Accent Card Visa is Alive

in Internet by

According to my previous post about accent card, my old accent card no longer available anymore. I have to request a new card from Accent card, Accent Card VISA.

Finally, this morning I got a new accent card visa to replace my old accent card. I’m so exciting 🙂

When you receive your bank account information (come with your new accent card visa), your bank account first needs to be activated. You can not log into your online banking until the account is active.

How to use your new card? You need to activate your new Bank account first then activate your VISA card.

Here is the sequence to activate your new BANK account, especially for withdraw PayPal:

  • Bank account will be activated as soon as it receives the first transfer (any amount, even Micro Deposit). Note: Paypal will make two Micro deposits when you add this new BANK account into your Paypal account. You can ask accent card visa, by email support[at]accentcardvisa[dot]com, to to obtain the bank information. As we know, we need Bank name, account type, ABA number, and account number. Tips from me: Don’t forget to add your name and card number in the first line of your email 😉
  • As soon as the first deposit is received, the bank account is live and can be accessed via online banking. You can login into www.tomatobank.com after 2-3 days from you add your bank information into your Paypal. The first transfer from Paypal will arrive at least 2-3 days. If you log in to the online banking and see and error message, stop. Do not keep trying! This means the deposit has not yet credited to your account. Repeated attempts will lock you out.
  • After Paypal have made two deposits, go to www.tomatobank.com, enter Access ID: your bank account number and password. The default password is Accent1$.
  • You will be prompted to change your password.
  • Please do not attempt multiple logins – you will lock yourself out of your account.

Here is the sequence to activate your accent card VISA:

  • In the USA, you can call an 800 number that is on the decal on your card.
  • Outside of the USA, use the card at an ATM ? put the card in the ATM and enter your PIN, select Balance Inquiry.Your card is now active
  • To withdraw from an ATM, select CHECKING.

That’s it. Have a great day!

Theme Redesign

in Journal by

I was a little bit bored with my old theme, Braga. I feel that template it too complex.

What’s wrong with my Braga? Actually, I really love that theme. Three columns, SEO and adsense optimization. Even I did not create that them from scratch but I really enjoyed it 😀

I used high screen resolution (1280 x 1024) and I really love it. My blog looks really great 😉 But suddenly I got problem with my monitor (17″). I have to change my monitor with a smaller one (15″). My monitor send to its seller to be repaired. This monitor have a maximum screen resolution 1024 x 768.

Many friends told me that they feel confused when open my Braga theme. My blog too crown with text. They confused how to start reading my blog. With my new monitor, just right now, I realize that problem. Yes, it’s too crown with text 😉

I decided to redesign my theme, back to two columns, seo and adsense optimization, smaller width (from 990px to 760px), put “big feed reader” icon, put another sidebar content in “second” page.

I hope this theme always nice looking and easy to read whatever the reader’s screen resolution (best for 800 x 600 or above).

Have a great day and gud lak!

PS: Any ideas, suggestions, or comments? Pass them…

Full Paypal Support for Indonesia in 2007

in Indonesia/Internet by

Abraham Olandres (Abe), posts in his blog that eBay and PayPal promised that full PayPal is largely possible by 2007. That is a good news and I hope that it’s real news.

Hopefully, full eBay and PayPal support would available to all “send only” countries, including my beloved country, Indonesia 😉

Therefore, I can receive money, send money, and withdraw my money even to US Bank. The main feature that I, and all Indonesian, need is receive money.

Hopefully eBay and PayPal full support will come true soon. Amen!

Yes, I’m an A-List Bloglebrity!

in Blogging/Fun/Wordpress by

Kineda.com launched a funny widget that ranks you whether as a A-List bloglebrity or not? This widget is designed using Technorati API.

According to Kineda “To be an A-List Bloglebrity on the Internet, it?s all about the amount of link love you can score”.

You will be the A-List bloglebrity of this widget if you could get more than 150 blogs linked to your blog in the past 180 days.

You can head over to Kineda and see if you’re a A-List Blogger or not. Here is the result for supriyadisw.net 😉

My Results:

With 523 links in the last 180 days, Technorati places supriyadisw.net in the very high authority group.

That makes you a A-List Blogger!

A-List Blogger

The Very High Authority Group (500 or more blogs linking in the last 6 months)
In the final group we see what might be considered the blogging elite. This group, which represents more than 4,000 blogs, exhibits a radical shift in post frequency as well as blog age. Bloggers of this type have been at it longer ? a year and a half on average ? and post nearly twice a day, an increase in posting volume of over 100% from the previous group. Many of the blogs in this category, in fact, are about as old as Technorati and we?ve grown up together. Some of these are full-fledge professional enterprises that post many, many times per day and behave increasingly like our friends in the mainstream media. As has been widely reported, the impact of these bloggers on our cultures and democracies is increasingly dramatic.

How about yours? Hopefully you are a A-list Bloglebrity too 🙂

AdSense Beautifier no longer Compliant with Adsense TOS

in Adsense/Article/Google by

Looks like a bad news for me. According to Inside AdSense about Ad and Image Placement Policy, is AdSense Beautifier no longer compliant with Adsense Terms of Service? Let’s take a look about this.

We ask that publishers not line up images and ads in a way that suggests a relationship between the images and the ads. If your visitors believe that the images and the ads are directly associated, or that the advertiser is offering the exact item found in the neighboring image, they may click the ad expecting to find something that isn’t actually being offered. That’s not a good experience for users or advertisers.

Publishers should also be careful to avoid similar implementations that people could find misleading. For instance, if your site contains a directory of Flash games, you should not format the ads to mimic the game descriptions.

AdSense beautifier comes with general images. That’s the reason why I always pending to show images relate to post’s keywords 😉 I always use general images to avoid mislead or confuse my visitors.

What if I place a space or a line between my images and my ads? Would that work?

No. If the ads and the images appear to be associated, inserting a small space or a line between the images and ads will not make the implementation compliant.

AdSense beautifier places a space or a line between images and ads and comes with general images that does not appear to be associated with ads.

Does this mean I can’t place ads on pages with images?

You can definitely place Google ads on pages containing images — just make sure that the ads and images are not arranged in a way that could easily mislead or confuse your visitors. For example, if you run a stock photography site with a catalog of thumbnail images, don’t line the ads up with the thumbnails in a way that could be misleading. Consider using a full border around your ads or changing your ad colors, for example.

As It says, you can use AdSense Beautifier — just make sure that the ads and images are not arranged in a way that could easily mislead or confuse your visitors. It’s depends on your images. You should use general images that does not appear to be associated with ads.

But You should always contact Google AdSense team to make sure your ads always compliants with Adsense Terms of Service. You should use AdSense Beautifier with your own risk as always I said 🙂

😀 Have a great day and good luck!

Ini adalah cerita tentang pengalaman penulis saat liburan lebaran kemaren. Walaupun udah rada kelamaan tapi pengin cerita wae.

Walaupun penulis tidak merayakan lebaran secara khusus, tapi penulis tetap ikutan tradisi mudik. Mudik ke kampung halaman yaitu Klaten.

Penulis rada “nekat” lebaran kali ini. Apaan hayo? Mudik kali ini laen daripada tahun-tahun sebelumnya. Penulis mudik naek motor. Waa kata orang sich nekat. Tapi kataku sih nekat banget 😀 Tapi tentu bukan tanpa alasan. Ada beberapa alasan pribadi yang kayanya gak semua orang perlu tahu. Cukup mereka menilai saja. Yah terserah meraka lah Weeks 😛

Penulis sebenernya berencana mudik pagi-pagi banget, yaitu hari jum’at 20 September 2006 sekitar jam 4-an. tapi kamis malemnya kerjaan di kantor numpuk banget dan harus segera beres, ya akhirnya pulang kantor rada telat. Mau istirahat bentar aja, eh.. malah bangun-bangun jam 12-an. Udah kagok gak bisa tidur akhirnya langsung pulang aja. Jadi akhirnya mulai berangkat dari Bandung jam 1 pagi.

Waa masih dingiin pisan naek motor. Tapi masih mending untuk menghindari macet 😀 Berangkat sendirian alias gak ada temennya. Rasanya gak enak juga sih. cepet bosen kali ya…

Mudik dengan tanpa pengetahuan yang jelas alias gak tahu jalan nih. Berbekal sebuah peta mudik dari koran kantor, nekat juga pantang mundur. Beruntung banyak juga pemudik yang naek motor. Jadinya ada temen, walaupun gak saling kenal. minimal senasib gitu loch…

Perjalanan secara umum lancar, tapi rasanya lama banget. Apalagi sudah mulai menjelang siang. Panas, berdebu, dan jalanan udah padat. Kondisi seperti ini membuat badan mulai terasa capek dan membosankan. Paling istirahat bentar di tepi jalan kalo gak kuat bosennya 😀

Akhirnya nyampai juga di Yogya sekitar jam 1-an siang. Udah gak kuat rasanya, akhirnya mampir ke rumah sepupu di daerah Berbah dan tepar di sana. Hahahah… Boboxz…zzz…zzz… (Udah hampir 12 jam naek motor :D)

Udah rada sorean, melanjutkan perjalanan ke Klaten. Dan sesampai di rumah melakukan ritual; mandi, makan, terus molor…. Hahahaha… Cuapeke poool….

Secara umum asyik juga punya pengalaman seperti ini. Naek motor kira-kira sejauh 500 km. Pengalaman yang pastinya gak akan terlupakan. Tapi kalau harus mengulang lagi, pikir-pikir dulu dech. Beberapa hal yang menjadi pertimbangan antara lain:

  • Mudik naek motor resikonya sangat tinggi. Motor merupakan kendaraan bermotor yang lemah dibanding dengan mobil, bus, dan truk. Kayanya para sopir bus dan truk suka mau menang sendiri. Ada beberapa oknum yang gak mau ngalah, yach akhirnya pengendara motor yang harus ngalah; daripada….
  • Selain tresiko dari pengguna jalan yang laen, pengendara motor juga sangat beresiko terhadap sasaran korban kejahatan. Harus hati-hati banget dech 🙂
  • Kalo mudik naek motor dianggap lebih murah, penulis pikir keselamatan lebih penting daripada “penghematan” yang dapat didapat dari mudik naek motor. Mengingat point nomor satu 😀
  • Kalo mudik memang hobby, memang menyenangkan. Apalagi kalo dilakukan beramai-ramai bersama teman-teman. Mudik asyiknya rame-rame Hahahah…

Beberapa tips yang mungkin berguna berdasarkan pengalaman penulis:

  • Kondisi badan harus sehat dan bugar
  • Kalau bisa jangan sendirian. Minimal berdua, setidaknya bisa gantian naek motor dan teman ngobrol untuk mengusir kejenuhan
  • Istirahat kalau badan sudah terasa capek dan jangan memaksakan diri. Banyak tempat-tempat isitirahat sepanjang jalur mudik
  • Makan yang cukup. Naek motor beresiko terserang masuk angin kalo makan gak cukup
  • Selalu bawa surat-surat kendaraan bermotor yang lengkap
  • Selalu mematuhi peraturan lalu lintas, baik ada maupun tidak ada petugas 😉
  • Jangan lupa berdoa agar selamat sampai tujuan
  • Tidak perlu buru-buru

Tahun depan mau mudik naik motor lagi? Gak tahu lah 😀
