Important Notes When Setting Up Google Authenticator For 2-Step Verification

Google had launched a new method for verification called Google 2-Steps Verification. This method  can upgrade your Google account security by providing two steps of verification. Every devices that you use for log in to Google need extra secure password. So, before you can insert your regular password to log in, you need extra password that securely generated by Google. The extra password can be obtained by verified mobile phone through SMS or Voice Call. Beside that you can use Google Authenticator App to generate secure codes. When you had successfully logged on one device, the device can be added into verified devices list so you don't need to use extra password for next use. To set up your account to use this method, you can go to https://www.google.com/settings/security and choose 2-Step Verification Setting.

Google Authenticator App can be installed on Android, iPhone, or Blackberry. By using this app you can generate extra secure password for verification independently using your smartphone or tablet. Google Authenticator App needs to read QR code or secure key (if your phone cannot read the QR code) which is provided by Google when you set up your Google Authenticator App for the first time. The app generates new codes every 30 seconds.
Scan this QR Code using your Google Authenticator App

If you want to install Google Authenticator App in multiple devices you must use same QR code for each Google Authenticator App on every devices. Beside that, you must ensure that every devices have same clock time. If you forget to use the QR code for other devices, you can reset your 2-Step Verification setting and regenerate QR code. To do that, you can go to 2-Step Verification setting page then choose "Move to different phone". At this time, you must not forget to prepare all your smartphone or tablet devices which will be used and have had Google Authenticator App installed on them to be set up.

If you have old Android devices (Android 2.3 Gingerbread, etc) or non Google applications (Outlook, Calendar, etc) which need your Google account to log in but still don't have two steps verification method (can not read extra secure password) you can set up App-specific Password on Google account setting. Last, don't forget to generate back up codes in case you lost your smartphone or tablet.

Rangkaian Sensor Infrared dengan Photo Dioda

Keunggulan photodioda dibandingkan LDR adalah photodioda lebih tidak rentan terhadap noise karena hanya menerima sinar infrared, sedangkan LDR menerima seluruh cahaya yang ada termasuk infrared. Rangkaian yang akan kita gunakan adalah seperti gambar di bawah ini. Pada saat intensitas Infrared yang diterima Photodiode besar maka tahanan Photodiode menjadi kecil, sedangkan jika intensitas Infrared yang diterima Photodiode kecil maka tahanan yang dimiliki photodiode besar. Jika  tahanan photodiode kecil  maka tegangan  V- akan kecil . Misal tahanan photodiode mengecil menjadi 10kOhm. Maka dengan teorema pembagi tegangan: V- = Rrx/(Rrx + R2) x Vcc V- = 10 / (10+10) x Vcc V- = (1/2) x 5 Volt V- = 2.5 Volt Sedangkan jika  tahanan photodiode besar  maka tegangan  V- akan besar  (mendekati nilai Vcc). Misal tahanan photodiode menjadi 150kOhm. Maka dengan teorema pembagi tegangan: V- = Rrx/(Rrx + R2) x Vcc V- = 150 / (150+10) x Vcc V- = (150/160) x 5

Raspberry Pi Bluetooth Connection

Raspberry Pi 3 provides built-in bluetooh module. Latest Raspbian has been bundled with tools for enabling bluetooth connection. Bluetooth icon will be showed up on top right corner of the desktop. It's a tool to discover available bluetooth devices and connect Pi with bluetooth devices. It is easy to connect any bluetooth-enabled electronic device with Pi. But, sometimes Pi will fail to make a connection especially for bluetooth device which has no standarized services. From terminal, we can use bluetoothctl tool to scan and connect with a bluetooth device. You should make sure that BlueZ protocol stack has been installed by running $ apt-get install bluez Run bluetoothctl to enter the tool command window Turn the power on by running power on (Optional) You can set AutoEnable=true in /etc/bluetooth/main.conf if you want to make the bluetooth auto power-on after reboot. Run devices to see which devices have been paired Run scan on if your desired device has not pair

Kerusakan pada Motherboard

1. Sering terjadi hang memory tidak cocok --- ganti memory ada virus di harddisk --- scan harddisk over clock --- seting kembali clock prosesor ada bad sector di harddisk --- partisi harddisk dengan benar 2. Pembacaan data menjadi lambat memori tidak cukup --- tambah memori harddisk penuh atau ada virus --- kurangi isi harddisk, scan harddisk, atau ganti hardisk 3. CMOS failure baterai habis --- ganti baterai CMOS seting BIOS berubah --- seting kembali BIOS 4. Tidak bisa booting cache memory rusak --- disable eksternal cache memory di BIOS memori tidak cocok --- ganti memori boot sector pada harddisk rusak --- masukkan operating system baru ada bad sector pada trek awal harddisk --- partisi harddisk 5. Suara bip panjang berkali-kali memori rusak --- periksa kedudukan memori memori tidak cocok --- ganti memori memori tidak masuk slot dengan sempurna --- periksa kembali kedudukan memori 6. Suara bip bagus tetapi tidak ada tampilan / bip dua kali VGA card

How To Use Git in Netbeans

Git is a popular version control application nowadays. Recently I have created a note about its differences with SVN and how to use it in Eclipse . There are many Git client tools. But I just want to show how to use Netbeans built in Git tools. It makes development process easier because it has been integrated with the IDE. Create Remote Git Repository We need remote Git repository so everyone can store or receive any revision or updated files through the networks. We can setup our own Git server or use public Git server like Github . In this note, I use Github. 1. Create an account in Github and create an empty Git repository Create an empty public repository in Github 2. Get the remote repository link Your Github Repository URL Create a New Project in Netbeans and Create Local Git Repository After we have a remote Git repository, we can create a project which will be stored to remote repository. We also need to create local repository before we can push

Run Python Scripts Using PHP in a Linux Environment

How to run python or other scripts using PHP or other popular web programming languages in a Linux environment? Problem We want to access PHP program through a web server application (Apache/Nginx). The PHP program need to run other scripts stored in the same machine. Sample Problem PHP program is located in /var/www/html/index.php Python program is located in /var/www/html/capture.py Python program will access Pi Camera, capture an image, and store it in /var/www/html/assets/photo.jpg Solution index.php should access and run capture.py script. The script is as follows: $output = shell_exec("python /var/www/html/capture.py"); Execution of external program using shell_exec() or exec() will block the program. The next line of PHP codes will be run after external program returns an output. So, we shouldn't run excessive amount of external program. Clients will wait too long on their browser. If our application actually need many external pr
