Would it be possible to have the "Recent comments" device back, please? For a few weeks it's been empty, and now it seems to have disappeared completely. Without it, it's almost impossible to spot whether there are any new comments on all but the most recent articles. Thanks!

Thanks anonymous, the code broke and we're in the process of fixing it - hopefully it will be up again soon.

The code broke?

How can an abstract thing break?

Just go to the local coffee shop, pluck down a pizza from the sky and offer it to have some college student just "apply it."

This taking more than a weekend is just not reasonable.

(am I holding up the sarcasm sign high enough?)
