Pengolahan sampah dan kekerasan

Judul ini sepertinya sama sekali gak nyambung...Apa coba hubungan
sampah dan kekerasan? yang satu soal penanganan sesuatu yang merupakan
buangan, yang satu suatu tindak emosional pada suatu struktur
masyarakat...... Ini dia kejadian yang bikin saya (semakin) geleng2x
pada fenomena di negeri ini

Masyarakat Cilonjong (salah spell mungkin?) di Bogor, Jawa barat
memprotes pemindahan TPA Bantar Gebang ke daerah mereka. Kebijakan ini
notabene berawal dari pememerintah DKI Jakarta yang mencari tempat
alternatif TPA dan dipilihlah Cilonjong. Hanya saja, tampaknya
keputusan ini tidak diambil secara komprehensif. Buktinya? Masyarakat
Cilonjong memprotes pemindahan TPA ini.

Awalnya berdasar berita2x baik koran dan TV, masyarakat berusaha
menyampaikan komplain secara baik2x (ini memang relatif, tp menurut
saya masih dalam tataran musyawarah), tapi seperti biasa, di Indonesia
hanya musyawarahnya aja yang jalan, hasil nol besar. gak di DPR, gak
di tataran masyarakat. Singkat kata, malam ini saya nonton TV,
ternyata terjadi massive chaos di bakal TPA Cilonjong. Masyarakat
mengamuk membakar mobil, menghancurkan properti kantor. Polisi lalu
menghalau warga dan melepaskan tembakan peluru (tajam) ke bbrp orang
(tersangka).

yang agak lucu campur tragis, saya melihat ada kakek2x yang dituduh
seorang anggota polisi sebagai salah satu provokator kerusuhan dan
diseret paksa oleh polisi. Saya gak akan komentar panjang dulu soal
seret menyeret ini, tp saya akan berkomentar dua hal

1. Sepertinya decision making di negeri ini tambah hari bukannya
getting better malah getting worse. Sekedar masalah TPA saja gak bisa
diambil suatu keputusan yang win-win, malah menghasilkan suatu win
lose solution. Parameternya apa? apa karena penolakan warga? Bukan
itu. Di semua negara (maju) yang namanya TPA itu jauh dari pemukiman
warga sehingga tidak menimbulkan polusi, tp ini malah dekat pemukiman.
Kedua, sampah dari jakarta dibawa ke Bogor? Gak salah nih? Cost
pengangkutannya apa gak malah jadi membengkak? Lagian, apa sampah kalo
dibawa ke Bogor terus banjir bisa mereda? Bukan rahasia lagi, sampah
adalah number 1 factor penyebab banjir...

2. Nah ini soal pengendalian massa. Seperti biasa polisi akhirnya
represif. OK, that's fine. tapi sampai peluru tajam apalagi melakukan
identifikasi prematur pada calon tersangka? He he he....Udah kering
kayaknya lidah saya komentar ginian.....Lucu bin ajaib binti
membingungkan

Lalu sekali lagi saya membayangkan "Kayaknya kalo Moshe Bar denger
berita ginian, dia akan tertawa geli dari kantor Qlusters di New York
dan tel aviv...." "begini kok Mulyadi Santosa, that smart ass guy,
want to challenge israel? he is better dreaming on his bed". Ya
memang, kalo negara ini begini terus, jangankan mengimbangi Israel
(dah ini mimpi aja deh, kayaknya baru seabad lagi baru bisa), bisa2x
Indonesia ketinggalan jauh ama vietnam. Selalu dan selalu akarnya,
suatu kebijakan pemerintah baik pusat atau daerah yang
prematur.....hrrhh :D Abis lah kata2x gue hari ini...mau ketawa
soalnya campur sedih :D :D :D

Bgmn pak Sby dgn gebrakan 100 hari anda? Bisakah anda menengahi
masalah ini?

CONDOLECENCE FOR YASSER ARAFAT, LEADER OF PLO

Today, November 11th, 2004, Yasser Arafat died in France after suffering
some strange coma caused by lack of brain liquid. The exact cause still
hasn't been announced, either by official spoke person of France hospital,
member of PLO's board of executive or Zuha, Arafat's wive. Many people believe,
it is Israeli's government which took full responsibility. Mossad, Israeli's
intelligence, was suspected putting somekind of poison that slowly degrading
human antibody and damaging metabolism.

Above all, personally, I know Arafat since I was 4 or 5 years old. I remembered
the news reporter mentioned his name everytime there was a news about Palestine-
Israel conflict. Only few thing I know about him, but one thing that I respect most,
is the way he fought for country. A burning spirit that never died, even under heavy
pressure of Israel government. Especially, since Ariel Sharon took Israeli's leadership, israeli government put lots of pressure toward Arafat and isolate him ( I forgot where, maybe somewhere on Gaza). because of this isolation, Arafat can no longer live with his family. His wife and his only daugther must live in France to avoid israel's threat

truthfully, me and Arafat are not same person. He is a moslem and I am a Catholic.
But one thing that surprise me most, I saw a picture on local newspaper, there are
4 Rabbi of Jewish (it is mentioned that they are Anti Zionis) that showed their condolecence for Arafat. In some Palestine churches, people (of course, Catholic are minority in palestine) pray for Arafat. There was also memorable picture of Arafat shaking John The Pope. This facts showed that Arafat is well known among people, even with different religion.

Very few Moslem man who I know that gets such an honorship and Arafat proved he was
the true Moslem ! "Rahmatil bin alam", hope I don't mispelled, meaning "to bring
peace and prosper among all of God's creation in whole universe"

Maybe the only similarity between me and Arafat is, we both have tough Israeli's enemy. If he is considered #1 enemy of Ariel Sharon, me.....don't be shocked, I already considered #2 (if not #1) enemy of Moshe Bar, one of toughest and formidable israeli scientist and CTO...who is....Jewish. Maybe, in some point, I can understand why Arafat put continous struggle toward Israel. Don't get me wrong, not all of Israeli citizen are bad. There are also good people too. Same thing happen on all other country, US, Indonesia, Malaysia, German, France, u name it. Accidentaly, Arafat must face israel's pressure, and me, I can't stand hearing Moshe bluff about clustering.And finally, we both end up in final conclusion, win-win solution was hard to achieved..so..confrontation was the only answer. We both know the consequences and we both step into it. NO REGRETS !

Rest in Peace, Mr Arafat. May God reward on everything you do for your country
and I hope peace will come on Palestine so there won't be anymore victim of the war

Back to home.....continuing my journey....

November 8th, 2004, 9 AM, i stepped back into my home at Porong. After spending
2 and a half month on bandung, I decide "ok, this is it. This is the ending, i can't
hold any longer". Luckily, my "stunt in", Rachman, had been prepared to take over
my job. Several pieces of new multithread engine for calculation/render engine, improved timer function based on native WinAPIs and save/reply engine. Except the timer functions, everything is still on beta stage. I can't push them further into mature stage because multithread engine must "wait" for stable stage of object design. This isn't a must, but IMO to lessen the "dependency hell", i decide to put multi thread engine "on hold".

But, this doesn't mean there won't be any progress. My instruction (to Rahman) is clear, "put concentration on OOP first, make thread engine 2nd priority. There won't be any thread engine if OOP design is crippled !"

The train was quite crowded last night. Looks like everyone want to celebrate "lebaran" at hometown together with their family. Same rule apply to me, although I am not Moslem. But.....gee....I really hate to say it.....ahh, i don't give a damn care ....yes, I am quite frustated by one thing...GIRL! A man who dare to challenge one of toughest Israeli's scientist and CTO of IT company, can't resolve his problem with girl ! yes, that poor man is me !

" Me, me, me and me".....God damn it ! Shit, i push both of my brain to work
on it...but still no way out. I use every logical reasoning, problem solving technique, etc etc....even trial and error....but I still can't break this puzzle ! R-E-L-I-G-I-O-N ! Let God curse me, but sometimes I feel religion is no more than social barrier rather than "God's word to teach mankind into salvation".

"Why, why, why do I have to meet her?"

Or better question maybe (worst in sick logic) "why the hell, God put me and her into
same time and place dimension that time?" She came across the bookstore room, I look at her, the chemistry is fired...and......

OK, let me put that aside. Deep inside this "logic", I still have feeling to her. Now, my focus is...working on my article (co-authored with my friend, Andreas Schaefer) toward IBM DeveloperWorks. The topic is about coLinux and openMosix integration on Windows platform. This will be a breakthrough to integrate Windows-based PC into Linux based openMosix cluster. In earlier time, the only way to achieve it is via running openMosix-Linux kernel inside VMWare.

But considering the "overburden effect" of VMware, the developers is still looking for alternative answer. Luckily, coLinux arises ! And to add another luck, the editor welcomes my idea and give positive critics and comment ! What a luck. Now, it depends on me to finish it the best I can

Too much I have said.....to be continued guys...
