I have just found out a useful tidbit. When you are trying to bring up a blog and get that annoying box saying that Internet Explorer cannot communicate and will be shutting down, click ok, but instead of giving up, or trying to reload it, simply hit the back arrow up in the left hand corner of your screen, and the blog page will come back and work fine.
Now I've got to sweep up, and try and glue back all of my hairs that I've pulled out over the past few days. The hard part will be finding the proper follicle for each hair. Sigh.
