Cara Bodoh Mengakali Akses Website Yang Di Blok

Disclaimer: Apa yang saya tuliskan disini ditujukan untuk sistem operasi linux dengan distro ubuntu. Jangan tanya cara implementasinya di Windows.

Tip kali ini, kita akan menggunakan dua jalur koneksi internet. Pertama, menggunakan koneksi asli (biasanya sih koneksi kantor ;)) ) yang memblok suatu situs. Kedua, koneksi backup untuk mem-bypass blok suatu situs. Saya sendiri untuk koneksi backup menggunakan telkomsel flash *BE, Kawos!*, karena koneksi kantor lebih cepat ;)).

Minggu-minggu terakhir ini saya sering banget download film via torrent. Sebagai orang Indonesia yang gak terlalu jago listening english, otomatis butuh subtitle dong. Nah, dulu, ketika butuh subtitle tujuan utama pasti google dulu. Tapi, sulitnya cari di google itu, sering kali subtitle yang ditemui tidak cocok dengan film yang ada. Kadang terlalu cepat, kadang terlalu lambat. Istilahnya, gak singkron antara suara dengan subtitle yang keluar. Solusinya bisa aja sih di singkronkan pake software2 subtitle yang banyak beredar di Internet (kalau pakai windows) atau tinggal apt-get install.

aqualung simpleIf you are frequent reader in this blog, you may know that I’m an amarok user. You may ask, why a gnome user use amarok as it’s music player. Well, up until now (or yesterday to be exact) I don’t find a good and intuitive UI that match my need. All player that I tried either have too much feature that make it’s UI very complicated or it doesn’t have a good way to manage play-list the way I want. While the other have GUI that use skin that I don’t feel comfortable using it. Yeah, I’m talking about xmms and the like of it.

Creating Evolution Mail Send Shortcut on Ubuntu / Gnome

I use gmail, but I don’t use email client to read it. But, from time to time, I have a moment where I have to send email ASAP. Open firefox then open gmail doesn’t really help much if you are on condition where network connection is limited and slow. Therefor, I need a solution for this. You might experience this, when you click or accidentally click some email link on some application, an a compose message window appear. HA!, I think I have to use this as my solution.

I search for email link that’s click-able on some application. After that, I look at ps aux on stjerm and search for some clue. After some scroll up-down on ps result, I guess I found that the command is evolution mailto:[[email protected]]. Now, I add new applet to panel with step:

  1. right click on top panel
  2. choose Add to Panel...
  3. select Custom Application Launcher
  4. click on Add button
  5. Enter Evolution Mail Send on Name and enter evolution mailto: on Command box.
  6. Fill in comment if you want
  7. Click OK
  8. You should see a new icon on your top panel

Note: You have to an account to your evolution to be able to send email. There’s plenty resource on the net to help setting gmail account on evolution. If you just like me who only need a way to send without receive email, you just need to set the Sending Email Part.
