Trying something new (oh my!)

Since there are about six people who actually read this and I'm tired of the word verification every time I want to respond to a comment, I've removed word verification. It's supposed to weed out spam so if I suddenly find myself having to delete large amounts of spam, word verification will go back on.

In the meantime if you stop in to visit and have never commented (possibly because of the word verification), say "hello." I'm endlessly curious.

You should switch to haloscan for your comments. I don't get any spam. Harvey has the info on this side bar.

I'm with Sticks. Try haloscan.

I'd been thinking about haloscan. Just not up to making another change that involves messing with the html code for the blog. I really want to change the layout too, but at this point I've changed the base template so much that it feels like trying to climb Mt Everest in my flip-flops. *sigh*

This is what Sticks is talking about:

You get to keep your old comments, too.

On the other hand, you might want to wait & see if you get hit with a lot of spam first. Some people do. Some people don't.

Thanks, Harvey. I'll keep the link in case I decide to change over. For now I'll wait and see what happens.

~~~~~and wondering if this is going to work. I stop by often but never comment because I'm technologically challeneged and there's no one here to hold my hand or direct me as you would a two year old.

MathCogIdiocy said...

Woohoo! Sue's here. *grin*

See, you're not as technologically challenged as you thought.

Sarah said...

Math scares me, not word verification...Yet I still come here! I think I'm looking to learn something...

There, I made a comment! Ack!

*running away from you throwing flash cards like throwing stars*

MathCogIdiocy said...

sarah - you don't need to be afraid of math while you're here. There's so little of it. *grin*

*catching the starry flash cards*

nellsquirrel said...

Sue actually POSTED???!!!!

*sits down hard* Will wonders never cease...

Now that I don't have to word verify...(j/k)...
I need some math help. Check out my recent post on Leap year and give me your input. Is Rave right with .25 or am I right with .50 being that this is 2 years after leap year and her dear old aunt can't be 81 and be born on a leap year. I'd leave the link to make it easy for you, but I don't like doing that (self promotion and all). Thanks.

Hey, Nell! I've got a job for Uncle Guido. You'll know it when you see it. *grin*

YAY! Let the drunken comments begin! That word verification always kept me away on Friday nights!

MathCogIdiocy said...

contagion - the suspense of waiting for Friday's drunken comments may kill me. LOL

Harvey said...

Spam! Spam! Spam! :-D

Harvey! Bad Dog! LOL
