Economics and similar, for the sleep-deprived
A subtle change has been made to the comments links, so they no longer pop up. Does this in any way help with the problem about comments not appearing on permalinked posts, readers?
Update: seemingly not

Idea for a DVD concept - "Star Trek - Virtual Girlfriend Edition"
OK, some of the previous sitcom ideas have been a bit ropey, but this one is pure gold for the nerd market.
Basically, it's an edition of the Star Trek DVD box set where as well as the usual commmentary track extras, you can select an option where a female voice periodically asks "Who's that? Why is he a baddie this time? What are diluvium crystals? Didn't she used to be in that other thing? This is boring. Let's watch 'Holby City'. Did you remember to put the bins out?" and such like. The idea is to a) give lonely nerds a little bit of the feeling of having some company and b) to remind them that having a girlfriend would certainly interfere with enjoying their Star Trek DVDs.
Initial test marketing to take place in Japan, obviously. I'm seeing Davina McCall for the voiceover, with an additional option for Jane Leeves.
