The poll's down. And very interesting results, by the way. Now that it's not cluttering up the sidebar . . .

Have any of you, especially those who visit Yeah, But Houdini Didn't Have These Hips directly via Internet Explorer, have any access problems?

I've had a complaint and wondered if the problem is widespread, and if it has anything to do with Blogger's poll widget. (It all works fine for me and I use IE.)

While I'm talking functionality, though . . .

Does anyone else have a problem staying logged in? I've got the recommended security settings for Internet Explorer enabled, nothing extra, but I can't stay logged in to anything when using this browser. (There's no problem with Firefox.)

Most peculiarly, I cannot use Google applications together: Gmail, Google Reader, Blogger, iGoogle, etc. I can only be logged in to one at a time. It's very annoying! (And has kept me from using iGoogle at all, lately, since my Reader and Gmail feeds are on my iGoogle page.) The problem seems to be worsening over time, even though I completely changed my virus protection software and deleted all my cookies.

Very annoying. Advice? (Other than using Firefox all the time. I have different sets of log-ins that I keep on Firefox and IE, so I use both daily.)

I'm on IE and have had no problems, including with using multiple g-services at once. Maybe you need to delete all of your cookies and start from scratch?

Rob, I'm glad to hear that you've had no problems.

You know, I already deleted all my cookies and started over. It didn't seem to affect my staying-logged-in problem (or the frantic reloading my iGoogle homepage does when trying to be logged in to my Google Reader and Gmail at the same time, which eventually causes my browser to lock-up). It's weird. And impossible to contact Gmail tech support.

Wakeful baby; gotta run!

I use IE and a day or two ago I couldn't access this blog and a few others. Then there were other blogger blogs that I had no problem with. It was weird, I assumed it was something on my end though... I had just downloaded's mp3 downloader and I assumed that's what futzed everything up.

Phew. Glad to be back. :)

Weird! I'm glad you're back, and please let me know if it happens again!
