As with most web hosts, the apache, php & mysql versions are woefully stuck in older versions. While PHP 5.3 itself doesn't sound like too old, it's not enough for many latest php packages.
It is quite easy to use software without authorization in Windows PCs. May be it will become a thing of past with Windows is going the mobile OS ways. Verifying the user (or at least the device) is not a problem in mobile apps.
Most wordpress themes are now 'responsive'. They have to. But most site owners don't have a clue. They now know & generally agree that there should be a 'mobile' version for their website.
This procedure is intended to help people who like to update their Drupal 6 based site on their own. (Standard disclaimer apply - details below. Basically it means, 'do it at your own risk') :)
Often people ask me about sample layouts for their Drupal based website. Given the needs & features, the layouts can be anything from standard 3 col. layout to magazine style or business style with slideshows, snippets at many places etc.
Now that having a Facebook page is getting a norm for businesses who care to have a social presence online, it is natural to evolve it into a mini website.
Don't know why it should be only Wordpress sites. But I've removed multiple malware attacks in 3 - 4 client websites in the last 3 years, and All of them used Wordpress.
Drupal7 was launched in January 2011. About 7-8 months later, we are now able to practically use it for web projects. Important 3rd party modules such as 'Views' were now available & stable in Drupal7.
Viggie.com is now re-built from ground up, revamped & re-structured to work effectively. The site still runs in latest version of Drupal 6 (ver.6.22 at the time of this writing).
It's a given today, each blog post should have at least an image. Wordpress is more aware of this and have options to easily add images/videos to posts.
Tweetdeck the favorite twitter application that helps coping up & organize our tweet experience is now available for Linux desktops. Clicking 'download' button from a linux PC will turn the button text to 'Installing Tweetdeck'
It seems I will be blogging about browsers more. As html5 & css3 is coming closer to regular usage, browsers are now following Google Chrome.
Google Chrome seems to be gaining acceptance among web developers. PHP Classes blog says that php developers are switching to Chrome. But their chart shows that it's only a trickle.
Bumptop 3D desktop interface is really cool. Just as it is poised to make waves (recently launched a Mac version), Google lapped it up & pulling it out of market.
I have long been a user of Suse Linux. Two months back, I had the opportunity to install & use uBuntu on PC and ubuntu Studio on a laptop. And recently updated my main PC Suse Linux Enterprise Editon 10 to Open Suse 11.1.
I finally managed to find time to move viggie.com from version 5.
The new browser from Google created quite a stir. Lot of speed tests & comparisons with Firefox were available in the net.
It is no coincidence that Firefox is the default browser for most web developers. The reason is not just security or tabbed browsing. It has become an invaluable tool in web development, particularly on creating & debugging XHTML and CSS layouts.
Judging by the reviews on the net, both uBuntu & Suse seemed attractive. I opted to install Suse Linux Enterprise Desktop (SLED 10) for my new PC mainly because I got the DVD.
The home office is getting cramped. So I have moved to a proper office and actively building up the team.
Here I go! I have specific purpose blogs. That were limited in their scope. Here I can talk about the things l like about the net, design and the net life! Almost all I wanted to do.
