/dev/random now with comments

I added comments and trackbacks to the /dev/random via Heloscan.

I love the idea of Tumblr, and it’s bookmarklet makes is it really easy for me to rapidly post all kins of random shit that I find on the internet. I really like that it caches the images so my image posts remain relevant even after the original gets taken down, or the host implements some anti-hot-linking measure. But the lack of comments always bothered me.

Haloscan is not perfect, but it is a decent solution here. Comments are hosted on their servers, and their management panel offers me some control over who can post and what gets posted. They have spam reporting, IP bans and etc. Unfortunately it requires javascript so my lynx and elinks readers might not be able to post there. But then again, I don’t think that viewing a page that consists mostly of funny images and vids in a text browser is such a great idea to begin with.

So, this is the best I can do for now. Enjoy!
