Comment Change

The comment script has been renamed (once more). This gives us a brief respite from spam, and should last us until we're on the new server.

What this means is that comments on all your old posts are effectively closed (since they link to the old script) and comments on your recent posts won't work until you update your blog (post a new entry or edit a recent entry) or do a rebuild.

I'm going to see if I can do a quick rebuild of people's front pages to help work around that.

Update: The rebuild appears to be working. If you still have comment problems on your blog, first try updating a post (just edit the post and save it), and if that doesn't fix it, let me know and I'll get it sorted out for you.

"Sorry, we don't have any of those."

Response to commenting attempts. New post. Also same after a rebuild. Anything else I should try?

Sorry about that Steve. I had to tweak your templates slightly to get your site to pick up the change. Should be working now.

So far I have not been able to access TexasBestGrok to do a rebuild, post a new entry, etc. Things start--e.g., start to do a rebuild--then hang up and freeze. No joy in Mudville here.

Will get offline, reboot and try again. Also will kill a chicken or a groat.

Killing a chicken seems to have worked. Or maybe it was the barbecue sauce (hey, this is TexasBestGrok, no?). In any case other...than...being...very...very...slow... I am able to rebuild, etc. and kill a couple of spam comments that were left today.

Yes, it was the chicken that did it. :)

(Actually, there was a process running that was making the server run verrrry slowwwwly. I killed that, and things are better now. Only problem is that I will have to run it again at some point.)
