    And it’s 15 years!

    I set up ajaydsouza.com as an experiment to test this new blogging software called WordPress exactly 15 years ago. I never thought the site would continue till this day. But it did survive. I am glad that this site has remained the place I can pen my thoughts, talk about my life and proudly release my work. I started writing in the early days of blogging and before Facebook.Β In the beginning, this blog was a place I wrote about my life, blogging daily on many occasions. But then, work caught up, I became a lot less frequent. Today, most of my posts are about WordPress plugin releases with a sprinkling…

    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?

    And it’s a decade of blogging!

    Yesterday marked the 10th anniversary of this blog. What started as an experiment to check out a new blogging tool called WordPress back in 2003 has become an integral part of my life. I completed my engineering and worked as an engineer in one of the leading engineering companies from India. I then went out to do my MBA, became an investment Banker and relocated to London. And, I married the most beautiful woman in the world. And even went on quite a few holidays! WordPress became an integral part of my life as well. My theme became famous and my plugins have a fantastic user base. And, I have…

    So what is ajaydsouza.com all about?

    This blog has been called lots of things: excellent, good, fun, enjoyable, and even boring, monotonous, horrendous (ok not this one). The most recent comment has been “boring”. So, why was it called boring. Because, it has been a while since I made a personal post. This blog sees two types of visitors, viz. those who visit my blog for the personal posts and those who visit my blog for the WordPress related posts, plugins and the theme. When I started ajaydsouza.com in October 2003, I had only one thing in mind, blogging about my life. In fact, even till today, most of my posts are still filed under Personal.…

    I’m alive!

    When someone decides to message you all of a sudden and grumble that you are not blogging, then it is an indication that it has been a while. Well, I know it has, considering the last post was a month back. However, my life is so full of work, that I honestly, don’t have much to blog about. Anyway, as an update, I have been working long hours all through the week and the concept of weekend is a blur. e.g. I worked till 1.30am on both Thursday and Friday! Weekends that do come along are spent with me resting all day long. Well, that’s life of an investment banker.…

    A Week went by with some New Lookers

    What better way for a blogger and a developer to pass his time than to blog and develop πŸ™‚ That’s exactly what I have been up to this past week or so. New Plugins So, the past week has seen a new plugin added to my already growing list of plugins. Over, the next week I intend to continue work on the plugins. I plan on scrapping a few ones which have long since served their purpose as well as reworking others. The latest ones could also do with many feature additions. So stay tuned for a few releases πŸ™‚ New look for Techtites I’ve also been working on a…

    13 days later

    No, I am not talking about the movie, but just the last 20 days of my life; life that has kept me so busy that you haven’t read about any personal updates. So, here’s a quick round up of the last two weeks of my life. The week from 19th to 24th of Jan was like any other week of my life. Spent all of it blogging, reading, eating, talking and sleeping. 23rd was the first and last test of this semester. The test was on Strategic Marketing. We were given a choice between a two simple questions and a case on TESCO. IMO, education should be practical and case…

    SCM Ratings and Pongal Lunch

    Began the week with a presentation in Advances in SCM on Tuesday (Monday was just another day). Our job was to rate the supply chain of any company in any sector. We chose Glenmark Pharmaceuticals. We had to rate their Inventory Turnover, Asset Turnover and Cash-to-cash cycle time to arrive at the final rating. Yesterday was Pongal, which is a festival celebrated by Tamils on the first day of Thai to mark the harvest. As part of Pongal, there was a special lunch organized with a huge variety of food, sweets etc. Needless to say I ate a good deal πŸ™‚ Spent the rest of the day in my room…

    75% MBA

    As I mentioned, I returned to SCMHRD, rather reluctantly I must say. Spent the entire day catching up on blogging and finally got down to finishing the synopsis for the Finance paper before retiring to bed. Realized I had forgotten one of my hard disks in Mumbai itself, which means a good amount of entertainment awaits my return. Friday was lecture day. It began with a four hour lecture (which got cut short to two) of Strategic Marketing and this was followed by an Advances in SCM lecture. Dinner on Friday night was at McDonalds when a whole bunch of us headed out there. The normally freezing AC at the…
