Still Waiting

It's been a long time since I posted anything here and that is because there really hasn't been any updates with the BlogRoll system. They are still in development of their new software and we all patiently wait. Almost patiently anyway. I still have lots of ideas for this place but most of it hinges on them getting the system back up and running... which hopefully will be soon.

Their update site has this as the last update, posted on Jan 14th:
More More on BR2

Hardware was installed and tested the week of January 5th as promised, now we’re just waiting on delivery of the final code. We ran into some UI issues and made a decision earlier this week to simply go with the old UI rather than try to jazz things up and protract the outage.

Our developers are working on the migration tools now to get your old data into the new system. With some luck, I’ll have a concrete relaunch date Friday coming, or possibly Monday at the latest.

Keep your fingers crossed with me, I will post more as soon as I get word back from the team.

Well my fingers are crossed, and my toes... Are yours?

I'm not sure if the system will be coming back online. I've read a few things on some other forums questioning what's happening with that system.

Who knows what'll happen at this point. They've been down for a very long time, but they do remain hopefull that they'll be back. I really hope so because their system is unique. I'm not sure what we'll do without it.

Arrrg. The vapour trail is fading, eh? I hope they're, you know, still alive and all.

I hear ya. It's been a very long time since there's even been an update. I hope they're still working on it.

I've been looking for alternatives to the system, but there really is nothing out there. I'll probably post about this effort soon, in hopes that we can get some help.

Either way, I hope we don't have to find something else. I want BR back!!
