  2. Oh, by the way, is anyone else having a problem of the numbers for the comments being cut off by the left side of the comments column, or is that just me?

  3. I think it’s a Firefox-vs.-IE CSS issue. I see it sometimes on Firefox.

  4. The increased number of recent comments is much appreciated. It was one of the things that attracted me to Alas over other feminist blogs: I could see at a glance who was debating whom. If I saw that there was a long alternation of two commenters I particularly liked/detested, I’d click on it at once, regardless of the main post. I’m sure I wasn’t the only reader to be drawn by this, and it amazes me that more bloggers and blog designers don’t appreciate its appeal.

  6. Unfortunately doesn’t allow that kind of structured comment panel. 15 comments is the best it will do.

    No problems viewing it in Konqueror.

  7. Obviously, I agree that the way the “recent comments” on Alas are structured rocks. Unfortunately, doesn’t allow us to choose our own plug-ins (not even if we pay for the advanced version), so that’s not an option here.

    I’ve suggested a few times that we should consider moving to a new home, where’d we’d have more options — mainly, I’d like a “recently commented posts” option, rather than just a “recent comments” list. But no one has seemed really enthusiastic about that idea, and I’ve felt too low on energy and therefore unable to live up to my promise to take charge of such a move. So probably we should just live with the limited options here, because staying here is so effortless. 😛

  8. When it rains, I can’t fix the leaky roof. When it isn’t raining, the roof doesn’t leak.

  9. We’re Now at 44. So are we just growing and growing? Or do we shrink during the intervals when we’re not on the page.
