Free Minimalist WordPress Themes

Free Minimalist WordPress Themes

I think I’m bored.

Wait, I’m always bored.

Aha! I know… I’ll develop WordPress Themes.  Hmmm, I’m a minimalist.  So, maybe I’ll create Minimalist WordPress Themes.

Don’t worry, I know PHP. Honest! (Quick, what does PHP stand for? Don’t! Google! That!  You’re right, it’s Philippine Peso.)

But… where to start?  Ah, yes, here.

So… check back after about… a month.  Maybe I can create a Minimalist WordPress Theme that you’ll like.

Gender Guesser

Gender Guesser

Here’s a cool application that guesses your gender based on your browser history. I know, it’s scary, right? No, not the gender guessing but the ability of a web application to look through your browser history.

groovenet.jpgThe past few months, the Filipino social networking site, GrooveNet, has been buzzing *silently* across the Philippine web.

When you register at GrooveNet, you get an avatar for the 3D World and a profile page in the GrooveNet site itself.

You can upload MP3 songs to the music player provided in the profile page. Also, the profile owner can move around the panels. Moreover, the profile owner can add custom panels as he/she pleases. The owner can then add widgets to these custom added panels. Read the rest of this entry

I support the initiative to drop Internet Explorer 6 ASAP a hundred and one and one-half percent. Well, I haven’t been supporting IE6 for maybe six months now anyway.

VAMP – Vista, Apache, MySQL and PHP

VAMP – Vista, Apache, MySQL and PHP

So, you just bought a new desktop or laptop and it came pre-installed with Windows Vista. You decided to maintain a blog and you would like to customize its theme. You know that customizing a theme is tedious so you decide to setup a local version of your blog. You download the Windows version of Apache, MySQL and PHP. Problem is, with the supposedly more secure Vista system, you can’t make some of them to work with the other.

I’m sure you’ve guessed by now that I’ve experienced this. Using the ever trusted Google, I found this. It’s very neat – it has a video of how to install Apache, MySQL and PHP on Vista.
