Spring Cleaning in Fall: A New Techie Buzz Theme

Over the past few years we have had the same motto. That hasn’t changed. However, I must state once again that "change is constant" and we will always strive for constant improvement. That’s one reason why we try to make everything easier for our readers.

We do this by making changes to the website over and over again. This time around I decided to dirty my hands and do a redesign of the theme for better navigation and content presentation.

I am not a designer per se, but I do dabble a bit in it whenever it is worthwhile. I spent a few hours doing some thinking and designing to come up with a new theme for the site. It has hints of the original theme, but I have tried to keep the content more readable. You can take a look at it in the screenshot below or browse the newly created theme.

Although there are still things that might need tweaking and changing, I depend on your feedback to further improve the theme. Please feel free to browse it and let me know if you want to see any changes in it.

Your suggestions and feedback is highly appreciated and like always the comment form is open for you.

All is Green Here – New Gmail and Chrome Grass Themes

I’ve gone green. I don’t know how it happened. I don’t recycle much and I don’t ride a bicycle to work. I don’t even care much for the green grass in my yard, especially when it’s time for mowing. But I sure like looking at it on my laptop PC.

When I heard Gmail had added 4 new themes, I checked them out and found the Grass Theme. Once I picked that out, I remembered that my Google Chrome browser already has a grass theme. Here’s what it looks like now when I check my email.

gmail.grass.theme

Now with all that grass growing in my web browser, you’d think I’d be happy to stop there. No, I didn’t. I went right out and grabbed a few grass wallpapers and now my desktop needs to be mowed.

I hope this hasn’t made you green with envy. Worse yet, you could have gotten a little green around the gillsif you have allergies. If so, I’m sorry about that. In any case, have a good day and play it safe out there.
