Improved Page Speed

We had made great strides in improving the page load speeds by using various tools and techniques at disposal for a website designer/administrator. Testimony to that effort is much reduced page size and improved loading speed.

Using Font Awesome

Finally zeroed on Font Awesome for vector icons. It gives  scalable vector icons that can instantly be customized — size, color, drop shadow, and anything that can be done with the power of CSS. Thank you guys and is avialable at http://fortawesome.github.io/Font-Awesome/

Thanks to  MaxCDN for providing the excellent BootstrapCDN, the fastest and easiest way to get started with Font Awesome.

Welcome to ChemEngg.com – Chemical Engineering Information Exchange.

I had brought the domain many years back (well before Y2k) with sole intent of creating directory for chemical engineering web sites. I had developed and sustained this site with that intent for more than a decade. Due to career growth and it associated side effects (work pressures and travel) wasn't able to give time that caused it to temporary demise few months back. Many friends and well-wishers were inquiring about it going offline and it did motivated me to bring it back strongly as a portal.

I am planning to work for few hours every week to make it fully functional and please do bear with me for a month or two. Trying to learn many new technologies in portal generation (literally means only new for me) and would like to take an opportunity to thank many selfless souls helped to create these open source tools so people like me would be able to develop portals with out much of programming. My special appreciation goes to the folks who had developed Joomla CMS and plugins associated with it.

Let me introduce self, my name is Srinivasa Rao Koyyalamudi.  As you might have already realized it is was hell lot of a long complicated name to remember and address back, so the corporate world had shortened it to KS. Please get back to me with any suggestions you have to me by sending email.

Wishing you a Happy, Prosperous and Healthy New Year 2015.
