    Off to Bengaluru

    If you?re reading this post, I?m already on the plane or maybe even in Bangalore. If you?ve been following this blog for a while, you?d know that I got placed through my college last November. As required by the job, I have to relocate to the city of Bangalore and the time has finally come for it. This is in fact the first time I?ve ventured out of the safety of Mumbai into the unknown. Two years back when I set out to do my MBA in SCMHRD, Pune, I knew that I had everything planned and fixed with no need to worry about food, clothing or shelter. This time,…

    New Support Forum

    I recently moved all my sites onto my VPS and noticed that the Support Forum broke. Repeated attempts to fix the same were useless. So, instead of reinstalling SMF, I decided to give a shot to bbPress. For those who are not aware, bbPress is forum software from the creators of WordPress. bbPress includes complete support for integration into WordPress. However, I haven’t utilized that feature since I don’t have registrations on this blog. bbPress allows you to create new themes (something that I may work on in the future) as well as extend its functionality with plugins. I’ve installed a few that I thought were essential. I’ve created two…

    Review: iRemotePC – Remote Support Service

The service allows them to remotely control clients PCs with ease and fully encrypted security without pre-installing any software on the remote side.

    AjayDSouza.com Support Forums

    I had already posted about the launch of the support forums. I have gone ahead and dedicated an entire domain to them instead of the subdomain. You can access the support forums at http://www.ajaydsouza.org/ Let me iterate that support queries will only be answered in the Support Forums. I will not answer any support queries in comments or email. Additionally, I have chosen to restrict these queries only to my designs. I will not answer third party queries unless they have some relation to my work. They are only time consuming and since I’m working for free (haven’t got many donations coming in) I deserve the right to restrict my…

    Structural Changes

    Was planning on getting this done by Jan 1, but was unable to do so. Have been working slowly behind the scenes to change some things about this blog. 5 posts on index For one, I have reduced the number of posts displayed on the index page in order to speed up initial loading time. (used the Custom Query String plugin for this). The archives still show the default ten posts per page. AjayDSouza.com Support Forums Secondly, the AjayDSouza.com Support Forums are now open. It is powered by Simple Machines. These will be used exclusively for any support related issues for my plugins, themes and hacks. I will not be…

    Have been experiencing problems with my other blog and so following a suggestion by Michael, I visited #wordpress at irc.freenode.com. Seems like quite a nice place to get help and maybe provide some. Gonna be there more often, especially since I’m serious about development for WordPress. As for the problem, others have been facing the timeouts as well. Am just going to wait and try later.
