I've heard for about a week now that some people had trouble reading my blog...others didn't...
The problem then was narrowed down to being IE related.
Well, the culprit has been found. No, my page does not contain a virus, but it DOES contain a FEEDJIT!....or rather.....it DID.
I got this email this morning:
Hello, there are some problems showing your blog in IE. The problems are raised by the widget from feedjit.com.
Best solution is from my opinion to delete this widget.
Discussions about this you can see at http://www.quiltfriends.de/showthread.php?p=601566#post601566
The problem being that the site is in German, and my German is REALLY bad...so I took their word for it and deleted my feedjit, which was a widget at the bottom of my page telling me where viewers of my page were logging in from. Fun idea, kind of nice, but I hate the fact it messed with some people's IE. So...I am now feedjit-less!
I am a Firefox girl. The first thing I did when this new puter came home with me was to put firefox back on it. Those of you still using IE......WHY? So Anyway...those other bloggers out there who are having people complain that there are problems with your blog? It's not you, it's your Feedjit....(or THEIR IE!)
The elephant is on my chest, but maybe it's a smaller one today. Just occassional productive hacking, I'm breathing better and hope to be on the mend!
I added borders to the Fungly Fifties top yesterday..PERFECT...solid red 1" inner border, and a 4.5" aqua/black check that you would have suspected CAME from the same era...it just looks right!
I got her loaded on the machine after I pieced a back, and began quilting, only to find my tension was SERIOUSLY screwed up. If I didn't know better I would swear that someone came down here and gave the knob a few turns for good (or bad) measure!! Which means..most of the first row I had to unsew...under the influence of cold meds. Needless to say, there is still a long way to go on this quilt.
The reason I also decided to quilt it? IT NEEDS WASHING!!! It's got funky smells and I don't dare wash it without it being quilted and bound first. How's that for a catalyst??
And yes, I know it is "Wild At Heart" again...but that's what was already on the machine table! In my sudafed induced stupor, I really didn't care what I was quilting this quilt with, only that it needed to be something where lines didn't cross, because there was fullness to take up in several of the blocks. And I just happen to like how this one looks.... :c)
Besides, this quilt is so fungly busy that no amount of heirloom quilting or continuous curve outlining was going to do much to enhance it. There are many many many places where seams don't meet or points are chopped off, and outlining would just make those come more front and center, so this works!
I heard back from the German group that there are still problems viewing this blog with IE. Anyone have any other ideas, other than to ditch IE?!? I have nothing to do with the interface of this blog software..I just type into it like everyone else. *baffled*.
