|From For Ellipsis|
"Never trust anything that can think for itself if you can't see where it keeps it's brain."
Over the last couple weeks, you might have noticed something odd when you clicked on Ellipsis. Some folks have told me that on a couple different occasions Internet Explorer would suddenly begin loading page, after page, after page, and the only way to make it stop, would be to reboot! What a drag! I had it happen to me a couple times, so I feel your pain... I really do! I would feel so bad if that glitch drove anyone away, I have worked hard on Ellipsis in the nearly 6 six years I have been blogging. I like hosting the Monday Photo Shoot, and I think for the most part, folks have fun with it... right?
But how annoying would it be to have multiple pages opening in IE for no reason? What to do, what to do? Well, I did a little research, and I found out that the glitch is indeed in IE, not in Ellipsis. I also found out that many times it is attached to the Weatherbug widget. I did have that particular widget on my sidebar for a while, and I took it out last week, along with a couple other widgets just to be safe, but apparently it can happen randomly with any page you load, not just with my blog. I found many websites with folks reporting the same problem who have never visited my blog. Sigh. I don't know what else I can do.

I am going to try adding back my music player, and a couple other widgets that I am sure have nothing to do with the glitch. Please let me know if you have any difficulties accessing Ellipsis. It only involves the unexpected loading of multiple Internet Explorer pages. The only other thing I can think of is that maybe viewing me in Firefox might be best for the time being. These glitches tend to fix themselves in time, but as usual Microsoft is being of very little help! If it doesn't help, my only alternative might be to just close Ellipsis and start all over, which of course, wouldn't be my first choice, but ultimately, I don't want to annoy folks.
