Its has been quite a month , no posts on PingSense. I was pretty busy writing exams and had no time to write for pingsense. Also my Godaddy shared hosting server was expiring and had to move around 25+ sites to my brand new Virtual Private Server(VPS). I’m back again with a Bang !
While reading this post you might have noticed some new stuuf on PingSense. Yes ! Change has come to PingSense.
* Virtual Private Server
PingSense is now on Godaddy – Virtual Private Server(VPS). A VPS is like an semi dedicated server. A server is divided into many parts and simultaneously many virtual servers are created using virtualization softwares like Zen and OpenVZ. Now I have a server with 256MB RAM which is burstable upto 1GB, with 10GB Disk Space and 500GB monthly Bandwidth. Thats more than enough for a small site like mine. This will provide me more control over the server. I can literally do whatever I want with my server. Other features include better performance of site, more flexibility, secure etc The only drawback is managing the server and I hope I can do it properly
* New Look !
The old template of PingSens ewas very flashy. Thats was good for an entertainment site not for my blog. I was searching for an simple template and ended up with The Morning After theme for WordPress created by Arun Kale. The features include Clean grid-based design, Support for WordPress widgets, Three-column home page, “Featured” post highlighting, Support for WordPress’s in-built image wrapping classes and galleries, Threaded comments, Support for asides, Support for Gravatars, Option for readers to email posts to friends, Option to switch to a print-friendly view to print posts and many more… I hope you too liked the it !
An aside is basically a very short post, more like a note. It could be an interesting link that you want to share with your readers, or just a quick opinion about something. This was an very essential thing for me since sometimes its hard for me to find time to write long posts. I could just share some things which I may like in the web world and can’t keep explaining about it. I’m pretty sure you will like it !
Yes ! Finally PingSense is on twitter. Twitter is a service to communicate and stay connected with exchange of quick frequent short messages. It has revolutionized the defination of Social Networking. Hereafter all the posts being on PingSense will be automatically twitted with TwitterFeed. Please follow us on http://www.twitter.com/sandeephegde
* Community Toolbar
I have added a new community toolbar which can be found at the bottom of the page. This toolbar is powered by Wibiya. The toolbar will help the PingSense community to be engaged. It has a quick search option making it easy to find things around. Latest notifications can be read immediately.The content can also be translated into various languages easily. You could find the recent/random posts at one click. You can post into facebook or twitter using the toolbar. You could also read the rss feeds and play games if you are bored!
I hope this will make my readers ( you ! ) happy. I will try to keep adding more features in the coming days.
