For some reason, something in the far-right (not to be confused with the Far-Right Wing Conspiracy groups, DHS is worried about) side bar is causing Internet Explorer to crash when trying to access the blog.
Until I get the time to actually go in and figure out what new fangled update Bill Gates sent all the IE users that causes this issue, you are going to have to use Mozilla Firefox. At one time I would ahve been happy about that, but Firefox isn't all that great either anymore.
Oh well, thats what you get when you can't leave something well enough alone....
UPDATE: For those that really want to use IE, when the page loads and the side bars start to load, just click the stop button and avoid the dreaded abort dialouge box that results if you let the page try and load completely.
