Blogging from BBEdit, redux

I’ve been having blog problems the past couple of weeks. My script for publishing from BBEdit has been working fine when publishing new posts, but it’s been throwing errors when updating posts after editing. I’m not sure what has changed.

Quick invoicing emails with MailMate
