Introducing Alit Mahendra dot Com

7 tahun yang lalu, pertama kalinya alit punya personal site dengan bangganya, masih berbasiskan Geocities dan masih available sampai sekarang.

4 tahun yang lalu, melalui RisTIE perkenalan dengan dunia web development membawa alit buat belajar lebih mendalam, mulai dari manajemen konten, desain visual, slicing, HTML, dan CSS, hingga PHP dan MySQL. iTz personal web pun berubah dari waktu ke waktu, dan meningkat dari statis menjadi dinamis. klo ga salah di geocities ada tuh list personal site-nya alit :D

dan hingga 2 tahun yang lalu, itz personal site (demikian personal site saya biasa saya sebut) sudah mengalami perubahan hingga 6 kali.

setelah hampir 2 tahun ini bergelut dengan blog yang membawa saya bertemu beberapa teman baru, saya memutuskan untuk membuat rumah baru saya di internet di alamat ini.

AMBER is my own engine

beberapa kali bekerja sebagai programmer dan berkali-kali merancang CMS membuat saya memutuskan untuk membuat CMS yang ter-optimal yang saya bisa untuk digunakan pada sebuah web profile.

dan keluarlah AMBER v 1.0 (A.M. Bramantya”s Extensible Room). memang belum sekelas wordpress atau berbagai macam template engine yang sudah banyak beredar di internet. but itz suits me very well till now.

dan tentunya masih banyak kekurangan dari engine ini dan mungkin juga dari situs ini, rencananya seluruh post di blog terdahulu akan saya pindahkan kesini. so for now.. sorry for the inconvenient and please enjoy itz personal site v.7

Mulai Merubah Haluan …

dulu awal2 ngenet sukanya cari crack buat sofwer-sofwer yang dipake di desktop.. hampir segala macem web yg isinya crack, keygen, dsb dibuka en didonlot klo yg dipengen ketemu.. well… namanya masa lalu…

eh ga tau kenapa akhirnya sekarang malah jadi suka nyariin friwer alias barang gratisan, hohoho. asline ngono kepikiran gara2 sofwer2 berbayar itu makin baru versinya makin berat.. berat n berat buat kekuatan desktop item dirumah, masio xp-ne si desktop ya masih bajakan… lom kuat beli yg ori… untungnya ajah neh notebook oldschool da pake XP Home Ori dari sononya (ada stiker Product Key dibawah), hihihi

mulai dari ACDSee yang diganti pake FastStone.. MySQL Front di migrasi ke Heidi SQLNero burner jadi StarBurn.. Nero image creator ke LC ISO Creator.. Image drive-nya pake Magic Disc.. dll.. dll.. ama yg trakhir… Kaspersky Internet Security ke AVGFree… whew… masih banyak neh yang harus dicari lagi…

ya memang sih friwer-friwer yg biasanya ukurannya kecil2 itu blom bisa 100% ngegantiin fungsi sofwer2 berbayar berukuran ratusan Mb, tapi klo nurut aku sih uda cukup bagus lah para friwer itu bekerja sesuai fungsinya… hemat space en efisien… masio akhirnya isi tu komputer lom bener2 bebas dari bajakan…

tapi klo emang pengen migrasi ke yang bener2 100% halal ya kayaknya Linux and Unix bisa dipertimbangkan… hihihi…

*btw lek butuh link tu friwer2, cari di gugel ae yah.. aku yo wes lali donlot dimana… hohoho 

Just Another Themes.. hohoho

baju baru lagi buat Bittersweet.. mirip ama proses ganti themes yang sebelumnya, cuman butuh 3 hari ajah emoticon dan hari terakhir (hari ini) emang cuman fokus buat masang en ngebenerin detil yang kecil2…

ga tau kenapa sempat ada masalah ama blockquote-nya… hadoohhhhhh…

benernya
aku mo make fitur css2 yang buat opacity di header, jadi headernya biar
bisa transparan gitu, cuman ga tau kenapa tulisannya ga bisa tetep
dibikin solid emoticon, pause dulu deh.

cara
tradisional memang cukup menguras otak… biar gambar sedikit, tapi tetep
aja loadingnya luambat, kenapa sih oggix ga pake div ajah… ide
desainnya sih hasil adaptasi aja dari beberapa themes-nya wordpress
(lupa apa ajah), pengennya sih adopsi banyak, cuman kayaknya koq neh
blogsome emang masih banyak kurangnya emoticon. OH om admin.. upgrade dunk servernya… eh bukan server sih yang harus di-apdet, lebih pas malah fitur wordpressnya yang harus ditambahin :D

jadi pengen buruan pindah ke rumah baru… emoticon

Does Your Website User-Friendly?

This article in no way covers everything you should keep in mind
prior to designing your website – there is much more. I have listed
five questions you should initially consider. I will be brief with each
question just to give you a few tips to get you started. Keep in mind
that testing is the most important task and should be conducted
frequently.

a. Do visitors know which page they are viewing?

The best way to ensure your visitors don’t get lost on your website is
if you title your pages. Make sure this title is the title in your
navigation area too. On your home page, or the one that is your
“index.html” or “index.htm”, you don’t have to title the page “HOME
PAGE”. It could be titled “About Us” or a page you want your visitors
to see as soon as they open your website. If your “index.html” page is
your “About Us” page, then put the header/title “About Us” at the top
of the page. In other words, every page should have a heading so that
your visitors will know what page they are currently viewing.

b. Can your visitor easily get to other pages using your navigational area?

Make sure that if you have 5 main pages in your website, there are 5
links in your navigation area with the exact titles as the titles on
your pages. With this in mind, don’t make your titles too long. If you
have articles on your website, make one link titled “Articles” in your
navigation area. On the “Articles” page, list your article titles in
the body of that particular page because the article titles will be
longer.

c. Does my background color and text color make a good combination?

You will need to take this into serious consideration. If your color
scheme is unappealing, visitors will leave no matter how good your
subject matter may be. If the combination causes eye strain or
headache, your visitors will leave your website and may not return.
Examples: blue background with red text, lime green background with
yellow text, red background with yellow text, etc. One other background
I would like to mention: patterned/tiled backgrounds. These can be
overwhelming to the eye. No text will be readable on these types of
backgrounds – at least not without difficulty. If you must have a
patterned/tiled background, make it look like a watermark – full color
patterned/tiled backgrounds will send your visitors away quicker than
ice cream melts on a hot stove.

d. Are my photos too big or do I have too many on a page?

If it takes longer than a few seconds for your webpage to load, then
your images are too big or you have too many on a page. It is not
necessary for a photo to take up the space of an entire browser window.
Too many photos, without a doubt, will slow your website down to a
crawl, even on a high-speed connection. Most people will leave your
website before the images finish downloading. You can make the images
small enough for a slideshow or create thumbnails so that your visitors
can select which images they want to see. Once your visitors click on
the image to see a larger view, make even that image small enough to
see all the details, but not big enough to slow down your website.
There are quite a few image editors out there to use – some are even
free. I use Macromedia’s Fireworks to optimize my images. They have a
tool where I can make my images smaller without losing clarity.

e. How do I test my pages for errors and user-friendliness?

Have a few other people look at your website. If you don’t think that
friends and family will want to hurt your feelings, find a site with
your color scheme; tell them that this website is not your website, but
you would like their opinion on the color scheme and if it is difficult
to read. You can also post your URL to various forums to ask them for a
critique of your website. If this is your first time testing, you can
ask for feedback so that you can get a variety of comments. Keep a copy
of the answers you get so that in the future you can refer back to what
people have said about certain features. Later on, you can put together
a checklist to go by for every website you design. I wouldn’t use just
one checklist to check all websites, but a checklist would be a good
start. Whether you are a beginner or expert website designer, you will
always need to test multiple times. You have a great deal of choices to
check for errors on your site. I like to use W3C’s validators to check
for errors and to bring my websites up to standard.

Making
your website user-friendly is one of the best things you can accomplish
for yourself and your visitors. Taking the time to ensure usability is
nothing compared to how many visitors you will lose if you have a
not-so-friendly website. Ensuring readability, fast downloading, and
performing multiple tests will get you started in the right direction
of designing user-friendly websites. Good Luck! Send me a link if you
want me to critique your website.

Yellowcard – You And Me And One Spotlight

Taken form Yellowcard newest album called Paper Walls, thank for Kaskus for the Download link and thanks for sweetslyrics for this lyrics

It won’t be long now
The music’s on loud
We’ll sing this song out
And then we’ll lie down
Ill hold you close then
Ill let you know when
The space and time bend
And then we’ll fall in

Go put on your best tonight
It’s you and me and one spotlight
One more show one last time
We are ready

Say you will be all around me
When your body sets your heart free
Say you will be all around me

Ill look for your eyes
To keep me inside
When everything dies
But one last sunrise
And when we stand there together not scared
I’ll dry your last tear
And then we’re just air

Go put on your best tonight
It’s you and me and not much time
To watch the world burning bright
*We are ready*

Say you will be all around me
When your body sets your heart free
Say you will be all around me
Say you’ll get me through the ending
Take my body set my heart free
Say you’ll get me through the ending

Go put on your best tonight
It’s you and me and one spotlight
One more show one last time
It won’t be long now

Say you will be all around me
When your body sets your heart free
Say you will be all around me
Say you’ll get me through the ending
Take my body set my heart free
Say you’ll get me through the ending
Say you will be (you won’t be long)
All around me (you won’t be long now)

What Kind of Thinker Are You?

itz just another blogthings random quiz, and here’s the result :

Your Thinking is Concrete and Sequential
You are precise, orderly, and realistic.
You tend to get to the point and get things done.
Difficult, detailed work is easy for you. You take things step by step.
Time limits aren’t a problem for you either. You work well with deadlines.

What does drive you crazy is any sort of task that isn’t precisely laid out.
You don’t like anything to be ambiguous. You prefer to deal with the facts at hand.

What Kind of Thinker Are You?

Wanna Try??? hohoho

Another Sad Happy Day

yes, itz should be a happy day and a happy time, but for one reason itz suddenly changed to a sad day, but… what reason do you think??? and yes itz nothing about them, itz always about me and all my selfishness…

itz about time that never stop counts, following us days by days, from one year to another, till this day.. and something have changed, but a lot haven’t… yes, it’ll never be like those “perfect wannabe” movies, but this is how we do shake our hearts, and put our step together, not a matter of time, not a matter of distance, but itz a matter of quality…

for those never ending days to come, we’ll always hoping, praying, and trying for a better days.. for a better tomorrow.. and till itz over.. i’ll always try to draw near…

and so sorry for this another sad happy day…..

itz time to . . .

you won’t get anything that you
want… itz not for you, maybe itz belong to someone else, and maybe
you’ll be better on another path, another way, or another jobs..
sometimes you should say itz enough… itz time to stop, and itz time to
choose something else…

maybe itz not for you right now, maybe tomorrow, or maybe it’ll never be for you…

itz
time to take some times to think about those things, a lot of things on
your mind that you want it as yours… maybe there’s something realistic
to fight for, but there’s another things that unrealistic for you right
now… and you should have known it, don’t you???

itz time to
brought down your own ego, whatever you are, you are just a normal
person, never be perfect, and if you keep on fighting this way, it’ll
only give you more hurt… just be more wise and mature, i know you can
do it, and you know you should do it… so, please… stop…

itz
time to choose… itz time to make a plan… itz time to make a priority
list… and at least.. itz time to make a move… put your head up and put
a smile upon your face emoticon

Thank You

time lead me to nowhere

N..
fate might break me
into pieces

but..
I will always be thankfull
that..
Once in my life’s journey

I’ve found my precious gift
in this indescribable world
