Haulix Weekly Update #108: “The doll’s trying to kill me and the toaster’s been laughing at me!”

Good afternoon, everyone. Thank you for finding a few minutes in your busy schedule to browse our company blog. Life has been rather hectic around HQ this week, and like many of you we are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the weekend. Before we get there however, we want to take a little time to reflect on everything we have accomplished in recent days. We also want to share this killer song with you, which has become something of an anthem for us as of late:

As I mentioned above, 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.

Development News:

After a few weeks of teasers regarding the new platform we’re sorry to say this week arrives with no new updates from the Haulix Dev team. Our small team is doing the kind of work that would usually be handled by 10 or more developers, and the progress they’ve made so far is nothing short of stunning. We cannot wait to share our new platform with all of you, but right now we must ask that you be patient just a little while longer. We hope to have all work completed by the end of November, but we cannot guarantee when the updated site will launch just yet. Maybe next week.

Blog News:

This was a weird week for a our blog team. James Shotwell, Marketing Coordinator for the company, actually abandoned his post behind a computer to travel to Pennsylvania for a speaking engagement at Mansfield University. While there, James engaged the student body with tales from the front lines of the war on piracy, as well as stories from his career in the industry. All that said, James still managed to churn out a bundle of great content, which you can find links to below:
