The Comments Are Always Open

In case you didn't know, you can comment at any time on any post here at Ruthless Golf.

Some blogs shut down comments after a couple of weeks. I can understand that, as many blogs deal with "popular" topics - that is, things that are hot for a few days or weeks, then fade away. But with Ruthless Golf, the material is mostly instructional and therefore not likely to be dated anytime soon. A post that may not be particularly useful to you right now may suddenly become very important a few months down the road... and you may find you have questions.

In case I don't catch it myself, I've got the blog set up to notify me by email when a new comment has been posted. So if you have a comment or a question, go ahead and add it on. I usually catch it within a day, unless I've had problems.

Thursday (10/15/09) is a classic example. I woke up to find my computer wouldn't boot. It took me most of the day to get it fixed; apparently Microsoft sent 16 different patches out, and something screwed up the boot sectors of my hard drive. After several attempts to repair the problem and a quick trip to see the Geek Squad, I was able to get the system fixed. When it finally came up I found that the post I had set up Wednesday night for Thursday had the wrong date and didn't show up as planned. I fixed that, then found Brian's comment on the last post about coiling from a week ago.

So don't hesitate to leave a comment or question, even if the post is several months old. I'll find it.


  1. Please explain to Brian that 'coiling' is illegal in 21 of the 48 contiguous states...

  2. Hi Mike! How's it going? Have a great weekend!

  3. Vince: No prob, pal... Brian lives in Canada. It's considered a "green" method for staying warm up there. (But I think it's still a bit racy for most Canadiens; I heard a sitcom based on it got cancelled "for reasons of moral indecency...")

    Apryl: Much better, thank you. The computer's behaving itself now. A bigger question is this: How are your beloved Dodgers doing?
