TakiToMe is in Beta stage. It certainly is. If you’ve got time to loose, try it. I mean, you do have to get registered first, in order to discover the ultimate of a crappy web app. Eternity to have but 3 words synthesized, that is, if the page doesn’t simply break…

Gosh, why do some not just try to get things working before announcing what appears to be craps?

Made me lose 20 minutes :)

Unfortunately, Transcontinental visited the site during a maintenance outage by our ISP, so YAKiToMe! didn’t have much control over Transcontinental’s experience. Suffice to say that we have thousands of satisfied users who have converted many tens of thousands of documents without incident over the last few months. These documents range in size from a few words to well over a thousand pages. Numerous positive online reviews in recent days has caused a spike in traffic that has loaded our server and slowed things down. We watch traffic carefully and will do our best to manage the load with our modest resources in order to give our users a positive experience. Again, we regret that Transcontinental had such a negative experience but we seriously doubt it had anything to do with our software quality. We’ve surveyed our users and 97% rate our quality as good to excellent.


The herd thanks you.
