Mobile posting?

So, I tried to post to my journal using the mobile application at, and it appeared to have worked, but nothing showed up here in the blog. I even tried to submit my post a second time, and it complained about a duplicate post—but nothing has shown up and it's been well over an hour. So, it appears that the update is lost in the ether.

This is quite disappointing. First, it took me quite a while to type in a short, two-paragraph update using that tiny keyboard in the phone. Second, I'm going to be out and about for the next week and being able to post with my phone would have been quite handy, even if it was impossible to be a speedy typist. And third, just because I hate to use technology and then have it fail me. I'm just beginning to use a “smartphone” and it's all quite new to me. Having everything work as expected would make this a much better experience. (Fortunately, the fault is not the phone's in this case!)

Here's what would have been posted if everything had worked as expected.

NYC weekend

We're in NYC to attend the baptism of Steven's newest nephew, Teddy. The parents have to attend a class this morning and then will be visiting with an out-of-town friend for most of the afternoon, so we're planning to meet them for dinner tonight.

Since we're staying in NJ—just across the George Washington Bridge—we'll do a bit of exploring over here and then journey across into NYC for some shopping before dinner.

And ... it would have carried a short explanation that this was the first posting via the Blackberry. But it doesn't, because it isn't.
