A New But Still The Same Old Header For Me

A New But Still The Same Old Header For Me

Category: Personal


.....

Ever since this site was born on February 6, 2009, I have been using an image of an ark carrying various words instead of animals as header. Pumbaa and Timon are also in the driver’s seat instead of Noah.

If you ever wondered what the image means, well…

… the ark represents me, my name is Ark of course…

… the various words represent my worry-free thoughts…

… and Timon and Pumbaa are there because from them came the famous African phrase “Hakuna Matata!” from the movie The Lion King, which happens to be my motto by the way. Hakuna Matata! simply means “No Worries!” It’s written all over the rainbow if you have not noticed. 😉

So after almost 6 months, I decided to change my header.

But I did not do a total revamp. Just a slight change. You see, I have been having bandwidth limit problems these past 3 months due to this site’s high bandwidth consumption. Aside from the heavy traffic, one of the main culprits was my header. It was too large and consumes much bandwidth. So, aside from transferring to a new host, I also made my header smaller.

Using my amateur photoshop skills, it took me 2 hours to do the necessary changes. And presto! I now have a NEW but still the same old header.

For the sake of comparison, here are my old and new headers:

    “Spot the Difference” ba to? Hahaha.

    Let me enumerate what I’ve found:
    1. yung search box, nalipat sa baba.
    2. na-move yung rainbow puntang kanan.
    3. naiba yung picture sa google ads

    Nice work sir art. pareho silang maganda.

    I haven’t see the difference until i compare the befor and after screenshot. lolz

    Anyway, still nice work for your header. 😀

    Btw, you might want to check your site in Chrome as I’m encountering “Malware Detected” notice when browsing your site in Google Chrome today and for the past days but when I check it in Firefox it has no problem at all.

    May walware detected nga, dahil sa link ko sa pinoy top sites. Kaya tinanggal ko na.

    Thanks for pointing it out ha. Tsaka kung hindi dahil sa iyo, hindi ko masusubukan ang google chrome. Maganda pala at mukhang mas mabilis kaysa sa firefox.

    Hehe, salamat again.

    Hi Ark,

    Ayun ok na sa Google Chrome.
    Yeah, mabiis talaga sa Chrome, kaya ito ang gamit ko when dropping EC and visiting Adgitize sites
