Switched to WordPress

If you are reading this, then you are informed about my switch from Blogger (http://fslog.blogspot.com) to this wordpress based installation. I got free hosting from Zeeblo and got a free .be domain name. I had installed WordPress 2.0 and its blogger import tool offers painless import. No need to change your blogger template manually. You just have to write the blogger username and password and the script automagically imports the site. It also returns your old blogger site back to the same state.

Things to do:

  • Categorise over 90 posts
  • Point my feedburner feeds to the new one
  • Write some pages (about, about me, etc.)
  • Install the required plugins. Almost done.
  • Install a new theme

I think I must do all these stuff in college, as it begins from tomorrow.

Update: I have bought a new .com domain name from Yahoo and it is http://www.fslog.com

Krusader – File Manager for GNU/Linux


Krusader is an advanced twin panel (commander style) file manager for KDE and other desktops in the *nix world, similar to Midnight Commanger or Total Commander. It provides all the file management features you could possibly want along with extensive archive handling, mounted filesystem support with a built-in mount manager, search module. It also has an internal viewer/editor. You can also rename whole batches of files.
It also has FTP/SAMBA accessing with SFTP/SCP support. So you can safely send your files accross the network. It is a nice tool and I must thank Iain for pointing out this one.

Happy New Year

First a very Happy New Year to all. I must first apologize for not posting regularly. But yesterday I went for a reunion among my old school friends and we had a great party. I think this year onwards I must try to post regularly and also try to write nice articles. I am planning to shift my blog from Blogger to a WordPress one. I must get some money first and try to get some space. If you feel like donating to it, please mail me at srinivasanr@gmail.com.
And Happy New Year again.
