State of the Shake
Hey! Another one. Let’s see:
DNS outage this week: bad. New DNS server coming: good! That was unpleasant, but it was partly our service’s mistake, partly my own dumb mistake for setting the TTLs (time to live) so low. You can think of TTLs as a note to your browser* when it should update where to find our IP address. Normally you use a cached version and ask for an update every so often. We were doing some DNS work and I set it to such a short time that the second our service had a hiccup, nobody could find the site. On the plus side, with such low TTLs we were back quickly.
Spam is still an issue. I thought I had them licked but they keep figuring things out. Onward!
What is next: we have many things planned but are always interested in hearing what you have to say. Please let us know what’s important to you and what isn’t working.
We‘re adding people at the fastest rate since our launch. That means you guys are telling friends about us and sharing images on Twitter or Facebook. Thank you so much for that. We love you guys.
* I know. Easier to explain this way.
