When my site www.ggsipu.info grew to 10,000 members, It started receiving more than 2500 visitors per day. I was excited to see so much traffic on the site. It shows that people like what I had been doing and I was happy that I was able to help them in their admission process. Unfortuanately Dreamhost shared hosting was not able to handle that much traffic and my site used to go down many times a day. It is really irritating to see your site down. It used to affect my visitors. Well I will not blame Dreamhost because I can understand that in shared hosting multiple sites are running from a single server and thats why the prices of shared hosting is so much affordable for small businesses like mine. I talked to Dreamhost support and they suggested me to go for VPS which is Virtual Private…

Hey Guys today I am going to write a review of one really nice cloud hosting called as - Uhuru (http://www.uhurucloud.com). I received an invitation from a lady on linkedin 2 days back and she asked me to review this Cloud Hosting for free. She mentioned that I can host any database driven application on the free trial. Well I not new to Cloud thing so I immediately checked the site and signed up for the trial.
The login was pretty straight forward, if you have Google, Microsoft or Facebook account then you can simple click on any of these services and you will be logged in to their service in just seconds. Cool stuff. I like fast sign ups.
The moment you log in you will be presented with very neat interface where you can simply click on the big green plus sign to add a cloud.

Managing comments and all those spam was a pain so I have disabled comments publishing on this blog. Well if someone is interested in giving us work then he/she will anyways call me on 9811787069 or send a message using contact form.
This is part of de-cluttering things in my work and life in general. I really dont care what people think about me and I really don't need their opinion, reading comments and replying to them is just waste of time. So no more comments now.

This was one of the most anticipated day of the year for me. I used to prepare for this day months in advance but things have really changed. We are sadly grown ups now and act like matured people. Life is not that fun as it used to be 20 years back but we should look forward. This is life nothing is permanent and I can only cherish those nice days, there are many other exciting things in life now. Not that wonderful but still life is good.
My mind is cleared up now and thinking in right direction. Going to focus on one thing only now.
I was doing lots of things - Maintaining my own portals, making just average sites for clients and some other non exciting work. I was not really enjoying that a lot and it was hard decision but I am not going to accept usual website development work now.…

I was going through a difficult phase since last week. I couldnt work and focus well. I realized that I am burned out and my body/mind refused to support me. During these 4 days I did lot of thinking which is good thing actually and realized that it was not over-doing but doing-a-lot that was the main problem. I was just doing so many things simultaneous and frankly I was not going anywhere. Now I am trying to de-clutter stuff in my work and making things simple. Idea is to do only one thing at a time and only one thing.
I think I have realized that I am not really good in blogging so I will probably shut down some of my useless blogs that were consuming lot of my time and I will also stop accepting mediocre work. I really need to do some self development now and focus on things that I…

Today is Dhanteras and it is really amazing time of the year. Everyone is in festive mood, people are doing shopping and preparing for Diwali. I am also doing great but feeling little low since yesterday, it happens sometimes with me. May be it is because I am just over stretching myself and not giving enough rest to my mind. Just needed to take a break so today on Sunday I didn't really do anything. The whole day went unplanned and I loved it. Feeling little better and charged up for the next week.
Another exciting thing happening is the Drupal Delhi Camp that is going to be organized next month on 8th Dec and Drupal Delhi Community is really doing lot of work to make this event successful. If you want to be part of this event then please register yourself at http://drupalcampdelhi.in/…

Life is great and things are turning out to be very well these days. I am really excited about new things that we are doing at sparxsys. For a long time we were just two people in the company but recently three new amazing people joined us and we now have a team of 5. Though we are a small company but we do follow lot of Project Management practices internally to be able to deliver quality to our clients and on time. We don't do work in bulk. We just take limited projects and deliver the best. There are lot of things to take care in managing tasks and projects in a company which is small. Things like planning, scheduling tasks to members and making sure the workload is balanced and then keeping track of things. At the same time there are changes in the original plan due to change in…
