Comments are/can go here! at last!

I've finally had time to develop and test my comments system. It went through a couple of incarnations before the final 'released' version, but at least it's finally here.

You can see the comment section below, and now you can actually use it. I've added a couple of comments myself in the past but that was usually directly into the database, now I can use the comments form too, yay :o)

You can put URLs into your posts, and they should be automatically converted into hyperlinks but they will have rel="nofollow", so there's really no point in trying to spam me.

You have to enter the test from an image like on most places now... I didn't want to do it, but I had to. I initially designed a different approach, using email verification and simple passwords, but I decided that hardly anyone would use it if I made it 'complicated' to write a comment (ie. if you had to do anything ontop of writing the actual comment)

Let me know what you think of my comment system on this post, and any replacements you'd like and I'll see what I can do.

About the author

Portrait of the author

On weekdays I'm a Technical Lead at Comparethemarket.com, having previously been a Solution Architect at Nokia & Nokia Siemens Networks, creating creative software solutions for mobile operators around the world.

In my spare time I'm an avid new technology fan, and constantly strive to find innovative uses for the new gadgets I manage to get my hands on. Most recently I've been investigating Mobile Codes, RFID and Home automation (mainly Z-Wave). With a keen eye for usability I'm attempting to create some cost-effective, DIY technology solutions which would rival even high-end retail products. The software I develop is usually released as Open Source.

I have a Finnish geek partner, so have begun the difficult task of learning Finnish.
