Reading is actually the key to learning. Why? To put it briefly, because it is the most complete, most available, cheapest, quickest, and most current source of learning! Further, it is a system of multiple learning--you learn more than one thing from good reading. And it is a method of continuous personal training for self-improvement.

The Goose's Gold

Dink, Josh, and Ruth Rose were best friends. One day they went to Florida on vacation. They were invited by Mrs. Hathaway, Ruth Rose’s grandmother, a very rich woman.

During their stay in Florida, the three kids went around the city to enjoy the atmosphere. They also went to the beach to see the beautiful scenery. When they were walking along the dock where boats were nestled in slips, they saw a man painting the golden letters on the side of a white boat. He was helped by his friend. The letters read “GOLDEN GOOSE”.

The kids were interested and had a chat with the men whose names were Chip and Spike. Chip explained that they used the boat to get gold, silver, and other kinds of jewelry from the sunken ships. He also showed the kids the gold coins they got from the sunken ships.

Several days later Mrs. Hathaway told the kids that there would be special guests coming. The kids were surprised to know that the guests were Chip and Spike. They came to cooperate with Mrs. Hathaway and her business partners. The two men said that there was a sunken ship beneath the sea and in the ship there were so many kinds of jewelry. They showed the gold they got from the ship. They offered the cooperation. They offered Mrs. Hathaway and her business partners to invest their money in their effort to bring up all the treasures from the sunken ship. And they promised they would share all the wealth with all the investors. The men needed some kinds of equipment which they could not afford to buy. Mrs. Hathaway and her business partners finally agreed to invest their money because they thought it was economically profitable.

Dink felt there was something wrong with the men. He told his two friends about his suspicion. Dink thought that the men were going to commit robbery. Then, the three kids tried to find more information. The next day they went to the men’s boat. There were not the men in the boat. So, the kids went aboard and looked around. It was so quiet. After several minutes they heard a voice. They did not know where to hide. Finally, they decided to hide in the boat’s tiny bathroom. They heard two men talking. They were Chip and Spike. The men were planning to drown the boat in order that other people would think the men got an accident and they could take away the money from the investors.

The kids took the life vests and wore it. The men had gone from the boat. Only in a short time was the boat full of water and sinking gradually. The kids tried hard to get out of the sinking boat. They struggled so hard and managed to get out. Then they were adrifted in the sea. After a long time floating in the sea, they saw a coast guard boat. They waved their hands. The boat came near and saved them.

The kids revealed all about the incidence. Finally, Chip and Spike were under arrest. The kids got a reward from a museum in Miami because the gold coins which Chip and Spike ever showed actually belonged to the museum. The men stole them. Mrs. Hathaway was very glad and proud of the kids. Dink, Josh, and Ruth Rose were brave kids. She thanked them so much and promised to invite them again to have vacation in the next season.

Cerita di atas diringkas dan diceritakan kembali oleh Hendro Darsono berdasarkan novel yang berjudul A to Z Mysteries: The Goose's Gold karya Ron Roy, diterbitkan oleh Random House, New York, 1999.

Information technology has made a great progress for the last several years. By using internet we can know many things happening around the world in a very short time. Sending emails, chatting, browsing have become some of activities which are done regularly by people. Another activity that we can do through internet is sending fax.

To send faxes easily and efficiently, we need a good fax server. This service provider must also be able to configure the system in such a way that we can send fax over IP enabled network. For more efficiency, we can also use VoIP fax. The costs that we spend can be reduced drastically and this, in turn, will save our resources.

Suatu hari seorang teman datang ke rumah membawa CPU. Katanya harddisk-nya rusak sehingga ia tidak bisa menggunakan komputer tersebut. Lalu saya bertanya kepadanya,"Percaya tidak kalau saya bisa menonton VCD melalui CPU itu?" Ia pun langsung menjawab,"Mana mungkin... komputernya aja rusak."

Saya pun langsung menyalakan komputer yang rusak itu, lalu masuk ke BIOS dan mengubah prioritas booting ke CD. (Sebelumnya saya sudah memasukkan sebuah CD berisi program GeeXboX ke CD drive.) Setelah program jalan, saya bisa menikmati video dari VCD yang saya putar melalui CPU tersebut. Teman saya itu terheran-heran dan berkata,"Kan komputernya belum diperbaiki, kok bisa menonton VCD?"

Sebenarnya hal ini bukanlah sesuatu yang istimewa atau aneh. Program GeeXboX memang dirancang untuk bekerja sebagai media center. Ia bisa menjalankan berbagai file video, audio, maupun gambar. Program yang tampilannya sederhana namun kinerjanya luar biasa ini bekerja dalam platform Linux dan bisa dijalankan langsung melalui CD. Jadi kita tidak membutuhkan sistem operasi maupun harddisk. (Kalau mau memakai harddisk sih juga bisa. Dalam hal ini kita bisa menjalankan file multimedia yang ada dalam harddisk.)

Mungkin ada di antara Anda yang bertanya,"Apakah CPU harus memiliki 2 CD/DVD drive untuk menonton VCD karena satu drive sudah dipakai oleh CD GeeXboX dan satu lagi untuk VCD?" Jawabannya,"Tidak!" Cukup satu CD/DVD drive saja. Kenapa? Karena setelah booting, program akan di-load ke dalam RAM (Random Access Memory), kemudian dengan cerdasnya CD tray akan terbuka secara otomatis dan kita bisa mengeluarkan CD program GeeXboX tersebut. Nah, pada saat mau menonton VCD tinggal masukkan saja VCD-nya seperti biasa.

Saya pertama kali mencoba program ini pada awal 2006. Ukuran file-nya sangat kecil. Hanya beberapa Mega Byte saja. Spesifikasi hardware yang dibutuhkan juga sangat ringan. Saya pernah mencobanya di komputer lama yang masih menggunakan prosesor P1, P2, P3 dan AMD Duron. Program dapat berjalan dengan baik, bahkan sangat cepat karena kita tidak perlu masuk ke Windows. Kesimpulannya... Jika Anda memiliki komputer lama yang harddisk-nya rusak, Anda bisa mengalihgunakannya sebagai media center sederhana.

Untuk keluaran versi terbaru program ini saya belum mencoba. Jika Anda ingin mencobanya, silahkan download di situs GeeXbox.
