Argh, something is wrong with either Dreamhost or Blogger, because I’ve not been able to successfully publish my neatlinks since Sunday morning. (23-Aug-2005)
I think Dreamhost may have updated their systems in such a way that it’s locking out some SSH/SFTP connections. My Windows-based ssh client (SecureCRT) won’t connect, but my SFTP client (WinSCP) works like a charm. Commandline ssh clients seem to work but Blogger bombs with the following message: 005 Unable to connect to SFTP server: Auth fail.
I’ve been back and forth with their customer service all week, and it was not until I pointed out that my problems coincided with their announced OS upgrade did they begin to take me seriously. This may warrant a longer followup post later depending on how/if/when things are resolved. As it stands, Blogger is still unable to SFTP to my Dreamhost account. And I’ve got a week’s backlog of neatlinks stuck in web application purgatory. (0 comments)
Neatlinks are FINALLY back. With no help from Dreamhost or Blogger. I had to set Blogger to publish via insecure FTP *and* change the directory locations to relative instead of absolute paths.
As you can see, I continued neatlinking over the past week (in the dark), and there is some good stuff in there! Feel free to check out the August 2005 archive and scroll down to Monday August 22 to see what I found interesting on the web last week. (0 comments)
