Blogger and Opera: Does it finally work now?

OperaThis is really a test post to see if Blogger now finally can be used on the best browser ever made: Opera.

Back when I posted the Avatars Against The War posts, I had to do so using Safari on my Mac and the awfully slow Internet Exploder on an awfully slow Windoze machine. And even then, I couldn't upload images, that's why I used deviantART embedded images.

Now I recently tried logging in again, which failed a few times until I realized blogger.com needs google.com cookies. I usually have in my Opera prefs "Accept only cookies from the site I visit" checked, as I don't want some crappy bannersite planting cookies on my machine. Changing this setting to allow cookies from external sites, I now was able to login Blogger and post this message.

The only problem now is... The Opera logo at the top right of this message isn't showing, while when I enter its url directly in my browser, it loads fine. :S See this thread.

Update: Somebody pointed me to the Picasa stuff, where uploaded images can be managed and I got a completely different url for the small logo. Pasting that in here seems to fix it. Now I want to delete the larger one from the album, but both the thumbnails appear the same size, and it lacks something useful like... a filename, so I have no idea which to delete. Come on Google, I thought your business was in online tools, I'd have expected you knew how to implement things other sites are using since 2000 already!

(floods in England, polar ice and ice caps at moutain peaks melting, I think more severe and frequent hurricanes in US, rain when it is supposed to be a dry season in my country, someone from Queensland recently contacted me if I noticed the weather changing. I replied when I was young I had to sleep under the blanket, but now I sleep topless. If I remembered, he said it is freezing in tropical Queensland and now he has to sleep under a blanket. Please folks, take good care of our one and only Spaceship Earth which have no lifeboat. It may not affect us severely now, but it has every chance of severely affecting our future generations. Then they will have lots to be "thankful to us)
