Beta Access

Is this a new site coming or is it just the test server?

We have three tiers of development

  1. localhost
  2. dev
  3. production

That is the test server -- development tier. So test locally, then build and deploy to dev, test there, and then if that's good, build and deploy to production.

I used to be able to get into the test server by faking my cookies but you fixed it now :( – deleted Jul 30 '09 at 20:17
How do I login to the test server? – kinokijuf Jan 2 '12 at 19:49
@kinokijuf You don't. It's internal. – Adam Lear Nov 6 '12 at 15:27

It's just the test server.
