First Post!

Archive for the ‘Last Post’ Category

Enter “Indonesian web standards evangelist” as keywords on Google and you will see that his page is number one. He is Boy Avianto. Recently graduated as Master of Science in Digital Media (Lubeck, Germany) he actually got his bachelor degree in Architecture (Bandung, Indonesia) just like me. His first post on a blog was on September 3, 2000 (on Blogger I think). Coincidentally or ironically or whatever expression there may be, he also stop blogging on the same date five years later. That is September 3, 2005 with his last post titled 5. So here is his first post.

at last, this place is alive again…
i hope i can update this as often as possible.

from now on, i try to put daily update which can be everything that i could think of.
all link suppose to work well, but the content is still under some development, so please, be patient.

until then, enjoy this place…

And this is his last post.

The same date, 5 years ago, I wrote my first journal entry on this small website. It was starting as an effort to keep my personal website regularly updated and to create an occasional escape hatch during my bachelor’s final project months.

With that humble start, this journal was growing into something that I wasn’t even realized before. I use this journal mostly to dump my thought, opinion or everything else, a junkyard for the mind.

To my amazement, this place give me more than just a brain dump, it introduced me with some interesting people, it put me as one of the longest Indonesian blogger, who write in English, it gave me numerous jobs and freelancing opportunities and also it serve me as the archive of my life during the previous 5 years.

So I guess, I deserve yet another break. With my current unfortunate situation is kinda hard to write or even to think about something interesting. Yes, I know I said that I will be all right, but it just too hard to bear that I don’t think I will be able to maintain clear mind long enough to write something worth reading. I will not write about my frustration, depression and desperate situation anymore as the more I wrote about them, the more I become depressed, but I also couldn’t write about… well, anything else. So I decide this is the right time to call it quit for some unknown timeframe.

It was an amazing experience and for me, the value of the experience is priceless. I thank you all of my regular reader and sorry for not be able to continue writing. All of the archives are left intact so there will be no missing link in case someone found my entry was interesting enough and linked them.

So farewell. It’s been a pleasure. Until we meet again. Avianto’s out.

Goodluck in everything you do. Until we meet again.

Hanindyo Notohatmodjo a.k.a Dicky or Hanin is our closest friend. Officialy, he has begun his public blogging on 8th March 2005 and because of one and other reasons he decided to stop blogging at 14th October 2005. Maybe some of you, has claimed this blog as a blog which is only collecting the first post from famous bloggers, but we don’t. We’re trying to appreciate the first effort, the first journey of all bloggers when they were ready to take off into the blogosphere. As the appreciation to Hanin, we don’t have any remarkable goodbye words to say and as the substitution we present you the first post (in Indonesian) and the last post of him. Here’s the beginning…

udah lamaa banget pengen punya domain sendiri, hosting sendiri dengan movable type dan lain sebagainyaaa akhirnya ada jg yang baik hati nyedian typepad gratis, sayang kenapa juga pake iklan, ga ada yah yang bener-bener gratis..

hari ini mid exam intro to int’l relations.. masih 101 gitu deh..ga advance banget ga sih..tapi ama Banyu lumayan juga ..kebiasan dikasi framework di strategic studies kali yah..capek-capek bikin tugas tau-nya ga boleh dikumpulin, padahal di course schedule-nya dibilang before the mid exam, Darn, it’s still 9:35 in the morning dan terus dengan enteng bilang udah diralat dikelas..kuping gw yang lagi jalan-jalan atau emang lg kebetulan ga masuk..ya udah lah ya..lagipula cuma 10% dari nilai, tunggu aja di final exam & paper gw ntar.. ngancem gitu ceritanya, tp ga papa buat motivasi lah..

ke fasnet, lagi-lagi gw terbengong-bengong dengan posting hasil seleksi masteryoga I-5, bener-bener gw emang pemalas dan harus tahu diri, ayo rajin latihan yakk ..

cedera kaki-nya ketut kambuh lagi gara-gara aerobic, dan gw turut sukses menyumbangkan penderitaan dengan lupa mengganti obat kamuh :( apa tuh meloxicam ama nutriflam yah mana mahal lagi.. Maaf ya, aku kelamaan kamu jadi kambuh..

sore nemenin Ketut berenang, udaranya dingin banget, mana lupa bawa jaket..kebiasaan buruk musti diubah nih.

oiya rabu yang lalu gw diwawancara sama dheita, temen bimbingan umptn jaman dulu yang seharusnya juga kuliah di HI Unpar (kasihan kau dheit, fikom memang jahanamm :P ) disitu dia ngewawancara mengenai Unit Kegiatan Mahasiswa untuk diajuin sebagai artikel di Suplemen Kampus edisi Jabar Media Indonesia.. ya mengurai satu persatu sampai lumayan detail mengenai Atman Yoga. Disini ada orang usil bernama Siska (mau dipanggil dengan Siska aja, dengan ‘K’ dan bukan dengan ‘C’ later on Ketut gave her last name : Eleanor– dapet dari mana Tut ? sounds like Shelbys GT to me :P) anyway dia usil nanya mau dong diajarin soal Yoga…mampus deh gw tanggepin serius, makanya jangan usil ya sis :P Dari awal ketemu Siska ini rasanya di hati enak, selalu penuh senyum dan cukup punya Kasih di hati yang dibagikan pada customernya :) bla…bla..bla..akhirnya kerasa kaya kenal udah lamaaa banget, meskipun kayanya lebih deket ke ketut sih ya..tapi saat gw ngeliat dia, kaya ngeliat kakak gw sendiri..

And at last…

Every beginning has an end.

So this it…

I quit blogging.

thanks for reading my posts after all this time.

May The Force be with you, Hanin.
