    3 Septembet 2008 Mail server still not fixed by the hosting provider and so new users cannot register for quizzes and also cannot retrieve their passwords if they have already registered. You can drop a mail for the time being and I shall add you to the users list if you want to access the quiz for the time being.
    31 August 2008 Discovered that mail server is down and that led to guestbook crashing down - things are fixed now Stay tuned...
    9 August 2008 A heck of a long break - lot of things happening though; we should have something bigger coming up soon... Stay tuned...

    • We've got a quiz on IMS database up and running
    • I just discovered how a lot of times we don't actually worry about how things work in our day to day programming; you just forget about all that happens behing the scenes - learning the theory you begin to appreciate the practical aspects better.
    • Top scorer section for the quizzes is now available - just hover over the completed quizzes to view the top scorers.
    • KR archive updated
    • Wake up series updated
    4 May 2008
    • Haha - finally i've got it working; purely for the fun of learning I tried out some webservice, SOAP, JSON and AJAX - some hifi terms eh! You can find all of that working in the search box - try typing a letter and you'll get some suggestions to search for.

    • More changes - finally converted all my KR pages into ASPX so that the layout can be consistent. Unfortunately since I did it through a convertor tool which simply copy pasted the HTML into ASPX the look of the KRs might not be proper - will change them manually as and when required. If you find some page odd then do let me know.
    • New quiz is up and running - not the normal type - it's a story type quiz
    • C++ search facility is also available now. Phew - quite a lot of updates for a weekend!
    10 April 2008
    • More changes made and you'll see a new search bar on top which permits you to search through the KRs archive - drop a mail in case you have any issues. We will soon expand it to the C++ tutorials as well
    5 April 2008
    • Revamping the website to a consistent layout - Thanks to Sini for the banner (created from his snaps) and Jabez for making the new layout; all pages will soon be converted to the new layout and do stay tuned for a search facility that will come up in this website. Drop in your comments about this new layout. It's going to take some time to come out proper - cleaning up years of mess takes time :-) And now I appreciate the power of CSS!

    Last week was busy with uploading pictures and another long due work which is over for the time being

    8 December 2007

    The US travelogue is not over yet - readers were misled by the title perhaps...here is the next one...

    1 December 2007

    There was a big gap because of unforseen circumstances; so here we go with the much awaited travelogue continuation

    I've added the series of articles I write for a weekly column titled "Wake Up" online; do check it out and drop in your feedback.

    3 November 2007

    Gives pleasure to dig into Linux and assembly level programming after a long time! You understand internals better when you look at assembly code.

    28 October 2007

    Was busy with a lot of other things - so the delay in publishing the next edition of the travelogue; anyway we're back up and running again...do drop in your comments...

    15 March 2007 Ah; what a week - this new look was supposed to be up by 4th March itself but got delayed due to server issues - a virus in the server it seems and all my pages were kabooom...it's good I don't rely on the server backups.
    04 March 2007
    • New look to the website; experimenting with .NET

    25 Jan 2007 Verdict in; databases are gone! No restoration and so that's the end of my anxious wait! Moral of the story: Always back up data yourself.
    21 Jan 2007 I was in depression for the past few days since my database tables haven't yet been restored; ah; all my wonderful blogs lost and no backup (maybe some people are happy that it's gone!). The server guys say they'll try to get it back; let's hope they do; in the meantime I am looking at redesigning things over here.
    17 Jan 2007 I learnt my lesson "never ever forget to keep a backup of your work; no matter how small it may be"; the blog is down because the databases have gone empty because of server crashing down - let's see if I the hosting provider can recover the lost data; damn - I should've taken my own backup.

    2 Nov 2006

    I promised to update the webpage regularly by at least adding a comma to a page; done better than that today by writing this! Well, few things are in progress and they will be up by the weekend.

    And the good news is that the Google bot has crawled into my page and now it is listed in their search; hooray :-)
