Keeping busy

Sunday, October 30th, 2011

There are a few issues with the site at the moment that I haven’t had time to fix lately. The most important issue is that in some parts of the world the 2011-2012 season has started and it’s currently not possible for trusted users to sign up to do complete coverage of these championships.

I’m right in the middle of finishing a rather large project for my “normal” job and that has meant limited time to develop things at Driver Database. If things go as plan this project will be completed during this week and I can send out my invoice (woohoo, christmas saved!) and then have some time to fix things on the site.

After this issue is fixed I will be turning my focus on the next version of Driver Database – which will be a complete rewrite. It will not be totally revolutionary so it will have a familiar feel to it, but there will be a few new features and more importantly it will be better in every way! Once this project has started I will open the development site for the trusted users for testing, feedback and ideas. Together we’ll build the next Driver Database. :)

Downtime

The last couple of weeks have been shaky for our servers. This was out of my hands, thankfully, as it was problems at Driver Database’s server provider. Hopefully they’ve managed to sort things out so that these types of failures won’t happen again.

During this time the image upload functions at Driver Database seized to function properly. They are working again now but if you submitted photos to the site during the last week please re-submit them!
