Scott Rossi Family Visits Kauai’s Hindu Monastery

Scott Rossi and his wife Jonna and sons Sam and Jack came to Kauai for a vacation and were hosted, yesterday by Brahmanathaswami for a full tour of Iraivan and the media studio. Scott is a top UX/UI software designer who has been building amazing interfaces and software since 1989. Check out his site Tactile Media.

Scott uses the same tools (Livecode) that Brahmanathaswami uses for building software for the Ganapati Kulam media production processes and this web site. For example, every post here on TAKA is built using a Livecode application that allows the monks to write captions and auto generate the javascript for these slideshows.

Scott and swami have been in touch for years through the technical email lists. Scott has always been very generous to the whole community with his expertise and guidance. Thank you Scott! This was a chance for Scott and his family to meet the monks face-to-face to find out more about the monastery, Hinduism and our way of life.

taka is moving

All our websites have been running on a CentOS 6.2 web dedicated server in San Fransisco. We have moved all of these to Linode Cloud Servers in Fremont, California, running on the latest Ubuntu 14.04 LTS system on SSD drives. For the non-nerds amongst us, the web sites are going to get much faster! This transition requires that we not add any new content for several days while DNS propagates globally and the worlds domain system shifts to call the websites from the new service. If are seeing this you are already getting TAKA from the new server....The Big Bird has arrived. Stay tuned for updates.

Archives are now available through 2001. Light colored days have no posts. 1998-2001 coming later.
