First thing I saw when I turned on the computer is this: Shamelessly, in the middle of the office, I exclaimed “NANYATE?!” And decided to do this:   The End — Yes, this is a crappy entry. And yes, betcha everyone said “nanyate?!” when the logged into their Gmails today, because everyone has Gmail. I…


New Theme: Torii (Alpha Release)

After I saw C-class designers copying my previous theme, I felt compelled to come up with something new. So here is something I created in less than a day. It’s nowhere as pretty as my last layout, but I tried my best given my time constraint! This theme is called ‘Torii’, which is the gate…
