System Issue at 6:27 PM Eastern Time on Saturday, June 9th: Resolved

We experienced intermittent connectivity issue starting at 6:27 PM eastern time today — lasting exactly 18 minutes.  All modern Swackett apps were affected.

There was no data loss. The issue appears to be centered around a third-party data provider.

This issue has been resolved — and we’ve installed an alert to prevent it from happening again,

All services have been fully restored. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this issue.

Known Issue: Peep Clothing Calibration in Select Locations (Celsius Temperature Selected)

It appears there was a glitch in the custom Celsius temperature settings in the Personalization Center.

Peeps would sometimes appear with the wrong clothing — and spine badges were incorrect (off by 30 degrees or so).

Engineering has deployed a fix now — and will investigate further to make sure the issue is solved everywhere.

This issue has been resolved. We’re sorry for any inconvenience caused by this issue — and (as always) we appreciate your continued use of Swackett apps!

Known Issue: Processing Complex GPS Codes

Please do not include the degree symbol (°) in custom locations.

Please do not include N, S, W or E direction designators in custom locations.

And if in the western hemisphere, please include the dash () for latitude coordinates.

For example, Denver has an GPS coordinate of:

39.7392° N, 104.9903° W

But should be entered in the Personalization Center as:

Latitude: 39.7392

Longitude: -104.9903

This work-around will get you up and running while we address this problem on our servers.

This issue has been resolved. We’re sorry for an inconvenience caused by this issue — and (as always) we appreciate your continued use of Swackett apps!

Swackett servers in the eastern United States were not responding quickly enough between noon and 3 PM eastern time.

The problem has been corrected — and we will be watching the situation closely.

If you experience any issues please let us know,

Issue with Humidity Levels (Resolved)

Swackett engineers corrected a problem today that could allow humidity levels to appear as zero in the United States.  The issue was caused by humidity levels in our weather data feed reporting with more decimal places than expected — which could result in a rounding error in some cases. This effected all Swackett apps.

If your local humidity does not present as expected  — please let by know by submitting a tech support ticket.

We’re sorry for an inconvenience caused by this issue — and (as always) we appreciate your continued use of Swackett apps!
