Upgrading our server

Sunday, June 3rd, 2007

The time has finally come for us to upgrade to a more powerful server. We realized that the host we were using would not be able to handle our requirements, considering our current growth rates. However, the last few weeks have been quite painful, as we’ve been transferring our databases to the new server. Unfortunately, the transition has created a few problems, but we’ve been able to solve most of them. Currently, we’re trying to figure out how to send our emails past the spam filters. If you are an expert in email servers, we’d really appreciate your help!


First blog post

Saturday, June 2nd, 2007

Max and I are excited to launch the Stickymap blog.  We’ll be using the blog as a forum; we want our users to be able to communicate in a friendly setting and keep on top of our progress.  Please feel free to leave comments and offer suggestions.  The next few months are going to be quite exciting, as we’ll be launching our Beta version by October 1, 2007. 

It is hard to believe that the Stickymap project has been live for over a year. And in that time, the website has been visited by thousands of individuals who have shared special locations in their neighborhoods for all to see.  We never imagined that the website would become so popular, and we can not wait to release new functionality and a new interface by October 1. In the mean time, we’ll be launching different features piece meal; as we receive feedback, we’ll refine the components.

Over the next few weeks, we’ll keep you posted on the progress of our technical development as well as what is causing us trouble.  If you have questions or want to help us complete a task, do not hesitate to reach out.

Thanks so much for all of the support,
