calling Andrew Coates

Posted Mon, May 23 2005 13:45 by bill

So I was reading Andrew Coates blog entry about the keyboard hanging in VS.NET 2005 Beta 2 and I went to reply to it so as to point him to Bill Vaughn's blog entry on the subject.... you know the typical smart a*s post saying "well if you subscribe to Bill Vaughn's blog you would have known that already"


Alas, my sick sense of humour was thwarted as Andrew doesn't have "his ears on".    Maybe comments to his blogs have just been too brutal in the past ?? Or maybe he's use to a blog being something everyone needs to sign in with passport... nah, surely not.  Seems weird not to have comments turned on what ever the reason.. 


So Andrew.... What up with that ?

They seem to have had trouble over at MSN since the change of Blog engines. I let someone know that their comment system was off and they had no idea about it. It seems that his comments system is working, did you let him know via that?

His comments are off, but the trackback seemed to work. So I think it might be the skin he has. And yeh, that "upgrade" to community server from .Text broke a lot of things, and still is unfixed. The one I hate the most is comments appearing as "anonymous" even thoguh they weren't.

Hey Andrew,

Cool. Good to see the pingback worked the trick smile
