The latest on 3x3Links

Early this month two popular blogs wrote about 3x3Links: Lifehacker and MakeUseOf. This led to an unplanned load (or stress) test for the whole service. It was pure luck my payed(!) Google App Engine traffic quota was high enough. Traffic jumped from 0.1 page requests per second to more then 16.

Thanks to all those new users, more then 1000 new logos have been uploaded (and approved by me).

Now things are back to normal and I'm processing all the user feedback and fixing bugs.

Localhost and IP address links
For example I fixed a bug making it not possible to assign logos for http://localhost:80/ or links. To fix the bug, you have to refresh (hit edit and save directly) your relevant links and upload a new logo. This logo will be only visible to you and directly approved. Nice, right?

What's next?
I will start accepting one-time donations from happy 3x3Links users. More on this later, but I can already tell that this is related to the need for beta testers: There will be special features reserved for donators...

Does 3x3Links feel a little slow right now?
Sorry, but this issue is known and the whole App Engine team is already working on this.


  1. Thanks a lot for this application. I've been using it on my home theatre PC for a number of days and find it incredibly simple and convenient. One request, though. Is there any way to enabling local application launching using 3x3?

  2. @Ikenna: Finally I found a workaround. Please check:'t_work

    There are workarounds in Firefox to call local files.
