E-lert Overload

January 23, 2009

My apologies if you got 100 new mission alerts – We did change the underlying algorithm to send a few more alerts out – Got a few more than we bargained for, I’m afraid. It will slow down soon, and next week, we’ll be able to stop it going quite so mad

Be alert (because you country needs lerts)

We’ve not been sending enought alerts out. So now we’re sending out more. Same old algorithm, but with more people on the list!


Upgrades

January 20, 2009

I’ve put in a new fix today which will hopefully improve the Facebook notification function. I also found in passing 168 missions that haven’t been properly broadcast, so the system is churning through them at the moment – Sorry if you get a few more notifications than usual over the next few hours!


5 pesky letters

Had problems starting a mission? That’ll be because we have been unwittingly discriminating against people with no profile photo!

Hopefully all now resolved


Faster?

December 23, 2008

I’m taking advantage of the slower period over Xmas to make some improvements that I hope will speed up the resonse time. At some point I hope to work out why my address book feature is stubbornly failing to work as well

First potential outage in about five minutes!
