Problems with us

Now that we managed to pass off the blame to Twitter for some of our issues we should take some blame ourselves. We were down for the last 24 hours or so because we forgot to put a file on the server that was needed to generate the sparklines. That really should not take 24 hours to fix. Our apologies to everyone who is checking us out.

That said we should let you in on what we are thinking. We are developing on the production site which means you get to see all the gory details and often broken features as they evolve. We will do our best to make sure things progress positively with each update. However, until our “grand opening” expect everything to be in a very alpha state. Right now the hashtags bot is relatively stable so if you do use hashtags in your twitters they should be caught (assuming twitter sends them our way). So feel free to tag your posts with tags you have registered.

Looks like Twitter is having problems with the ‘track’ command that we’re relying on to make this site work. Once Twitter gets that stuff figured out and we can count on receiving all messages we want, we should be good to go. In the mean time we’re going to keep plugging away and adding a few features. If you know who we can contact about the stability of the tracking feature, please let us know or leave a comment if you have any suggestions.

We’ve contacted Twitter and Aaron is working on getting them a log of the results of tracking terms. We seem to get a little bit of the tracked messages, but unfortunately not all of them. We’re working to solve this problem. Odd.
