I am back after a long break.

The past month has been like a roller coaster ride. Have been to many places met a few people but did not work much. Work wise I should have done a lot but have kept a lot of things on hold. Hopefully I am back again from my long slumber and I will try and keep this blog updated with more information as and when I do or find something new.

Tried out the new google spreadsheet program; it seems like a good option for me as I hate installing any application which I would never use. But as I get some data from clients in XLS format it's a good place for me to view it and even edit it. Plus the good part is that you can share the spreadsheet with your friends or clients. I tried to open a few XLS files and it works really great. For most of my work this program seems more than enough.

Also tried out google analytics and have installed it on this blog and http://viamatic.com/ and so far I have got really interesting results of what kind of people visit this blog. And the funny part is that I was expecting more people from India but most of the people who visit the blog are from US or Poland. This is kind of information which gives a good feedback of what people are expecting from a site or blog. Most people on the blog come through google while most people visiting viamatic.com tend to come directly and that is kind of amazing. This is kind of information that is really important when you are working on an ecommerce website. A few months back I was working on an ecommerce website and I could see how this information could be helpful to those guys.

I have been using the new yahoo mail for over 2 months now and they added a few more subtle changes to the interface. Though the changes are small but they make a major difference while working. I like it more than the other email programs though I wish they could cache the JavaScript forever and increase the response time. Will try and write a little more about these and other topics as and when I get time.
