    How do you make Google account? Why is Youtube changing so you can not use your Youtube password? When I just signed into Youtube I got this message—– Please start signing in with your Google password from now on. Pretty soon we will be phasing out support for signing in with your old YouTube password.

    I have data in a Google spreadsheet that I would like to automatically import into my WordPress website. How do I do it?

  12. People have to login to google before they can view the calendar on my blog. How do i make it available to anyone, regardless if they have an account or not.

  13. Google’s search engine now requires javascript. Can’t click on the results and go to the sites with javascript turned off. Does Google have a non-javascript search engine or something?
    It appears to be an experimental thing that Google is doing and is turning the feature on and off intermittently. I hope they don’t make it JavaScript only, if they do I will quit using Google search. I will virus scan my computer just in case though.
