Comments Now Supported

People occasionally email me questions or feedback about the content and software on this website. Then we have a private email conversation, which often contains information that would be of interest to other people. I've always know a comment system would be a better way to handle this, but I didn't want to deal with spam. I have a reasonable solution now, so comments have been enabled on this site.

I went with the usual (imperfect, but good enough) solution to comment spam: CAPTCHAs. I know we all hate those images of text that are hard to read, so I have a few other types of CAPTCHA, like basic math and word problems. If you answer incorrectly, you will be presented with another random CAPTCHA, so hopefully it will not be too annoying.

Any new content that I deem comment-worthy will contain a link at the bottom of the page where you can leave some feedback. I will also dig through the existing content and enable comments where appropriate.

NOTE: comments are no longer available on this website. I may look into having a commenting system again in the future.
