You’re probably wondering what Atma Xplorer is, what’s it about and why the hell did I choose a weird and convoluted name for this blog. I’ll try to answer that below.
Atma Xplorer is a blog owned and operated by sylv3rblade (some guy named Stephen). Who am I? I’m a web developer (
primarily Java but I’m migrating to rails full-time rails developer, part-time android dev), novice photographer, casual gamer (consoles, PC, handhelds) and a certified geek. It’s where I put gaming, photography and fanboy-ism related stuff while I’m working some side projects to actually put them in. It’s not a personal blog (I’m still deciding if I should get one for that but I probably will) so I try to steer away from posting something too personal. It’s about Games, Computing, Photography after all.

What is Atma Xplorer about?
Xploring Games, Computing, Photography. Although I rarely stick to those niches since it’s really pressing to write stuff that’s constrained :(.
Atma Xplorer is about experiences associated with those three ideas in mind although admittedly, lately it’s been just games, games and more games :D. I’m still working on the discipline required for blogging so please bear with me for the moment. If you want me to feature something though, you can send me a holler.
Why Atma Xplorer?
The word Atma has been associated with many popular video games like the Final Fantasy series without being given meaning. Atma is a hindu (no I don’t speak hindu) word that means life. If you couple that with Xplorer (sans the e from explorer) you get “Exploring Yourself” which is basically what the Atma Xplorer is all about.
Sure I could’ve gone with the popular trend and attached Pinoy to Xplorer but having PinoyXplorer as the domain name for what the site is now seems quite odd doesn’t it?
