New comments system

| Posted on

I’m finally installing the Disqus comments system on the site tonight, and it may be a a short while before the comments are processed and put back. Don’t worry, I didn’t delete anything.

I’m winding down after a long auction tonight and one hell of a past few months. Developer sprints are tough when you’re the only developer. We implemented a fairly complete overhaul of the way the Purple Wave bidding system handles auctions in order to accommodate some of the overstock auctions we’ve been doing recently. The work is finally winding down, and I sincerely hope to be more of a presence on the website.

Chris “G” Goering had one hell of a blog post, and I hope you take the time to read it. Mason and I are excited about the new year and what musical possibilities it may hold. Trevor Burgess is activated again after having been off the grid for the last few years. Look for an acoustic show with the two of us at Bobby T’s on V-day in a few weeks. Lucas Maddy moved to Wichita and will be playing with us as much as the schedule will allow.

I’ve been a blogging fool over at auctioneertech.com, and that’s where I’ve been doing most of my writing lately. My auction tech blog was recently featured in the January 2009 edition of the Auctioneer magazine. I also started a podcast where I discuss what’s new and exciting as well as interview auctioneers and industry experts about auctions and auction technology.

I’m getting ready to head to Wichita tomorrow to the Kansas Auctioneers Association convention. It should be a fun time. I’ll be doing a fair amount of tweeting during the experience. I’ve become a huge fan of Twitter. Sign up for an account at www.twitter.com and follow me at twitter.com/traffas. The real-time updates and picture postings from the phone is pretty impressive.

That’s it for tonight. Hopefully this post will go through before Ubuntu Studio 9.04 resets my DNS settings again.
