Welcome to the new kinnon.tv

It’s a little bare right now as we move into our new digs. I’ll be painting the walls, adding the furniture and making it a little more habitable over the course of the next couple of weeks.

I apologize that with the transfer, the threaded comments from TypePad no longer thread – which makes some of the conversations rather confusing. Newer comments will thread, however. I’ve asked the good folk @ Foliovision, who took me through the TypePad to WordPress process for some help in this – and if it can be fixed, it will be.

  1. Glad to see you’ve made the switch. Love how fast the new site loads!

    • Just wait ’til I’ve slowed it down with Flash and plugins and all kinds of customization…

      Actually, I do look forward to keeping this site a lot more lean and mean – unlike what the TypePad hosted version had become.

  3. Try using the disquis plugin to manage your comments. Should be able to thread them all that way (even the old ones).

    Oh, and welcome to the cool kids club. 😉

    • Thanks, Aaron. We probably should have done that at the TypePad site first, I’m guessing. Sigh.

      And yes, this will be the only cool kids club I’m every part of, methinks. 🙂

    • Hi Aaron,

      There’s always someone to come along and suggest doing something stupid with one’s website.

      Bill has just paid a round sum to safely get his eggs out of SixApart’s basket. Why on god’s green earth would he want to be foolish enough to confide them to Disqus?

      Slow loads, unwieldy sites, lost comments, bad syncs, poor SEO. The pain is endless with Disqus.

      People have just commented on how fast Kinnon.tv is now. One of the main reasons is that Bill doesn’t have external javascript hell, i.e. Disqus as a main offender on board.

      Moderating WordPress comments is much easier with our Thoughful Comments than with Disqus in any case.

      Golden rule for long term happiness and success on the web: do not hand out your core content to external companies. Self-host.
