MovableType is great, but...
Every time that api.google.com times out (like now), MT decides that it can't build pages anymore. Therefore, I cannot post.
500 Can't connect to api.google.com:80 (connect: timeout) at /home/jzawodn/public_html/mt/lib/MT/Template/Context.pm line 1749
I know that's because I use the Google API search results in my pages, but shouldn't it just timeout and gracefully continue as if the call returned no results?
Yeah, I thought so. The only options offered are "Close" and "Go Back." Given that this stuff is all loosely coupled, it really ought to be designed to deal with failure--not just give up.
Has anyone patched MT to work around this problem? I'm sure this problem isn't specific to me.
This will get posted eventually, I hope.
Update: Yup, had to post this a day later.
