I‘ve heard from a few people over the past few weeks that they are having trouble viewing Civil War Memory. The problem seems to be with those of you who are running one of the older versions of Internet Explorer. In some cases an error message is received and in the worst cases the loading time simply runs out. It looks like one of the twenty WordPress plug-ins that I use could be causing the problem, so one way to deal with this would be for me to go through one by one to find the culprit. I have neither the time nor the patience to carry out such a project. Apparently, the easiest fix is for you to upgrade to Internet Explorer 8. Please do let me know if the problem persists after upgrading. I would have been more proactive if the number of visits had significantly declined, but surprisingly, just the opposite happened and even after being away from the blog for two weeks.
