I switched to the latest theme added, Fadtastic, kinda liked it. And I was getting bored of K2-Lite anyways ..

I wish there were more options to customize the theme though, I am not really all that fond of the links being display at the bottom of the page in those huge fonts .. 😦

Oh well, can’t really complain that much I guess ..

And Hi Mardi, thanks for the comment .. Hows Japan? 🙂

Got to run now, post later about some of the work I have been doing the past couple of weeks.


I got a domain and hosting in December, but never got around to actually put the site live with anything meaningful .. I have been wanting to finish off everything with the theme and some other customizations that I wanted to do before actually starting to use it ..

But I figured that I didn't want to wait forever for that to happen .. 😀 .. yeah, sometimes I can go wayward with my stuff ..

So here's what I did, I upgraded to latest version of WordPress, and put everything live, the theme is working fine, its just "not complete" according to what I have in mind for it, but oh well, no biggie ..

So now I have two cool (this obviously remains to be seen 😦 ) blogs, but I am going to refrain talking about WordPress on the other blog as much as possible, and leave other stuff to it, while I use this one for all WordPress related stuff .. thats the plan anyway, don't hold your breathe on it .. 😀

Take a look, and if someone actually does, I would appreciate any feedback .. you can find it here NameError .. 🙂

I was shocked when I tried accessing the blog earlier today, to find a 404 display. A quick login took me from "hhm weird" to "wth happened?". I was extremely surprised to see no posts, no categories, no nothing .. and I had no idea what had caused it.

It's at times like this that personally hosted/managed applications stand out from using externally managed applications. If the same had happened to a blog running WP on some hosted server, I could poke around or tried to find out what happened .. but not possible with this blog on

After the initial shock mode, I decided to poke around, the support forums are always a great place to start checking out the general scene. Lo and Behold .. the first two posts confirmed that every single blog was not working, and everyone was screaming as loudly as their voice boxes (by this I really mean their keyboards and fingers) could manage.

So well now there was nothing that could be done, but to wait until folks around the world in their time zones woke up and started having a go at what was happening. And as expected, an hour or so later, the blog didn't display at all, but an explanatory message showed, excellent.

Now its all back and running again as usual, and looks like I lost nothing which is simply superb. Not that I would have lost an extreme amount of information or for that matter very important posts, I have very few posts still on the blog, but losing this would have ached though ..

Now I am happy, and beaming again that I lost nothing, I hope all other users are in the same emotional state .. for anyone else who lost some data, bad luck sh*t happens, I just hope that you didn't lose too much ..

OK .. this is very weird I just wrote an entire post, and pressed Save, and then bham nothing got saved so, I have to rewrite the post now .. 😦 .. very weird that something like this happened ..

I just switched themes, I really loved “Neat”, but couldn’t resist the new theme that has been added, “Contempt”. Its almost too perfect for words. Its sleek, elegant, professional, and simple .. only complaints obviously is that I have to stick with the color it comes with.

It would be really kick-ass if users were able to edit the stylesheet for their blog, it would allow so much more flexibility in terms of how you want the blog to look like .. lets hope one of the admins reads this post .. 🙂

It has been quiet on WP development side of my life, have some other pressing issues that need attention asap. But I did help out Ju1ie yesterday. There was some trouble with user regsitration and password emails not being sent out. But it turned out it wasn’t WP’s fault, but some server issue or misconfiguration, but we got that resolved now. Which got me featured as a “Life Saver” in a post ‘dedicated’ to me .. alright alright I won’t gloat to much over it .. and YES I am a modest person .. 😀
