Minor site update: switching to Disqus

Finally, years after the behest from Phil to upgrade the blog's commenting engine, I've made the switch to Disqus. It was pretty quick and painless to do too, so now I'm kicking myself for not doing it sooner. The unfortunate thing is, I lost a large chunk of comments -- everything beginning 2016 till now :(

Comments prior to 2016 appear to be in place based on a quick spot check. I tried to import all previous comments of course, however, I don't think the migrator tool could talk to G+ or something. I'll continue to investigate if there's a way to recover them, or if you have any suggestions let me know in the comments below.

I made the change for a couple of reasons. 1) Blogger stopped notifying me of any new comments for I don't know how long... sorry if I missed any or late responding!
2) Google+ comments lack basic moderation functions -- I couldn't delete a spam comment, really G+!?!

But I mostly made the change for Phil ;) Hopefully this will make it easier for everyone if I end up posting anything worth discussing, haha. Cheers!
