    So we launched the URoomSurf College Roommate Matching Service today! It was crazy... we had a countdown going on the site to launch it at midnight. We weren't expecting a lot of traffic, maybe 1 or 2 people who waited up... but we got 1000s of concurrent users all at once at midnight!!! Sheesh... it took the VPS down for a little while, and we had to upgrade it to 8x the size! :-D

    Anyhow, the site's up and running now! have a look through it and post your comments!!! Thanks! :-)

    Pretty cool site. I'm curious what your business model is. I see that you're going to add an Amazon style store. Is that where all your revenue will come from?

    I personally do not like the logo. It looks like a logo that's making fun of Web 2.0 clichés.

    This page is empty: http://www.uroomsurf.com/content/testimonials

    Overall I like the site design and the copy. Whoever wrote your website understands how to keep things short and readable, kudos! I knew exactly what the site was about very quickly.

    Keep up the good work.

    Thanks guys!

    Vin, it's not exactly my business... I developed the site for a client. They have multiple revenue sources from what I understand.

    Hallo! I like this chilly coloration of your website – the combination of green and blue brings calmness to my eyes and mood.

    Dorky,

    We've been getting too much traffic!!! The site goes down every day between 6pm and midnight EST.

    We're working hard on performance optimization to prevent this from happening.

    Very nicely done. I like the colors very much.
    I don't think your title tag is very good for SEO. Maybe something like college roommate finder ought to be included. URoomSurf won't mean anything to search engines. Plus you have it twice. Maybe URoomSurf | College roommate finder
    That makes 35 characters with spaces. Up to 66 will show up in a search result so you could even add another keyword or two.
    I would also encourage you to add a description tag as this is what shows up in a search result as well and is your "advertisement" for the site. You can use up to 150 characters with spaces and "sell" your site.
