Freeware for blogging

I did not test it or downloaded it yet but it does seem to be a good freeware. You may download it and get the release notes here.


A Google puzzle answered – sort of.

Google posted this on its blog. Why do they always seem to know how to make people feel like they’re a simple company! Anyway you can find the answer by connecting to the website hyperlinked to at the end of this post.

As a little bonus for my fellow employees who were around during the winter, I held a little on-campus contest. I took 130 photographs of things around the buildings and challenged people to identify them and go to the location, where they’d then have to find a little hidden sticker with a letter on it. They’d email the letter to me to confirm that they found the location. I thought our blog readers might find it interesting to identify what’s in these photographs, which were some of the more challenging pictures.

It’s just a GIF image

I thought it was a GIF animation and I am proved correct! All bloggers who have their blogs hosted on Blogger know what I’m talking about. THIS!

It’s just funny

It’s real fun. I can’t explain but you have to try it.

How to read our Mauritian blogs?

I always knew there was a way for one to be able to search for other bloggers of the same nationality as one’s on Blogger. Why? Sometimes, a Mauritian just pops up and comments on my blog like for my previous post. Then by mistake, I discovered the link to the Mauritian directory of blogs hosted by Blogger! You might just want to have a look at it.

everybody is doing this…

I’ll do it as well,

Grab the book nearest to you, turn to page 18, find line 4. Write down what it says.
