About comments

I've finally had to make the switch from Haloscan/Echo to something else. I am trying out Disqus. We'll see how well it works out. One side effect is that because of how I had apparently set comments in Blogger, when I sync up comments either with Blogger or with Disqus, all comments show up as authored by me, Don Durito. Not much I can do about that, other than look through the data file I downloaded from Haloscan and at some point when I have a moment to breathe, either somehow change the identities to the appropriate commenters, or at least edit the comments to make note of proper attribution. Given my exceedingly tight schedule (as I am sure you've noticed given the dearth of posts in recent months), it'll be a while. All new comments will get attributed properly though. I've seen to that.

Testing comments to make sure they are working. So far, so good.

Here's another one for you. I'm amazed that Haloscan are still around after all this time.

I figured something was up when I didn't receive a bill maintain my service with Echo (which is what Haloscan evolved into). I'd tried Echo out the previous year when they were offering a teaser rate. Not that I'll complain. This looks like it'll do the job I want of it. I do have at least one deceased friend whose blog was relying on Haloscan - I am guessing all of the many comments on that blog will be lost now. A shame - he had quite a community there.
