It’s been a long time that, I am maintaining my sites and blogs. Yes… you are reading correctly, there is a S after the words SITE & BLOG. Which indicates that I do have multiple sites and blogs. Having multiple websites and managing all of them is really a tough task. I was trying to merge them all into one single site so that I can manage all of them smoothly and painlessly!
Well… It seems that now I got that chance! Thanks to Russell John and his company Trance Host for giving me that chance! Now I have my own domain… WWW.QUAIUM.COM ! I put our family site in the top domain (though I have no clue what to do with a family site), and took a sub domain for my site. And then did a tremendous(!) job to merge all of my websites and blogs in to this site. And thanks to Tareq Hasan, who helped to modify the theme for my site.
Now on, I have only one site, and that is ~ WWW.ADNAN.QUAIUM.COM. For the last couples of years, I used to write Bangla blogs under the pen-name “OVRONIIL”. At that time, I also had my own blogs both in English and Bangla (where I use my real name), my personal website (I did not use wordpress.com blog for my personal website, rather I used a free hosting service) and another Bangla blog under the pseudonym “OVRONIIL”. All of those sites and blogs are now merged in to one site. Which is really a great relief for me. That means I do not have to login 3/4 sites to manage and update them all. And which also means that from now on I’ll regularly maintain my blog (i’ll try my best). It seems that, at last, I’ve owned a home… my home!
So, dear reader, if you were a regular follower of my blog(s), now it is time to update your bookmark, replace those old URL(s) of my blogs/sites with this new one! If you were not a regular follower of any of my blogs then it is time to add my blog into your bookmark list!
By the way, did you notice that today is the binary day? October 10, 2010! Which represents 10.10.10! One, zero, one, zero… and so on. Guess what! A perfect day to announce my new BINARY ADDRESS!
Happy Binary day!
A little note: I started my first blog on October 2007, exactly 3 years ago!
It is December. It is the month of victory of Bangladesh.
This a request. A request to store the history of our country by us… all Bangladeshis… all of us. This a an attempt to capture the glorious moments of the liberation war of 1971 for us as well as for our next generation by us. For this initiative a blog has been opened. It is not quite ready yet but it will be for sure.
All Bangladeshis are kindly requested to reach this information to other Bangladeshis (especially to those who can contribute this site by their memories, stories, experiences… anything). We are waiting to taste the actual history from the history makers themselves.
We are waiting!
You should already all know about the New 7 Wonders of Nature campaign. And you should know that Cox’s Bazar is in the top 5 natural wonders too. But we have to promote Cox’s Bazar more and more. Previously it was in the first position but now it is in third position. We need more campaign.

Last year, on October 19, I started this blog, more precisely I published my first post in this blog. At that time I started this blog whimsically, I had no idea whether I can continue it or not. I started it as an experiment for just to know how it is felt to have a personal blog. But after a year later I’ve to admit that blogging is fun. Specially it is more delightful when I got comments in my posts. Publishing a post and getting comments on it is just more than fun!
Within this 12 months my visitors has been increased in surprising rate. In the first month I’ve only 220 hits in my blog while this number is 2500 (average) per month now a days which concludes a total visitors of more than 30000! Yeah… its a huge number for me which I did not expect during the starting days of this blog. Thanks to all of my reader for having with me and commenting my posts in these days.
These days I am too busy with other stuffs which keep me away from my blog. That’s why I am not available here frequently! But I hope to back in blogosphere with my frequent appearance soon.
Thanks to all of my readers and commentors again for influencing me to keep this blog alive.
I’ve recently develop a site where all the blogs from Bangladeshi bloggers will be listed. Mainly for last few days I’ve searched the web for a blog directory where all the Bangladeshi blogs but I didnot find any. Actually I found one in 3rd World’s View. I wanted to make a complete directory where any one can find any Bangladeshi blog in a simple and easy way. And here comes BD Bloggerz.
I’ve listed as many blogs as I could, but for listing all the blogs I need the help of all the Bangladeshi bloggers. It is a open request to all – please make post in your blog about this site and please inform others by any means, it may be by email or forum posts.
Well I’ve never heard of it earlier. But it exists! it is Blog Day. A complete day for blogging. And the day is today, August 31,2008. Well… this day obviously has some themes. This day inspires all the bloggers to have one day dedicated to get knowing other blogs and bloggers from around the world. Also on that day Bloggers will recommend other blogs to their blog visitors.
So according to the Blog Day manifesto, here are blogs that I am recommending to visit to my readers.

It is really a shocking news that Google is going to collapse it’s Google Page Creator (GPC). Instead of GPC they are introducing Google Sites (GS). I’ve noticed it recently. I couldn’t resist my surprise at this news. GPC is a simple way to create web pages without knowing HTML. GPC’s rich text editor is now included in many other Google services, but Google decided to focus on the more powerful GS. Google doesn’t allow new users to sign up for GPC. While current users are still able to use the services of GPC, new users are being directed to its sister site, Google Sites. Google is expected to move all Page Creator content to Google Pages later in the year.
Google Sites is almost similar to GPC. I said ‘almost’ because it doesn’t allow users to upload any HTML file. Which means users have to pick the websites’ look from GS’s default template; users don’t have any privilege to set their own HTML pages. It is a bad news for me, because all of my GPC sites are using their own HTML files not GPC’s default one. Though Google said that they will shift all the files, images and web pages stored in GPC to Google Sites later this year, this may be a concern for some as it will lead to broken links because GS and GPC follows a different URL structure. More over as GS doesn’t support any uploaded HTML pages, the transition may permanently delete all of those unsupported files. To me, GPC is far far better than GS.
I actually have no idea why Google is closing their one of the most popular web services. Google Sites is nothing more than a wiki. Do the people need a website or a wiki for their personal or business homepage? Google is saying that GS is more powerful than GPC as GS uses the contents management. Well… this is the only thing the GPC is lacking of. Wouldn’t it be better if the feature is added in GPC? Wiki is obviously an important feature in today’s internet, but people will not like it as their home page. So, what if both GPC and GS are staying side by side? I don’t any necessity of closing either one for surviving the other.
Users of GPC is already depressed hearing this news. They still believe that GPC will not be closed at all some how. They have also taken an initiative to save the GPC by a petition. The same debate is going on Google Page Creator Discussion Group. I recommend every GPC user to sign the petition. And above all I still believe that the world really still needs Google Page Creator. So a request to Google, “Can’t you please save the Google Page Creator from it’s termination!“
This post is not a Mayoral campaign of Chowdhury Irad Ahmed Siddiky for the Mayor Election of Dhaka 2008. This news is published here because I found it as an interesting news and nothing else.
It looks like Bangladesh is entering cyber world for election campaign! Just in Facebook I’ve seen a Bangladeshi named Chowdhury Irad Ahmed Siddiky is campaigning for the Mayor Election of Dhaka 2008. Well… it amazed me much. I’ve never seen any Bangladeshi candidate running propagnda in cyber world for any kind of election before. And I think we got the first one!
His name is Chowdhury Irad Ahmed Siddiky. He has a
Facebook account. He has a regular blog. And he has a campaigning page in Facebook also! It seems that Bangladesh is entering in a new era of election campaigning. Whatever I could remember that once I had read the political blog of Sajib Wajed Joy (son of Sheikh Hasina the former PM of Bangladesh) but for some reason it is now not updating anymore. Apart of this I could not recall any personal site or blog of any of our political persons. In that sense Mr. Siddiky did a great job. Also it is not a bad idea to grab the young generations by wandering in the cyber space. To my concern, nobody had done it before. No doubt that he is a learned person but the question is how perfect is he for the Mayor of Dhaka? Well if you visit is Facebook Campaign page, you’ll find some 200 supporters, and whatever I know rest of the people of Dhaka have hardly heard his name!
I am not going to the argument about his winning chances, but… hey… it is indeed a interesting fact, isn’t it?
