the_man_who_knew_infinityExcellent movie. Painfully brilliant. I live to watch such films.

Dev Patel is such a fine actor & he has a long career ahead of him.

People used to have friends.

Now they have smartphones. Oh and their Facebook accounts.

“Go To WP Admin” Chrome extension updated

wordpress_icon2/3 years ago I had created a Google Chrome extension that helps one easily visit a WordPress site’s WP Admin section just by clicking a button, without having to type /wp-admin/ in the browser address bar. This was primarily to scratch my own itch as I need to visit various WordPress site’s Admin sections all day, everyday.

But it only worked when you’re at the root of the domain, not on a page. I was happy that some 78 odd people used it apart from me. Recently when I visited the extension’s page on Chrome Web Store I saw an user has suggested to make it work when you’re on any page. So I tried & was able to do that. Updated the extension to version 2.

Here is a link to the said extension – Go To WP Admin, hope you’ll find it useful.


First post

10 years ago in 2006 I used to have a blog twobytes.blogspot.com, it was mildly popular amongst my friends, I was mostly writing about technology tips, and it was also warming up to occasional organic search engine visitors. You see the name was also clever – instead of saying “my two cents” it was saying “two bytes” which was like my 2-cents worth of digital words. And then one fine day I deleted it on a whim, moved on with my career, time passed by.

Sometimes I wonder if I had continued with that blog, what a massive archive it would have become by now! A decade worth of content.

After that over the years I have tried making several blogs on different domains, but never sticked to any long enough. Always ended up deleting them after a few months.

I also used to be a heavy user of FriendFeed until it was killed. After that I could never trust Twitter, Facebook, Google+ etc enough. There is something about publishing & owning your own content that these platforms can not provide.

Well anyways I believe its better late than never. So from now onwards wherever I go, whatever I do, I will continue blogging here. Looking forward to a decade worth of content.
