We've improved the db hardware and are working on the application now. Sorry for the brief restart. We normally give a heads up for those.

Happy Friday, cheers! Yes, this extra might seems like what we needed to make it through this weekend looking good.


We have longer term plans to scale better as we grow -- we are at about double the monthly users we had last year at this time -- so that next time we get to a breaking point, we can be more responsive. Thanks for all your patience.

And speaking of speed... I know with the recent server issues, few have had time to move through the site and see all the updates -- mostly all fixes, a few enhancements, one new page -- that have been made. We recently unlocked Hero Mode for the web site -- basically, a new process where all site fixes are fast-tracked -- and fixes have been happening at more than 10x the prior pace.

Also some good news is that I was just looking at this year versus last year monthly rating counts and August was a record month for us in terms of new ratings. Additionally, we had about twice the number of visitors year to year as well. It was likely this amount of growing activity and related server strain that caused the performance issues we had, which is why after all the tinkering and troubleshooting, we found simply improving the servers was the fix we needed.

Any way to get rid of the constant pop up at the bottom of the mobile web browser to download the mobile app as I have already downloaded it?
