Well, it's been a _really long week_ for us here at Gone Raw Headquarters.
As many of you are aware, a combination of *horrible events* conspired on Monday morning to bring our little site down. We had wind storms, we had power outages, and those who host our website made a small mistake as well!
Worst of all, our best minds couldn't figure out how to fix it all for two days. Literally - we had three ace programmers giving it all the time they could spare, and it still took that long. Luckily, we *also* found a bunch of little bugs to fix along the way, so now Gone Raw is back and *better than ever.*
We apologize with all our hearts for this horrible inconvenience, and will do everything we can to keep this kind of thing from happening again. Thank you for all of your support.
We have a couple of exciting announcements today. First of all, congratulations to "yammygirl":http://goneraw.com/account/show/2532, our 2000th member! Second, we would like to thank "our first sponsors":http://goneraw.com/forums/5/topics/1748. Thanks partly to their support, we're able to spend a little more time working on the site this month.
Which leads us to our third announcement - "better recipe printing":http://goneraw.com/forums/5/topics/1761! This is probably the most requested feature of all, and we hope to have more time in the near future to keep improving Gone Raw for everybody. Thanks!
It is an exciting time here at Gone Raw. We've just passed our 1,000th recipe posted and Ray and Kandace are heading to London for a design festival this 15-26th. A huge thanks to "Vaughn":http://goneraw.com/account/show/80 for helping out while we are away!
Thanks very much to the good people at "Joyent":http://joyent.com/, who host the Gone Raw site, we have fixed our problems with the website going away for hours at a time. Boy, that was no fun! Well, no worries, it's all fixed now.
And just in time - we've just passed the 800 recipe mark and have more than 1500 users. Now that we've got our kinks worked out, we hope to find more time to add new features. So stay tuned!
Summertime is upon us and, here at the studio, our garden is brimming with collards, chard, parsley, strawberries and sweet peas! We've also just put out our "latest newsletter":http://goneraw.com/email/GoneRaw-06-18-07.html highlighting some of our favorite "summertime recipes":http://goneraw.com/recipes/list/summer. What are yours?
Hey everyone! If you've had any troubles signing up over the past few days, we wanted to let you know that it's *all fixed*. We've got all our little issues sorted out, due to our move to a new web server, and everything should be smooth sailing from here on out. Enjoy!
Over the past weekend, we moved Gone Raw to a new hosting setup. In the process, our mail server broke on us, which means that *you can't sign up for an account!* You can try, but you won't get the all-important "confirmation email." So it won't work.
We apologize with all our hearts for the inconvenience. We will have this sorted out in the next day or two, so *please* do check back. We'll let you know just as soon as it's fixed. Sorry!
Thanks for your patience, everyone - Gone Raw has finished our move! We’re on the new web server and faster than ever. We should also stay online all the time now, and not vanish for an hour or two here or there like we were.
We hope you like it!
We're excited to announce that, due to all the growth in the last few months, Gone Raw has outgrown its hosting plan! Tomorrow afternoon (Friday, June 8), we're moving to a new host. It might take anywhere between 2 and 48 hours before you see Gone Raw again. Never fear â€“ weâ€™ll be right back, and better than ever.
