State of the republic (v. 1, issue 5)

Blog Post created by sarahd on Oct 4, 2012

Even with our big move to N.C. State’s Centennial Campus, we’ve been busy as bees preparing for upgrades and updates. Here’s where we are this week:


Upgrades: We know these are overdue and we truly appreciate your patience as we fine-tune this process to make sure everything is in its right place. We ask that you hold on just a little bit longer.


Waves: Wave F is currently open for purchase through Friday October 12 at 11:59 p.m. ET. Please keep in mind if you’re choosing the dual-band DEFY XT, no action is required on your part. We’ll make sure you get info on purchasing your dual-band phone once it’s available.


OTA update: Tomorrow, theproductguy will be posting some info on our next OTA update, so keep an eye out for that.


An exciting update: Last Thursday, we released an update for the issue members were having with audio dropping on Wi-Fi after about 10-30 seconds. We’ve completed post-release testing and can happily confirm this issue has been resolved. Please let us know if you’re still experiencing this issue here.


Over the edge: Thanks to all of your generous donations to the Special Olympics, I’ve reached my goal and will be going “over the edge” this Saturday October 6 in downtown Raleigh. That doesn’t mean you can’t still donate though. If you’d like to make a donation, please check out my discussion Send sarahd "over the edge". Don’t live near Raleigh, but would still like to see the event? You’ll be able to stream the event live using this link. The event takes place from 8:30 a.m. ET until 5:30 p.m. ET.  My rappel time is 10:50 a.m. ET. I’m so excited!


Move: We’re all settled in at our new digs on N.C. State’s Centennial Campus. The move was a success and we’ve got lots of room for growth!


Those are all the updates we have right now. Feel free to post your comments and questions here.
