get new layout templates for bloggers from WEBTALKS

I am just a blogger with no funds to invest on domain names and hosting services . Yes , I have to be contented with freebies . No cost , lesser maintenance but lower flexibility . I've been in blogger since 2005 , pity me , I have to deal with monotonous templates just to get along . With some CSS revisions , I managed to do some tweaking with my site . Until recently , because of the bloging craze that has been selling like hot cakes in the office , I wanted to go up further . Theres no harm in trying to make your site easier to navigate , less lengthy on the sidebars and yes , more room for advertisements be it for adsense or for adbrite . I really envy those who created their own blogs from scratch (e.g. Chris , Rod , Ryan), they have all the flexibility at hand .

So I began looking for the most intuitive layout that i could find . Unlike before , my eye for three column blogs have changed , i started liking it . So i begun looking for ways to make my layout use 3 columns . I looked at the HTML file for some clues but i may have been in a hurry to look further . So i consulted Mr. Google again , surely my friend has been intelligent today . Google pointed me to a site that contains downloadable templates for bloggers . These templates can be later uploaded to your own blog site . What caught my attention was it now uses three column layout . Just what I've been looking for .

So for those desperate bloggers out there wanting another layout for their steriotype blogs try visiting WEBTALKS , a site that contains some existing blogger template with 3 column layouts . No more looking at the HTML file or deciphering CSS files , just upload it and the rest is magic . Just a caution though , when changing templates , backup whatever widgets you ave added to your blog , the change in template will erase most of them.

renaming default namespaces for VSTO projects in VS2008

So here is the scenario , you are starting a VSTO project and decided that your default namespace is ExcelAddInTesterApp . You created the project and started coding the project. After several days , your boss called and said "hey marvin , make use of this namespace OurCompany.ExcelAddInTesterApp , we have to add our company name to it got it?" . You get back to your machine thinking its just a simple property just like any project you've been working on. So you right clicked the VSTO project and hit properties . Boom! What the F@#$? The default namespace textbox is disabled!!!!



I've been through this and I googled for ways to do it and ended up with a blog from a Microsoft MVP telling me it can't be done because it is disabled. Then I thought of Refactoring, the beauty and grandeur of the renaming process. I selected the namespace and hit the refactor menu hoping that this would solve the problem . Unfortunately , it did not rather it displayed the message box …

Farewell NU107.5

As I write this blog,  millions of Filipino rock fanatics may have already known what happens after 12:00 midnight tonight. The only surviving station that caters to the rock genre will, sadly, be closing down and permanently signing off tonight. The news came to late to enjoy every second of what is left.  The sad news came to me the last week of October.  Being a follower of the station, I never believed it at first. But online resources would say the station really is nearing its demise.  With several minutes to go, it will be dead air.
