Has the Economy Deterred App Devs Yet?

After a few weeks of chaos, we were finally able to get the site back up and running… on a dedicated server :). We shouldn’t be having any more breakdowns for a while.

Tomorrow we will release a beta version of a comment and forum system. Please let me know of any feedback you may have
