Sorry, folks. I’m not overly fond of captchas, but I had to do something to stop the flow of comment spam. I’ve installed a small captcha widget called reCAPTCHA that asks you to type two words before you comment. The upside is that by using this one, you’re helping to confirm words that have been scanned to digitize books. You can read more about it here.

I hope this is just a temporary measure. Thanks for your patience, and please do send me an e-mail at danicanada (a) gmail (dot) com if you have any trouble with it!

Yay! I didn’t know the CAPTCHA program using actual words was up and running – hurrah! If we have to have the stupid things, at least it does something good, right?

I mean kinda neat.

That was a brain dead moment, wasn’t it?

Or maybe I just wanted to type more words!
