I have no clue and even less interest in what is going on behind the scenes on beta.blogger, but I am confident that the folks working on beta.blogger know what they are doing, and I will be patient.
I am just a tiny bit puzzled why it was that for a short brief time I did get ecto and beta.blogger to communicate with each other.
I checked the beta.logger issues, and then the ecto support forum, and indeed “ecto is not compatible with the the beta Blogger released a few weeks ago. Not sure if the old Blogger’s still around, but it should work with that.”
Earlier this afternoon I tried posting via ecto to uncondition and nothing happened. However posting from Firefox works rather well and here is the result.
UPDATE (22.09.2006) I am starting to be more than slightly inconvenienced by beta.blogger’s breakdowns.
Here is a view of what happens when I try to access it from FireFox. Not a pretty sight.
UPDATE (22.10.2006) I just do not give up, I like comfort when it comes to blogging and the most comfortable browser based blogging that I have found is Performancing. Here the first successful post that I made after I followed the good advice of BotHack. Next to PFF in terms of comfort is this here WordPress browser-brand somewhat independ tool.
Functioning technology is a bit like good health, when you have it, you do not think about it.
