Google Friend Connect - My final goodbyes...

So that's the last of my websites updated to remove all references to Google Friend Connect...

RIP Google Friend Connect

I don't believe how much time it's taken to remove GFC from the websites I maintain! My html skills were less than mediocre when I added all the GFC stuff and untangling it all has been a pain.

Not that my html skills are much better than mediocre now!

Still, I've managed to get it all done in time for the deadline of the end of this month (Feb). What a shame that all the wonderful interaction from my friendly and loyal followers over the last 3 or four years has all gone :(

I just wish that Google had provided a way to transition to another system like Disqus or similar. But they didn't and I feel rather let down in that respect. So for the record, these are the websites that used it:
So if you were one of the ones who interacted with the commenting and rating system on any of the above, I guess I should apologise on behalf of Google.

So long GFC, it was nice knowing you...

(Of course, it'll still work on blogger blogs such as this one, just not on sites that aren't blogger blogs)
