This is a sample blog posting.

If you log in to the site (the Author Login link is on the very bottom of this page) you will be able to edit it and all of the other existing articles. You will also be able to create a new article and make other changes to the site.

As you add and modify articles you will see how your site changes and also how you can customise it in various ways.

Go ahead, you can't break it.

Your site has some commonly used modules already preconfigured. These include:

  • Image Module which holds the image beneath the menu. This is a Custom module that you can edit to change the image.
  • Most Read Posts which lists articles based on the number of times they have been read.
  • Older Articles which lists out articles by month.
  • Syndicate which allows your readers to read your posts in a news reader.
  • Popular Tags, which will appear if you use tagging on your articles. Just enter a tag in the Tags field when editing.

Each of these modules has many options which you can experiment with in the Module Manager in your site Administrator. Moving your mouse over a module and clicking on the edit icon will take you to an edit screen for that module. Always be sure to save and close any module you edit.

Joomla! also includes many other modules you can incorporate in your site. As you develop your site you may want to add more module that you can find at the Joomla Extensions Directory.

Templates control the look and feel of your website.

This blog is installed with the Protostar template.

You can edit the options by clicking on the Working on Your Site, Template Settings link in the top menu (visible when you login).

For example you can change the site background color, highlights color, site title, site description and title font used.

More options are available in the site administrator. You may also install a new template using the extension manager.

New Chinese Supercomputer Nr. 1

The current list of 500 fastest supercomputers in the world shows for the first time two Chinese supercomputers on the two top spots - number 2 is the already well known Tianhe-2 Supercomputer using Intel processors and accelerator. But the new number 1 system is the Taihu Supercomputer, which solely uses Chinese processor technology, reaches 125 Pflop/s with more than ten million cores, and puts a considerable distance in performance to the still fastest US supercomputer. See this link for the news on Taihu, and this link on the top 500 list.
