Google Homepage and Spotify!

Hello!! πŸ™‚

I read on Google Blog a few days ago that you can change the look of your Google Homepage! πŸ˜€ Woooot!

You can choose from many different images, and no more white background when searching with Google!

Lookie at mine! Isn’t it beauuuutiful? ❀ ❀

To change yours as well, go to Google.com and at the lower left-hand corner, there should be a link to change the background image. πŸ™‚ Then simply choose!

I didn’t really look at the options, as soon as I saw this, I “grabbed” it. πŸ˜€ So maybe later I’ll find out that there’s another one I like more. xD But I am satisfied with this one now. πŸ™‚

Have I mentioned that I have Spotify? πŸ˜€

Oh yes! And I like it a lot! πŸ™‚Β  πŸ™‚

(What is it you say? You don’t know?? πŸ˜› It’s a service/program that you download on your computer, and you can listen to songs that you like for free, as many times as you want, at any place/time that you want them! So, you are at work, and want to listen to music? No problem! πŸ˜€ (It doesn’t install, so it even works on office computers). You are at a friend’s house/party and want to play songs you like and show to your friends? No problem! :D)

It’s great that you can find many different songs even when you are not home and don’t have your PC or HDD with you (e.g. at work or at a friend’s house), and you can also share your playlists with friends! πŸ™‚

If you live in Sweden, Spain, Norway, Finland (including the Γ…land Islands), France, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom, then you can have it totally for free! πŸ˜€

Or else you can get Spotify Open, that anybody from other countries can have it and listen to, but it’s limited to 20 hours of listening per month. As far as I know, you can listen to your local files unlimited times even with Spotify Open.

When you pay and get Spotify Premium, then you can have it on your mobile phone and in offline mode, which means that you can listen to songs even when it’s not connected to the internet and you can have it at a picnic (unless you bring your laptop to the picnic! πŸ˜› ) !

Do you have an account with Spotify?

If you do, let’s share playlists!!

My username there is, of course, drusillah.

So, to find me:

In the Search Box (upper left-hand corner in Spotify), type:

spotify:user:[insert-username-without-these-brackets]

and we can add each other to the friend list and share songs! πŸ˜€ Woot woot!

Ratings and Personas

Heippa! πŸ˜›

Some days ago (I don’t remember how many, maybe it was even a week) I put a flag counter on the right side, just out of curiosity of where people come from. πŸ™‚

Just now I also put a ratings bar under each post, but I am not sure yet if it’s a good idea…. I am just afraid of posts being rated as “very poor” for example, and then my whatever-confidence I’d had for posting it would waver. Well but anyway, it shouldn’t be a big deal… Even if someone does it, it doesn’t mean something about my personality. Right? πŸ˜›

I also discovered these “Personas for Firefox”. I don’t think they are THAT great, but I am trying it for a bit to see how it works out. But at the moment I can’t see any url at the address bar, it’s white text on white background. πŸ˜›

Developing new things for Firefox is nice, but changing the image behind the tabs isn’t such a big deal. The whole skin should change I think, not just a thin strip of a background. (Oh, I just noticed that it’s a bit on the bottom as well).

Right now I would rate my own post as average. πŸ˜› But it’s because I don’t have something to say at the moment. Twice I thought of something during the night and thought I should write it here, but now it eludes my memory.

One thing I like about people who keep their word… is that they say “let’s meet” and they actually call you to meet. They mean what they say, and so you know to take what they say seriously. Not like people who say and say, “we should go out sometime!” and then nothing. Or is it a ball game? Oh, you threw the first ball by suggesting it, and now the ball is in my field, and I have to actually call you? Well, when one suggests something, it means they want it. So, go out and get what you want. Don’t wait for the other person with the “ball in their field”. These games are most of the time ridiculous.

1,010 visits !

1,010 visits from good friends, family, internet friends, strangers, lurkers, spammers…

I thank you all very much! πŸ˜€

For clicking the link that lead you here, for reading patiently what I have pondered and mulled over and sat down to write…

For taking the time to comment and leave your own thoughts and ideas, and letting me know you are there! πŸ™‚

1010 … Or is it in binary?? Only 10 visits so far? O_O πŸ˜›

I know, it’s not like I had 100,000 visits, or 1 million …. πŸ˜› That would be something to truly celebrate about. But 1000 is also a good number! πŸ™‚

Spammer’s Hall of Fame

Hello hello! πŸ™‚

I got this idea from StarHedgeHog‘s “A Letter to my Spammers”, and so I thought I would post also my spammers’ voices and expose them! πŸ˜€

By WP Themes : “Good fill someone in on and this enter helped me alot in my college assignement. Thanks you for your information.”

By Watch Movies : “Like this post!Found this website on google.I will be coming back here for sure :D

By Burton Haynes : Oh jesus you will not belief that. Our mindless kitty just farted on my leg!? I mean what is the matter with this!? I feed this thing and I get this in return. I even now can not really belief this. After all, you’ve got some interesting info there in your post. I knew Yahoo will take me to some interesting stuff today :) . Okay must hunt that animal now! Have a nice time you all!”

By Hungover Guy : “As much as I can understand right now, I think you’re right!”

By Ahmed Pedrosa : ” Someone dropped a link to your blog on Twitter and that’s where I first found your site. I truly love the stuff I’ve read on your blog and plan to keep reading when I find more time. Do you have a Twitter account? I love the way you write and I’m going to subscribe to read more whenever I can.”

First of all, WP didn’t inform me of any link dropped on Twitter, second his URL is weird. But I wish it were real. 😦

By teeth wihtening products : “Well spoken. I have to research more on this as it is really vital infoοΏ½”

By Charlsie Zaren : “Hieverybody . First,allow me to say, great page . I loved reading your post.Thought I’d tell you, I voted your blog up on delicious . Have a good one”

Damn, same here. It doesn’t look like spam. But this comment can be applied to any blog post, so … And WP didn’t tell me of anything od delicious …

I had a few more, but I had deleted them.

Medieval Torture Devices

There are no hello’s this time. No comments to be said, only facts to be read.

I was reading this article, of torturing devices in the medieval times.

I think half the time I was moaning and groaning from the atrocity. Of course I have heard of most of them before… But reading about them in detail, engaging yourself in the happenings and possibly placing yourself at those times… Or even trying to imagine how it could feel… Unimaginable. The Iron Maiden?! Mercy. 😦 Or the Pear Anguish or Breast Ripper? I had never heard of the latter one before. I wouldn’t call those torture devices. Torturing is to cause pain in order to extract information. Not to have the victim slowly die of excruciating pain and anguish. Those are fatal devices. :/

On a brighter note (article), here are 5 innovations that won the Edison award πŸ™‚ The i-Limb Hand sounds remarkable… What science can do… Just like anything else, science can be used for miracles, and can be used for destruction and death. Just as a simple knife.

I believe I did quite well on my exam today! πŸ˜€ Woot!! Hopefully I am not too far off. πŸ˜›

I remembered “The Battle” from the Narnia soundtrack, and it’s really a beautiful song. So, I will end this with this musical note that ignites the imagination and sparks fire into souls !Β  Hats off to Harry Gregson-Williams! πŸ˜€

Have Yourself, a Merry Little Christmas …

Happy Holidays! πŸ˜€

Merry Christmas!!!!! πŸ˜€

I wish you all a very, very merry day, with lots of food, drinking (not necessarily alcoholic drinks), good friends, joy and happiness! πŸ™‚ And health, let’s not forget the most important of all.

Don’t worry, I am not sitting in front of my computer on Christmas Day, this is a post written earlier and made to be published on December 25th. A very nice feature of WordPress, I must say! =) πŸ˜‰

A Christmas song to share with you, to have joy together in the festiveness of Christmas, even if we are far apart!

A relaxing and very nice song, in my opinion … =)

I like these following parts of the lyrics ..

Have yourself a merry little Christmas,
Let your heart be light
From now on,
our troubles will be out of sight

….

Through the years
We all will be together,
If the Fates allow
Hang a shining star upon the highest bough.
And have yourself A merry little Christmas now.

Have a wonderful day!!! May love and happy times shine upon you! May your heart be light…

Merry Christmas!

Knowledge shared, is joy doubled

Hello, hello! πŸ˜‰

Are you getting ready for Christmas? What will you do for Christmas Eve and Christmas? πŸ™‚ What is the tradition in your country? Do you follow the country’s tradition, or do you create your own?

Woo, many questions today. xD πŸ˜›

Personally, I love Christmas time because of the happy feelings, the merry people anticipating the holidays, and the festive music and events everywhere. ^_^ A time to meet with your good friends and spend time with them… (And family of course). The whole year is a time to spend with friends and family, but during Christmas there is an excuse. xD ;P

Like the post says, knowledge shared is joy doubled, I will post a few things that I think are very interesting and I would like to share with you. πŸ™‚
