Haulix Weekly Update #84 – “All I Want Is To Be A Petty Thug”

Hello, everyone. Welcome to our blog. The fast-rising temperatures tell us summer is not far around the corner, and as we look around the office this afternoon it’s clear everyone is excited for the weekend ahead. We don’t want to impose on your plans, but if you need a fresh soundtrack for your life you could do a lot worse than this:

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.

Reminder of Scheduled Maintenance:

We will be performing general patch updates in all of our servers this Saturday, May 9, from12:00PM CST – 4:00PM CST. There will be some minor downtime during the process and services will be unavailable.

If you have any questions, please contact us at support@haulix.zendesk.com.

Development News:

We have said this before and I will say it again, there is no new development news to report this week. As most of you know, we are currently in the midst of a complete platform makeover, and as such there are many big and small projects being tended to at one time. We have been making advancements. In fact, we have made many each week, but right now we are working on things that behind-the-scenes and we don’t feel like boring you with the details of all that entails. When something client facing is changed, we will let you be the first to know.

Blog News:

We pride ourselves on making every week the blog exists one that is filled with unique and engaging content. This week was no different, and even though we were unable to release a new episode of our podcast the items that were published seemed to resonant with readers. Some may have noticed that the kinds of content we run is beginning to evolve, with more talk of industry changes/news than ever before. We think it adds a nice new layer of coverage to our efforts, but if you disagree please let us know. This site exists to help YOU thrive, and we can do our job well if you tell us what works best to accomplish that task.
