  • Thoughts for good RIA Navigation

    My Friend JD post nice post about, “What should be the User Navigation for RIA?”

    I would like to give my opinion about it, Interface and Navigation should not be much complex. User should feel relax even if he is novice.

  • WordPress Driven!

    With this new year, I planned again to go with blogging.

    MT 1.3 created problem while i was trying install on new host. I was tired of Internal Server Error. (Mostly Known as 500 Internal Server Error). I fought a lot to get backup entries of my old blog. i.e. generating that export file from movable type so I can import it to WordPress.

    Finally My Friend Ritesh – Actkid helped me to do installation test on his server and somehow I able to get that export file finally!

    WordPress is really have nice feature of importing MT. I am damn sure that many people will use it, who tired of nasty nightmares of Perl! and Huge Uploading required for Installation of MT.

    So now my Blog is UP and running fine. :)

    Still I am playing with template and customizing according to my need.
