    Hi everyone,

    We've updated the database, php, zend and ioncube today. Total downtime would be around 10 minutes but distributed over several occasions.

    Hopefully this will solve the problem that we have to reboot every second month. That was related to the database I think. Possibly due to our enthusiastic use of the full text search engine.

    There might be a few other very short downtimes when we tweak some new settings on the database. They should not exceed 1 minute or so.

    Best regards,

    Yep, noticed one of those blackouts during tagging recently. Good thing I keyword in an Excel sheet and not online. ;-)

    How is the official launch coming along?

    Hey friendly Pond-5 People!

    September's here...
    How 'bout a nice launch?

    No, seriously, what is your -tentative- date?

    We're all dying to know and with the new season starting right now (Labor Day is over in the US) I think this is the perfect time

    Anything to report on the new launch Pond5 people?

    I think you'll get a lot more participation from contributers once we know what's going with your new launch and when it's going to be.

    Hey guys,
    You can expect the 1.0 in late Sept or Early Oct. I know, I know, it's a little delayed, but it's gonna be great -- so thanks for your patience, and thanks for keeping us on our toes! ;)

    Ah, such enthusiasm! ;)

    We're definitely well on our way... The word for now is sit tight, keep shooting, and expect something soon. Yes it's a vague term, and we know y'all are getting a little impatient (we are too!), but we're pushing back the 1.0 a little more, with the idea that it's better to do it right than to do it fast. It will happen when it happens folks, and it will be well worth it when it does, we promise. :-)

    Hey phantomewo, congrats for the sales!

    New Caledonia is a very beautiful island indeed! But too far from the rest of the world! haha I'd better shoot a lot all this beauty while I'm here (leaving next year).

    Can't hardly wait Grand release too! (but no sales yet :p )
