Streamyx Users - Can You Open Wikipedia?

Erghhh, Hafiz aka Mypapit & I noticed that Streamyx IP's are unable to access Wikipedia website at present. First, I suspect there is problem with DNS server. After querying, it seems my hypothesis is wrong :D

[root@kuli ~]# host is an alias for is an alias for has address
[root@kuli ~]# host
Using domain server:
Aliases: is an alias for is an alias for has address

-Use Google Cached service. E.g:
-Use proxy. I try tor, now i can access Wikipedia website :)
-Use other ISP's. From my observation, Jaring's IP's are not affected with this problem

To our beloved Streamyx users, what is your experience?

On 30th August 2006, 9.25AM; I'm able to open Wikipedia website. Yay!

Dalam RHEL Ada ReactOS

Tatkala fikiran melayang memikirkan nasib badan, ternampak si Najib tengah testing ReactOS guna Qemu. Apa lagi, terus mintak ISO & test pada VMware Workstation.

dalamrheladareactos dalamrheladareactos-2

Host OS: RHEL 4 Update 3 ES
Guest OS: ReactOS 0.3.0

  • Semasa install, pilih "Microsoft Windows", bukan "Other" sebagai Guest Operating System (dalam kes aku, Windows 2000 Professional). Jika pilih "Other", ReactOS gagal boot - perlu bereksprimen untuk mencari punca & akibat yang lebih lanjut
  • Selepas installation selesai, ReactOS akan prompt untuk beberapa driver. ReactOS semacam "hang" pada tahap SCSI driver - tekan "Cancel" untuk selamat
  • Semasa guna ReactOS, mungkin berlaku kejadian Blue Screen of Death - biasalah tu :) Tiada apa yang perlu dirisaukan, reboot sahaja.
  • Cecilia Cheung memang lawa :D
