Note: Henceforth, all TUEBL updates shall be collected into The One Thread TO RULE THEM ALL!
NEWEST UPDATE (1/18/2012): They’re baaaaaack!
Or at least, new servers for now. Here’s a few quick updates on our favorite online library:
Firstly, no, it’s not just your connection that’s magically gotten speedy all of a sudden, TUEBL is fast again! New year, new servers. Better able to handle the thousands of bookworms that visit the library on a daily basis.
Secondly, pretty soon it won’t just be the servers that are new, the whole site is getting a makeover. Yup, new TUEBL is on its way. A brand new site for the brand new servers, coming soon. Happy 2012 everyone! In the meantime the good-old-but-now-superfast TUEBL just hit over 7000 books, so go pick out some reading material to pass the time while you’re waiting.
And finally, if you’re still a little squeamish about free-to-all libraries invading internet space, check out the totally legit Ultimate Book Giveaway. Entering gets you a chance to win a copy of Little Brother by Cory Doctorow–a book you’ll never have to feel bad about reading for free!
So whether you’re waiting for those New Year’s resolutions to kick in, trying to keep spirits up amid the grey of winter, or just relaxing till the end of the world, head on over and check out the new and improved (and soon to be newer and more improved) shelves of TUEBL.
(Who says our generation doesn’t read?)
UPDATE : Yes, TUEBL has been under a DDOS attack and limping along for a little while since I posted this. I was just there a second ago and it was working, not sure if this means they’re all good now, but the point is this is a temporary injury and they will be returning in full force soon.
For now, try http://beta.tuebl.com (this is the new TUEBL I mentioned below and mentioned in the comments, still a work in progress but apparently functional.)
