Prof. Jayanth R. Varma’s Financial Markets Blog

I am in the process of setting up my blog using
Blosxom. Why Blosxom?

  1. It is open source so that I can use and customize it the way I like
  2. It does not use MySql or PHP. So I do not have to go to my web administrator

    easy enough to understand and modify. But, a large number of plugins are available to
    add whatever functionality is desired. This site uses the following plugins:
