Profile Improvement - "Show astrological signs" Checkbox

For months, we notice one odd forum topic, coming up, seemingly, every week.
I know that I can turn off the astrological references (by not including my date of birth) but I find it very irritating that it is the default for everyone here.
or
For those of us born between November 30 and December 17, the sun actually passes through Ophiuchus, and while much astrology doesn't acknowledge this fact, those of us born under the sign are acutely aware of the differences.
or
I was born on Nov. 22 1972, i.e. on the cusp - between two sun signs, so I would like for the astrological sign in my profile to show two sun signs.


For the latter two complaints, there's still no solution. You can't pick your astrological sign, it's a function of the birthday information. But now, you can at least disable yours from showing, even if you enter your birthday information.

And, if you're accustomed to seeing yours, and you're distraught that it's missing, now you know why.

That's a start, anyway.

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.

Help! I Can't See My Blog!

I just posted to my blog, so I know that it's there. I can tell others are looking at it. But I can't see it.

Well, the good news is you don't have a blog hijack or other calamity. Your blog is not gone.

Apparently, some ISPs are blocking *.blogspot.com, or maybe have network configuration or infrastructure problems. You can access Blogger.com or you can access Blogspot.com, but you can't access nitecruzr.blogspot.com, or bloggerstatusforreal.blogspot.com.

You can't access them directly, that is. If you can access any free, anonymous proxy servers, though, you may be able to access your blog.

Note: You can use PKBlogs with the URL pre packaged. Here is the address of this post (with gratuitous line breaks to prevent the old post sidebar alignment problem):
http://www.pkblogs.com/bloggerstatusforreal.blogspot.com/

And an additional URL, to provide to those suffering from this problem, would be the WordPress version of this post:
