    Arya-Sayyeshaa Wedding: Photo Slideshow Video

    Above-embedded is a photo slideshow video made by me using the wedding stills/photos released by Arya & Sayyeshaa in their respective twitter accounts.

He has given a number of hits including Ullam Ketkume, Boss Engira Baskaran, Madrasapattinam, etc. Did you know that his actual name is Jamshad Cethirakath and that he was an assistant software engineer after graduating from Crescent Engineering College, Chennai? Did you know that Arya not only participated in the 300-KM Vätternrundan bicycle race, a recreational bicycle race held over two weekends at Sweeden, but also won a medal in that race?

    My Smartband BUZZES every 15 minutes I don’t move!

    So I bought a Smartband – Titan Fastrack Reflex Smartband that I am wearing on my wrist for most part of the day. It’s like a watch, but looks very modern and has a small digital display. Of course it shows the time, date, etc. But I bought it for another reason – it has a sedentary reminder alarm. That means, it buzzes every 15 minutes when I keep continuously sitting at the same place. Since my work is predominantly on the laptop, there are times when I sit down and work even for 1 or 1.5 hours continuously. As you can guess, it’s a bad idea. But nowadays, these…

    Sri Vaari Party Hall @ Kolathur, Chennai

    Above embedded is the promo video made by me for Sri Vaari Party Hall, located at Kolathur, Chennai. Actually, this party hall belongs to a good friend and a fellow blogger Sarath Babu and his father. They invited us to the opening ceremony where we got a chance to click a few photos and videos. This is a 1700 sq. feet A/C Hall with a seating capacity of around 100-120 people. It is targeted smaller events like birthday party, engagement ceremony, seemantham, get-togethers, etc. It seems they are already getting requests for hosting small wedding receptions too! They have tie ups with event management/catering firms, which customers might want to…

    Our New Mobile Phone with a STYLUS – LG Q Stylus :)

    Presenting to you our new mobile phone(s) with a Stylus – the LG Q Styuls Smartphone 🙂 Frankly, I was researching the best camera phones as we take a lot of selfies and other photos. This mobile was not in the list of camera phones I had shortlisted. However, when I was casually browsing for new phones, I found this model released by LG three months back that actually had a stylus in the economy-mid budget range. If you didn’t get the punch in the last para, read ahead. I was using Motorola and HTC phones with stylus for many years (I guess around 6-7 years). I was happy operating…

    New WordPress Gutenberg Editor & Atomic Blocks Theme ROCK!!

    As you maybe knowing by now, I have a Video & Powerpoint Creation Website. I am using self-hosted version of WordPress in that site also.  Recently, WordPress released an update (5.0) where they changed the current TinyMCE editor to blocks-based Gutenberg editor. For my other website, wowsuper.net, I had used a premium theme with a theme-builder that enabled me to build my homepage using sections. But this update broke that theme-builder plugin, so I was looking for alternative themes – preferably one that was built for/supports Gutenberg editor.  WordPress themselves have released the Twenty Nineteen theme that integrates fully with Gutenberg. In fact, in the distraction-free version of the editor interface,…

    New Server Cake!

    If you had tried to access this blog over the last few days, you would have experienced very slow loading time or website being inaccessible. That was because, my trusted web-host of 9 years suddenly seems to have made some major changes on their servers and all my websites were loading very slow. One was totally down. I tried fixing the issue with their tech support, but they were not able to help me. Previously, for the most part, either I didn’t have to contact the support or my issue was solved quickly over chat. It never escalated beyond that. But this time, even after a couple of days, there…
