Last night I decided to be 'clever' and change my comments system to Haloscan - for 2 reasons:
1. Because I have a low boredom threshold and like to ring the changes
2. Because a friend of mine has complained that he can't leave a comment without opening a Blogger account - T.K. - you know who you are!
It's dead easy, they do it for you if you have a Blogger account. Did I want them to back up my settings in case I wanted to revert to them? Well, I supposed I might as well - probably wouldn't need it though. Press the button and hey presto!
Only one problem - the comments didn't work and all my previous comments had vanished.
Panic! Chaos! Confusion! In the midst of all this I received an email and subsequently some helpful support from Gemmak. To cut a long story short and to bypass the muttered comments from Keith about being a blogger 'widower', 2 hours later, all was safely restored to its former glory. Of course, I should have remembered that Gemmak posted on changing to Haloscan comments only the other day and also had problems - but I didn't. Call it a 'senior moment' - if you dare!!!!
