Server upgrade!

As we promised, we upgraded our server hardware to hold more S60 theme downloads. We just transferred the site to the new server and except for a small downtime for some of our visitors, everything seems to be working just fine. We will be watching the site closely in the next 48 hours to make sure everything is like it should be. We apologize for any problems in advance and honestly hope that this upgrade will improve the free Symbian S60 theme service.

Another good news, we will soon hit one million theme downloads since the site first opened in March 2008.

Problems with the site!

Today for about an hour Symbian Themes was down due to a unusually big spike in the theme downloads. In less then an hour there were more then 40.000 theme downloads which crashed our server and left the site unavailable for the period. We are currently running on backup hardware so there might be some problems with opening the site in the next 24 hours.

We are already talking with our hosting provider in order to install new hardware that will support  this kind of load so that our visitors will be able to download free S60 themes without any problems. We apologize for any inconvenience and we assure you we are doing our best to keep this site up and running.

Symbian S60 5th edition themes

With the release of Nokia 5800 XpressMusic and the announced Nokia N97 the Symbian S60 5th edition is now reality and along with it the S60 5th edition themes for Symbian with touch screen support.

"Carbide.ui 3.3 Theme Edition adds support for the identification of S60 5th Edition theme graphics and features for editing 3- and 11-piece components. In addition, updated third-party-icon capabilities provide for the creation of custom icons for the files and folders associated with third-party applications and services."

Having this in mind our site was updated to support the new features needed by the Symbian S60 5th edition themes, we added the known devices and features like the 360x640 display. So, soon and I personally hope very soon we will be featuring the first S60 5th edition themes on our site. 360x640 themes will be available in just a few weeks and even sooner.

0.5 million themes downloaded

Wow!!! Well this is really something. I hoped that it would be at least one year to get 500.000 theme downloads but it seems like we made it in just eight months. The good thing is that we got prepared well for this. The new servers are up and running and the download speed seems to be improved. We made a few changes to the site so it opens faster. All in all we are very busy to do what we do and trying our best to keep this site up and running.

I want to use this moment to express our gratitude to all the theme designers who supported us and continue to make this site one hell of a place to pimp your phones. Thank you!
