Improvement to website speed and accesibility In recent weeks and months more and more problems showed up with the speed and the availability of several websites in our network, among them indahnesia.com and ticketindonesia.info. Because these problems grew larger - partly because our websites are more frequently visited nowadays - something had to be done about this really fast.

It's emergency, help Every once in a time you probably receive an email that is clearly a form of scam. Often orginating from an known person that is trying to persuade you into sending 'a small amount of' money so he/she can claim a huge sum of money from a deceased family member or something similar.

Flying Merpati Nusantara? Are you sure? Figures from ticketindonesia.info show that the airline with the most canceled flights in their name is Merpati Nusantara. This Indonesian state-owned company, also partially owned by Garuda Indonesia, seems to have a peculiar way of conducting business; selling tickets, canceling flights and then wait for months to pay back the money paid for tickets on those canceled flight. At least it seems that way.

Ramadan: Which 'porn' is really blocked? Just several weeks ago the Indonesian Minister of Communication, reli-nut Tifatul Sembiring of the radical Islamic Party for Prosperous Justice PKS, threatened to block half the internet. This was to protect Islamic values during the holy month of fasting, Ramadan. And was most likely to be maintained afterward as well, because it was already implemented anyway.

This was in the picture! #22 To this very day, every morning there are floating markets in Banjarmasin in which farmers and traders brought their goods to trade on boats. It has always been a farmersí market and itís interesting to see the genuine river-based way of life. The rivers are also the main venues for boat races and other festivities. The main attractions are the waterlogged suburbs traversed by canals; much of the city's commerce takes place on water. Get there early to enjoy most of it.

This was in the picture! #20 Magic mushrooms are sold on the small islands northwest of Lombok, better known as the Gili's, and you will find them everywhere nowadays. Officially seen as drugs, they can be purchased and sold freely here in one way or another. But these products of nature should be treated as such; don't bring them off the island and don't bring them across borders.

Trading XL for Simpati Something remarkable to me is the limited number of SMS messages or telephone calls that I received. That seems to be coincidence, but it isn't. Most people don't even know that I am pulang kampung, but the main reason is the simple fact that the network of my provider XL is not available for most time here. At some moments when the weather is good - so the wet season like now is an even worse time - I can barely send or receive an SMS here now. Making a telephone call is simply not possible.

This was in the picture! #10 A stupa on the Borobudur temple in the neighborhood of Magelang in Central Java. The story goes that if you can touch the head of the Buddha-statue inside the stupa, this will bring good luck. The generally somewhat smaller Indonesians do have more problems touching the head than the average Westerner that tries it.

Thank you for the emails After over one day without internet in Yogyakarta we left for Malang yesterday in the early afternoon. We used a travel (small bus that will bring you to your final destination right away, 100,000 Rupiah per person) to travel between these cities. We arrived here early in the evening. At that time I tried to connect to the internet but it still didn't work. I then suspected my modem was most likely not working anymore.

Bali tourists robbed by airport staff Staff at the international airport of Ngurah Rai on the resort island of Bali again have found a way to extort money for unknowing tourist that are leaving for home. This time it's fake tax duties that are filling up pockets of crooked employees at the airport. Where Indonesia does not see internet as a way to advertise, Australians know how this works and use email to tell others their story.

Fraud with my credit card For everything is a first time. Yesterday I was SMS-ed from the Netherlands with the request to check my email. No company asked me to do that, but my contact person in the Netherlands which can be contacted by the Rabobank in case it is needed. I checked my email right away and found out that the Fraud Prevention team of the Rabobank had blocked by credit card because they suspected that my card was used by others.

This was in the picture! #3 This time indeed no picture of Indonesian nature, but a building project that has never been finished. The picture was a part of a concrete pillar which eventually should have become an elevated toll road. That highway was never constructed and these pillars are lost in the landscape along Kali Malang in the regency of Bekasi, directly east of Jakarta. To view the picture in our new large format, please visit the picture gallery 'Seeing is believing'.

Grammatical error in Tourism 2008 campaign to be fixed A grammatical error in the 'Visit Indonesia 2008' campaign - to be found on airplanes, websites and advertisements - has to be fixed, said an official at the Ministry of Tourism on Wednesday. The slogan of the campaign reads 'Celebrating 100 years of nation's awakning'. 'Nation's', in correct English, should read 'national' or has to be preceded by a definite article.

Indonesia's monorail struggles to get on track Gridlocked cars. Noxious traffic fumes. Indonesia's capital is crying out for a new transport network, but stop-start plans for a monorail illustrate the country's chequered efforts to build badly needed infrastructure. The idea of a gleaming monorail gliding above the congested tropical city of nearly 9 million people is an enticing one and proponents point to neighbouring Bangkok's Skytrain or Kuala Lumpur's monorail in at least easing equally grim transport woes.

The site of Paddy's Bar in Kuta has been turned into a car park. There are also plans to transform the neighbouring Sari Club site, which also hosts shrines and tributes, into a car park. Both nightclubs were destroyed in the October 2002 bomb blasts that killed 202 people, 88 of them Australians.

Yogya from the air It's not the world as I know it, an aerial view over the city. Normally I will only see cities from the roads I drive on by motorbike. It's much more cheap to do so, because using a helicopter to have a look in town is not for the average man. Still I had the chance to make some pictures from the window upon arriving in Yogyakarta in December last year. Since the airport is close to the city and the weather was clear, I made a handful of pictures.

Indonesia re-enacts Jakarta embassy bombing Indonesian police re-enacted Sunday parts of the bombing that killed nine people in front of the Australian embassy, an act that triggered outrage from ordinary Indonesians visiting the site. The Australian flag was fluttering at full-mast at the embassy, where a temporary wooden wall has been erected in front of the metal security fence blasted apart by Thursday's attack.

Well donít get scared or shocked after having a look at the pictures above because thatís not pics from Iraq, Somalia, Palestine or even Aceh. But from my most favorite military enthusiast club Code 4 where I myself am a member Ė a club that is very different from any sports club. A sport where one can almost feel the hardship, experience of a true fighting soldier in a fun simulated war situation.

In the early hours of 2003, the very early hours, I decided it was about time to expand my world of Indonesia on the world wide web. Since about 4 years I have maintained a Dutch links-website under Startpagina ( indonesie.pagina.nl, Startpagina.nl ). Iím doing fine with that one, collecting more and more visitors over the year. Most are still Dutch, and thatís the big reason why I made the second step in uniting the Indonesian-loving community in the Netherlands. I started a forum, which was offered by Startpagina for quite some time, but I didnít want to start because I was busy working on my websites.

MS Outlook users send virusses Over the past couple of weeks, my email box has been flooded by a large amount of virus-emails, send from all kinds of people's email boxes. These virus-emails are sent by people who didn't protect their computer from exploits which have been known for quite some time. They are contaminated with the Yaha-virus, or a closely related one. This virus will send emails when it wants, and to all kinds of people in the adress-books stored on the persons computer.

Dolar, dolar, dolar !!! - I can imagine very well, the shouting of traders in Rupiah and 'Dolar Amerika Serikat', the US Greenback. Not in the JSX, where 16 people got killed last year, but just in the streets, at markets downtown Jakarta and far outside. People who can afford to buy foreign money actually will, those who cant, are already too late. The Rupiah tipped 11,500 to the US$ before BI(1 intervened, and two days after we are seeing levels around and just below the 10,000 mark. That's still dramatically below levels that were targeted by the Indonesian government for the economical year 2001, which lasts to 31 december 2001.

A story that I wrote a long time ago, but I never finished. Right now I finished it, and the texts that dates back from August 2000, I didn't change. Some information ( personal that is ) is already outdated, unfortunately.
