I haven't posted any updates recently as the rather fragile BB system that was, among other things, acting as my commenting system to the extent that I still cared, ate itself on an update. I spent some time cleaning that mess up and looking at thee last week of events for patterns.
As to commenting, I'll consider integrating Disqus. Yes, it's converged. That said, I don't care enough about local comments to maintain them, or worry too much if they go away again.
