My New Toys, :)

Action Script3

(just for self documentation)

Notice how it differs from ActionScript 2, onRelease, onEnterFrame stuff.

Anyway, I'll tinker with this for next couple days, because it could be published as androidApps.apk via Adobe Air, for iOS too.

Anyone using Yosemite has Flash Player Problem?

As I installed it, Youtube gave me error code, Safari and Firefox has very slow speed and at sometime it won't load at all.

Download Flash Uninstaller, ran it, and everything's back to normal, :)

Enable SMS Forwarding between iOS 8.1 and Yosemite

No code's shown on Mac?

Me too. 

I have this solution after googling  DuckDuckGoing. 

here the excerpt 

I've found a solution on another forum and it worked for me:

Try this: Go to your iPhone Messages settings and turn off iMessages and turn it on again. Then go to the iMessages Settings on your Mac and do the same. After that it worked for me. Also make sure to activate your telephone number in the iMessages settings on your Mac.
and yeah, it works, :)


Keynote on Linux

No, there's no native iWork on my Debian Sid.

It has done via iCloud Drive and iCloud Keynote.

My keynote, wrote it using my old OS X Maverick (or maybe even when my MacBook is still using Lion or Snow Leopard, I forgot), can be accessed via Chrome browser.

Stuck on "Upgrading" iCloud Drive

Well, nothing we can do about it.

But, just remember that sometime the process time on apple based device (and others platform as well) didn't as reliable.

The "1 minute remaining" installation message that took 2 hours to finish.

The Mail app sending message that tell "34 minute remaining" but actually it's sent and we got bewildered when receiving reply of our message that "didn't" sent yet.  

So, be patient, :)

You could soft reset it, power-off and then turn it on again, or another reset, press home button and power button at same time until the device turned off and boot by itself.

Got some solution from discussions.apple.com, flip the airplane switch to on, it'll gave the error message, flip it to off again, and all is well, the iCloud drive status is on. Weird, not pretty solution, but worked, so no problem for me.

But that won't guarantee the problem is solved for everyone, :)

Some succeed by using it and some didn't.

The alternative is, again, be patient, :)


Trace Animation on Keynote

I used it on my OS X Yosemite, still prefer Anagram+Anvil/Appear combo though, :)



Crazy wifi.id Hotspot Corner Speed

Bagaimana kecepatan di wifi.id? Pake speedy instan? 

I’m using intel voucher and what the…  

The 10 Mbps speed is reached, 

wow. 

I upgraded my Garage Band, all iWorks suite (Page, Numbers, Keynote), iMovie, and others (that means download almost 5GB data), and it done under 15 minutes, heheh...

Pake Windows 8.1 di  virtual machine pun masih ok, download hampir 1 giga update-an pun gak sampe 15 menit.

Agak beda dengan Ubuntu Virtual Machine, saat download update hanya mencapai 3Mbps, but, have been deal with 512Kbps before, it's still crazy speed.

The Yosemite

Closing Apps on OS X Yosemite is ‘true’ Closing

yup, maybe because I update it to latest version or whatnot, the iWorks suite behave differently. It totally close the apps, no dot on the dock

Still tinkering around to get it work with my iPhone 4s, :)

Coherence on Ubuntu 14.04

When entering Coherence mode in my Ubuntu 14.04 virtual machines, using unity desktop, it asked to disable display visual effects in the virtual machine. 

After DuckDuckGo-ing, it happened that not just the visual effect that must be disabled, but entire unity desktop and have to add gnome-session flshback, :( 

Anyway, the coherence is not what I expect.

Top panel still there, bottom panel is still present

It is the same gnome with OS X background, so I back to Unity again, no coherence mode. It's okay. :)

The Safer Ubuntu

Usually, UNIX-like have weakness (at least that what I though) on password changing. Take the OS X, by default we don't have root password, but we could just $sudo su and then #passwd and tadaa..., we have super users password, we are super user.

but take a look at my ubuntu terminal

nugroho@ubuntu:~$ passwd
Changing password for nugroho.
(current) UNIX password: 
Enter new UNIX password: 
Retype new UNIX password: 
Bad: new and old password are too similar
Enter new UNIX password: 
Retype new UNIX password: 
passwd: password updated successfully
nugroho@ubuntu:~$ passwd
Changing password for nugroho.
(current) UNIX password: 
Enter new UNIX password: 
Retype new UNIX password: 
Sorry, passwords do not match
passwd: Authentication token manipulation error
passwd: password unchanged
nugroho@ubuntu:~$ 
nugroho@ubuntu:~$ passwd
Changing password for nugroho.
(current) UNIX password: 
Enter new UNIX password: 
Retype new UNIX password: 
passwd: password updated successfully
nugroho@ubuntu:~$ 
.

Finally, Ubuntu 4.10 on Parallels Desktop

Express installs make Parallels Tool installed by default.

It created some problem
Problem warning at first boot
No desktop at all, just plain background, no top bar nor side unity menu

It can be solved with this

enter commandline mode using fn-ctrl-option-f1
enter username and password
type commad below
$ cd /etc/X11
$ ls (there should be file named xorg.conf.XXXXXXXX )
$ sudo mv xorg.conf.XXXXXXXX /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/xorg.conf
$ export DISPLAY=:0
$ gsettings reset org.compiz.core:/org/compiz/profiles/unity/plugins/core/ active-plugins

now reboot using $ sudo init 6

yup, the top bar is there, also side Unity bar, but

Chaotic OS WeekEnd


It happened because of parallel desktop,  

on my Macbook Air with OS XMavericks. 

We know, it have good relationship with Windows, so installing 7 or even 8.1 is breeze. 

But, how about linux? well, not so 

Equalizer for OS X (for all apps on Mac, not just for iTunes)

We’re all know that our beloved OS X come handy with iTunes, it has equalizer!!! (a bit hyperbolic here, :) ) 

But, how about watching HD video on Youtube? Yup, we don’t have EQ set for that, also for Quicktime, and practically anything, … 

Of course we could buy the EQ system for that, 

But, there’s a free workaround for that 

Here we go:

Dating the Air


I don't do any benchmark things, but, from what I feel, this 11" standart MacBook Air has a faster and smoother experience than my mid 2009 13" MacBook Pro full option (2.5 GHz, 4G RAM)

Safari is fast!! You know what I feel when write that, :). Yup, the usually sluggish Safari is run smoother on MBA.

Windows 8.1 run via Virtual Machine without additional fan noise, compared to its VirtualBox VM on my MBP it feels like bless from heaven. The native Mac apps could run side by side without lagging too, certainly it's very big plus. Now I can running Delphi and old Macromedia Flash and coding in silent, meditational state, noisless environment :)

I don't know how 1.4 GHz processor in MBA could outperform its 2.5GHz predecessor, but I dont mind, this 11 inch standart early 2014 MacBook Air is considered as major upgrade for me, :)

Get iWork ‘09 to Work on New Macbook


I got MacBook Air with new iWork Suite as three standalone apps.  

Of course it’s always be three separate app, but I used to think that three as one package, :) 

It turned out that the new iWork Suite is fast, really fast, maybe because it use 64-bit architecture, or maybe I used the new MBA mid 2014. 

But  I missed the capability of my old iWork on MacBook Pro mid 09. It’s the ability to password-protect keynote-imported-pdf from copy content. 

My old MBP mid 09 has old and new iWork run side by side because I purchased the iWork DVD retail. And I don’t have idea where the hell that DVD now.
