Welcome to Hulozila
What started out as a collection of unrelated interest, is now a full working website. In case you are wondering, the word Hulozila doesn’t mean anything. In fact, before February 2010, Google did’t even know the word existed. The idea of having a unique name comes from real world examples. Think about McD, Pepsi, Walmart, Twitter and the first thing that cross your mind (if you heard these words) would be the company itself and its product. That is what I hope Hulozila will be.

Buddha is a religion that started out in Lumbini, Nepal and UNESCO even list the site as a world heritage site for being the birth place of Gautama Buddha or Siddhārtha Gautama Buddha. Gautama Buddha is considered as the supreme Buddha. The word Buddha actually means “the enlightened one” or “awakened one”. There are many speculation about the time of birth for Buddha with the most recent one being around 486 to 483 BCE. That is pretty old. Currently, Tibet is widely known as a Buddhist country but South Korea and even Japan are big time followers as well.

The world map above is a reproduction of Zheng He’s map, created when he successfully navigated around the world. As you can see, it is not that accurate but does resembles the world as we know it today and the guy did it about 600 years ago.
The map above was drawn by Abraham Ortelius and he was among the first people in the world to suggest that the world was once a large continent and drifted apart to form the world as we see it today.
What the world looks like today with the help of satellite, camera and lots of computers. One thing you may notice is that there aren’t any clouds. How do they do it? Well, the satellite have to continuously take pictures of various parts of the planet and hopefully get one shot where there isn’t any cloud around. The data is then sent to a bunch of computers that will intelligently stitch the image together to create one large image.
The image above was made using a computer program that was written in the Perl language. What you see is an accurate representation of the world with desert, ocean and forests clearly visible. And when you compared that to the first world map above, you can see just how far we have progressed.

What does Hulozila have to offer?
I started with 2 basic stuff that I love (in no particular order), Wallpapers and Wordpress Themes. Wallpapers are divided into 12 or so different categories and some of them are either in normal resolution (4:3) or widescreen resolution (16:9). You can check out the sitemap page for a complete listing of all wallpapers and wordpress themes.
For Wordpress Themes, you can find few free ones and as you will notice, too, that the names for each theme are unique. Finojaho, Dojuniko, Pujugama are examples of names I have chosen. I must say, it is getting harder to find unique names that are also easy to pronounce. For each theme, I have designed them with CSS Sprite concept in mind so that minimum amount of graphics will be loaded to display your blog or website. All graphics are combined, compressed (with lossless compression) and displayed using simple CSS techniques, which allows you to get faster page load for each pageview. For non-tech guys, it means faster web page display and lower server load.
What tips does Hulozila have to offer?
Hulozila, as you may have figured out by now, runs on Wordpress. I find Wordpress as an excellent CMS for managing a website. Wordpress is so flexible, you can turn it into any type of website you wish and the best part, it is open source, a.k.a free. If you decide to use Wordpress to manage you website or blog, do consider the following plugins: W3 Total Cache (an all in one caching tool to speed up your blog or website), Wordpress.com Stats (to see how much traffic you are getting and where they come from), Login Lockdown (secure your login page to keep out amateur hackers from continuously guessing, brute force your login information), Breadcrumb NavXT (clean, breadcrumb navigation to help your website visitors get where they want to go, quickly) and finally Akismet (filter out spam comments).
What is next for Hulozila?
Honestly, I have no idea, yet. Right now, I just want to add more wallpapers and free themes. I am also working on Yukozimo.com. Yukozimo is a collection of short questions and straight to the point answers. It is still work-in-progress and hopefully will grow bigger over time.
