12 More Photography Quotes I Should Know

  1. “Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary.” – Peter Lindbergh (submitted by Brian)
  2. “The important thing is not the camera but the eye.” – Alfred Eisenstaedt (submitted by Beate)
  3. “There are two people in every photograph: the photographer and the viewer” – Ansel Adams (submitted by Scott)

Koneksi Wireless di ruang Kelas Magister Informatika ITB

Di post ini saya cuman coba share hasil speedtest dari koneksi internet ITB melalui Wireless Tehnik Lingkungan ITB. Tehnik Lingkungan? Ya, memang benar. Karena di gedung kelas di STEI dekat Lab Sistem dan Sinyal ini (STEI) tidak ada wireless network yang bisa digunakan! Ya jadinya di kelas saya harus menumpang ke wireless gedung sebelah yang berjarak hampir 75m. 

Hasil test pagi ini (Jam 9an), cukup mengejutkan karena saya hampir bisa mendapatkan 1mbps untuk hasil speedtest ke San Diego, CA (USA). Wow, hasil yang cukup mengejutkan bagi saya sendiri. Walaupun sepertinya sangat jarang bisa mendapatkan hasil ini di ruang kelas yang fakir sinyal ini. 

Yah semoga aja ke depannya pihak STEI mau menyediakan wireless access point yang dapat diakses secara bebas oleh mahasiswa magisternya.
