About the site

In April 2005, I started blogging at http://silverreflects.blogspot.com/. Blogger is an excellent platform for a beginner. But with time, I began to see Blogger's limitations and started evaluating various alternatives.

In April 2006, after much investigation & testing, I bought this domain name from Lead Networks & shared hosting space for the site from Nettigritty. With these, I moved over to the PHP-based WordPress content management system. The Wordpress site used a modified version of the NFOoverload theme.

After 2 years, I encountered a few Wordpress limitations. In December 2008, I shifted the site to a custom content management system written using the Python-based Django web application framework. The site runs on my own virtual server (running the openSUSE Linux distribution) at Linode. The current theme is a custom one which partly makes use of the Sunny theme from the jQuery UI Themeroller gallery.
