Enable SMS Forwarding between iOS 8.1 and Yosemite

No code's shown on Mac?

Me too. 

I have this solution after googling  DuckDuckGoing. 

here the excerpt 

I've found a solution on another forum and it worked for me:

Try this: Go to your iPhone Messages settings and turn off iMessages and turn it on again. Then go to the iMessages Settings on your Mac and do the same. After that it worked for me. Also make sure to activate your telephone number in the iMessages settings on your Mac.
and yeah, it works, :)


Keynote on Linux

No, there's no native iWork on my Debian Sid.

It has done via iCloud Drive and iCloud Keynote.

My keynote, wrote it using my old OS X Maverick (or maybe even when my MacBook is still using Lion or Snow Leopard, I forgot), can be accessed via Chrome browser.

Stuck on "Upgrading" iCloud Drive

Well, nothing we can do about it.

But, just remember that sometime the process time on apple based device (and others platform as well) didn't as reliable.

The "1 minute remaining" installation message that took 2 hours to finish.

The Mail app sending message that tell "34 minute remaining" but actually it's sent and we got bewildered when receiving reply of our message that "didn't" sent yet.  

So, be patient, :)

You could soft reset it, power-off and then turn it on again, or another reset, press home button and power button at same time until the device turned off and boot by itself.

Got some solution from discussions.apple.com, flip the airplane switch to on, it'll gave the error message, flip it to off again, and all is well, the iCloud drive status is on. Weird, not pretty solution, but worked, so no problem for me.

But that won't guarantee the problem is solved for everyone, :)

Some succeed by using it and some didn't.

The alternative is, again, be patient, :)


Trace Animation on Keynote

I used it on my OS X Yosemite, still prefer Anagram+Anvil/Appear combo though, :)



Crazy wifi.id Hotspot Corner Speed

Bagaimana kecepatan di wifi.id? Pake speedy instan? 

I’m using intel voucher and what the…  

The 10 Mbps speed is reached, 

wow. 

I upgraded my Garage Band, all iWorks suite (Page, Numbers, Keynote), iMovie, and others (that means download almost 5GB data), and it done under 15 minutes, heheh...

Pake Windows 8.1 di  virtual machine pun masih ok, download hampir 1 giga update-an pun gak sampe 15 menit.

Agak beda dengan Ubuntu Virtual Machine, saat download update hanya mencapai 3Mbps, but, have been deal with 512Kbps before, it's still crazy speed.

The Yosemite

Closing Apps on OS X Yosemite is ‘true’ Closing

yup, maybe because I update it to latest version or whatnot, the iWorks suite behave differently. It totally close the apps, no dot on the dock

Still tinkering around to get it work with my iPhone 4s, :)

Coherence on Ubuntu 14.04

When entering Coherence mode in my Ubuntu 14.04 virtual machines, using unity desktop, it asked to disable display visual effects in the virtual machine. 

After DuckDuckGo-ing, it happened that not just the visual effect that must be disabled, but entire unity desktop and have to add gnome-session flshback, :( 

Anyway, the coherence is not what I expect.

Top panel still there, bottom panel is still present

It is the same gnome with OS X background, so I back to Unity again, no coherence mode. It's okay. :)

The Safer Ubuntu

Usually, UNIX-like have weakness (at least that what I though) on password changing. Take the OS X, by default we don't have root password, but we could just $sudo su and then #passwd and tadaa..., we have super users password, we are super user.

but take a look at my ubuntu terminal

nugroho@ubuntu:~$ passwd
Changing password for nugroho.
(current) UNIX password: 
Enter new UNIX password: 
Retype new UNIX password: 
Bad: new and old password are too similar
Enter new UNIX password: 
Retype new UNIX password: 
passwd: password updated successfully
nugroho@ubuntu:~$ passwd
Changing password for nugroho.
(current) UNIX password: 
Enter new UNIX password: 
Retype new UNIX password: 
Sorry, passwords do not match
passwd: Authentication token manipulation error
passwd: password unchanged
nugroho@ubuntu:~$ 
nugroho@ubuntu:~$ passwd
Changing password for nugroho.
(current) UNIX password: 
Enter new UNIX password: 
Retype new UNIX password: 
passwd: password updated successfully
nugroho@ubuntu:~$ 
.

Finally, Ubuntu 4.10 on Parallels Desktop

Express installs make Parallels Tool installed by default.

It created some problem
Problem warning at first boot
No desktop at all, just plain background, no top bar nor side unity menu

It can be solved with this

enter commandline mode using fn-ctrl-option-f1
enter username and password
type commad below
$ cd /etc/X11
$ ls (there should be file named xorg.conf.XXXXXXXX )
$ sudo mv xorg.conf.XXXXXXXX /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/xorg.conf
$ export DISPLAY=:0
$ gsettings reset org.compiz.core:/org/compiz/profiles/unity/plugins/core/ active-plugins

now reboot using $ sudo init 6

yup, the top bar is there, also side Unity bar, but

Chaotic OS WeekEnd


It happened because of parallel desktop,  

on my Macbook Air with OS XMavericks. 

We know, it have good relationship with Windows, so installing 7 or even 8.1 is breeze. 

But, how about linux? well, not so
