As a number of people have discovered, something is awry with the comments script on this site. Darn Movable Type software is apparently up to more of its usual tricks. When you submit a comment here it gets onto the site, but there is a long lag, and often an accompanying CGI error.
I’m looking into it, but I wanted to let people know. If only it weren’t so tough to jump to WordPress. Reading the comments over at TechCrunch on Mike and others’ move to WP 2.0 is enough to put me off — I just don’t have time for that kind of futzing.
