Gmail is Amazing

I'm so behind the times. I was one of the first people to get an invite. I got one from a googler a while back. I used it for about a month and then realized I should be using our @uncoverthenet.com emails, so I stopped using Gmail. Lately I've been traveling quite a bit and I have a mobile laptop that has integrated wireless so I can access the internet anywhere I go. But I've been finding that logging into each individual mail account is a pain. And using microsoft outlook or similar won't work. So yesterday I was tinkering around with gmail again and then I realized you can access your mail from up to 5 other accounts from it and create special filters. Like if someone important emails my work email, I can flag it to email my cell phone which would send me a text message. I'm off to tinker with it some more, but it is awesome!!

Software Update Complete

We finally completed the software update for the site. There are still a few bugs we are aware of
and are working on correcting them. However, if you see some, please contact us with the error you encountered.

You will notice all of the directory urls have changed to a more easy-to-understand format. The urls used to be in the form of www.uncoverthenet.com/dir/31/1.php , they have since been replaced with urls that give you an idea of what that topic is about. For instance: http://www.uncoverthenet.com/directory/Computers_and_Internet/Internet

Currently for the submissions, only credit cards are set up, but Paypal functionality will be added in the next few days. Edited 7/16 - Paypal has been added.

The next few days hopefully we'll have corrected all the bugs. Thanks for your patience during the upgrade!

With Any Luck .... We'll Launch Tomorrow

Here is hoping all the changes are ready and the import goes smoothly. We will be attempting the upgrade for tomorrow at about 10am. Saturday is the slowest day of the week for us and 10am, while not as good as 2am, it's a good time because our techs will all be online, web server guys etc. So we'll see. I'll keep you posted!!

Credit Card System Launched

While we are still waiting on the new software development to complete beta testing, we've launched our credit card billing. In the past we used 2Checkout, Paypal and Google Checkout and you could choose which one to use. Now your choices are Paypal, Credit Card, or Google Checkout.

In summary, we've removed 2CheckOut as an option. This is not to say we weren't happy with them, we just had to move on to something more scalable.
