IPS

leave a comment »


IPS, first track from the album Terbaik Terbaik by Dewa 19. Solo guitar from the guitarist, Andra Ramadhan, also the song composer. I didn’t get what IPS stands for and i’m quite sure that most of you, must’ve ever thought that it stands for Ilmu Pengetahuan Sosial, hehehe…. Until yesterday my friend told me that it stands for¬†Ismulia Permata Sari, the name of Andra’s wife. ūüėÄ

Anyway, i found the cover version of the song from youtube, played clearly and nicely by TheRenhart. check this out…

Prevent Google to Redirect to Local Country-Specific Searching

with 2 comments


I’m currently working for a Korean Company. Each time i go to Google, i wil be redirected to Google Korea page. It’s little bit annoying not only i couldn’t read korea very well but also the search engine will prefer to show the ¬†results from local Korean site. I’d like to go to Google.com¬†page rather than being redirected to ¬†country-location-specific google page.

Changing my default language to English didn’t help. Until i found¬†this post¬†in Google Forum discussion. The only thing you need to do is only visiting the ¬†Google no country redirect (NCR) url (http://www.google.com/ncr).¬†That will install a cookie that prevents country specific search results. ¬†If we want to reset our ¬†browser to enable country redirect feature, only thing we need to do is just delete our ¬†google NCR cookies.

According to post i’ve mentioned before, some people couldn’t use the NCR cookie. The way that also works for them is by manually set search engine preferences with :¬†http://www.google.com/search?q=%s¬†url. But for me, the NCR just works fine and smoothly.

I hope it will helps you if you meet the same problem. ūüôā
