Technical Problems

Filed under: — Different River @ 6:59 pm

You may have noticed over the last few weeks that I’ve been blogging a lot less. Part of that is due to a heavier load at work, but part of it is due to the fact that about a third of my posts disappear into never-never-land after I click the “save” or “publish” button. So far I’ve lost a post about the Hamas election win, the Democrats’ reaction to the Cheney hunting accident, an FDA ruling, and a few others.

I don’t know what the problem is, but typing the post outside the WordPress web interface and pasting it in doesn’t always solve it. Sometimes words get deleted (say, three words in the middle of a sentence, or a couple of sentences in the middle of a post), and sometimes the whole post disappears, never to return.

And since I usually type up longer posts at the end of the day, I rarely have the energy to do them over, especially when I did a lot of “keyboard thinking” and I know I’ll forget some major points.

Also, I could have sworn I checked and saw yesterday’s post on the hunting accident on the actual blog last night — am I dreaming? Did any of you see it before it disappeared?

Sorry for the inconvenience. But it’s mostly to me, so I don’t know who I’m apologizing too. Suggested solutions welcome.

(Hmmm, I’m about to click “publish” … I wonder if this post will make it!)

(UPDATE — it made it the first time — will it still be here tomorrow?)
