    Just a heads-up, Wombat-socho: a lot of complaints on the new Disqus style over at Scoop’s.  Prepare for incoming when you change over!

    I kind of like it.  But I’m used to reading code.

     I hadn’t noticed, but then I don’t get out much.

    They claim to have fixed a lot of bugs. Added some nifty features. But the comment format is naked. I’m guessing you’ll be able to clean it up later. Scoop switched it off today, due to complaints.
