The Karelia Blog
Sandvox users who are using the "Page Counter" pagelet may notice some strange numbers for the next few days. As part of Karelia's transition to a new server for hosting our website and services, we have just moved our database that records page views to its new location. This kind of change takes a few hours or a few days to propagate around the Internet. If you see the number "9999" for number of page views, do not panic — this is just temporary. Your page counts will be restored to their correct version when the server transition is complete.
Are you a savvy Mac/Sandvox user with a couple of hours of spare time each day to help other Sandvox users? We're looking for a friendly person to work as a contractor to perform front-line technical support for Sandvox.
Prior experience with technical support is not necessary; we have procedures in place that will make it easy to do the job. What is required is a thorough understanding of Sandvox, consistent time availability (about two hours a day, 5 to 7 days a week), problem-solving abilities, excellent English communication, and good skills dealing with other people (over email, using our web-based support system). Communication with the other Karelia folks would be done over email, chat, and voice; the support work can be performed at home or anywhere!
If you are interested in becoming a part of the Karelia team, drop us a line.
Dan was at iPhoneDevCamp this last weekend, where he got to speak with Blake Burris of CocoaRadio about TeleMoose (recently rated as one of the 8 coolest applications for the iPhone). You can check out the interview with Dan, along with other notable iPhone application builders, here.
We've changed the name of our iPhone project mentioned in our last posting: Its new name is TeleMoose and you can find it at TeleMoose.com. We'll have more news about it shortly, but we wanted to get the correct URL out there sooner rather than later.
Now that we have our iPhones in hand to put TeleMoose through its paces, we've fixed a lot of issues with the beta; we've been continually updating the version on the website. Dan will be attending iPhoneDevCamp this weekend to share and learn more secrets of iPhone development.
We're also adjusting our Sandvox designs slightly to better accommodate the iPhone. We'll have a minor update out soon.
