Just so you know guys we're doing some coding changes.. so flexcoin will be down for a few hours...  we needed to freeze everything when doing the changes.

updates will be either here / twitter (http://www.twitter.com/flexcoin ) or http://www.facebook.com/flexcoin

most likely updates will happen in all three ....

Thanks for the update, but I'm curious why as a "banking institution" you wouldn't implement version control systems for your software and website, as well as incorporate a staged development and seamless update process, so you don't run into issues like having to recode your website in the middle of an update ...

Mostly because we are still below what would be considered a version Smiley going forward we will give it a label number and work on staging server to keep this off public site

Doing final changes,  live at 9:30 EST sorry for long delay,  seriously took WAY longer than expected

So you only commit to your repository at v1.0? Makes total sense!

You're a so called "banking institution" and by nature you should not afford yourself this type of downtime, especially when it could have been avoided completely!

Supply/demand yo.  Take your business elsewhere, or start up a service that offers competitive alternatives

Bitching about service in a state controlled/regulated/monopolized market is one thing. . .let's face it, no one else can currently build highways.  But in the bitcoin economy, if you don't like a business' practices, you can take your business to a competitor, or become that competitor

It's all voluntary on a free market, throwing "should" around isn't really where it's at here

Just saying

I'm not complaining, my gripes are founded as a client of the bank. I currently have Bitcoin stored in Flexcoin, and so am interested in rising these questions while he is still stretching his wings. I expect to be able to withdraw money from any banking institution when I want, it's my money. If the service is only internet accessible, it should be available twenty four hours a day, seven days a week. I'm not saying it's inexcusable that he is not engaged in best practices, but it is a concern I have and would rather him think about now then later. If you can maintain uptime and have seamless updates (or close to it) ... why not take advantage of that?

Edit: As a client of Flexcoin, I am very pleased to hear about the planned implementation of a staging area/server.

Lets put it this way.. if there is/was a bug on the site. would you want them to temporarily suspend the service until the bug is fixed ? or leave it to be exploited ?

The only thing you can comaplin is bad planning. Even ATM's have outages - a couple of hours in the middle of the night after announcement. Expecting anon higly income service to be available 24/7 is an example of idiocy. He could put it into the middle of the night, which opens the question to which night.
