  • Update to the Blogger Tag Cloud

    A small PSE (Public Service Announcement): if you were using the Blogger Tag Cloud I’ve put together based on the WP-Cumulus plugin, you might have noticed that it stopped working some time ago (I’m not entirely sure when, since I didn’t notice it, until a reader commented and brought it to my attention – thanks […]

  • Pulling a Hanselman

    User interface / interaction design 101: if you want something, the least you can do is to ask for it. So I decided to take a page out of Scot Hanselman’s book (a blog worth reading BTW if you are interested in programming – it has an emphasis on Microsoft specific technologies, but other topics […]

  • Tried to review RocketPost…

    A reader of mine asked about my opinions about RocketPost, so I thought I’ll give it a try. Their interface seemed alright and there were some interesting features showcased in the tour. An other thing I’ve liked is that they offer a free version with no restrictions, other than the number of blogs limited to […]

  • Blogger tag cloud

    Some time ago I experimented with the Cumulus plugin for Blogger, but concluded that I had so many tags (probably a sign of ADD :-)) that the only thing it did, was to transform your computer into a heater, by keeping the processor at 100%. So, I created a Yahoo Pipe which extracts the top […]

The problem was that Blogger was displaying older entries, even though I tried a bunch of different things to convince it that the element were new (like setting the date, adding […]

  • Making sure that your favicon works with Blogger

    My favicon stopped showing up some time ago on my blogger page, but until now I was just too lazy to investigate. Turns out that blogger adds the following line in the header: <link href=’’ rel=’icon’ type=’image/’/> Which overrides my favicon setting. The solution? Put your favicon declaration after the following line in your template: […]

  • Creating your own top commenters widget for blogger

    Some time ago I added a top commenter widget to the blog, based on a tip from Blogger Buster. However it started acting up, so I decided to roll my own using Yahoo Pipes!. Below you will find a short tutorial on how to do it, as well as the ready-made pipe, based on the […]

  • Pimping my blog

    I’ve re-arranged my blog a little for it to be more usable (for both of my regular readers :-)). Here are some things I’ve done: Added my logo in the header Redirected the autodiscovery feeds through Feedburner. This should give a more accurate readership number (fortunately users don’t have to do anything for this to […]
