AdSense in Blogger's Post

If you're using new Blogger Layout, you're probably won't have much problem adding AdSense code using Page Element. You can either use AdSense or HTML/JavaScript Page Element, and in seconds, your AdSense will be displayed in your blog.

However, that's not the case if you try to put
AdSense code right into blog's post. The ad won't display. You will only see an invisible ad in your post!

OK. To make it work, what you've to do is to replace <, > and " characters:

  • Replace < with &lt;
  • Replace > with &gt;
  • Replace " with &quot;
Keep in mind that generally, modifying your AdSense code is against AdSense program policies. But in this case the changes are necessary. If you browse through your blog page using View Source, you may not find your AdSense code. That's why the ad didn't display. Hopefully, will do something about this.

The Scams of Blogosphere!

Have you heard about "scammer"? You heard here. A guy recently sent me a love mail, informing me that I've won a lottery worth of £500,000! Here is what he said:

"Dear Winner,

This is to inform you that you have won a prize of(£500,000) FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND GREAT BRITAIN POUNDS STERLINGS for the month of July. 2007"

Interesting. He must be a loser.

"Lottery promotion ,which is organized by YAHOO/MSN LOTTERY INC &
WINDOWS LIVE. congratulate you for being one of the persons selected."

No way. Yahoo and Microsoft are part of this? Lottery?

"PAYMENT OF PRIZE AND CLAIM. You are to contact your Claims Agent on or before your date of Claim,Winners Shall be paid in accordance with his/her Settlement Centre.Yahoo/Msn Lottery Prize must be claimed no later than 15 days from date of Draw Notification after the Draw date in which Prize was won.Any prize not claimed within this period will be forfeited."

Unbelievable! He gave me a dateline.

Then, if I reply the email, I'll get another email from a courier service, asking me to pay some kind of fees, so that he can send the check!

Creepy. Faceless creep.

The guy must be out of ideas. Doesn't he has a decent job to do? Maybe he can start blogging or something!

I'll save my legs for IPhone

IPhone has not landed in Malaysia yet, but Malaysians have shown great enthusiasm last Friday. Harry Potter diehard fans have waited as early as 5.00 am in front of bookstores and hypermarkets to grab the final novel, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Book 7)!

Cool! That's something you don't see everyday.
Imagine what will happen when IPhone arrives? I bet it'll be bigger! The queue will be longer. Fans probably will camp a day earlier. We know what has happened in US.

Man, I'm excited. I've got to get my fitness ready!
