XPS Annotator can't print specific page

Current version of the XPS Annotator (version 1.22) will not allow you to print specific pages, you must print the entire document, this is XPS Annotator 1.22 limitation.

In the upcoming release, this problem should be resolved. It has been more than a year I did not update my software to a newer version, why? I never received a complaint that there is an error in the XPS Annotator, so could be considered if it has been very stable.

I will release a new version if there is an error fixes and feature additions. For a reminder if XPS Annotator has reached 50K of downloads on CNET.

Google Adsense quite promising

I always like new things, last year I decided to try Google Adsense in one of my website that is www.xpsdev.com. You can read my post about this.

Quite interesting because visitors of the website is less than 750 visitors per day.

Moving my Drupal sites into new server

Yesterday I moved my Drupal sites; Danetsoft and XPSDev into new server, previously I use U.S. based server and now I use Indonesia based server in Jakarta. It took me one day to moving all the data I have into new server.

Both server has phpMyAdmin since it using cPanel as site server administration, so just export and import the database and go, maybe the most consuming time is when moving the files. But All is in hand now, and I'm glad with the result (at least for now).

Let me know if you have any problems when accessing the sites.

MailChimp: Another Drupal newsletter solutions

Module are commonly used for newsletter solutions in Drupal is Simplenews, very cheap since Simplenews sending the email from your own server. But what if the number of subscribers reached more than 10.000 people? would be very aggravate your server if you sent it from your server.

In addition Simplenews module, there is also another excellent module like MailChimp. MailChimp module provides integration with the MailChimp email delivery service. But the free version is limited to 2000 subscribers and must not exceed 12.000 emails per month.

MailChimp is worth your consideration if you need a newsletter solutions that is different from Simplenews.

Work from home

Telecommuting is a work that workers gain flexibility in terms of place and time. Telecommuting can be done from anywhere, such as houses, cafes, or other locations. Like the motto often pronounced "work is something you do, not something you travel to".

Since the year 2009 I decided to work from home as a freelancer, and in 2010 I decided to accept the offer to work full-time at Danish IT company as a web developer, themer and web consultant, of course I still accept any freelance work through Danetsoft.

There are several main reason why I chose to work long-distance model (foreign companies):
  • Not limited by place and time.
  • Salaries are standardized with foreign IT workers.
For salaries, indeed in Indonesia is still far behind but if you want to become an entrepreneur can certainly be another outcome.
