Many of you might be wondering what's up with me and my blog. Nothing. I just got very busy at work buried in bits and bytes and lost touch with the world of hacks :). My job is to write drivers for Application specific chips (ASICs). Our new chip arrived earlier this month and we were busy bringing it up for many hours a day. It's a different world at my work, somewhat less glamorous than Hackosphere. There is nothing "visual" about it and it's much more complicated than developing a hack for Blogger. It is mostly a rewarding experience but also boring at times. This is one of the reasons I stepped into the hacking business.
So, is this the end of hacks from my shop? I guess not. But I am not sure when I will come up with the next one. After developing a major hack like Neo, I don't seem to get another idea that interests me enough. It should be something that makes a difference in the functionality of a blog. Somehow, cool CSS tricks, hacks that only improve the look etc don't interest me. I hope I can come up with some such thing and find the time to do it. If the first happens, the second will!
(For those who bought Neo and asked for improvements, I will definitely try them before working on a generic hack.)
