Launching the new personal web site: Web Maze

Finally I’m done with my new personal web site. Name, “Web Maze”, and I’m damn proud it. Yehhh.After number of initiatives, and different designs, this looks better, I guess. Just finished the final touch-up with a Guest book, php server support from the CS department. I used to upload all my previous web stuff into Texas State web server, but find out they have no support for the server side scripting. But our CS department web server is fully functional with mysql and php plus, remote login to the server, what else to expect ha?

For a long time, I was thinking about doing something like this, with all my stuff, research, academia, personal into one place and have a professional looking web site. Yeh….finally I’m there.

Check out the web : Web Maze

Hurricane Ike – Hope this will stay away the 150miles as expected?????

Yep. First experience with a hurricane like this. As I learnt, the closest we can expect this going to be from our location is about 150miles. I mean the center of the Hurricane Ike. Today, (September 11th) it’s about 700 miles away from San Marcos, TX, at the Gulf of Mexico. And the land fall from the coastal area of Texas going be Friday or Saturday morning, probably Freeport, TX.
I’m just wondering, how big this going to be? Hopefully not bigger than the 150miles of radius, right? Our college web states that for the moment, all classes are on time and no changes, but they are on continue monitoring with the situation, due the fact that the circumstances can change at any time.
This Saturday 7am, the Hurricane Ike center will be 40miles away from Houston, TX. Hope things won’t be so ugly like Hurricane Katrina.

Here’s a nice web site to check the current situation and the path of the Hurricane Ike. U can click on each predicted center position and get the distance from it to other locations. Nice work.

"Google Chrome" web browser- Awesome

I just installed the new Google web browser "Chrome". Its awesome, page loading is super fast. Some problems are there working with sinhala fonts, thats fine this is just beta right folks?

I like the interface pretty much and its quite simple design, i guess that may be the reason for fast performance.

We'll see how the things moving.........

Update: I kinda settled with Opera :)
