The Good, The Bad, The Ugly. (Sorry)

The Good

Beyond The Whiteboard is now “in the cloud”. What does that mean? Better performance. You should notice the site moving faster. Also, we can scale up the site with a click of a button now.

The Bad

We were down longer then we anticipated and are really sorry. Somewhere along the update process we messed up and had to rebuild the application environment and it took a long time.

The Ugly

If you posted something yesterday(anything after 1 am), you might have to repost. We’re really sorry. Luckily, we backup the site everyday and were able to restore 99% of all posts. We have already started researching the problem and are confident nothing like this will ever happen again.


We have amazing users and felt that being honest and upfront was the best approach. Hopefully the “Good” will be really good in the long run. This was not one of our “game changing” new features. However, those are going to start being released in the next week or so and will be great. Again, we are really sorry.
