Its been a while since I released new features on myScoop. Things have been increasingly hectic here on my side of the world. However, I apologise for the lack of updates!
myScoop has moved over to its new host with only a few glitches here and there. The near-seamless transition took place during the hours of 8pm on Saturday 13 March to around 6am on the 14 March. This new host has tons more power than the previous and allows for a larger amount of bandwidth usage which makes way for more innovative features that you will be seeing soon. The host is also running off a more secure backend which in turn means more security for you.
With myScoop growing every day, it’s time myScoop got a more powerful and scalable home. With that being said, I have opted to host myScoop in England. This is due to the insane bandwidth costs in South Africa and by hosting in England and not America, Ill be keeping the lag to an absolute minimum.

I’m not going to go into too much detail as to how myScoop fetches your articles in real time so here is the short version of the chain of events:
