more site updates

As of today we're using the TypeKey authentication system. While the last three or so releases of MovableType have been major bugfests and their docimentation is in need of massive over haul, I've been wasting increasing amounts of time trying to deal with comment spam.

So instead I wasted most of a day on dial up getting TypeKey to work. The Movabletype instructions are opaque and leave out half the steps,a nd you end up with your comments pop ups unreadable unless you reload/refresh (depends on your browser) them. Oh well. the sign in button is burried on the bottom...

for the time being, i'll leave auto authenticate on, if and when comments pick up again, i'll switch to moderated authentication. if six a part can't get their collective shit together i'm going to toss a coin between wordpress and phpnuke-or use email based comments, or unauthenticated moderation. this of course will lead to day or weeklong delays in comments being posted.

The bottom line for now is if you want to comment here you gotta go register with TypeKey.com. It's free and relatively easy.
