Blogger Cookies, not the tasty kind

Blogger apparently doesn't want me to comment on posts anymore, blaming my cookie settings, which I never change (though I did delete them recently, along with my temporary files). I've gone into my internet options to allow Blogger cookies and it still won't let me leave a comment. In my own blog. Ergh. >.<

I'll admit it. Computers confuse me. I will never understand them quite as thoroughly as I'd like to. (~~~flashback~~~ I was halfway through high school before we even had a computer in our house. Even then, I got it as a donation from my school, from the bunch they were getting rid of, because we couldn't afford one otherwise. ~~~end flashback~~~)

Anyway, there's are posts coming in the next few days, but I'm hopefully going to figure this blogger/cookie thing first.

In the meantime, head on over to The Charmed Bracelet and read about Jennifer's first literary crushes.

Do you use Firefox, Explorer, or another web browser?

If you're using Firefox, you can use Tools > Options, then click the Privacy tab and leave cookies turned off BUT make exceptions to that rule.

So, for example, adding "blogger.com" to your list of exceptions (click "Allow for Session" when you're done) should make it possible for you to leave comments.

If you're using Explorer, go to Tools > Internet Options, then click the Privacy tab and move the slider bar up a notch and see if it helps. This isn't as secure as being able to allow only certain websites to set cookies, obviously, but that's Microsoft for you.

You're welcome, Jennifer. I don't have a huge readership, but if we want an awesomely long chain, I figured it couldn't hurt.

JJ--Thanks. I did try toggling that slide bar (I have IE), but that wasn't really working. I added blogger because it seems IE has that same 'exceptions' opton as Firefox, but I guess it just needed to be restarted to take full effect. Thank you for the instructions, though. I'll save them in case it happens again.

Oh, computers, why must you be so fickle?
