I just thought I would touch base you everyone. I am interested in open sourcing pimp onto Github. If I get lets say 5 people interested in both looking at the code and updating it from time to time, I will do it.
Pimp is written in C#/ASP.NET/MVC 2.0/LINQ
I had this update sitting around for the past 3 months or so. It has been completed, and I can happily say, I just got done with testing it. So here is the deal.
Utopiashrimp.com is the NEW layout of Pimp. I will not be migrating this new layout for at least a month into the Utopiapimp, but it will come!
So here is what I am asking of the community. Please go to Utopiashrimp.com and give a real good once, twice or three times over. Come back to this blog post and go ahead and comment about it. Tell me your thoughts on what you believe it should be instead of what it currently is. I am here and will listen!
I will listen to every comment, and see what I can do to make sure things are changed properly. Remember, comment on this post, not any other. For now, this is the feedback I will put into Shrimp.
We have to take the DB down for a few minutes. Sorry about the unexpected take down.
I figured I would let you all know whats going on with both Pimp and my life.
Two months ago, I received an investment to create a software company. While I would like to go into the dynamics of the software company, I cannot at this moment. I would like to tell everyone that I have been devoting all my time and effort into this company and haven’t actually spent any day in the past two weeks or so on Pimp. I have many changes, I have been making to pimp. But I just haven’t found the moment I can devote to it, to both upload those changes and support you all when you come to me with questions.
I have a deadline for August 26th with my company. After this deadline, Im just going to devote an entire week to pimp to both upload those changes and make the Pimpers happy. I hope you can understand while I try and stand this Software company up on its feet.
I have NOT forgotten about Pimp. It is honestly on my mind EVERY day coming up with new ideas and things that can be improved upon. I just thought I would let you as the user base know where I stand. I have also been receiving plenty of feedback and I promise you all, its not lost on me. I am working at the feedback received.
I’m sorry Pimp was down today. The database took a day off and didn’t want to tell me about it first. I do assure you, that it’s all back up and running.
Just in case your not aware, Angel changed the way they format pages again, so I am working on it. This means, when creating a new kingdom, be sure to use a raw page instead of an Angel page.
I migrated the utopiapimp server over to a brand new spanking machine!! The only problem is that data is going to be a day old when we finally move the databases over.
So if you have done ANYTHING with pimp in the past 24 hours from this post, consider it gone and you must redo it. Sorry for the inconvenience, but we did it during the age down time so hopefully not much has been affected.
The server has been really slow as of late, mainly due to larger number of users. So we are upping the Ram used on it. Sadly, the hosting company needs to migrate us to new hardware first before they do it. So sometime on Friday, Utopiapimp will have about an hours worth of DATA LOSS. I will post another message as to when it will be, but sometime tomorrow is the plan. The data loss is due to migrating all the data to the new server and also updating the DNS records.
So when you log into utopiapimp on Friday, please make sure to CTRL+F5 before logging in. This will refresh your browsers cache and help with the migration.
btw, I am really close to finishing up the new design for pimp. Hopefully you all will be happy about the new change.
I have asked the UTools developer to change up the way he formats his pages to pimp, therefore allowing us to start coding for his tool. I think its one of the best. If your UTools page doesn’t properly work at this moment in time, please just use a raw format. I am working haste-fully on this.
I should start seeing improvements in the next week for it.
Please bare with me.
