From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Photography is the process, activity and art of creating still or moving pictures by recording radiation on a radiation-sensitive medium, such as a photographic film, or an electronic sensor. Light patterns reflected or emitted from objects activate a sensitive chemical or electronic sensor during a timed exposure, usually through a photographic lens in a device known as a camera that also stores the resulting information chemically or electronically. Photography has many uses for business, science, art, and recreational purposes.

The word “photograph” was coined in 1839 by Sir John Herschel and is based on the Greek φῶς (photos) “light” and γραφή (graphé) “representation by means of lines” or “drawing”, together meaning “drawing with light”.[1] Traditionally, the products of photography have been called negatives and photographs, commonly shortened to photos.

Photo manipulation is the application of image editing techniques to photographs in order to create an illusion or deception (in contrast to mere enhancement or correction), through analog or digital means.[1] Its uses, cultural impact, and ethical concerns have made it a subject of interest beyond the technical process and skills involved.

Here is the sample of both combination, these are originally my photos and i did the manipulation to it


Finally, one of my fave band is coming to jakarta, yesss, its Dashboard Confessional, these pictures i took when they performing Live from Senayan in May 29th 2010. What make it more interested was when chriss carraba (DC vocalist:red) told that he have one favorite song, i was guessing, will it be weezer? because DC already covered 2 weezer songs (Jamie and say it ain’t so) , n suddenly the melody start n yess, it is weezer, Dashboard was playin weeezer’s song that nite, which is Say it ain’t so, just like what they had in the last album, i was so surprised and excited , n i don’t realize that i just jumped off for a while, (yeah it sounds weird huh, but i did it, i jumped for a while ),  n suddenly my friends (it was Dindin(starwick), nafri(starwick,simple pages) and are(the cello) running to the the front of the stage, yess we are jakarta weezerian, so we felt so respected back there because DC singing “our” song! yess.. and we get to the almost in the front of the stage, and we sing along from start to end in say it aint so, and afeter the song is end, DC still performing another tribute songs called “The summer of 69” which is originally performed by Bryan Adams.

That was a great time indeed, i cant believe im watching Dashboard Confessional LIVE !!

Mudah-mudahan informasi yang diperoleh di sini dapat bermanfaat bagi pembaca semua.

Sebenarnya menginstal Slackware tidaklah sesulit yang dibayangkan orang pada umumnya. Cara yang paling gampang agar distro Linux satu ini dapat berjalan langsung di komputer kita adalah dengan menginstalnya dari Live CD Slackware. Terserah varian mana yang anda gunakan, yang jelas instalasi dapat dilakukan manual sewaktu anda menjalankan Live CD tersebut. Terus, caranya bagaimana? Berikut langkah-langkah yang dapat dilakukan yang saya rangkum dari forum SLAX.

  1. Jalankan Live CD Slackware yang ingin anda instal ke komputer. Tunggu sampai proses booting selesai dan Desktop Environment (bisa KDE, Gnome, Xfce, dll.) yang digunakan muncul di hadapan anda.
  2. Persiapkanlah dua partisi hard disk kosong, satu untuk menampung seluruh isi dari Live CD tadi dan satunya lagi untuk swap. Anda dapat menggunakan program partisi yang tersedia di dalam Live CD, seperti QtParted atau GParted. Bisa juga menggunakan cfdisk di konsol. Selanjutnya jangan lupa untuk membuat filesystem di partisi yang bukan untuk swap (ext2, ext3, reiserfs atau xfs). Besar partisi disesuaikan dengan standar yang dipakai oleh Live CD, sementara besar swap biasanya 2 kali besar RAM komputer yang dipakai. Petunjuk untuk mempartisi hard disk sudah banyak tersedia di internet. Silakan tanya kepada Paman Google yang baik hati untuk referensi lebih lanjut. P
  3. Setelah semuanya dilakukan, mount partisi yang baru dibuat tadi, contoh di /mnt/hda2 (tempat mount dapat disesuaikan dengan kondisi anda masing-masing, dalam hal ini Windows terinstal di hda1). Setelah di-mount, kopilah semua berkas dan direktori Live CD ke partisi yang dimaksud. Copy paste kode berikut jika anda ingin hasil yang cepat.

    cp –preserve -R /{bin,dev,etc,home,opt,lib,root,sbin,usr,var} /mnt/hda2

    mkdir /mnt/hda2/{boot,mnt,proc,sys,tmp}
    cp /boot/boot/vmlinuz /mnt/hda2/boot

  4. Kemudian mount proc dan dev, chroot hda2 dan konfigurasi boot loader LILO.

    mount -t proc proc /mnt/hda2/proc
    mount –bind /dev /mnt/hda2/dev
    chroot /mnt/hda2

  5. Dalam kondisi ter-chroot, edit berkas /etc/lilo.conf dan simpan melalui editor favorit anda. Contoh berkas lilo.conf yang sederhana:

    boot = /dev/hda
    timeout = 300

    image = /boot/vmlinuz
    root = /dev/hda2
    label = SLAMPP

    other = /dev/hda1
    label = Windows
    table = /dev/hda

  6. Lalu, jalankan perintah /sbin/lilo -v untuk mengaktifkan konfigurasi LILO.
  7. Jika tidak ditemukan kesalahan, LILO anda sudah terinstal dan siap digunakan. Keluar dari chroot dengan mengetik perintah exit di konsol. Anda akan kembali ke lingkungan kerja Live CD.
  8. Ketik perintah reboot untuk me-restart komputer anda. Mari berdoa semoga tidak terjadi kesalahan yang berarti. )
  9. Tampilan menu LILO pun muncul menampilkan link ke sistem operasi distro linux Slackware dan Windows. Pilihlah yang linux untuk mentes apakah instalasi yang dilakukan tadi berjalan dengan baik.
  10. Selamat mencoba!
