Several — okay, two — readers have noted a tiny little note embedded in the comment system that reads “This commenting widget will be discontinued on October 1, 2012.” (As the administrator, I can’t see it myself.)
That’s true. The system I use — JS-Kit — is going away. But fretteth not; I am planning to replace it before then. In fact, there will be a couple of other improvements as well. We — meaning me and my brother who designed this version of the site — are still working on them so I’m not going to go into detail yet, but I think you will like them. I know you will like the new commenting system.
