    Happy New Year 2018!

    As most good things come to an end, so must 2017. Browsing through my list of posts for the past two years, I realised that I completely missed out a Happy New Year post for 2017. Can’t miss that two years in a row now, can we? 2017 – A Year in Review Life… I began 2017 in India, more specifically being ill in Bangalore where I (as did Ashwina) spent a good portion of the holiday in bed recovering from bad allergy attacks. Apparently I can’t handle the pollen and pollution anymore! At least it got better when I got back to Mumbai where we were soon well enough…

    Book review: Dan Brown’s Origin

    I’ve always enjoyed reading Dan Brown, right from the time I read Da Vinci Code. I know a lot of people went crazy questioning faith, questioning the book and more and it’s an argument I find pointless. However, it does remain that he is a good author. Since then I’ve caught up on a lot of his books particularly when Google Play or Amazon threw me some offers. So, when I spotted that Origin was ready for release, I pre-ordered it and it to be delivered to my kindle which is on its last legs. So what exactly is Dan Brown’s Origin about? Robert Langdon, Harvard professor of symbology and…

    14 Years of Blogging

    Been traveling over the past three days and I completely forgot that I missed October the first. 14 years ago in a city far away from here, I decided to set up this blog as an experiment. It’s been 14 years of blogging. I must confess I’m not as regular as I used to be, but hope to get back with hopefully something more interesting to write. Any suggestions?

    Journey to the Isle of Skye – 5 years later

    A long long time ago or five years (if you consider that long), a much younger version of Ajay and Ashwina went down to the Isle of Skye. This was pretty much our first big holiday as husband and wife which sparked a whole set of adventures that we have had over the past several years. I’ve usually been reluctant to do the same trip again because there are so many other places to visit and it’s hard to relive the magical experience you have the first time around. However, as her parents were in town and Skye remains one of the most beautiful places in the UK, we decided…

    Happy birthday to me!

    It sure has been a while since I wrote a personal post and today is definitely a good day to write one as I celebrate my birthday today! The day turned out to be quiet yet positively eventful. Got some good news yesterday at work, which has become really hectic over the past several months, or should I say year? At the US embassy This morning began with me making a trip to the US Embassy in Grosvenor Square for a relatively early morning appointment. I’ve always wanted to make a trip to the States but never found an opportunity just yet. With a trip on the horizon, the first…

    Contextual Related Posts v2.4.1

    I pushed through Contextual Related Posts v2.4.0 to the WordPress.org repository today (Update: 2.4.1 has been released to fix a few bugs). This version adds some much asked features including randomising the related posts and also limiting them to the same post type. You can find both options under “List Tuning” in your settings page. Randomising related posts has been a much requested feature by many users. The challenge with randomising the related posts with mySQL is primarily performance along with many unrelated posts getting priority. In this version, the related posts are first fetched based on the limit that you specify e.g. 6 posts based on the screenshot below.…

    Knowledgebase v1.4.0

    Cross-posted on the WebberZone.com blog I’ve just pushed through the latest version of Knowledgebase. This version of the plugin has some minor fixes in the CSS which make the layout more presentable and aligned (Provided by Colinsp) Additionally, I’ve also added a brand new set of options that will allow you to include Knowledgebase articles in your main blog feed and also disable the knowledgebase feed completely.
