Admittedly, its been a long time since I tried to use Tripit, the handy travel itinerary planner site. Today I noticed that my Tripit widget on my phone wanted me to re-login, so I tried to do that. Didn’t work.
OK, maybe I have the wrong password, let’s try the web version. Password manager confirms I have the right password, but still no dice:
OK, maybe the link to the help page will explain this?
Well, that’s odd.
Seems to me there are four possibilities:
- Tripit is having a bad day.
- For some weird reason (unlikely to be my VPN since that’s set to a domestic location), Tripit wrongly thinks I’m located abroad or on a watch list / Treasury sanctions list.
- Tripit has decided that Florida is a foreign country they will no longer serve.
- I am on a watch list or a Treasury asset control list. (Would be news to me.)
I’m betting on #2, but we’ll see. I opened a ticket with Tripit, and will report back if I hear anything. Then again, if they think I’m on some list, maybe they don’t even answer help requests.
Tripit has decided that Florida is a foreign country they will no longer serve.
In fairness, I’m starting to wonder…
It’s personal. Tripit’s computer has decided that WeRobot is a threat to, well, whatever requires a “threat” to be on a watch list (whether or not it’s the official one). BTW, your VPN’s AE35 unit will go 100% to failure mode some time in the next 36 hours…
