We had a stunning first day out of the gate with NLTinterlinear.com. At least, I was stunned, and so was the server. We got so much traffic that our server couldn't take the load, and died a bloody, memory-swapping death. A friend commented: "I heard that your server crashed and you need ... to point to new servers. First off congratulations, since your site is popular enough to crash the servers! :-)".
So, we stayed up late, got up early, and have now moved the site to another, more robust location. Ah, growing pains! It's a good kind of pain.
Thank you to everyone who has expressed interest in and enthusiasm for the new site. Here are some of the comments that we have already received:
- "I haven't used this extensively yet, but the functions you've included seem incredibly useful. I can't wait to recommend it to the teachers and leaders of our church. . . . And will you have Hebrew tools available soon? Thanks for developing this great resource!"
- "I love the variety of tools! An interlinear and a reverse-interlinear. And the Greek text. This will prove to be very helpful. I'm sure this will become a standard resource for many of our leaders, especially those who haven't yet invested in Bible software such as Accordance or Logos."
- "This is a game changer for me!!!"
- "Just realized today that NLTInterlinear.com parses AND provides glosses for Greek words...WOW, what an OUTSTANDING resource."
Thanks, folks. What other input do you have for us?
