GSM #178 Shortcut

Posted 27th of January by Reine Brand

Hi guys! So, I wanted to ask you a couple of questions -

First, how do you feel about Disqus? We've been using them since GSM launched, but from next month, they're giving publishers an ultimatum between advertising or paying for the service. I tried the advertising briefly, but it's real bottom of the barrel stuff, and difficult to improve even with heavy customisation. I'm considering paying for the service, but it's not really cost effective for our amount of traffic.

Second question- would to be okay with using a custom comment system on this site? It'd probably look pretty similar to Disqus, you just wouldn't be able to log in with the same profile.


Greasy Space Monkeys is the adventures of two idiots in a dead end job on a run-down space station.

Occasional profanity and frequent absurdity.

Hi from the Airport
Posted 2018-04-25 by Reine

Hey all, sorry for the lack of updates the last few weeks. Preparing to go to the USA has been so hectic that I haven't had a day spare.

  I'm writing this at Sydney International Airport. It's literally the first ten minutes I've had free this week. I've brought some files though, so I'm hoping in the downtime I have between Alaska and Seattle I'll be able to make an update. Thanks for being so patient this year , I appreciate it :)

 I’m so nervous/excited/ possibly phasing into another plane of existence about this trip. So that's a thing.

Anyway, the best way to get little updates of what I'm up to is through twitter - @reinebrand Thank you all for the food suggestions, I may hurt myself but it'll be worth it ;)
