We're not even trying to kick off here with any real subject matter; this is a test post to get working with the new comment system.
A new thing upon launch: Commenters must be registered with Disqus ("discuss"), the new comment system provider. They accept all kinds of other logins, including Google, Yahoo and OpenID. You'll see the options upon clicking on "Comments."
Nice feature: Unlike our old system, Disqus promises to remember your ID on future visits – no more logging in each time you comment. That's the promise, anyway.
And there's more. With registration there will be additional benefits, new directions, etc. More on that soon.
