Continuing my Flume investigation ... Since the web frontend now seems to be 500-ing all the time I've resorted to only using the new version of the Windows client.
And it keeps crashing.
All. The. Time.
Weirdly enough it's not repeatable. I just get a "Inviolate access exception <random string of hex>. Report this to Microsoft yes [ ] no [ ]" style error every so often.
Annoying but I'm not particularly bothered. I've tried in vain to work out why Flume is getting so much hype. It appears to try and do a few things that other sites are doing but doesn't do them nearly as well. I'm getting a real feeling of "Selling the sizzle not the sausage".
And yet I hear on the grape vine that there's already funding on the way.
Christ on a bike.
Bubble 2.0. Silly valuations. SF people on Smart Drugs (well, Modafinil). A new Nine Inch Nails album. Anybody would think it was the 90s again.
