Where Have I Been for so Long?

You must be wondering why there are no posts or free wordpress themes for so long… :( Well, to tell you all the truth, I have been busy learning some game development and 3d modelling. :) But now I am back and will be releasing a free WordPress theme soon. For now, let me show you a demo of a RPG (role playing game), I have started developing :) To reach here, it has taken me around 5-6 months time but I am happy that I have progressed.

This demo is a prototype of how the combat will take place in the game, or you can say its a taste of things to come…

The World of CSS Frameworks

The world of CSS Frameworks

What exactly is a CSS Framework?

CSS frameworks are just pre-written CSS files which can be applied to your HTML by using the class names defined in the framework. It can be called as a best practice to to define conceptual routine tasks into generic modules that can be reused. For example, all the font syles can be put together in a file called typography.css. Similarly, all the classes related to layout can be put together in another file called layout.css. After modulating the CSS styles, these files can be called within a single CSS file and further integrated into your HTML file.

There are a number of Frameworks you can freely download and use in your projects. To use them, you will need a fair bit of CSS knowledge, some patience and a fair bit of time to get yourself familiar with the layout. The page layout structure is pretty standard across almost all Frameworks. It could be Header -> Main Content -> Sub Content -> Local Nav -> Main Nav -> Footer. The variations on structure goes on and on. If you want, You can make your own structure using the predefined classes in the framework.

Why you should be using CSS frameworks?

The main benefit I think that CSS frameworks have is that they tend to force you to think about how you’re going to organise you code rather than provide you with indispensable tools for your day to day tasks. They are simply a convenience and as such are good for things like wireframing and rapid prototyping. They are probably also a good way to learn CSS layout as well if you can familiarise yourself with the layout code.

If your Mother Gave you Blogging Advice…

Mother's Advice

She would make sure you were buckled up before starting the car

When setting up a blog, what you do in the beginning can have big consequences down the road.  Pick a good quality hoster, set better passwords than ‘password’, do some research before you buy your URL, get some spam protection, secure your twitter handle and start your mailing list.  All of these things can stop you from hitting a wall and flying out the windshield.

She would tell you not to take candy from strangers

It’s tempting to snag that sweet sweet nugget of linky goodness.  When someone you don’t know emails you to ask about link exchanges or buying a link from you, it’s best to avoid jumping into their windowless van lest Google throw you in the basement with all the nasty content farmers. Read More

Tired of Firefox? – Get Google Chrome!

Chrome vs All

Today I have divorced Firefox once and for all (once upon a time, it used to be my hero browser). I was tired of the various issues (choppy scrolling, slowdown of webpages, bloated memory usage) that I had been facing with Firefox for a long time now. I tried making as many fixes as I could (changing profiles, removing cached files, deleting all the extensions) by searching through the Internet, but nothing helped at all. Over the time, it went from bad to worse. It was a tough decision but it had to be taken. So, Goodbye…..Firefox (Though it still resides on my hard-drive, but I am not going to use it anymore)!!

As a replacement, I downloaded Google Chrome (Ver 10.0) and WOW! Just WOW! It really beats Firefox hands down. The browser installation was a breeze, and, orgasmic feelings took over soon after (BTW, this post is being written using Google Chrome). There was no slowdown at all and the pages were scrolling smoothly (thanks to Google for making such a light-weighted browser).

Here are some things that I noticed when I launched Chrome 10.0 browser for the first time :- Read More
