FAQ


Some doubts and questions my friends and others asked about this site and my answers to them...

1. What's the purpose of this website ?

Well, the reason I started this website was to document my projects and experiments for personal use and also to share with others. Sometimes I forget what I've done to complete a project or how I found solutions to some specific problems I've come across along the way. So recording or documenting such things helps me to look back and understand how I dealt with a problem and recall everything I did, if I ever forget it. And also I want to help others as I can and give something back to the community and I like to be open source :)


2. What does it cost to maintain this website ?

This site is powered by "Google Sites", that means the pages are hosted by Google and I edit them online. But the downside is that Google only provides a very limited amount of storage space (100 MB) for Sites and I can not use Google Drive either. So I store all files on my paid hosting server and I have to renew my domains every year or two. That's what it costs.


3. What inspired you to create this site ?

I created this site having inspired by Kerry D Wong's personal tech blog.


4. How long did it take to create your site and publish it ?

It took me about a year and half to configure everything and upload all my contents. But it's only because I had to prepare every content before I can upload them and I spent only a little time for that per day. This site was published on 6:06 PM IST 22-05-2016, Sunday.


5. How is your name or the website name pronounced as ?

It's pronounced as "Vishnu" "Em" "A.I.E.A" - Vishnu M Aiea


6. What does this "AIEA" stand for ?

It's an acronym for "An International Environmental Association", a hypothetical, never existed organization I created when I was in high school.


7. Have you monetized your website ?

I haven't monetized my website and I do not make any revenue from it.
