Hello Everyone! This is an update to let you know that some of our customers were experiencing outages this morning. This appears to be due to some network outage between some customers and where our servers are located.  We're hoping to roll out more servers in the future to mitigate the possibility of this kind of outage happening at all in the future. Please feel free to submit your email on GetZiptastic.com to get updates on these improvements.  Thanks! If you're still having trouble, I would like to know about it! It you can email me at tom@getziptastic.com that would be great!

Ziptastic Tip #2
Did you know that you can serve a mini local web server by just running the following command from the directory that you want to serve?

`python -m SimpleHTTPServer`

Your data will be available at http://127.0.0.1:8000/<filename>

Ziptastic Tip #1:
curl(http://curl.haxx.se/) is an amazing tool that many developers use to test and interact with API's. Ziptastic uses HTTP headers to authenticate. Here's how to set an HTTP header with a cURL request.
$ curl https://zip.getziptastic.com/v3/US/48867 -H "x-key: <your api key>"
with the '-H' argument you can add custom or standard headers to your request.

Hope that helps! Please feel free to message us with any questions you might have and we'll try and research and put together an answer for you!

A domain is no longer required to sign up or use Ziptastic! You can go to GetZiptastic.com to check out some other updates as well!

Updated the Ziptastic database! Also, fixed a bug in version 2 of the API where postal codes that aren't found return a 500.  Postal codes that can't be found should now return a 404 and some JSON!
