XL Content Modifying Ads - Part 2

My tweets and the previous post have gone viral. Lots of reactions both positive and negative. Some retweeted immediately and some calling me a fool for writing about injecting content within an SSL connection. Amazing to see all the responses. There is a pattern to be seen with people who reacted negatively: they tend to don’t care about the ads. Here’s my said tweet: Jangan pake KlikBCA di jaringan @xl123 kecuali login credential lo mau lo share sama xl, kalo begitu monggo. [Read More]

XL Intrusive Content Modifying Banner in Mobile Websites

Last Friday, October 4th 2013 I was hanging out with some friends and while searching for a place to do so, I opened up Urbanesia on it mobile web http://m.urbanesia.com/. While I was searching, I noticed there’s a banner displayed on top of the page, it was definitely not Urbanesia’s and so I got curious. When digging into the mobile web source code, we didn’t activated any codes that’ll lead to any banner placements on top so this banner must surely be injected by a third party. [Read More]

Compiled and Minified Assets with Flask-Assets & Webassets

All these times coding in PHP, I have yet to experience an elegant way to compile and minify assets including but not limited to CoffeeScript, JavaScript and or CSS. Watchers for specific transcompiler were needed and it blocks me from coding straight up. Well Python and Flask specifically is giving me sweet dreams. Have a look first at Flask-Assets and then dive in to Webassets. FYI, Flask-Assets if you set it up as your dependency will include Webassets also. [Read More]

Compiling nginx 1.4.0 With SPDY on CentOS 6

Just a few days ago, the latest version of nginx at 1.4.0 was released to the public. The version bump adds a lot of new capabilities for your web stack. The most interesting for me was support for SPDY 2 protocol. Excerpts from Chromium SPDY’s page reads below: As part of the "Let's make the web faster" initiative, we are experimenting with alternative protocols to help reduce the latency of web pages.

Google Analytics JS - Here's a Non JS Fix

This will be the second time I once again dissect what is really happening with Urbanesia’s analytic results. The first time I dealt with it, we ended up breaking our own sacred oath not putting any inline Javascript with our HTML. Well now, we ended up not using any Javascript (in the future). These past few weeks our servers recorded an increase compared with previous months and somehow Google Analytics is not showing anything unusual. [Read More]

Mobile Augmented Reality, A Basic Tutorial - Part 1

On my last post, I mentioned the definition of Augmented Reality (AR). Now I’m adding the word Mobile to it. At the current time, platforms that I’ve tried to developed upon supporting AR are iPhone and Android. Well actually I coded once and used Titanium Developer to make the actual executable files for each platform. Titanium offers current web standards as a mean to create those mobile applications. I’m now using Titanium Developer 1. [Read More]

hostingMUREH.com

My latest adventure! I proclaim myself not just as a web developer but also a web hoster now :) Never really thought about it before until recently. I’m frustrated by the lack of options with just any web hosts. None really offers dynamics when it comes to what I need. A purely simple example is SSH access. Have a look out there and almost none offer SSH. If security is their reasoning then their just not fit to become a web host. [Read More]
