Tracking Those Comments

Post by blogger | February 3, 2009      

Well, we’re more successful than ever and the number of comments we’re getting shows it (thanks everyone). But along with that comes a problem. You leave a comment on a post, and before any of us (post authors and readers) see and can respond to your errudite prose it gets buried by a few dozen other comments.

We’ll probably implement some sort of comment tracking feature for everyone. But until then, quite a few services are available to help track blog comments. This guy blogged about some here — perhaps try one of these if you’re having trouble staying ahead of the WildSnow comment mania!

Also, our RSS comments feed is here:

    Out of left field is this question: What do people think of the B&D ski crampon locks? Yesterday I just kept the harscheisen in the pack and begrudgingly worked on my skinning technique courtesy of Martin Volken’s tome on such. By the way, get this book! It is fantastic for backcountry/ski mountaineering.

    Mark: why use crampon locks at all? I know this is a pretty much a matter of taste …

    People around here tend to totally disable the heel lift when the terrain gets so steep that you have to watch every single step. This does away with the “high heels” feeling and gives you solid balance. As a side effect the crampons are employed nicely. That way you get the comfort of hinge crampons and good utilization when you need it.

    Then again the sign of manliness here is to never use the highest heel lift setting, rather than breaking trail as steep as possible, as it seems to be at this very site’s origin.

    I just purchased a new Dynafit set-up with skis, boots and bindings. I was wondering about the ski leashes included with the bindings. I noticed there is a Left and Right and also the metal piece that threads through the metal loop has what looks like a tool function ( U-shaped end and screwdriver end). So can someone explain to me the “correct” way to wrap the leash around your leg/boot and exactly what the tool looking piece is designed to do?
    Thanks Million.
