Comments

Dear readers, it has come to our attention that Haloscan, which has provided the comments service you have been using here, does not keep comments available for more than a few months. Much to our chagrin, some great comments threads on this blog have disappeared into the ether. So we are going to switch over to the Blogger comments system, which we hated when it first became available, but which seems much better now. This will mean a somewhat painful transition at first, and eventually all the comments on the old Haloscan pages will be lost (which they would have been, anyway). So, we are going to keep both systems for a week or two, while those old threads are still alive. However, beginning today, please start using the "New Comments" link to post your comments on new posts. Many thanks for your patience, and keep the great comments coming. We enjoy reading your thoughts.

I have been transferring some of the comments over to the Blogger comments boxes, to preserve them. If you have made comments that you want to be saved, take a second and transfer them at some point in the next couple weeks. Soon, Haloscan will be only a memory.

Hey, Charles. While you're at it, you might want to enable the spam-blocker word verification setting on Blogger.

Those of us who have been using it have found it a "must have" vis a vis preventing unwanted comments, especially from enthusiastic window blind salespeople, etc.

OK, thanks for the tip. I left it off, assuming that it would be annoying. But if you endorse it, I will put it on.

I do highly recommend it, and you'll find Jessica Duchen, our whole Ring Surf opera blog group and many others will too. It is annoying but unfortunately necessary (for your sanity and a clean blog!)
