manually setting up a VPN tunnel (PPTP)

Freeze Installing Ubuntu

Posted 05-11-2011 at 07:56 PM by megasaputra

When I tried to install Ubuntu 11.04, my computer froze. Before, I installed Ubuntu, I deleted linux partition, cause my computer freeze in the first time I turn on my computer.

The myth of user-friendliness.

Posted 05-10-2011 at 11:37 PM by TobiSGD

In this post I want to point out my view on the so called user-friendliness.

Sabily is varian of ubuntu. Its feature is for moslem. There are many program that is useful for learning Islam, like Zekr, Othman Quran Browser, Thawab, and so on.
