Weekend Notes

  • I have started on a new mega-project cataloging about two thousand illustrations sketched by my father documenting tribal life, and their relationship to the ancient cavemen. It is one of the most valuable collections Kamat left behind. Unfortunately, I am not proficient in this area, and the only cross-reference I have are some notes taken by my wife when she was in India. Thank God, we have them, although she has used the Korean script to write down the proper names of the tribes and artifacts!
  • SimplyBlog Meets Blogger API -- I created a demo application, Best of Kamat Blogs, joining my Blog Engine with Content Management, URL Management, and SQL processing is done at Kamat. While hosting, archiving, and broadcasts are done on
  • Frankenstein Blogs are why BlogSpot is Slow -- I had heard all kinds of bad things (in terms of performance) about BlogSpot hosting, and was pleasantly surprised at how fast Best of Kamat Blogs loads. Apparently, it is commenting, Blog-rolling, and other tools is what slows 'em down.
  • I've added a new tab Regularly Updated blogs listing most frequently updated India blogs.
