How to Lose your Blog Posting!

I stumbled on one of my posting "Sentimental Favourites - Mark's Assam Laksa" in a faraway place in Northeast India. This blog www.sinlung.com seems to focus on all things Northeast India. It's far away physically but getting there is a mere 15 keyboard strokes away.

The interesting part was my post was sent into blogosphere on the 9th Decemeber 2008 at Malaysian time 6:44pm. The Northeast Indian blog had sent it out almost lock, stock and barrel (with no attribution to the original author) at 13:26pm the same day. With a time difference of 2 1/2 hrs it will be about 11am Malaysian time. Check it out! How can this be?

I did an experiment with Blogspot in which I tried sending a blog out using an earlier time and date stamp. It was successful. Just go to "New Post" at the right hand top menu. Then on the left bottom corner of the typing panel there is "Post Option". Click on it. A small panel will appear below the typing panel. Here is where the settings are. I usually use it to plan my forward post. But one can also setback the time and date.
And the rest of it.This is my original post.

It does happen... For me, it was last year, together with Sharon Bakar and some other bloggers. There's really not much we can do about it but being a prominent and prolific does tend to point readers your way, so you are recognised as the original author.

So fret not, sir! :)

people say there are always look alikes round the world !

since yours is so aptly titled , there will certaily be more windows round the world !

maybe you should find a way to charge 100 ringgit per window that opens outside your corner

LforB... won't be the last...

TT... you are spot on, I think the intention is the traffic.

BSG... 'worldwindows' is to too big for my seat! My intention actually was 'window to the world' but it is really a mouthful.

The nerve! And there's so little control you have over this, it's infuriating. You know what they say about imitation... tis purely flattery, so I suggest you take it as that.

550mlJoF... can happen to anyone. I find it more interesting than disturbing.... for now!
