New Recent Comments Module Thingy

Just a little technology update here... as I had done last week to the Macau Trip Blog, I've added a "Recent Comments" module thingy to the right side just under the "Latest News" listing.

I made a post on MT about the reason why which goes sorta like this:

One of my favorite things about many blogs is the "Recent Comments" listing in the sidebar. Very often folks post great comments to older posts that most of us don't go back and re-read. As a result, I cobbled together a coupla lines of code that grabs the latest comments posted with links to the original post.

Due to the fact that all of our stuff is coded by hand, from scratch, the hard way, by me, at ungodly hours of the night, each little piece of functionality requires more than downloading and installing software plugins. The positive side of home brewing this stuff is we can do whatever we want and there's also less of a chance that we'll be exploited by internet worms and whatnot.

Certainly not earthshattering technology, but I hope that this helps all of us keep better track of conversations that we're interested in that might otherwise get lost in the fray.
