Those of you who've tried to read my posts on IE are already saying: "Duh."
I'm sorry it's been such a mess. (Hear my broken-down sobbing...)
I'm trying my darndest to make my blog compatible in every fashion, for every version of everything, but it's a Sisyphean task.
What I do know is, in the meantime, you can "make the bad man go away" by using the latest version of Firefox or Safari. It's an Instant Remedy, and you can do it on your end, instead of waiting for me to crack up getting to the source of all my validation errors.
Firefox and Safari work on Mac and Windows and god knows what else. People far more expert than I would urge you to make the switch.
Apparently Safari and Firefox are much "better for you" than IE, because they are resistant to spyware and viruses—whereas IE sounds like a piece of cheesecloth. If you upgrade and switch browsers, you'll likely be impressed for many reasons, including being able to read, see, and hear my blog again.
Another sad note of progress:
I just turned on the CAPTCHA system for my comments section, which means that when you post a comment, you'll have to type in a series of letters that help validate that you are a person and not a machine.
It's not difficult in the least— it's just a pain, another little inconvenience.
Why have I been brought so low? Because I have been spending an hour a day cleaning spam out of my blog comments. It's enraging, not to mention a stupendous waste of time.
Please know that I value all your very human and valuable comments; I treasure them. If this new system doesn't help with the spam hassle, I'll disconnect it and try something else.
And now back to your regularly scheduled program....
