Apparently the ping to is timing out, at least I just got that error on my post:

The request has exceeded the allowable time limit Tag: cfhttp

The Error Occurred in C:\metafilter sites\\contribute\post_preview.mefi: line 27

d'oh. Weird.

Yeah, I re-enabled the ping to using a different method, it just requests the ping update page, which apparently can time out.

And Metafilter started appearing in the changes.xml list the day after I posted this, so I guess all is now OK.

anita, I re-enabled that after I saw this post, thanks for reminding me about it.
