Protopage longevity

Wednesday, November 19th, 2008

It has recently been announced that a competitor of ours, YourMinis, has shut down its start page, and we’ve had a number of emails asking nervously whether Protopage is safe. We’re extremely lucky at Protopage to have very low costs and to not rely on venture capital or any external investors in order to provide […]

Happy new year!

Monday, January 1st, 2007

Happy new year from all at Protopage! We’ve been releasing incremental performance improvements over the last two weeks – hopefully you’ve noticed the difference. We’ll continue to optimize the platform for maximum speed. We’re currently working on a number of things including a Frequently Asked Questions page. Look out for more new features in 2007!

V3 Help

Monday, November 27th, 2006

Please note that you can click the ‘twister’ to reveal more categories. This seems to be the most common reason for not being able to find tabs imported from your old Protopage. We’re also getting feedback in from people who have accidentally deleted tabs. We thought this might happen, so we took precautions. Any widgets […]

Firefox upgrade recommended

Tuesday, April 18th, 2006

For those using Firefox to access Protopage – an important bug has been fixed in the latest Firefox release. This bug, which only affected Firefox users, caused news feeds to rapidly reload and very occasionally resulted in a browser crash. We are very happy to inform you that Firefox have fixed this bug and […]

We’re currently working on an array of new features and improvements for version 3 of Protopage – including an update of the look and feel. Thank you all for the marvellous suggestions sent in so far – Protopage will continue to evolve until we’ve implemented every one of them!

Smart save and data center upgrades

Friday, March 17th, 2006

We will be upgrading our servers on Sunday in order to handle extra traffic and to make your pages load faster. We estimate that Protopage will be out of service for up to 45 minutes during this upgrade. We have chosen the time that the fewest users are online, which is Sunday morning. The upgrade […]

4 hour relocation window announcement

Monday, February 6th, 2006

We will be moving the Protopage server cluster to a new, state-of-the-art data center on Sunday 12th February. We are making this move because one of our core priorities is to provide you with excellent uptime so that you can rely on Protopage being there when you need it. We will also be adding hardware […]

RSS indexing upgraded

Monday, January 16th, 2006

We’ve just upgraded our RSS/Atom news feed indexer – this should solve the ‘We are currently indexing this feed. Please wait…‘ issue where custom feeds were taking some time to index. Feeds should now always complete their initial indexing within a few seconds.

Panel detailing and color balancing

Tuesday, January 10th, 2006

We’ve made a few minor alterations to the color schemes with today’s maintenance release. You’ll notice the new ‘stitching’ styling, along with color balancing that will make your Protopage look better when you combine panels of different colors on the same page. We’ve also made some assorted bug fixes including further improvements to the scrollbar […]
