In the two weeks since I've installed Disqus to run a better, more efficient commenting system here, they've had two outages that have caused commenting to be completely down and previous comments to temporarily disappear.
You can imagine how happy this makes me.
I apologize to anyone who has been wanting to join the discussion on Monday's post, and all of the multitudes of people who I know are just itching to weigh in on the bacon cake debate. (Or maybe two of you.) Anyway, Disqus claims they are "working on the problem" and "hope to have it resolved soon". So, I think we can all be reassured that it will be up and running at some non-specific time in the near or distant future, and then will likely go down again in about a week. Hooray!
Thanks for your patience!
