comments 'temporarily' switched off

this morning we received notice that haloscan is changing their commenting service to a paid service.

while we've enjoyed having the haloscan commenting system installed here for several years and have no complaints about it -- comments are simply not important to us -- at least enough to pay for.

so we've removed the haloscan code and plan to reintroduce comments if and when we find a commenting system that we like.

google/blogspot commenting system is pretty lousy and we dont plan to use that again.

we've noticed that some bloggers like c.b. forgotston have never allowed for comments and we might adopt that policy as well.
