Compare LifeLock and Debix

Identity theft often occurs and it is very dangerous because unauthorized people can open our account. This illegal action can cause a severe financial loss because the doers can make a transaction in our name. Preventive action needs to be taken before it is too late. Identity theft prevention can be done in several ways. One of them is using the services provided by the Identity Protection Network. This network was established to protect organizations and individuals from bad people who want to commit identity theft.

As one of the members of the Identity Protection Network, LoudSiren in partnership with Debix always tries to help the customers by giving a strong identity protection. For example, when someone is attempting to access the customers’ account and wants to apply for credits, the customers will receive a warning call. So, the customers can take a quick action by approving or declining the application.

When we compare LifeLock and Debix, we can find some similarities and differences. The similarities are both of them give $1,000,000 guarantee to the customers, reduce junk mails, and receive free credit reports. But the differences are the former imposes higher annual cost, does not give prevention to the telemarketing phone calls, and does not keep cell phone number private from creditors while the latter gives all those services with lower cost and even give some other services as well.

Custom Writing

When learning a language, a great number of people say that writing is much more difficult than speaking. In writing you have to follow strict grammatical rules. In addition, you also need to have a good mastery of vocabulary. You must use the appropriate diction for your writing. Are those enough? No… No… No…. You must also have a good writing style and make the contents of your writing unified and coherent.

What are the uses of having a good writing skill? Well… of course, there are a lot of advantages that you can get from your writing skill. You can work as a writer or an author; you can work as a copywriter; you can work as a ghostwriter; or you can also work as a copyeditor in publishing companies. Another advantage of having a good writing skill is that you can write your essays or your scientific paper with a good quality. But unfortunately, a lot of people do not have a good writing skill and they get confused when they are going to graduate from an educational institution because one of the requirements to finish their study is that they have to write an essay or a scientific paper.

Considering this condition, CustomWritings.com was established to give writing assistance to those who do not have a good writing skill or those who do not have much time to write essays or papers. These groups of people can order or buy research paper. Those who need essays can also buy essay. All materials are written by professional writers. So, you do not need to worry about the quality and the authenticity of the writing. You can also buy term paper from this site. CustomWritings.com always tries to avoid plagiarism. So, your paper will not be sold to other customers. All essays or papers are written from the scratch!

Car Insurance

Prevention is better than a cure. This saying is very popular. It is right that it is better for us to be prepared for the bad things that might happen to us. Nobody wants to go through difficult situation in their lives. That is why, a lot of people prefer joining insurance programs to get protection. As a matter of fact, there are various kinds of insurance programs: auto insurance, life insurance, health insurance, etc.

Talking about auto insurance or car insurance, people begin to be interested in this insurance program because of several factors. Some of the factors that I can mention here are: first, to avoid high costs of auto repair when they get accidents and second, to anticipate auto theft. As we know, when we get an accident (big or small accident), we need much money to repair our car. Auto theft has also become a serious problem. According to the information that I got from CarInsuranceRates.com, a car is stolen every 26 seconds in America and nearly half of these are never recovered. Do you know why? Because they have been scrapped for parts or smuggled to another country. If you want to know more about auto insurance, the rates, and want to read good articles related to this insurance, you can visit CarInsuranceRates.com.

Mengenal Linux Ubuntu 7.10 Live CD (Bagian Kelima)

Silahkan baca lagi Bagian Pertama, Bagian Kedua, Bagian Ketiga, dan Bagian Keempat.

OpenOffice.org Impress (Presentation)

Program aplikasi OpenOffice.org Impress (Presentation) memiliki fungsi yang sama seperti program aplikasi Microsoft PowerPoint pada sistem operasi Microsoft Windows. Untuk masuk ke program ini, kliklah Application – Office – OpenOffice.org Presentation. Setelah terbuka, program akan menampilkan wizard yang menanyakan apakah kita akan membuka presentasi yang masih kosong (empty presentation), apakah kita akan membuat presentasi dari template yang sudah ada (From Template), atau apakah kita akan membuka file presentasi yang sudah ada (Open Existing Presentation). Pada contoh ini saya memilih From Template, kemudian memilih Blue untuk presentation dan Subtle Accent untuk presentation background.

Pada bagian atas program aplikasi OpenOffice.org Impress (Presentation) ini terdapat menu-menu standar yang fungsi dan cara operasinya serupa dengan menu-menu pada Microsoft PowerPoint 2003. Adapun menu-menu tersebut adalah: File, Edit, View, Insert, Format, Tools, Slide Show, Window, dan Help. Bagi Anda yang sudah terbiasa membuat slide presentasi dengan Microsoft PowerPoint 2003, saya yakin Anda juga akan bisa membuat slide presentasi dengan OpenOffice.org Impress ini. Perhatikanlah gambar tampilan OpenOffice.org Impress yang saya jalankan pada sistem operasi Linux Ubuntu 7.10 Live CD ini!

Jika Anda perhatikan layar sebelah kanan, di situ terdapat sejumlah layout yang sudah disediakan dan dapat digunakan sesuai dengan kebutuhan. Beberapa contoh layout tersebut adalah:

  • Title, Text à terdiri dari judul dan teks isi
  • Title, Chart à terdiri dari judul dan grafik
  • Title, Spreadsheet à terdiri dari judul dan lembar kerja atau tabel
  • Title, ClipArt, Text à terdiri dari judul, gambar, dan teks isi
  • Title, Chart, Text à terdiri dari judul, grafik, dan teks isi

Dalam contoh yang terlihat pada gambar di atas, saya menggunakan layout Title, ClipArt, Text.

Selain layout, di layar sebelah kanan juga terdapat Custom Animation untuk memberikan berbagai efek animasi dan Slide Transition untuk mengatur tampilan peralihan slide.

Pada saat menyimpan file, OpenOffice.org Impress akan menyimpannya dengan ekstensi .odp (OpenDocument Presentation). Agar file yang telah Anda buat itu kompatibel dan bisa dibuka pada program aplikasi Microsoft PowerPoint, sebaiknya pada saat menyimpan, Anda ubah terlebih dahulu file type-nya menjadi Microsoft PowerPoint 97/2000/XP (ppt).

OOT (out of topic):

Banyak pengunjung blog ini yang menanyakan pekerjaan atau profesi saya yang sebenarnya karena mereka lihat di blog ini ada buku-buku saya, sementara mereka juga pernah berkunjung ke blog saya yang lain yang berisi pelajaran bahasa Inggris dan blog yang berisi pengetahuan bidang komputer. Bagi yang masih penasaran karena belum saya jawab, silahkan Anda lihat pada gambar di atas.

Withdraw dari PayPal ke Rekening Mandiri Ternyata Berhasil Juga

Setelah sukses melakukan withdrawal (penarikan) dolar dari rekening PayPal ke rekening Bank Niaga, akhirnya timbul juga rasa penasaran yang mendalam pada diri saya untuk melakukan withdrawal ke rekening Bank Mandiri. Kenapa saya bilang penasaran? Karena saya sudah membaca banyak komentar di beberapa blog bahwa sahabat-sahabat blogger gagal melakukannya. Alasannya adalah mereka tidak mendapatkan kode sandi bank dari Customer Service Bank Mandiri. Ada juga yang menceritakan pengalamannya (tapi saya lupa waktu itu baca di blog siapa… maaf ya bener-bener lupa) bahwa ia bertanya pada Customer Service dan diberikan 7 digit kode sandi tersebut. Namun, setelah ia mencoba withdraw, ia masih juga mengalami kegagalan sehingga terkena potongan biaya.

Oke… saya akan melanjutkan cerita saya. Sekitar 2 minggu sebelum mencoba melakukan withdrawal, saya mencoba mengirim email ke Customer Service Bank Mandiri melalui situsnya. Saat itu saya juga memberikan kritikan tajam pada Bank Mandiri mengenai hal-hal yang sering dialami oleh para sahabat blogger lain yang terjun dalam dunia bisnis internet. Namun kritikan saya tersebut sepertinya tidak ada pengaruh apa-apa. Saya menerima email balasan. Tapi ya itu… nomor kode sandi bank yang terdiri dari 7 digit tidak juga diberikan. Pihak bank cuma memberikan kode Swift yang jelas bukan merupakan kode yang dimaksudkan oleh PayPal. Dalam email itu dijelaskan bahwa Bank Mandiri tidak memiliki kode sandi bank apapun. Yang ada hanya kode Swift yang berlaku untuk semua cabang Bank Mandiri. Email ini membuat saya bertambah bingung sekaligus jengkel.

Akhirnya saya memberanikan diri untuk melakukan uji coba dengan menarik dana saya dari PayPal ke rekening Mandiri. Karena baru uji coba, saya hanya mentransfer sedikit saja, yaitu sebesar $48. Tentu saja saya tidak menggunakan kode Swift yang diberikan oleh Bank Mandiri karena kode itu jelas-jelas bukan yang diminta oleh PayPal. Saya mulai login ke account PayPal dan memilih tab Withdraw dengan pilihan ke bank lokal. Saya isikan data saya dan pada kotak isian kode sandi bank saya masukkan kode Bank Mandiri, yaitu 008. Sedangkan sisa 4 digit-nya saya ambil 3 digit pertama dalam buku tabungan dengan ditambahkan 0 di depannya sehingga lengkap menjadi 7 digit. Lalu saya klik Add Bank dan sebentar kemudian ada pemberitahuan bahwa proses Add Bank berhasil. Saya diminta menunggu proses transfer tersebut yang akan memakan waktu 5-7 hari kerja. Pemberitahuan ini belum membuat saya senang karena masih juga ragu apa bisa berhasil atau tidak. Akhirnya, saat yang dinanti pun tiba. Waduh… tidak nyangka banget! Proses withdraw dari PayPal ke rekening Bank Mandiri ternyata berhasil dan hanya memakan waktu 6 hari.

Mudah-mudahan saja cerita pengalaman ini bisa menjadi masukan bagi rekan-rekan blogger lain yang selama ini bingung karena tidak bisa withdraw ke Bank Mandiri atau bagi mereka yang pernah mencoba tetapi gagal.

Wholesale Clothing

I just browsed a site which offers wholesale clothing. Prices are set based on the quantity of the products you buy. So, the more you buy, the more money you can save. There are many kinds of products you can order, such as shirts, blouses, jackets, vests, work pants, caps, bags, and briefcases. So, if you are interested in ordering wholesale clothes or wholesale shirts from this site, for example, just fill out the order form. The process is easy. You can make a payment by using credit cards or via PayPal.

Withdraw dari PayPal ke Rekening Niaga Berhasil

Setelah terjun di dunia bisnis internet selama sekitar 3 bulan, akhirnya saya juga berkeinginan untuk menarik (withdraw) uang dolar saya di PayPal ke rekening Bank Niaga. Awalnya proses tidak berjalan lancar karena kode sandi bank lokal yang disyaratkan PayPal belum saya peroleh. Saya sudah menanyakan hal tersebut kepada pegawai bank, tapi jawaban yang diberikannya tidak memuaskan, bahkan ia bicara ngalor-ngidul tak tentu arah. Nyata betul ia tidak menguasai persoalan!

Ternyata saya juga mengalami apa yang sering dialami oleh para sahabat blogger lain yang terjun di dunia bisnis internet, yaitu masalah ketidakprofesionalan pegawai bank. Sungguh ironis memang… Mereka tidak tahu apa itu PayPal!!!

Karena informasi yang diberikan oleh petugas bank tidak memberikan petunjuk yang berarti, maka saya coba mengambil inisiatif sendiri. Saya ingat sekitar dua bulan lalu saya pernah membaca komentar-komentar di beberapa blog mengenai kode sandi bank yang diminta PayPal, yaitu berjumlah 7 digit yang merupakan kombinasi kode bank yang diberikan oleh BI dan kode bank cabang. Tapi saya belum berani mencobanya karena saya tidak kenal dengan orang-orang yang memberikan komentar tersebut. Lalu saya mencoba menghubungi Mas Iwan dan ia memberikan solusinya. Ternyata penjelasan yang diberikan oleh Mas Iwan sama seperti penjelasan yang pernah saya baca melalui komentar blog di atas. Kali ini saya menjadi benar-benar yakin, pertama karena Mas Iwan adalah sahabat saya dan kedua karena Mas Iwan sudah mempunyai pengalaman withdraw di bank yang sama.

Untuk menguji sukses atau tidak withdraw yang akan saya lakukan, saya mencoba mentransfer dalam jumlah kecil terlebih dahulu, yaitu sebesar $50. Setelah saya memasukkan informasi bank ke PayPal, proses Add Bank berhasil. Lalu ada pemberitahuan dari PayPal lewat email bahwa prosesnya akan memakan waktu 5-7 hari kerja. Setelah saya tunggu seminggu kemudian, ternyata… alhamdulillah… proses withdraw itu sukses. Untuk memastikannya lagi, saya coba withdraw dalam jumlah yang lebih besar, yaitu $500. Dan kembali… proses withdraw itu sukses tanpa hambatan apapun. Karena masih terasa seperti mimpi atas keberhasilan withdraw tersebut, satu minggu kemudian saya coba lagi withdraw sejumlah $320 dan juga berhasil.

Kesimpulan yang bisa ditarik di sini adalah sebenarnya proses withdraw dari PayPal ke bank lokal itu mudah dilakukan. PayPal tidak menyusahkan kita. Hanya sayangnya petugas bank sendiri yang membuatnya susah dan terkadang membikin emosi kita sebagai nasabah naik. Saya sependapat dengan Indradiky bahwa customer service bank-bank lokal sebaiknya diberikan diklat khusus tentang PayPal dan hal-hal lain yang berhubungan dengan bisnis internet.

Mengenal Linux Ubuntu 7.10 Live CD (Bagian Keempat)

Silahkan baca lagi Bagian Pertama, Bagian Kedua, dan Bagian Ketiga.

OpenOffice.org Calc (Spreadsheets)

Pada bagian terdahulu saya sudah saya membahas mengenai program aplikasi OpenOffice.org Writer (Word Processor). Pada Bagian Keempat ini kita akan melihat sekilas mengenai OpenOffice.org Calc (Spreadsheets).

Saya yakin Anda sudah sangat akrab dengan program aplikasi Microsoft Excel yang berjalan di bawah platform sistem operasi Microsoft Windows. Pada sistem operasi Linux Ubuntu 7.10 ini digunakanlah program aplikasi OpenOffice.org Calc (Spreadsheets). Tampilan program ini mirip sekali dengan tampilan Microsoft Excel 2000/XP/2003, begitu juga dengan fungsi-fungsi dan cara pengoperasiannya. Jadi tidak perlu saya bahas panjang lebar mengenai hal tersebut.

Untuk masuk ke program aplikasi OpenOffice.org Calc, klik Application – Office – OpenOffice.org Spreadsheets. Lihatlah tampilannya! Sangat mirip dengan Microsoft Excel, bukan? Pada bagian atas terdapat beberapa menu (File, Edit, View, Insert, Format, Tools, Data, Window, Help) yang juga terdapat pada Microsoft Excel 2000/XP/2003. Jadi Anda tidak perlu khawatir! Kalau Anda bisa mengoperasikan Microsoft Excel, Anda juga akan bisa mengoperasikan OpenOffice.org Calc. Pada OpenOffice.org Calc ini Anda dapat menggunakan rumus, fungsi, membuat chart, melakukan penyaringan database, dan masih banyak hal lainnya. Namun, pada saat penyimpanan file, Anda harus lebih cermat sebab, secara default, OpenOffice.org Calc akan menyimpan file Anda dalam format atau ekstensi .ods (OpenDocument Spreadsheets). Jika Anda ingin menyimpan file Anda dalam format yang sama dengan format yang digunakan oleh Microsoft Excel, maka Anda harus mengubah file type-nya terlebih dahulu menjadi Microsoft Excel 97/2000/XP (.xls)

Mengenal Linux Ubuntu 7.10 Live CD (Bagian Ketiga)

Kalau dalam Sistem Operasi Microsoft Windows kita mengenal program aplikasi Microsoft Office, maka dalam Sistem Operasi Linux Ubuntu Live CD ini digunakan program aplikasi OpenOffice.org versi 2.3. Saya sudah mengenal OpenOffice.org beberapa tahun lalu. Waktu itu saya menggunakan Linux Knoppix yang menyertakan program aplikasi OpenOffice.org versi 1.x.

Pengoperasian OpenOffice.org ini sangat mudah karena antarmukanya mirip dengan Microsoft Office 2000/XP/2003. Jadi, Anda tidak perlu khawatir akan menghadapi banyak kesulitan saat bekerja dengan OpenOffice.org. Sebagai perbandingan, kalau pada Microsoft Office kita kenal Microsoft Office Word, maka pada OpenOffice.org kita menggunakan OpenOffice.org Word Processor (Writer). Untuk program aplikasi setara Microsoft Excel, kita menggunakan OpenOffice.org Spreadsheets. Sedangkan untuk Microsoft PowerPoint, kita menggunakan OpenOffice.org Presentation.

Sekarang mari kita lihat satu per satu.

OpenOffice.org Word Processor (Writer)

Seperti yang sudah saya jelaskan di atas, OpenOffice.org Word Processor (Writer) bisa disetarakan dengan Microsoft Office Word pada Sistem Operasi Microsoft Windows. Cara kerjanya pun sama. Untuk masuk ke program aplikasi OpenOffice.org Word Processor (Writer), kliklah tombol Application – Office – OpenOffice.org Word Processor. Pada program aplikasi OpenOffice.org Word Processor (Writer) ini terdapat beberapa menu sebagai berikut:

  • File (New, Open, Save, Save As, Close, Print, Page Preview, dll.)
  • Edit (Cut, Copy, Paste, Find & Replace, Undo, dll.)
