adminCritical Strategy Meeting
September 17th, 2008 by admin

As some of you may already know, our 친애하는 지도자, Mr. Jong-ILL has been facing minor health issues in the past few weeks.  Although things are certainly looking better, we must nonetheless prepare ourselves for the eventual shift in the geopolitical landscape.

The overseer of Propaganda and Agitation Department, Mr. Kim, has been a demanding leader.  Together with our supreme commander Feldmarschall August Von Mackensen, Mr. Kim has taken us on a path to unprecedented economic results.  His execution and strategic capability have been unmatched by any modern leader.

Let’s all sit down for a review of the Jong-ILL administration and take close look at our present and future challenges.

You’re all invited to Saasta’s Critical Strategy Meeting (CSM) on October 18, 2008. This day conveniently marks the anniversary of the fall of the Byzantine Empire in the  Battle of Dyrrhachium, giving us an honorable excuse for celebrating our success until the wee hours.

adminNew features and improvements
August 21st, 2008 by admin

Nice to be back on the mike again..

My minions have been hard at work to improve the site.  Here’s a quick rundown of the changes we’ve accomplished during the past few busy weeks.

We added so-called “share buttons”.  Single post view (e.g. now sports this fancy bar:

For those true Web 2.0 fanatics out there, use the links to share Saasta in your network.

We’ve also done several UI tweaks.  Post headers look nicer, RSS feeds are more visible, etc.  Other fixes include a recent faves list that actually works, improved consistentency in navigation and better titles.

Not that our improvements would be limited to only UI tweaks. We also put our minds together with the masters of Mountain View to improve the way our site is indexed.  This should give you more relevant searches when you use Google to search for your favorite Saasta content.

Lastly, to help our users keep up to date with all these new features, we went and added a Help page that contains links to various articles explaining our unique features and how they add value to your Saasta Experience.

Please let us know if something has broken, you disagree with our changes or you think you have an idea for the Next Big Feature that Saasta must implement.  As always, use our anonymous Suggestion Box to send us your valuable feedback.

adminSuomen kieli / Use of the Finnish language
June 25th, 2008 by admin

Makkonen tässä hei,

muistuttaisin teille postaajille, että jos postauksesi vaatii lukijalta suomen kielen taitoa, on aivan ok kirjoittaa koko postaus suomeksi. Tietty jos tuntuu siltä, että englanniksi homma onnistuu nasevammin, niin mikäs siinä.

Rules of Conductista quotattua:

Suomen kieltä ei täydy nöyristellä. Postauksen alussa ei tarvitse pyydellä englanniksi anteeksi sitä, että postauksesi, sen otsikko tai tagit ovat suomeksi. Kyllä suomea osaamattomat tajuavat ilmankin, että postaus ei heille aukea.
