Agent 1.92 Beta Update

There is only one thing more embarrassing than missing a software release deadline and that is missing the same deadline twice. The original target for Agent 1.92 was the end of May. We moved it to June. Now, we are looking at mid-July.

Thanks for hanging in there. We owe you an explanation.

Data Center Migration

During June, we relocated our east coast office which also happens to be Mark Sidell's house. Since we like to run lean and mean, our Data Center is also in Mark's house.

Furthermore, our DSL provider unexpectedly closed up shop in June and we had to scramble to find a replacement.

Then, to add to the excitement, two of our servers croaked during the move. On June 12, our Email, Web and DNS were down for almost 24 hours.

Fortunately, we've righted the ship. We now have a BellSouth T1 line with a guaranteed service level. All our servers have been migrated to their new computer room. We also have plans for a fully redundant Data Center on the other side of the globe. Seriously.

The Mark Sidell CAM

To allay everyone's fears in the coming weeks, we've erected the Mark Sidell CAM. Use this page to get a live snapshot of Mark's development lab. This way you can tell whether Mark is actually writing Agent code or loafing. It probably won't be as popular as the Jenni CAM, but who knows?

More Content From Forté

We've gotten a number of requests from the Agent Community for more content. We've also made some subtle promises to be more vocal about our plans and our philosphy. In the coming weeks, we plan to make good on those promises.

Please stay tuned and thank you for your support.
