Welcome to - my personal website. It had been a long time for me to develop a personal website; I actually had written my first web project in 1995, but it was very awful therefore I dumped that project :) But now, I cannot resist due to the globalization and to fulfill my dream to publish my workings publicly. Hopefully you could find something useful and let me know your comments and suggestions.

Yours faithfully,

Although I have a limited web programming knowledge, however I develop several websites as follows:

  • Cakra Solusi Pratama: A technology vendor specializes in custom software development and gadgets for your mobile connectivity
  • Delphindo: The biggest Delphi/Kylix Community in Indonesia and gets official supports from Borland Singapore

    While working on Marco Cantù's Essential Pascal translation project, I was inspired to put my yet-to-publish book on Advanced Clipper Programming subject to web-format, allowing Clipper community to read this book thoroughly and give me your valuable inputs. The book is titled "Lebih Lanjut dengan Clipper" (or "Further with Clipper"), however this book is published in Indonesian language first, then I will find spare time to translate it into English; therefore you hardly can find the book's content in English version.

    April 1, 2002
    No, it's not April Fool :-) But I got the permission from Marco Cantù to translate his excellent Essential Pascal to Indonesian language. Well this translation project is still going on, but since it is a voluntary work, I cannot give a specific date as the deadline. Your inputs are most welcome. Thanks to Marco for his kindness.

    New Agreement on VO and Clipper
    On April 22, 2002, GrafXSoft have reached a Development, Licensing, and Marketing Agreement with Computer Associates (CA) for two of their software development languages - CA-Clipper and CA-Visual Objects. The CA logo will remain on the package, but the design, development, testing, and marketing of both products are now controlled by GrafXSoft. Despite changes in CA's development master plan, CA recognizes that CA-Visual Objects is an important and widely used Windows development tool and is acting to continue active development through this agreement.
