This site runs on WordPress 2.7.1. Other than the standard plug-ins (Askimet Spam Filtering, Google SiteMap Generator and Extended Comments Options) I am also using Peter’s Date Countdown Widget Style Yo! (no relation :) ) and Automattic’s WordPress.com Stats plugin. The weather badge came from Weather Underground.

The site is hosted by the fine folks over at Dreamhost.com. If you’re looking for shared hosting, I endorse them without reservation. They are as close to perfect as I’ve ever had with a web host

This site runs on WordPress 2.2.1. Other than the standard plug-ins (Askimet Spam Filtering and Extended Comments Options) I am also using Peter’s Date Countdown Widget Style Yo! (no relation :) ), a Twitter Widget, which I’m using for the sidebar status, and Automattic’s WordPress.com Stats plugin. The weather badge came from Weather Underground.

The theme I am using is a slightly-modified version of Cutline. I used PhotoMatt’s random image script the rotating header image. The images themselves come from Flickr where I search for Creative Common licensed images tagged with “Kathmandu” – please check out the list of attributions.

Theme: Cutline

I have been using Cutline since the first version of this website which was launch in the summer of 2007.  Starting with version 1.1, I have upgraded to 2.2.  I have some custom css and layout code in the header.  I wanted to keep the original look of the site and I wanted to use my own rotation script.  Cutline is a great theme – check it out and use it on your site.

Header Image Rotation Script

Because I wanted to be able to just drop images in a folder and have them included in the rotation of header images, I went with Matt Mullenweg’s excellent Random Image Script.

Header Images

All header images are taken from Flickr, tagged with Indonesia and are licensed under the Creative Commons (Attribution and Remix allowed).

Previous header images were taken from Flickr, tagged with Kathmandu and licensed under the Creative Commons (Attribution and Remix allowed).  Unfortunately I have lost the list of links for these images and I am not able to properly attribute them.  However, these images are no longer being used.

Thank you to all the many photographers who have been so generous with sharing their work with the world.  The Creative Commons is working.
