One last thing to do is to
PS: also copied back the performancing metrics scripts back to footer.php and Google Adsense and Amazon affiliate scripts to index.php
However if your PC/notebook is tight on resources and you like to open many tabs on your firefox then Netvibes is still a bit heavy.
I have justed installed a firefox extension Sage and it looks very stable and promising. The good thing about it is that it doesn't eat your memory until you use it. In terms of speed it's on par with Alesti.

Our email service currently sends updates around 5am CST, so you should have had email distributed on your behalf this morning, some time after you sent in the original inquiry below.
Also, direct subscription list management is not currently available through the site, but we can send you a copy of your subscription list on demand.
A few people have written about this new service such as Techcrunch and Read/WriteWeb and I got the impression that I could manage subscriber list from my account?

I have also done a survey, which isn't complete yet, on blogging tools/plaform/engines.
Feedburner now offers email subscription service. Feedburner has been very reliable and its services are mostly free. I'm trying this new service out now at this blog.
Traditional blogger would use plugin to provide email subscription.

Netvibes has major improvement lately on the UI such as catching up on Pageflakes offering customizable tabs. They call this Netvibes "anise" version, more details on their blog here.
Alesti is very good in many respects but they have some problems lately including server crashes and occasional flashing of display which requires shuting down and restarting.
The new Netvibes is not without problem as I can see memory leak of Firefox is still preventing me from using it. It's OK to view Netvibes in Opera.

A stent is a wire mesh tube used to prop open an artery. Angioplasty is the act of putting the stent into an artery. Apparently Stent is pretty expensive. More information from here.
My father just suffered a mild heart attack and will have to put in few stents, he's 83.

When you add link in WordPress you'll be having the site name or IP where the WP is installed as the prefix, i.e. href=IP_of_the_PC/blah/blab/something_else.pdf This is a problem when you want to link to resources elsewhere in the intranet (windows network). The workaround appears to be using href=file:\\ip_of_another_server\blah\blah\something_else.pdf.....!
Firefox doesn't trust automatically resources in intranet and will not allow "file:\\" protocol. The above link works OK under IE but not FF.
There are few things you could do with FF. Found a solution here in Peter's Blog to change the "security.checkloadurl" default setting to false. There is also a suggestion here to include trusted intranet locations in "network.negotiate-auth.trusted-uris". I have tried all that but still doesn't work on my FF version 220.127.116.11
Concluding, I can use any of the below to link to another PC or server in intranet
I'll give up for now and use IE instead for intranet sites.

If my guess is right then I will not like it. I actually like how Hemingway theme does it, i.e. you can build your own "blocks" then pull them or remove them from your bottombar or sidebar. I prefer the freedom of building the blocks I want.
I like the Hemingway theme very much and have spent far amount of time playing with the CSS there at my other site Papierlos.
