I wrote this stuff while hiking the Keep Cool trail, mostly to test out the WordPress App for my new iPhone. When I got to the lunch place I was receiving a good signal from the Mount Baker Ski Area so I decided to try publishing it. Complete wipeout: couldn’t tell what happened, whether saved or not, nothing. Now I cannot do anything with the iOS app – get a message “Couldn’t sync; Sorry, you cannot edit posts on this site” – iPhone is now a brick as far a WordPress goes.

But it did apparently get saved to WordPress since it was in my account (the one I “cannot edit”) when I got home, where it says “Draft saved at 5:06:50 pm. Last edited on June 22, 2013 at 12:30 pm” which is about right. Strange app.

Where I put the word “pic” I intended to include pictures I was taking on the phone, which would be cool. But isn’t.

  1. Well, I got four or five messages on my iPhone yesterday, which I didn’t see until I got to the end of my day. I sent an answer to you but it turned green, meaning that it was sent as a text message and I’ll be charged for it. I don’t know why it did that. Too bad about the pictures not working right, but really, Al, you are so far ahead of where I am it really makes me want to find out about that H2O business you’re using.
