Ramanathan from Techno Park has posted a guide with screenshots for using hidden emoticons in yahoo messenger:

"Emoticons are a great way to express our feelings and moods. Yahoo messenger comes with a default set of emoticons... Many of us do not know that there are many emoticons that are not listed in the default list. Then how do we access it? Again there are two ways. One is to type the character combinations. The other method is the subject of this post, Accessing the hidden emoticons..."

IM Link Tracker is an AIM buddy tracker and AIM profile link track tool that records screen names viewing your profile by tracking clicks on your links.

View screen names clicking your instant messenger profile links such as your online profiles, web journal, blog, photo album and any other links that you have in your AIM profile or away messages. Alternately you can also create a link that brings your buddies to a page that displays all the screen names that have clicked on the link. IM Link Tracker discretely logs screen names, which links were clicked, the date and time of clicks and IP addresses.

Here's how it works:
1: Create a free account.
2: Make a special link that can tracked.
3: Paste the special link in your AIM profile or away message.
4: When your buddies or others click on the link it is recorded and they are either a) taken to a web destination you have specified in the special link such as your web journal or online profile or b) taken to a page that lists all the screen names that have clicked on that link.
5: Sign in and view who has clicked on your links.

*IM Link Tracker works with most AOL Instant Messenger including AIM Triton, version 4.9 for Windows, 4.7 for Mac, GAIM and partially with Trillian.

Twitter is a simple web site with one simple purpose: to let people know what you're doing, and to get an idea of what other people are doing.

You can update Twitter with your status through their web site, or via SMS or IM. If you have Twitter set up with your cell phone, you can receive updates whenever one of your contacts updates their status.

When you send Twitter a mobile text (SMS), it gets sent out to your group of friends and also saves to your Twitter page. Your friends might not have phone alerts turned on so they might check your web page instead. Likewise, you receive your friends mobile updates on your phone.

Thanks to dwergs from Mess.be for reporting this new trojan threat for MSN / Live Messenger:

"Malware going by the name of Msn Live Password Stealer and which does exactly what its name suggests, came on the radar of anti-virus company Sophos earlier this week and was added to their virus database as Troj/Msnfake-M.

Various versions of the password stealer (up until v4) are currently being distributed via Torrents and can very easily be configured, renamed and passed on to victims. When executed, the trojan displays a fake Windows Live Messenger login prompt and any entered username and password is automatically saved into c:\pas.txt (default destination). For the next step, the hacker can decide to show an error message, just terminate the application or terminate it and launch the real client. He can retrieve the stored login details via a pre-set e-mail address.

Sophos already updated their virus definitions files and other anti-virus firms can be expected to follow suit. To protect yourself from this trojan, do not accept and execute suspicious .exe/.bat/.pif/... files. Just to give you an idea, the filesize of this particular trojan is between 1 and 1.5 megabyte."

What is section targeting? Here is the official information on Adsense Help Center:

Section targeting allows you to suggest sections of your text and HTML content that you'd like Adsense to emphasize or downplay when matching ads to your site's content.

To implement section targeting, you'll need to add a set of special HTML comment tags to your code. These tags will mark the beginning and end of whichever section(s) you'd like to emphasize or de-emphasize for ad targeting.

The HTML tags to emphasize a page section take the following format:

<!-- google_ad_section_start -->
Page Content
<!-- google_ad_section_end -->

Now, how can you implement Adsense Section Targeting on New Blogger? I suggest you to use above the code before and after post titles and post content to get relevant ads. You should add the codes above before and after Post Title and Post Content tags. Look for this portions of code and add lines written in red color:

Post Title

<b:includable id='post' var='post'>
<div class='post uncustomized-post-template'>
<a expr:name='data:post.id'/>
<b:if cond='data:post.title'>
<h3 class='post-title'>
<b:if cond='data:post.link'>
<a expr:href='data:post.link'><!-- google_ad_section_start --><data:post.title/><!-- google_ad_section_end --></a>
<b:if cond='data:post.url'>
<a expr:href='data:post.url'><!-- google_ad_section_start --><data:post.title/><!-- google_ad_section_end --></a>
<!-- google_ad_section_start --><data:post.title/><!-- google_ad_section_end -->

Post Content

<div class='post-body'>
<p><!-- google_ad_section_start --><data:post.body/><!-- google_ad_section_end --></p>
<div style='clear: both;'/> <!-- clear for photos floats -->
