Julie at SexyMagick asks for someone to explain trackback and how it works. I've left a short explanation in her comments, and hopefully this post will show up in her trackback for that post.
Update 26-Aug-2003: The Cartoonist wants in on this game too, so I'll link him and see if he gets a trackback link. It doesn't look like he's been having much luck in sending trackback pings.
Update 26-Aug-2003 #2: The Cartoonist did not receive my trackback ping. I re-edited this post and put his trackback url into the "URLs to Ping" box. He didn't get that trackback ping either.
I did some digging around and figured out where Radio stores the results of trackback pings - they're stored with the blog posts in weblogData.root (weblogData.posts.[postNumber].trackback.outbound.urls.[urlPinged].errorString).
In the trackback data for this post, the trackback ping to The Cartoonist has this error message:
"Can't open stream because TCP/IP error code 10060 - Connection timed out."
It would seem that Radio's trackback is down for the time being. As I write this, trackback went totally offline.
Update 26-Aug-2003 #3: Okay it's 5 minutes later and trackback seems to be working again. Let's see what happens....
.....okay, trackback itself seemed to be working, but it would not re-ping The Cartoonist's blog. I deleted his trackback url from this post in weblogData.root, re-published this post, and he got my trackback ping.
