Friday the 13th came early!

We're really sorry, guys.

Gil and Corey and our server hosts etc are working around the clock to exorcize a few recent demons from the Squidserver.

(We'd give the servers a good old hit with a wrench, only they're in Texas...and we're not...)


Just wanted to say we know it's frustrating, we know it's no fun, and we're on it.

Thanks for hanging in there.

Gremlins are gone

We had some trouble with our servers these past few days, believed to be caused by a nasty group of gremlins. Luckily, we think we just squashed the last of them, and all systems should be back to normal now.

Update: They're not all gone yet! You may occasionally experience a brief inability to reach the site as we work to get this fixed.

What happened to my traffic?

If you noticed a recent, sharp drop in traffic to your lenses, it's not as bad as it sounds. A few days ago, a small programming glitch put a monkey wrench in our traffic stats retrieval tool, which resulted in accurate reporting.

The good news is, we've got the problem fixed, and traffic stats/LensRank should be back to normal by Wednesday morning.

Sorry for the scare!

Amazon Alert

We seem to be having some trouble connecting to the Amazon API today. We are attempting to contact them for further details.

Until we get this resolved, expect intermittent results from the Amazon module. If you've selected specific Amazon products to be listed on your lens, please refrain from updating the modules until further notice.

Update: There was a temporary glitch in Amazon's system that caused this problem. It was corrected soon afterward.

In the beginning, there was Lens Creation...

(And last night, there wasn't!)

Yes, yesterday was a buggy day.

For a few hours last night and early this morning, our "Create A Lens" page had a hitch in it.

That's fixed now, and you should be able to make lenses like crazy.

If you're getting stuck anywhere, please let us know here.
