Good Problem To Have (Sorta)
Since the launch of our Folders feature a few weeks ago, we’ve been experiencing sort of a mixed blessing. We’ve had a significant enough increase in visitors that it’s caused us to pull our email announcement. See, we’ve been flirting with memory leak issues (nothing serious) on our application server so the last thing we want is tens of thousands of users hitting the our site at once. Though I’ve read that ‘your web application isn’t successful unless you’re experiencing scaling problems’ it still sucks that we aren’t yet able to properly announce our new feature to our entire user base via a ‘New Features’ email. We should have the problem sorted out in a few days but still
When you do receive the ‘New Features’ email please forgive us for having folders as one of the line items even though it technically isn’t brand-spanking. Wait a second… if you go to the ‘New Releases’ section of BlockBuster you’ll probably still see Ocean’s 11. Hmmm, I don’t feel so bad now.
