Your Facebook username must meet these criteria

  • You can only choose a single username for your profile and for each of the Pages that you administer.
  • Your username must be at least five characters in length and only include alphanumeric characters (A-Z, 0-9), or a period or full stop (".")

Can't Open My Blog On Internet Explorer

For Past month I have faced some problems with my technology blog to get it open on the Internet explorer web browser. When I tried to open it using Internet explorer it gave me an "Operation Aborted" error. I couldn't open it. But I was able to open my other blog in the internet explorer without any problem and also for other web browsers like Firefox or chrome don’t seem to have this problem. Because this is becoming a frustration for my readers who uses internet explorer as their web browser I decided to search about it.

I have read many web sites and blogs and finally found some answers for it. This problem mainly caused by Followers Gadget or may be because of a third party Java Script. For my case it was the Followers gadget.

Since this issue was not fixed yet the only option is to remove the Followers gadget from your blog and if it didn't solve the problem try to remove other third party Java scripts you added to your blog.

I know this is not an easy thing to do. Removing certain things might impact the appearance of your blog badly. But for the time been this is our only hope. If you really wish to keep the Followers gadget try to put it in as low as possible position on your side bars. It fixed the problem for my other blog. I'm trying to do the same on this blog also.

You can find more information about this problem and any other problems you have with Blogger from this blog

Google Chrome 2

If you are tired with your current web browsers, Try newly released Google Chrome version 2. It's been a beta test for this since March and now they have released the final version of it. It's super fast and stable also they have fixed lot of problems that came with the first release. From the speed it's only one step behind on Apple Safari web browser. That means it has beaten the Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft Internet Explorer.

So, How to install it on your computer ? Probably you are having a older version of Chrome running on your computer. If you have it open the browser and go to tools button on the browser then press About Google Chrome option. It will open up a window and in there down at the bottom you'll find a update now button. If you are new to Google Chrome please go to this website and download it to your computer. Follow this video if you have difficulties following my steps.

Is it time to upgrade your PC ?

Computer technology is changing very quickly. New Hardware parts releasing very fast and even the Software is also changing very fast. So if you want to keep up with the phase you need to upgrade your computer more often. But if you are on a very tight budget this is not possible. But if you like to play newer computer games and like to use newer versions of software you'll definitely have to have a good hardware on your computer. Because not everyone is good at computer hardware knowledge they usually buy a new one. For my point of view this is wasting money. But in some cases you have to throw away your PC and have to buy an new one. For example, I'm still using a old Pentium 4 computer with DDR1 Rams and AGP Video card. So in my case there will be no upgrade. I have to buy or assemble (Which I always do) a new one because the technology changed so much that i can't use my old parts anymore. So, how will you decide when to upgrade your PC ?

If you are not in to Gaming or any other computer related professional work actually there is a very less chance that you want to upgrade your existing PC. If you are using it to surf the internet, listening to music or to word processing surely you want have to upgrade it. But one disadvantage of using a older system is if you want to replace a hardware part on it it will be really difficult or may be the price for that part may be too high.
