Happy New Year, everyone! Welcome to 2016!
We are so excited to start the new year! 2015 has been a significant year for Tech ARP. It was a year in which we revived not one, but two websites from dormancy.
Tech ARP – Then & Now
In 2015, we brought Tech ARP up from its low simmer over the last few years, to full blast! We started slow but we finished strong in the end.
Thanks to the phenomenal efforts of Team ARP’s Ken and Chai, we not only migrated Tech ARP to a new SSD-cached cloud server, we also revamped its backend and design. Check out the culmination of their joint effort!
The new website not only looks sleeker and loads faster, it also allows Team ARP to invite new writers to join the team. So let us know if you would like to join Team ARP and contribute to our never-ending quest to write about our passion – technology!
The Rojak Pot – Then & Now
Tech ARP originally started as Adrian’s Rojak Pot in 1998 (yes, we are now of legal age!!!) at the URL of www.rojakpot.com. I named it as such because I wrote about everything under the sky. Eventually, it got pretty big and focused on Tech. Hence we renamed it as Tech ARP, with the ARP paying homage to its humble origins.
In 2015, we revived www.rojakpot.com, and rebranded it as The Rojak Pot. The idea was to return to its roots and use it to write about more diverse topics – from health and medicine to politics and military affairs, from scams and hoaxes to food reviews and satire. Basically – a literal rojak!
Take a look at how Adrian’s Rojak Pot looked like in 2001, and how The Rojak Pot looks like today :
The Rojak Pot was revived only 6 months ago, but we have already published 137 articles and racked up over half a million visitors! It has been an amazing reboot of our original website, and we are looking forward to bringing our eclectic mix (rojak) of articles to more readers in 2016!
