Business Insider just posted, “Fact-Checking and Copy-Editing Don’t Happen as Much on the Web,” citing a study conducted by The Columbia Journalism Review that compared publications’ print and web copy-editing standards. Turns out, 48% of online-only copy is edited less rigorously than print-only copy, while 11% of online-copy is not copy-edited at all! We had a feeling… good thing Spellr.us is here to help!

Here at Melon Media we've tried many different hosting options for scalable infrastructure. From dedicated servers, to Amazon EC2, to Rackspace Cloud Sites, they all have their benefits and weaknesses. What can be really interesting is how they handle when they get hit with a large traffic spike. When the pressure is on and time is critical, some systems shine and others... cause nervous breakdowns.


With ManageTwitter we decided to use a Rackspace Cloud Server instance for the first time in a production. It has some interesting benefits over other cloud options including the ability to be resized...

Wow, it's been a crazy 20 hours. After a surprising (and nice!) review on TechCrunch http://tcrn.ch/9sW6F3 traffic flew through the roof. We've gone from just under 400 users to over 10,000 and from just under 20,000 unfollows to over 500,000.

 

We're really glad people like the app. We've had it in the planning stages for several months. Everyone we mentioned it to who was an active Twitter user said they needed...

Hi All We have been working on upgrading some of our infrastructure - this means that the system will become a lot more responsive and glitch free. The new infrastructure should all be in place by the end of February. Thanks for your patience. Please drop us a line at help@spellr.us if you have any questions. Thanks. Kevin

Mick Liubinskas from http://www.pollenizer.com/ took a few moments to interview spellr.us’ founder Kevin Garber at TechCrunch50 about the event, Australian companies and the year ahead. We’ve embedded the video interview below. Thanks Mick!

Here at spellr.us we like to think that we’ve got pretty good at spell checking websites. However, we’ve been frustrated at the text spell checkers available online. They don’t run fast enough or have a clean enough interface. As a result we decided to try our hand at building a page that spell checks text only. Try our online text spell check here. We’ve included a few cool features like dictionary definitions of suggestions to help you choose better and a clean navigation system for quickly correcting all errors in a piece of text. Let us know what you think!
