Comment Permalinks: Let me know if you like this solution. In the default theme you can link to a NewsBruiser comment by referencing the time it was posted: here's one of Zack's posts. Older entries don't have this feature in the static files because I haven't rewritten the static files yet.

I have no idea why I tried this before and found it really difficult. Either I fixed the problem while doing something else, or I was trying to have the permalink be the ordinal of the comment (which might change if comments get deleted) instead of the post time. I'd rather have a human-recognizable anchor than one that would be ambiguous if two people should happen to post comments in the same second.
