This blog based on WordPress
Dreamhost had been giving me problems with email, most commonly with Webmail. Also the site faced a fair amount of downtime. Hence the switch. Let’s see how’s Hawkhost
I’ve decided to change my theme and put in a new theme. This is a clean, white theme with lot of free space and fluid layout. Graphics are minimal which should make the blog load faster.
Things will likely break and I’ll fix them as I come across them ;)
Update: The theme breaks the blog big time because it is designed for WordPress 2.3 while I am running a previous version and don’t plan to upgrade to 2.3.. Sigh. I’ll have to look for another theme now :(
Update 2: I managed to get a working theme which looks pretty decent. Though I did like another but that had the same problem as above. Sigh. This will have to do unless the other theme’s author feels benevolent and modifies his theme to make it backward compatible ;)
My blog feels neglected. And not without reason. I’ve barely posted recently. Though there has been a lot to write.
A combination of work, mental imbalance and guilt of not working on my applications has kept me away from typing out anything. Also, I want to make a lot more private posts to put my thoughts into words, but only for myself.
The blog itself is also neglected since the theme is fairly old and I’ve not changed it for a while. No idea if any of my plugins have been updated nor have I upgraded wordpress itself (though this is partly because I am thinking of moving over to Habari. If only Habari were a little more stable. But I digress)
But the guilt of my apps does not let me. Once the apps are done….
Bangalore Bloggers Meet is happening for the first time this month. It’s on the 21st of July at BrewHaHa near Jyothi Nivas College, Koramangala. I’ll be there. All those who read this, please do come. And comment here so that I know who to expect :)
Bangalore Bloggers Meet Event Details
Date : 21st July,2007
Near Jyoti Nivas College, Koramangala
Also happening later this month is the Bangalore BarCamp at IIM Bangalore. It’s on the 28th and 29th of July.
There are a lot of collectives and a lot of bloggers should be participating. I’ll hopefully be there too. Register and find more information at the BarCamp Wiki. BarCamp has a lot of Geek oriented Collectives but a few are non-geeky ones too (which is what I’m going to be attending mostly.. Though the Internet Collective and BangAJAX collective is tempting as well..) These will be my first ever bloggers meet and I hope this will be a good experience.
I will be switching my hosting from the current account to an account I am sharing with Chandrahasa. Things might be screwy and inaccessible for a while but should be back online within a day or max two.
Update: Things back to normal. The DNS propagation took more time than expected but everything should be working fine now..
I try to update the look of my blog fairly regularly (atleast more than my posting :D ). So with the new year, I decided that I needed a new theme, a new look for my blog AND a new name (the first change in my 4 years of blogging).
I’ve always thought that Red contrasts very well with both White and Black. So this time I was looking for a theme with atleast a splash of red. But what I found exceeded my expectations. Based on the wildly popular Hemingway theme, I now present Dawn. A stunning red and black theme by Milo and some beautiful and original artwork by Milo.
I have modified the theme to suit my needs and to show my Zooomr photos and also to fix a couple of bugs which Milo very patiently went through with me to correct. I am extremely grateful for her help.
And yes, I know that the new year was over a month ago but it was not long ago that I found the theme I really liked enough to switch. So here it is :)
I’ve been working on a redesign, a new theme for my blog for a couple of days now. It’s a nice dark and green theme based on the Foliage Mod by 5thirtyone designs. Though it’s mostly the same as the original, I’ve made a few changes and modifications, a few color changes etc.
The theme uses Ajax heavily with a shelf on top. While I’m enabling it, it is still a work in modification and changes.. So please bear with me and do tell me how it looks.
Any suggestions and critiques are always welcome :)
