Dear COSTA alpha-testers,
Thanks to the help of some of the list members, the technical basis for the
project COSTA are now stable enough so I can make it an open beta.
Anyone having big or small logs can now enjoy a few statistics for free.
You just have to register to the following website :
Regarding this project, my goals for the next weeks are :
- to check for residual bugs
- to improve the statistics thanks to the feedback some of you already gave me
- to do some improvements in the code to reduce server load during intensive
- to check how the server is handling the load with the number of logs
I hope to have a "version 1.0" with its own domain name and maybe a dedicated
server in the beginnings of september.
