Housekeeping: We’ve Switched To Disqus For Comments (Please Be Patient)
If you’re wondering were all the comments went, they’re currently being imposted into Disqus. We’ve switched to Disqus, a commenting platform with all kinds of great features, including great social integration, notifications and multimedia.
When it’s up and running, it promises to be a great system. However, importing the old comments can sometimes take a while: maybe even two or three days.
That’s for existing comments. New comments should post immediately. Fingers crossed it’s up and running quickly. In the meantime, please leave any questions, comments or complaints in — you guessed it — the new comments system.
And thanks for your patience — Leander.
