Secure your Gmail Account

Gmail In the unfortunate event that you are unable to access your Gmail account even though you think you typed the password correctly (Yes, it can happen.Some malicious virus/hack could mess things up or you just plain forgot the password),Gmail offers to email the password to the secondary email address you have given.

If you haven't already, In Gmail go to Settings -> Account -> Change Security Question ->
Secondary email:

Enter your alternate email address & Save.

You may think this is trivial, but you'll be glad you have done this if there's some problem in the future.

Day of Errors at Blogspot

Today is certainly a day of errors at blogger - 3 different errors within a few hours that left various blogspot pages inaccessible (including this one).

Of the three, " bX-vjhbsj" error is the new one that absolutely prevented loading any page from my blogspot domain just after publishing.Thankfully the people at blogger have fixed it now.

Second Life to get a Swedish Embassy?

Its hard not to have come across the term 'Second Life' (SL)on the internet of late.Its suppose to be a virtual world which mimics real world with community,places etc but its not exactly a game - there are no points,winners or levels.

This virtual world has become so prominent that many real world companies have a presence in the virtual world - recently there was even a Vista launch on party in SL.

And now,Sweden is supposedly to open a embassy in SL so that they can provide info about their country & help people in SL -

May be I should try it someday just to see what's inside!
