Google busts my bubble...

Visitors to my photo blog might have noticed the nice little addon I put on every post - the little map of the place where I took the picture. Making it possible was tough. I had to hack html, javascript and the maps API together to ensure that each post could have its own little map and they would coexist. I was proud of this little thing that I considered to be unique to my little blog. But now, my blog's uniqueness is threatened. Now, any average Jo can do it.

<sarcasm>Thank you very much Google!</sarcasm>

Another Blogger tip

I have always wondered how many people were subscribed to my blog. Blogger has the feed option but it does not tell you anything about subscribers. Feedburner does but the problem is you have to burn your feed into a feedburner one and feedburner would give you stats on those who subscribe to the newly created feed.
Till recently, I had no way of knowing whether this blog was being regularly read by people or not (though I have had quite a number of people tell me that they read my blog and I have been plesantly surprised to know that :). As the beginning of the previous line suggests, I have been able to find a way get stats on the number of subscribers. I was messing around with my feed settings in blogger (my feed subscribers may have noticed those changes) and I found that blogger has introduced a new feature called feed redirect. I put in my feedburner feed in that box and overnight, I knew the number of subscribers to this blog...
If you want to exploit this feature, you can follow the steps in this tutorial.

The suspense is over..

Materazzi finally reveals what he said.

Quite frankly, I prefer the suspense that was your silence..

Well, he wasn't really silent. He did release a book after the world cup with all possible things he said to Zidane. :)

Is there a way I can strangle an irritating software?


Can you tell me what this is? It is fairly obvious but it still took me a few seconds for it to sink in... What is the world coming to...
