thulika.net update!

Leave a comment

About a month back, I announced that I was moving all the files from thulika.net to this site because of conflicts between Yahoo site builder, Java updates and Win 7.

However, thanks to a good friend, we have found another server, where I could rebuild thulika.net site again. I have started the process, and some of the articles are available now on thulika.net.

If you have bookmarked the previous site, it may work. You may check and make any change necessary. Thanks for your patience and patience.
