New server coming

LibraryThing was featured on Lifehacker and Metafilter, among others. My server is melting and service is a little slow. I’ll have a much faster one up tonight or tomorrow.

My email box is also filling with suggestions. For new-comers, here are some improvements I’m working on:

  • User-defined fields
  • British Library searches, then other library searches
  • “Power” editing, including applying tags to multiple books in one sweep
  • Bar-code/UPC/EAN numbers
  • RSS feeds
  • iPod export (so you can check if you have something)

At present I’m whispering soothing words to the server. Once that’s finished I’ll shift my attention back to features. Keep sending suggestions, comments and criticisms. The site has come a long way since it opened less than two weeks ago, and user suggestions have been absolutely essential.
