"blogger has new stuff for composing and editing posts here! too bad i have nothing interesting to post yet..."i think it was a premature declaration. i posted it when i was at my uncle's office, and now everything about the edit page has changed: they're gone! i wonder if they appear only if i use another pc.
i wouldn't have bothered with the original post were it not for the fact that there was a huge (as in huge!) gap between it and the post next to it. hopefully this intervention will rectify that. but i do miss the edit buttons and the convenience that came with them.
