My Commenting Software

Okay point taken in the comments of the entry below this one. My commenting software leaves something to be desired.

Here’s the thing: the people who created it don’t exist anymore, so there’s no support (or wasn’t, last time I checked) and I’m not a pro PHP programmer. But the key is that I’m not dependent on somebody else’s server to control my comments – they live on my server, so if I’m up, they’re up, etc. etc.

I need to find new commenting software. I promise, I’ll look into it. I just need to find something blogger.com-friendly. And Jody-friendly.

This is a bigger issue for me right now because I’m moving hosts, possibly this weekend, and I haven’t been able to get the comments to work yet on the new server. It’s a whole paths thing, that I’m sure I can work out, I just haven’t had the time.

Anyway, that’s your head’s up that for a brief time, we will be in flux between the two servers. I have no idea how it will affect my mail, so your best bet for reaching me once I tell you I’m flipping the switch, is to leave a comment. I’d post the DNS address for the new server here, but I don’t want you guys using that yet, as that site isn’t up-to-date, etc. So keep yer pants on!

And if you use Blogger and have good commenting software, don’t be a stranger!
