Commenting shift 

A quick, rare Saturday post. Haloscan, which has been my commenting software almost as long ago as I had this blog, is being retired after being bought by JS-Kit. Their new software, for a very reasonable price, is called Echo. It's not quite as high-tech as some commenting software I've seen, but it's pretty full-featured and at the price (just $9.95 for us Haloscan converts) just wonderful. The pages will turn over to Echo from Haloscan, and hopefully all the comments will be retained even on the oldest posts.

BTW, I'm also trying out the beta of Chrome for Mac, and this seems to work pretty well. Safari would have occasional hiccups with some of the script for Blogger, which was a drag. So far I rather like Chrome.
