I have not posting for the last two days. The reason is because I was making Techie Buzz go green. I am proud to release my first Wordpress theme for my site. This theme is currently not available for public downloads but I will make it available very shortly, there is still some work to be done before I can release the theme publicly.
Do let me know your thoughts about the new theme. Also let me know if you are seeing any problems in different browsers. I have tested it with Firefox2, Flock, IE6 and IE7 on Windows XP. Opera users please let me know if there are any problems with the theme.Read More

I had recently written a post on how to get your favorite folders in the places bar. But as unhappy I am with the limitations in software I always try to create ways with which things can be accessed easily without having to do much.
The Places Bar has a limitation where you can only have 5 folders at a time. I have nearly 20 folders I open or save files from so that is impossible with to add them to the places bar.Read More

Top Commentators plugin highlights the commentators who comment frequently on your blog. It has been a great plugin to reward regular commentators since wordpress started adding nofollow to commentators website url in regular comments to thwart spammers. Adding nofollow to links tells search engines that they should not be follow it as a part of a link from the current site. Techie Buzz does follow all your comments with a DoFollow plugin.
Coming back even though top commentators plugin allows you to reward regular commentators there are many a sites that I have come across that have the owner of the site featuring in the top commentators section.Read More

You may have come across lots of files which you can open in different software’s. Every file extensions have certain applications they can open in. Some file extensions can open in multiple software’s too, for example a jpg file can open in the default windows photo viewer or Photoshop or a custom software you have chosen.
When you install a software sometimes it is programmed within the installation to set up the software as the default viewer for a particular or multiple extensions. For example if you install Firefox it will set itself as the default viewer for HTM and HTML files. Of course you can disallow this from happening in the advanced options while installing the software or by modifying the options in your favorite software to set it as the default one.Read More
I have seen lots and lots of link trains so thought I should start one with a difference that gets out thoughts on what changes you would like to see in things that you use rather than just getting a train around.
It could include anything that you use from a software that makes things better for you or your television which needs certain improvements. The only criteria is you have to talk about what changes you would like in it to make it better. You can additionally link to original site from where you downloaded the software so that they can read your views and make it better.Read More
If you use a laptop then you will definitely know the ease of taking your computer around, another added feature is that you may not need to shutdown your computer as frequently you shutdown a desktop. Though the theory about shutting down a desktop can be wrong too.
I have gone with a couple of weeks without shutting down my laptop constantly putting it on hibernate and standby mode. In fact the only time I shut down my laptop is when I really need to when its running really slow or when some updates have been installed.Read More
I am not a Windows Vista user and definitely would not switch to it in near future unless I buy a new laptop. But few of the new features that Windows Vista has are really good and I would definitely like to have few of these in Windows XP.
I just took some time of my break as I could not resist talking about this nice little software that helps you get another feature from Vista.
Windows Vista has a cool little feature where it displays the navigation as a Breadcrumb just like a website does. Clicking on any link will take you to that folder thus making navigating a better experience.Read More
