Terasa agak sayu juga bila kedengaran Jaring akan tutup kedai selamanya. Secara rasminya ia akan ditutup pada 22hb August 2015.
Selamat tinggal JARING
November sembilan puluh dua kau bermula
Setelah sedekad belajar dan mencuba
Mempelopori Internet untuk negara
Demi masa depan bersaing di dunia
Tanggal satu Januari empat belas lalu
Kau dijual kepada seorang penipu
Mungkin kerenah menteri wang tu
Apa tujuan tak siapa yang tahu
Jutaan wangmu disedut keluar
Bertambahlah hutang tak terbayar
Ramai pemiutang hilang sabar
Masuk mahkamah tutup diisytihar
Tahun lima belas, dua puluh satu Ogos
Nafas akhirmu terpaksa dihembus
Dua puluh tiga tahun bertungkus lumus
Memberi khidmat tanpa terputus
Walau cita murnimu belum kecapaian
Jasa dan baktimu tetap dikenang
Moga bekas wargamu dapat pembelaan
Demi meneruskan mata pencarian
Pemergianmu diiringi dengan sedu
Dalam hati banyak yang terbuku
Namun tiada siapa nak ambil tahu
Semua sibuk kemelut nombor satu.
Bapa Internet Malaysia, peneroka dunia internet Malaysia.
How did JARING COMMUNICATIONS become so significant to me?
My username was firstname.lastname@example.org
Well, at the time, I was 11 years old. I was schooling in SMK Seri Serdang. They were only five people in the school who had internet connections. Ahmad Khalil, Zeid, Syazwan, Hazwan and me. The group was called (KSHEVANZ)
Technology Park Malaysia( TPM) was like a Silicon Valley in Malaysia to me. I went there just to see and marvel at the high tech companies that existed that time. JARING, IRIS, NOVA NORDISK, and MSC.
Loved it so much.
I was wondering whether I will be able to work as a computer prorammer at the time. No one know in the school that, a job as a computer programmer had existed.
I had learn a lot with Jaring, VB scripts, ASP, .net , and basically high-level programming. I was so keen to start my own internet startup. Agronaz Enterprise had existed because JARING had provided a very super cheap internet service.
This was like a hobby to me.
And this was in the year, 2001.
I had a lot of projects with JARING providing the internet service (ISP).
A lot of my experiments with Common Gate Interface (CGI), ASP .. such as brinkster.com, all this new webhostings that offer your APACHE and Windows server so that you can try, if you still remember. I was living in my own world in programming. If you were a programmer that time, everything was so fantastic because, everything was new.
This was in 2001 when we got that glimpse of enterpreneur spirit.
I had tried Checkout.com, some other payment gateway and I met few internet founders. TERATO.TECH
JARING had influenced me so much during my childhood teenage years.
