OK, it's time.
I have made no secret of my disdain for Typepad. (Of course, it is my fault for having chosen them in the first place.) But at long last, the new Malcontent is ready to rock 'n' roll. So please reset your bookmarks accordingly.
I missed my self-imposed deadline of migrating by June 1 by about 20 minutes, due to an 11th-hour database meltdown mostly of my own causing. But hopefully it will be worth the wait.
Malcontent.biz offers many improvements over our churlish Typepad overlords, including:
- A dynamic menubar
- Gravatar support in comments
- Numbered comments
- One-click comment emoticons
- RSS feeds for individual comment threads
- Automatic parsing of URLs in comments
- One-click translation into eight languages
- A weighted "category cloud"
- And a "shoutbox" powered by Ajax technology (doesn't require browser refresh)
And more will be coming soon!
But again, please reset your bookmarks, and please bear with whatever glitches we have at the outset. (If you encounter any problems, please email me.)
Soon I will rejigger things here to automatically redirect you to the new site. But for now, you're on your own.
