Saying 'Good Bye' to my long silence...

My dear regular readers are already aware that I was away from blogging for around two years; and this post is to notify all of you that I am back, starting to share knowledge again as earlier. The only reason for my silence was my master's in Computer Science, six years after my bachelors in Computer Sciences & Engineering. As I have gained a lot of experience from the industry, I decided to improve academic foundation further; and I feel the decision was correct. During my masters, I was privileged in learning so many different subject matters like distributed computing, high performance computing, wireless networking, natural language processing. Most interestingly, I selected cryptography for my research thesis, which I love the most.

My thesis project was specially on ECC (Elliptic Curve Cryptography), and I completed it as planned. Most of these topics will be discussed in details in future posts.

New domain name



While I was engaged in master's, my previous domain name (digizol.org) expired, and someone was opportunistic enough to buy that before my renewal. The same person has put it back for sale on godaddy site for a huge price (USD8,800) due to the popularity of the blog. Eventually I moved the site to digizol.com.

However with the lose of previous domain name, site traffic went down considerably from 63,000 to 10,000 as shown in the below graph.


As my domain name is lost, some of the popular external links to my site are no longer working, and I would like to request you to notify me if you notice such.

I'd like to emphasis the importance of on-time renewal of your domain names as there are people keeping an eye on the fast growing sites.

If you are a newbie, I'd like to request you to read through some articles and consider subscribing in a suitable way like Facebook, Twitter, RSS or Email.
