BTW, I disabled comments here (on this post only) so they can all stay together in the same thread (the post linked to above).
UPDATE: Re-enabled the comments here as of 11/18. Seems after 25 or so they only showed up in the recent comments side-bar wiget, but not in the comments section. Feel free to keep it going here while I wait to hear back from Intensedebate.
And thanks all for keepin' real and keepin' it cool.
