The change has begun… You probably can’t see anything yet, but behind the scenes, a new commenting system is being installed and your old, much loved comments are being imported into that new commenting system so that your valuable views are never lost.
More on that in a future post (i.e. I have to to work out how to use it before I can tell you).
The import to the new commenting system currently stands at post #2005 of an impressive 3597. And it appears to be stuck. Meanwhile, the new commenting system has sent me 4 emails telling me that it has completed the import. Really now? Honestly, I believe more of what I heard during last night’s debate.
I’m now working on trying to make the font on the site look pretty. It’s harder than it looks. And it looked quite hard.
Depending on how things go, the switch over might be later today, or it may be tomorrow.
Either way, despite the best efforts of mice and men (but to be far, mainly men), it’s probably still reasonable to expect a few minor teething problems. We’ll be trying to identify and squash them as soon as we can.
