Iron Man movie: first review

What's it about: Are you kidding me? Just follow the link if you're interested. Click here for a trailer.

Comments: If you haven't heard, the latest superhero to grace the silver screen is Marvel's Iron Man. Now I never really was a big fan of the Iron Man comic books, but the movie reportedly has some smashing special effects. I'm cool with that. This is also the first movie totally funded by Marvel.

More details: Strong points of the movie includes Robert Downey Jr.'s acting (that's him in the picture; looks kinda funny, doesn't he?), special effects (not just the explosions, and particularly Downey Jr. getting used to his suit), and a nice storyline that allows room for character development and witty dialogue. You also have Gwyneth Paltrow making a comeback after four years (her character's name is Pepper Potts... another one of Stan Lee's amazing alliterations, à la Peter Parker and Bruce Banner). Everyone's saying it's a sure blockbuster. And yes, the Black Sabbath song 'Iron Man' does play at the conclusion.

Here's the link again.

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…
