43 Actions Web App: 43actions.com
We have now moved the servers over to a completely new host, whom we dearly love: Heroku. We think the uptime and quality of the service from here on will be a lot better. Thanks to you who stuck with us.
Here are the few things that didn’t make it through the beta, and won’t be available for now:
- Create new action by sending it to our @43actions twitter account.
- Jott support
- OpenID login (contact us with your username and email, and we’ll fix a password for you right away)
The big reason for the move, in addition to stability and speed, is that newer features will be much easier to implement. As a few carrots to make the medicine easier to swallow, we’re considering the following in the coming months:
- Twitter login
- Facebook login
- New monthly subscriptions to get access to donor features, instead of donating a single amount (we’re considering $3-7/month)
Also let us know what else you crave, or if you think we should prioritize some things. You’re as much in the driver seat now as ever before.
IMPORTANT UPDATE: Some users have reported crashes when logging in. This was caused by an old type of time zone settings that didn’t work on the new server. To fix this we had to reset it to “London” for those users. So next time you login, make sure you go to Settings and change back to your own time zone. Sorry for the inconvenience!1 year ago
We’re in the process of moving 43 Actions to the most modern servers available, on the brand new Heroku Cedar. This is a move quite unlike the previous one, where we merely exchanged server providers from HostingRails to Heroku.
Upgrading the entire application to work on a modern stack will allow us to more quickly add new features and have better performance and reliability. Some new features we’re contemplating adding is:
- Twitter login
- Facebook login
- Refreshed design
- New monthly subscriptions to get access to donor features, instead of donating a single amount
- Let us know what you crave!
If you’re excited to jump on board and help us beta test, sign in to the new server at this URL:
And be sure to email us (or send feedback in the app) if you find issues or have any comments.
Note: OpenID is no longer available on the beta server.1 year ago
Due to the many sorrows we’ve collectively had with our current hosting provider hostingrails.com, we’ve decided to finally make the move to our new home: The fantastic guys over at Heroku.
This will hopefully be a very seamless migration, but some things will, for now, cease to be available:
- Mailing in actions isn’t possible on our current heroku setup. (However, if you really need this going forward please let us know by emailing us. Your response decides how fast we approach this issue.)
- Posting tasks via Twitter (to our @43actions account) is also disabled for now.
You should start using the new 43actions right away (the data is moved from the old server as of yesterday, July 6th 2011). Until we move the main 43actions.com URL, you can access the new server through the temporary address fortythree.heroku.com.
Hopefully everything goes well! Let us know if it does, or doesn’t.

UPDATE July 17th: Some customers have notified us that their data has been lost in the migration to the new servers. If this happens, please contact our support email. The old server can still be accessed, albeit at the more cryptic URL:
The old server should still work for another few months or so, while we move over to the new, more stable system. Please note that the data you add on this server will not be automatically migrated over to the new server.
UPDATE Aug 2nd: We had some issues when viewing Projects, which should now be resolved. Please let us know if you have other problems.
UPDATE Aug 3rd: The newaction emails are now working again on the new servers! OBS: Remember to only send plain text emails. HTML emails will be automatically rejected.1 year ago
We’ve got quick notice on a massive server failure over at the 43actions.com hosting company. We thought these issues were behind us, but it seems not.
We’re in the process of switching hosting companies as we speak.
Our last backup of your data is from the morning of May 7th, and we hope to be back up with this restored data very soon. All data as to right before the incident is now restored intact.
We sincerely apologize for this.
Update: The server is up and running again, after a hellish up-and-down roller coaster ride since yesterday afternoon. We apologize profoundly for this incident. Again, we managed to keep all data intact.3 years ago
