It’s still Saturday, so I think I’m still allowed to talk about geeky things!

While browsing through Dive Into Mark I came upon a link to Adam Kalsey’s SimpleComments plugin, which combines the commenting and TrackBack functionality of MovableType into a single interface. I haven’t used TrackBack much in the past, but this is probably as good a sign as any that I need to start.

So: all future posts will now accept trackback pings, and I may go back and enable them on older entries. The trackback URL will be available in the comments popup boxes as well as the individual entry archives pages. Speaking of which, does anyone know of a fast way of doing that? My poor wrists are already aching in anticipation!

Also, I need to thank Kevin Shay for his incredibly useful Compare plugin, which saved me from a big old mess of my own making.

The night is still young! Who knows what else I’ll implement before it’s all over?
