I’m going to log this problem just so we remember it.
12 Jan 2006 – I noticed that writing a post never returned. And I thought it was a server problem.
13 Jan – In discussions and rooting around in the options I discovered the removing the pingomatic link in options cleared up the problem. Looked like Pingomatic was down. I could not reach it’s website at http://pingomatic.com, but the service would answer a TCP/IP ping.
14 Jan – I checked again and ping answered the website, so I put info for my site into that page. And then I re-installed http://rpc.pingomatic.com in the write options and the post worked correctly.
I’ll log other issues with pingomatic here.
