Day one of apps and my big, bad, botcheroonie


    Wow. Go me. Day one of apps and I really had a big botcheroonie which took both The Single Dad Laughing App and the MemeCabin App immediately out of commission!

    There were way more people on the server all at the same time than what I ever expected at launch (that’s a good thing, right?), and so suddenly everyone was having issues.

    And, since my developers were all gone for the weekend, I took it upon myself to try and fix the problem.

    Long story short. I really shouldn’t have. Not when I hadn’t slept in over 48 hours. And not when I really had no idea what I was doing. Haha. Oh well, live and learn.

    I clicked one wrong button and accidentally deleted the entire site that serves the apps along with all of the images and databases. No, really. I did. And it took a lot of time, even more money, and a lot more sleep deprivation to get it back. But we got it back. And a huge lesson was learned.

    Anyway, that is why some of you have had to re-register for the app (sorry about that). That is why some of your favorites were lost (so sorry about that). That’s why you didn’t see any images or couldn’t register/login for about 13 hours last night.

    Haha. This whole app thing certainly does come with a learning curve. Thanks for being patient with me through my goof-ups. I take full responsibility for this one.

    We’re working hard to tweak the server to make it work beautifully with these apps when there are lots of people on them. We just weren’t expecting to have to do it this quickly, so thanks for your patience!
