Blogger woes

Blogger (the site that hosts this blog) has apparently made significant changes to its platform and I can no longer access my 'dashboard' or do anything other than post new blogs.  So if you commented on the new post below, it will be published when/if Blogger straightens out this mess.  For now, I can't do anything but read your comments in my email box.
Why can't they leave well enough alone!

Seems to be all straightened out. Everything's still there, just in different places.

I know your pain. :(

Well, four hours of searching, crashing the computer, searching some more, and I have finally had to face the truth: Blogger no longer supports any form of Internet Explorer. Under great duress, I downloaded Chrome and can now access the blog stuff again - though it all looks different and most of my other computer stuff doesn't work.
Tried exporting this blog to an external harddrive, but most of it didn't work. Once I figure that out, I will look at getting my own website instead of using this one or any other that other people can change at will!
For now I am shutting down the computer for the rest of the day, taking Eddie for a very late morning walk, cleaning house, doing gardening, and forgetting that cyberspace even exists.
Have I ever mentioned I hate technology?

Oh dear oh me jean, I can so relate to this. I've been with Chrome from the start so haven't had this prob. What did happen to me though was many months back I had a hack via my Facebook (which I no longer have anything to do with, completed deleted it) also deleted my (then) Blog (as a complete precaution) and started my new Blog. I haven't had any probs with my computer since finishing with Facebook. I guess I was just one of the unlucky ones. (The hack caused a lot of grief though) :)
Technology - Ha! me too. Have a great time with Eddie and enjoy being away from cyberspace!
