So, after pondering over a switch to wordpress, I have decided(firmly) to stick with blogger.
- One of the major attractions of wordpress.com was the new Regulus template. To counter this, I decided to look for a nice theme for my blogger site. But, no single readily avalible theme satisfied me.
- But, that blogger “rounders” theme was real boring.. i simply had to get a new theme!
- So, here is a modified version of Andreas02 (taken from oswd) The original one was designed for a personal/company website. I had to redo the css to make it work for blogger. I have been careful not to goof while re-writing the css. But, one problem that persists is that all images included in my posts insist on being left-aligned. But, this problem must wait… I have no patience to correct it now!
Comments/Cribs on the new theme are welcome!!
Now, if any google person is reading this …
- I badly want categories. This is too old a concept to be missing in the market-leader’s scheme of things.
People would have gone through this..
Do I ditch blogger for wordpress?? I dont mean a dedicated hosting… I would happily switch to wordpress if I had a full-fledged hosting plan. It is a shift from http://neosagredo.blogspot.com to https://aswin.wordpress.com that I am contemplating. A much cleaner interface for blogging, great looks (of this particular template), categories,trackbacks etc are some of the advantages with wordpress. But, the flip side is that you get very little freedom to tamper with your template! It would be great if they could just allow me to change the css file, a little bit. Also, The default “blog stats” are extremely primitive and do not go beyond pageloads and referrals. Inspite of this, I have moved my content here. I am just playing around with the interface. I will continue to post stuff at my blogger site(and all comments go there). If I do change, it would be my second shift in less that 4 months! (the first time)
The Physics year is now a thing of the past. And quantum diaries , a project where numerous physicists from around the world blog about their daily lives and physics, has also reached its target lifetime of one year. A review of the past one year’s experience (by the Editor,QD) can be found in the latest Symmetry Magazine. ‘Symmetry’ is a wonderful magazine brought out by Fermilab. I have never seen this in the print form , but it looks pretty similiar to the Cern Courier.
Getting back to Quantum Diaries.. there were a few blogs which were updated regularly and has some nice posts. But, quite a few bloggers were pretty irregular! For ex, John Ellis had a blog at QD and his last post was in July’05! Prof.Ellis is a very well-known physicist and I am sure that his blog would have raked up a large amount of traffic. Anyway, some of the bloggers there hope to continue their blogging.
The human tragedy caused by the Kashmir Earthquake is enormous. Given the difficult terrain and the
impending winter, the homeless have a torrid time ahead. Each of us can contribute to making their struggle to get back to normal life, a little easier. If you want to make a monetary contribution to the thousands affected in Pakistan/Muzzaffarabad, go here. You could also contribute to the Prime Minister’s Relief Fund. For a more elaborate list of agencies collecting money for helping the victims, visit the Wikipedia Page for the Quake or the Desipundit page.
