Initial Diagnostics:

>> Blogger Employee has associated these errors, as earlier, with Singnet customers in Singapore. We have also heard from people in areas near Singapore, most likely using ISPs who get service through Singnet.

To confirm the latter possibility, provide a TraceRt log, in your next online post, when you ask for assistance.

>> Some Bloggers reporting this have also reported the distorted / unusable dashboard or Post Editor toolbar.

>> As a workaround to the problem, Singnet customers can use a proxy server, "proxy.singnet.com.sg". If your ISP gets service through Singnet, you may have this option. We note that people not getting service directly through Singnet cannot use "proxy.singnet.com.sg".

(Note): This will affect all of your web access through this browser, not just Blogger. If other services are negatively affected by your using the proxy, you'll want to contact Singnet directly. Or you may be able to use a separate browser for Blogging, for a while.

Stats Components Are Significant, In Their Own Context

One popular Stats related accessory, which displays pageview information to the public, is the "Popular Posts" gadget.

Popular Posts identifies from 1 to 10 of the most popular posts in the blog, by comparing Stats pageview counts. Optional parts of the display of each post are a snippet of text, and an ever popular thumbnail photo.

Like many Stats features, blog owners have found imaginative uses for "Popular Posts" - and overlook the limitations of the gadget. Both the dynamic nature of Stats, and the timing of the various pageview count recalculations, create confusion, when Popular Posts is examined.

Free Domain Registration By "UNONIC" Is Fraudulent

Blogger blog owners, like everybody else, like to save money.

Some blog owners prefer to save money when registering a custom domain, for their blogs. We've seen several free domain registration services, providing what is claimed to be a two level Top Level Domain "co.xx" (where "xx" == various country codes).

The latest in this ongoing story appears to be "net.tf" - and 13 other "top level domains".There is also an additional free service offering third-level .tf domains, under the name United Names Organisation. They occupy 14 second-level domains, including .eu.tf, .us.tf, .net.tf, and .edu.tf. They are run by the same company as smartdots.com, and are given away as URL redirections.
