Can anyone tell me why Bloglines won't let me in?

I've not appeared on their list for a month.

I know we don't really need Bloglines now. We have those rolling blogrolls where you get your few minutes of fame at the top and then sink to everlasting oblivion.

But I still like Bloglines. It tells me when old friends like sl, Beryl and Anx have emerged for a breath of fresh air.

Perhaps it fell out with me because I went to Spain for Christmas.

The trouble started just after I got home.

I suffer from chronic paranoia already. If someone so much as frowns in my presence I take it personally.

So please tell me what's going on.
Is it something I said?
Am I wearing the wrong deodorant?


The problem appears to be fixed.
When I was writing the post I pressed that orange square on the right of the address bar.
I've examined the template and cleared up the sidebar.

But I still don't know why Bloglines 'barred' me and no one else.

I've never used the thing, so I really don't know about what you are talking, but I thought I ought to say something, so you don't think I'm ignoring you.

Thanks Dave.
I'm so glad that you are not me ignoring.

Never bothered with bloglines so don't know - but I do notice you still have a link to "British Blog Directory" which has been dead for months.

It is probably time you checked your sidebar links and dumped the deadwood.

eh? I'm such a techno phobe I have no clue about any of this. . .

I "follow" you (sounds a little like stalking, but it's not)(I hope) so I see your new pieces on my dashboard (that used to be something to do with cars, but now it's something else too)

(I did learn an interesting techno fact the other day tho: bluetooth - whatever that is - was named after a member of the Scandinavian nobility; fascinating, I'm sure you're thinking)(when I write "fact"/"learn" I mean that Stephen Fry mentioned it on QI, so it must be true, and I haven't forgotten it yet)

Maybe it's some kind of glitch... I haven't been using Bloglines much recently, relying more on Google Reader, but it's working for me today. Or maybe it just looks as though it is, because of the backlog I'm clearing there!

I have never used bloglines in my life. What are they? Do you sniff them up in used £20 notes? Or does information grind to a halt on them when fallen leaves abound?

The Bloglines web site requires that cookies be enabled in your browser. Bloglines uses two cookies, called "Bloglines" and "BloglinesEmail". The "Bloglines" cookie stores a session id, which is used to log you in on every page. The "BloglinesEmail" cookie just stores your email address, and is used to populate the "Email Address" field when logging into the Bloglines web site.

I'm off to check the kitchen cupboard for any cookies myself as it happens....

Bloglines is shite.

Google Reader is the one to use.

Please don't tell.

I needed telling.
But before I get round to tidying up the sidebar, I must clear out my wardrobe.
Adds to list of things to do.

You are on my dashboard too.
I'll get round to bluetooth soon - after the iPod.

I know what you mean by backlog - even if I'm in it.
So many blogs - so little time.

No -they are more like the punishmment given out by your teacher in units of 100.

Thankyou dog.
I'm off to check my cascading style sheets for HobNobs.

A very well considered appraisal.
Bloglines is a bit retro - but I like the way it all fits on one page - and I'm too lazy to transfer all the data to google reader.
You are there of course - but not Beryl.

I'm just here for the HobNobs.

My Word!
No doubt your participation in the Spanish Requisition has something to do with it. I tried it and gave up.

Between the follow this blog (great reminder just click on the pic)and the other Blogger link thingamabob, I have more than ample warning to mentally prepare myself to visit the 70 million blogs on the interwebs.

You Jammy Dodger you!

Dearest Darling Donn:
You should be given a special award for keeping the blogosphere going singlehandedly.

Dont Ask Me I STILL havn't got that ipod out of it's box..........!

An apology Kaz. The Times described the Saturday episode of NCIS completely differently to the Friday one, so I naturally assumed they were diferent shows. Having watched it last night, they'd just chosen to describe the same episode in two different ways.

I'll have to watch a DVD instead, there being nothing else worth watching.

Don't look at me, I've got a ridiculous amount of technical difficulties at the momement.

I'm a plug and play kind of girl and anything with instructions longer than 'insert end A into plug b'.....zzzzzzz

Well - you do live in Yorkshire - that explains a lot.

Thanks for the warning.
I'll find something on my hard disk.
It's my latest toy.

If the rest of the comments are anything to go by - you are in good company here.

As our youngest used to be fond of saying "What is?"

Bloglines, that is.....

I have no idea what it is, thus it can't be that important. Fret not.

It's just where I find out which of my friends has posted.
As you post every day - it's not necessary.
OK - almost every day.

I have read some of your posts and would like to revisit.

If you like reading short stories from an Indian writer, then a visit to my blogs would be an interesting one for you.

yes I meant tomorrow I thought it was today yesterday - I only knew yesterday was today (when it was yesterday) when we almost didn't win and then we did (in true United fashion) - then I said to Himself was this postponed from yesterday, meaning the day before yesterday, obviously, because that's what I thought it was / wasn't - look I'm all confused NOW!

Hello Nigel etc.
Sola - Looks like Mr Murph has competition now.

I understand every word. It was better when they had all the matches on Saturday afternoon.
You knew the routine then - flat cap, fish and chips, a few pints, through the turnstile and on to the terraces.
Home in time for tea.
