It’s been a great year

This new year marks the first birthday of Killer Tech Tips. Of late, I haven’t written much on this blog. I’m going to complete my schooling in just three months from now, and my final exams begin on March 2. That’s taking a toll on this blog. Till then, posts will be sporadic or you may not see any posts at all.

How to view the original size of a Flickr photo when the All Sizes option is missing?

with 11 comments

When you’re browsing through pictures on Flickr, you should have seen an ‘All Sizes’ option above photos. Clicking on the ‘All Sizes’ option takes you to a page that has links to the photo in various sizes, including its biggest version.

However, some photos have restricted permissions and have the ‘All Sizes’ option missing or disabled and it’s not possible to directly retrieve the original version of the photo.

Some Important Notes

with 19 comments

Hey everyone,

As you know, I’ve been giving a mixture of some personal stuff along with other niche articles on blog.shankarganesh.com. Sometimes, I found it all weird.

Niche blogging on a personal domain name isn’t good after all. I’ve been contemplating this for a while.

At last, I’ve decided to move to killertechtips.com. All tech related posts will be published on Killer Tech Tips henceforth. As for the feed URL, there’s no change, and you can access it at http://feeds.feedburner.com/shankarstechblog

I’ll be losing the authority of my old blog, but in the long term, I hope to build an authoritative blog and a community around, so I had to go off with the personal domain name.

Hope you give your continued support here :)

If you’re wondering who on earth is supporting this site, it’s Mr. Srinivasan. This new year, he’s offering hosting at the rate of Re.1 per MB.

I can assure you that his service is very reliable. You should have noticed that the blog wasn’t down even for a minute when we were on Digg!

He can be reached at sapauljoseph AT gmail DOT com
