wish I could post

There’s an error on my blog’s host that prevents me from posting anything interesting, such as pictures. Sorry. (I’ve tried a few times over the past couple weeks.)

  1. I tried posting that I have new pictures on Flickr. (Check them out! They’re from Paris, France!)
  2. I would also post something about donating to the Libre Graphics Meeting (complete with a cute little button graphic). I’ve donated; you should too!

(The issue seems related to some over-zealous security software on the host that doesn’t like images linked from remote sites, it seems.)

UPDATE: Thanks for the quick fix, Myron! Things work again! Woohoo! (:

    I will attempt to rectify this immediately… I know I am a little zealous on the whole modsecurity issue :P.

    Just in case anyone wants to know the configuration changes which “appears” to make this little modsecurity error go away. These are the changes I made. This may not be the last all of changes, As I’ve had to make a bunch of little ones for subversion and roundcube, but… hey!
