Thanks for the great website!
However, every single time I post a blog entry, I get a 500 error page when pinging other websites. The post goes up fine, but a 500 error page makes me think it has lost all my wonderful post. This URL gave the 500, if you want to dig through the logs:
Same here, although I've lost the URL.
In my personal MT install (4.35 Open Source) pings do timeout, but gracefully display an error, instead of throwing a 500.
