Listing in this post some orkut hacks, tricks which you can use to be kool orkuttian!
1. Ever seen someone without First name and/or Last Name! If yes, you might have tried to do the sane but while editing your profile came 2 know that first name n last name can not be left blank! So how did others did that?
While editing name just put ALT+0173 i.e. press ALT & while it is pressed type 0173 in any field u want to left blank! You wont see any output! (In Opera u may see '-' character but surely nothing will be displayed in Firefox n IE)
2. You can also use this special character if you want to escape orkut's default formatting which is applied to your text while posting on communities and writing scrap!
e.g. [red]Hi[/red] wont look Hi
if u use [r(ALT+0173)ed]Hi[/r(ALT+0173)ed]!
Just insert ALT+0173 anywhere!
U can also insert in Url's to escape image verification while posting links but they wont be clickable :(
3. You can just write ALT+0173 while posting on communities n scrapbook to post blank scrap n posts!

The best link to setup as your homepage is https://www.orkut.com/GLogin.aspx?cmd=logout
When someone click on this the person will be logged out from his/her orkut session :D
This made many people fool (including me) as we often don't read actual content of homepage field while checking someone's profile!
Do u think logging into Orkut is slow n login box disappears???
Bookmark the following link and use it to login into orkut!
The above link directly opens orkut login box! So it is faster than normal orkut login!
