Comment system update

Quick update to this post: apparently, the change-over of the comment system is taking longer than expected, and it’s not really clear when it will happen. However, I’ve been assured that while some comments may be temporarily lost, no comments should be lost permanently. Thus, consider regular blogging resumed.
