Financial Crisis?

The stock market keeps dropping here in New York, and it isn't clear where it will stop. It is even having a big effect on daily life in the city: restaurants are less busy, and traffic is even less congested.

Is the financial crisis changing your life at all?

New Year, New Chat

Happy New Year everyone!

2009 has started with lots of work here at yappr! We removed our chat feature last December because it wasn't fast enough to support all the yapprs that were using it. It was responding slowly, and, worse, it slowed down the entire site.

Our engineers have been working diligently to improve yappr's performance and I hope you will notice that the pages return much more quickly.

And we finally introduced the newly re-engineered chat application. There will still be a few items to polish and fix, but chat should be faster, more reliable, and will not slow down the web pages at yappr any longer.

Please thank the engineers at yappr, many of whom slept overnight to get chat released to the web site!
