Some News - Quelques Nouvelles

Hello everybody, sorry to be so absent from the blog lately.

I have been using a BlackBerry mobile device to connect to the Internet lately and do not have access to all the features we all enjoy on a regular computer (not to mention the screen is minuscule). I still check out blogs, but I can't comment, right now, especially on blogs using captcha (the spam filter). Haven't yet found a way around it.

Meanwhile, I just wanted to warn you that I may lose all my comments on this blog pretty soon.

I have been using a service called "Haloscan" for a long time now, but Haloscan notified me that they are moving to another platform and I must either 1) go to a paying version if I want to keep my existing comments on the blog, or 2) export all my comments for safekeeping (but then what do I do with them?!!) or I will eventually lose them.

I suppose it would be OK to go to a paying version, but I'm not even sure what it does yet, other than it's more integrated with many social networks out there such as Facebook, Buzz, etc.

I've looked into it a little bit and I'm not really optimistic about being able to migrate all my comments back to Blogger, just yet, so if you see all the comments disappear for a while, that's what's going on.

I have a few days (until Feb. 18) before they pull the plug on me (they gave us a very short window to get it done), so don't be too surprised if you come back and there is no comments at all.

Grrrrrrrrrrr.... don't you just hate it when you think you've got something all worked out and then, they go and change everything on you and you gotta reinvent the wheel all over again?!!!

By the way, if anyone of you still uses Haloscan and has figured out how to successfully import the comments back into the Blogger default commenting system, or has a better solution, would you please let me know?

If the commenting system on this blog doesn't work for a while, you can always reach me by email (on my profile) or on Facebook.

I just don't know at this point what I'm going to do.

Nope. There's no way to import your comment from Haloscan to bloger, yet...
Sorry.
I saved them while someone very smart figures a way out... I wont pay for the new haloscan stuff...

Tell Haloscan to assume the aeronautical position and take a flying leap...

Welcome back, even though it might be short lived. Hope all is going well for you. Have a wonderful week-end and Happy Valentines Day.

Export > Convert > Import. Programmer un converter pour passer d'un format a un autre n'est pas complique. Peut-etre que si tu googles, tu trouveras quelques bonnes ames qui mettent a disposition ce genre de filtre gratuitement.
