Youtube or any website Not Loading Properly :: Flush your DNS

Today something queer happened around evening time while I was trying to access youtube. Through out the day I was able to access YouTube as usual, as normal, without any error. But around evening time whenever I tried to access YouTube particularly from my Mozilla Firefox 3+, the website was loading but without any CSS. In the sense, YouTube was loading but without any design. I was still able to watch videos, but everything from the YouTube video player, related videos, recommended videos, comment box etc were being displayed in a very distorted manner. The problem existed even till now.

And just now I came up with the solution. While trying to work with my website, I was trying some DNS & network related commands, during which I tried this solutions.

1. Press the Window Key + R (the key with the Windows Logo) also called the Command key or open the Run Dialog Box.

2. In the Run Box type >>> cmd or command and press enter.

3. One inside the DOS interface type ipconfig/dnsflush. 

This should resolve your problem.

Unable to Access Blogger, Blogspot, Blog not Opening, DNS Error

Two days ago I faced a queer problem that I'd never faced in my whole 2 years+ experience of blogspot. Every time I entered my "blog-url" in my Firefox I would get the following errors:

"Problem loading Page....
Server not found
Firefox can't find the server at"

I freaked out ... WTF??? .. I even posted on my FB wall ... "Surprised to know that even a Service Provider like Google could experience downtime....." A chilling thought even ran into my mind ~ "Had Google blocked my blog?"

But after some "googling" and waiting I found out ~ All My Guesses Were Simply Wrong!!!! The problem had nothing to do with Google | Blogger. The problem lied with my ISP and the Dynamic IP assigned to me by my ISP (Internet Service Provider."

How I figured out the flaw was from my ISP and NOT Google?

I simply visited and accessed my blog and Voila!!! I could access my blog quite conveniently. Then I called up my friend who works for IBM and asked him to check as to whether he could access my blog(s) from his home-computer. And again, YESsss he could. Again I used an IP changer software, which creates a "dummy IP" to conceal your IP. Here I changed my IP to Plano, Texas, US and again I could access my blog.

Now with all these test I became sure of the possible problem and it had nothing to do with Blogger | Google. The problem was with nobody but my ISP.

What can|should you do NOW?

How to Change your Facebook (FB) Relationship Status without letting your Friends know about it?

Sometimes you might have been or will be in a situation, where you would want to Change your Facebook Relationship Status, without letting your friends know a thing about it. In the sense, you wouldn't want "your status change" to be displayed in the Facebook's Newsfeed where all your friends will view it. 

So how do you go about it? Very Simple.... By following a simple trick (that I myself have tested & tried) you can easily achieve that ;-)

1. Hover your mouse over the Account Tab & Click On Privacy Settings. 
2. Now at the bottom of your page click on Customise settings
3. On the right side of Relationships you can see a tab which might read as (Everyone, Friends of Friends etc) depending upon what you'd selected previously. Click on that Tab and Select >>> Customize
4. A box called Custom Privacy will open. 
5. On the "Make this visible to" option; Select "only me" and finally Click on "Save Setting."

Now you can change your relationship status to the status of your choice.

Once you've made the required relationship status change, follow the steps above and in the Visible section >>> Select >>> "Make these visible to: friends, friends of friends" depending on your choice.
