I am now outvoted (by a 2/3 majority no less!) in support for comments for mod_blog!
This came about because someone else is now using my software!
First it was Mark and now it's
Gregory (he hasn't finished his templates yet else I would link to his new
journal). And now that the majority have spoken, I have responded. I spent
a few hours today adding enough support to
mod_blog to support
comments from an external source (say, Haloscan, or an external CGI program like the one Spring
hacked up). I need to document this and get the code on the server, but
it does work on the test blog I have.
Next up is to support a simple comment system natively in
mod_blog; it's not what I originally wanted to support, but I
had yet to actually figure out how to support what I originally
wanted (each comment getting its own URL and the ability to select comments like you can
select entries in
mod_blog) but it is a start.

You have my permission to link freely to any entry here. Go
ahead, I won't bite. I promise.
The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: https://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
