i've gone through the first 100 or so posts and restored the haloscan comments to those posts that had them (that is, i hid the blogger comments on those posts, which unhid the haloscan comments). so everything starting april 2005 should be fixed, but i might've missed a couple. restoring them is not an impossible task, but it's fairly tedious. i don't really feel like doing any more tonight.
now i'm going to look into reformatting my comment footer so that it's on a separate line. i'll probably do it if i can come up with a format i like as much as the current one.
