New 'Shoutbox' feature added in right column

Right then. You may notice I've added a new blog feature - it's a 'Shoutbox' (which I have cunningly renamed Bill's Mini-comment Area) and is displayed in the right-hand column. The purpose, apparently, is to allow me to add spur-of-the-moment comments quickly, without the need to go to the blog editor. It is very easy to set up and use, but I've yet to decide whether it is a useful feature, or just a piece of pointless gimmickry. I'll try it out for a few weeks, whilst I get the feel of it. Meantime, if you have any comments on this new 'vanity feature', feel free ...
(Thru no milk please - I tried to set this up some months back, but couldn't get it to work. However, the set-up procedures seem to have been simplified enough so that even I can follow them!)

UPDATE: (Tuesday 31MAY05 22.35 BST) In response to a Guestbook comment, I've amended my 'Shoutbox' to allow visitors to comment as well. Of course, I hope I'll be able to leave it open to comments, but some common sense will be needed to allow this to happen - no porno links, no abuse, etc. Message understood? Cheers! - and comment away (-;
