WordPress 2.7 has been released and after downloading and upgrading it, I am in love with it, again. The interface has been given a complete overhaul and it is pure elegance as well as much more functional than the old versions.

    • Movie and music reviews.
    • Programming tutorials, tips and techniques (C and .NET framework).
    • Technology (One can find countless topics to write about in this one).  (more…)

    • WordPress was the obvious reason because of its usability, dynamics and */read text between brackets of point two/* (for the fear of sounding repetitive).
    • Hosting is real cheap these days.   (more…)
