Haloscan

After getting great feedback from blameMike and Chistopher Hawkins to my previous posts, as well as being referrenced by Julie Lerman and Avonelle Lovhaug, I thought it would be a good idea to turn tracking on. So I have added Haloscan commenting and trackback to my blog.

There’s one thing about Haloscan that you should be cognizant of (the preceding was taken directly from Haloscan’s support forum):

1. Help! My old comments disappeared from Haloscan and my blog!

A: You're not a Premium member, are you? If you're not, all comments older than 4 months will be archived by Haloscan (NOT deleted). You cannot presently access these without becoming a Premium member. No, there is no other way.

I had a fair amount of comments on my blog from some really cool cats (Carl Franklin, Eric J Smith, Phil Winstanely) that have now gone the way of DOS -- until I become a Premium Member that is (which I don’t envisioning anytime in the immediate future).

Just FYI.

You lose your comments after 4 months? Ouch!

Sounds like a good excuse to write your own blogging tool, Val. ;)

That's what I'm doing -- writing my own ASP .NET blog app that is.

Thanks for the tips. I am now removing Haloscan...
