No more widgets

Okay, the experiment is over. I've dumped those little boxes that had been popping up to the right of the screen showing various useless things (the San Diego temperature, newspaper front pages, LSU Tiger headlines - well, maybe some of them were useful). Somehow they all seemed interesting when I added them during late night blogging sessions. And weren't they sooooo pretty to look at?

Turns out this Web page eye candy was destructive. For some unexplained reason, this particular strain of widget causes Internet Explorer 6.0 to crash on many computers, including mine at work.

So, my apologies to everyone who's had trouble loading this page. I promise I won't do it again.

After we talked Saturday, I suddenly remembered several things that I had meant to bring up when we were on the phone. (Doesn't that always happen?) One of those things was the trouble I was having opening this blog. I'd usually have to make several attempts, one after the other, before it would open without immediately crashing. I didn't know if the problem was with your site or my computer, but I wanted to tell you in case others were having the same problem.

Sorry I forgot to mention this. I'm glad you discovered the problem and its source anyway, and that you were able to eliminate it so easily. Please know that your blog now opens just fine.
