Still having problems. Signed out of Sunlit on my iPhone just test I could sign back in and I’m getting the same XML-RPC error. Micro.blog for iOS is still working, so I’m not signing out until I can figure out the problem.
There’s a first time for everything. This time it’s Salsa @ Blackpool Tower Ballroom
Missed out on pancakes yesterday, so I’m making up for it with a pancake burger today @ Roper Hall, Preston
Drinking a Dorada Especial in the last of the sun @ Villa Toledo, Lanzarote
Market shopping @ Mercadillo de Teguise, Lanzarote
Oops! Broke the RSS feed and images moving from Craft to WordPress. Had to delete all the post from micro.blog and add the feed again.
Beer, hotdog and football @ Wings & Beer, Preston
So happy to see Oliver Reichenstein posting over at ia.net again.
