I can't post to my blog from external applications - Something Is Broken | Google Groups

After I transferred my blog to blogger, my posts stopped working. I did some investigation using wireshark (an excellent application) and could see that blogger was returning a posting id that when Windows Live Writer (WLW) tried to access returned a 401 not found error.

Turns out that there is a bug or feature with blogger that if you make more than 50 posts or changes in 24 hours, it starts returning bogus ids...! (glad I wasted all of those hours trying to work out why it wasn't working :|)
