Downtime apology and upcoming projects

[Tweet : ADN : nvALT]

I apologize for the recent downtime, which also affected the Clippable bookmarklet’s ability to work. Dreamhost has been pretty awful with downtime lately, and my attempt to switch to a different physical server resulted in a horrible mess for myself and several clients. I have to say that Dreamhost support was extremely helpful in repairing the situation… their support is the main reason I’ve stuck with them through the 4 hours of downtime I’d had up to that point. I’m not sure I’ll be able to swallow much more, but we’ll see if things run as smoothly as they’ve promised from here on out.

In other news, I have a new version of the Songza service–one that doesn’t require any additional libraries–which I’ll post soon. A couple of other little projects are in the works, including a service that interprets natural language dates for various purposes. I’m in Atlanta for a week, then I’ll be in San Francisco covering Macworld for TUAW, so it may be a bit, but I’ll be back!
