A quick Perl script, and I now get e-mails a few times a day if I have new writebacks. That was one thing that concerned me a little was the possibility of people leaving comments that I never know about. That problem is fixed before it begins. I have even gotten an actual response now, from my friend Shannon. Thanks dude!
I tried to figure out what the hell a trackback actually is. Even after reading the description, I don’t quite understand them or why they matter. They come for free with the comment leaving system, so it doesn’t hurt anything them being there but I wouldn’t have gone to any effort to add them for their own sake.
