Digg words

I was wondering how Digg.com has changed the web, and some words just grew sprouts in my head: diggdel.icio.us : if a site is really that good diggblessed : if your site gets digged by many people digger's moon : a site that has lots of interesting stuff digglet : synonym for bookmark (since diggs are cooler!) diggjedi : person who really knows where to surf diggpissin' : the big, already famous sites that digg their own webpages under false user profiles (e.g. 'Engadget is diggpissin' around, advertising its own stuff'.. 'Oh, that's just diggpiss') diggsqeak : those cute li'l diggs that you know are from folks who have low profile blogs or websites, or have just started out the internet career gravedigged : you write something original on your blog, someone else quotes it on his/her site and gets digged datedigg : when you're digging to impress your geeky girlfriend fishin'diggs : just surfing around green diggs : diggs on ecofriendly issues iDiggs : diggs on Apple's i-brand of things y-digg : diggs on Windows Vista (ha, ha) local diggs : diggs on stuff happening in your area soft diggs : diggs that deserve more fan following diggville : the world of diggs doesn't have to be 'diggsphere' or 'digg-o-sphere', right? Sorry for vanishing yesterday -- hey, a man's allowed to take a day off on his birthday, right? (by the way, if you too were born on Twelfth Night, then you should know Shakespeare wrote a play for the occasion. Here's Wikipedia on the play. The previous link's about the day itself.)

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! I’ll take care of the code.Scroll down the Ed…

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…
