I tried upload using Oauth Echo but it failed. “Connection reset by peer” is the message I got by the call.
Oauth Echo upload was successful on TwitPic, and I only changed api key and endpoint in my upload method.
Is there anything else I need?
( I omitted “message” parameter, which was not problem on TwitPic )

I will have a look at it. Could you mail me your API key at timan@mobypicture.com?

Is the ‘services’ parameter (as seen in postMedia) available when using the upload method?

When using Twitter OAuth echo, what if the user does not have an account with MobyPicture?

    1. Enlightenment Now Steven Pinker Found it very difficult to read. And I didn’t finish it. Pinker tries to be very eloquent in every single sentence. Couldn’t finish more than one chapter at the time. There are quite some interesting pleas in there for liberalism, but it didn't stick with me. I think that the […]
