foursquare’s ups and downs
Hey all -
Sorry about some of the ups and downs we’ve been having recently. We’re still growing like a weed over here, now doing on average 600k checkins/day. We’re going to spend this week focusing on beefing up things on our end to try to minimize the unexpected downtime.
Tomorrow (Tues 5/18) we’re going to take the site down from 5am to 7am EST to make some changes that should help a lot. Apologies in advance for the downtime, but at least this time it’s expected (instead of a surprise!)
Thanks again for your patience with all this. Growing pains are hard, but we’re working on it!
