Why can't blogs do notifications to commenters? (partly rhetorical question as I can see how complex it would be to make it work without annoying people)
I've started to follow a few more blogs and I do post the odd comment from time to time (not really one for posting comments for the sake of it). The thing is, I like to see what people say in response to, or to follow up on my comments. This means I have to rememebr which blogs I commented on, which posts on those blogs and check each one for any updates. And I really suck at remembering. WLR forums have the exact same problem (and that's a forum so it really should do that kind of notification, dammit!).
So, if you post something in response to a comment I've made somewhere, don't be offended if I don't follow up. It's not personal, I probably haven't even seen your response either 'cause I suck! (OK, so some web journal providers give the journaller the option for notifications like that, but not all and the method is clunky too)
Also... (mm, whinge-tastic today!) My quads, palms and ankles huuuuuurt. *pathetic* We put in a reasonable time for the journey Northwards (3 hours 30 for 74km partly urban, partly undulating countryside [600m of climb in total] and unsurprisingly a bit longer on the way back - 3 hours 50 for the reverse route). I clocked up 7,200kcals for last week's exercise total and went over 650km so far on my new bike. This week is taper week. Today is a rest day. I need it!
