We will be bringing our main database offline for about 30 minutes tomorrow night starting around 10PM EST (03:00 GMT). You won’t be able to login to your account during this maintenance window. However, you’ll still be able to use the web app and the iOS/Andrdoid apps just fine, provided you’re already logged in. Your data will resume syncing with the cloud (and between your devices) once we bring the database back online.
Sorry for the interruption. We’ll post updates on twitter @nirvanahq to let you know when we start and when we’re done.
We will be upgrading some of our backend systems on Saturday, February 8 between 1:00am-1:30am EST (6:00-6:30 GMT). You likely won’t notice a thing if you are already signed in to your account (on the web or via mobile devices), but you may not be able to login (create a new session) for 2 brief periods during this maintenance window.
Our apologies in advance for the forshadowed blip, but the upside is that we’ll be better prepared for growth on the flipside.
We will be moving some things around this evening, starting around 9 PM Eastern. Parts of Nirvana may go offline for brief windows, but if you’re already logged in before we start, chances are you won’t notice anything. Will update this post as time frames firm up.
After more than 3 years and 2 million tasks marked done, N1 has finally been put out to pasture.
For those who’ve been with us since the beginning, including the few thousand people who were still using N1 up until about 45 minutes ago, thanks for all of the feedback. You’ve helped guide the evolution of Nirvana into what it is today.
N2, henceforth to be known simply as “Nirvana” (in our dreams, right?) is now the new baseline. We are looking forward to getting back to the business of building new features into Nirvana without N1 lingering around as a boat-anchor.
We’ve made a herculean effort to transition all of the remaining N1 stragglers as seamlessly as possible, but if you happen to run into any difficulties please reach out to us over at support. Our biggest concern is folks running older versions of Internet Explorer. Nirvana targets the latest Chrome, Safari, Firefox and Internet Explorer… that means IE9. If you are running IE8 your experience will be less than stellar. If you are stuck in a corporate environment with anything less, we sympathize, and truly hope your IT department will accommodate getting you set up with a safe, modern browser such as Chrome.
So, there you have it. An end of an era. Onwards.
This blog post is for folks who’ve been with Nirvana since the early days of development.
Today is the last day to convert your account to Nirvana Plus for $29/year !
Be sure to login to your account and go Plus for uninterrupted service. Otherwise your account will be converted to Nirvana Basic tomorrow — which means that while you will still have access to all of your data, and you will still be able to create and edit tasks, you may not be able to create new projects (if you are over the Nirvana Basic limits).
Here is the support article that describes all of this in detail.
Please consider upgrading right now!
