Growing Pains
In a procrastination bid I have changed the bolt-on commenting system here at Octopushat. I still don't get why big bad Blogger doesn't natively support comments but whatever... I've been unhappy with "Back Blog" for a while now for a bunch of different reasons and have seen Haloscan popping up on more and more Blogger blogs. Turns out they address most of the issues I had with Backblog, and it is still free! Some reasons for the switch: Haloscan's default template isn't ugly, there is a 3000 character limit on posts (as opposed to the 400 character limit imposed by backblog,) they support trackback (welcome to 2002,) and Haloscan supports RMS/XML feeds for comments! Yippie! SO let me know what you think of the new system, and if everybody hates it I'll switch back...
