Difficulty posting a comment on Engagdet

I read an interesting post on the Engadget blog entitled "Toshiba putting 4GB, 0.85-inch mini hard drive into mass production" and wanted to post a comment, but clicking on the "Add Your Comments" button simply gave me the dreaded "HTTP 500 - Internal server error" error message screen. I tried repeatedly, but no luck. I even waited an hour and tried again. Weblogs, Inc. periodically has difficulties with their systems. Oh well.

In any case, here's the comment I wanted to post:

The question is when somebody is going to come up with a Lego-style snap-together packaging and connectors so you can buy a bunch of these little suckers and "snap" as many together as you want to optimize capacity and size for your personal interests. Stack them, layer them, "necklace" them, use your imagination.

That's the key: letting users determine overall packaging arrangements rather than vendors dictating it.

BTW, I tried emailing this post to this blog three times, each giving a prompt bounce-back from Blogger, before finally posting it manually.
