MAL conduit has stopped working, so gracefully that it believes it is working. AvantGo shows no record of attempted syncs after the failure, so I suspect either a local permissions problem or an AG-side server settings change.

Troubleshooting to date reveals naught. As far as I can tell, I can’t even set up a verbose capture of the server-comm dialog, which means I’ll have to figure out how to do it manually in order to rule out that problem. What a giant pain in the ass. Is it even worth doing? Do I really care if I can’t read the Times in teeny bite-size chunks as I ride the bus?

I guess I do care, because I’m so angry and frustrated. But that seems to be more from aggravation surrounding change than a specific need to have a tiny version of the newspaper. I’m mad because the light switch suddenly stopped working, not because it’s dark and I need a light.
