New Blogger = New Commenting

Blogger has relaunched (and poorly re-architected their user interface, to my horror) in order to finally catch up to the competitors (feature-wise). I'm not a fan of a lot of the "improvements" but since the service is free I will avoid bitchin' 'bout it. Blogger is how I publish this site, incidently, so there have been a few changes that will affect you, the reader. The main change being: commenting. Blogger now allows commenting through its own system, which is good because a) I am the owner of your posts on my own personal hosting space; and b) your comments will be forever archived, never deleted, dropped, or lost (my previous commenting service - haloscan - only promised to save your comments for four months). But this is also bad because a) for the moment I lost all your previous posts (temporarily - they will eventually be reinstated); and b) it means you all need to adjust to the new commenting procedure. It is quite similar, just click on the comment link below, scroll below my post, click on the 'Post a Comment' button, and go nuts. And please do because I really really really like comments and because I ask so little of all of you as it is.

UPDATE: I noticed that to use the new Blogger commenting feature you either have to be a blogger member (which is free but pointless if you don't want your own blog) or you must comment anonymously. So for now, until they fix this, which I assume they will have to, just post using the anonymous feature and include your name in the post, as if you were writing an email or sumthin. This will all sort itself out eventually.
