I manually invoke Ping-o-Matic after I write a new post on TrenchMice’s blog. It’s supposed to happen automatically, but doesn’t — something’s amiss with our WordPress installation, and it hasn’t been important enough to debug.
Great service, every blogger uses it, and it’s worked fine for months. But I started to get either session timeouts, or the “Slow down, you’re pinging too often” page, starting about five days ago.
I informed the Ping-0-Matic powers-that-be. I did it via a comment to the most recent (but still quite old) entry on their blog, because I couldn’t find a contact address. I checked back a day later and my comment was deleted, but they never replied back. Maybe they already know about it, and I’m the Nth person to ask.
