We’ve got a scheduled maintenance window of approximately 2 hours this evening at 9 PM PST. Here’s a quick rundown of what will be new and improved once we’re back up:
- 1st round of Facebook integration - push blips to your Facebook profile using Facebook Connect. The next round will have support for finding friends and deeper integration from the Facebook side of things.
- Improved services interface - we’ll tell you when there’s connection issues with your integrations.
- Changes to our contact importer scripts to prevent accidental sending of mass invites.
- A smattering of bug fixes.
We’re going to start sending out newsletters soon as well. The initial one will be the first of what will become monthly installments. We’ve also got plans for other small emails such as tips and tricks for how to get the most out of Blip.fm. In preparation for this, we’ve added a preference for newsletters on your settings page so make sure to update that if you don’t want to hear from us on occasion.
