When Apple announced the new Retina MacBook Pro I thought I’d died and gone to heaven. Thin, light and powerful plus there’s that amazing “Retina” screen. What more could someone ask for at $2,799?
Well in my case, I ask for twice the RAM (16GB) for an additional $200. Then there’s the processor which is fabulous at 2.6GHz but I’d always wonder how much faster my video would render with that extra 100MHz so another $250. The stock hard drive is a hefty 512GB SSD, which was enough for me since once my video/photo is edited, it all goes back onto my Drobo. Since it is 100% non-user repairable, I have to add AppleCare, $350.
The total, after tax, is now $3,911.83. Luckily I have a situation where I can get it for about $700-1,000 less, especially if I drop the CPU to 2.6GHz. That’s still a lot of cash and in the end, is the Retina MacBook Pro the best option? Continue reading →
Sad about it but my Disqus is still not working properly. Only maybe a hundred or so of the comments actually imported. As you can see in the screenshot below, the “latest” fourteen comments came in over the last two years.

Disqus Comment Moderation Panel
So, where do we go from here? How do we get the missing 1,500 comments imported? How do I active posting a comment on an older post? Yeah, another problem I just came across.
While I’m sure this is just a setting issue, I sure can’t find it. That option is unchecked in WordPress and I don’t even see it as an option in Disqus. Help? I don’t want to poke and poke Disqus but I’d really like this to work. I’m pay for Disqus, I like the platform that much. But if this is how it’s going to work for, maybe I’ll look again for another option. JS-Kit Echo? Any other suggestions of where I should send my comments should Disqus never work properly?
