I have been thinking quite a bit about where I am heading and I have been trying to come up with some decisions, and I have kind of decided on a few things over the past couple of days …

I have realized that the current Master’s program that I am enrolled under does not seriously interest or suit me enough to justify my continuing it. Moreover it is becoming a burden in trying to study and make a living at the same time doing freelance work, simply because of time constraints and the pay involved with most freelance odd jobs ..

Therefore I am on a full fledged job hunt right now. I really love programming, and I figured that I should do what interests me rather than trying to worry about solving matrix problems using MatLab. No offense to matrix algebra or MatLab, its just that it’s not my thing I guess!!

So if you read this post and know of any jobs available, I would be really grateful if you could point it out to me. I have listed below what I deem to be my skill-set and would love it if you could let me know of any jobs that you know about based on my skill-set.

  • PHP/MySQL : Advanced
  • Python [wxPython & Tk] : Advanced
  • Ruby & Ruby on Rails : Beginner – Intermediate
  • Perl : Beginner
  • Java : Beginner
  • XHTML : Advanced
  • CSS : Advanced
  • AJAX/Javascript : Intermediate – Advanced

Apart from this I have extensive experience with some of the Open Source applications and have worked with them a lot:

  • WordPress : Advanced
  • OsCommerce/ZenCart : Beginner – Intermediate
  • phpBB : Beginner – Intermediate
  • Gallery : Beginner – Intermediate

If you do know of some available positions, please feel free to leave a comment with your email address and I will get back to you ASAP!!

I have no constraints on where the job is located, as long as I can get some assistance with Work Permits/Visas, but this is secondary right now.

I greatly appreciate your reading through this post, and would appreciate it even more if you could help me out a bit 🙂


It’s been a long time since I posted .. more than two months to be accurate considering that my last post is dated Feb. 6 ..

Oh well, I had to go back home to attend to some matters and make up my mind on a couple of other things. I had to make some important decisions about my future, and fortunately that did go quite ok ..

I have finally decided that its no longer any use to try study full time and at the same time work as a freelancer to support myself, because it just seems that I end up missing out on one of them invariably.

So I have taken the plunge and decided that studying is going to have to be stopped for sometime at least, I am not really the kind to make myself promise that I will study again later and what not .. so if it happens, we will see ..

So now I am frantically job hunting, pretty much everywhere too .. well technically mainly the US, Canada and the UK .. why, because English is the primary language. I am sort of getting tired of going place where English is not the official language and the need to learn a new language altogether just to get a decent part-time job if the need arose ..

So if anyone see’s this post, and knows of any job vacancies for PHP or Python programmers especially in the US or UK, please do drop me a line, I would greatly appreciate it.

Haven’t had much of work with WordPress since my last post, well to be honest haven’t really been able to work that much with all the travelling .. but getting back to my normal lifestyle, so lets see how it goes .. more later ..

Woohoo .. its finally out .. the wait is over .. WP 2.0 🙂

Download counter is already fast approaching the 1K mark .. it should pick up more pace later, since half of the world is already in deep slumber ..

WordPress has a new look as well .. they are still cranking out some bugs and errors, but the new design looks sweet ..

Can’t wait to get my hands working on 2.0 .. but looks like its going to have to wait for an hour or so, since I am stuck working on some stuff right now .. 😦

I never had time until now to really concentrate on WP as much as I would have liked to ..

But things have definitely changed over the past week or so, and today I was looking around the WP Support forums, and it really amazed me that so much activity takes place .. I myself have posted at least 10 or so times in the past hour or two ..

I guess I found a new tab that needs to be open 24/7 on my FF 🙂

It definitely feels nice to help out as much as I possibly can when people are having issues with their blogs ..

Alright, since anyone could create a blog now without invites, and unfortunately I couldn’t get an invite earlier, I decided I was going to get one.

The idea is to make this blog my WordPress blog, meaning all things wordpress, themes, plug-in hacks, or even hacks to the core to “extend”, “enhance” or “customize” wordpress .. well basically all my work related to wordpress .. 🙂

Right now waiting for the release of WP 2.0 .. yay .. more later
