Haulix Weekly Update #140: “Okay, the trampoline was a bad idea.”

Hello, everyone! This has been a week we will not soon forget. We have had so many ups and downs it is hard to keep track, but the weekend is here and we can finally breathe a sigh of relief. This song is making our day:

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:

Unless you have been sleeping under a rock this week you no doubt heard (and possibly saw) that the launch of our new platform did not go as planned. We tested our system thoroughly prior to launch, but a lot can change when we push something as large the our updated system out for the first time. In an effort to get things working properly once more as fast as possible we ultimately decided to roll back to our classic platform, which is what you will now see if you visit haulix.com. Our current plan is to retool the updated platform and try for a second launch once the industry has taken its holiday break in late December, but that might change between now and then. We will keep you updated.

Blog news: 

Our blog took a backseat to our development needs this week, but we did manage to run a few posts that are worthy of note. If you missed anything as of late, especially our podcasts, please head over to our archive and catch up ASAP.

That’s all we have for this week. Check back here on Sunday for an all-new music industry job board.
