Error Activating The WordPress Theme

leave a comment »

I am trying to tweak the looks of my blog since last few days. I tried Digg 3 for a while, but some how it felt too much as if the theme was meant if I was trying to sell stuff. Just didn’t like it.

So when I was trying to activate new theme, I kept on getting this error

You are not authorized to use that theme.

So I got confused. Quick googling revealed that it was my browser, not wordpress.com. I’m currently on one of the nightly build of Firefox 3.1b2pre a.k.a Minefield. It has been great using Minefield so far, except for such minor blow-ups once in a while 🙂

So while the link above suggested using Firefox, they surely didn’t mean bleeding edge version.

In case you are curious, I used Google Chrome to activate the new theme.

गूगल वापरून देवनागरी लिहिण्याची सोय

leave a comment »

गूगलचे http://www.google.co.in/transliterate/indic हे संकेत स्थळ वापरून देवनागरी लिहिणे अतिशय सोपे आहे. परन्तु गूगल-च्या स्वतःच्या chrome ब्राउजर वर गूगलची देवनागरी लिहिण्याची सोय नाही. Indic Transliteration साठी फक्त माइक्रोसॉफ्ट-चा इन्टरनेट एक्स्प्लोरर किंवा मोझिला-चा फायरफॉक्स वापरता येतो. हे थोड़े गमतीशीर आहे 🙂

जोडाक्षरे लिहिणे काही वेळा थोड़े अवघड वाटते परन्तु थोड्याच प्रयत्नात योग्य लिहिणे जमते ह्यातच गूगल-च्या सेवेचे वेगळेपण दिसून येते.

Update [April 02, 2009]

गूगल ने आता देवनागरी लिपि त्यांच्या जीमेल मधेच उपलब्ध करून दिलेली आहे
त्या मुले वेगळ्या संकेत स्थला वर जायची गरज राहिलेली नाही

ह्या सेव बद्दल गूगल ला अनेक धन्यवाद

Google Chrome : First Impression

leave a comment »

As you may already know, Chrome is the new browser from Google. Windows version was released to the world on Tuesday Sept 2nd, 2008 US Time. Quite possibly because Sept 1st was Labour Day Holiday in US. In India, especially in Maharashtra, we have a major festival called Ganeshotsav on Wednesday, so I was busy with the celebrations. I did not get to this new Shiny tool till Thursday India time morning. Here are my first impressions (within few minutes after using the browser)
