Whilst Text Is Beautiful has been online for a couple of weeks already, it is only over the last couple of days that we have started openly sharing it with the public. Since we had no real idea about how many users to expect, you could say this was an attempt to ramp things up gently. Already though, we have encountered some teething issues - some particular Wikipedia pages not processing to completion and problems with our load balancing that has been leading to request timeouts in periods transitioning to and from heavy load.

We are committed to providing a high-quality and reliable service, but we ask for your patience, especially as we smooth out the wrinkles revealed by this initial large-scale use. We fund the site personally so must tread a fine line between availability and cost-efficiency, but will always endeavour to support our users as best we can.
All important information and updates will always be released first on our blog so why not subscribe and keep informed on the continual improvement and evolution of the site.
