We've updated the advanced text editor tool so work better for MAC users. It should work fine in Firefox and IE for MAC now. Safari is still not fully supported, but a Safari -friendly version is in development.
We've changed the way news appears in the control panel and at http://www.bandzoogle.com. You can now see an archive of all our changes in the last year. The news is also syndicated so you can subscribe to it if you use a newsreader like Bloglines.
Yesterday afternoon at 3PM Eastern time, a power supply died on one of our database server computers. We were able to diagnose the problem and replace the power supply by 5PM. Unfortunately, the changes affected our email server as well. The ability to send and receive email was intermittent until 11PM when we finally resolved all the problems. Emails sent to you between 5PM and 11PM last night should have been stored and delivered today. If you sent a mailing list mail during the database error yesterday, it likely was not sent and should be resent.
The good news is that because of the problem, we have added another server to our system to handle problems like this in the future, so the "downtime" will be much reduced.
Thanks for your patience during a very hectic afternoon. If you have any questions, please email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the past, you may have noticed that switching templates would cause a mix of the old and new versions for a few days. This was a problem with your web browser storing the old versions of the page and not updating to get the new ones.
Eli just fixed this "bug" so that your browser will always get the latest version of the site. If you notice any other bugs or problems with your site, please let us know by emailing us on the HELP page.
