Commenting Lag

Forgive this site maintenance note, but for the past couple days the site has been taking a long time to process comments. This led to some people accidentally leaving double comments. (It’s okay! I forgive you!) I discovered the problem has to do with the Movable Type blogging software’s SpamLookup plug-in. According to this blog one of the blacklist services that catches spam has shut down, which was causing the delay. If you are a blogger who uses Movable Type and have been experiencing similar problems, follow the instructions in the post to stop using that particular blacklist service.

I’ve tested the commenting speed and it appears to be working fairly quickly now. If anyone else still experiences significant delays in commenting (like 10 seconds or more), please leave a comment here or a double comment or a triple comment :) Otherwise I’ll consider the problem fixed and I can finally get back to blogging about how fast my feet are these days and not how slow the server is.

I just checked your sidebar and wanted to say congratulations on hitting a new “decade”. I only wish I were moving down the scale with you!

Wow–how amazing is that, to have only 19 more pounds to goal! You’re going to blow right through them, I’ll bet. That’s only *one-tenth* what you’ve already lost!

Promise me, or someone, that you will blog as much about maintenance as you are doing about the loss. And won’t go silent during your book crunch.

This is genuinely inspiring. Seeing you execute a hairpin curve back onto the Ho Chi Minh Trail toward your goal, just at the hour when all seemed darkest, is the stuff great stories are made of.

179 – Way to go! Did you tell your brother your fans are eagerly anticipating pics?

Hi Pasta Queen! I’ve been a lurker for a long time and you really are an inspiration. You rock! I have a suggestion for your book title, if it’s not too late:

Half-Assed; But(t) Done Right

OMG! That Half-Assed title rocks. Too freaking funny.

This is probably a sign that I've got problems, but the idea of sleeping for 30 hours sounds really appealing.

I'm linking to this because of the video of Harry Connick Jr. at the bottom, who manages to throw in an extra beat in the middle of a song to get people to start clapping on the offbeat without them even realizing. Mad skillz!
