Stop the press.... new functionality... SNAP!!

Let me preface this comment by saying I am a TOTAL nerd when it comes to technology. I work for a software company so I get pre-release notes before we release new versions and I pour over them for hours... and get really, really excited about the new functionality. I am not ashamed to admit it, K?

I was perusing some blogs this afternoon and unexpectedly saw some new Blogger functionality- SNAP! You can hover over links to others' blogs on a page and it shows a preview... and it looks like this will also soon work for comments too.

New functionality = happy Tiff

Now, if only Blogger (or one of you) will just tell me how to ALWAYS keep myself signed in- I have to re-sign in each time I start a new browser session. Yes, I have cookies enabled. Yes, I ticked the little box to save my log in. Maybe mine is broken.

OK, and while I am asking for help... can someone please, please pretty pretty with sugar on top please tell me how to program my Garmin to set my mile splits to be recorded so I can look at this later? The splits are all funky right now. I will ship you a Charleston momento for your help, like a magnet from a gas station.

Oh yeah- and one last Tiff thought. Frozen grapes are terrific to snack on!

snap... I saw it n my friend Gordon's blog and stole his idea.
When you hover and the little window pops up, on the bottom left of that window, it says "get free shots". That's where you go. you tell them your website, and some other stuff, and then it gives you some html code to pop into your blog template. there's a PDF with instructions, and provided you follow them, it's simple.

Garmin, i don't know.
Blogger, log out. UGH! i think it annoys everyone who owns a blog.

Awwwwwww.... SNAP!!! I will have to check it out. I consider myself fairly savvy (for a blonde) so I am sure I can crack the code.

Gracias, Miguel.

If it is a garmin x05 series (cannot remember on x01 series), try this:

- Mode button
- Training options
- Auto lap

And for hours and hours of nerdy fun with your blogger template, try HERE or HERE
