Twitter: A new way for social bookmarking

Posted by Herat Acharya AT 2:33:00 AM

twitter logo



There is a new site that i came across (here) that sets new standards for social networking... Its called twitter .


What is it?
Twitter is a community of friends and strangers from around the world sending updates about moments in their lives. Friends near or far can use Twitter to remain somewhat close while far away. Curious people can make friends. Bloggers can use it as a mini-blogging tool. Developers can use the API to make Twitter tools of their own. Possibilities are endless!

Its a social networking service or a micro-blogging service that allows users to post their thoughts in a few words ... It can also be used to post their current status as in "what are you doing now??"........

Plus its pretty accessible ... that is from web, phone or messenger... Now thats pretty cool ....
You can make new friends ... Well some of my friends will love this site ..

Things twitter can be used for??

1. Bloggers or webmaster can use it as a social book marking tool to increase their traffic..
2. More artistic type of bloggers can use it post some random thoughts..
3. Nice site to make some friends...
4. Developers can use twitter API to develop tools for their site or a blog.
5. Its an alternative for scrapbook on orkut ... :D
6. Tell the world "what are you doing now??"

Like i said possibilities are endless .... ....

PS: See the new twitter widget on my blog .... Can't see it.... Make use of urself and scroll down ... Dont be lazy now ..

Screenshots i took...

Blogger CSS tutorial

Posted by Herat Acharya ON Tuesday, July 3, 2007 AT 9:22:00 AM

A blogger template usually provides a specific type of fonts and colours. Many bloggers want their blog to look good and different. But there are ways to change everything from colours to fonts to orientation of your blog. This tutorial aims at providing some insights to CSS used in blog

This can be done using Edit HTML feature in blogger.The basic blogger template format is:

blogger template layout

An HTML normally has two sections an header section and a body section. All CSS in blogger
specified in header section.
Look at the fig:

header section
In this section you can define various javascripts and blog title. The header section doesnt get over with this. the next section is used to define the CSS . Thats what you wanna learn :).

The next is the variable section. In this section various colours, fonts and properties are defined.
The basic format is shown below.

variable section
After defining the variable we can put these values in the CSS by $ followed by name. You'll see that later .

Now changing the background color and fonts of the entire page can be done by changing the
contents of the body { }

body {
background:$bgcolor; // Background color
color:$textcolor; // Text color
text-align: center; // text-alignment
}


For including a background image use

background: url('Path of ur image file');

The next is the hyperlink tag..

a:link { // for standalone link
color:$linkcolor;
text-decoration:none;
}
a:visited { // For visited link
color:$visitedlinkcolor;
text-decoration:none;
}
a:hover { // for mouseover the link
color:$linkcolor;
text-decoration:none; // for underline, overline,etc
}


You can also keep the same values for different tags. For eg:

.post h3 strong .post h3 a:hover {
color:$textcolor;
}


It means that for class .post the tags coming under tag h3 (here strong and a for hovering) will have the same values for different attributes.

Hmmmm...... I hope u got the point......... I think now you can change the header, sidebar, posts, footer and comments section :)...

Cheers!!!! :)

Who am I??

Posted by Herat Acharya ON Saturday, June 30, 2007 AT 12:17:00 PM

Ive been blogging for quite some time now (to be precise from august last year) .... When i started blogging i didnt know anything about blogger , with exceptions of how to post.... :D
Now i know quite a few things first the power of edit html . With my knowledge of html and css (which i had learnt after my 10th grade) and some help from blogs like hackosphere, blogger-hacked i came to know the power of edit html .
I first experimented in my personal blog (expressions of life) , but soon i felt the need to create another blog (I m still at a beta stage though) .

Most of u people dont know me so well this is the non-technical part of my post.... Somethings u wanna know about me (even if u dont wanna :P).....

My name : Herat Acharya
I am 22 yrs old..............
I have just finished my engineering in electronics and telecom from mumbai university....
My fascination for computers began when i got my first pc in 7th grade..... And for internet when i learnt web designing after my 10th grade...

I like to end a line with many dots (love to do that actually :D ) .... btw did u knw that three dots together are called ellipsis ...... well mine is a lot more than that ..... what wuld it be called ellipsisess or something :D ......... So dont be shocked to see loads of dots in my posts....

I like smileys too .... they are the perfect way to express emotion rather than words liek arrgggghhh , woow, hehe, haha,etc etc .....

My first project was a site about harry potter (a big fan of his) .... I had a good code about scrollbar colours ..... Looks like it got out of fashion (mozilla doesnt support it.... :( )....

The next major project i did was the final year intern where i had to make a visual basic program on how to send automatic smses for an alarm system... It was a cool program tho :D...

I know other programming languages like c,c++ and visual basic .....
I would like to learn more about javascript and internet programming... and i guess blogger might be the perfect platform to do that.....

Most of what ive learnt is self taught .....
BTW i am placed in infosys (assuming u knw this company :) ).....

I wuld like to know how my template is.....
Please gimme feedback on how my template is..... What changes can i make.... And ill begin posting soon.........

:) Cheers!!!
HERAT ACHARYA!!!
