Yes .. Finally I have done it. I have designed a blogger template with same look and feel like of my old homepage at . It need a good deal of hacks and experientation to achive it. Anyone interested to have a look at it can view it at My Testing Ground.

But unfortunately I have yet to make a ready to deploy model so that anyone "interested to use it" can use it. There are some more stuffs to be added to make it much more better. I will make it available it .zip file in near future.

Any feedback, suggestion and query regarding it can be posted as comment or can be e-mailed at

ADOBE This came from name of the river Adobe Creek that ran behind the house of founder John Warnock.

APPLE COMPUTERS It was the favourite fruit of founder Steve Jobs. He was three months late in filing a name for the business, and he threatened to call his company Apple Computers if the other colleagues didn't suggest a better name by 5 O'clock.

After founders - Stanford graduate students Sergey Brin and Larry Page presented their project to an angel investor; they received a cheque made out to 'Google'

HOTMAIL Founder Jack Smith got the idea of accessing e-mail via the web from a computer anywhere in the world. When Sabeer Bhatia came up with the business plan for the mail service, he tried all kinds of names ending in 'mail' and finally settled for hotmail as it included the letters "html" - the programming language used to write web pages. It was initially referred to as HoTMaiL with selective uppercasing.

Hewlett Packard >Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard tossed a coin to decide whether the company they founded would be called Hewlett-Packard or Packard-Hewlett. Intel Bob Noyce and Gordon Moore wanted to name their new company 'Moore Noyce' but that was already trademarked by a hotel chain so they had to settle for an acronym of INTegrated Electronics.

Microsoft Coined by Bill Gates to represent the company that was devoted to MICROcomputer SOFTware.

SUNFounded by 4 Stanford University buddies, SUN is the acronym for Stanford University Network. Andreas Bechtolsheim built a microcomputer; Vinod Khosla recruited him and Scott McNealy to manufacture computers based on it, and Bill Joy to develop a UNIX-based OS for the computer.

Yahoo! The word was invented by Jonathan Swift and used in his book 'Gulliver's Travels'. It represents a person who is repulsive in appearance and action and is barely human. Yahoo! Founders Jerry Yang and David Filo selected the name because they considered themselves yahoos.

  • Let me begin with posing questions on capability of a single html file [without bulky stuffs like applet, flash, or activex]. What can you visualize about the capabilities of a single-page-html file? Can whole website be saved in a single html file thereby making it easier to store, manipulate, transmit and so on? Can such single-page-website be presented in a descent manner? Can they be update themselves [like that of wiki !!!] without using any server side scripting like PHP, ASP, or Perl? Is it possible to edit the content of such web-app from browser itself?

    The answer to all those posed questions is fortunately yes. But very few web-developer knew it. This can be attributed to several factors. The foremost reason behind it is the poor understanding of capability of java script. This is a result of poorly documented JavaScript standard. Most of the web-developer have used JavaScript to add dynamicity to html pages. Web-apps are traditionally being designed with server-side scripting language.

    But sudden rise of interest in development of JavaScript intensive web apps is taking place in the line of Google Maps and Gmail. These success of Google is inspiring many to come up with JavaScript-intensive applications that does many interesting and unthought stuffs. JavaScript-based new technologies like AJAX are coming up in a big way.

    A single page application (SPA) is a JavaScript-intensive web application that runs entirely on client web browser. Typically it uses JavaScript [to add functionalities], CSS [to describe the look-and feel], and HTML. The application modifies its own data structure through its DOM tree, and makes its changes persistent when the user invokes the browser's save page comand to save the modified web page to the disk. It can be optionally enhanced by connectivity to a server.

    Here are some nice examples of SPA applications

    The key properties of these web apps is that you can do a "File->Save Page" in your browser to get a personal private wiki. Now lets have a brief tour of these applications to have a idea of the ircapabilities.

    TiddlyWiki TiddyWiki is a MicroContent WikiWikiWeb made by Mr. Jeremi Ruston. By MicroContent we mean self-contained fragments of contents that are typically smaller than the whole page. These are also called as "Tiddlers". TiddlyWiki aggreagates these tiddler items into pages that are loaded in one gulp and progressively displayed as user clicks hyperlink to read them. It allows anyone to create personal self contained hyper text documents. All the content reside in a single html document, needs no server side stuffs, and can be updated from the browser itself. It is published under an open source lincense.

    It is possible to change the look and feel of this web-apps by suitable change of CSS (Not an easy task for begginers), and several beautiful templates have come up like TiddlyKubrick, TiddlyRin, Blue Mist, GTDone Style, Tiddly Tag Style, Tiddly Sinister, ZeldMan Orage Style. People have tried to build-up several variations of it like MyWiki and IeWiki.

    The third version of TiddlyWiki has got a rich set of features like Compatibility of most modern browsers, Generation of RSS Feed, Auto Save, Save Backup, Custo Style Sheets Keyboard Shortcuts, Rich Foratting, Embedded Images and Macros.

    And no doubt, because of such rich feature set it has been used by many people for different purposes like homepages, blogs, community portals, and writing Fictions too. A big list of such usages of TiddlyWiki can be found out at

    You can get your own copy of blank TiddlyWiki here.
