Kalau Cuma Tahu Saja,Percuma

Pagi ini tergelitik dengan salah satu tweet @safirsenduk yang intinya percuma saja kalau cuman tahu dan belajar ilmu investasi doang tapi gak melakukannya.

Melihat kembali ke tahun 2010,saya mulai tertarik dengan ilmu investasi sejak awal penempatan @Plaza Mandiri pada akhir Maret 2010. Diawali dengan memantau harga reksadana melalui email dan obrolan dengan senior kantor yang banyak bermain saham,mulailah muncul keinginan untuk berinvestasi.

Kegiatan pantau-memantau NAB pun tiap pagi dilakukan. Install aplikasi Bloomberg di HP,ceritanya biar agak nyambung dikit kalau temen2 pada ngobrolin saham. Baca-baca blog dan kunjungi situs-situs pergerakan harga macam http://infovesta.com . Namun demikian, keinginan untuk berinvestasi pun hanya jadi keinginan belaka hingga akhir tahun. Sampai ada “sesuatu” yang menjadi trigger untuk investasi datang😀

Nah,quote @safirsenduk,mulai sekarang mari jadikan tahun 2011 sebagai tahun investasi. Yosh!

Shifting Comparison

Quoted from TED-talks by Dan Gilbert in 2005,

“You want to buy a car stereo . The dealer near your house sells it for $200, but if you drive across town, you can get it for $100. Would you drive for 50% off?”

Needless to say, most people will answer “Yes”. But what about the analogy below?

“You want to buy a car with a stereo. The dealer near your house sells it for $31000, but if you drive across town, you can get it for $30900. Would you drive to get .003 % off?”

Most people will answer “No” despite the fact that they save the same $100 in both cases.

The problem is, as Dan Gilbert said, the money we save can’t talk where it is saved from. Whether it is from buying a car stereo, or from buying daily goods. But why the answer is different for those two questions.  Do percentage really make it different? Or is it the value?

Small Update

There is not many things that I can do until the day of my departure to Indonesia exactly two weeks from now. While there are so many matsuri or festivals around Tokyo during summer time, I don’t have much interest anymore compared with during my first two weeks in Japan. I have only two goals in summer. One is watching fireworks festival, which is already accomplished last week. The other one is climbing Mount Fuji, which apparently seems to be impossible for me, since unfortunately, I have one exam and report this week. Maybe I can just go climb Mount Fuji in the end of the week. But, let’s just see later. Because I still have to prepare for my sotsuron presentation on August 8th.

jdk 1.6.0 error on freebsd

I got the following error everytime I run my Java code using JDK 1.6.0 on FreeBSD 7.0 Stable.

java.io.IOException: Invalid argument
at java.net.PlainDatagramSocketImpl.send(Native Method)
at java.net.DatagramSocket.send(DatagramSocket.java:612)

I’ve been wondering what’s wrong since then. Thanks to this site, now I found the solution. Somehow, seems like Java always interpret the send method to use IPv6 related parameter, which of course will fail in case we use IPv4 parameter. We have to add parameter -Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true so that our code run smoothly.

Ijyou desu..
