Removing Border and Shadow from Selected Images in Blogger Dynamic View

Previously, I wrote a tutorial on how you can remove borders and shadows from your pictures, in a Dynamic View template. The tweak applies to all the pictures in your blog. Blog reader Filipe wants to know if it is possible to remove borders and shadows from a single image alone, instead of applying the tweak to all images. Yes, it is possible, and here's how.

Blogger Dynamic View Picture Menu

Two weeks ago, I showed a simple way to use pictures as your tab menu, instead of using the conventional plain old text. But I used HTML to go about it, and as it is widely known, Blogger does not allow HTML modification in Dynamic View. So here it is, the same tweak adapted to serve Dynamic View users, using CSS alone...

One important note before you start. If you have a drop-down pages menu in your Dynamic Views, this tweak isn't gonna be useful. I'm not saying it can't be done, just that I didn't bother to cover it as I figured having pictures in a drop-down menu is not gonna be that pretty. Also, it won't work on IE8 and earlier versions of IE (will work on IE9).

How to Install DAHDI for Asterisk

Note: This is a non-Blogger related post

Some of my friends have asked me how to install DAHDI on Linux based system. I was thinking of writing an email, but decided to immortalize the information by blogging about it instead. Back to the actual story. You'd need DAHDI modules installed on your linux machine to make Asterisk's audio conferencing feature work. The Debian virtual disk image that you guys have copied from campus network does not come with DAHDI pre-installed. In this post, I'm gonna show you guys how you can install DAHDI on your Debian. I've tried the installation on Fedora 16, and it works fine as well. Feel free to try it on other Linux distribution.

Remove Loading Gear from Blogger Dynamic View

Few readers have asked me if there is a way to remove the loading gear from Dynamic View. I couldn't capture the gear's code back then as it was too quick (and still is), but I've managed to find a way to analyze it. So here's how you can get rid of it.
