Something called "Google Analytics" is fucking up Internet access to my blog. When I try to access my blog's "dashboard" in Firefox, I can see, very briefly, my dashboard, and then Firefox attempts to load a new page over the top of it. In the bottom bar I can see that it's loading something called "google analytics", but the load is unsuccessful. The browser "hangs" about halfway and that's the end of that.
So I went to Internet Explorer, which I hate, to try to avoid this problem. I can actually see my dashboard AND write a blog post. But half of the time it also stalls out and the post won't actually get posted.
Okay, fine. I'll just fucking download the Google browser, something called "Chrome" and use it. It OUGHT to be able to do my blog fine, since Blogger is owned by Google.
Yeah, so you'd think... I posted exactly three entries and then it started hanging when IT was looking for "google analytics"...
Right now I'm using IE and crossing my fingers that it will work.
In the meantime, I have had quite enough frustration. We're off to Lincoln City, Oregon, for the long weekend. Screw Google and screw google analytics and all of the rest of it.
See you all next week.
Update: I just tried to publish this post and I got a strange page, apparently from Google Analytics, called "retrevo.com" and an alert from my Spy Sweeper that it wanted to plant a tracking cookie...
The post apparently did not get published. Now I'll switch over and try it with Chrome...
