Talk about field testing :-) Thanks for the follow up. Just as an update, I was able to upload a photo ... from my desk at work. I have Wi-Fi turned off so that Google doesn't cache my location every 5 seconds. Maybe forcing it through 3G allows the login to work? Why would that make a difference? -- Jevanyn 14:34, 3 May 2011 (EDT)

  • Hey, sometimes the opportunity presents itself. :-) Well, when you first had the issues, what sort of connection did you have? Wifi, 3G, or EDGE? Were you out in the middle of nowhere where you wouldn't expect much in the range of a data connection? I'm trying to figure out if it SHOULD be reporting a connection problem but seems to default to "bad password" instead. CaptainSpam 17:15, 3 May 2011 (EDT)
  • I don't remember where I was the first time it failed. It worked great the first couple of times I used it to post pictures, but after the update it stopped working. Maybe I was trying to send it from the geohash, but I'm rarely far from a cellphone tower in NJ. When I uploaded the latest batch of pictures, I was home (where I get 6 bars) and at work (5 bars and a couple of wifi hubs nearby). I'll try to pay attention to connectivity the next time I use it from the hashpoint. I also haven't tried updating the text, but if pictures work I'd expect editing the narrative to be fine. -- Jevanyn 10:29, 5 May 2011 (EDT)
