Sorry for the long delay out. I'm sure you're not interested in personal details, so let me just say we are back in business for the new year.
We just migrated synchtube to a new back-end to make things faster. For the tech inclined we abandoned Haml for a faster front end layer, adopted head.js, upgraded to the latest versions of sinatra, and weeded through some old server code. Some minor interface tweaks were also done to handle the larger room sizes we have been seeing.
I'm also happy to see our daily traffic doubled during our time out. Thank you all for your support. Hopefully we can continue to improve your synchronized sharing experience as we try to scale up.
Cheers and Happy Holidays to all. Please report any issues in the comments below! :),
