Read ebook in PDF on primitive java enabled Cell Phone

September 15, 2009

Few days ago, a friend from Java recommend me a book, God Wants You Dead. I found it on scribd and instantly interested because of its cover. Then after some dizzyness because of it crazy first pages, i decided to read it all.

Unfortunately, it is a PDF, so i must read it on PC. I’m quite mobile, and i dont have any netbook. I want to read it as normal physical book, while lying on my bed, before a nap or sleeping at night. Buying it from amazon, is not yet an option. While electric book reader still too expensive.

So i tried to look a way to put it on my phone, with no avail. My phone is too primitive to handle a pdf. Then i found my savior at mobiles24.com. GamerGal converted the PDF so i can download it as jar and install it on my K618. Tonight, i will read the book from my phone.

I wonder how she convert it, maybe someday i’ll ask her, when i finish with this crazy book 🙂 If you need to convert a PDF, you could try to find her at mobiles24, maybe she will help you. 😀

blogging using very slow connection

April 21, 2009

Right now, I am at Tulang Bawang. A region where Telkomsel Flash’s network not existed yet. So I am forced to use GPRS only connection.

The speed is insanely slow, you’ll need eons to open BCA, and you wont have enough lifetime to open Bank Mandiri‘s ultra heavy site.

To protect my sanity, i decided to stop after some failed transactions. Then before i unplug my cell phone, suddenly I remembered that I must write an update for this blog.

BUT, using this hellish connection, how could I fullfill my stupid ‘continuous 21 update’ ??

Fortunately, i remembered m.wordpress.com. A mobile version of wordpress.com’s interface. It is light enough to be loaded easily.

So i write this offline using scribefire (a firefox addon), give it some links, copy the HTML source, then paste it on wordpress’s mobile post page. Kun fa ya kun! Haha. *i wish this will work, i wont be able to edit it until i get back to my normal connection*

Done.
