Comments are back!
Comments are now back up and running. They were interesting to put together; as a concept they don't play well with a static site, as they are by their very nature dynamic.
I was considering using Disqus, but I do want to try to
keep my data to myself with this blog. I wound up putting together a separate
comments.gilesthomas.com, which is non-static, and handles all of the
Akismet -- the one external dependency I feel I can allow myself -- to filter
Should be interesting to see how it works! I'll give the new system a few days to bed in, and for a spot of code-tidying, then I'll post on the design of the new blog as a whole. I feel that I have Things To Say.
