I haven’t written a post in the past 10 days and many of my friends including some readers started pinging me to check on my status 🙂
I am very much alive, only that I was caught up with a little work and also decided to take some time off 😀
FeedDemon, the RSS reader that I use, was filled up with so many new posts !! I was forced to use the “Mark Folder Read” option for most of RSS folders. However I did a quick check on India Technology Bloggers feed and got myself updated with the latest happenings in the tech world. (Thanks to QOT for staring this network, its really useful)
Orkut seems to have got a face-lift; It looks only like a CSS update (with rounded corners/use of “blue” color/new icons). Not sure, if Orkut team read one of my earlier post, but they do seem to have finally started an official blog on June 25.
Other than this:
- Apurv seems to be having a fun filled time in Austin. His first tryst with Square dancing even won him a Philips DVD player 🙂
- Vasu takes some time off to explain the significance of his name. His blog archives are just amazing. Most of his posts are worth reading over and over again 🙂
- Chris does throw up an interesting proposal on Twitter Groups
- Kyle reminds to update the Text Link Ads Referral Links.
- Shankar, as usual is glued to his PC after school and has a lot of interesting posts.
- Nirmal suggests 7 Plugins to improve the comment section of your WordPress powered weblog. I really need to integrate some of those plug-ins to improve the “commenting” experience on this site.
- Mayank talks about the new Bloglines Beta RSS reader.
- Shivaranjan talks of the built-in Screen capturing utility of Vista. I am still on Windows XP and I am really keen to know as to how many of you have upgraded to vista and how many of you would recommend an upgrade.
- Vijay points to an interesting Web Page Technology profiler – Builtwith
- If you are a game freak, do checkout the Microsoft Sidewinder mouse suggested by Madhur. I am not into gaming much these days and I’m quite happy with my Logitech V500 mouse 🙂
- I was about to check on the 3 WordPress Plug-ins that won the WordPress Plug-in Competition when Aprit warned me of the security flaws in each of these plug-ins.
