BlueWhirl – new wordpress theme for TechTracer

Posted on April 22nd, 2007 in News, Wordpress | 4 Comments »

I designed this theme yesterday and have named it BlueWhirl since every thing in this theme has a shade of blue. Why blue? Because it’s one of my favorite colors. The design has the layout of the theme Andreas which is a fluid 4 column widget ready theme. I had loved the Garland theme which was ported to the free wordpress blog by the Drupal Team. I had used it for a long time in my old blog and had loved it. But surprisingly it hasn’t been made available as a free download. BlueWhirl has the shades of Garland theme especially if you notice the background and the sidebars.

BlueWhirl - new wordpress theme for TechTracer

This theme is not a fancy theme nor purposefully made to look attractive. It is entirely made using CSS and does not utilize images for the sake of loading the site faster. I also have made the theme SEO and adsense friendly. I am not sure if BlueWhirl would be realeased as a free theme in the near future. But for the time being I am requesting readers to please report any bugs if found. It will be helpful to make sure that it works properly before a stable release. All kinds of suggestions are gladly appreciated. :)

TechTracer was not active as it should have been after its launch since I wanted to optimize it in all ways possible and at the same time make it look attractive enough to make you come to it once again. I had been searching for the right templates, the right cosmetics and the right theme mainly for a long time.

SCDJWS – mission accomplished

Posted on January 29th, 2007 in News, SCDJWS | 16 Comments »

Finally after a long wait, the moment to cherish has arrived and that too with a very dramatic touch. Yup, I got SCDJWS certified today. It was a long learning curve, but turned out to be very fruitful indeed. The exam started early without much delay in the NIIT Prometric center, Bandra where I had been given the time of 11:30 am. It started at about at 12:00 am with my heart pounding out too loud to be heard by people around me. It was in my mind that today would either be the best day in my life or the worst. All thanks to my stars, after a period of 2 hours, 30 minutes it turned out to be the former one.
