Entries for December, 2004

Just a reminder that our sale on paid accounts ends tomorrow! We'll sort out the free accounts to give out once all paid accounts are settled and then hand those out.

EDIT: We apologize regarding the broken usericon and gallery issues; we just found out our data servers just maxed out their hard drives! We are working to add new servers quickly. We've had to temporarily disable image addition for free users but we will restore that feature shortly!

Thanks for your understanding!

Update: We've restored all gallery features for all accounts. Thanks for your understanding. All usericon/gallery problems from the past few days should now be resolved.

Thanks to all who participated in the Tabulas sales; I'll let the deal go until tonight at midnight (EST) for any stragglers who want in. Get them now while they're cheap!

As for the status of Tabulas, I apologize at the lack of news regarding Tabulas. Work has been going on behind-the-scenes for the upcoming Tabulas 2.0. Tabulas 2.0 is a rewrite of the whole Tabulas platform and will take advantage of a new templating engine, a better control panel, and a few new features (nothing huge). I have been working my butt off on the new version now, which is why support ticket requests have largely gone ignored. I apologize.

In any case, I'm looking to launch 2.0 within year's end; this will fix up ALL nasty issues with Tabulas *and* allow for better control over templating issues. Some select users have been beta testing the new control panel, and they absolutely love it (although it's kind of buggy at the moment) due to its ease of use and general lack of suckiness.

There was downtime a few days ago with the image gallery servers due to the hard drive being filled up on our data servers; I have since added another data server to help handle burgeoning growth.

The big news here is that I am going to be moving servers around and revamping the Tabulas network to be more robust. This will result in some (hopefully) minor downtime as I move services and data around from server to server. I will notify you through this journal when the downtimes will occur.

Yesterday, one of our servers was compromised through a Linux kernel exploit. I am working to make sure this does not happen again.

Thanks for your continued support, and I know Tabulas has been a pain in the neck the past few weeks; please stick around for the next few weeks so you can enjoy the fruits of your suffering with 2.0!

I'd also like to take this moment to thank everybody who paid for a paid account over the past few weeks. I have had some personal issues to deal with, and the money made from the sale paid accounts will be used to purchase new servers and create a more powerful, secure Tabulas network. Thanks to everybody!
