Comments a problem....

Readers & fellow bloggers, I've gotten a request (demand more like it) that I do something about the CGI scripts that are overloading my webhost's server. This is the second time in two months this has happened, and I don't have the time to move to another webhost right now. So, I have turned off comments. Godless or someone else can install haloscan or one of the commenting systems out there that aren't locally hosted. I will be inquiring with my webhhost if I can reinstall comments on our servers that are based on PHP, which should have a much smaller foot-print. I would like to bitch about our webhost...but this is the second webhost that we have crashed, so I guess we're just too popular.

Anyway, hope you understand.

Update:

Godless here. Just wanted to remark that this is temporary. We may install something like Haloscan as a stopgap, or else we might move directly to PHP. But we will have comments available again in the (very) near future. Till then, feel free to use the message boards to tell us why we're totally wrong/right.
