Hmm…

Kenapa yah gw ini sepertinya bagus buat membimbing orang lain, walaupun ini bukan sesuatu yg 100% demen gw lakukan (tergantung bahan bimbingannya)? More appropriate for a Facebook status rather than a blog entry, I notice, but I don’t care

A short note on installing Pandoc

I’ve just tried installing Pandoc on my Ubuntu 12.04, using the Cabal (as the one on the Ubuntu repo is a rather old version). So there are a few things to do: Update the Cabal version (the 0.14.0 version that is in the repository is old) and set path to Cabal installed programs. cabal install […]

hmmmm….

I’ve been having problems accessing the admin page (the host claims that wordpress is using more than 64 MB, although a pure installation with some plugins wouldn’t use more than 40 MB), so I haven’t been able to update the blog I don’t know whether this will be fixed, but if this keeps up, I […]

Garden Update (23-06-2013)

Bumblebee

This week has been a blessing for the garden. From Monday to Wednesday the temperature reached 30+ C and the sun was out for the whole time. Then a good slosh of rain (in form of storms) came down on Thursday. It was quite amazing to see the rain clouds moving in from the balcony […]

Alpine strawberry Rosalie

Finally I can access the wordpress administration page again. Thanks for the work, 000webhost admins. Well, there hasn’t been much to report except things are growing well. The temperature has picked up and the plants are enjoying this condition. I’ve harvested my first alpine strawberry for this year. Many more are to come. The tomatoes […]

Garden Update (02-06-2013)

Tomato Roma flowers

This week have been so cloudy that not much changed has happened in my garden. Today, however, is a different story as sun was abound. Things seems to pick up again. Staying at home allows me to notice that my south-facing balcony isn’t getting that much sun, only from roughly 7am until 3pm. The cause […]

Garden Update (26-05-2013)

Pendulina rosa

Thanks to the cold weather this week, the garden had only a little progress. On Thursday, I had to push all pots closer to the wall because the temperature dropped close to freezing point. One bush bean seedling died of rot and the chilis and eggplants are staying indoors for the time being. The greens […]

Garden Update (19-05-2013)

Monday was a good start as the seeds I ordered from Justseed, a UK seed company, arrived bringing me a seed abundance of mizuna, komatsuna, bicolored perilla and 2 varieties of alpine strawberries: Ali Baba and White Soul. The labeling is good, although the germination instruction could be more detailed. The seed quality was so […]

Garden Update (12-05-2013)

Today the university’s botanical garden is holding a seedling market, along with free guided tours around the garden. As usual they have plenty of things to offer, but they’re not growing the ones I was after: and . Anyway, I got instead purple basil, lemon basil (Kemangi in Indonesian), strawberry mint and parsley. The parsley […]
