We just got done moving to the new server. It took 1 hour 50 minutes from start to finish. (We didn’t start until a little after 2am EDT). If you notice anything weird, please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we’ll look into it right away. Thanks again for your patience while the site was unavailable.

We are currently planning to upgrade to our new server tonight at approximately 1:45am EST (Friday April 11th). The site will unavailable for about 2 hours while this move is taking place. I’m sorry for the inconvenience, and thanks in advance for your patience. Everything should be back to normal by 4:00am EST. You can check our twitter account for status updates: http://twitter.com/trixietracker.
We just deployed the latest Trixie Tracker code which brings big improvements to our site back-end and coding environment. At this time, most users should not notice any real changes to their sites. But the new code allows us to work faster and easier, so you will start noticing visible changes and improvements soon. If anything isn’t working right for you, please email email@example.com and we’ll get on it asap. thanks for using TT!
From a user’s perspective, I know there haven’t been many signs of Trixie Tracker development lately, but we have actually been grinding away behind the scenes. We’ve been working on a big, back-end code clean-up that’s going to make it faster and easier for us to work on fun front-end things like design and features.
We’re planning to move the new code out Saturday night if all the testing goes well today. I’ll post a notice to the site when it’s time.
Please note, this is not really a feature upgrade. I’ve tweaked a few things that will be visible to users, but 99% of the changes are only apparent on the back-end.
I have also created a Twitter account to provide real-time updates about Trixie Tracker service status: http://twitter.com/trixietracker
If you ‘tweet’, please follow us. If you don’t tweet, you can subscribe to the updates with the RSS feed or simply visit our twitter page for information.
We are also moving to a new, faster server next week. I don’t have the exact date set, but I will post a notice when it happens. There will be some downtime with the code upgrades and server move, but I hope it won’t be more than 30-90 minutes. I will give as much notice as I can, and post updates through twitter.
Thanks in advance for your patience when we upgrade, and especially thanks to everyone for supporting Trixie Tracker!
