Today’s Forecast: Brief Delays With An 80% Chance Of Cusswords
So, earlier this week, I wrote briefly about the soon-to-be-launched community site for quirkipreneurs, and said: “With any luck, we’ll be moving into the live beta by Friday”
Well, Luck abandoned me for some hot dude in a firefighter’s uniform. Turns out? The software platform I’ve been working with simply isn’t suitable my long-term plans, and I wasted a lot of time over the past few days trying to find workarounds (I’m stubborn. I was sure I could *force* it to be suitable) Thus, the delay, and the cussing.
Apparently, I need to start over with new, persnickety software. Dammit.
But instead of making you wait another 4-6 weeks for your discussion area, I’m settling. On Tuesday, I’m going ahead with the beta on the current platform. You’ll get a taste of what the future holds, have a private space for getting input from the community for your own projects, and we can work together on the development of the full site that’s in the plans.
Why Tuesday? Because it’s my birthday weekend (Yay! I’m 29! Again!) so I have prior obligations that will keep me away from the computer. And launching a beta program when I’d have to leave Emmit in charge doesn’t seem like a good idea, does it?
