Refreshing? Not!

Awww, adorable!
This photo has nothing to do with
what I'm talking about today;
it's just adorable, don't you think?
You might say it's "refreshing?"

You might think I'm going to talk about:

a refreshing day?
a cool, refreshing drink?
refreshing thoughts?
a refreshing swim?

Nope. I'm going to talk about how my blog isn't refreshing posts properly. A while back a friend told me she likes to come to my blog to check other blogs, because it lists how long ago their most recent post was made.

Well, I hope she isn't still counting on that method, because it just hasn't been working. I've been waiting for certain blogs to - come on, post something already! - and finally I checked, and there were several new posts, even though my side bar shows an old, old date as their most recent. And even the 'refresh' button didn't help them refresh. Arrgghh.

Don't depend on silly computer programs to log the truth. When the program doesn't do its job, it's not very refreshing!

I'm no expert or even amature expert on these things, but I wonder if all the stuff on your sidebar could be part of the problem. Also, I opened the blog on Mozilla Firefox, but decided to look at in on IE as well. IE told me that there was some problem with the website being designed for an older browser. Then it went into compatibility view, whatever that means.

I don't know what you can do about this, but these are clues you might be able to persue.

I am experiencing the same problem with another blog I read, Fibermania, but not with yours. Wonder what's going on?
