Am I going to be famous?

The new Prothom Alo website was launched last 16 September. Within last two weeks we have experienced ‘something’ which are really very new to all of us. Prothom Alo had published an ad on that day in their printed newspaper announcing the lunching of their new website which has brought million of visitors to the newly launched website.

According to Alexa, on this day Prothom-Alo.com got the highest visitors within it’s present history. That was wonderful; again alarming for us. We should agree that we had some limitations which has caused sufferings for many visitors – they simply didn’t able to reach the website.

But within few hours we were able to fix most of the primary obstacles. After that we start getting feedbacks from the users. We received more than three thousands of feedback within just 48 hours! It’s true there were some feedback criticising the new design, some of them were really worth taking and we are still trying to combine them to the website.

Well, today Prothom Alo published an article about this new website. They mentioned our name in the article… ha ha ha! Am i going to be famous? It’s something new to me and the truth is I am feeling good.

Thanks Prothom Alo!

prothom-alo.com : a milestone!

prothom-alo
this was the very first screen shot of latest prothom alo website. till now it has changed lot...

i am congratulating myself… the new prothom-alo.com is live now!

a year back when i first got the call from the daily star, it was like a dream to me. last one year i’ve passed half of my office time watching the news sites. i am still doing the same thing and comparing my work with the standard of the leading news sites and found that may be i’ve fulfill a dream of mine somehow but it’s still far way to go! prothom alo is the highest visited website of the country. so the plan was making it the biggest news website of the country. I was so pleased that people chose to stop here after perhaps a game of online bingo (www.foxybingo.com) or in between checking their emails. i know there are still lot of opportunities to serve the users but i hope this’d be an example. i am still studying and hope the next one would be definitely better and i am waiting to tell you about that.

Photoshop CS3

Photoshop became a part of my life because I spend almost 8 hours with this software everyday. I am used to with just Photoshop 7 version though adobe has introduced some other newer version within last 2/3 years. Once I’ve tried the Photoshop CS years back but it didn’t suit me. Few days ago I’ve installed the Photoshop CS3 and worked few project there. I liked it. It’s much better than the CS though I still prefer the 7 because I learnt Photoshop with this version and I know it better. From the very first day I liked mostly three new features of CS3:

1: its revised hand tool which allowed you to scroll the canvas all around the screen and let you work at the last pixel of canvas.
2: option to create folder inside a folder and multiple layers selection option just with a ctrl+click.
3: cool interface.

I think it must have some other new options and there are some problems too. You must have to have a very good configured pc. It took almost 2.5 gb hard disk space and when it works you can’t work with other software properly. If you increase the history states and you work with a large file, it starts showing ‘scratch disk full’ message. Otherwise it’s a cool software and I hope I am going to like it.
