I did a nerdy thing on my blog

Attention, attention…

Before I go out and brave the 90+ heat to walk to the gym, just wanted to let y’all know I’ve added a cool but subtle new feature for commenters: when you paste a link from certain popular video/image/audio sites into your comment, the link will automatically convert accordingly into either the image or video/audio player.  Just make sure the link is on its own line and not hyperlinked, and if it’s one of the supported embeds, it will convert once you publish the comment (you can see a list of supported embeds here).

I did this to provide an easy way to add images in comments without drawing on using my internal media library (which would have gotten too messy).  So if you have libraries of funsie photos at sites like Photobucket, Flickr, etc. you’d like to share every now and then, have at it.  This new feature won’t be that patently obvious, but then again that’s the point, as only my regular commenters will realize they have the ability to do this (a not so subtle hint that you should comment here more often, tee hee.)

This announcement has been brought to you by my awesomeness, and the 80s:
