First of all, why aren’t you using FireFox? Firefox is so much better, whether you’re using a pc or a mac. Plus, it’s free!
Second, if you’re using IE 6, you’re not seeing anything in the sidebar to the right — and there’s stuff there. If you upgrade to IE 7, you’ll see more on this page. If you switch over to Firefox, you’ll be more secure and have less glitches likes this happen. I could try to figure out why this happens and fix it, but honestly, that’s not gonna happen for a while.
