Many failed uploads, anything I can do?

Asked by BrendonD on 2008-04-04

I started using the rescuetime uploader in Linux earlier today and I've got 8 files in ~/.rescuetime/failed, and 1 file in ~/.rescuetime/finished. I've had no internet connection problems that I know of. My Dashboard shows very little data.

Is this a problem? Is there anything I can do to get the data uploaded, or to help out diagnosing the problem?

FYI: I'm running it from the command line because I'm using XFCE.

The files in the failed folder seem to be missing the following tags at the end of the file.


Every failed upload except one has the same last line in the file:

  <attribute name="window_title" type="string">My Document Name - Writer

Maybe the uploader has some trouble dealing with OpenOffice? The other failed upload had Navigator at the end of the last line, which is part of too. Is it getting something from OO that it can't parse maybe? Try running Writer and see what you get.

Hmm, I'm not having any problems with From looking at the code, it seems impossible for it to fail at that exact point, between printing the window title and printing the "</attribute>". It should either print the whole <attribute> line or none of it. Could you try the latest version and see if the problem persists?

I'm currently using version 63. Did 73 just come out? I thought I had the latest version. I'll try 73 and see what happens.

I'm getting the same thing happening with version 73.

Is there a .py file somewhere that I can put some print statements in or something, to try and figure out what is going wrong?

I've moved this to a bug so that I can attach a file. Please use bug #215964 from now on to discuss this problem.

Can you help with this problem?
