There's one site I quote fairly often which I believe is hosted on MovableType. Whenever I attempt to use the article's trackback URL to reference my own, my own post never pings the other site. Am I doing something incorrect? I'm just pasting the other site's trackback URL into the appropriate box on the Blogware posting form.

Matt - You are probably doing everything correctly.
The issue here is likely that our server is sending the Trackback ping to the remote MovableType server, but the remote server is not responding. This is not that uncommon on the Internet, servers get bogged down and miss requests, routers fail etc.
At present, if the Trackback ping fails, our system does not attempt to try again later. Under development is a revision to our Trackback system so that if the Trackback ping fails, the system will try again later on your behalf to send the Trackback ping. When this "Trackbacks in the background" system is instituted (no time frame yet) you should experience fewer problems with your Trackbacks not being received.
