Newsletter released! More servers Max Out!
Did you miss the newsletter that went out yesterday? Then you missed a big event! I gave away something for free that it cased some major complications! By the way, you can still get it for free – just by signing up. Also, when you get the Welcome Newsletter, I suggest you go click on Newsletter #21, which is the most recent.
The newsletter usually goes out about 6 AM, and I kind of expected everything to go smoothly. I was wrong! I woke up… got my morning green tea latte… walked into my studio here and was bombarded with support / tweets / and email issues! We maxed out our servers in about 10 minutes. It turns out that not only was everyone clicking away, but they were telling their friends and everything. So, it was a long morning trying to figure out what the heck happened and talking with a bunch of techs and our support team to get to the bottom everything. Anyway, we’ve now upped the limit to 30,000 free downloads a day, so this should help. And for those of you that had problems, you should have received another newsletter today with links to get the freebie. Enjoy!
Other goodies in our monthly (more or less) newsletter:
- Details on upcoming events, giveaways, and inside info
- A digest of the best photos of the past month, in easy-to-see and easy-to-forward email
- You’re helping to prove Jason Calacanis wrong and beat his newsletter… he’s wont to making snide comments to me on Twitter, and I’m very competitive about these things.
Daily Photo – Ensnared in Flame
On my first evening in Barcelona, I dumped my bags in the room them went right out to explore. Unpacking is so boring… let’s face it.
I started going down side-streets and back alleys to where I heard activity and motion. I was more or less zig-zagging my way to Las Ramblas, where there’s always a lot of activity. But I didn’t want to go right there. During the weaving, I found this enormous cathedral nestled between a square of classical looking Spanish buildings. A performer had lit a unique homemade contraption of flames and was whirling it about. I got back behind her and set up for this shot.
