Maintenance Friday night, Feb. 5, at 10 p.m.

This upcoming Friday, Feb. 5, we’ll be doing some maintenance on the Ning Platform beginning at 10 p.m. This maintenance window will require us to take a 2 hour downtime. We don’t like to take downtime very often, so when we do choose to do downtime maintenance, we want to make sure to get a lot of key things accomplished. In this maintenance period, we’ll be doing upgrades on hardware, key systems and databases, which are all vital to keeping your Ning Network up and running in the future.

Using your Ning Network as a Twitter photo or video service

If you’re an active Twitter user (Tweeter?) you’ve likely wanted to share a photo or video with your followers. And if you’ve found yourself in this situation you’ll know that you can’t upload to Twitter directly. Instead, you need to use another photo or video service where you can upload your content, and then add a link back to the photo or video in your tweet. On a phone, this can be something of a tedious process.

Catch M Fever at MCoupe.com

The M Coupe, as well as the Z3 and Z4 Coupe, are rare shooting-brake sports cars produced by BMW from 1998-2002. MCoupe.com is the internet home for the active group of enthusiasts that own and love these special autos.

The M Coupe is perhaps the best example of the shooting-brake style of performance vehicles. In modern parlance this describes a small, two-door hatchback with a capable engine which sends it’s power to the rear wheels. This allows the wheels to be pushed to the far corners, maximizing the handling and creating a recipe for extreme performance. In the case of the M Coupe this formula produces an extremely fun-to-drive car with a face and body only an enthusiast could love.

Finding common ground at mepeace

mepeace.org is a network focused on interaction, information and inspiration for peace in the Middle East. It is an online destination for people on all sides of the issue to share their viewpoints and organize themselves in the pursuit of peace.
