Site Launch - RoaringApps.com
Application compatibility for Mac OS X Lion the wikidot way.
Today I am very pleased to announce the launch of my latest wikidot project, RoaringApps.com. This site was deemed special enough for me (a notorious scrooge when it comes to money) to splash out and buy a domain name.
Yes, it is a shameless attempt at recreating the popularity of http://snowleopard.wikidot.com - but it's worth it, I swear. You see, it always frustrated me how the aforementioned site was so popular, but did not use wikidot to its greatest potential. So I went about creating RoaringApps, and what was a going to be a small little project grew, and grew, and grew… into the most technically advanced wikidot site I have created thus far.
And while I could probably continue to work on the site in private for a couple more months, I have decided now is as good a time as any to release it to the world - at 1:11pm on 11/1/11 - corny, I know… but I like ones. There are still a few issues with the site that need ironing out (most of which arose in my last-hour testing on Firefox), and some sections were a little rushed to get it ready for today, but I am happy enough as it is to make it public.
Even if you're not into Macs, I encourage you to take a look around the site just to humour me - oh, and there's some pretty cool wikidot features in there as well. While I don't have time at the moment to list all of the features (there's less than 10 minutes to lift-off), I will write up some of my favourites in the near future.
The site will run in a beta phase for one week to iron out any last bugs, during which feel free to create fake apps, test comments and pseudo-developers.
And with that, here's the link:
