October Update

I know... I know... I know... I've been gone for a while. It's not that I didn't want to, but there was just sooo much going on this last month.

 

Dobandee's Found a New Home

I finally moved all my websites, including Dobandee, from 1&1 to Hover. It was a scarry move, but I knew it had to be done sooner than later. With it I also had to find a new mail-host, so I looked around and ended up with Office365. Once I was done with everything and thought we are all set for some actual product development, Heroku crapped out on me and got me so annoyed, that I actually decided to also move my web-apps to somewhere else. So after some more late nights, everything is now running on my managed server, hosted by Linode. And I can't tell you how happy I am, that it's all done! I know for some of you that's just geek talk, but bottom line is... Even though nothing really looks like it changed in the last couple weeks, a lot of groundwork was done in the background that will pay off in the days to come. So thank you for your patience!

 

Growth and Media Coverage

Honestly, I was expecting Dobandee to catch on quicker. I know that it's currently just a landing page and little is shared so far about what Dobandee actually will do, but still, considering the success stories of other landing-page only services and products out there, I hoped for a bit more. On the bright side, I'd be in much bigger trouble now, if it had caught on and I had to transfer domains, apps and stuff; I probably would have post-poned it and in the end done it much too late. So... yay!

Nevertheless, Dobandee now has a few more profile pages ...

... and also got featured on a couple sites:

There's a few more, where we still wait for approval.

 

Alright, talk to you soon... promise!
