanya mulai dari sekarang.

Gembong teroris tewas

Setelah diburu polisi selama beberapa tahun, akhirnya gembong teroris yang meresahkan itu dikabarkan tewas di Jawa Timur.

Mudah-mudahan ini hadiah lebaran dari Polri untuk masyarakat di Indonesia, sehingga di hari-hari ke depan semuanya akan menjadi lebih aman. Amin.

Baru kembali masuk kantor

Hari ini saya baru kembali dari cuti lebaran.

Lumayan, lebaran kemarin sempat mudik bersama instri dan anak-anak, kebetulan ada saudara yang beruntung bisa membawa mobil pinjaman, sehingga mudiklah kami 3 (tiga) keluarga dengan mobil itu.

Karena rame-rame dan mobil pinjaman, maka ongkos yang keluar tidak terlalu besar jika dibandingkan naik kereta api. Lumayan lah, cuma keluar uang 150 ribu rupiah saja.

Selamat Hari Raya

Saya dan keluarga mengucapkan Selamat Hari Raya Idul Fitri 1 Syawal 1426H bagi semua teman-teman yang merayakan, mohon maaf lahir bathin.

Semoga lebaran kali ini membawa kebahagiaan mendalam di setiap hati kita. Amin.

Apa lagi sesudah ini?

Wabah polio beritanya sudah surut di media masa.

Disusul kemudian dengan berita-berita krisis listrik, krisis BBM, sekarang ditambah lagi dengan wabah flu burung yang sudah memakan korban jiwa sebanyak tiga orang dari satu keluarga.

Indonesia, malang benar nasibmu...

Apa lagi sesudah itu?

Tuhan Maha Besar, ampuni kami, selamatkan kami...

Wabah Polio di Sukabumi

Bencana seolah tidak henti-henti menerpa rakyat Indonesia.
Gempa di Nabire (dua kali), gempa disusul tsunami di Aceh, gmpa di Nias, gunung meletus, banjir, tanah longsor...sekarang ditanbah lagi wabah virus polio di Sukabumi.

Katanya Indonesia sudah bebas polio sejak beberapa tahun lalu. Katanya virus polio liar yang mewabah itu berasal dari orang-orang yang bepergian terutama pergi ke Arab dan berinteraksi dengan virus carrier dari Afrika, tetapi koq yang tertular orang-orang miskin yang hidup di desa terpencil di Sukabumi.

Terus terang wabah ini sangat memprihatinkan aku, soalnya aku juga punya balita.

Mudah-mudahan ini cepat berlalu.

DPR ribut lagi

Kemarin sore DPR ribut lagi!

Tidak penting apa yang mereka perdebatkan, tapi lihat kelakuan anggota dewan yang katanya terhormat itu! Apa pantas?

Kelakuan seperti itu minta gaji naik? Yang benar saja!


It could be you!

Forwarded by a friend:

Recently, I was diagnosed with A. A. A. D. D. - Age Activated
Attention Deficit Disorder. This is how it manifests:

I decide to wash my car. As I start toward the garage, I notice that there is mail on the hall table.
I decide to go through the mail before I wash the car.

I lay my car keys down on the table, put the junk mail in the trash can under the table, and notice that the trash can is full.

So, I decide to put the bills back on the table and take out the trash first.
But then I think, since I'm going to be near the mailbox when I take out the trash anyway, I may as well pay the bills first.

I take my checkbook off the table, and see that there is only one check left. My extra checks are in my desk in the study, so I go to my desk where I find the can of Coke that I had been drinking.

I'm going to look for my checks, but first I need to push the Coke aside so that I don't accidentally knock it over.

I see that the Coke is getting warm, and I decide I should put it in the refrigerator to keep it cold.

As I head toward the kitchen with the coke a vase of flowers on the counter catches my eye--they need to be watered.

I set the Coke down on the counter, and I discover my reading glasses that I've been searching for all morning. I decide I better put them back on my desk, but first I'm going to water the flowers.

I set the glasses back down on the counter, fill a container with water and suddenly I spot the TV remote. Someone left it on the kitchen table.

I realize that tonight when we go to watch TV, I will be looking for the remote, but I won't remember that it's on the kitchen table, so I decide to put it back in the den where it belongs, but first I'll water the flowers.

I splash some water on the flowers, but most of it spills on the floor. So, I set the remote back down on the table, get some towels and wipe up the spill.

Then I head down the hall trying to remember what I was
planning to do.

At the end of the day: the car isn't washed, the bills aren't paid, there is a warm can of Coke sitting on the counter, the flowers aren't watered, there is still only one check in my checkbook, I can't find the remote, I can't find my glasses, and I don't remember what I did with the car keys.

Then when I try to figure out why nothing got done today, I'm really baffled because I know I was busy all day long, and I'm really tired.

I realize this is a serious problem, and I'll try to get some help for it, but first I'll check my e-mail.

Do me a favor, will you? Forward this message to everyone you know, because I don't remember to whom it has been sent.

Don't laugh -- if this isn't you yet, your day is coming!

A story of a software engineer

An ambitious software engineer finally decided to take a vacation.
He booked himself on a Caribbean cruise and proceeded to have the time of his life. At least for a while.
A hurricane came up unexpectedly. The ship went down and was lost instantly. The man found himself swept up on the shores of an island with no other people, no supplies, nothing. Only bananas and coconuts.
Used to four-star hotels, this guy had no idea what to d o. So, for the next four months he ate bananas, drank coconut juice, longed for his old life, and fixed his gaze on the sea, hoping to spot a rescue ship.
One day, as he was lying on the beach, he spotted movement out of the corner of his eye. It was a rowboat, and in it was the most gorgeous woman he had ever seen. She rowed up to him.
In disbelief, he asked her: "Where did you come from, and how did you get here?"
"I rowed from the other side of the island," she said. "I landed here when my cruise ship sank."
"Amazing," the software engineer said, "I didn't know anyone else had survived. How many of you are there? You were really lucky to have a rowboat wash up with you."
"It's only me," she said, "and the rowboat didn't wash up: nothing did."
He was confused, "Then how did you get the rowboat?"
"Oh, simple, " replied the woman. "I made it out of raw material that I found on the island. The oars were whittled from gum-tree branches, I wove the bottom from palm branches, and the sides and stern came from a eucalyptus tree."
"But, but, that's impossible," stuttered the man. "You had no tools or hardware - how did you manage?"
"Oh, that was no problem," the woman said. "On the south side of the island, there is a very unusual strata of exposed alluvial rock. I found that if I fired it to a certain temperature, it melted into forgeable ductile iron. I used that to make tools, and used the tools to make the hardware. But enough of that. Where do you live?"
Sheepishly, the man confessed that he had been sleeping on the beach the whole time. "Well, let's row over to my place then," she said.
After a few minutes of rowing, she docked the boat at a small wharf. As the man looked onto shore, he nearly fell out of the boat. Before him was a stone walk leading to an exquisite bungalow painted in blue and white.
While the woman tied up the rowboat with an expertly woven hemp rope, the man could only stare ahead, dumbstruck.
As they walked into the house, she said casually, "It's not much, but I call it home. Sit down, please. Would you like to have a drink?"
"No, no, thank you," he said, still dazed. "I couldn't drink another drop of coconut juice."
"It's not coconut juice," the woman replied. "I have made a still - How about a Pina Colada?"
Trying to hide his continued amazement, the software engineer accepted, and they sat down on her couch to talk. After they had exchanged their stories, the woman announced, "I'm going to slip into something more comfortable. Would you li ke to have a shower and a shave? There is a razor upstairs in the cabinet in the bathroom."
No longer questioning anything, the man went into the bathroom. There in the cabinet was a razor made from a bone handle. Two shells honed to a hollow-ground edge were fastened to its tip, inside a swivel mechanism.
"This woman is absolutely amazing," he mused. "What next?"
When he returned, the woman greeted him. She beckoned for him to sit down next to her. "Tell me," she began suggestively, Slithering closer to him, brushing her leg against his, "We've both been out here for a very long time. You've been lonely. There's something I'm sure you really feel like doing right now, something you've been longing to do for all of these months."
She stared into his eyes.
He couldn't believe what he was hearing - this was like all of his dreams coming true in one day.

"You mean...," he replied, "I can check my e-mail from here?"
