We think we've solved the problem of the disappearing and the "You cannot comment again" comments. We upgraded the blogging software and unbeknownst to us there was an anti-spamming "10-minute delay between postings" rule in place. We've deleted the delay and that should solve the problem that some of you were experiencing today. Please let us know if you have any other problems posting comments.
Before blogging became all the rage, Tom was posting book reviews and Observations (essentially early blog posts) to this site. You can find the archives below.
