Download Free Upin & Ipin Wallpaper for Blackberry & iPhone

Betul Betul Betul

My daughter favorite’s cartoon is none other than Upin & Ipin. Everyday she will asked me to watch Upin & Ipin : Pengembaraan Bermula every single day. Now I can memorize every single script in the movie :).

I would say that Malaysian are proud of our local animation product. Even Indonesian are a big fan of Upin & Ipin. Malaysian Government even use Upin & Ipin as ambassador to close the gap between Malaysia and Indonesia.

FYI, Les Copaque the company behind Upin & Ipin has move a step forward in animation industry. They are developing game base on Upin & Ipin series and characters . This is really a good news and can promote their brand all around the world. Hopefully their new game product will be a success. (more…)

Fixing Old office Konica Minolta Printer

In my office I have a few printer and old pc that are left alone. People here like to use laptop and print using Ricoh Aficio 2283C, that is connected thru LAN. Fast and convenience.

Yesterday my boss asked me to print a large document for our training. We have 2 unit of cheap canon printer which have been modified. Where you add CSS ink tank like this :

Pixma with CSS Ink

its look simple and really cheap. BUT it  will not last long. This system known as CSS system will face a lot of problem like my 2 printer here. Always have problem.  Ink will flow from the ink tank to the cartridge inside the printer only using gravity and pressure. So as long the ink flow is good than it will have no problem. If not you will be like a small kid playing with water color to fix this kind of printer. So messy playing with ink. : ). I even sucked the ink using my mouth to make sure the ink read the cartridge. Yuckkk!

PagePro no so PRO

Back to my Konica Minolta printer, my boss left it there for quite sometime. He said that it failed to print anymore and all sort of error. Yesterday i took some time to check and install with my Ubuntu.  Well amazingly it worked. I use the PPD driver and install in CUPS. CUPS is the standards-based, open source printing system developed by Apple Inc. for Mac OS® X and other UNIX®-like operating systems. But its quite slow because its not quite compatible with my Ubuntu.

I try to use the PagePro 1300W with my Window Vista. At first it did not work. Vista failed to detect the printer. Until i download the driver from Konica Minolta site. The trick is to change the LP1 to Virtual USB it on printer properties. That is why  my boss thought  the printer was rosak.

Anyway after print a few documents, the printer jammed with paper. I already took it out but still failed to print. I took out the toner and saw a piece of paper already blend with the hot roller. Everytime I print the paper will get stuck due to that roller. So this time its hardware problem. I already tried to unscrew the printer but failed. I have no proper tools. The one that I have here is for small screw :).

In my opinion, if I did open the printer to reach the roller, I wont be able to separate the paper and the roller. Maybe it will damage . So better to leave it alone to have some rest. Maybe I will try to open it next year hehe. I got other job to do. Wait for my Puppy Linux project : )
