The Meaning of Sindur from Puncak Jaya Papua

Living and travelling around Papua make me know that each tribe and region have it's own culture and language. If you want to explore deep area in centre Papua, like Jayawijaya (Wamena), Tolikara, Puncak Jaya, and Pegunungan Bintang, you should using airplane to reach them.

The isolation of area make each tribe and person in each region have it's own
language. For the example, Puncak jaya people change letter 't' (Tango) with 's' (Sierra) and vice versa. So, if you want to tell 'tidur' (sleep), you should say 'sidur' or easilly you can say 'sindur'. Term 'saya' (me) is said 'taya'.

Taya tudah ngancuk, mau sindur dulu...

Repair MySQL Database Crash

I just noticed in the last post that some part my database is crashed. Some table of this blog need to be repaired. I working on this problem, and found that its not a too serious crash (for me), because I still can repair it using MySQL repair function.

FYI, when a database crash and you can repair it, you possibly can lost data or some data can be truncated. So, if you have important database, don't forget to do regular backup.
