Yes. I believe that the default conky installed via Ubuntu repositories does not have XMMS2 support built in. You can tell if you run the command 'conky -v' in Terminal. If you see XMMS2 under 'Music detection' section conky supports XMMS2. If it does not, you will have top build it with the '--enable-xmms2' option as discussed in the post.

In my experience, the switch between Disqus and ID has been easy, if you use WordPress. Since both the services also keep all comments in the native WordPress system, you should not lose any comments. Only problem I have come across is that, if you have threaded conversations in your comments, threads may not stay intact when you switch.

I ran into that a while back, and I don't remember if it was ID->Disqus or Disqus->ID switch. There are good chances that it has been fixed since.

If you have worries, I would contact ID support to get the latest status/facts.

egor4eg, thanks for the input. I'll sure try it out.

I wrote the AJAX experiment a while back, when I was unaware of jQuery. If I rewrite it, I'd probably use jQuery. jQuery has made my recent work very fast to implement, efficient in execution, easily compatible across most browsers.

But the experiments without jQuery were educational, and necessary to appreciate the value of libraries like jQuery!

IntenseDebate allows you to use, Facebook, Twitter, OpenID, WordPress.com or IntenseDebate credentials to comment. I haven't used them all myself, but the ability is there.

I am glad you found this helpful. You have lovely blog, by the way. I spent a lot of time reading it, and I intend on spending more in the future!

Isn't it nice to have alternatives! I would agree that Disqus seems to be more widely used. Although, with the variety of ways both ID and Disqus provide to sign in and comment, I am hoping that not having ID/Disqus account will not keep visitors from participating in the conversation.

Ray, thanks for pointing out. I was experimenting with the comments location last night. For some reason, the Location would not go back to Normal. As of now, it looks like this is fixed.

I wrote to IntenseDebate support when the Location setting change was not taking effect. Looks like it takes a while for the Location setting to take effect - unless someone at IntenseDebate changed it for me!

After I made this blog post, I found the Opera forums. I figured that would be a direct way to pass on this feedback to the Opera community and devs. Here's a link to the forum message - which also has responses from Opera devs.

From what I remember, all I did to enable Twitter and Facebook login was to enable that in the Blog Setting on my IntenseDebate dashboard. And you mentioned you already did that. So I am out of suggestions!

I would contact Michael Koenig at support@intensedebate.com (or @mkoenig if you use twitter). He's pretty quick on support.
