As we all admitted and doctrined, Google is a 800-lbs Gorilla. The mistery of the number of PCs in their Beowulf clusters is still amazes and intrigues our curiosity.

Enough for the ass-licking Google, today i was looking for one particular email in my Gmail account. After putting the search word at the search bar, i clicked the search button .. lo … and behold …

See.. after all, our 800-lbs Gorilla sometimes want to act like the cute and chubby Orang utan …. ^_^!

About Hardono

Hi, I'm Hardono. I am working as a Software Developer. I am working mostly in Windows, dealing with .NET, conversing in C#. But I know a bit of Linux, mainly because I need to keep this blog operational. I've been working in Logistics/Transport industry for more than 9 years.

Their computers are having problem again. Jessie said that her PC unable to connect to JDE and MS Word behaves strangely. After questioned her a few questions, i found out that her PC has just replaced from old system. Mosheed only transferred the HD to the new PC. And its my job to clear the mess…

The first thing that i noticed was the missing drivers for her Video Adapter and Sound Card. After sometime spent playing around with her system, i found out that she can’t connect to DHCP server. Damn.. this is quite a problem..

After installed all required drivers, i start probing the network … sigh.. no hope…

After sometime spent nibbling honey-dew and Papaya at canteen, an idea come up in my mind.. although Jessie’s PC unable to get ip from DHCP, but if we assign the IP address manually it might work.

Lo and behold .. it did works… hehehe.. All well ends well eh ??!??

Since frequently visited Warnet (Warung Internet) or Internet Rental on my secondary school time, i always wanted to open my own. Recently i had discussion with my friend-he’s a good businessman, with good entrepreneurial instinct- about opening business venture in Indonesia. When i mentioned Warnet, he quickly rebuked my idea saying that he already had a discussion and calculation, which concluded that the particular business idea is having very small ROI with a huge TCO. Unfortunately, that time i couldn’t make my argument since i never actually research the ROI and TCO of that business model.

So hopefully for the next few days i’ll carefully research this topic.

Maybe today i’ll try to write about TCO (Total Cost of Ownership)

Initial costs cover the costs to start the business. These costs are:

  • leasing the building
  • buying new hardwares and softwares
  • revamping the building
  • buying furnitures
  • initial advertising.

Operational costs cover the costs to run day to day business. These costs are:

  • Electricity
  • Maintenance
  • Salary
  • Security

Hmm.. while i was pondering about the idea, i went to Wikipedia, realizing that i have so many things to read about corporate finance

I wish i can just download them into my brain like Neo did 🙂
