At the end of September, David Runciman interviewed Ian McEwan on Talking Politics. Their conversation about McEwan's two most recent books was so interesting that I went and bought both almost as soon as I got back home from my walk. I wasn't disappointed.
A little while ago (on 19 October, to be precise) someone mentioned commento.io, an open source commenting system for websites. It looked interesting, so I tried to leave a comment on the post that mentioned it. Despite a few problems with login, I managed it, and asked whether Commento could play nicely with webmentions. No reply there, but I also took the matter up with support at Commento.
Today I got a reply. It didn't really address the login point, but did speak to Webmentions:
For the past three weeks, I have each day downloaded my website's access log by hand, at first literally, using FTP, and then, after a couple of days, with a command to do so. And each time, I would go look at the file and change it's name from access.log.0 to access.log.yyyy-mm-dd where dd is actually yesterday's date. The point of all this is to try and get into a position to make use of a neat-sounding analytical tool called Bise (see Seeking satisfaction in statistics).
