I have third-party hosting for this site, so I wasn’t effected by the recent WordPress outage, although my hosting provider had their own shut down for a few hours recently. The real problem had been that I couldn’t upload anything using Google Chrome for Mac. It’s extremely annoying to have to open a whole new application just to post anything.
Fortunately, everything appears resolved at the moment. I upgraded to WordPress 2.9.2 and the whole thing is just honky dory. Even using Chrome. Time to try some new extensions?
