The death of this blog

I discovered last night that Flickr stopped allowing me to post photos to this blog.  I’m not sure exactly why this happened.  I erased the link in my Flickr account and tried to re-add it.  Didn’t work.  It kept claiming that my username and password were invalid.  This despite the fact that I can obviously log in to the blog itself with them.

I started suspecting that it might have something to do with the fact that this site uses WordPress 2.0.2.  The latest version of WordPress is 2.6.  So, I tried to upgrade.  Well, that didn’t work.  Must be too many intermediate versions…things are hinky.  Luckily, I backed up the old version files and was able to reinstall them.  But, of course, that didn’t solve the original problem: not being able to post photos from Flickr.

The only solution I’ve been able to come up with is starting another blog.  So that’s what I’ve done.  It’s not completely set up yet, but I’m working on it.  All new posts will go there.  If I can figure out a way to migrate all the old posts here to the new blog, I will.  I might have to ask around on some WordPress forums.  We’ll see…
