Turning Off Comments

I wish I didn’t have to do this, but the fact is that virtually every comment that is submitted on my site is spam. Until now I have manually screened every comment, but it is taking up more time as the volume in increases. And I get so few legitimate comments that it does not seem worth the effort. So if you are a real person, you can probably figure out how to contact me. But I am now working to disable comments everywhere on my site.

LyX – The Document Processor

This is a program I have not yet used, but it looks interesting. I had heard of it before but not looked into it, then a correspondent brought it up today. LyX is a free, program licensed under the GPL V2, and is available on all major platforms. Based on a quick look, it seems particularly suited to writing academic papers, and preparing them to be printed.

My correspondent, Morten Juhl-Johansen Zőlde-Fejér has produced a primer on this which you can read at http://writtenandread.net/lyx/. It looks interesting, check it out.
