A short service announcement

January 20, 2011 § Leave a comment


What better way to start the first post here at our new developers blog for mathblogging.org than with an explanation why our site was down for a while today?

We had planned to start this blog for a while now. But today’s outage gave us the right motivation. For the first time we exceeded the free quota of the Google App Engine!

The people over at Google were kind enough to give us another free quota for the day so hopefully not too many people hit the brick wall of “quota exceeded”. Well, after barely using 1% of the outgoing bandwidth so far, you can imagine that we were a little surprised by the jump today.

We’re guessing this was spawned by this tweet from the wonderful Sarah Kavassalis of  “The language of bad physics” fame over at the PLoS blogs. It seemed to have piked when Hacker News at ycombinator.com got wind of it. Well, what can you do? To finish the good news, twitter tells us that at least 50 people have bookmarked mathblogging.org on delicious! That’s probably 47 more than before ;).

We’re certainly looking forward to spending more time communicating about little project here as well.
