I apologize to those of you who may have seen a lot of test messages pop up in your Slumberland RSS feeds lately. I’ve tried to delete them within a couple of minutes, but some of them might have gotten out anyway.
Basically, I have been having problems with the WordPress posting process generating errors in Safari (“NSURLErrorDomain:-1011”) and also not sending pings out to the sites such as weblogs.com that keep track of which blogs are newly updated.
Restarting the web server has fixed it for the moment, however, I don’t expect that to be a permanent fix since the server’s been restarted several times over the last few months and yet this problem has been going on at least that long.
So there may be more test messages to come, but hopefully the problem won’t reappear for a while.
