Track/Ping Testing

So a while back, Gatekeeper was discovered to silently kill off trackbacks and pingbacks without any notification, something I’d have realized if I had stepped back for a second to think about my coding.  So anyway, a solution was proposed, and I thought it fixed the problem.  Only it didn’t, possibly due to me being sloppy.  I’m honestly not sure.

So anyway, I think this time I’ve really fixed the problem, but to find out, I need to have people trackback and pingback this post.  That’s all; just hit this post with one or the other—or, heck, both. Feel free to make the link back to your site to your home page, your favorite post, your most recent post, your about page… whatever.  Thanks.

Oh, and if your attempt to *back the post fails, leave a comment to let me know.  If you see more than a few comments saying it didn’t work without a response from me, then don’t worry about adding another unless you have information that would explain why the failures are occurring.  Thanks again!

    Tracking Back

    I tried pinging with an arbitrary source and got the following reply: “The source URI does not contain a link to the target URI, and so cannot be used as a source.”

    I’m assuming that’s a good sign.

    Though my ping from an arbitrary URL that doesn’t link to you worked just fine (as it should, see the permathread spread through a couple dozen peoples comments about how Trackback’s semantics don’t imply reciprocal linking).

    I am a frequent visitor to your site http://www.meyerweb.com. On Friday I got the following message when I visited ‘Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL which is required for WordPress.’.

    If your site is really interrogating my system (which I doubt), you may be interested that I have the following
    Win XP Pro SP2
    Apache Server 2.0.54 (not running)
    PHP 4.3.4 (not running)
    MySQL Server 4.0.15-nt (running as a Service)
