Haulix Weekly Update #79 – “My eyes! The goggles do nothing!”

Hello, everyone. Thank you for making time in your busy schedule to spend a few minutes browsing our blog. The last few days have passed us by like no other, and we are all more than ready to embrace the relaxing vibes of the weekend. Before we get there however, we need to recap everything we have accomplished. We also need to share this song, which may be the perfect soundtrack to your weekend:

Each and every weekend we like to take a brief break from our regularly scheduled programming to update and reflect on everything happening at Haulix HQ. We are far more than a music blog, as many of you already know, and posts like this give us an opportunity to share more our efforts with all of you.


We will be performing a hardware upgrade in our servers on Sunday March 29 From 12:00PM-3:00PM CST.  There will be minimal downtime during the upgrade when all services will be unavailable.

We have started construction on the next version of Haulix. The new version will include many of your suggestions that we have collected over the last couple of years and will work in mobile devices.


On the blog end of things, our site moved a bit slower this week in comparison to those prior due largely to my (James) trip back from SXSW. I spent 15 hours in an airport on Monday, and that completely ruined my work schedule for the rest of the week. I didn’t even touch down in Boston until 3AM Tuesday, and then I spent the rest of the day asleep. The content we did run turned out great, at least in my opinion, and I hope you can find time to consume every last word:

Dear Music Blogs: Please Stop Fishing For Clicks

‘Coming Home’ With Leon Bridges at SXSW

Social Media Cannot Replace A Proper Website

Music Industry Job Board (3/22/15)

That is all we have for today. Thank you for your continued support.
