Sorry about the crash!

By
Real Estate Technology with ActiveRain

We went down for a few hours this morning.  We're using pretty bleeding edge development tools on this site which is part of the reason we can crank out new features so fast.... well - one of those tools just bit us pretty hard.  Apparently the code we're using for the new search stuff we put in last week is, um, not so stable.  :)  

So - we've pulled the new search stuff for now, put back in the old not-so-great search we used to have and will try to figure out why the new search stuff killed our server.

Sorry about the crash!

Glad to see it was so short a down time, especially after the amount of invites I've sent out. We are growing in IL!!

Keep trying the new things - improvements are worth the occasional panic we get when we can't log in to ActiveRain.

You mean these interruptions in our access aren't part of some conspiracy to let us know we're addicted to ActiveRain???

Seriously: technology is great... when it works!

And I had to write two contracts and do four showings on a new listing.

 If I am not careful my production level may go up if AR goes down again. Thanks Bryant for tiding me over with the "Phlog" this morning.

Didn't notice - but had it happened during my timing - I would've gotten other stuff done. Blogging is addictive.

I'll take my 25 ... but I also have a suggestion. You have all posts - no ads as a separate search. Is it possible to have a segregated search just for listings, by state or overall or even on the agent's profile where we add ourselves without filling up the blog?

If in time the general public finds agents on active rain through the search engines, it wouldn't be bad for them to see the listings as well.

At this rate of growth you will need more servers soon anyway.

Oh man Jon,

"It was horrible, my entire reality shut down, my office looked like something out of lord of the flies, we didn't know what to do.... and it just got ugly.... we ate one of our agents!!! Please don't make me go through that again!"

Now that is funny...did the agent taste like chicken?
