Software Update at 11am

Real Estate Technology with ActiveRain

In order to improve the responsiveness of ActiveRain, we are doing a software update at 11am PST.  We generally wait until the night to make any software changes, but we want to improve the responsiveness of ActiveRain as quickly as possible for our members.  The process should take 10 minutes or so.

If you are working on ActiveRain at 11am PST, you may be logged out and you may lose any unsaved blog posts. 

Thank you all for your patience! 

We'll keep you updated as we make progress.

Updates are always good. So does that mean we are expecting lightening speed connections now?

Did you realize that Jingle Bells Rock is still playing on your blog post site?  Christmas starts earlier every year but this is a little too early.  Thanks for all AR does for great improvements!

This is good to hear.  I was gone so it didn't really bother me.  The long log in times were bothersome.

Thank you so very much.  Very quick fix to a very slow problem.  Maybe Ruby went off the rails?  So very much better this evening than it has been!

I noticed the curtain when I tried to get on earlier and thought it was a nice idea.  I hope the problems are solved soon.  My speed in posting comments tonight is still very, very slow.

I just thought that I would pass on that I am getting extremely slow responses with spell check and when submitting comments. One time I even got a message "Bad response from server".  It wasn't nearly as slow yesterday.

I hate to be a complainer however the platform seems to be very unstable. I am constantly waiting minutes for implementation. Most of the time I'm getting pear shaped...
