Hurrah for Haloscan

Sorry, this is about blogging.

If you use Haloscan to manage your blog’s comments, have a look at the settings section: there’s some good stuff there under the beta tab. Goodies include anti-spam options and support for gravatars (picture icons), but the really useful bit is that Haloscan can now get blog post titles. So if you use RSS to keep an eye on your blog comments, instead of “thread 1117848958, post by X” you’ll see “thread: Hurrah for Haloscan, post by X”. That’s really handy if, like me, you get people commenting on year-old entries and you’ve absolutely no idea what they’re referring to :)
