New Look

When it comes to gadgets, most of us just use the bare minimum functions. We may have an entire gizmo of A to Z functions at our disposal but we're usually content with using the ABCs only.

So it is with the Nedstat statistics counter. Usually I just zero in on the page views. This morning, I saw the pull-down menus on top which somehow have escaped my notice. There was a "With What" function and when I clicked on it, I saw that more than 80% of visitors used the Internet Explorer. Yikes.

In my earlier template, the one with the orange header, there was some html kinks which I couldn't figure out. This resulted in the sidebar fonts appearing unusually big when the blog was opened with the Internet Explorer. Surprisingly, if it was viewed with Mozilla Firebox and Netscape, the fonts were okay.

If Red Riding Hood were here, she'd say, "Lydia, what big fonts your blog has." I don't want to tell her, "All the better for you to read with, my dear," because that'll be a lie. So the best thing to do is to change my blog template. I like the new look because it's more streamlined and neater. And the kink is gone!

Ailin, who's Anuar? He hasn't been here before, has he? You knowlah, this is a new house, still undergoing renovation here and there, so things are bound to change somewhat.

This simple trait of wanting to use the bare minimum fo functions of any gadgets are unique to the XX gender. I for instance just prefer to routinely stick to simple buttons with simple instructions day in and out rather than face complicated digital mumbo jumbo :))

If I could find the time, I'd like to try out all these functions, but haven't had the chance yet. So for now, just the bare minimum will have to do. There's also the "What if I mess up?" apprehension ...

Dr, Queen, KT : Looks like we're not only of gender XX but also of generation BB. My washing machine has so many settings, something like 100 different type of combinations but I only use one!

Anuar is my baby sister's friend from tadika. Lives now in Espanyola. He's kinda like a winter breeze, passes through hard, but you never know he's there!
