Moved to Disqus Comment Platform

I’ve moved the comment platform for my blog over to Disqus.

Why – well here is what Disqus says:

Key benefits for Commenters, Readers

Let me know what you think and if you have any issues.

So what is up with the ads?

Some of you may have noticed I’ve added Google AdSense ads to the site.

And some of you may be put off…

So why did I do it? Well the long and the short of it is, I’m bootstrapping a startup – cosinity – and income is sparse… and as you can see the little one’s get cranky if they are not fed regularly.

I’ve tried to keep the ads as inconspicuous as possible – but if you happen to want to shop for say a GPS, please do so by clicking on the ads in my blog.
