Introducing Halalan Initiative

Roughly speaking, Halalan Initiative is a group of people aiming for educated elections by developing software and holding online campaigns that can help people further evaluate candidates/politicians before, during, and after elections. The actual definition is not yet finished but the idea revolves around that.

There are two ongoing projects as of now. First is PolCat which stands for (The) Politician Catalog. The goal is to provide a platform to record information about politicians. The second is Halalan which is a long-standing project of UnPLUG.

Visit Halalan Initiative and join the forums.

Life Update

I almost forgot to post a life update this year. But who cares anyway? Haha.

  • I’m now working at the College of Engineering doing secret things.
  • Only thesis stands between me and an MS degree now. But it’s hard and I already hit MRR.
  • There is no Halalan 2.0.0 still. But there is Halalan Summer Camp 2013.
  • Still getting fatter I think.
  • I want to go to Singapore this year. Also, Malaysiya (because Legoland).
  • I want to read and watch again.
  • I love Aica. Always and forever.

My life is getting just a little bit exciting.

Django Settings When Using Gmail As Mail Server

Remember my post entitled “CodeIgniter Email Preferences When Using Gmail As Mail Server“? Here is the Django version.

EMAIL_HOST = 'smtp.gmail.com'
EMAIL_HOST_PASSWORD = 'password'
EMAIL_HOST_USER = 'username@gmail.com'
EMAIL_PORT = '587'
EMAIL_SUBJECT_PREFIX = '' # The default is [Django] so you may want to replace it.
EMAIL_USE_TLS = True

Again, make sure to replace username with your real username and password with your real password.
