I found out today that some people have pigs are pets. Maybe it’s coming from a Muslim country (Malaysia), but I guess I never entertained the idea of having a pet pig. I also found out that some folks came up with piggy banks that look like actual pigs, though I must say I’m still in favor of the Hungry Pig piggy bank I saw at the Singapore Art Museum. Maybe I should get a piggy bank again, as I’m currently storing all my spare change in a plastic pot (yes, with three tiny holes at the bottom too).
I also found out that some people are plain strange.
I’ve been using Dropbox for quite some time now and surprising, there are still a good many people who aren’t familiar with this service. In a nutshell, it’s a service that allows you to keep a folder in sync in various locations, so you’ll be able to access your files stored within anywhere you are (iPhone, other people’s computers, your other computer etc).
While I’ve been using several online storage services before this, one of the main benefits of Dropbox is that the sync is invisible to me. I just drop the files into the folder and Dropbox automatically keeps it synced with the server, using a tiny symbol to indicate if the file is synced or not. While I really wouldn’t suggest you use it to do backups, I must say that it’s a very useful tool to keep your files backed up in the cloud. One more thing, there’s also built-in versioning, so if you delete or screw up a file on your computer, you’ll be able to pull up a previously saved version of it from Dropbox (again: don’t rely on it for backup, though).

I have this thing for logos and design, so it’s a welcome surprise for me today to notice that Google Chrome (my default browser on the Mac) has been updated with a cool new logo. No idea if there are any new features in the browser, but I’m more interested in the logo at this point. The logo is now flatter, and looks more like the current crop of logos, and I kind of like its faded/lighter colour scheme. Will it make the browser any better? Of course not, but I like nice designs :)
Woooo!! I never thought I’d actually get this done, but the site is actually ready to go live!
At this point is still incredibly minimal, but I’ve achieved the basic stuff that I set out to go. At this point, I’ve got my theme installed, got the blog running, photo gallery installed, and a contact page setup. Not too bad for a newbie. Now I’ve got WordPress running as a CMS, yay!
There’s still a long way to go, but it’s the first step that’s the hardest, and I’ve managed to do just that!
Amazing! I can’t believe I actually managed to create and upload my own WordPress theme! I’m proud of myself!
It’s far from finished, but it’s been a great learning experience and I’m looking to further fine tune it. Stay tuned!
