Two weeks ago, Microsoft announced that Service Pack 1 is complete, and yesterday SP1 got available for everyone to download.
Mainly SP1 includes all the updates, fixes and security updates that have been available from Windows Update.
There is however a few new minor things.

Service Pack 1 is available to Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2.
You can download it through Windows Update, and the size varies between 40~ and 540~ MB, according to the website.

You can also download the .iso file for offline installation here, or from direct-link here.
The size for offline installation is 1953 MB.

You may also download the .exe-files, instead of downloading the image file and burn it to an DVD.

Gmail Update - Support for 12 new file formats

Recently Googles Gmail-Team updated their webbased mail client (gmail).
You can now see 12 new file formats from your gmail with out having to install any software on your computer, like you normally would.

The new file formats is
  • Microsoft Excel (.XLS and .XLSX)
  • Microsoft PowerPoint 2007 / 2010 (.PPTX)
  • Apple Pages (.PAGES)
  • Adobe Illustrator (.AI)
  • Adobe Photoshop (.PSD)
  • Autodesk AutoCad (.DXF)
  • Scalable Vector Graphics (.SVG)
  • PostScript (.EPS, .PS)
  • TrueType (.TTF)
  • XML Paper Specification (.XPS)
 So now, if anyone send you a Photoshop file (.PSD), you can watch it from your gmail account with out having to open it up in Photoshop.

There is however some minor issues with the Microsoft Excel (.XLS \ .XLSX), but those bugs will most likely be fixed very soon.

You don't have to do anything to get these updates, as they are already ready for use!

[How To] Add shadow too the title of your posts on

In this HowTo i will try to explain how you can add shadows too the title of your blogposts.
Why do you want this? Well, it just makes your blogg look better (deppending on your template, of course).

Note: This only works if your browser have CSS3 compatbility, if you don't, the text will just look normal with out shadows!

If you see the difference between the two lines below, then your browser should support CSS3 good enough!

This is a test!
This is a test!

Do you see the difference? If not, heres a screenshot on how it should look like:

Now, lets begin.
First, go to your settings -> Design -> Edit HTML
Search for "</style>" (Press CTRL+F to open the searchfield on most browsers).
And before the </style>-tag, type this in:

h3#post-title {
 text-shadow: 1px 1px 1px #2a2b2b
After you're done, you can first click "Preview" to see if it works. If it works, hit the "Save Template"-button, and you're done!

You can, if you want change the values to experiement the look of the shadows. the #2a2b2b is the color-value and the other is the size, length etc of the shadow.

[How To] Remove NavigationBar on

I just wanted to share a small trick, if you want to remove the Navigation Bar on
 Note: You should always take a backup of your template before you edit things.

First, go into your settings menu, and then go to Design > Edit HTML
Go down to the HTML code and search for "</style>" (CTRL+F to open up Searchbar on some browsers).
Before the </style>, add this piece of code:
body {
position: relative;
top: -32px;

Basically what this piece of code does is moving the whole page up 32 pixels so the menu doesnt appear on top.
And the navigationbar happends to be 32pix height.

Another method is to just hide the menu, without moving the page up 32 pixels.
To do that, you can add this piece of code before the </style>-tag:
#navbar-iframe {

When you're done, hit the "Save Template" button!
