New Blogger ate my blog post

I had written a blog about Ubuntu's decline and posted it about 8 hours ago. I wanted to edit it to put some lines in unordered list format. I selected the lines and clicked on the bullet button and it took an additional line under the bullet format. So I pressed Ctrl+Z to undo it. However, to my surprise, the whole blog post was deleted. The contents are gone and not recoverable any more. I also checked Google cache; but it was not there obviously as it was only some hours old.

Getting nice fonts embedded in Blogger

Recently I have been hearing and reading a lot about typekit. So, I decided to find out how it can be useful to me. It basically is about getting nice fonts across browsers. It is a web service that provides font. The idea is really cool.

So I decided to try it out. They offer 25000 page-views per month and two fonts per site. I don't like either of these restrictions, especially the second one. So, I looked for alternatives and I found Google Web Fonts.

Using Google web fonts is very easy. You just need to select a font and then click on the Use this font tab and you have the instructions about how you can use it in your web page.

Font-face backed out because Google entered this market. However, you still have other alternatives like WebINK.
