Articles and News

That looks really good. Nice pictures on the front page. What about putting on the DS articles on the articles page on top of the CricInfo stuff thats on now. You could use New Age articles as well (newagebd.com). Its the new daily brought out by the Holiday team.

October 5, 2003, 12:02 AM
That was the next thing I was gonna do.

Are there other bd english newspapers worth linking to, other than these two?

Aligning the article to "justify" instead of "left align" might improve the look even further.

October 5, 2003, 12:29 AM
You're right. Justify does give it a nice symetric feel and it looks good over all. I tried that before. But when you start reading the actual article, you can see the words on some lines spread apart from one another. This makes reading them kinda awkward. I guess that's why most professional news sites I have seen avoid using justify.

Ok Folks, the News and Article section for England's tour has been updated.

Now it has links to around 25 articles containing various pre-tour news. Plenty for you to chew on.

Of specific interest are the two new articles published on the british news website 'telegraph.co.uk'. One of them actually contains some good historical info on what happened when the English last time visited Dhaka during East Pakistan era.

I will update the page once more right before the series starts.

Here's the link to the news section:

Just thought you want to know.

The england tour page gets viewed about 35 times per day. So far it got 713 visitors in October.

And, 25 people has made it their entry page (bookmark).

That's nice. I thought only I did that.

And of those 700+ visits, I think a considerable chunk is mine for reviewing purposes. :)

It does not count the same IP twice on the same day.

So if you come many times today, it will count that as one visit.

October 20, 2003, 04:58 PM
So theoretically, you can be maximum 20 out of those 713.

October 20, 2003, 05:04 PM
That's nice.

Although, I have to mention that I also visit them from my college lab pcs. And last friday I visited from a Burger King terminal on Broadway in NYC. :)

The front page still has the Test preview by Samir. It should have the scores of the first Test, and one of the reviews, perhaps Samir's From the Gallery article.

Also, the articles page has not been updated since before the first Test and the Squads page show the 20 member preliminary squad but neither the first or second test squads.

Tehsin Bhai will take care of things for the rest of the series. I am drowning in midterms and lab reports and assignments and project proposals and GRE preparation and....
