Blogger woes (read this blog in Firefox)

New feature: please sign up for my posts, by subscribing via email or feeds (click on a post or this article header if you can't see it). It's pretty simple, and you get all the stuff downloaded right into your inbox or feed reader.

I'm really getting put off by Blogger. Ever since I've started this blog, I noticed that you often have to hit the refresh button several times to display images properly (you can only see the CSS border but not the image itself). But what's happening right now takes the cake.
Update (January 20, 10.54 pm PST): All thanks to Tom from the Blogger Help group for the steps I needed to fix this blog. Hopefully it should look okay now.

I'm really getting put off by Blogger. Ever since I've started this blog, I noticed that you often have to hit the refresh button several times to display images properly (you can only see the CSS border but not the image itself).

What's happening right now takes the cake: you can't see the sidebar on the right of this blog in Internet Explorer or Opera (it reappears when you click on a post). I haven't made any major changes in the sidebar of late except adding widgets (which I've now removed), so any reasoning escapes me. I'm completely befuddled. If you're reading this, please view in Mozilla Firefox.

How to get rid of the Blogger navbar

There's hardly a Blogger user to be found who hasn't been irked by the navbar. True, it’s not entirely useless – it lets you quickly log on to Blogger and provides a quick customization link. But by just being there the navbar brings a generic look to your blog, which is enough to make readers not take it seriously. On top of that, the navbar allows any Blogger user to flag your blog! (Which, assuming you’re one of the good guys, puts you at the mercy of the goodwill of your diverse readership.)Therefore it’s imperative that you hide your Blogger navbar, or at least know how to. In case you’re wondering, the Blogger Terms of Service doesn’t say anything about the navbar, so you’re good to go.Hiding the Blogger navbar1. Sign in to your Blogger account. This will take you to your Dashboard. Click on the Layout link of your blog.2. Click on the Edit HTML link on the Layout page. Don’t worry, you don’t have to know anything about HTML!

Miscellaneous security software (part 1)

This is part 9 in my Optimizing Broadband|Windows|Firefox series and part 1 of my reviews of miscellaneous security software. Covers anti-spyware, anti-adware, registry cleaners, junk file cleaners, and install monitors.The following aren't really reviews, but should provide you with everything you need to know.

Anti-spyware and anti-adware reviews
Most antivirus applications today come with built-in anti-spywares, so unless you're suspicious something is wrong with your PC you don't need to worry. However, it would be a good idea to install a third-party anti-spyware and anti-adware once in a while to make sure everything's under control. The chief anti-spyware and anti-adware brands are Windows Defender (from Microsoft), Ad-Aware 2007 Free (Lavasoft), AVG Anti-Spyware Free Edition (Grisoft) and Spybot S&D (Safer Networking). Note that I haven't mentioned any paid software, such as the popular Spy Sweeper (Webroot Software). It hardly makes any sense to spend m…
