Redesigned - faster loading, better accessibility for mobiles, slow internet users

I recently redesigned by using the nixer theme which is one of the most lightweight Drupal themes, and seem to work best for newer mobile devices like Tablets, Smartphones, and most internet enabled devices which has a web browser.

I also installed Drupal Boost which is a caching module which cache Drupal posts, and serve out Static HTML pages to visitors. This means this site now should load faster, and can handle more traffic at one time without slowing down the rest of the website because of a spike in traffic.

Now this website should load faster on slower internet connections like dial-up, mobile, ISDN, and economy class DSL and Cable internet.

Now my website should load in a few seconds for most internet connection speed types.

The sidebar is at the right of the website now, so users who use mobile devices like Cell phones, and Tablets in portrait mode/vertically can still read my articles as long as their resolution width in portrait mode is big enough without zooming out. Older Mobiles with lower width resolution in landscape/horizontal mode can also easily view my website without zooming out if their resolution is high enough.

This means more users who visit this site will be able to view my site comfortably on a cell phone or tablet without horizontal scrolling. I also got rid of some modules in Drupal for faster loading since there are fewer objects on the site to load.

Revamped Ubuntu 8.10 install and Update tutorial site.

Recently, I decided to improve the navigation, descriptions, pictures, and readability of my Ubuntu 8.10 Install and update tutorial site to make it more easier to read and understand for most computer users from Beginners to more advance Ubuntu users. I removed the weird theme I made many years a go. I decided to make the colour of the background white and the text black. I also added some videos on burning the Ubuntu CD, Starting your computer from the Ubuntu CD, and Installing and updating Ubuntu 8.10 on a home computer. I also improve the html code, so my website should load a little bit faster on most internet connection because there is less code to process.

Enable Single Mouse Click for Ubuntu 9.10 and below !

Turning on Single Click in Ubuntu Linux will save you time and your mouse button from breaking faster since now you just have to click your left mouse button once to open files, folders, and programs in Ubuntu 9.10 Linux.

All you have to do is open up any folder like your Home Folder in Ubuntu, and go to edit menu option on the top of your folder explorer.

Pick Preferences from the edit drop down menu then go to Behavior.

In Behavior, pick Single or Double Click if you turn on either single or double click the one that is not selected will be off.

Click Close on the Preferences Window. Now you can launch programs with one click which will save you a click, and extend the life of your left mouse button since you use it less now.
