What's up with comments?

The comments have been going strange. Leave a comment and it doesn't appear for an age, but you can see it on the "Post a comment" link.

When a comment is posted, a set of files are copied from the servers at blogger.com in the US to my web host server in London. It only tries once. If that attempt fails, the comment is stored until it has a new reason to try connecting again, such as another comment or a new article is posted.

You may occasionly see me leave "Delete me" comments. This is just me prodding the blogger.com server to try sending the files again.

So now you know.
