Maintenance, Tonight @ 1am (Tuesday, April 21 08:00 GMT)

Here we go again! We’ll need to take down the site for some database upgrades tonight at 1am PST (that’s 08:00 GMT). We’ll be doing everything we can to keep you from going through blip withdrawal. The update should take no longer than 2hrs, more likely less time than that.

This push contains a pretty significant batch of updates. I’ll post a longer entry talking about the changes once everything is live. But as a little teaser, you’ll soon be able to blip from a much larger music pool with more reliable playback. So there will be more relevant tracks and less “unavailable” songs and 30 second clips showing up in the search results. We also added a one-stop-shop integration service that’ll allow you to broadcast your blips to a ton of external services.

I have to thank everyone for sending us your feedback. We read all your emails and even though we might not be able to respond to everything, we take it all into consideration. Thanks for making my job awesome.
