X Japan

Besides classical music, I also like heavy metal music. X Japan is one of the most famous heavy metal bands from Japan. I like most of its music. Its tone is strong and brings me a certain feeling.


One of their songs that makes me fell in love with X Japan was Kurenai.


X Japan was formed in 1982. In the beginning, I don't really care about its member. Recently, when I watched 2000s concert videos, I just realized that one of its members, the guitarist, who used to appear with his blooming red hair was missing. Now I know that the guitarist, Hide, 33 years old guy, was dead in 1998 because of suicide, based on police evidence.


X Japan had been disbanded in 1997 and Hide had started a solo career since then. While he still had a certain project with another music group in 1998, he was found dead in his house. His death was followed by the copycat suicides of three of his fans.

In 2007, X Japan was reinvented and launched a new album. In the 2008 concert, there was something touching. Hide was recalled by showing his image on a screen and as a holographic projection on the stage. Based on the words of netizens, X Japan had used Hide guitar recorded sound for three years at live concerts until Hide's brother unnecessarily sued it. X Japan members always love Hide. This is a video of a 2008 concert with a holographic projection of Hide.


When they were performing Kurenai, the vocalist still shouted Hide's name when it was supposed to be Hide turn for solo guitar lead.


It's still the same with the 1993 concert performing Art of Life when Hide and Taiji, the former bassist who died in 2011, were still alive.


Do you like X Japan?

Setting Up Next.js Project With ESLint, Typescript, and AirBnB Configuration

If we initiate a Next.js project using the  create-next-app tool, our project will be included with ESLint configuration that we can apply using yarn run lint . By default, the tool installs eslint-config-next and extends next/core-web-vitals in the ESLint configuration. The Next.js configuration has been integrated with linting rules for React and several other libraries and tools. yarn create next-app --typescript For additional configuration such as AirBnB, it is also possible. First, we need to install the peer dependencies of eslint-config-airbnb . We also add support for Typescript using eslint-config-airbnb-typescript . yarn add --dev eslint-config-airbnb eslint-plugin-import eslint-plugin-jsx-a11y eslint-plugin-react eslint-plugin-react-hooks yarn add --dev eslint-config-airbnb-typescript @typescript-eslint/eslint-plugin @typescript-eslint/parser After that, we can update the .eslintrc.json file for the new configuration. { "extends": [ "airb

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

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 the development process easier because it has been integrated with the IDE. Create Remote Git Repository We need a remote Git repository so everyone can store or receive any revision or updated files through the networks. We can set up our own Git server or use a 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 stored in the remote repository. We also need to create a local repository before we can push

Raspberry Pi Bluetooth Connection

Raspberry Pi 3 provides a built-in Bluetooth module. The latest Raspbian has been bundled with tools for enabling Bluetooth connection. The Bluetooth icon will be shown up on the 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 connect, especially for Bluetooth device that has no standardized services. From a terminal, we can use the  bluetoothctl tool to scan and connect with a Bluetooth device. You should make sure that the 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 d

Configuring Swap Memory on Ubuntu Using Ansible

If we maintain a Linux machine with a low memory capacity while we are required to run an application with high memory consumption, enabling swap memory is an option. Ansible can be utilized as a helper tool to automate the creation of swap memory. A swap file can be allocated in the available storage of the machine. The swap file then can be assigned as a swap memory. Firstly, we should prepare the inventory file. The following snippet is an example, you must provide your own configuration. [server] 192.168.1.2 [server:vars] ansible_user=root ansible_ssh_private_key_file=~/.ssh/id_rsa Secondly, we need to prepare the task file that contains not only the tasks but also some variables and connection information. For instance, we set /swapfile  as the name of our swap file. We also set the swap memory size to 2GB and the swappiness level to 60. - hosts: server become: true vars: swap_vars: size: 2G swappiness: 60 For simplicity, we only check the exi
