Those handful of you regular readers will have noticed that I’ve been doing some redesigning of the blog’s template and changing of the WordPress theme. I’ve changed my theme far too many times to count, I must say. Unfortunately, WordPress themes are like hot women….there’s always a hotter one round the corner!
Along with the theme, I had also wanted to change the plugin for the social bookmarking sites that preceed each blog posts. Nothing much with the earlier one that I was using but I felt that the icons were a bit too dull, unless you bring your mouse cursor on top of them! Then the icon changes to a more colourful one. So here comes Sexy Bookmark Plugin.
You can download the latest version, 220.127.116.11, here at the official website. Or you can also download it at the WordPress plugin page as well. As far as social bookmarking plugins go, this one is really sexy.
Although I have a copy of the 1994 movie Star Gate that started it all for this franchise, uptil a couple of weeks ago, I had not watched anything else that the SG universe had dished out. Until I stepped into the dvd store that I frequent and was shown the dvds of the season 1-3 of Star Gate Atlantis. Man, do I like this series or what!
Ok, for those who don’t know Stargates, devices used to travel through great distanced in space, were created by a much more evolved human race called the Ancients who seeded the humans on many planets across galaxies. Our team find out the mythological city of Atlantis on a planet called Lantea, in the Pegasus galaxy, submerged under the ocean by the Ancients after they were defeated by the Wraith.
Our group of milatry personel & scientists battle the Wraith (who were humans infected with the iratus bug and mutated into human feeding immortal freeks) and try to settle on Atlantis as they can’t return back to Earth due to lack of power to establish a wormhole using the Stargate. They try to establish allies with the humans living on different planets but come across some hostile races as they look for power sources for Atlantis.
The Wraith finally reach the lost city of the Ancients as they know about Earth and her huge human population which can provide a rich feeding ground for them. Just before they arrive, milatery backup arrives from Earth who have finally managed to esatablish a wormhole link with Atlantis and they defend the city against the attacking Wraith. As season 1 ends, heavy casualties include a presumed dead Lt. Ford who is attacked by a wraith.
Today is Rosh Hashanan a Jewish holiday commonly referred to as the Jewish New Year!
Although I’m not Jewish and I do not have any religious inclinations towards it, the Jews have always fascinated me. There is a big synagogue in Mattancherry, my mom’s hometown, but I hear that there just a handful of Jews left in the state.
Another reason for noting this particular holiday is the name – I’m a Rosh and the holiday is a Rosh! A Rosh by any other name will smell just as sweet!
I kill myself! I’m pretty fly for a Rabbi!
