New Theme – Handcoded

by on Mar.06, 2011, under Personal

I finally sat down to code my own theme –

Wrote the entire thing from scratch (except the comments section, which I copied from another theme). Used a lot of help from the net for the actual coding – the XHTML, PHP ans CSS bits – and a lot of help from Sonali and Madhur in designing the layout. The logo was designed by Madhur.

I now have something I like. Comments welcome, also if you see any errors – please let me know asap – as this is still a work in progress. Let me know if you can see the slideshow on the top right hand side properly – its been giving me errors intermittently. . .
And the toolbar at the bottom is the Wibiya toolbar from wibiya.com

  3. Kesroli and Neemrana trips
  4. Trip to Sanawar for founders
  5. Going back a bit – Srisailam trip in 2009

Am going to keep this list on top and get down to writing the blogs.

DIY – Digital Picture Frame

by on Jul.16, 2010, under Computers

I had an old Dell Inspiron 6400 lying around at home and decided to install Linux on it – had been dabbling with Linux for many years – but as it was never the only operating system on the computer – didn’t really get ahead with it. Also the plan was to make a multimedia center that I could control with my mobile. I had been doing this on my mac using Salling Clicker, but had no idea what I would do with the Dell – so, as is usual in such cases – Google came to my help.

The feature-set I had planned includes:

  1. Digital Photo Frame – slideshow starts as soon as the computer boots
  2. Media Centre (controlled via Bluetooth mobile):
  3. Control wi-fi router through Bluetooth mobile
  4. E-book server – Serve e-books to the nook over wi-fi
  5. Remote access via ssh and vnc
  6. Sync music, videos and photos from usb HDD (to-do)
  7. Send commands via email – e.g start slideshow, suspend, start/ stop torrents, etc. (to-do)
  8. Act as a wireless server for my macbook time machine
  9. Display clock while in slideshow mode
