    I plan to use it, but all the integration points I want aren’t done yet. When they are I’ll switch over in a heartbeat.

    Speaking of comments, I always click “add video comment” here instead of submit and the tab order is messed up. You should give ID a spin. 🙂 Spam protection for free, too!

    I have had nothing but problems since installing IntenseDebate on my blog. Currently, no one can leave messages on my blog. I have contacted ID technical support and they don’t quite seem to know what they’re doing! I’m not saying this to be vindictive, but simply to warn other bloggers away from IntenseDebate. It’s more trouble than it’s worth!
