Friday, January 15, 2010 goes live!

We're officially live today! is now a fully functional site.  It's not just a company website, it's also a platform for me to learn a bunch of different technologies at once.

It's mildly tuned for performance (basic steps such as running it through Google Page Speed and YSlow and taking care of the simplest issues); I'm following the YAGNI principle at this point and postponing further optimizations and features on the site until it's really necessary, I should rather spend my time on continued coding.

I've jumped the gun a little and put up some copy talking about Twirlpaper Wallpaper Changer, our first product which will allow users to experience new wallpapers based on their previous ratings without needing to manually select and download them.  I know, it's been long enough coming.  A few more bursts of obsessive-compulsive coding should take care of it.

As you may have guessed if you poked around a little, it's also a rather personal site for a company website.  I've sprinkled bits of ourselves into various pages, hopefully making it more intimate than a typical corporate web presence.

Thanks to Automattic/WordPress for their Creative Commons Sharealike licensed TOS and privacy policy, to OS Templates for the website template, and to all the FOSS folks and bloggers who contributed to the myriad of tools and code and software stacks necessary for this site to exist on the interweb (for the curious, a non-exhaustive and unsorted list: Firefox, ColorZilla, Firebug, PHP, MySQL, Apache, Gimp, Inkscape, Notepad++, Mercurial, TortoiseHg).

See you out there!
