Of WordPress and tumblr…

WordPress and tumblr

WordPress trying to emulate tumblr. lol.

My last post here was last week. I was amused today when I noticed the unfamiliar landing page of WordPress (not sure if this change is recent). Anyhow, this new feature (again I am not sure it is a new feature indeed) immediately reminded of tumblr. Though based on my personal bias, I do not like tumblr — or should I say, I prefer the ‘hardcore’ blogging style of WordPress than the ‘easy-go-lucky’ approach at tumblr.

I have my own account at tumblr that I registered two years ago, that I failed to maintain. Curiously I revisited my site and revealed that my last post was still on October 2010. I should say, I still post here at WordPress, and I am confident to say this account is still active.

While I understand that WordPress is trying to compete with other blogging sites, including incorporating networking and social media elements such as that found on tumblr, I just lol’d imagining an old grandfather wearing some fancy hiphop dress in an attempt to look cool like his adolescent grandson. lol.

Though of course, in the real word I further understand that WordPress needs to reinvent itself in order to gain more ‘market share’. Perhaps I may find this “quickie” useful on my other posts (not to mention that I have had made similar quick posts previously). In any case, I wish WordPress success, and I will always be a loyal fan, thankful having it as medium chronicling my lucid intervals.

Anyhow, I will now post my original thoughts prior to noticing what was mentioned above…

Facebook and Poker

Weekend with Facebook and Poker

The photo above illustrates how I spent my weekend (some Facebook, and some more poker — though most of the time I am busy coding for another web application that I am currently working on).

Interestingly with the iPad, I was able to play Zynga’s Texas HoldEm Poker, which I was not able to do for I think about 2 years already, as this game (site) was restricted here in Saudi Arabia. I would just want to wish, the government will not also ban this game on iPad. I do not play FarmVille, CityVille, CastleVille “or any other ShitVille” (he he), though I love to play poker — and I only play with free chips (I have never purchased any chips before nor I have any intention of buying chips).
