A new look

It’s been long since I posted; and very very long since I upgraded my blog. After borrowing some enthu from Sandy, who recently bought some web-space and domain name, I finally decided to upgrade my blog – for whatever that means.

It was not easy. Firstly, my earlier Wordpess was installed in 2004. For god’s sake!! I ran it on a version so old, that it took me four hours of careful reading on various forums, taking multiple backups in various formats, and a lot of coffee to get it working on 3.0.1.

Then, the theme. Impossible to choose – at least without the help of womanly whims. Somehow chose this new theme, little bit of Gimp work, some PHP tweaking and the thing was up.

Then I realized, that I now live in 2010. The world has changed a lot since 2004. There was no social bookmarking then, there was no twitter and no Facebook… Oh My God!! NO FACEBOOK!! So I got the right plugins to help people socialize from here.

All in all it took me a day with some break…. and here we are. Welcome back 🙂

BTW, any suggestions?

    Cool che, never noticed your earlier theme and wouldn’t have noticed a change if you didn’t dedicate a full post to it 😀

  3. This is now something wonderful. The only thing missing is a favicon. You need to put your own pic over there 😛

    @Jeet RSS 😐

    @Ritz I’ll get a favicon 🙂

  5. @Ritz … got the favicon… but it’s too narcissist 😛 suggest me something else!!

    • Yeah, I think there is a need of some really cool Indian suggestion over here. BTW, even the smiley is looking better than the favicon you bragged about 😛

      Think Indian.. Think a round globe with India Map.. or a gandhian skull .. or even ashok chakra .. or even a Z symbol with a religious flavor 😛

    You missed putting the tagline in the header. “I can only tell you what it is not”. 🙂
