For some f—ed up reason, WordPress would give me a 403 error every time I tried to post something about access control lists. That last failed attempt at a post for this CCNA series was caused by the same problem: IOS command syntax in the writing. Really, I think that’s the problem. I can’t prove it for certain, but I can point to another WordPress bug that would do the same thing to people who wrote posts that included a couple of very common Linux commands.
So, yesterday after losing over half of what I wrote AGAIN, I copied and pasted my text to a word file first before producing that damn 403 error again. I reinstalled my whole blog twice, and the same error was being produced by that specific text. I didn’t have a problem posting other test blogs, or that other super long one I put up yesterday.
Anyway, enough ranting. Without further a due, here’s a link to the word file I wrote my notes into. Topics touched on are Advanced ACL’s and the Cisco Discovery Protocol.
Now….back to the mystery that is my day of trying to remember where I put that f—ing thumb drive!! Don’t you just hate it when you lose tiny stuff like that?
