Soft Launch Success

Software Development | March 29, 2008

A big thanks goes out to all who've checked out the site and glanced at my three attempts at article writing. I've thought of doing a couple more articles but feel my time is probably better spent getting FS up so people who've actually got talent can get in and do their thing but we shall see. Bay has also jumped on to do some caffeine related writing and some general testing which has proven to be a great help. Who would have thought there would be so many bugs?

Development is still on track and the bugs list has been cleared for now. The mid April beta launch is still in the cross-hairs and I've slipped in a couple of extra tasks including the tiny one of moving the site to a new hosting provider ...eek. This will mean a much better service (in theory) and hopefully less technical issues. I'm sure I'll mention more about the move in the coming months.
