Things continue to be busy, but I’m doing my best to make time for this site and my various projects. At long last I FINALLY installed Disqus to manage comments for the blog and software posts
Best of all, after a few frustratingly productive hours of hacking the Disqus API, I managed to import all my Sitefinity comments into Disqus! This was actually a fun project, but man was it a pain in the ass trying to hack that poorly-documented, unfriendly API.
I have every intention of publishing my work, most likely as a module in the Sitefinity Marketplace. However, because of the time, effort, and (mostly) frustration, I might depart from tradition on this one and attach a small price on it. The project is too specific to be of use to everyone, and took way too much time that my wife would kill me if I just gave it away.
For once, I agree. No one is a bigger proponent to free and shared software than I, but every now and then, it is nice to be tangibly rewarded for one’s work, and this one is one I am really proud of.
What do you think? It’s not set in stone, and I guess I’d just like to get a feel for just how much of a demand there is for such a tool. Share your thoughts in the new Disqus comment box below!
