Upload bug fix

January 4, 2009

First of all, huge apologies for everybody trying to upload drawings without luck. We feel really bad for knowing how much time and effort many of you have put into drawing pieces, and then not been able to get them submitted for everyone to see.

We recently discovered that changes in the most recent Adobe Flash Player security model had broken our upload tool. So all of you who have updated to Flash Player 10, have not been able upload their drawings in thisissand.com. The matter has been fixed now, and if you reload (first clear browser cache) thisissand.com, you should be able to upload without problems.

Once again, apologies to everyone, and thank you for all the great feedback and wonderful drawings!

Bug/feature fixed!

August 20, 2008

As you might have noticed, we have updated our sand application, and it no longer has the bug/feature of being able to draw “on top of sand”. It wasn’t actually planned to be there, and it didn’t really fit the concept either, so we fixed it.

Some people were quick enough to use their creativity with it in many interesting ways, and thus we definitely want to keep those pieces in the gallery, even if we have a reason to believe that some of them were achieved with a little bit of help from programmable mouse pointer scripts…
