AwesomeStart is now running on brand new, shiny, expensive GoDaddy servers. The move took place yesterday, and everything seemed to go pretty smoothly. This will hopefully put an end to all the downtime we were having last month. Thanks again for sticking with us as we made this move!

In the last DevLog we mentioned getting the RSS up before we moved the servers, but we were having so much trouble with outages that the move became the top priority. We’re still working on RSS implementation, and hope to have it done by the end of the month. Currently, we’re looking for a way to fit the feature into the preferences panel. We want that page to remain simple and uncluttered, but as the site grows it’s starting to get pretty full.

One option under consideration is an “advanced” preferences panel – it would allow more “advanced” users to go to a separate page to change even more things on their theme – add more links, add a feed, etc. There’s lots of ideas floating around right now, and it’s really just a matter of trail and error until we find the one that fits.
