Hi Everyone - I know that some of you are experience the same problem I am - getting the operation aborted message when you go visit someone's blog. It is the followers gadget. It doesn't work with Internet Explorer. And Blogger knows and hasn't fixed it since it was reported in May. Their only solution - use a different browser, delete the gadget or move it to the bottom, or just learn to deal with it. I found if you hit the back button enough times it will eventually load ok. But I am finding this is taking more and more backs for me - and I can't use a different browser because, well lets just say there are a bunch of reasons, not the least of which is that my cousin works for Microsoft, and I do like to check the blogs from work, and if I put something on my machine I would get in trouble. I get the blogs I visit through my RSS feed but there is no way to comment there. If I don't comment on your site and you have a followers gadget anywhere other than the bottom of the page, don't think I am ignoring you, I am probably just having problems getting to you. I have tried a couple sites today and after 6 or 7 times hitting the back button I have given up. I am going to try again from home but like I said - I am reading, just can't comment on all of them right now - but it doesn't mean I have left your blog following. Thanks for understanding and I promise I will keep trying.
If anyone has any trouble getting to my page, please feel free to go into my profile and drop me an email - I have my followers at the bottom which is supposed to work but I am never sure.
