The changeover was not handled brilliantly between 0.2 and 0.3, and I
hear the complaints.

Why arn't I using the dev server? I am for the most part. The problem
stems from thinking that things are (mainly) bug free and deploying
where the deploy involves a database schema change. Suddenly you can't
roll back the change(s) so easily and it becomes moot whether you fix a
bug on the dev server or the live one, they're both broken.

Then this turns in to a series of bugfixes... and then the dev server is
out of sync...

I think at root it all stems from me being the only one working on it
and thus lacking the discipline to a) write tests, b) write good code
and c) deploy things properly. I'll try harder.

have fun,
