This blog is no longer being updated. Last post was “Farewell”.
Wednesday, April 5, 2006
Actually, the date above should have been “March 14, 2006″, because that is the day, which makes this blog a 3 years old.
Some two months ago, when this place was hosted on Diary-X, I had put on a I-shall-be-back notice on this blog/diary/journal/whatever, because there were some other things I had to take care of. I was hoping that I would finish those other things properly and quickly, and then return to this ulta seedha corner and start posting again (once in a month). Things were going as they were planned by me to go, when suddenly, two things happened:
Needless to say, I reached heaven.
But soon, I had to come down on earth. The things I had to take care of kept on moving on their own pace, while I kept on thinking about the decision of to-blog-or-not-to-blog. Then one day, I searched through the caches of Yahoo! and MSN Search, and the decision was made. To blog.
Although all data was lost on diary-X, copies of many posts were there in the caches of above mentioned search engines. Also, since the comments were handled by Enetation (a service with which I have a true love-hate relationship), I was able to retrieve and save them on my machine too. And thus began the work on a new version of Ulta Seedha, which is being visited by you now.
There are so many things that need to be done or fixed in this version, and I just hope that they don’t create much problems for you all. I might even change the whole layout after some time (except, yes, the apples). Feel free to report as many errors or bugs as you can, it would be highly appreciated.
And now to the 3rd year of this blog. On the previous two blogiversaries, I had posted some ultay seedhay stats, telling which post was the shortest and longest, and the duration of breaks I had had, and etc. I was looking forward to do the same for this post too, but unfortunately, I couldn’t retrieve all the posts from the caches, and thus I am unable to make those stats complete. Maybe, just maybe, if we reach the 4th year, then the stats will be back.
And in the end, a very, very, very big Thank-You to you all. For being there to read my nonsense, and for being there to send me wishes and prayers whenever I requested for them. You are all rock stars!
